Have you ever asked yourself what would come out on the other side if we threw acid house, minimal, jazz, techno and deep house in a grinder and churned it real good?
Of course you have. We all have. Well, now we know! Continue reading Alex Tomb (feat. Sēbasu), “Zulu Marimbou”: Take a dip in the trippy side of the pond
Meanwhile, back in Techyland, some shouted “it needs more cowbell!”. But Mossa looks up from his mix and replies, “No! It doesn’t. It needs more KICK!”. So he took the kick drum and moved it all the way to the front of the mix. So much so, that he scared away all the other techno tracks and became king of the Kick Hill.
Just a silly little tale? But, take a listen! Continue reading Mossa, “Schadenfreude”: There can never be enough KICK!
There’s a lot about the underground part of the electronica landscape to love. The inventive, individualistic, often uncompromising approach to music making. It’s the sound of freedom! No less.
And that brings me to this artist, Odd XX and his production “Restart”. Continue reading Odd XX, “Restart”: Celebrating the odd
A revisit to the techno grounds are never wrong. One of my absolute favourite genres has grown so large that it at times is barely recognisable. Here’s a track that I do believe most techno aficionados will agree belong to the techno bag, though one can never be too sure 🙂 Continue reading Kokoro, “Hemoglobin”: Welcome to the techno sump
It goes without saying, some submissions I receive are more special than others. And here’s one of the more special ones, or what do you say about the following pitch from the artist: “Sampled percussion includes bears chewing on bones. Yum”!

There’s one thing that I’ve always been weak for: Classical samples in club music. Yeah yeah, the music police will say it’s cheesy as fuck, but come on. There’s just nothing BIGGER than a fully fledged classical experience, being it a full orchestra or a large, full chorus. Add hard hitting electronica to that, and you got dynamite. Continue reading Vowed, “Close Your Eyes”: Close your eyes and travel in time
What made this piece catch my attention was the sound of the lead keyboard. Sounds old and worn, and with the addition of the background noise it shapes a totality, an imaginary world of dark dungeon halls and supernatural beings. Continue reading Snowsleep, “Lonesome molecules”: A spark of reflection
This is fun fodder for the floor. It has that groovy, tight, happy club vibe that many will recognise from around the turn of the century. But is it “retro”? Don’t be too sure! Because, for me it seems this sound is on the way back to the floors again, after a period dominated by a harder and more aggressive type tech house.
The bounce is back! Continue reading Christos Papadogias, “Sunday”: The bounce is back!
