Khidja – Pinnacles
Simplicity is what we love about Khidja. Khidja’s groove is like magic beautiful by itself, they just defends it through the track.
Our old favourite Pinnacles.
Vox Low – Vox Low
Vox Low have that cohesion in sound, between the music and the vocals and lyrics for the present moment which we like.
No.1 contemporary band.
Anastasia – Pass over
Byzantine approach with folklore instruments from Macedonia to music gets us. Goran Trajkoski brings psalms very mysticaly, his approach to art is mistical by itself. All time favourite.
Autarkic – Rotation Rotation (Red Axes Remix)
Guys from Tel Aviv have clean and minimalistic sound which we like in contemporary electronic music. Autarkic’s ‘rotation rotation’ is greater than the musical.
Marvin & Guy – The Train Of Fantasic (Fantastic Twins One More Ride)
Fantastic Twins makes you feel like you are in quantum space. We like her voice.
Jacek Sienkiewicz – Drifting
Old times favourite artist. So rhythmic grooves and flow background, sounds so underground.
Tubeway Army / Gary Numan – Are ‘Friends’ Electric?
We think it’s natural to fit in older generations of your style. So progressive synths and sound for 70’s. It’s remixed and used from artists over and over.
Curses feat. Jennifer Cardini – Silence In The Dark
Actually, we grew up with a lot of bands and garage sound, playing guitars… we recognize that in this song. It sounds so ‘Ombra International’
Rhytch – Nasty
The title speaks best. It’s a room listening song somehow. We actually uplouded the song on ‘youtube’, so we could use it for ‘back to mine’ 🙂
Alex Under – Lolog
So compact sounds fitting together like fluid, bassy synths very lovable.
BarumBarum – Ritual (Sinchi Music)
For their 2nd release, the not for profit Sinchi Music will be donating all proceeds to their Sinchi Foundation which supports indigenous peoples’ rights and the preservation of their culture and knowledge. Here they feature a trio of duos, with an original single from newcomers BarumBarum and remixes from acclaimed artists Khidja and SHMLSS. Andreja Salpe and Filip Polski hail from Macedonia and have worked together as BarumBarum since 2017. They create music which is heavily influenced by different cultures and formed with synths, guitars, bass guitar, tamboura, harmonica and more to create their unique sound.
Their brilliantly original single ‘Ritual’ is a broody bit of rumbling dark disco with eerie guitar licks ringing out through the rumbling drums. It’s filled with analogue textures and is the sort of rugged cut to really standout in a set. Romanian duo Khidja have released on a host of major international labels including DFA, Hivern and Especial amongst others. They bring plenty of warped bass and heavy, chugging drums to their remix, which is spacious and absorbing throughout. Finally, long time Sinchi friends SHMLSS who run the Amsterdam XXX label, expertly rework the original with mechanical grooves that are stomping and stark, with metallic hits and gothic vocals, permeating through this most industrial disco groover.
