Weekly Electronic Music Tips #49

PICKS OF THE WEEK:

  • New York‘s hardware-based electronic DJ/producer and The New U.S. Government head Michael Padgett, Ole Mic Odd “Get The Fffuck Out” from V/A “The Best of NYH Part 2” second part of two-volume compilation to celebrate 5 years of Tilburg‘s New York Haunted label

Like it or not, Tilburg-based New York Haunted runs by Vincent Koreman a.k.a. DRVG CVLTVRE is undoubtedly one of the most eclectic and progressive labels around, always ready to highlight a consistent batch of talented young producers. Now it’s time to celebrate 5 years of glorious activity with two-volume best-of compilation album series. The lo-fi acidic ghetto electro jam by New Yorker Ole Mic Odd is one of my faves…

  • Detroit based experimental/dark techno/electro producer Francois Dillinger “Afraid of Nothing” from the new EP “No Reentry” on the Latvian label Blind Allies.
