Igloo Magazine :: Best of 2016

While other sites might fight to get 1000s down to 50 or 20, at Igloo HQ we’ve refused to don the hair shirt of reducing respective contributor lists to a consensual singularity, in favour of doing justice to diversity via lists that range far and wide, and a congruent preference for letting their multiplicity simply […]

Blochemy :: Da Mear (Clean Error / Sun Sea Sky)

Blochemy crafts a tranquil and retrospective sonic collection that also reveals distant turbulent experiments continuing to spotlight the past while resting itself firmly in the now. In 2013 we covered Adreom released on Clean Error described as exuding “…the perfect intersection between Tri Repetae-era Autechre and Atol Scrap-era Arovane.” Fast-forward to 2016 and we see the […]

Mike Allen :: Juxt (Sun Sea Sky)

A lot of what’s heard in Juxt is the pulsing thump of a kick drum, atmospheric synths and that sequenced ‘clickty-clickty-clickty’ percussive noise, which clicks along on Reznor & Atticus Ross OSTs urgently. Allen sings and wails over his record with a distorted filter placed on his voice, squashing his vocal into a tight box […]

Boc Scadet :: Nightfall in Gentle Waters (Sun Sea Sky)

An exercise in what could have been—in a sense, perhaps a fitting conclusion to the Boc Scadet project itself. Boc Scadet is Lawrence Grover’s best-known alias, under which he released two previous albums and two EP’s through the mid-2000s. Nightfall in Gentle Waters, the third and final entry in Boc Scadet’s arc, was previously only available […]

Melorman :: Waves (Sun Sea Sky)

Waves should bubble to the top of your playlist if you need a late-night soundtrack for your candle-lit gathering of Instagramming friends or spend long hours with headphones on and require an inoffensive, continuous soundtrack of trip-hoppy beats and euphonious melodies. Continuing my relationship with the Illinois-based record Label SunSeaSky, which began with a review […]

Northcape :: Exploration and Ascent (Sun Sea Sky)

Northcape raised his sights beyond the realm of cultural plundering so there are no Tibetan/Nepalese samples or “world music” modal influences in evidence. Instead, the tracks aspire to capture timeless characteristics of the Himalayas and high, mountainous, (strangely?) isolated places more generally. Since 1999, Charleston Illinois-based Sun Sea Sky Productions has been quietly releasing independent […]

Northcape :: Captured From Static (Sun Sea Sky)

(September 2010) Northcape hail from Brighton U.K, producing a blend of music largely consisting of gentle waves of ambient and luminous electronica. In the main, Northcape fuses its regular themes of chilled out synth layers, offset along side energizing basslines and beats. There’s some dramatic contrast – take “Shnkansen To Kyoto” as a fine example, […]
