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, […]

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.

This man and this label fascinate me. Eicher is credited as one of the first to use digital reverb as an instrument in minimal production. ECM releases are not stream-able, currently, which is a bummer. One has to procure practicalities or high quality digital downloads. Dave Wesley – Porto, Portugal

Check out the latest post curated and […]

Memory plays an essential role in the Portuguese management of life. And, I dare to say, it’s one of our most cherished elements. The past ignites the future and the creative mind triggers new possibilities and trails for the great archive. Music, in adventurous form, illuminates and elevates beauty, heights, and depths of our history’s emotional […]

Such is a case of recent random discovery, Mark Ward. Mark is a Sheffield musician with a degree in Fine Arts, “playing joyfully […]

Open Culture is a most amazing curated aggregation of interesting music, movies, education, videos, etc… all accessible for free. I have found a lot of sample food (for audio production) and interesting and inspiring nuggets. It’s an ever-deepening (already deep) well of content and I have a great amount of respect for Dan Colman. Someone […]

Springtime is being delivered earlier this year, by the Oregon´s duo Carlile and Doran aka Visible Cloaks. Reassemblage justifies beyond the duty… an immense dive into ambient and delicate abstractions, which grounds dreams and reality in perfect stillness. Essential since the first listen.

This is one of my favorite experimental ambient sets ever. The Buchla Music Easel doesn’t hurt either.

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.
