Words and curation by Aurora Halal.
Guava – Framboise Baby (Control Freak Recordings)
I can’t remember what frenzied Bandcamp wormhole led me here, but I hadn’t heard of this artist until I found their tracks and was very delighted when I did. I’ve rinsed this and another track ‘Segelflugzeug’.. They’re lethal weapons when deployed at the right moment.
Sansibar – Teal’c (Kalahari Oyster Cult)
I’m obsessed with Sansibar.. very deep but propulsive at the same time.
Special Request – Stairfoot Lane Bunker (Minor Science Remix) (Houndstooth)
I’ve been collecting modern drum n bass / techstep for the last years and rarely get an opportunity to play it, but I did last week for an Ukraine benefit and this went offffff! The sound design is insane.
Rene Wise – Pleasure Note (SK_eleven)
I’d call this one a long-blend mystic energizer.. love that yeoww sound.
Huerco S – Plonk X (Incienco)
Hard to pick a single track from this wonderful record on a great label.
Sepehr – Corsortium (Dark Entries Records)
Sepehr is killing it, so many sick tracks! I love the sleazy, late night funk energy of this.
Priori – Ani Ma (NAFF Recordings)
I keep coming back to this beautiful song from Priori‘s first album. His music is always delicately composed and emotionally complex.
Versalife – Cyclical Pathway (Conforce)
More luscious late night deepness from the electro master.
Beta Librae – Dawn (Coloring Lessons Records)
Squiggly wiggly swagginess from the low key GOAT.
Alan Backdrop – Tetrahedron (self-released)
Immersive, expansive techno.
