Gudjohr: Looks Kinda Lunar


Very relaxing, ambient and peaceful, the new album ‘Looks Kinda Lunar’ by Gudjohr is excellent. Each track has been carefully crafted with great focus on detail and the album together is wonderfully layered. The electronic and post/ambient rock combination creates great vibes and wonderfuly mellow tones which wonderfully complement the soothing vocals. Gudjohr was formed as a solo roject by Kips Golden (Guitarist in Saint Elmo and Bassist in The Best of British Suicide) in 2012. Lets hope Kips continues to Keep it golden ūüėČ :

kor

UK based Korbian, whom we introduced a few weeks ago has been pretty busy in the last few weeks releasing one variant of funk laced laid back awesomeness after another. He seems to be in a great mood too and is giving away a couple of tracks for free, only to spread the joy. Additionally his latest release with VSR records is due on the the 6th of May and here is a partial sample track from that release :

All the very best with this to Korbain!
After that bit of loungey tech house, here is my favourite piece of work by him in the last couple of weeks. Moved every time, has a lot going for it. Deep deep house, great synths and super work on the percussion. You can meditate to it or dance to it or let it play in the background while you do something Mondayne on a Tuesday. Yippey yah yei, Schweinebacke (i know the original, the german one is somehow cuter), this will uplift you! Not quite in ways that Bruce Willis intended, but mostly that’s a good thing:

And now to add a bit of sauciness to the proceedings, the next one is called desire. Some might call it the root cause of sorrow, but then they wouldn’t know what to do tommorrow! This is more garagey and makes you move instantly and can be downloaded for free like the previous one. Lust it out and lap it up:

SPC ECO : Push (EP)


UK based father daughter duo ‘SPC ECO’ (pronounced Space Echo) comprising Dean Garcia (formerly Curve, Eurythmics) and Rose Berlin have released their latest EP titled Push. This is a funky, noir, dimension altering, space skewing piece of work which is in one word best described as layered. Like a trifle pudding or a shepherd’s pie, based on your preferences for the sweet or salty, there is much to cherish and bite into. The base lines are solid, rhythms catchy, the programming and percussions are top notch and Rose has such a damningly evocative/seductive voice, that these songs are orgasmic in themselves or alternatively offer perfect background music for such dopamine releases! Go afro in the sac with this aphrodisiac or in one word ‘Push’ ;):


Space Echo usually collaborate with many artistes for their EPs and on this particular one they feature and thank:
Jarek Leskiewicz for his shimmering guitars and Slade Templeton Electronica on Push (Lady Barcelona) Remix. If you like what you hear, purchase this EP for a very attractive price on bandcamp: http://spceco.bandcamp.com/album/push-ep

Casual Lab – Luigi Gori


what color

Berlin based independent digital music record label have come up with their opening EP for the year. It is titled ‘Closer’ and is a solo release for the artiste Luigi Gori. It features 3 tracks which blend well with each other but also stand out as polished individual works. While the title track ‘Closer’ is a peppy dance number, the refreshing nonchalance and moodiness of ‘My Doubt’ and ‘Cut Cat’, showcase the wide range of sounds, creativity and imagination that this artiste possesses. Here are the three gems:



We are excited about the potential creations by this artiste in the not too distant future and are really looking forward to more! Happy Listening!

Beach Weather

What would I give for conditions resembling the above? With sub-zero temperatures being the regular order of the day, ideas such as parallel universes, time travel, alternate realities and the like seem all the more enchanting. We cannot change the hand that we are dealt, but we sure can bluff ourselves to a false sense happiness. So with the heaters on at full blast and with a cup of hot cocoa in my hands, I choose to numb my mind and drift into dreamt up sunscapes by listening to:

Dancing Clocks with Synchromatic Perception


Kaleidoscope Eyes

If you enjoyed the strictly Al’Bum’ Art displayed above, you would understand that¬†sometimes that is what life hands you. Packaged beautifully but you gotta keep an eye out for the shit storm that might come your way sooner than you’d be prepared for. Time ticks, perceptions skew, some voices remain mesmerising, trippy and haunting like you imagined them too. Enjoy one such melody¬†to tide over such times like a good single malt with coupla cubes of ice:

And if that doesn’t help, dance your way out of your blues:

Slow Hands – Cameo Culture (Parts of you and I)


Slow Hands is back with as many as 7 new tracks today! Feel like I’ve won the superlotto! I like a lot of music but amongst the digital slo-mo¬†genre I rate Slow Hands as a cut above the rest, like I rate Pink Floyd¬†compared to music as a whole. This time the track that has caught my attention the most or almost is the remix of Parts of You and I by Cameo Culture. Cameo Culture is an accomplished musician¬†in his own right, an Australian Native who now lives in Brooklyn and creates electronic sexiness from time to time. So here it is:

And that’s¬†not all that rocks about the 7 tracks posted today, visit¬†the soundcloud page for many more gems like :

PS: Best enjoyed on stuff that delivers high quality audio like the earphones featured above. Yeah, Dr Dre is paying me too ;).

Paul kalkbrenner – Das Gezabel


The preview track from Paul Kalkbrenner’s soon to be released album ‘Das Gezabel’ (scheduled for an October release, I guess), came into my mailbox courtesy a digital bundle pre-order on August 3rd. Love the sound and as usual Kalkbrenner delivers with the style, intensity and the Berlinnny/Leipziggy vibe that he seems to master so well. I recommend buying your own digital bundle from http://paulkalkbrenner.net/¬†to have download access to the track posted below, an album mix and a video of the track. It costs only a euro and 99 cents, so let go of that extra Bratwurst and listen to this:

Lilu’s Song


Perfect End to an imperfect day! Well not so much imperfect, but lets say ‘less than ideal’! I woke up mildly hungover and realised that my house looks like a wreck,second only to countries destroyed by superpowers looking for WMDs. So as a good citizen I got down to action and after 7 hours of ordeal, I can finally sit back and relax. But then,¬†when you discover such gems like Lilu’s Song by Zefora, you know it has been a good day. All is well that ends well! But when the beginning, intermediate and final sections of an Odyssey make every pore on your skin relax and induce a happy dreamy state without any Mary Jane on offer, you know you have¬†uncovered Stupendosity. Spas might be out of business and the world might be a peaceful place, courtesy:
