This Week I Have Been Mostly Listening To....

My mood has been dark this week. Maybe it's the weather, maybe it's work. These tunes have complemented my state of mind. The Burial album is the sound of urban isolation, echos in subway underpasses. The warm glow of a halogen street lamp.

Burial - Distant Lights // Hyperdubs

Heartthrob - Baby Kate (Sascha Funke Remix) // Minus

This mix by Sascha Funke of Heartthrob is totally hypnotising. It's a dubbed out reworking which which will have you lost in the bassline and cycling synth lines. One of the best Techno records so far this year.

OST & Kjex - How Not To Be A Biscuit // Crosstown Rebels

Elektrochemie - Muck Star (Original Mix) // Get Physical

On a more dancefloor oriented tip here are a couple of tunes that are uplifting yet retain dark undercurrents. OST & Kjex released this mesmerising tune late last year that has synth elements of 'The Sky Was Pink' (yet another one) but still retains its originality and is a progression of the sound.
Mucky Star is the brand new track by Elektrochemie who were responsible for last year's Your My Kind! which utilised the vocal talents of Caitlin Devlin alongside the production work of Thomas Schumacher and one Stephan Bodzin, the man responsible for the Rekorder series and also a big fan of the production style seen on the OST & Kjex tracks, check Rekorder 5.1 and 7.1 to see what I mean. The vocal on this reminds me of Roisin Murphy of Moloko.

If you are down at Cafe 1001 Tomorrow night you may just here me play some of these out.

Buy all these records at Beatport and Boomkat

I'm with you on that - the Burial album is a dark one, it's north london skunk and the housing estates....lovely. Probably good to be used as a film score.
been trying to track spot those two electrochemie tracks for ages after i heard em on a Schumacher mix, doh! Thought they were Roisin too. Dark dirty, with suitably trashy vocals.
