• Yamaneko – Pixel Wave Embrace LP – Aquatic Grime

    November 24, 2014 Ben

    Nothing gets my nostalgia flowing like water level soundtracks. As the new age serenity of “Dire, Dire Docks” and “Aquatic Ambiance” laid the groundwork for all my future electronic dalliances, it’s no surprise the subaquatic soundscapes of Yamaneko take me somewhere special.

  • Commodo ft. JME – “Shift” is out now on DEEP MEDi (+ Bonus Slowed Version)

    November 19, 2014 Ben

    Commodo. JME. DEEP MEDi. Just seeing those three names together is enough to get me all hot and bothered.

  • PEGA5U5 – The Flock

    November 12, 2014 zac

    Back when I was originally discovering bass music, one of the first releases that really grabbed my attention was Mr. Rogers’ Ooze System. I was enamored by the unique blend of silly carnival sounds and psychedelic glitchyness.
