Too small to be an entire post. Kind of like a tweet
- goosebumps mix #47 tracklist is up. Some very nice releases in there. Electro, Detroit Techno, Acid, all round good vibes. Big shouts to Svenio for sharing these! So far, I've listened to Relpek by Infiltrate & Habibi Bass by Cyan85 vs Turk Turkelton
- dgoHn is releasing an EP soon. Naturally I listened to the one song that
￼s out, and also checked out the album Undesignated Proximate by dgoHn
- Skee Mask is the one who brought dgoHn to my attention with this remix.
- Barker’s Unfixed is out! This dude is one of my favourite percussionists and all-round producers. This release is no exception, stellar work as always. Gave me a fun start to the day yesterday. Golden Hammer is my stuff!
- Popottam by Calabasa - fun dance (house) tune
- I listened to Kompakt's Pop Ambient 2001 and enjoyed the bulk of it.
been a wile since I sat down with the sole intention of listening to music. happy to have made time for it these last few days
the most reliable source of high quality music has been friends, I'm almost entirely out of the world of algorithm recommendations. Even release radar is not as high a priority anymore.
Think about it this way, if you read an old book and hit on insights that still resonate as true, you know they’ve been true for a long time, and they will continue to be true in the future. That’s an insight worth paying attention to. While this approach seems less sexy than reading the latest best-seller everyone is talking about, most books fail the test of time.
The same can be said about old music 😄
to this day I continue to be amazed by the quality, depth, diversity and all the other good words associated with music from the 90s. halfway through this album and it’s been such a treat, especially for the clicks & cuts or minimal techno fans.
This was a really good amient playlist. thoroughly enjoyed it, love most of the tracks in here. Obv biased because I'm a huge fan of Rival Console, lol.
The core of my music taste hasn’t changed much over the years
I’m just finding more and more of what I like. I know instantly when I hear a ‘new sound’ that I connect deeply with.
these sounds stay with me for years after being discovered.
note to self
lovely dubs here. opening track made me pull a serious bass face
Some downtempo essentials, these. I've played these in quite a number of sets over the years
This podcast was an enjoyable listen. Was good to get an up close & personal with Sam.
Ambient !== drum-less!
Something I've recently had to remind myself of. I was beginning to associate ambient music with drum-less drones & rhythms, but that's not the case.
Ambient clicks & cuts, who'd have thought. lovely surprise delivered by shuffle.
Followed up by a lovely Monolake track
Shuffle is winning today!
Straight techno with a little bit of acid sprinkled on top. 13 minutes of bliss!
Flylo brought together so many cultures in his GTA V radio. I really like that about the radio.
The further I've gone down rabbit-holes of music I like, the more I've found myself coming back to music he introduced me to all those years ago. Respect.
soft metallic timbres, and drone notes laced with a delayed arpeggios. lovely sound to get lost in.
Scale your efforts as a music curator. In practice, that means listening to other curator's playlists.
You can't listen to all the music by yourself, and a lot of the time, when exploring a new sound, it is very likely that someone else can deliver a much tidier 'best of' than you could by yourself.
I've found music that I've adored for years, from other curators, and continue to find lots of dope shit that way.
Written whilst listening to a playlist by Adrian :)
I've said it time & time again, I love me some good drums. This track is a solid example of Barcode’s drums
Deep, but percussive & warm too. Amazing to be able to balance sound like that. It’s sonically pleasing
Would definitely recommend a full exploration of this dude's discography, I've thoroughly enjoyed his music over the years :)
One of my favourite deepchord songs. Love the quiet drowned out melody in this one
Just watched the deep orange sunset, with this as my soundtrack
It’s been fun to experiment with ‘interlude’ tracks when doing DJ sets They make for a very good energy reset. A palette cleanser
Goosebumps mixes have evolved to a full spectrum experience I’m not genre or tempo locked anymore. I’ll share whatever I feel you might enjoy, :)
My week in music
When I felt like a particular week had a story worth telling, I'd carry on with the weekly playlist format. These even powered a few mixes along the way, and were always a low effort playlist to enjoy on shuffle, when I feel like hearing recent favourites.
i’m listening to this track in the car. now, this radio is connected to bluetooth via modulator, and this particular modulator gives this particular shower sound, and it’s loudness is directly proportional to the radio’s volume level. basically, the higher your volume knob is, the louder that shower sound is.
now, in this moment, it’s a cold morning, but i have the windows down, and heater cranked on almost to the max, so you can hear it consistently working that heat into the sound. this is source two of background noises.
the sound/timbre of the heater is being modulated by the sound from this track. mind bending experience, very lovely feeling, totally unique listening experience.
