donthink: Classick #57

Saturday, December 24th, 2011 by Kyle
Cleaning barn stalls on the farm is often accompanied by my Uncle’s radio playing AM stations, and fresh sounds from generations passed inspired me to make a mix where current electronic trends resemble classic gems. Open your ears to 60’s pop, swinging electric beats, deep rumbling jazz, hazy noir, retro boogie, school band funk, swanky smooth sensations, robotic soul, and a safe moon landing. 2002 ErrorFM

Anchorsong

Thursday, December 8th, 2011 by Sjoerd

Electronic // Thrill // Chill

Anchorsong has a way with the MPC, as you can see in the above video. This Tokyo export shipped to London in 2007 and has ever since been building a live reputation, being famed for energetic shows. Masaaka Yoshida’s records are as dynamic and energetic as his live performances, with sounds found in lounge music combined with organic soulful layers from various genres and vibrant pulsating rhythms. Having released three EP’s in Japan and one international EP on his own label, the debut album Chapters is out now, from which I recommend the moody sway of ‘Plum Rain’ and the bold rhythm of ‘At the Hyatt’.

Japanese quirky & thrilling approach to electronic music.

Sahy Uhns

instrumental hip-hop // idm

The music of LA native Sahy Uhns a.k.a. Carl Madison Burgin is a unique blend of West Coast hip-hop, IDM and ambient influenced soundscapes, all topped off with some glitchy beats, organic rhythms and obscure psychedelic beauty. The opening track, a personal favorite, of his recently released album An Intolerant Disdain of Underlings (2011), “Montebello Postpartum”, delivers a dreamy ambient vibe and a gentle midtempo beat. “Anticipation Of The Night, which is named after a 1958 film by Stan Brakhage, showcases Sahy Uhns’ outstanding sound design skills.

Mesmerizing sound collage.

Alabama Shakes

southern rock // soul

Southern rock bursting with soul! Alabama Shakes amplify my love for music. Their powerful groove and vigorous energy makes me a little less sad about great 60’s acts I was born too late to see live. Janis Joplin meets Nina Simone rocking out with The Black Keys shedding gleams of hope to shake loose dusty spirits.

Turn it up.

LeaLea Jones

soul // soft r&b

The transatlantic success of British retro-soul singers is nothing new. From Amy Winehouse to Adele, British female artists have been strongly dominating the musical landscape for nearly a decade. LeaLea Jones delivers that kind of British retro-charm with an über-cool beat that brings to mind such Aurgasm favourites as Anjulie and Corinne Bailey Rae. She first captured my attention back in 2010 with her catchy single “Cake” and is currently working on her debut album. “Dry”, taken from the upcoming album, might be some of the finest urban grooves I’ve been listening to lately, offering some solid yet not overly produced beats and sweet soul vocals.

Sultry doze of neo-soul, jazz and R&B.

LeaLea Jones – Dry
