Drop Logik :: Phase Lift EP (Plastic Sound Supply)

Nestled between cohesive electronics, hip-hop, glitch, jazz and bass lies this vaporous extended player making its way into a meandering calm stream. Magnetic waves spinning through patches of space, Drop Logik (aka Colorado’s Chad Dixon) delivers dub-slivered glitch and downbeat groove slabs on the Phase Lift EP. A silky smooth and acrobatic rhythmic tone shimmies […]

Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens :: JWS (Self-Released)

Disjointed data slivers, fractured melodic breezes, microscopic chants, rhythmic mechanics, weaving low-end glitch, modular buzzing, broken beats and crumpled downtempo all seem to converge on this self-titled sonic smorgasbord.

Iuengliss :: Down Cosm (Plastic Sound Supply)

The main body of Down Cosm considered as a six-track snapshot of the state of Iuengliss’ art presents an impressively skilled and diverse picture. As an taste of what Iuengliss has in store for the future, it’s even more tantalizing. I first encountered Iuengliss in the course of reviewing 2013’s Plastic Sound Supply Compilation Ultrasoft […]

V/A :: Ultrasoft! Anthems 33 (Plastic Sound Supply)

A well-rounded mix of familiar names and new-to-me artists whose entries on this compilation inspired me to dive into their back catalogs… Despite the unusually-punctuated title and playful promo site, styled like a 1980s late-night TV ad, there’s nothing cheesy about Ultrasoft! Anthems 33, Plastic Sound Supply‘s 20th release. Instead of the pan-flute serenades the […]

Building on a tradition of genre-defying output and continual reinvention, the collective rests gently underneath the umbrella of ambient music at this moment in time. “Are you tired of the same old music? Well we’ve got something for you!” Plastic Sound Supply celebrates its 20th release by continuing a tradition of conceptual label compilations for […]

Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens :: The Holy Dogs of Other Days (Plastic Sound Supply)

Perhaps best suited for long road-trips along the coastline, fuzzy basslines, scorched guitars and sizzling melodic bursts appear from every angle and an acoustic funk emanates from the edges. Secret Frequency Crew, Boards Of Canada, Four Tet and even Genaro come to mind when tuning into Jeffrey Wentworh Stevens’ latest for Colorado’s Plastic Sound Supply. Tranquilized analogous […]

Brim Liski :: The Repetitions EP (Plastic Sound Supply)

Yielding a flow similar to the classic sounds of Ulrich Schnauss, Four Tet and even Christian Kleine, Brim Liski dusts off the nostalgia and reveals a hidden gem filled with instrumental viscosity.

Sean Byrd :: Always Was (Plastic Sound Supply)

The emotional swells and transitions Byrd builds into his tracks sometimes lead to moments of pure transcendence, too, as on the album’s aptly-titled closer “Something That Pulls,” where a buzzing, churning bass tone fights, counters, and ultimately yields to a high, harp-like melody. The announcement for Sean Byrd‘s new album Always Was immediately caught my […]

Five questions for Plastic Sound Supply

It may surprise people elsewhere, but Colorado (Denver, especially) has a vibrant and healthy music scene.” Igloo Magazine :: When did Plastic Sound Supply start up and what […]

C.DB.SN + Scaffolding :: Covalent States (Plastic Sound Supply)

Subdued percussive elements float alongside shimmering synth notes as melancholic deconstructs cast curious shadows on the current state of rhythm-inspired IDM explorations. [Release page] Fragile electrical currents reminiscent of Atol Scrap-era Arovane mixed with Soup-styled layers of Bola are featured on the latest EP from Denver, Colorado-based Plastic Sound Supply. Subdued percussive elements float alongside […]

Iuengliss :: Blank Matter (Plastic Sound Supply)

At its best, Blank Matter is still indebted to the musical legacy that spawned it. This is the eddy IDM has been for the last decade and will be in for the foreseeable future. But fortunately for Iuengliss, being indebted is not the same as being unimaginative, nor is it an artistic death sentence. Blank […]

V/A :: Experimental Dance Breaks 36 (Plastic Sound Supply)

Most of the songs on this compilation are at least grounded in dubstep. They crawl along at the familiar 2 speeds at once, one a clunking, simian crawl and one a hyperactive twitch. Dubstep’s influence is spreading faster than anyone can keep track. It’s merging with drum and bass in one direction, getting saccharine with […]
