Electronic currently spinning

Recommended Posts

Possibly, I also enjoy many of the minimal experimental artists on the Touch label such as Fennesz, Oren Ambarchi, Biosphere and Ryoji Ikeda. Touch also reissues albums from the Mego label. The Raster-Norton also releases a lot of good experimental electronic including Alva Noto and Ryoji Ikeda. Thrill Jockey although not exclusively an electronic label have some pivotal electronic artists such as Oval, Mouse on Mars and Nobukazu Takemura.

Currently I’m listening to Fenessez/Daniell/Buck – Knoxville. This EP is a live recording of this trio. BTW the Buck in this group is none other than the Tony Buck from The Necks. I hope they release a studio album as this is simply too short.

I have a couple of Mouse on Mars CD's and enjoy them when in the mood. "Niun Niggung" is great and compared to "Radical connector" an easy listen. The latter one is definitely a more rare mood moment, - tough going.

A few more, the first two Ninja again, "Black Sands" from this year, jazzy in style and on my 2010 top buys list. "The music scene" from last year, a little harder edged and highly recommended. The last one Swayzac "Some Other Country" more techno and would be further into the 'electronic' description than the others.

That leads to a good question, much of dance music has an electronic element, so where does dance music stop and electronic music start.

The Bonobo album for instance has many tracks that some may say are not electronic music as such. As Thom Yorke says "Where I end and You Begin" It's a good metaphor, for much of his music too.

A good question indeed. Perhaps it could come back to the intent and/or effect of the music-does it make you feel like dancing? Does the music provide more mental fodder than just dancing?

I will end with another question. Music has more or less had a co-dependent relationship with technological innovation in order to progress. Computers are of the most recent, but, to an extent computer music has reached a point of technological perfection whereby MORE quality may emerge but in which new forms are unlikely. Therefore is electronic music the end of music?

Technology cannot end, well, not untill we do.

Surely they must have looked at the grand piano and thought 'this is the ultimate instrument'

Some bass heavy, dark and dirty dubstep to keep my head nodding on the way to work.

Vangelis is incredible.

This is a nice collection, turned up loud, with the lights down......

I'm no expert on the man but I do have one CD featuring his trumpet and Flugelhorn playing. It's the ECM album "No Matter" with Mark Nauseef, Kudsi Erguner and Bill Laswell. A strange album of mostly meditation and ambient sounds, quite beautiful in places, but definitely music to be in the mood for.

Having said that the awesome effect Nauseef's bells and gongs offer a few nice Hi-fi appreciation moments.

Chemical brothers: further - 1st spin. Sounds really good... But I have had 1 or 2 more vino's than I should....

I bought all the Chem's albums up 'till "Push the Button" which I thought was a lazy and weak effort. Haven't bothered with them since. Similarly Radiohead were going great untill they decided to backslide into rock with the "Hail to the Theif" rubbish. (IMO) I suppose these bands just do not share my vision and wonderfull taste :P

I think I'll give Yorkey a spin tonight "Eraser" just to show he's still cool in my book.

I listened to Eraser earlier tonight for the 1st time - I guess it was Ok...but I should have listened to it before the hype and without knowing who made it. I liked Thom's contribution go the current Mode Selektor album though... Unfortunately I misplaced my Mode Selektor files when upgrading my computer...
