Beatfull Day by scannerFM 026: la regeneración electrónica

Si bien en otras lides (sobra citar en cuáles) últimamente se habla de regeneración sin que la misma acabe por llegar, en el ámbito de la escena musical electrónica local podemos afirmar que tal regeneración es un hecho y por ello la disciplina goza de una salud envidiable. Basta con escuchar  Read more…

Audio Texture Radio Show – June 16, 2014

One of those old soul boys who are still doing it, Lee Fields, kicked off the show this week with a track from this new album out on Truth and Soul which paved the way nicely for some woefully short, yet super souful, beats from the one and only Madlib. Read more…

Audio Texture Radio Show – January 27, 2014

Another deep jazz cut from Yatha Bhuta Jazz Combo then stirred the show from its slumber and paved the way fro Titts‘ chopped and screwed bassline vibes, which led nicely into some submerged soul from Actress, closely followed by quality beats from Barcelona based Fitzroy North, snagged from his soon to come EP on Tiburoni.

CdV P070: Modern Love and Andy Stott

Since 2002 the Manchester based label Modern Love has represented a sort of litmus test of where current electronica is at. With the restless and predatory curiosity of a cat they have stalked out the forever opening frontiers, shifting from dub techno, to dub step and drum n bass, and then on to knackered house, dark ambient and now noise. But Modern Love has been an innovator of these trends and not a follower. One of their most lauded artists is Andy Stott who has been behind some of the most seminal albums and new sounds, over the last few years. This week we share the respect between the two, focusing on some new releases from label and some essential remixes from Andy Stott.

 

CdV P070: Modern Love y Andy Stott

 

Desde 2002, el sello Modern Love con base en Manchester ha representado una especie de prueba de fuego de donde la electrónica actual se encuentra. Con la curiosidad inquieta y depredadora de un gato han acechado a las fronteras que se abren continuamente, cambiando desde el dub techno, a dub step y drum n bass, y luego a knackered house, dark ambient y ahora noise. Pero Modern Love siempre ha sido un innovador de estas tendencias y no un seguidor. Uno de sus artistas más aclamados es Andy Stott quien ha estado detrás de algunos de los álbumes más seminales y los sonidos nuevos en los últimos años. Esta semana compartimos el respeto entre los dos, se centra en algunos de los nuevos lanzamientos del sello y algunos remixes esenciales de Andy Stott.

CdV P068: Best of 2013 – electronica

One of the most notable trends in electronic music in 2013 was the dominant impact of albums from artists working in left field and ambient-leaning electronica. It seemed that a great number of artists fully assimilated into the album concept and delivered masterpiece works that used the format to all its strengths while pushing themselves to unleash their sound in more unpredictable ways.

CdV P064: Electronica special

It is the last of our normal shows this week before we start a four part round-up of the best of 2013. We start with Roly Porter’s epic and dramatic track “Gravity” before turning down a cul-de-sac of experimental beat collages from _moonraker, Objekt and Diskotopia boss BD1982. Daniel Avery and Vester Koza steady the ship with some dreamy and trance-inspired techno and finally we close off with two tracks from Young Echo and Machinedrum that distort and rejuvenate the conventions of the vocal-pop song that feed nicely into Spanish artist Warmth’s chill out piece.

Audio Texture Radio Show – October 21, 2013

A nice soulful selection in a roundabout sort of way this week, a week when Boards of Canada have been releasing their back catalogue for all those slow on the draw the first time around. The new Om Unit album on Civil Music is a pleasant surprise with it’s pleasing musicality and some nice vocal touches, ably demonstrated by “The Road” featuring Charlie Dark. Some future hip hop then followed from Thriftworks and a track we plucked from the excellent new Project Mooncircle compilation showcasing artists new and old before The Poets of Rhythm reminded the show of their soul credentials.
