Ad Astra is a project of Zane O’Brien, one of the most creative minds working in electronic music today. This release is one of the better experimental electronic releases I’ve heard in quite some time.
[Music] Jönsson Tõll & Mauno Koivisto – Mulla Ei Oo Aavistustakaan Mitä Tää Kaikki Paska Suomeksi Tarkoittaa
Two identities, one artist. Jönsson Tõll is a composer who is based out of Portugal. This release features some of his own work, plus more under his working monicker, Mauno Koivisto. Of of the most beautifully bleak techno albums I’ve heard in ages.
[Music] Woob – DEATH BY COIN-OP Undead Countdown — Season 9
Tonight at one minute to Midnight (BST) the Woob Album ‘DEATH BY COIN-OP’ will become the undead and will no longer available to buy with only its certificate remaining.
[Music] Sten Erland Hermundstad – Pictures Of A Piano
Sten Erland Hermundstad is a Norwegian pianist I stumbled across while cleaning out my Soundcloud account. He plays in a truly sublime fashion and would have done well had he been signed to an appropriate label like ECM Records.
[Music] Björk – Pagan Poetry
Björk seemed to be peaking when she recorded this track for her 2011 album, Vespertine. If you’ve ever had the chance to hear this in 5.1 Surround Sound, it’s a delight to the ears.
[Music] Mark O’Leary – Isafjordur
Mark O’Leary has a new album on TiB Productions, and this track makes for perfect cold-day listening.
[Music] The Diplomatic Core – Monsieur Claude 2012-2015
My friend Christopher (a.k.a. The Diplomatic Core) is a tunesmith par excellence. He’s constantly reworking material, forging some very groovy beats in the process. Follow his work on Soundcloud here.
[Music] Samuli Kemppi – RYC Podcast 127 (19.06.2015)
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.
[Music] Casa de Orates (Manuel Knwell) – Nostalguia
I had never heard of Manuel Knwell of Casa de Orates until today, and Tarkovsky tributes are a dime a dozen, but this was rather pleasant, atmospheric listening.
[Music] Rudolph Johnson – The Highest Pleasure
Soulful jazz-funk by Rudolph Johnson, who sounds like someone Kruder & Dorfmeister would have ripped a riff from.
