This week we return to the constantly shifting frontiers of bass and grime as we feature a heavy contingent of UK artists, but also plenty more from further afield, especially the USA. Stylistically we also cover plenty of ground, starting with a couple of recent tracks that push the boundaries of instrumental grime, like SD […]
It is easy to take Martijn Deykers for granted. For the last decade the Dutch producer has been a constant presence at the forefront of electronica, crossing over from drum n bass to dubstep and then on to house, but never abandoning the tropes of the other styles as he has moved on.
Back to techno this week as we head north to Sweden and the home of the shadowy producer who goes by the name of Abdulla Rashim.
Despite only being 21 years old German producer Max Graef has a distinctly mature sound.
This week we return to the fold of Sonar 2014 and recap some of the highlights, lowlights and tendencies from this year starting with Japanese all-girl group Nisennenmondai who delivered the standout show with their tight and edgy minimal dystopian techno thrashed out on guitar, bass and drums.
Straight after Sonar weekend there is only one type of electronica music we need at Cabeza de Vaca and Scanner FM and that is dub techno.
The career of Italian producer and DJ Donato Dozzy has developed much like his music: slow, mercurial, hypnotic and gradually overwhelming.
Despite being a prolific artist who is always up to something new, solo albums by Austrian artist Christian Fennesz only seem to come around once in a while.
Cabeza de Vaca loves the World Cup. It’s a chance to collect a new set of Panini, to go to the pub and watch three matches of elite football every day for a month and to listen to your favourite football tracks, and with every world cup there’s always a new one, usually by Pique’s […]
Another mix this week as we move studio and consequently the theme is movement, an idea perfectly captured in the music of Phillip Sollman as Efdemin.
Our first bass music program of the year finds dubstep either on the ropes or nonchalantly promiscuous, particularly with techno, with many traditional artists and labels edging towards more regimented sounds. Yet there are still plenty at the core who are capable of interesting and innovative tunes including the impressive Wen who has delivered “Signals” […]
It has been a couple of years running in which the scene has been alive with retro house issues.
An out of body experience this week as we are out of the studio and instead present an ambient mix that is out of this world.
In a recent interview Jack Dunning aka English producer Untold said that “having intense experiences with music that you don’t quite understand” was the way in which music moved forward.
Gunnar Wendel aka Kassem Mosse has always been an understated figure in electronic music. He has been quietly leading the line for years, being one of the pioneers who ushered in the recent wave of dirty sounding house long before it was fashionable. But his sound has always been distinct, combining a nonchalant and languid […]
Sometimes Perc still feels like a new artist, but it is easy to forget that his rise to prominence has taken a decade of hard work, perseverance and risks. The north London-based artist has recently delivered his second genre defining album “The power and the glory” which mixes blatant experimentalism with crunchy and battering rhythms […]
