Parsifal, “Still Alive”: Jamming with the best

Here’s a track that’s clearly flirting with the techy side of house, and a really good jam it is also. Cause that’s what it sounds like, an electronic jam session.

Repetitive, sure, but all thanks to the various filters and little details along the way, delicately sprinkled to give us an almost organic experience and because the hook itself is just so darn catchy, it doesn’t become repetitious. Just groovy. So perfect. Continue reading Parsifal, “Still Alive”: Jamming with the best

FRNTIK, “Abstraction”: A good wave to surf.

After all these years with eighties music played over and over god damn absolutely everywhere, I’ve long wondered when the hell it’s going to pass. But no. It doesn’t. Now artists have started recreating that eighties sound instead.

Problem is, there’s a lot of crap synthwave out there. And I do mean a lot. So it is then with a great deal of pleasure I do pick up those releases that are not! Continue reading FRNTIK, “Abstraction”: A good wave to surf.

Sors, “Vitality”: Intelligent dance music

One of the strengths of this track is in the production, the details. Just listen to the gorgeous sound design. The effects. The way the entire stereo field is utilised. This is simply a bloody good production, from a technical point of view.

But that alone is not enough to be selected by us, of course. The artistic qualities are just as important, and Sors fully qualify. Continue reading Sors, “Vitality”: Intelligent dance music

Eld, “Senkvärk”: Nod your head to this feelgood groove

I’ll be the first to admit that this is not a track I typically select for this blog. And I do promise, the other tracks I got in store for this week is deeper, more underground.

However, there’s something about this track that I just felt connected to! Am I getting softer with the years? Continue reading Eld, “Senkvärk”: Nod your head to this feelgood groove

Wenchi Rue, “Wear You Down”: You gotta keep going longer for that to happen, buddy!

Vaporwave: I love the production here. It was a track that I had to listen to several times. I almost declined it for the overly eager “drummer” that really was quite distracting at first because it was almost too organic, but shortly after I did find it hilarious and has ended up being the highlight of the entire track. Continue reading Wenchi Rue, “Wear You Down”: You gotta keep going longer for that to happen, buddy!

Eric Shans & Slav Ka, “Red Moon”: Sway your thang, this is groovy

This is a slow burner, hovering in the deep / minimal / progressive house landscape. And the ever important groove is prominent. Not in a “go mad on the floor” kinda way, but I dare you not to unconsciously nod your head in a rhythmic fashion during this stroll.

Or sway your butt. Thump your thumbs. Or whatever it is you do when you feel the groove. Continue reading Eric Shans & Slav Ka, “Red Moon”: Sway your thang, this is groovy
