I really dig music we can call “oddballs”. Problem is, it still has to be good. And far too many oddballs just sound like randomness at work in the hands of an inexperienced producer.
Being odd is purely good in our neck of woods. And these tracks are really not easy to pin into one particular bag, and are overflowing with creativity.
Come on guys, let’s take a walk on the wild side. Continue reading Double Oddball Special: Cinematic moments ahead!
Sunday. A day off for me, usually. But I just felt like sharing a couple of gorgeous, calm tracks that I’ve discovered lately.
And just so you are properly prepared: I’m taking you to the electronica outskirts now. Some pretty trippy sceneries are coming up. Continue reading Sunday Session: An IDM trip
It’s not many days since I last did an “double oddball feature”, but I just have to do another; this time a sci-fi special!
Here’s one rather odd instrumental consisting of essentially just sequences, while the other is nothing but a voice. Yes, that’s it.

Here’s an interesting one. A very cinematic experience from the borderlands of ambient, chill-out, folklore and movie scores.
It’s of a rather dark and quite experimental shape, but with a story to tell. That’s what makes it so seductive. There’s something going on, and we are invited to tag along and find out. Continue reading Drum & Lace, “ae”: There’s something going on
Here’s an abstract piece I found quite interesting. Hardly described as “accessible”, and not easy to tag when it comes to genre either, but with a unique flavour of… I don’t know? Techno, perhaps? Blended with ambient? Would that make you any wiser? Continue reading B.Negativ, “Alkaloids”: A strange journey ahead
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
I see a cyberpunk universe in this. An eclectic, steamy and dirty futuristic urban environment. If I were a movie director I’d ask Jonathan & co to make the soundtrack for my cyberpunk flick. Continue reading Jonathan Lim & Iterations, “Chase”: A cyberpunk love affair
