Uncommon Places by Stephen Shore (1973-79)

PICKS OF THE WEEK:
  • What Goes Up? | RIOT CODE                                                                                                                                     

Bouncing and hard-hitting techno bangers, harsh sleazy electro, twisted jungle, dopey Jamaican inflexions, ravey, ghetto-tech and acid house undertones, all of this and much more in the absolute ‘take no prisoners’ 50 minutes set from the Irish duo Riot Code, perfect to start the week with an outburst of unabated adrenaline-fueled energy.      

  • Lyon, France electro/new wave/synth wave/electronic producer S T R K T U R – “Mémoires” from the new album “Hors Série”.                                                                                                                                       

Lyon producer delivers a new EP of mechanical cold synth wave with at least 4 episodes worth of attention, through pulsing and bouncing hypnotic rhythms unfurl in treacherous bassline’s erratic pull awash by icy/warm ominously enshrouding synth expansions, glowing around deep minimal vocalizations glitching hypnotic echoes into synthetic dancing prowess.

  • Italian/South Korea Italo disco/cosmic/electronic collaboration, Daniel Monaco & Shubostar – “Disco Star Machine (Freudenthal Remix)” from upcoming “Lone Comet” EP on Wonder Stories                                          

Dope as usual trance-inducing cosmic remix by Berlin-based Feinstoff label head Freudenthal of Daniel Monaco & Shubostar track, with those chillingly heart-racing “Blue Monday” rhythmic echoes that trip up high energy and mischievous moods scurring along prowling bass line trickery, cut with thunderous disruptive beats revolving around sparkling and fluttering effects with icy bright synth notes, piercing the spacey glowing glaciers into retro-futuristic dance grooves.

  • Rennes, France Italo/cosmic disco/electronic producer BLAISE BALDA “Moon Quest (Original Mix)” from upcoming “Color Square” EP on Paradiso Records

Brilliant cosmic Italo-tinged mesmeric disco from Breton producer Blaise Balda with mellow hypnotic waves of punchy beats, rattles, and claps cut groovy body rhythms, lit with bright spacey synth swirls awakening into a glowing flutter, as low pulses crawl with bassline treason, amid airy entrancing vocalizations brimming with summery dancefloor dreams.
