C PLUS PLUS, ABWANDS & KARMELLOZ - Yeti Vision [Unreleased, 2017]
A loopy acid motor, haunting voices, tribal drums and comforting synths all interweave, driving you deep into the unknown.
HIEROGLYPHIC BEING - What We See We Become [Music From Mathematics, 2011]
Another live jam over here with a similar vibe but with more focus… Do you think it was intended to make you dance straight ahead or lift up in the air? These crystal synths remind me of mystical creatures that light up the night... Your only friends in the darkness.
MINIMAL VIOLENCE & SOSO - No Name [Unreleased, 2017]
Acid banger done right by this quadra-clan of powerfully creative female artists. Fat rolling bass sprinkled with seductive lady voices and subtle animal noises, ruff ruff. All pets welcome to join in the boogie, 2-step, 4-step, whatever works.
RYAN PIERRE - Bend it like Bukem [Unreleased, 2017]
Another hard acid groove that will make you sway from side to side for all 4 and a half minutes, eyes closed. Can’t decide what’s better, that wet modular bass or the drops?
JENIFA MAYANJA - Rift [Bass Cadet Records, 2017]
Jenifa uses melodic and cinematic pads and synths to complement a percussive rhythm on this Orbits release. Straight up euphoria!
RICHEART - Purple Grace [Gravity Graffiti, 2016]
I guess this list is turning into a mathy acid beat compilation. Richeart's witty use of classic jazz to complement the already complex rhythm makes me wish I got invited to whatever parties this guy goes to, sign me up!
SEA URCHIN - Opal Reflected first mix 4 [Unknown, 2017]
How did this loopy masterpiece pass so far under the radar? Tronic Sea Urchin is a trippy dub duo that bring meaning to nonsense and mastery to simplicity. By combining playful sounds and mysterious narration, they welcome you to join their spiritual rainforest ceremony. It seems this track was featured on a tape so if anyone can locate which tape that was, send me a message and I’d be forever grateful.
Arsenio - Arsenio II [Unreleased, 2017]
A multi-layered techno trance journey for the freaks! Very underrated emerging artist. Perhaps an alias of someone?
