Bioscape - Living Connection

Until now, I had never heard anything about Andrew Dyche, aka Bioscape, and just when the time was right and my ears ready to be soothed, I wandered a bit on Ektoplazm in the Psydub section, I found myself listening to this album, and soon I was completely overwhelmed with delight, sorry if I always exaggerate but it is for a good cause. An atmosphere like a tropical forest, perfectly blended instrumentals. Very soft, soothing, harmonious, a real neural massage.

Interesting fact, Bioscape is produced by the Gliese 581c netlabel , on which I have already discovered some really amazing artists such as HelixNebula or Globular, so there is a good chance that there still is some incredible pearl of music to be found there... Oh, and thanks to Ektoplazm for the music they share, and for their extra-efficient sharing on their Youtube Channel.

Yeah I know, there are a lot of links to be clicked on in this article, isn't it marvelous ?

Edit : yes it is marvelous indeed, all those links, except the download link ! Sorry, I always forget, here it is : Bioscape - Living Connection on Ektoplazm

Boogie Belgique - Nightwalker Vol. 2

Slowly, let's go slow, an album per week, giving you time to enjoy every bits and pieces of it, sometimes more, sometimes less. Boogie Belgique always stays very good. Haven't seen them live yet, but that won't be long I think, seeing how they are becoming more famous and making more and more concerts, lives and DJ sets. Swingy chill to download at Dusted Wax Kingdom, one of the best Netlabels I have heard of yet.

X-Ray Zebras - Raw Beat

Four tracks of pure groove from the québecois X-Ray Zebras, the first album of whom is by the way an aural earthquake to discover. We'll talk about it later. Let this small step for man be a reminder of what is to come. A tender mix of electronic music, instrumental gimmicks and hip-hop. To be listened.

Wax Triptych - A Tale of 3 Heads

Wax Triptych, a brilliant trio featuring Jenova 7 (USA), Mononome (Greece) and Mr Moods (Canada). Beautiful musical pearls to be found here, in a dusted wax jazzifying atmosphere. Even if some of these tracks are close to becoming clichés of urban chill (almost hipster) music, those three heads still represent some of the very best of what the free trip-hop scene has to offer.
