Another day another mixtape, this one's a blissed out house thing from Shisa, all ocean vibes and indoor sun. Remember its always summer, its always midday, somewhere on the planet. Download from Soundcloud now.
Teej hails from the good city of Brighton and creates some really varied Chillwave inspired music, in the vein of Black Moth Super Rainbow. Sparkly wondrous sounds full of digital magic and shine. Laptop prog soundtracks for paragliding over Tokyo while uploading your mind to the hive conciousness. Fidgety finger gliding synth melodies buzzing through Pheonix style drums and She style 8-bit gloss and buff. Awesome.
Welcome to Myrrh Ka Ba's Tundra Dubs release début; There's Only One Of Us Here. Available for $1.99 from Bandcamp.
It's all massive slow bass and drum beats rumbling sow and low, growling dynamic and beautiful as if Tom Waits and been born a lot more recently and had only wanted to make dub inspired electronica.
This is a great one for listening in the headphones to, the bass really rumble rips the back of your ear canal with waves of constant awesomeness. This is heavy, purple drank, next level 2012, shit. Blast it! 9 out of ten!
PrismViews is an artist from Detroit creating both sound and visuals in a really awesome way, "new genre art" partly Witch House/internet art inspired but with a very definite unique and individual style. I really like this artist, the whole experience is rich and expressive, glamorously immersive and wonderfully esoteric. There's music, videos, artwork and photography. Its all awesome.
Want some slow melodic quiet post punk echo and beauty with tinges of The XX? Then here is Over The Moon. Hailing from High Wycombe this duo create some really British really hauntingly beautiful music for wondering with the headphones through misty autumn mornings lost deep in numb melancholia. Blam awesome in your face!
People are drawing comparisons to The XX, These New Puritans - all that kind of sound. But they most remind me of a quite different band called Atlantacists who were doing stuff more guitar, bass and drum machine led in 2008 who never got off the ground but were awesome too. Go to Over The Moon's Soundcloud to download the track Natural Death.
Crystals shining rainbows inside the car. Painting on flowers with oil paints and ketchup.Play fighting atop giant green hills wearing brightly coloured furry jumpers in opposing hues. Spray painted ipads piled together in great heaps. Painting the sky blue with light at night. The endless landscape and infinite interiors changing into unnatural hues, the sky flashing purple, trees turn red. Painted faces in dripping hues pressed close together. Spaces illuminated by single coloured light bulbs. Detuned TV screens with the saturation turned up. Drinks resting un-drunk on kitchen surfaces in a multitude of spectra. Pointing at cars from motorway bridges and turning them a different colour. Regal Safari's EP RGLSFR on loud. Free and untainted on Bandcamp.
"When art, become independent, depicts its world in dazzling colours, a moment of life has grown old and it cannot be rejuvenated with dazzling colours. It can only be evoked as a memory. The greatness of art begins to appear only at the dusk of life."
Deep black dark and deeper, noise beaten hyper bass screeching dubstep Witch House from Puerto Rico Deadradio Sound System blasts away with both barrels.
"For their 100th release, Mexican Summer proudly presents an extremely special one-off: duel productions from Ford&Lopatin quite unlike anything heard from them to date, featuring guest appearances from label mate Shannon Funchess. ‘Snakes’ beats its way out of the speakers as an erratic EBM sweat storm, rave riffs flashing in cycles over stripped down drum machines. Light Asylum’s Shannon Funchess contributes her incredible voice to the fray, grimly intoning and passionately decrying doom-laden promises before a melancholy finale." Well worded Mexican Summer this track is the most epic killer of all time! Blam! DJ it tonight!
"The images detached from every aspect of life fuse in a common stream in which the unity of this life can no longer be reestablished. Reality considered partially unfolds, in its own general unity, as a pseudo-world apart, an object of mere contemplation. The specialization of images of the world is completed in the world of the autonomous image, where the liar has lied to himself. The spectacle in general, as the concrete inversion of life, is the autonomous movement of the non-living.
The spectacle presents itself simultaneously as all of society, as part of society, and as instrument of unification. As a part of society it is specifically the sector which concentrates all gazing and all consciousness. Due to the very fact that this sector is separate, it is the common ground of the deceived gaze and of false consciousness, and the unification it achieves is nothing but an official language of generalized separation.
The spectacle is not a collection of images, but a social relation among people, mediated by images." *Guy Debord 1967 ʄ≜uxmuℭica has a new covers album out, plus a video for The Model featuring c♦o♦c♦o ᴐaᴚᴃ☉ᵯᴃ, the album is called My New $ecrets and is now available for free download here.
"I think of the days we were gods and goddesses, playing ball with planets. We were larger than dinosaurs. But now we sit like good girls and boys and watch the small tennis ball going left and right, forgetting the days when we use to play with bigger balls. What happens when we shrink even further, and become the size of cockroaches? Will we be still playing with something that echoes the time when we were larger?" *Yoko Ono Lazerhawk produces the kind of synth pounding 80s tinged electro stompers popularized by bands such as the immortal Gatekeeper. Power keys and Italio influence at the ready Lazerhawk creates the kind of manic menace John Carpenter would have created if he'd had to direct the new Tron film but like back in 1983. An album is coming soon so keep a twitching replicant eye open for it! For similar sonic affiliates see 80s Stallone, Power Glove and White Car.
"Wow that Unicorn Kid he's hot right now!" Said in a Zoolander style! Here he's remixed Pictureplanes - Real Is A Feeling. It's not free to download but you can stream it from Soundcloud I guess if you just have to DJ it tonight..
Fan video for the band Welcome Back Sailorsusing footage from the 1968French movie by Frédéric Pardo "Home Movie: On the Set of Philippe Garrel's 'Le lit de la vierge'" Below is a scene from the film Le Lit de la Vierge. Its a pretty awesome edgy one-shot with some great jamming psychedelia over the top! Music video right there!
"Hey relax, just chill guy, cool?" In the immortal word of Sadham Hussain I introduce you to Yellow Pipes Of Eternity a five track EP by Wooden a Holy Page Records signing. Wooden creates a brilliant ambient noise drone thing that all cave dwelling music observours should want to download.
Holy Page have a brilliant line in album covers with every artists release getting a similar treatment. Just look at this it just makes me want to eat it its so good! Yellow Pipes Of Eternity is full of awe inspiring organ and noise, creaking wonder and emerging shards of waves lapping at your ears slowly over the course of the five tracks, lulling you into the sort of warm happy feeling you only get when hyperthermia properly sets in. Go download this EP for free now!
Darkly gothic Neo-Folk from LA, The Long Wives are one Brandy St. John (vocals, guitar, piano, songwriting and recording.) This one woman purveyor of quietly echoing melancholia, dark and brooding, paganistic feeling black folk creates songs about death and love, and the death of love. Look out King Dude! Check out her Facebook to download a huge bunch of songs.
I read someone say recently that o F F is like somewhere between The Weeknd and James Blake and its a pretty good description, starting off tagged as Witch House this dude is way more ambient R&B and soft core autotune dream hop. Love it! His album Probably Love is set to released soon next year!
The collective minds of three of Berlins' finest join forces for a new
night of power and bass, heat and audio rage. PURGE was conceived when Daniel Dodecahedron (GucciGoth), xorzyzt (BL4CK M4G1CK) and Tom Ass (The Darkness) worked together during the Drop Dead Festival in September of 2011.
Combining the best of early industrial dance, post-hardcore influenced dubstep, black metal rave, and witched-out hip-hop, PURGE seeks to encourage spasms, violent dancing and the end of party apathy; when you enter our space, you are part of the cabal. Existence is Void: there is only the gift of fury.
PURGE drops down on Thursday November 10th at Chez Jacki with two singular prophets of doom: HTRK and BRUISES.
With an opening statement that positions this band as "Armed with only two POWERGLOVES, we are two lawyers sent back from the streets of future, post apocalyptic Los Angeles 2043" You know this going to be AWESOME!
So like you know this is going to sound exactly like what that statement implies. This is 80s style synth future madness akin to bands like 80s Stallone or Gatekeeper. It's pounding, muscle flexing synth riffs bounce you along like Night Rider on bubble, faster faster, more posing, quick lets take off our linen suit jackets and dive in the pool, I love your hair gel quick lets release a motivational dance aerobics video.
Skinemax is Koyaanisqatsi for a generation raised on late night television and B-movie VHS tapes. It's long form entertainment for short attention spans. An hour long VJ odyssey, it will move your body and warp your mind. A nostalgic look back at a half remembered childhood growing up in the 80s and early 90s, Skinemax takes a close look at the culture of that era. The images that motivated, delighted, and terrified us on the silver screen, set to propulsive modern music that pines for a simpler time.

spf50 makes the kind of music last year would have been branded Witch House and this year feels a lot more ambitious, there's still a lot of slowed down drag remixes and re-edits but as a body of work it's really good.
Check out the two Soundcloud profiles here and here and download as much as you want!
Here's some next level slow an low post trance/post witch house what ever, this is really good, really really good. ANDRɅS is at least partly signed to Mater Suspiria Visions label Phantasma and to Pale Noir Records, hailing from L.A this purveyor of amazing dark and heavy Witchian rave creates epic dancefloor fogs of sound and noize good enough to get lost in for days. He's just released a single called Ten Of Swords which has accompanying remixes by Tash Willmore, spf50, Fl▲sh$i†, Nattymari and ∆AIMON amongst others.
This ten track free download is like a cathedral of sound and darkness to a dark and ever present rave somewhere out in the foothills of a phantom planet. Go download it from Bandcamp now!
A brilliantly intimate "band made" video featuring Sadie from Crim3s and towards the end of the video a totally tagged to pieces squat arty somewhere. This is a really awesome really subtle fashion film of a video and it totally compliments this Crim3s rework of the Clams Casino track.
Self labelled as ElectroKvlt Denver based Strange Powers creates heavy deep post trance sounds, grinding drone electro and slow low epic dancefloor soundscapes that thump through to the basement below. There is a track for free download on his Soundcloud and an LP on AMDISCS too. With a really nice production gloss and almost pop sensibility to tracks Strange Powers is 2012 next level for me. Future ho...!

*thanks to Gucci Goth for linking my brain up to this mixtape!
Schonwald is the band and Mercurial is the song, great song title by the way. This band are all about texture and rock'n roll atmospherics, Jesus and Mary Chain style if you must but also exploring the further reaches of 80s post punk fuzzed out synth meloncholia. Its nice.
