A defining moment for electronic music across the board, Burial's sophomore album evokes a state of continuous bliss under grey skies.
Massive Attack returns with a promising EP featuring vocal appearances from Tricky and Young Fathers.
North Carolina electronic music producer Machinedrum readies a b-sides album that's going to be released via Ninja Tune this week. It's a series of cuts that didn't make it onto his last record: Vapor City. Some of these tracks make for a pretty gorgeous experience--especially "Endless Love" here. This song features some sparkling acoustic guitar arpeggios, serene guest vocals, and a peppy set of kick drums. Enjoy!
For his sophomore album, electronic music producer SBTRKT brings on more guests, more experiments, but somehow ends up with a less enjoyable album.
Out now as a free digital download from Astro Nautico, here's a new EP from Time Wharp, BLK EP. It's a set of new tracks and remixes combines, well, what genres you're hearing depends on what track you're listening to.
"BLK" puts a dark atmosphere and some auto-tuned vocal samples in front of a straight house beat; "Basic Step" takes the frantic rhythms and vocal samples of Juke and Footwork, and ices them with some glossy synth phrases; and the opener, "yrLyf," slowly paces itself like a James Blake tune, and features some soothing background vocals that wash over the beat in hypnotic swells--there's even a bouncy sitar-like solo that pops in toward the end.
A nice addition to the growing Astro Nautico discography.
