Blue - Mexican Church (Emissions Audio Output, 1996)
NHK - Unununium (Raster-Noton, 2008)
Ricardo Villalobos - Thé au Harem d’Archimède (Perlon, 2004)
Photek - Modus Operandi (Science, 1997)
Child’s View - Funfair (Bubble Core, 1999)
Given the dramatic shift in this blog towards a wide range of electronic music, it’s sort of surprising that the original iteration of the site had, by my estimation, maybe two dozen electronic releases. This post, another in a long line of “multiple posts,” collects a few of those releases along with very temporary uploads. Click the album title to snag each.
Each of these is a good record, with two of them (Blue and Child’s View) being contributions from other writers (Doc and Alex, respectively). They’re altogether “lighter” (read: more fun, not dumber) that what gets posted to the site nowadays. They’re either breakbeat songs, more or less, drum & bass and glitch genre exercises (in the case of Photek and NHK), or a slight variation on house (for RV).
Anyway, these are the slim pickings that support what’s become almost an electronic subgenre blog (juke, industrial techno, etc.). The links will last about a week, so check them out.
