An authentic cello piece

Here’s a fresh classical cello track heard so far by less than 20 people all together. It was played by a very close person to me at her recital – no mastering involved. Surely it cannot compare with the privilege of hearing the live performance itself, but perhaps your imagination can fill in the gaps…

When cometh Friday

Monday is afar from Friday, however, can’t wait really. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving my work, but music wise Friday will be a sweet one. Why? Well it is time for Helsinki Festival – 2 and a half weeks of arts and music really. While I won’t be participating in most of this annual celebration of summer and arts I will, however, partake in one concert – yes, on Friday. Liz Green (UK), a lady with a very charismatic sound, will be holding an outdoor concert in Helsinki. I’m looking forward to it greatly. Too bad you’re not there…

Dub to cool down with

Ran across this Adrian Sherwood remix by The Fader (US). Prepare for slow reggae and dub tunes, covers of Bob Marley and the likes. It’s another long track and a good effortless listen to set you in a mellow mood. Even the ladies like it – proved by a poll of one!

Slow dripping music

I’ve had a folkish day today. The skies have been kinda grey, but I found some music to pick up the mood. Here’s one of the day’s highlights – Harriet Starling and the Good Honeys.

Sweet tooth

Have a little candy pop for your electro swing sweet tooth. I’ve been enjoying this track on my new sound system and the bassline is pretty swell. Ahh and that swinging melody. Feel it rolling? It’s so catchy – it makes me feel sinister! The track is yet another outstanding performance by Kid Kasino, a UK electro swing producer well worth closer inspection.

Digging the deep end

Got some fun tech house music for a change.

A fresh acquaintance, Roberto del Burgo (GER), has just released a nice track running well over an hour. Now I’m not a great fan of long mixes, in fact I find them rather dull. Long tracks, however, work with house music – when listening is a secondary function. Incidentally this is exactly what I was doing.

The track works – just don’t expect it to be in a hurry getting there. It’s great if you’ll be surfing on, working on some dreary office tasks or just relaxing with friends! If you can’t wait, I’m with you – just scroll to around 16min mark for some fresh deep house sounds 🙂

Late nite track

A late nite post. Something relaxing. Soothing and calming. Raviv has released yet another beautiful track. Nothing really special – as the title may give away – but a little epiphany amidst the darkness… after a long oh so long a day.

Blue flowers w/ Green rain

Blue Flowers

Back from a very relaxing week off and it’s time to dwell back into the depths of audio culture. It’s amazing the transformation that has happened with media consumption in the last ten years.

No longer is currency the constraint limiting our consumption with asymmetrically infinite quantities of audio available online. With our time – or the length of our lives – as the only relevant constraint I feel the shift towards quality is inevitable. With over whelming quantities of audio – positive in on its own – we learn to appreciate the marvels of meta text that the progressive evolution of online media has brought about. Now we are at a point where even meta is approaching infinity. How many layers of meta do we need to listen to good music..?

To the point:

Dr. Octagon is dead. Never-the-less let us reminisce on a track celebrating our favourite extraterrestrial gynecologist. I do feel that classical horror movie vibe underneath Kool Keith’s lyrics – is it just me or is this movie theme becoming a definitive soul of the blog? Incidentally Dan the Automator is the common denominator. He’s had his hands deep in this track as well as in “strangers on a train.” I love the original track with its bizarre lyrics only matched by the absurd complexity of our audio culture. However, this remix by Mr. fli for me at least has a very attractive electro twist with definite value added to the original.

Brooklyn is yellow!

Xaphoon Jones was kind enough to post this track on his blog and while I would have been a little bit more conservative with the wording his comment “HOLY FUCKING SHIT” is just about right! This track is mad. The Brookly duo Weekend Money have definitely got their set together on this one.  They’ve even got a flashy blog worth checking out in case you’re interested … Here

On a side note, I’ll be off for a week or so – in case you miss me. But I’ll be back, stay tuned!

Creepy classical

I’m not entirely sure what to make of a track that I ran into recently. Yet I keep coming back to it. Raviv Gazit has whipped an interesting journey for the listener. With piano and eerie effects we are taken to the heights of something indescribable, borderlands of imagination. All I can say, it’s quite captivating and I hope you enjoy it.
