Think about a car full of your “post hardcore death sludge metal” heroes ( They do love stuff like Meshuggah, Cryptopsy, Napalm Death, Mike Patton’s projects, etc) crashing on a Bus full of electronic gear stolen from Noisia, Venetian Snares and Igorrr’s studio.
It slaps, rattles, scrapes, breaks just how you’ll like it if ever you have some love for the aforementioned peeps…
SOMEONE HAS BEEN READING MY SECRET MUSIC DIARY. SOMEONES.
More filthy music from the BedroomResearch label. BedroomResearch: they’ll sleep on it.
If you’ve ever encountered the amazing rawness of Eat Rabbit, you mostly know what to expect. If this is your first time, hold on to your butt, cause it’s gonna be shakin’. I’m just glad he posted this somewhat old mix for us to enjoy.
I quite like posting mixes on Friday afternoons, is anyone opposed? Something about hammering out those last minutes/hours before heading home for the weekend.
More listening: Eat Rabbit’s “Kiss the Dolphin” if you want to get confused and loud, it’s a free download, or you could give him €5 and be real cool.
It’s hard for me to describe dendy crew’s tracks? I can say the the following 2 things for certain:
How did I get here? What is this wonderful music? Tech…no….as the citizens call it.
Today I actually learned the term “Braindance” that also describes what a lot of people more typically call “IDM”. I’ve been listening to a lot more IDM things recently, and I wanted to share what I consider to be a fine cross-section of Yoshiteru’s work. Particularly earwormy to me are the ragga-style vocals over heavy breaks in “start it”.
In fact, if you hear anything with cool ragga vocals, you should probably tell me about it.

New single from friend and frequent contributor Chromacle (epilepsy warning). It would be equally at home in that dark and gritty Eastern European club scene that probably exists only in my head as it would be at a loud and bassy goth night in Lower Manhattan. Beast it Cometh is a pounding techno-prisoners track while Bodied is a high-BPM, high-energy gabber track. Both tracks were made on Nanoloop, believe it or not.
bonus: if you’ve ever wondered what a live set of something like this might sound like, check out Next of Kin and TURN THE SPEAKERS UP (disclaimer: this blog’s administration is not responsible for any damage that may happen to a listener’s speakers)
p.s. don’t follow him on Twitter, not worth it.
Best listened as a unit (it’s only 32 minutes long), ovenrake’s CattButt is, to me, one of the most entertaining examples of music made in Piggy Tracker (aka LGPT) that I’ve heard to date. Apologetically mashing up J. Lo, Tears For Fears and Montel Jordan (among many, MANY others), the EP/mix is sure to keep you dancing for at least those 32 minutes.
Happy Friday! I’ll be on a bus to a party when this posts!
You may know them for taking one of the best band photos of this year, or maybe because I’ve mentioned them before, the fellas of Burnkit2600 are a mainstay of the New York area chipmusic scene. With performances as diverse as the dub reggae stylings of the alien known only as Duke Dubious, that strange-but-catchy IDM album I keep on my iPod (I dare you to not move your body to “When Demons Attack”), and the one-man-down-but-never-defeated house-shaking dance party extraordinaire; Burnkit is bound to be bring so much energy to start Sunday night, you better not miss it.
Sonic Sanctuary is an extension of their already incredibly diverse electronic music sonic palette. It’s hard really to nail one genre down for the album: “Last Stand” launches into sections that remind me of garage band practices gone crazy, “Inner Space Battle Hymn” is ripped straight out of an 80s anime with giant robots and closing it off with the title track, “Sonic Sanctuary” evokes island breezes, calypso drums and synthesizers while feeling the sand through your toes.
You come across a pile of tapes on a table in the back of a mill. There is a tape deck on the floor and a faint industrial pounding.
> examine tapes
They are regular cassette tapes, some dust accumulated on the casings, but otherwise intact.
> put tapes in tapedeck
You pick up a random assortment of tapes, blow the dust off of them and sit cross-legged on the floor next to the tape deck.
> use tape deck
One of the tapes feels right, so you put it in the tape deck and hit play. A haunting electronic melody rises from the small speakers in sync with the industrial pounding noise you heard before. For a moment you forget you’re in a mill at all and you wonder whether you’ve dreamt of sheep, electric or otherwise.
