068: Epic Intensity & Kompakt Total 16

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblr

I’m calling this set Epic Intensity because, this set truly kicked my own ass as I was broadcasting it.  Speaking of which, this version is straight music, with no talking over by me.  I’ll probably post an addendum to this which will be the same set but with my voice-over.

The episode also nominally features several new releases, the most notable of which is Kompakt: Total 16.

In episode 59 of the Mongoland Podcast I feature a plethora of Tech House Tunes.  In particular, I feature two Tech House compiliations from the German label, Tretmuehle.  The first of these is collection entitled, Tanzweise 019.  (Tanzweise is German for “Dance Tunes”).  The second compilation is entitled, Electronic Nature Vol. 13 – Aesthetic Tech-House Tracks!   Nine of the twelve Tech House tracks in this mix come from these two sources.

But there’s much, much more in this mix.  I also feature (more…)

057: May ’16 Review and Mike Griego

May ’16 Review and Mike Griego

In this episode I conduct a review of the best tracks released in May of 2016.  I also feature the debut release on microCastle from Mike Griego, an Argentinian producer.  I play the original version of the title track, Idioglossia in Set 3, and the Bog Remix of that track in Set 2.  May ’16 Review and Mike Griego

The title track ‘Idioglossia’ quickly builds a really unique, distinctive groove, with rich percussive elements meeting a catchy little hook and a pulsing bassline, and Mike Griego weaves in even subtler melodies as the track heads into the trippy, abstract breakdown, which sets a powerful, head-spinning second half. The remix of ‘Idioglossia’ comes from Bedrock’s BOg,... His version of the track borrows the warmth from Mike Griego’s original, while transforming the vibe with restrained percussion, sparse but heavy bass tones, and shimmering, layered rippling melodies, and distinctive vocal samples. The middle sequence throws in some dreamier synths, which add additional texture as the remix its lovely finale.

A new microCastle release is always worth hearing, and Mike Griego delivers the goods here as he always does. The highlight for my money, though, is BOg’s delightful remix of ‘Idioglossia’, which will further cement his reputation amongst fans of melodic and intelligent music sitting on the boundary between progressive house and techno.

The rest of the show is dominated evenly by Techno, Deep House, and Chill Out tracks.

055: Homemade Weapons & Red Army, Kenneth James Gibson

In this episode I feature brand new music from Homemade Weapons & Red Army, as well as Kenneth James Gibson.

In August of 2015 Homemade Weapons released the Clarion Call album, featuring 8 incredible tracks of Drum & Bass.  The title track from that release was featured in Episode 25 of the Mongoland Podcast, though the entire album was a worthy effort.  In February of this year this Seattle based producer released a 4 track EP which escaped my notice until now.  That oversight will be rectified shortly.  Meanwhile, on April 29 of this year, Homemade Weapons teamed up with Sacramento based producer, Red Army for the release of the Sleep Terror EP, another 4 track release.    Three of those four tracks are featured in the first set of this week’s episode.

ResidentAdvisor.net said of the Sleep Terror EP collaboration,

Where Homemade Weapons prefers his beats clean and contoured, Red Army likes to embellish them with big pools of reverb and dramatic chords. The result is drum & bass that feels perfectly sculpted and mysterious.They tease out exactly what can make drum & bass’s utilitarian repetition enticing instead of numbing, which is a good way to describe what Samurai Music does as a whole. Records like Sleep Terror likely won’t grab fans of Samurai’s more esoteric leanings, but it’s not meant for them—this is pure drum & bass of the highest order.
