seasonal drama

merry xxxmas. the shortest day and a menstral moon mark the end of a year of global slowdown. a screwtape for you and you alone. words from tom mccarthy whose new book is fattening stockings even as this robot types. cross posted to DuttyArtz

deuces has the most mournful synth of the season. plus chris brown in terrifying break-up mode. detuned drama. kat and alfie provide the dialogue and slamming doors i’ve got a ton of screws ready to go. either to be released in a pavement-top trickle or wrapped in some kind of digital bow and given away for xmas. keep watching the skies.

what’s happening? carnival weekend in London. many raves, old ladies from osaka and the news from Putin’s holidays (he shot a whale with a crossbow). meantime a mix of some of this year’s soca. the operative word(s) is RoAdMiX…. forward!

they’re quite famous, they’re also quite good and they have a new record out. don’t know about you but this is the sort of thing i hear behind my eyes as i’m falling asleep. amplified and with a hint of todd. crystal castles.

suprisingly… techno. something about the vertigo of neverending repetition seems apt. the picture below is from shanghai. each building is at least 30 stories high. even if i’d included the rest of the image, you couldn’t see the floor.

the pre-drop of this tune is amazingly, wonderfully convoluted.

is0lée – a n1ghtingale

and a nice stripped back old one from robert hood about which not a great deal needs to be said, changes are to be watched.

robert hood – minus

this one is rootless hard drive spawn. but it may of come from here or something to do with there. produced by the many-tentacled Marc Acardipane. followed by another, pitched down version with some vocals from this scandinavian occora compilation.

the mover – visible space

the mover – visible space (wtc screw)

finally, a nice mix from SQUARED° of more usual things re-pitched into a techno blueprint. info here.
