After a decade away, Xploding Plastix aka Jens Petter Nilsen and Hallvard Hagen are now very much back to their best and making thrilling and subversive sounds as they have always done. Early albums like their debut ‘Amateur Girlfriends Go Proskirt Agents’ on Beatservice Records marked them out for fans and critics alike and showcased their brilliantly beguiling blend of off-grid beats, futuristic melodies and cinematic sounds. Later moving into designing music for film, TV and computer games they have recently returned to underground electronic music and now make their biggest and best statement yet with the majestic full-length ‘This Is Accurate’. DMCWorld goes back to mine with Xploding Plastix.
Uziq – Hasty Boom Alert
A classic. Instant vibe with the lushy melodic synths and the sweet rampant drums.
Hasty Boom Alert
Squarepusher – My Sound
Love the slow build and the ecstatic release. Beautiful sounds.
Squarepusher - My Sound
Boards of Canada – Dawn Chorus
Perfect late night swirlyness. Sweet electonic drifts and tape wobble in a sauce of lazy laidback lushness.
Daniel Herskedal – The Mistral Noir
Sweet organic textures and a haunting, insisting melody.

Kammerflimmer Kollektief – Nactwache, 15. September
Atmospheric and acoustic, dark and intriguing.
Nachtwache, 15. September
Roger Eno – Tidescape
Brian’s less famous brother makes some beautiful organic ambient music. Hero origin music.
Ryuichi Sakamoto – Anger (rare Force 2 meg Mix by Robin Brunson )
Insisting and hard hitting. Villain origin music.

Erland Dahlen – Auto
A buddy of ours. Great drummer, great musician and an all-round sweet guy. His latest and best work to date. Kraut-like, dreamy with great attitude.
Two Fingers – Seesayer
Always loved Amon Tobin. Heavy groove with some aggro.

Kraftwerk – Computer Love
One of the bands that got us into electronic music. Always come back to them. Can forget about them for years, but somehow they always surface in our playlists after a while.
