I don’t usually recommend mixes but it’s a Sunday and this one is too good. Casey Borchert, hailing from Minneapolis in the U.S of A has presented us with a gorgeous Arctic Dub mix on Neonlogic World Radio. It’s an absorbing ambient/techno-dub affair. Excellent for thinking, studying and sleeping. Put it on and get to it.

Check out Borchert’s SoundCloud and the Arctic Dub Website.

Sorrow – Hieroglyphics EP by alex

Sorrow’s Hieroglyphics EP, from the UK-based dub label Fent Plates Records, can be easily summed up in this Bandcamp user review:

“One of the best EPs I’ve ever bought. Burial definitely played a big part in influencing a couple of songs, but it’s forgiven since they’re so good in their own right.”

Each of the five tracks are pure quality – but the gold medal goes to ‘Chronicle’. Can’t shake those grooves.

Check it out (along with other releases) on the Fent Plates Bandcamp.

On my latest label-digging frenzy I found Deep Heads – a UK-based dub label. Their latest release, the two-track debut EP from Audialist, is something you should indulge in immediately.

Stream the album (or buy it) here. For more releases, check out Deep Heads on Bandcamp.

サンクチュアリ  which translates to Sanctuary in Katakana, combines soft vocals and some psychedelic electric guitar chords which create an overall ethereal vibe to the track. Rareware works from Kentucky and mixes many Japanese inspired tracks which explore dreamy and sometimes video-game-like sound vibrations. This particular tracks reminds me of ‘Teletubies’ emerging from the soil.

 



The Network – When Ur Down [EP] by alex

The Network
, pseudonym of beat-maker Jesse Rintoul, recently dropped his first EP – after listening not once, not twice, but thrice, my verdict is in: it’s beautiful.

Presented as a 15-minute continuous mix, When Ur Down seamlessly blends between tracks, enveloping them in dark ambience and the familiar vinyl distortion you’d hear in a Burial releaseMore than anything, the sense of atmosphere Rintoul evokes is so tangible and real that you won’t have any trouble wandering off into the deep, dark recesses of your consciousness.

If you’re anything like me, it’ll keep resonating even after you’ve stopped listening – that said, given the nature of this release, the saying “you get out what you put in” couldn’t be more applicable. Take your time with it.

Speaking of… if you haven’t already started listening, do yourself a favour; sit down in the comfiest seat you can find, plug in your headphones, close your eyes and put it on.  This EP works in all the right ways – it’s visceral, emotional and a true reflection on the day and age in which we live.

In other words, soak up The Network’s When Ur Down; it’s something you won’t forget any time soon.

Leaks De Landa EP Launch by Chris

At age 19, Thomas Guida aka. Leaks is the youngest member of the Fuck the Radio Collective. His De Landa EP (out on the free digital label Absent Fever) was put out late May, and is holding up to be one of my favourite releases of the year (check out the brilliant I’m Glad You’re Still Here). He’s finally got a release party together with supports from Audego, Surf Dad and fellow brilliant Fuck the Radio artists Alta.

If you are in Melbourne on the 19th, you can head down to Ding Dong lounge, where Guida will be giving away 100 limited physical copies of the EP for free, and also playing for you live. As you can imagine, I have seen him live before and just a hint: it’s a good gig to bring a special guy/girl friend along to for holding hands and looking into each-other’s eyes n shit.

OR just go with your 100% nothing suss platonic mates and chill out to some soothing beats either way.

Fuck the Radio Collective homeboy Leaks went quiet for a bit while travelling.

Good to have him back. This track gets my BRILLIANCE tag.
