Best New Music: I:Cube’s “M” Megamix

I:Cube, one half of the French house duo Chateau Flight, has just released yet another fantastic album. I’m feeling slightly lazy on writing up my own review, so here’s some great words from FACT:

“M” Megamix is 24 tracks long, and the way that these tracks interact and fall into each other, with no boring intros and clotted breakdowns, is what makes the whole experience of this record so impactful. Many of them, however, stand out as worthy of individual praise: ‘Transparent Sea Creatures’ rolls out heavily reverberated breakbeats – think Shed piloting a submarine […].

Here are some of my favorite tracks:

Bajo Bajo
Transparent Sea Creatures
Transpiration
In Alpha
Club Miniature
Le Rocher Aux Singes

RA’s Top 50 Tracks of 2011: My Favorites

RA’s yearly polls are great. First of all, they offer incredible insight on the EDM scene as a whole. Secondly, the forum comments over “why aren’t X, Y and Z up there?! They’re so much better than A, B and C!!! omg wtf RA sux!” offer infinite entertainment. It’s a poll: to record opinions or votes (i.e. a popularity contest). Anyways, I always enjoy the satisfaction of seeing some of my favorite tracks up there, but am just as happy to see many that were completely off my radar. All aboard the hype-train! Here’s my favorites of the list:

Gesloten Cirkel – Yamagic
Zomby – Natalia’s Song
Morphosis – Too Far
Cassius – The Sound of Violence (Franco Cinelli Remix)
WhoMadeWho – Every Minute Alone (Tale Of Us Remix)
Eats Everything – Entrance Song
Tiger & Woods – Gin Nation
Kassem Mosse – Untitled A1
Osunlade – Envision (Ame Remix)
Four Tet – Pyramid
Session Victim – Good Intentions
Objekt – CLK Recovery
Burial – Street Halo
Martyn – Masks
Steffi feat. Virginia – Yours
Julio Bashmore – Battle For Middle You
Omar-S – Here’s Your Trance, Now Dance!!

Old Find: The A to Z of Electronic Music

Back in the old days when I first started this blog on blogger, my first real post was “The A to Z of Electronic Music You Should Know.”  Now that I’m knowledgeable, mature and wise (and everything else that comes with a beard), I will call this “Alphabetized Songs That I Used To Like So Much, But Still Do, Mostly.” Some good gems in here. I hope you enjoy.

Justice x Adidas x Romain Gavras

I’ve been annoyed with Justice for quite some time. There’s no doubt they’re currently France’s second best musical export (behind Daft Punk), but Jesus, they could not have milked any harder. Either way, they have a lot of hype to live up to. This single off of their Sophomore album “Civilization” (due for release in April) is awesome, and is giving me really high hopes. At first I was upset to see Justice selling out before even releasing their new album. But after seeing the video, I could not be happier. Romain Gavras can visualize music like no other – this is probably the best video for audio editing I have ever seen. Hands down.
