Break and Kyo, the two minds behind Symmetry Recordings, were kind enough to answer some of my questions ahead of their latest release SYMM031 – The Edge Of Time / City Slickers (Workforce/Skeptical Remixes). As an aside…this might be a first in Symmetry Recordings’ discography; a release of just remixes. If that’s true, then there […]

As such, I’ll be posting and tweeting links to Bandcamp pages, Soundcloud mixes, or music sales from your favorite producers and musicians […]
Do you enjoy lush, cinematic soundscapes with a tinge of drum and bass? Do you like joyful, mind fucking ambiance that tickles the cerebrum? Do you like audio enlightenment? Well good news, Kimyan Law’s new album Yonda on Blu Mar Ten Music is for you. I find Kimyan’s music to be masterful, but it might […]
In Blu Mar Ten’s typically understated way, they announced a massive collaboration with BCee of Spearhead Records, entitled Grow, that also features DRS, Charlotte Haining, and Lucy Kitchen. I was so taken with the title track that I pre-ordered a vinyl copy before the clip was finished. Dun a thing with BCee, DRS, Charlotte Haining & […]
It’s been awhile since I felt strongly enough about a release to do a lil Beats and Pieces work, but for this release on Viper I’m willing to dust off my keyboard and thesaurus. Rituals/Beyond, by relative Viper new-comer Millbrook (along with Odure & Disprove on Beyond) has tickled my ear holes. The first “A” […]
One of the blessings of this blog is that I’m inundated with new music on a weekly basis. Some of it is fantastic and some of it just okay, but I know that, whatever I think of it, someone else put in a lot of time and effort making it. Ultimately I am very thankful […]
This visually hypnotic video for the new Rum Baba EP on 31 Records is hype. This whole EP, entitled Hollywood, is killing it right now and I am excited to get my copy. You can pre-order it here. Stop Talking VIP is my Tune of the Day.
