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.
Post-rock, math-rock, prog-metal… Not quite sure how to describe Kolt, a band out of Skopje, Macedonia, but I like their energy a lot!
Two radio programs to share from Jan Sneum, a wonderful radio host and commentator I met at the Without Borders Festival in Balchik, Bulgaria.

Yes, you’re reading this right. This one is dedicated to yours truly.
Jos Smolders, the legendary Dutch experimental composer and sonic alchemist, worked on this project in Easter, 2014. To say I’m both thankful and honored for the dedication is a massive understatement. It is perfect evening listening, even after more than a year of its release here on Soundcloud.
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.
I can’t say that I know much about Bulat Gafarov personally, other than he’s both a fine multi-instrumentalist and a friend on Facebook, but he’s really quite an amazing talent. An ethnic Russia, he’s comfortable with music from India, China and Central Asia, as well as the regional music of places like Tatarstan and Siberia.
It pays to scroll through various social media from time to time. Today’s Soundcloud scroll brought me to the music of Bjørnar Habbestad, a Norwegian composer of avant-garde and improvisational music. I don’t know if this particular piece is part of a CD or just a live improv, but this made for some incredibly good listening this afternoon.
Beautiful dark ambient my Italian composer Marco Lucci.
Many thanks to Diana of Standgericht, who sent me some material she’s working on for an upcoming album release. If you have a passion for Electronic Body Music of a more brutal type, this will be worth waiting for.
