Also this Deepchord remix, can't hurt to have some more summer night DC material! It's quite playable for a DC track aswell. Track is super long, nice to put on and drift off.



That remix is quite nice, nice share.

Really, really digging that 'Daniël Jacques Discovery Change' release. Like you said, nothing groundbreaking, but excellent stuff nonetheless. Might need to track that down.


My viewing listens often go in cyclical waves, and I really haven't been listening to much electronic music recently - mostly been into classical music and hip-hop. I'm sure as the days get longer, however, and I spend more time indoors I'll start to get back into it. Also need to buy, yet again, another pair of headphones, as the sound has started to die in my left bud.

I feel like a sort of Random Talk of MD is a fine idea - anything to generate real posts/discussion.

For the record, I want to point out how the beloved Rubez says he isn't here to make friends and then, in the very next sentence, complains how he feels unwelcome. Quite delicious.

coming to a site to engage in discussion, and share stuff with like minded people does not equate to wanting to make friends... don't know why the two are joined in your mind.

my only argument was that some users here make others feels unwelcome. the OP then proceeds to tell me to fuck off and that no one like me. that would be delicious if it weren't so sad.

@Lews

Seems like he has released digital here https://jadac.bandcamp.com/releases

The TC80 and Deepchord stuff is vinyl only as far as I know.

I see he's done 4 parts, I wonder if they'll all be released as one CD or something like that.

My listening has been predominantly split between loads of minimalist piano / modern classical, and a few ambient discoveries I'll share.

1. I was reading another one of Kris Weston's rants about his time in The Orb and he pointed out that every single track on Ultraworld was made by a different person. One of my favourites (Star 6 & 7, 8, 9) was made by Tom Green, who I'd never heard of. Another Fine Day is his most prominent alias. Life Before Land is something of a sleeper ambient classic, but his newest album A Good Place To Be is almost as good. Both are incredibly light and airy, perfect for summer, but also extremely well written and filled with deft touches.

2. Another early '90s sleeper from Gas (no, not that Gas). There's a lot of ambient techno and so-called "intelligent techno" from that era that is an almighty pile of wank, but this album delivers on the concept better than almost anything I've heard outside SAW 85-92. Fantastic sound design, melodies that will actual float in your head after the last track has finished and vintage early '90s vibes. Great shit.

3. I'm surprised you've never mentioned this one Woony, Mu was the other ambient opus released by Acronym last year, and I actually prefer it to June. Again, very light and airy, perfect for summertime chilling. Although it was only released last year it fits in very well with the previous two releases.

4. Thylacine - Transsiberian. Came across this one because the lead single got an epic club remix from Michael Mayer, but the source album is basically ambient house, Northern Exposure style, made in a 2016 stylee. Lots of sampled ethno-chanting and feel good harmonies, but out go the breakbeats and trancey textures and in come more acoustic instruments and contemporary influences. Quite nice to hear a classic sound updated without just slipping into retro pastiche mode.

@ Lews
I don't think there's going to be a CD, just vinyl and digital. He's releasing them in a weird order for whatever reason, first Part 3 and now Part 4, Part 1 and 2 aren't out yet.

@J
I did check out Mu when it came out but kinda forgot about it when June came out Both are good but I prefer June because good ambient techno is really, really rare commidity while Mu is beatless and I feel like there's tons of nice-not-great ambient for every theme. I also don't listen to huge quanitites of ambient so tend to listen to tried and true stuff. Your right though, I just give it another go since it is very nice.

That Gas album is great! Never heard of it, even though I should since it perfectly fits my profile.

The Another fine day record also sounds promising.

On the topic of ambient, i've been listening to a bit of old glitch/clicks n cuts recently.

Namely Alex Cortex debut album from 2000 (https://www.discogs.com/Alex-Cortex...ic/master/39712) Track 1 is my favorite and it's on youtube. Soft, melancholic pads, interesting rhythm and weird glitchy sounds make for a great combination.

And of course the super classic from Oval '94diskont' (https://www.discogs.com/Oval-94-Diskont/master/14200). Amazing, how much mileage in warmth and atmosphere he got out of these glitch sounds, much more than the later clicks n cuts imitators.

SND reissued their first few EPs a few years ago and I just started picking them up (https://www.discogs.com/Snd-Tplay/master/712131). Soundwise they are bit of a dub-techno-IDM-glitch hybrid, warm digital hissing chords over sparse beats. And some glitch sounds. It's not well produced music in a technical sense, often there are whole frequency bands missing, but there's just something about the digital warmth and sparese-ness it that I find very appealing. I think it's pretty fascinating how great the music made with the 90s primitive computer technology sounds versus a lot of the minimal drab made with the mid 2000s much more advanced DAWs etc.

I like it when the beat goes doof doof doof doot untz:

Which is why I haven't posted around here in a while. It's either +170 BPM stuff or Brazilian trap house/breakbeat, mostly:

Let's just say I'm glad I've ever said I've got good taste in music

Yeah, I saw that Part 3 was on Spotify (my go-to for listening these days), I wondered if 1 and 2 were vinyl only or what... Glad the order is just odd.

Share some of the modern classical as well!

I'll need to check out that summery ambient, too. This weather is killing me...

Do you have any plans to make another fluffy 'Marta Music' mix for this summer?
