Imagine yourself riding through the country in your brand new convertible on a summer day… Imagine drifting above the stretching fields following the sunset towards the horizon with warm wind in your hair… Imagine floating above the clouds, climbing to the heights where the air is thin, and then diving off the coast towards the salty ocean… These are the images and feelings that are evoked when listening to Dive, Scott Hansen‘s latest studio album as Tycho released on the remarkable Ann Arbor based (Michigan, USA) Ghostly International.
Just like last year, and the year before, somehow I managed to torture myself with a great restraint of releasing these “Best Of” lists at a rate of only one per day. Believe me, there’s nothing more I want, than to share all of this music with you! Especially this selection of albums that falls into one of my favorite categories! This is the music that excites every neuron, challenges the ordinary world, and triggers yet another thought. Dark, beautiful, cinematic, glitchy, quirky – these are adjectives that fail to describe the sound once again. How futile are these words, and how beautiful the music! Enjoy!!!
This is my first introduction to the Seattle-based Chris Roman, and I am immediately hooked! Dark electro beats, cosmic space synths and melodic IDM elements make up this release on Outside Recordings. Roman’s Puerto Rican heritage and Miami upbringing contribute to his Latin disco based background, “but when his vibe turns to the cold dark comfort of Detroit-esque minimal mind funk, it would seem this man forgets from whence he came.” The production on the EP reeks of numerous obsessive compulsive years behind the knobs, and is absolutely top-notch. Every little glitchy frequency spike makes my ears and neurons happy.

I somehow stumbled upon Sun Glitters in March and the album hasn’t left my player ever since. Luxembourg based Victor Ferreira (also known as sug(r)cane) is quite prolific and seems to regularly add to his oeuvre with remixes and stand alone tracks popping up on his bandcamp on a fairly regular basis… Upon initial listening I raved to those who would listen, describing Sun Glitters as “like Boards of Canada making house music” or “probably quite good with Nitrous,” but don’t take my word for it… the official bio describes the sound as such: “Sun Glitters sound is an ocean of lush melodies, pitch-shifted vocal samples, ghostly digi-diva choirs, warm bass melodies driven by alternately dense and relaxing beatwork combinations between downtempo and wonky beats.”
Baconhead make sci-fi beats to confuse your brain and their newly released 'Astro Sludge EP' perfectly describes this 12” debut by the UK based duo. Inspired heavily by psychedelia, videogames and experimental hiphop, Baconhead have crafted an EP that offers a wealth of ideas and styles, using funk, sludge-rock and dubstep as main ingredients.
Geoff White had been building a reputation for heady minimal techno until his debut full-length as Aeroc, Viscous Solid, revealed a particular genius for placing acoustic sounds in a decidedly digital context...
