  • Deep Ambient Vaporwave From Japan: ekoda

    Dave Wesley, January 2nd 2018

    I virtually stumbled upon this great and prolific ambient vaporwave artist on Bandcamp on the first workday of 2018, which I am sure is a great omen for the year.  Googling ekoda produces no relevant results.  Another mysterious and wonderful aural find.  This music is haunting, concise, and specific.  I’m in melancholic love.  Don’t let […]

    • Mysterious Experimental Ambient from April Larson

      Dave Wesley, December 13th 2017

      Thanks to Bandcamp related releases suggestions, I’ve made another recent discovery of an underground experimental ambient producer, April Larson.  Don’t let the unassuming name and smiley photo fool you.  Her voluminous productions are dark exploratory ventures… aural cinema at it’s poetic best. Warm regards, Dave Wesley – Porto, Portugal Louisiana Gothic by April Larson

      • Rapoon

        Dave Wesley, December 11th 2017

        It’s hard to believe that I have only recently discovered Robin Storey’s ethno-ambient production alias, Rapoon.  With ample discography and diversity within the tight range of borderline experimental music that I would refer to as “artistically inspiring”, I feel like a detectorist, in my own back yard, with obnoxiously squealing detector. You can find a […]

        • loscil – Drained Lake

          Dave Wesley, September 13th 2017

          Having done some work designing music for dance and visual media, I appreciate a magic combination when I experience it…  This piece is amazing and emotional.  Loscil is one of my artistic heroes.  I’m really confused why you don’t have all of his releases. Music by loscil Choreographed and Performed by Vanessa Goodman Video by Scott […]

          • Ângela Polícia – Pruridades.

            Gabi Von Dub, March 22nd 2017

            Killer release on Crate Records, throwing some ripples of purity in the mind zone. In the collaborative and passionate Portuguese hip-hop scene, not every record reaches my heart as deep as this one. Ângela Polícia speaks with clarity, breathing every track with such an unusual honesty and tone, delivering to the world truth and compassion, […]

            • Re-Post – Jan Jelinek: Sampling matters

              Dave Wesley, March 21st 2017

              Oli Warwick’s timely and salient Resident Advisor piece on Jan Jelinek  fascinates and brightens my week.   Jan Jelinek’s (now classic) groundbreaking sample/cut/copy/paste/glitch production is a huge influence and inspiration to my own music production and listening palette.

              • Repost – The 10 Weirdest, Most Wonderful Ricardo Villalobos Tracks

                Dave Wesley, March 4th 2017

                As a producer and a listener, I still have a strange but healthy fascination with Ricardo, even though he seems to have settled into his musical context.  I will always give his new stuff a listen to see if he has returned to bending the rules. Re-posting this cool article from Pulse.

                  • Crate Diggers – Flávio Freitas – Drive

                    Dave Wesley, November 15th 2016

                    Until every track, sample, stem, digital image, etc. is watermarked or Blockchain enabled, we have the advantage of listening to expertly crafted mixes from true crate diggers like Flakka (Flávio Freitas), from Porto, Portugal.  I have had the extreme good fortune to be in his presence many times, along with his cadre of fellow diggers […]
