Rory Caraher from Mutate’s Best of 2017

In Blog by rabbleLeave a Comment

Jon Hussey – Dark Motif (RLSD) Jon Hussey’s well-overdue vinyl debut, broken meandering acid with a really nice thick atmosphere. Dublin’s own RLSD pressing more great stuff. Schacke – Future Not Materialized (Ectotherm) Some subtler techno rhythms at a proper boshing tempo with lovely soft melodies and a bittersweet mood. A great cross between a few different buzzes, released on Mama Snake and Courtey’s label Ectotherm. Stanislav Tolkachev – Yes, … Read More

Objekt – Theme From Q (Objekt) Ooof. This shouldn’t work. 90s synths and Think breaks. It’s been done to death. But good God Objekt made it work. Track of the year from the moment I heard it. Telephones – DTMF (Call Super Remix) (Running Back) I loved the original but now I can’t listen to it. Call Super took its key elements and gave it a sick beat, teased it … Read More

Holler’s Best Of 2017

In Blog by rabbleLeave a Comment

Reddy: Way too chaotic in our approach to tunes to do this with any sense of due diligence. So, the pair of us decided to split things up and use a simple rule, it had to have been aired on the show and as long as it was new to us, then that was fine too. Touch Absence – Lanark Artefax (Whities) Beardy: Lanark takes familiar sounds but instead of … Read More

  Wino Wagon – Teen Romp Hoe Down – Absolutely Wino (Wah Wah Wino) “We’re leaving school / I’ll miss my friends / we partied hard / but now its the end”. Very gas number from the Absolutely Wino Comp. RA described it as a “boozy ode to camaraderie”, right up the Bukeepsie alley. Davy Kehoe – Short Passing Game -Short Passing Game (Wah Wah Wino) Another one from the … Read More

Jon Teishi From Digital Garden’s Best of 2017

  Yves Tumor – Limerence (PAN) Just a beautiful track that conveys such loss and hope. Bibio – Phantom Brickworks 3 (WARP) A track that could easily stand next to anything on Select Ambient Works Vol Jlin – Calcination (Planet Mu) What an album! Calcination is probably the most sparse and chilled track on there. When the vocal samples kick in they never fail to give me chills. Bicep – … Read More

Eddie from TR One’s Best of 2017

  Regis – The Master Side EP (Blackest Ever Black) The sound design, the drum programming and the downright funk make this Regis stepper one of the best tracks this year. Equiknoxx – Congo Get Slap/Flagged Up (Mark Ernestus Mixes) (DDS) Mark Ernestus crafts these Equiknoxx tracks into a rhythm and sound of unique proposition. You will get lost in both these tracks. Calibre – Lit (Signature) By what I … Read More

  Davy Kehoe, Short Passing Game (Wah Wah Wino) I couldn’t believe that a man called Davy Kehoe would pass up the opportunity to name his debut album “Says Hello” and I also could not really believe my ears when I heard this record first. It’s such wild music, and I guess it could sound quite abrasive, but knowing Davy a bit better now I think it’s probably more a … Read More

As usual, reissues and unearthed obscurities take up a lot of listening bandwidth but these are top of the class for Just A Blip in 2017. Ellen Arkbro – For Organ and Brass (Subtext Recordings) Meditative drones inna meantone temperament stylee. A+. Visible Cloaks – Terrazzo (Ft. Motion Graphics). (RVNG Intl.) Opened a door to the Fourth World and now I can’t find my way back. Lord of the Isles … Read More

Platinum Ray from HeatWerk’s Best of 2017

Juju & Jordash – L-Motion (DKMNTL) Somehow Juju & Jordash have surpassed themselves with their last LP “Sis-boom-bah!” That’s no mean feat given the strength of their back catalogue. I chose this track L-Motion off the album as it’s the perfect track for an opening set. It’s 4/4 pulse will sound nice and spacey in the club, but the detail in the production and stoney sounding elements means it’s a … Read More

The season of merriment is upon us. Groan off those three day hangovers and prepare yourself for later. Two daycent parties to fast forward yourself through to tomorrow. First up, it’s the Out To Lunch gang with wonder kid Luca Lozano. Expect nods to lush bleep and bass, and “nod nod wink wink” ravey references. Been looking forwards to this one for a while now. Calling All Dancers and King … Read More
