Music Monday – Series 04 [2010]

I can't believe its been nearly 2 months since my last post. I sincerely apologize. We have been wrapping up Front Mission Evolved at the studio and its been extremely busy! I hope to do a better job in keeping up with posting more Music as well as some new content ideas I've been thinking about doing since the site's inception. Hang tight and enjoy some of the new finds! -Chris Tesla Boy – Runaway Man Its been a long time since I've been this hooked on an EP.  The productions of Tesla Boy are simple, but STELLAR, and a throwback to the times of tape decks and neon lights. Love the drum programming, and the A-Ha esque vocals. Hailing [...]


Music Monday – Series 02/03 [2010]

Sorry for missing last weeks Music Monday. Its been bananas at the studio! Here's a pretty hefty selection this week to make up for it. Enjoy!! Tons of new content on the way as well. I promise. Ministries of Music (meets Paul Lomax) – Islands Lush…warm.. and sensual texture. Like a blushing cloud smiling at the sun. I'm a sucker for anything with a saxophone in it; add in some lovely major 7th chords, synth bass, and percussion and I'm on my way. Killer!! [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Jean F Cochois – Like a Poison Snake Taken from the newly released full length LP on label 'Listening Pearls'. Mr Cochois aka The Timewriter (Plastic City) always brings [...]


Music Monday – Series 01 [2010]

Port Royal – Balding Generation (Losing Hair Mix) Dont let being bald be the pre-requisite to liking this tune. Its really sick! Lush pads laced with beautiful arpeggios and a driving beat and bassline. Its drenched in nostalgia reminiscent of Information Society/Anything Box and its pure bliss! [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Sally Shapiro – Moonlight Dance Sally Shapiro’s smooth sexy voice rocks this tune… its playful.. its sexy.. and it cant help but make we want to pop in License to Drive and grow a mullet. [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Chymera – Sumatra Beautiful bangin detroit seduction. I cant help but be reminded of Tron listening to this…. would be a perfect backround track [...]


Music Monday – Series 12

Explosions in the Sky – Six Days at the Bottom of the Ocean Quite possibly one of my favorite Explosions in the Sky tracks of all time. I cant help but feel as though I’ve risen from the midst of adversity to conquer all obstacles when listening to this tune. Chills! Inspiration! [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Gate Zero – White Sands Pt 1 One of my favorite albums of 2006. Gate Zero Black Dust blew me away with its killer beat programming…lush ambiance..and pure and delicate synthetic melodies. [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Imax – Brush Park Classic 2001 LL Records. Sick dubbed out Detroit flava reminiscent of old Basic Channel. Not really made for [...]


Music Monday – Series 11

Jori Hulkkonen – Man From Earth ft. Jerry Valuri Taken from the amazing Jori Hulkkonen’s new Album titled ‘Man from Earth’ out on Turbo Recordings this week.  Fantastic retro vibe, beautiful strings, warm synth brass, and to top it all amazing vocals by Jerry Valuri. The entire album is sick. Check it out! [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Leon Somov – Kruopu Ft. Aurimas Rimeikis What can I say I’m a sucker for anything with horns in it. Pair that with some killer techy house grooves and I’m in line with my wallet. [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Lindstrøm & Christabelle – Baby Can’t Stop Lindstrom is on fire this year! The new LP alongside seductress [...]


Music Monday – Series 10

Stupidly busy week for me. 2 milestones due on 2 different projects. I have been putting together all of hte missing ‘Sound A Day’ posts… prepare soon for a massive posting of near 2 weeks of missing dailies. Bibio – Bones and Skulls Bibio never ceases to amaze me. New Album the Apple and the Tooth…incredible music… great remixes by the likes of Clark, Eskmo, and the Gentlemen Losers. What more could you want from this consistent talent. [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Fever Ray – Dry And Dusty Really love this tune. Reminds me quite a bit of ‘A Perfect Circle’ blue Remix. Same key… similar bassline. [Audio clip: view full post to listen] BlockHead – Attack [...]


Music Monday – Series 09

  Nicolas Makelberge – Clean City Taken from his amazing 2006 Album ‘Dying in Africa’.  The entire record is full of nostalgia, lush synth work,  and classic 80s vocals. The bassline gives me goosebumps! Madness! [Audio clip: view full post to listen] STL – Silent State (Re-Edit) Killer deep house tune. Thumpin Kick..Hypnotic Sonar Esque Percussion..Slow Build to a Beautiful Arpeggio. Really love this tune at the moment. Definitely track down the many other releases by  German Tech Genius Stephan Laubner. Silent State was released earlier this year on ‘Smallville Records’. [Audio clip: view full post to listen] White Rainbows – Monday Boogies Forward Forever Picked up the Red Clouds EP last week. Really diggin it! Only 4 tracks on [...]


Music Monday – Series 08

Phoenix – Fences (25 hrs a Day Remix) Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix has been really hot the last 3 months. Songs in ad placements all over the place. Fences has got to be one of my favorites, and the ’25 Hours a Day’ remix takes it to the next level. Catchy melody, lots of energy. Perfect track for the start of a new week. [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Mountains – Untitled (Etchings EP) Vinyl promo version of the Etchings EP. Not sure to the exact track title since its not written on the sleeve.. but this track is just sick. Really great vibe on this tune… make’s me feel like I’m taking  taking a helicopter ride over computer [...]

Music Monday – Series 07

Another busy week has passed! Tomorrow heading with the crew down to the MSPE 2009 Sound Show to see a presentation on the summer blockbuster : Star Trek. Should be really exciting… Reminds me that I need to call today to find out if I can possibly bring in a camcorder to document it. Regardless should be fun, exciting, and very educational. Washed Out – Olivia There seems to be a lo-fi analog craze lately. Though the recording quality of this record is pretty craptacular, I cant help but fall in love with it. Its extremely gritty…sounds like you rescued a tape submerged in maple syrup and only after careful drying in the hot sun you pop in the ghetto [...]

Music Monday – Series 06

Memory Tapes – Swimming Field I was first introduced to Memory Tapes about a month ago via Scott Hansen’s blog Even though it has already been posted before.. I had to. These tunes are just phenomenal. They remind me  a lot of  autumn in Chicago. Where the colors are changing.. leaves are filling the streets..and the cold is just around the corner. [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Memory Tapes – Run Out (Bonus) Last cut on the album but it was a definite stand out. Love the synth runs and guitar groove that kicks in about a minute in. Memory Tapes also love to use steel drums in their tunes, which add this really warm summer’s fading [...]
