State Azure is true to his unique style, take us on a nostalgic trip, juggling with lofty and dreamy atmospheres, building palaces in the clouds, where we end up, tiptoeing amid columns of vapour, to sit quietly and enjoy a bit of music.
Still self-published, still free-priced, and still British. An excellent album that is not reserved to eagle-headed connoisseurs.
See you again soon, best regards.

On the whole he gives an interesting chilly blend that is pretty hard to define. I'll let you be the judges of that.
This album is out on Dub Temple Records, which features not only, but lots of free-priced releases you ought to check out.
See you soon.

The first track will keep you taped to the rest until the end. Bumpy road ahead, you will know when it begins but never when it ends. Well, some tracks even end abruptly, leaving you stranded, and some I like a bit less than others. But on the whole, in theres is a bunch of excellent tracks to add to your all-time favourites. Funky delicious grapes of groovy glitch music.
This album is made of remixes of 'Freakquency', another from ZEE that... well why not listen to the original while it's standing right over there ?
See you round.

I am currently reading the classic Lord of the Rings and played this music while the book describes the climbing of a high, dark and never-ending stair, flanked by chasms at the bottom of which you can see a corrupted and dead city, encircled by weird flowers and prickly mountain bushes.
I hope nobody is going to mistake the fact that I deemed it very à-propos for such a scene...
And I say this to you: whenever you get the chance to find a free(-priced) album at Mystic Sound Records, you can buy with your eyes closed, there's a 99.99% chance it's going to be excellent.
Also, you'll appreciate the music better with your eyes closed, of course.
Well, see you next time !

Another good find at our good russo-norwegian friends at Forest which get together newcomers and old buccanneers of the (almost) pure soundwave to take us far into unknown territories, full of pixels, of colours.
Only good stuff here (so far, I'm listening to it right now, same as you). It makes me want to go and play Gameboy in front of the Saint-Basil Cathedral...

The talent of Alex Mauer, Cheap Dinosaurs and Disasterpeace fuse into one collection of very short tracks following each other like small electronic gnomes heading for the memory mine to dig up some diamonds.
If this comes from a video game at all, I must get it as soon as possible.
