Sometimes it takes stacks

It seems as though Ripperton isn’t going to let up on releasing quality singles anytime soon. “Skilift Upstairs The Sleeping City,” out on Marc Romboy’s Systematic Recordings, doesn’t stray far from the elements which have gained him so much acclaim. Crafted from an entrancing pathway of rapidly shifting and repeating pads, a climbing and descending vibes arrangement echoing the serenity of an airborn trip over fresh snow, and an electron-infused vapor which crackles contently to itself, “Skilift” is a blissful excursion. For me, it easily ranks among Ripperton’s best and I can’t wait to purchase it.

Ripperton, “Skilift Upstairs The Sleeping City” (purchase @ Juno here)

Sia, “Numb” (Paradise Soul remix)

Heidi vs Riton, “Vejer” (Jesse Rose remix)

Carl Craig, “A Wonderful Life”

Daniel Taylor, “M.O.R.D.” (Loco Dice remix)

Over the weekend Resident Advisor received a much-needed makeover which makes it easier on the eyes, more functional and also easier to navigate. Definitely check that out. Also over the weekend, the folks at French blog jaws tight! made its last post. I’m not sure why, thanks to Babelfish’s wildly inconclusive translation, but they have a new blog going called Get the Curse, which is entirely in French and appears to be completely reviews-based. Hopefully my French readers get something out of it.

My friend DJ Tornado sent me his latest drum ‘n bass mix, which sounds great to me despite my utter ignorance of the genre. You can download that here (March 2007 set); tracklisting is provided there as well.
