V/A :: Fields (Kahvi Collective)

Continuing to unwrap streams of mind-boggling musical detail across several electronic music genres, Fields is a sonic smorgasbord that doesn’t let up. It goes without question that 2016 yielded, at least for me, an abundance of prime, large-scale compilations—Crazy 10 Years A/V, Sectioned v6.0, Frequencies Of The Mind III, Silicate Recursions, and Touched 3—to name a few. One […]

DECIBEL FESTIVAL 2015 :: In-depth coverage & visual archive

At this event the music itself matters, and audiences would rather hear Autechre’s complex and aggressive IDM in a blacked-out club than cringe at Steve Aoki’s new Celine Dion remix or Skrillex and Diplo’s latest collaboration with Justin Bieber (yes, these are actual things that unfortunately happen in real life at other festivals). Here are […]

Chad Mossholder :: Non-Site Specific (Artificial Music Machine)

The minimalistic take on IDM here is, if anything, a frank reminder of the power of subtlety and a delight to the ears at the same time. Chad Mossholder’s Non-Site Specific is an icy take on a genre that thrives on cold abstraction. Coming from Artificial Music Machine, the second half of Twine (BiP_HOp, Ghostly […]

Touched Two :: Mega Cancer Benefit Compilation out November 28 (Touched Music)

What is particular about Touched Two is that so many artists came together to compose new material for the compilation. Certainly, while many other similar efforts often do the same, this compilation also showcases new and upcoming producers. It’s pretty usual for pop artists to band together in order to contribute to a cause; enter […]

Carbo Flex :: Trifolium (Central Processing Unit)

Music has always been a great source for the rose tinted glasses and the latest on Central Processing Unit got the sentimental juices flowing something serious. I’m a fierce nostalgic man. Irish sense of “fierce” there, substitute “very” if ya like; trying to get across that I’m not some wild man harking for the days […]

V/A :: Friendly Integration V2 (Detroit Underground)

A couple dozen tracks sees the forward thinking audio-art boutique that is Detroit Underground pushing ahead Volume 2 in the Friendly Integration series. A well-balanced display with a range of motion keeps DetUnd’s Friendly Integration V2 cross-pollinating fluid electrical mixtures and skewed sonic calibration. Perhaps best absorbed as broken data bits combining an abundance of phases, […]

Richard Devine :: Risp EP (Detroit Underground)

Music which has all but the rudimentary ties to humanity stripped out of it. The machines have a dialogue and language all of their own and Mr. Devine speaks it well. Richard Devine‘s Risp is machine music. Music which has all but the rudimentary ties to humanity stripped out of it. The machines have a […]

MOVEMENT 2011 :: Detroit, Michigan

Movement had a staggering lineup up of some of the biggest DJ’s and live acts spread across five different stages in Hart Plaza.
