The Villain - Permian Thoughts

This week I want to share this with you: a short, four-track long album, but whose calming power will enable you to replace the walls of your room with a starry night sky.

So, there you go, have a good one.

And if you like what you hear, don't hesitate, buy and give a little something, it's always appreciated and helps the artists go on. You might also want to take a listen at The Villain's other works.

Soul Thief - Cosmic Woman

Picture yourself in the middle of the desert.
The heat is hot.
But not too hot.
Somewhere, there's water.
A shining, sparkling river.
And somewhere in your mind, you know where it is.

You there yet?

All right, have a nice listening.

Desired - Desired

Future Funk is life, Future Funk is love !

Embark on a journey to the 80s, 90s with Desired, a russian producer who really managed to capture the essence of this groovy musical genre.

Just by listening, you will be transported to another time. A better time ? Possibly, for many things, maybe not for other things. But we'll focus on the good for now.

Also, take a listen to his other productions, you'll probably end up just as addicted as I am now.

Just put on your red shoes and dance !

b a k m a h n & Testarosah - Holy Oxygen

In the shining world of Vaporwave, there is more than just Macinstosh Plus and his/her famous track リサフランク420 / 現代のコンピュー., even if he/she's like the epitome of this music style.

This very rich musical world has been expanding since 2010, and many netlabels have taken to surfing on the vapor wave. Among them, you may write down the name of Business Casual, whose catalog of 172 releases is available for the modest sum of one petrodollar. Of course, it wouldn't be Vaporwave if you had to pay for it, that's the point.

Personally, I would rather listen to each release thirty times, in a calm atmosphere, with the least people possible around, and then buy them according to my goosebumps-o-meter.

What matters is quality, not quantity, apart when it comes to chips (or crisps).

The Villain - Magical Man & The Gritty Mysteries

I don't really remember how I stumbled upon this jewel, but I cherish the day the series of events that led to this one started.

It is without a doubt, one of the best Downtempo albums I've had the opportunity to listen to in a mighty long time. Chilly atmospheres and unidentified flying samples coming from old documentaries about electronic music will enchant you throughout this journey of an album.

As would The Villain say : "The final result is an obscure mess of chapters, narrative and tracklisting, during which you won’t hear even a single second of silence. Enjoy."

I don't have anything to add.

PS : I hope you've steered clear of Valentine's Day and only listened to cool music all day long, together or alone.

Who Ha - Synthwave Belongs in a Museum

I highly recommend you take a listen at those first five tracks, which are incredibly good "sunlight drenched crescent moon Canyon after a neon night" kind of music.

If you find yourself with people that didn't watch Indiana Jones as a kid, then you can skip the first track and play the sixth, which happens to be the same but without the Indy references. I was told it could be disturbing otherwise.

Life is good in the Synthwave dimension.

Yes, I know.
