[Music] Time Traveller – The Way Of The Iron Fist (Part 1)


It’s time to wrap up things for the end of the year, and the next couple of posts will help me close up shop for 2018.  I want to thank Alberto Matsumura for his friendship and for sending me a loud, electro, proggy, Neu!-ish killer of a space-rock/techno mish-mash EP to enjoy.

[Music] glič – Propr Gangst – The Remixes


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.

[Music] Redefining Russian Techno

From the Bandcamp article, which can be found here:

Russian techno is stylistically varied—from ultra industrial to sleazy disco, hazy cassette labels to crisp and urbane house. But often there’s a moodiness, an underlying bleakness to the sound that feels like it’s channeling a harsher Soviet past. Certainly, experimentation is rife, and “live”-ness is important—musicians performing live hardware shows seem to be every bit as important as DJs. But most important of all, there’s a freshness, a lack of cynicism, a sheer delight in crazed sounds and textures that can make even the most familiar musical tropes feel like you’re hearing them for the first time.
