Objekt - Flatland

Ooh sorry it's been a while. Darkness never dies however. Try to keep it up ho ho ho jolly and all. Given that i picked up this band called 'Objekt'. They mean it. Really no doubt they/ he/she has some history prior making this album. Sorry I'm too lazy to find out. Blame it on the google. Anyways this album flopped into my ears not like many other albums i listened to recently. Have a taste of theirs 'Agnus apparatus' to hear what i say.  YO!
I like the 90' like mac like logo too of the album but that's personal.

Oliver Tank - Yes Please

When I take the time to look for new music on the net I mostly bump into something by accident rather than copying shit from other blogs. This time I got quite frustrated actually reading all those (ambient) blogs with lots of fancy iPhone apps, such as colorful shiny looking dot sequencers making kids happy for ten minutes. Not for people interested in real music. I admit I was quite impressed by the KORG iMS-20 application at the time so don't think I hate new technology. As long as it is creative, which depends more on the user of course rather than the app or instrument itself it is worth trying it right? Anyways I bumped into Oliver Tank emerging from the Sydney wasteland high up into the sky where his musical mind is formed. It was a blessing finding his live performance on this blogpost in particular. I got interested and listened to his other stuff hidden on the web of which I particularly liked 'Past present future' a lot. There's something honest in his songs, pure if you may. You can find his other music through his soundcloud or nice label from down under, on 'yes please' records. Even pressed on wax!

Pogo - Nick Bertke

I remix stuff. This is the first thing you read when visiting his site. I say: understatement. You get much more than a simple remix of samples he collected from his favorite movies, games and other stuff that formed his twisted chopped up musical mind through the years. To be honest I was quite amazed how he handles samples in a crafty manner. Controlled by his skills the music ricochets through your brain which is already busy enough with the synced image editing. As I kept listening to his music I started to find a certain pattern and it became clear to me that he is the creator of a soundpallette that I have never heard before. Ok there I found out that more people are doing this stuff when browsing youtube, although not always with the class like Pogo. I'm not going to argue or discuss who was first with this kind of movie remixing. That’s stuff for history nerds to decide.

Pogo is the person who supports my theory that you can make music with any kind of samples as long as you have the art to glue them together in the right way to make it work. You could find it lame in using samples from famous movies, mix them and put them on youtube as they will get high ratings by definition? Haha try and see jealous guy, this stuff is gold. Next time when I hear the name 'Pogo' I will not link it to Digitalism anymore but to a fine artist who took me by surprise and is here to stay. On his blog you can read some personal issues and also fun stuff he encounters. All by all a very personal site. Like a friendly neighbor asking to have a sangria in his sunny garden. You can support Pogo by listening to his music, even buy some or download them for free due to copyright reasons (still with the option to pay want you want). Great concept. I feel ya Pogo. Glad to meet you.

Bishop - Dock Sud

"It's not an easy thing to meet your maker"
° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° °
° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° °
I got this cute little thing in my blogbox from Bishop originating from Buenos Aires. Dock Sud is a concept album which takes you back to future year 2072 (who said the world is gonna end in 2012?). I hear excellent computer programming simulating live recorded instruments, i like. Nice soundscapes combining classic ambient with spheric rock or coldwave as Bishop describes it. The album will release in feb 2012 but you can have a sneak preview below. Serious artwork too. You also can listen to his earlier work here, still i expect something intensive from Dock Sud. Got me flashbacking to the Blade Runner movie which I do not dislike.

Shackleton - Blood On My Hands (Ricardo Villalobos Apocalypso Now Mix)

In fact i should have posted this first and then the Pinch and Shackleton review below but hey just turn your screen upside down and you'll all be fine. Dance with the owls! Recommended on acid. Or on juno.

Pinch & Shackleton - album review

Back on track with a blessing from two dubstep heavyweights going darkstep. Pinch is mostly known from his LP Underwater Dancehall already released on his own label Tectonic back in 2007 while Shackleton (founder of the former Skull Disco label) has a few more mordant tracks up his sleeve as well as his Three EP's release. No heavy bass drops on this collab but crafty beats and noises melted with percussion finesse. I guess the future is moving on into the apocalyptic year 2012, so don't be afraid in bringing Bristol's finest under the Christmas tree. Works on any present occasion i guess especially for yourself to keep. Tested on vinyl only, but also available on digital intercourses at the known monopolistic mp3 sites or at their original meacenas for this album, honest jon's records. Cheers mate.

Bathroom music


I don't mean the title to be offensive. I like relaxing in the bathtub with some good ambient music coming out of my cheap radio speakers. Again I will not play any ambient music with dolphins on the cover but the following link has some good ambient vibes and thx to the creative commons license for all of us to enjoy for free. You can have a listen of course in all other dry circumstances. For relaxing times here you grab; Megatone – Anthology [SLNT007] or visit and listen online: Silent Flow Netlabel

Cosmic Spring

Now I'm not always into trippy ambient aka trance reminding me of several too colorful evenings. However these guys: Cosmic Spring collective could be an exception to my self made up rule that every ambient CD with a dolphin on it scares the living shit out of me. They surprised me and made me swim together with the jellyfish which earn as much respect in ambient music as dolphins do. Even more their music is free downloadable, grab it here. Enjoy the jellyfish dance. Yet again a hidden pearl at the bottom of the electronic ocean. Eat their shorts chemical brothers.


Cupboard replacement by Music AutOmatiK

I got this as a banner on my myspace page. Normally I don't check those things but hey what if I did. I was hesitating at a first listening, but somehow the music pulled me over to put it on my quality only premium ambient blog. No I'm not modest, just honest. So about Music AutOmatiK with their release 'Cupboard Replacement' just grab it while you can as I will not provide a backup. It is pretty interesting music, kept me listening all four songs and has enough twists to keep your ears spinnin'. Quality stuff. What really convinced me was the combination with the great videos, they mean business check it out:

Back on track

I had to travel to distant galaxies for a while therefore the blog wasn't updated for some time. SO back on track now. Please enjoy the site and stay tuned for quality control only and if blessed with exclusive on this blog only music from artists that release electronic souls towards your greedy algoritmic audible orifices. Today a fine clip I found on youtube by a fan of Chris Clark. The song is entitled 'Night Knuckles' taken from the great album 'Body Riddle' on the holy Warp-label. Hope you don't mind Clark we put this online, but again your work is genious and a great inspiration. Enjoy, again.
