PRIVATE AGENDA – “MALANAI ASCENDING (REMIX BY SEAHAWKS)”

UK duo Private Agenda have quickly become one of my go-to artists for pure bliss-out transcendence. One part Komische zone riding, one part Air style posh beats, this Balearic rising remix of “Melanai Ascending” by the almighty Seahawks, is pure satisfaction. A surging bass line never quite lets it’s grip up on as slight hand …

THE PAPER SEA – “THE SLEEPERS IN(N) / THE CENTER SHALL HOLD”

We have two tracks from the excellent Los Angeles based post-rock / neo-classical artist The Paper Sea with “Sleepers In(n) and “The Center Shall Hold”. With “The Sleepers In(n)” we hear the deft interplay between slide guitar and a minimal piano line finding purchase in the negative spaces produced by the sparse but strongly felt …

LÖVGREN – “SOMETIMES I DOUBT YOUR COMMITMENT TO SPARKLE MOTION (REMIX BY ØYVIND MATHISEN)”

ISHMAEL CORMACK – “YELLOWSTONE”

A soft track filled with patient unfolding melodies that twist into spontaneous and beautiful shapes, “Yellowstone” from Ishmael Cormack has an immediate slowing of the blood. Backwards flowing melodies float atop some truly full and rich ambient pads while found sounds are processed into new lives. As Cormack puts it, “This work continues my obsessions …

PIXELORD – “NFT ACID”

Airy, wordless vocals, jagged breakbeats, acid-tinged arpeggios and a truly gorgeous outro that offers a safe comedown from the laser-pong beat-fucked trip that just happened. Pixelord’s “NFT Acid” has all of that in spades along as it hurdles through genres and influences creating a wholly new nexus of history and music-as-commodity. Brilliant work.
