Speak the truth better than any language


Concentrate… concentrate: Luciano @ DEMF

The beast is finally unleashed! My comprehensive review of the Detroit Electronic Music Festival (complete with quickie interviews) is now up on Resident Advisor. Easily my favorite piece of any I’ve done for them thusfar. Hopefully you’ll enjoy as well.

Cobblestone Jazz, “W” [Cocoon Recordings]
The boys over at Random Circuits have already gone down this road, but its quality (and a friendly reminder, thanks J) has prompted me to give it my rating as well. Its snub-nosed bass line is strikingly funky in spite of its concise nature, providing the footsteps for the disembodied, vocoderized vocal. The step-like progression of broad ambient planes brings the tune to a clear-headed peak over insistent a shimmy and shake house rhythm. In case you needed another reason to pick up Cocoon Compilation G, this is quite possibly its greatest selling point.

Heiko Laux, “Invasion” [Art of Perception]

Shahrokh & Sound of K, “Chicago” [Compost Records]
