Tracky Birthday – Animal Audition

Awesomeness!

“… i need the internet like Whitney Houston needs crack … i love amateur homepages and dirt style design …”.
Regarding the last quote: Just visit Tracky Birthday’s website

His free downloadable album is about nerdcore, 8 bit hip hop and other, not categorizable styles…

Album was released on Upitup, another fine source for really independent music.

My favourite track of this album: Tracky Birthday – Websiiite

Sora – Live at Metro (IA 002)

Contemporary electronic jazz

The unique technique of subtile distortion of audio material of the Kyoto-based electronic musician Takeshi Kurosawa is terrficic. Sora “Live at Metro”, the second Relaese from Intervall-audio , is a mix of tracks from his groundbreaking first album ‘re:sort’ on Plop and unreleased material. Put it on your mp3 player, sit down at a empty beach, put your headphones on and dive into this opus of contemporary electronica.

Released on Intervall Audio:

Sora is the alias of Kyoto-based electronic musician Takeshi Kurosawa. The Japanese word sora (空) means ’sky’, ‘the blue’ or ‘the heavens’. But the Japanese character also means ‘empty’, and the tracks on Live at Metro indeed evoke the peacefully relaxing atmosphere and emptiness of mind that an entire day, from sunrise to sunset, of a summer holiday spent at the beach brings.

“We see the first rays of the morning sun flicker through the trees. The air, shimmering and blurred by the heat, gently touches the skin as we walk to the beach. We lie down in the sand’s tender warmth and take a nap full of dreams and faint memories, before swimming submersed in the joyful play of bubbles in a glistening sea. By late afternoon, we no longer hear but actually feel the breeze coming in from the sea. And the evening rejoices in the promise of sitting around a beach fire until the last melody disappears into the dark open night over the sea.

Live at Metro is a richly textured, playfully arranged, crisply analogue-sounding electronica opus that testifies to the fine taste of early Plop releases and defined the image and future direction of the label back in 2003. Live at Metro also demonstrates the exceptional talent of a young Japanese artist who, in 2006, played the Plop label showcase at the Sonar Festival in Barcelona as well as Sonar Sound Tokyo.

Originally recorded in 2003, Live at Metro features remixes from Sora’s first full-length album re.sort (Plop 2003), as well as hitherto unreleased material. The tracks are skilfully interwoven to form a continuous sound event and therefore are provided in one full-length gapless file for download. With Live at Metro Sora gives us a deeply satisfying 32 minutes of audio exploration that stays with us because it echoes a half-remembered state of bliss, perfect peace and innermost contentment.”

Blackdaylight – Live

The darker Chicago

Yet another Chicago artists with a very unique style of his own, Blackdaylight cooks up a deep dish of trip-hop grooves. Sonically heavy, Black’s infusion of gritty vocals and acoustic samples over a sort of 808 purism is cosmic-tribal. The live recordings have sometimes have a rough, raw sound, resulting in very warm and personal feel. It is “deep in the sheets” music – sensual, throbbing and grimy. And while there is certainly a fair amount of “daylight”, the larger portion of this album is dark and serious. Imagine yourself standing on a rooftop watching the city burn as tracks like Quicksand bang relentlessly. This is mood music – intoxicating.
