Erothyme - Circadia

After listening to all his albums, one can only understand that Erothyme is an artist of exception. This peculiar sound that is caracteristic of his own style, a quality of composition almost unequalled. Circadia, this astonishing album that continues the dreamogenic feeling initiated by Empathic Circuitry is an invitation to fly away from one's sofa to the skies and tickle the clouds, to go for a walk in the greens somewhere, to watch closely a colony of ants at work from a high-placed branch. One of my new favourite albums that's for sure. To all lovers of tranquillity : add it to your best-of folder...

Poetic Intelligence - Mistakes & Handshakes

Just some nice Hip-Hop I've found today, great beats, great flow, an old-school feeling on top of that. It is a little collection of new and old tracks from Poetic Intelligence. Check their other releases, they're all free !

Mute Speaker - Take Yourself Apart

Another great release by Rob O'Hara aka Mute Speaker, full of chilly beats, hips and hops, groovy grooves (if I may say). Don't hesitate to take a look at his full discography, everything is name your price and high quality music ! Got to love this sound.

Cloudkicker - Beacons

Here's another old discovery. I don't know why I did not post it earlier, because it's astounding. The name's Ben Sharp, talented guitarist, aka Cloudkicker, making all his music at home in Ohio, the result is a powerful instrumental progressive metal that can easily compete with all the masters of the genre like Porcupine Tree or Dream Theater (yes I know these are widely known but I do not fancy myself a specialist of progressive rock and metal, although I would like to...). The album presents itself like a story with a steampunk feeling, something like the crash of a zeppelin. Each track is named like the sentence one of the passenger could have said during that event. Yes I'm extrapolating, no I don't know if that is really what Sharp had in mind. But you need only listen a bit.

Various Artists - Into This Wired Abyss Vol. 2

Have you ever heard of a blend of psybient, dubstep and glitch ? Well if you pressed play before reading, you have now. I won't take too much of your time, just an impressive collection of tracks compiled by Atman Construct for  nothing else than pure pleasure.

I know I rarely say anything negative, but that is only because I think putting mediocre quality music on my blog is not productive at all, we all know some bad albums or failed mixes, but we needn't hear or read about them do we ?
Download and preview the album on Ektoplazm by following this link.

V-Dizzle - 8 Bit Chronicles

I have to thank Raphzor for this one, I remember one particular night when this music made the air vibrate with magic and bits of wonder-information. This is quite a strange venture into the 8-bit world, as this is not completely 8-bit music but there is such a strong willing influence of it from track 1 to 20 that I have to put it here. A very nostalgic sound full of memories and old dreams of a childhood infused with 8-bit culture and sound, you can hear that very well in tracks 5 and 20, also my favourites.

Alek Darson - Panopticon

Ultimate progressive metal shred by Alek Darson from Belgrade, composer, audio engineer, producer and guitar virtuoso. You will hear that immediately when you press play. Powerful sound !

An there's even one of my pals playing in it, that's to say...
