the weather is getting warm and perhaps inescapable. humid air retains smells for much longer. you can smell tobacco 10 metres away or the smoke being pumped out of the barbeque restaurant from down the road. here is a mix of odour from psychadelic bus a.k.a. hiroki murai from mokmal.

“The activity that centers on Tokyo and Toyama is being done now. Music is being produced now.”

“[Ostrich Mountain Square] is a kind of field recording. I was hanging out the mic of my window and record what happen on the street. That’s it. I love to play with sounds and technical devices. Always having a 4 to the floor drum makes me bored.”

“In his essay The City in the Age of Touristic Reproduction, Boris Groys traces the tourist back to Kant’s Critique of Judgement before aligning it with the view of a satellite. In the same essay he argues that the theme park is more primary: ‘[P]resent-day urban architecture has now begun to move faster than its viewers. This architecture is almost always already there before the tourists arrive. In the race between tourists and architecture it is now the tourist who loses. Although the tourist is annoyed to encounter the same architecture everywhere he goes, he is also amazed to see how successful a certain type of architecture has proved to be in a wide range of disparate cultural settings.’ The theme park arrives first, because it is finally immaterial; the power which it exerts is finally a virtual power. The power of the virtual.” from.

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.
