So I Was Standing In Some Elevator....

...Where the walls were made of Fabric, and said fabric was emmiting a soothing bass the likes of which had never been seen.

While a nice metaphore, it wasn't really needed and was just something i felt i should say through a thought i had while working.
Now. Let us talk "propper"...

Fabric has recently released a nice compilation that goes by the name of Elevator Music Vol.1. It is dubstep, but its the way forward for the old, tried and tested headache that we are used to. Its slow, its deep, and covoured in a 2-steppy, almost garage glaze at times. I think i might call it tech-dub. Or maybe dubtech. yeeeeah

Anyway i thought id put a few of the songs from said album on here. Not all of them you greedy sods, just a few.
You should buy this.

Starting with those classic congo drums, with an earie whine hovering about the place. which gently drops into some beutiful bass.

Julio Bashmore - The Moth

Blessed with a garage tone, a jittery bass above some subtle snaps of a drum. You get the classic indistinguishable singing found in old garage beats.

This song just builds and builds and builds. The bass is deep, the drums basic. So nice to walk somewhere in a cinematic fashion.

So there you have it, 3 lovely songs that you may be able to find in that elevator i once stood inside. I dare not leave. The bass holds me against the walls.

And now we have finally left that mataphore behind us. While we are on the subject of this new breed of bass, i have a nice song from Burial. as a cheeky bonus track for y'all. Classic burial going on here, blissful. The piano in this is gorgeous, another song worth walking to. But this time at night.

Hunting Pie

Should be doing some wonderful college work but thats no fun...
This song by Olivier Giacamotto & John Acquaviva has made my day.
The "Gone Hunting" Ep is well worth a purchase.

Some fine tech.

A while ago, a man that goes by the name of Piemont made a song called Caronat.
It's pretty good.

Recently i found a remix.
It's Sick

A tough week doing assignments and working has left me parched for some music.

while discovering the exsistence of this album just before christmas, i have only just had the chance to grab it. Turns out to be the perfect remedy to my tiresome week.
Hobo, a gentlemen from the depths of the Minus (m-nus) label has come out with Trackz.
Layed with blessed techno and kissed with bouncy fun.

Below are two tracks that can be found on the album, while i shant spoil you all with the entire album and will leave you to find it on your own accord, or purchase it.

Also, i have for you lucky people a nice free tune from Audion. Isn't he the nice chap.

Audion - Instant In You

A Hard Nights Work

After the ordeal of a computer catching a virus.
I have had to restore my iTunes and find my collection across the memory...

While nearing completion, i can't help but want to get on with a first musically enhanced post.
Five songs from the back-catalogue of yesteryear.

This song will always have a place in my heart as my first encounter of it was when my friend played it over the video of a monk setting himself on fire. horrific yet, somehow suitable.

Matt Star - Kuhle Fliege (Hugo Remix)

My next song is best explained as... Well, the title is a good start.
That warm, fuzzy feelling you get as you peak a rush.

A song that during my summer, was met with much gratification when played.
nothing you can do but nod slowly and silently

Definately a party starter, beginning with clapping woodblock sounds to only break into a strangely subtle pounding kick drum. its nice

And finally, some over ripe fruit...

Sour Grapes - Kharma


Starting the new year by spreading my wings and sharing some tech.

Also a nice way to kill the last 15 minutes at college.

Ciao x
