Mysterious of a Blunt – TnJ Loop

With jungle nods to LTJ Bukem comes Mysterious of a Blunt, presumably an alias of Berlin-based techno producer Orson Wells. Here’s how he describes his music making process in an interview with EdHid: “It’s somehow a meditative process immersing yourself in a basic loop and trying to add selectively more elements based on your experiences you have […]

Actress – Dancing In The Smoke

After teasing his new track ‘X22RME‘ two weeks ago, Actress is back with another dark, grinder of a single. ‘Dancing in the Smoke’ sounds as Actress sees music, as bits of data, and the hypnotic loop and accelerating orchestral keys allude to our electronic ‘future,’ a vocal that punctuates throughout the track. Actress’s album seems to […]

Actress – X22RME

These laws constantly sculpt and shape our surroundings through repeating cycles, forever moving […]

Andy Stott – Selfish

Always pushing forward. That’s how you could describe Manchester electronic producer Andy Stott‘s music. He gave up making formulaic club tracks to focus on pionneering weirder “knackered house,” combining “sludgy tempos, grainy sounds, dense atmospheres.” He continues exploring new sounds on his latest album Too Many Voices. Perhaps the most interesting track is ‘Selfish,’ where […]

Citizen Boy – Indaba Ka Bani Besibenuza

Citizen Boy is a Durban electronic producer pioneering the Gqom sound emerging out of Durban, South Africa. His fellow Gqom Oh! label-mate DJ Lag called the localized genre, “a mix of elements of hip-hop and house.” Citizen Boy’s track ‘Indaba Ka Bani Besibenuza’ is a tribal dance beat that tries to encapsulate the resourceful experiences of “Zulu […]
