I wasn’t quite sure what to make of glič, a DJ out of Manchester, England. Within a moment, any concerns were immediately allayed with his really funky groove. His music and the music of the artists he’s remixing covers R&B, electro and delves a bit into dubstep.
glič reaches back to Manchester’s venerable tradition of electronic music, and he updates the hell out of it in these remixes.
Imagine a Japanese Tina Turner clone singing on top of a muffled, claustrophobia-inducing drum & bass track upholding a 60s soul groove. This is the glorious mess Thomas Gerendás and his collaborators have made.
Precisely what the doctor ordered for such a dark, gloomy day outside. Luke Vibert (Mr. Wagon Christ himself) offers up some dark, jazzy down-tempo music to enjoy.
A novel idea! I never thought to look for podcasts via Youtube, but it makes perfect sense.
Samuli Kemppi is a Finnish techno artists unafraid to experiment with electronic music under his own name rather than under a heap of aliases. He’s also a DJ for Basso Radio, and this podcast gives a good demonstration of the sort of electronica he spins on air.
Albanian gypsy music meeting electronica, perfectly balanced? Kudos who Fanfare Tirana and Transglobal Underground for this massive hit!
Jere Häkkinen (Luomuhappo) is from Finland, and produces a rather impressive version of drum & bass.
I can’t say I follow much IDM anymore (or EDM, Breakcore, or whatever the name the genre passes itself off as this week), but I’m really enjoying Venetian Snares tearing up the computer speakers right now.
