w a l l a C - s u r d o

w a l l a C is a producer from Rio de Janeiro, now resident in Melbourne, drawing from multiple influences, from funk, reggae, dub, brasilian music and from the weirdest nooks and crannies of the realm of suprachill.

On the whole he gives an interesting chilly blend that is pretty hard to define. I'll let you be the judges of that.

This album is out on Dub Temple Records, which features not only, but lots of free-priced releases you ought to check out.

See you soon.

Zebbler Encanti Experience - ReFreak

It has been a really long time since there was some Glitch music up in this... place. So I wanted to introduce a remix album of a team of artists I've discovered pretty recently on Gravitas Recordings.

The first track will keep you taped to the rest until the end. Bumpy road ahead, you will know when it begins but never when it ends. Well, some tracks even end abruptly, leaving you stranded, and some I like a bit less than others. But on the whole, in theres is a bunch of excellent tracks to add to your all-time favourites. Funky delicious grapes of groovy glitch music.

This album is made of remixes of 'Freakquency', another from ZEE that... well why not listen to the original while it's standing right over there ?

See you round.

Narcose - Panda Eyes

Taking its roots at the threshold between Swamp and Psybient and sprinkled with dubby dust, Panda Eyes is what you need to give back their psychedelic side to places wronged when called sinister. Between a marsh buzzing with fireflies and a mystical crystal fountain.

I am currently reading the classic Lord of the Rings and played this music while the book describes the climbing of a high, dark and never-ending stair, flanked by chasms at the bottom of which you can see a corrupted and dead city, encircled by weird flowers and prickly mountain bushes.

I hope nobody is going to mistake the fact that I deemed it very à-propos for such a scene...

And I say this to you: whenever you get the chance to find a free(-priced) album at Mystic Sound Records, you can buy with your eyes closed, there's a 99.99% chance it's going to be excellent.

Also, you'll appreciate the music better with your eyes closed, of course.

Well, see you next time !

VA - Chiptunes From Russia

Come in, come in ! You can trust the cover, this collection of 8-bit tracks is every bit as good as the cover puts across: jumpy, tournifly, rhythmed, electrifying.

Another good find at our good russo-norwegian friends at Forest which get together newcomers and old buccanneers of the (almost) pure soundwave to take us far into unknown territories, full of pixels, of colours.

Only good stuff here (so far, I'm listening to it right now, same as you). It makes me want to go and play Gameboy in front of the Saint-Basil Cathedral...

Lexi & the Cheap Disaster

I don't even know where this music comes from, but I was enthralled from the beginning by the cover and its very videogamey feeling. It feels like following the epic adventures of a young hero, orphaned as a kid and raised by rams in mysterious moutain.

The talent of Alex Mauer, Cheap Dinosaurs and Disasterpeace fuse into one collection of very short tracks following each other like small electronic gnomes heading for the memory mine to dig up some diamonds.

If this comes from a video game at all, I must get it as soon as possible.

Romo - Meow

Raw emotion and sentimentality, childlike joy and heavy bass. I guess you do not need much more to define this release by Romo, who had previously ravished our ears with 'Chase The Universe' in collaboration with Sincjack, another talented beatmaker and producer.

Samples taken from video games of which I am still quite fond, sweet and bumpy melodies, but also a surprising guitar interlude, Meow is a short but welcomed dose of good sound I'm having trouble categorising.

See you next time.
