Nosaj Thing – Live from London

Nosaj Thing

After last years Drift LP, Nosaj Thing has confounded a worldwide audience of open-minded ravers with his unique marriage of glitchy electronics, dubby instrumentals, bumping beats, and a fuzzy blizzard of blazed ambience. He has found the perfect home on Alpha Pup, bringing a certain cinematic atmosphere to the West Coast beat scene. His live performances see him racking his samples along his trusty Akai MPD 32, and re-interpreting his tracks with frenetic energy, in stark contrast to the deep tones of his studio productions. His music has also struck a chord with film makers like Dugan O’Neal, and last year he completed a rack of remixes for the likes of Blank Blue, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Nalepa, Freeland, and Boris’ Buzz In: AV remix project. Beneath the calm, placid exterior, there’s a storm brewing. via RBMA Radio

The Monroe Transfer – Trials

The Monroe Transfer – Trials
released 03 May 2010

“So there’s a man and a woman and they’re on a train
they’re travelling across an entire country
just two bags between them
looking for something

They’re looking for a reason why everything they loved started to fade away
They know each other so well now, they don’t ever really need to talk
They just look out of the train windows
look at the countryside rolling past them
look at the frozen winter fields.
They don’t really know what they’re looking for
but they’ll know it when they see it.

They don’t talk much.
They hold hands
and look out the window.

They’ve been on the train for a long time now
The farmers are burning the chaff out in the fields
There’s smoke in the air
and the sun’s so low on the horizon, it looks like it’s setting fire to the
earth.
And they still haven’t found anything.
And the train’s still rolling.
So they hold hands and they wait. “

– Lyrics of Frozen field, burning field

Yellow6 – Cut

yellow6 – Cut
Release date: May 10, 2010

CUT is the 10th full length album by Yellow6, and 79th release overall. Recorded between January 2009 and January 2010 and mastered by Mark Beazley (Rothko / Trace recordings), CUT contains 9 tracks and 70 minutes of minimalist guitarscapes, repetition and melody. These songs take the listener on a journey, seemingly suspending time for their duration, with intertwining guitars, piano and percussion, and featuring drums by Dave Collingwood (Gravenhurst, Yann Tiersen) on diagnosis (two).

Lighter and more spacious than some of the former Yellow6 releases, melancholy melodies are augmented with hopeful, and even upbeat, songs. The song cycle CUT is the recurrent theme of the album appearing in a number of variations throughout. via yellow6

Background Techno Experience Episode 89 : Echospace

PLAY

A Detroit-Chicago collaboration between prolific and low-key ambient dub-techno producer Rod Modell (Deepchord) If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the fellows in Berlin’s Rhythm & Sound camp will have no problem endorsing Detroit-based Deepchord as their dub-techno heir apparent. Already an established ambient producer, Rod Modell partnered with Mike Schommer, quietly releasing their first 12″ together in the late ’90s. Like Rhythm & Sound, Deepchord based their compositions around minimal arrangements: repetitive rhythms inspired by dub, faint traces of white noise, and warm synth stabs. The group retained a loyal cult following, releasing several more singles in the early 2000s as well as a limited-run CD version of their first six releases (originally pressed up in extremely limited quantities). The duo’s production went from prolific to a screeching halt around 2002, making a remarkable and rare live performance at the Detroit Electronic Music Festival and releasing singles in a scarce fashion (the group’s 2006 single was only pressed to 100 copies). A retrospective of the group’s work, Vibrasound: 1999-2004, was issued under Modell’s name and released on the Silentes label in 2005. Later that year, Modell teamed with Kevin Hanton to release Illuminati Audio Science and used a generous portion of the group’s output, looped and sliced into small segments (much like Richie Hawtin’s DE9 experiments), for a continuous 70-minute mix CD – and Steven Hitchell (Soultek), Echospace released a series of 12″ singles on England’s Modern Love label, all of which were compiled on a CD named after the series, The Coldest Season. The same year, the duo also issued a pair of singles on Lee Purkis’ Fortune8 label, as well as an additional release on echospace[detroit]. As with much of Modell’s output, Echospace’s material is deeply rooted in the Basic Channel/Chain Reaction school of dub-techno, emphasizing deep throbs and alternately soothing and unsettling ambience (manipulated field recordings, for the most part).  via podomatic
