Check out TM404 (aka Andreas Tilliander) working the various Roland x0x units into a juicy ear massage. So good.

Phutureprimitive - Searching for Beauty in the Darkest Places Pt 1

Phutureprimitive fans rejoice! Here’s a new 5-track release to tickle you earbones with his trademark delicate balance of smooth-yet-nasty dubsteppy tunage, and a perfect dash of melody, arpeggios and vocals to keep things light. These tracks slide from your speaker cones like a comforting, silky sludge (the best kind!) and are sure to slay a festival dance floor near you this summer.

Preview it below and pick up your own copy at his Bandcamp page.

I absolutely love this promo spot for Moog’s new Sub Phatty synthesizer, with music by Flying Lotus and animation by Adam Fuchs.

In honor of the new Moog Sub Phatty analog synthesizer Flying Lotus & Adult Swim veteran, Adam ‘Lilfuchs’ Fuchs collaborated on a short animation called Moog Sub Phatty: New Machine For Living. You can hear the new Sub Phatty analog synthesizer in Flying Lotus’s original score for the animation, called ‘Such a Square’. Thanks FlyLo, Thanks Adam. Love, Your friends at Moog.

Woah, this Argaman double-album is something else. It’s Mad Hatter, psycho-electro-orchestral-circus music at its best. Reminds me a lot of the first time I heard The Other Side disc from Infected Mushroom’s double-release “Converting Vegetarians“, with a requisite splash of Shpongle at their wackiest. It’s also reminiscent of the wonderful differentness found in Kettel & Secede’s recent “When Can” release.

If you’ve been looking for music that’s fun and unexpected, then this is for you. Purchase is available via Argaman’s Facebook shop.

Great news for lovers of intricately crafted electronic music! Enig’matik Records has just dropped the follow up to their much loved (by me) compiliation, Painting Pictures in Silence. This second volume contains a whopping 22 tracks by some of the best sound designers in the biz, including Si Begg, Sun In Aquarius, KiloWatts, and Birds of Paradise. With elements of ambient, dub, glitch, downtempo, dubstep, breaks, and heavy washes of psychedelia, this massive release is sure to get A LOT of playtime from me and other connoisseurs of splendid beats.

Final cut of the full-length movie for the classic album. This utilizes the backdrop films the band used during their initial US, UK, and French tours for the album, with additional footage used for "Breathe" and live footage from 1972 added to "Time". The mix of the album for the video contains extended versions of "Speak To Me" and "On the Run".
