Cosmoganic - Harness The SoupCosmoganic
Harness The Soup
Label: Swamp Music
Electronic music can flow in many directions, with some composers creating hybrids of earthy organics with spacey synthetics. Cosmoganic (aka Ollie Jackson) has formulated a delicious audio meal of squishy, creamy psydub atmospheres blessed with wandering whomps and happy harmonies spiced with tribal tendencies. Consider it an 8 course feast of musical treats for your ears to eat!• Cosmoganic Website • Cosmoganic Facebook
Earthcry - Modular Improvisation at Isis Music HallEarthcry
Modular Improvisation at Isis Music Hall
Earthcry is the brainchild of Asheville, NC based producer Anthony Thogmartin (also of Papadosio). This is the recording from his one off improvisational experimental performance on 11/11/17 utilizing modular synthesizers. The result is a flow of colorful cascading rhythms and drumscapes patched together with in the moment effects, looping and frequency blending. Another unique compositional approach with a prodigious end result!• Earthcry Website • Earthcry Facebook
Shpongle - Codex VIShpongle
Label: Twisted Records Ltd
Complex, layered and highly anticipated, this, their sixth full length release, is recognizable Shpongle at every musical turn and twist. Codex VI offers a wider range of styles and natures while exploring a more dramatic range of influences and output. That being said, great as it is, for me overall it didn’t reach the levels of mystical musical ecstasy offered by their prior releases.• Shpongle Website • Shpongle Facebook • Shpongle Wiki
