SINGLES CRUISE

DID MIRO – “TOKYO CITY KEIBA”

Inspired by the multi-disciplinary work of Felicia Atkinson and the visionary percussion of Eli Keszler with the inherently disorienting act of traveling, the Australian artist did miro harnesses these influences to create a shifting and evolving electronic track that utilizes triggered vocal samples, percussive stabs of synths and woozy, lo-fi beats to create a laser-guided …

HIDEO NAKASAKO – “OVAL”

I really love the concept of “repeated sound particles and noises melting down psychedelically.” In “Oval” where hear a heavily reverb-ed environment where dripping water becomes a digitally fractured soundscape that slowly melts into itself.  This is matched with patiently looped, tape-warbled melodic passages that slowly move out of the peripheries of the composition to …

Highly recommended.

INTRO_P – “SECOND CHANCE (ORIGINAL MIX)”

Delving deep into a nocturnal world of Progressive House played through a lens that accentuates the genre as a palatte to discover strange new sound configurations and rhythmic patterns that collide and then scatter apart, the Andalusian electronic artist harvests from 90’s IDM, Tech House and Kraut to create this wild, submerged jam.   Listen on …
