  • Release – Inner Ocean Records’ BLESS Vol. 1

    Dave Wesley, May 26th 2017

    My penchant for deep lo-fi dubby techno and chill music is almost equaled (and was preceded by) an obsession with deep lo-fi dirty instrumental hip hop and trip-hop.  DJ Krush performed a show of minimal hip-hop beats and atmospheres at Sursumcorda nightclub in Minneapolis (circa 2001) and it re-contextualized my sonic world. Inner Ocean Records […]

  • But Darling It’s Hideous EP – CY006

    Adas Butler, May 20th 2017

    Contort Yourself, purveyors of obscure, difficult industrial noise that damn well makes your body move, are on their sixth compilation, and this one is flat-out great. As usual, it’s a mix of old and new, with the standout discovery being Penelope’s Fiance, a Greek producer who shifts uncannily between the unsettling and the sublime. There’s two […]

    Quick posting this super cool mix.  If you needed a desert island source of interesting mixes, Secret Thirteen might just be your fix. “Composer and percussionist Eli Keszler records an eerie yet bright collage of contemporary jazz, world music, and dub reggae released between 60s and 90s.” Sincerely yours, Dave Wesley – Porto, Portugal
