Concerning Belize Cult hits the shores of Europe.

The following is a concerning announcement on a growing problem that has now reached the shores of Europe:


"CVLT CLASSICS began in 1981 in an island off the shore of Belize as a cult. The cult has been living there isolated. The only contact with the outside world were the drug boats that used the camp to refuel on their way to Miami. We traded tapes for gas and we grew on 80s and early 90s, cocaine-fueled, cheap music. We have left the island, settled in Madrid and Brighton and now present you our newest track, TROPICO.


A humid and paranoid track with sloppy guitars we bought from a group of German missionaries living with the indigenous people of the Upper Amazon, and we decided to make a cover of it and offer it up for free"

Tropico (Instrumental Mix) by CVLT CLASSICS

This is all very worrying.

Zombi - Escape Velocity.

I forgot Zombi had an album out! 
These synth prog trance wonders released Escape Velocity in May and its brilliant! As always their artwork is amazing too. Listen to this and fly.

Bruxa - an abstracted visualised review..

As music genres increasingly become more abstracted and visually based criticism becomes complicated and obtuse. Needless to say Bruxa is amazing and next level and all so 2012. Go download from Soundcloud what you can, squelching chopped and screwed, drag and witch house, witchstep, fuckstep, fuck dance lets art fuck. Lets abstract, cut and paste.. Screwed&Chopped☽☼, dirty south, indust, oceans, the cosmos, night terrors, dreams made true, life†death, living beyond 2012, ▲▲▼▲▄█▀ █▬█ █ ▀█▀▲ ▼ ▲↨↑↓→←∟→ ←∟▼▲▼▄█▀ █▬█ █ ▀█▀▼▲▼↨↑→←∟→←∟₪₪₪☻╗ ╝

Nero - Crush On You!



Absolutely love this track, released 16th November, the video is great too, all of a Hammer witch craft feel. 

Cosmotropia de Xam's best video so far!

Artist: Mater Suspiria Vision feat. How I Quit Crack 
Track: Opera Infernale 
Release: Inverted Triangle II CD/LP  
Starring: Carmen Incarnadine

Heavy Strife - Synthétiseur - one awesome free album!!

Oh wow, this is an amazing album! This is like.. well so much stuff at the moment but better, I cant believe its being given away free! Heavy Strife is the artist and Synthétiseur is the album. 


On first listen this is like better than the new M83 album and I love that album -though it takes a listen to get into it! Synthétiseur hits you straight away all catchy, epic and synthy. It's a blissed out showgaze feeling, 80s inspired dance, made with towering synths and gigantic warm melodies all tinged with a post punk sadness. It makes me feel like listeing to an album for the first time as a kid at Xmas, opening up the wrapping reading all the inner sleeve blurb and playing it to death up in your bedroom while eating chocolate all snug and warm with snow outside! Album of 2011? Close!


This is better than the new M83 album for sure its better than a lot of things actually, it's probably better than the new Justice prog Pheonix style album from what I've heard of that. Oh and Synthétiseur is really short too, no long sprawling Prog here! But it is progy though, along the lines of Zombi, MGMT or that kind of thing.


"Heavy Strife is the latest project by the artist B.A. Blaufarb. Years ago he emerged from the dense green foliage of Maryland to spend his young adult life on the move around the country. In the summer of 2011 he sat down in a New York apartment to begin work on what would become Synthétiseur."

New Blissed Out EP!

Here's a new mixtape/free digital EP released by Blissed Out! Entitled "Blissed Out - I" its got a collaboration with Ritualz on it and some super sweet tracks all tinged with Euro trance feelings and low dirty hip hop stylings. The question we have to ask ourselves is"will it blend?" ..and yeah its awesome! "I" features eight new, original songs all written, produced and recorded by Alex Winter in New York, with the exception of "Midnight," which he co-wrote with Ritualz. 


The EP is streaming on Soundloud but can be downloaded from mediafire here. My favourite songs off this EP are definitely BANG BANG and Outro, the first for its great off kilter beat and the second for its spaced out old skool rave feel. Brillliant

Slava

Riding a beautiful wave somewhere between the shores of that 80s synth House, Chillwave, sound and the open water of ambient house beats and ethnic inspired cosmic dance Slava is pretty awesome sounding. 


Hailing from Brooklyn his sound is eclectic and spiralling but equally defined, each track lifting you off to a different sandy isle to sit and await whatever whimsy takes you. 
There are a bunch of free downloads on his Soundcloud page so go get.

Orobonic Plague - GAAP album.

"(33.) GAAP. - The Thirty-third Spirit is Gaap. He is a Great President and a Mighty Prince. He appeareth when the Sun is in some of the Southern Signs, in a Human Shape, going before Four Great and Mighty Kings, as if lie were a Guide to conduct them along on their way. His Office is to make men Insensible or Ignorant; as also in Philosophy to make them Knowing, and in all the Liberal Sciences. He can cause Love or Hatred, also he can teach thee to consecrate those things that belong to the Dominion of AMAYMON his King. He can deliver Familiars out of the Custody of other Magicians, and answereth truly and perfectly of things Past, Present, and to Come. He can carry and re-carry men very speedily from one Kingdom to another, at the Will and Pleasure of the Exorcist. He ruleth over 66 Legions of Spirits, and he was of the Order of Potentates."


GAAP is the latest release from Ourobonic plague and wow its immense, much more upbeat and potentially dancy than the last Spirits///Gremlins EP. This is ambient doom bass drone attack 'copters circling their prey on alien ice worlds for eternity. Go download it from Bandcamp now and give what you can!

Teams/Def Jam news!!

Since the release of the Dxys Xff album Teams has probably had a pretty great summer, if the two most recent tracks created since then are anything to go on. Embracing the Seapunk vibe as much as the 80s bass and glam, the funk and smooth woosh of LA.  Throbbing heat and no sleep, sunlight through blinds, endless R&B speedboat chases echoing through street soundsystems, roller skates and a forever summertime vibe. 


With releases via Amdiscs Mexican Summer and Coral Records Internazionale He is soon releasing the 'Boyhood' LP as physical and digital release on DEF JAM Records!!




Also heres the new and official video for Teams "Based Love" from "Dxys Xff" LP which was released on AMDISCS

TranceGender

..just drift along in this spaced out trance tweaking Adeptus remix of Pictureplane's - TranceGender. 


Listen to the soft pillow mountains of neurons gently fizzing in the outer layers of the Ort Cloud slipping slowly through the night sky, trailing a magical dusting of tongue numbing gloss over the night world cityscape of 2downtown anywhere" feel it in your pants. Listen and reach.

The Fantasiarexia EP by Jacob 2-2


The Fantasiarexia EP by Jacob 2-2 feels like a sonic version of sliding down the tongue of  the Goblin King Jareth while dressed as the disco diva version of Sarah from Labyrinth. 


Deep and 80s twisting but totes now and even 2012 its a glistening electronic diamond of slow synth sex and shimmering 8bit funk. Late night, high neon, plastic emeralds and lazer eylashes under crystal glitter balls. There's one track to download for free go seek it out on his Soundcloud.

Ourobonic Plague - Spirits /// Gremlins

Giant droning cathedrals in ancient skies howling out a slow dub call to the faithful, skies turning orange in a haze of heady fuzz and doom, bass and slow low beats. 

Ourobonic Plague are heavy headphone club death music for Cthulhu ravers awaiting 2012, the end times, the great release; the great outer planets align spreading rays of unknown magnitude and ethereal power across the solar system bathing all beings in its path. 


Spirits /// Gremlins was released in preparation for this great day on May 4th 2011, its two track formula pays homage to that great unknown film Spirits of the Air, Gremlins of the Clouds - by Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City.) Available for free from Bandcamp this EP's bass filled wall of sound never lets your eardrums bounce back.

80s Stallone

The jet ski jumps in slow motion over the camera as you fire off a champaign cork into the heavens, cigar in one hand, mirrored aviators stuck tight to your face, you leap into the swimming pool of life lined with red bathing suit wearing super models, your speado wearing chums stand nearby firing machine guns off across the bay, the yacht is signalling that it's time for the party to begin, your muscles almost hurt from looking so good, the sun beats a tan down onto everyone in sight and when night finally comes you will drive your red Lamborghini through the streets of Naples listening on cassette to the hottest synth beats. You are a winner.

This is 80s Stallone! Total neon muscle Italiano upbeat synth electro magic, dance on steroids till dawn, live the Miami dream. Beautiful "label under 80s" sounds created this year!
