[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.

[Music] Fred Lorca – Sonic Gringo

Imagine if DAF discovered cumbias in the 1980s with lo-fi equipment, but made up for it with a high, hazy, nearly psychedelic level of energy? Friends, I give you Fred Lorca, a composer originally from Argentina who had been residing in Spain for some years, and is, perhaps, once again residing in the Southern Cone.

This album isn’t imbued with kitschiness like, say, Señor Coconut. Think Yello, as this has a driving, danceable rhythm while maintaining its focus. That doesn’t mean it’s all serious, as there are small, cheeky interludes, and a feeling of a gang-land soundtrack in these rhythms.

[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.
