Taking cues from the likes of Joker and Clams Casino, Mindelixir segues oddly delicate melodies in juxtaposition against bravado vocal stabs and the boom / snap of the 808. Lunology finds North Carolina based producer Bill Schimel (aka Mindelixir) serving up an enticing combination of slo-mo melodic trap versus sci-fi R&B—perfect for pool side lounging […]

Scanone :: Gangsta Riddim EP (Outside)

Slabs of robotic electro slide across the grooves of this record as it illustrates subdued fury in a 20-minute escape through time. Hype; while in most cases is focused on overly saturating the market with ploys to sway its audience comes across as aggressive or ill-conceived most of the time. In the case of Scanone’s […]

ADJ :: Beats, Blips & Other Dimensions (Shameless Toady)

ADJ’s focus on pure, unadulterated electro sets the bar a little higher than usual as it maneuvers its way across layers of analog-synth tones, emotive pulses, hypnotic waveforms and roughened, head-bobbing experimentation.
