Weekly Electronic Music Tips – DECEMBER/JANUARY #01 – 23

PICKS OF THE WEEK:

  • Cutups – Italian Danse 1990 [MIX]                                                                                                                         

 Pittsburgh‘s veteran electronic DJ Geoff Maddock, resident at Lazercrunk @Brillobox, delivers an intense and energetic mix of New Beat, Italo Disco, Industrial Danse, and Electronic Body Music. The sound of the future is now!

  • Frankfurt am Main slow techno /downtempo /tribal /breakbeat /psych /wave /trance /electronic producer Tassilo Vanhöfen – “Kashmir” from V/A “Unreleased Territory vol. 4” compilation on Electric Shapes

German sound explorer delves, as usual, into the downtempo psychedelic side of dance music, drifting off seamlessly into a tantalizing and sultry ethnic-tinged drive of hypnotic snares, chug-filled groovy percussions, swelling percolating basslines, airy esoteric breaths, fluting flutters, and glittering synth drips that transport the listener on a trip down the rabbit hole of uncanny exotic hypnotism. Check out the additional huge cast of producers delivering a rich smorgasbord of trippy workouts.

  • The Hague native ambient /Balearic /breaks /acid /techno /analog electronic producer, DJ, live performer and visual artist Cris Kuhlen, AKA Dazion – “Glasgow” from V/A “Driving Blind (Vol.3)” compilation album on Les Yeux Orange

Dutch producer with a nostalgic-bent smooth jam that sways amid steady lashing rhythms, scattered crisp percussions, blissfully melodic wistful synth drifts, flashing chiming chords, and groovy guitar glimmers to build an immersive sultry and sensory aural Balearic-tinged affair that dances somewhere between the shimmery magic hours of sunset and twilight.

  • Florida based industrial /minimal wave /acid /breakbeat /electro funk producer and co-owner of Vanguard Sound, Chris Mitchell – “The Rail” from upcoming cassette album “Rip Run Ride Die” on Dead Channel Records

Chris Mitchell returns on Dead Channel label, ‘delivering 7 tracks of mutated psych-apocalyptic acid, icy minimal wave, and blown-out machined rhythms’. Centered on an urgent and hypnotic rhythmic foundation of slamming snare beats, entrancing hi-hats, muffled tight percussions,  raw acidic droning and swelling basslines, muted euphoric vocal loops and lilting tinny chimes, “The Rail” obsessively throbs and wobbles in a circular trance charged with relentless energy and  dancing vibrations.
