Track of the Week: Kettenkarussell – New York Blues

Soothing melodies from the Giegling crew.

Track of the Week: Aoud – I (One) [The Revera Corporation]


Even though I’ve become less involved with the blog over the years, I still get a good amount of promos (disclaimer: most are quite boring). Recently received this one from a label in Miami: dark & moody atmospheric techno that’s got me dying to play it out on the dance floor at 3am.

Really excited to see what these guys are up to next.

New Release: DJ Metatron – U’ll Be the King of the Stars [Traumprinz]

In yet another testament to his musical genius, Traumprinz has just released a new EP under a brand new moniker: DJ Metatron. As expected, it’s fantastic, and slightly more trancy than his previous releases. Sounds straight from heaven.

A1 U’ll Be The King Of The Stars
A2 Rave Child
A3 Spiral Worlds
B1 The Colour (Sad Sad Euphoria Breakbeat Mix)
B2 Oh Ah

Track of the Week: Efdemin – Parallaxis (Traumprinz’s Over 2 The End Version)

Traumprinz: master of melody. This guy is unstoppable.

Mix of the Week: The Bunker New York by Bryan Kasenic

A mix to make New York proud! The Bunker’s Bryan Kasenic has put together a beautiful selection of tracks, including many forthcoming Bunker releases. Can’t wait!

Best New Album: SHXCXCHCXSH – Linear S Decoded

It’s been way too long since I properly reviewed an entire album. That’s not to say I haven’t been listening to any albums worth posting, just that it’s becoming harder and harder to find the actual time to write. Well, here’s an album worth breaking my silence for.

SHXCXCHCXSH (an unpronounceable name that sounds like noise or a drum pattern when sounded out) are an anonymous duo hailing from Sweden. Known for blurring the lines between techno, experimental, and industrial, SHXCXCHCXSH have released their finest work yet. As RA mentions:

The LP jumps from noisy abrasion to melodic sweetness and back again, all with a determinedly off-kilter slant. The tracks even have intelligible names this time (though we’re still not sure what they’re supposed to mean).

Linear S Decoded is a warm yet abstract journey, finding harmony in blending just the right amount of noise, distortion, 4/4 kicks, ambiance and melody. It’s much softer than previous releases, though far more impactful.

Tracklist:
1. Entering the S-Cloud
2. Drain This Lord
3. Wadin Guise
4. The Roots
5. Elocution
6. Helical Dialog
7. The Under Shore
8. The Repelling of the Quantitive Invasion
9. A Sunny Day in Ostrogothia
10. Rudimental Retreat
11. This Hmming Raverie
12. Sub Mission – The Atlantic Vision
13. Monolithic Conclusion
