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.
Running late on last weeks show so just the tracklist, no waffle, no links…
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.
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.
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.
Algunas joyas de la historia del House de Chicago/Detroit. Solo para auténticos amantes de este género apasionánte. Conducido y manipulado por Cesar de Melero.
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 […]
Como hemos afirmado ya en varias ocasiones durante este ejercicio estamos asistiendo a la consolidación de la escena electrónica nacional y muchos de los artistas que representan tal corriente ya están saboreando las mieles del éxito. Pero cuidado, no se nos confíen, que los nuevos talentos vienen pegando fuerte. Aquí una entrega más de Beatfull […]
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.
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.
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 […]
The nucleus of the Príncipe label may be in Lisbon, but the music they release is perhaps best described as “community music”.
Canadian producer Scott Monteith has long been one of the best dub and dub techno producers and Paul St Hilaire (aka the artist formerly known as Tikiman) is a living legend amongst reggae vocalists.
