    Network 23 - Live at the Summer Happening 12th August 2017 -- moar from the lads ... this one is a live set, all nice mid 90s type stuff, sometimes a bit Orbital, sometimes a bit acid, and even a Kraftwerk cover. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff

    Network 23 - Space Rock! -- Lots of swirly keyboards and fluid lead guitar, sounding not unlike a mix of Ozric Tentacles and System 7 for the most part, and even a bit of Neu! in a couple of Krautrock style tracks. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff

    Electronic currently spinning

    I haven't dug into Ektoplazm in a while, since the site still uses flash, so I can't listen to any samples. But this is my favourite release from there: ??? - The World Beyond -- four long tracks, starting out all ambient and ending up full on goa trance (the artists aren't specified). And this would be my favourite compilation: DJ Basilisk - The Colours Of Ektoplazm -- a five hour mostly downtempo mix. Then of course anything and everything from Globular, Flembaz, Phobium, Soulacybin, etc. --Geoff

    DepthCruiser - Traveling Outside The Body -- this is an interesting one: lubberly 24-bit sound design and textures, leaning towards dub techno, with floating femme spoken word over the top. Noice. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff

    "Portrait Of The Photographer As A Middle-Aged Man" Nikon D750 camera + Nikkor 20mm lens @ f/1.8, ISO 400, 20 seconds. C'est moi, at Peregian Beach a few weeks back. Kinda transparent in places --Geoff

    Paulina Cassidy - Drawing Up A Storm and Sugar Wingshiver -- ethereal vocals and mostly ambient backing ... kinda Julee Cruise meets Agnes Obel in parts. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp (for a very limited time). --Geoff

    Network 23 - Laniakea -- 3 long electronic tracks, sounding a bit Steve Roach influenced to my ears: the first track is a polyrhythmic groove based affair, and the next two are more tribal in approach. Free lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff

    Steve Roach & Roger King - Dust To Dust -- an ambient americana album, all gunslinger acoustic slide guitar and keyboard washes. Kinda like Paris Texas meets Twin Peaks, and also not unlike A Small Good Thing's Slim Westerns album. I got this CD twenty years ago, and it's currently a "Name Yer Price" lossless download at Bandcamp for a very short time. --Geoff

    Network 23 - Return To Berlin (Part 1) -- a couple of blokes doing some electronic shiz inspired by the Berlin school sound of the 70s and 80s ... totes obvs, obvsly. There's also a Part Two and Part Three available. All are "Name Yer Price" lossless downloads from Bandcamp. --Geoff

    This is how I party on a Friday night at 3:00am : Nikon D750 camera + Nikkor 20mm lens @ f/1.8, ISO 1600, 10 seconds. --Geoff

    Currently Spinning

    Adam Fielding - The Broken Divide -- ephemeral chillout chewns with some vocals, kinda reminds me of "Steven Wilson goes electronic" in places (particularly on the track Time To Go). Noice. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff

    Currently Spinning

    Noël Akchoté - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Requiem, Vesperae & Nocturni -- Acoustic guitar renditions of Muzza's choral works. Not transcriptions, just a series of vignettes really, but just the thing for a bleary-eyed Saturday morning whilst I nibble me cornflakes. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff

    Plini on Vinyl!!!

    I got the Trilogy CD (compiling the 3 EP's) back in the day, even got Plini to sign it a gig (supporting Tessaract IIRC). The studio work seems a bit jazzier and mellower compared to the live work. See him (and his amazing band) on stage if you can. --Geoff
