For fans for instrumental electronica Check out the releases by Grey Area, Ulrich Schnauss, Choncey Langford, and Yoko Solo. They are all good in their own right . You canâ€™t go wrong with any of these
For something a little different, check out Soul Searching â€˜s (aka Michael Rutten) The Compost Radio Show; Various (Trevor Jackson, Pole, Richard Dorfmeister, & Trickski) I Like It (vol.2); and DJ Morpheusâ€˜ I Canâ€™t Live Without My Radio. These fall under the mixed compilation category. The tracks on each CD reflect the artistâ€™s (or DJâ€™s) personal taste. Michael Rutten takes the deeper, soulful route. DJ Morpheus (Samy Birnbach formerly of Minimal Compact) ventures into 80â€™s new wave. Lastly, Trevor Jackson, Pole, Richard Dorfmeister, & Trickskâ€™s tastes are more far reaching. After listening to Richard Dorfmeisterâ€™s selectons, give his Tosca release another visit. Hmmm,.
Out of this crop of releases, I am liking the Revolution 9, Morgan Page, and Twink releases. Yes Revolution 9 is back oh so soon with some more Depeche Mode sounding tracks. This is actually a good thing even though the real Depeche Modeâ€™s current release is in the rock shelf. Morgan Page showcass his recent crop of remixes. These are designed for dancefloor satisfaction. Of course his remix of â€˜Angelsâ€™ by Wax Poetic feat. Norah Jones is here – this is the track that notoriously put him on the map. Oiut of this compilation, I personally like his take on Teegan & Saraâ€™s â€˜Walking With A Ghostâ€™ and Anton Dvorakâ€™s â€˜Symphony #9â€™. Yes, Morgan makes classical music work on the dancefloor!
Listening to Ghislain Poirier, I guess it would fall under hip hop. However, the beats are more synthetic, a little more experimental. Call it blip hop? Whatever you call it, it still has a sort of bounce. There is even a track featuring guest MC dujour Beans – â€œCold As Hellâ€. However, the reps give this track an FCC warning. Anyway, there are plenty of other tracks to check out.
And lastly, I have to say I love Twink!. First of all this release is on Negativelandâ€™s Seeland label. Automatic cool cred right there. And second, it is an album of lovingly cut and pasted vintage childrenâ€™s records. Twinkâ€™s (aka Mike Langlie) previous releases usually feature him performing on toy instruments. This time, he digs into his collection of vintage childrenâ€™s recirds and splices together 21 tracks of mixed up goodness. If you are a fan of artists like Fatboy Slim, give Twink a listen!!! For some reason, this album gives me fond memories of going to Almacs with my mom way back when. You see, in the first aisle, they had a little rack of kiddie 45â€™s. Every so often we would leave with one. Perhaps this was a catalyst that set the direction of where I have been headed…
I guess this wraps things up for now. Stay tuned, I will be posting my year end revue shortly!
