Aphex Twin – Blackbox Life Recorder 21f / in a room7 F760

This is a very nice IDM record. Other than that, my relationship to this is quite neutral, and saying that as a long time Aphex Twin fan. It just doesn’t have any specificity to this time and place, and it also doesn’t invoke memories strongly enough so it would be clearly on the nostalgia side. It’s like the B sides collection of records from twenty years back. It’s… fine.

Modeselektor – Extended

Electronic music on the bass side and with lots of flow and power to it. Based on the most recent Moderat and Modeselektor records, my take is that the Moderat project was great for two records but it should be left behind to shine from the past and Modeselektor should rather do what’s really their thing. This record is as awesome as any other Modeselektor output, instantly wanting to hear them play live and rock the roof off.

lynyn – lexicon

Glitchy IDM with nice melodies. Sounds very old school for a record in 2022, but also brings me back to a great era of rhythmic experimental music. It could have been a major Warp release.

Significant Other – Club Aura

I really don’t know how to categorize this genrewise, so when I saw on Bandcamp the label “leftfield” I jumped, yes, that! I honestly don’t care about the tracks for the most part, but Drum Therapy just had to be saved somewhere for future reference, that’s an amazing beat. I ended up adding it to my wierd house playlist. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
