Ludd - Dead End Future

Fat cats lost on the moon in small apartments, armies of ants taking over the forest, the planets aligning, digging a hole to the other side of earth, breathing underwater, uncovering hidden crystal cities... Those are the images I get when listening to this album.

It has a pretty weird feeling to it but I like it a lot, especially because it is so hard to categorize. I guess a question mark will do.

In a state between thoughtfulness and dream-inducing, nostalgic music... My favourite from Now Defunc Records.

Telan Devik - Hi Scores EP. Vol. 1

Happy new year ! I certainly hope 2017 will bring good news. No harm in hoping for good things I guess.

Here's the first 2017 article, welcome to the world little fellow.

Just enjoy this retrowave bordering on 8bit music, and see you around !

Vanilla - Origin

Happy new year ! Here's one of the best bestest chill albums ever made. Peace of mind and soul soothing will ensue, I can assure you.

Let's hope to the emperor 2017 will be a little less as crappy as 2016, which everyone seems to think was the worst year ever. I could name some that were a bit worse but let's focus on chill music for now.

Have a good one !

LDBK - All School Flavor Vol. 1

If you don't know about http://radiooooo.com/ yet, it's high time you did ! It's an internet radio that enables you to listen to music from all around the world, but also from different time periods. You can find out what people in Cuba were listening to in the 30's or what those in Kazakhstan are listening to right now.

I discovered the Laid Back netlabel through one of the tracks I heard on the aforementioned radio. Every time I hear something good, I try to find out if there is more and if it is free. There are always new surprises to discover and be baffled by.

So here's a compilation earning its name well, offering tracks from all schools, with a jazzy intro that will lead you to soul, hip-hop, dub, trip-hop, a little bit of everything, as long as it's chillin' grillin'.

Ok now, take a listen, see you soon !

Olivaw - Shell

When you begin to discover free music somewhere, expect lots of new aural pearls to be stumbled upon every day. I'm telling you !

After buying the album Forest = WIN, a collaboration between the ChipWIN collective and the russo-norwegian label Forest, I had the opportunity to listen to Olivaw's music. I was expecting good old Chiptune music and was a bit unsettled when instead I heard the sound of retro synthwave, kind of resembling what you can find in Perturbator's music.

You let yourself go and imagine a terrifying futuristic world, men and women like you and me taking up their courage and whatever lies on the ground to rise against the oppression of machines, setting themselves on a quest to blow up the gigantic computer that controls us all.

Retro synthwave yes, but with a personal touch, some electric guitar improvisations that perfect the mix here and there.

So long, have a good listening. And don't forget... They're watching...

4mat - Prompt (OST)

4mat is definitely an artist you should know more about.

While I'm not an inconditional fan of everything he produces, I recognize in his music a sense of the 'onirique' category that had been if not forgotten, at least put aside for a while, and that is dreamy music made with chiptunes.

Prompt is a platform game available on Steam that is famous for being really, I mean really difficult. The contrast of this description with 4mat's music is evident when you listen to this small album.

The tracks are all peaceful beings made of bits and pieces of sounds and rhythms. It will engulf you in a sea of bliss and nostalgy.

Well, what's left to do but listen ?

I don't know.
