Genetically Modified Oscillations
Label: Gravitas Recordings

Heavily glitched electronica with an obtuse but foreseeable future concept angle. “The year is 2146. Due to genetic modifications made to commercial crops and animals at the turn of the millennium, there is widespread sexual compatibility between nearly all forms of life on planet Earth. New hybrid species are being discovered every day…” So if you are willing to go on an adventure and meet the Aardvartichoke, Caulilflowl, Asparagoose, or the increasingly rare Cucumbear, this is your chance!

Soulacybin
Gratitude
Label: Merkaba Music

Some music is meant as a journey. Other purely for enjoyment. Yet this one is designed to include an activation. A metaphysical activation for your heart to enhance beyond your ears and mind. The music to push the activation is a succulent dub swirl soundscape of glitch hop and soultronica with mystical blurs and psychedelic bends.

Lotus
Gilded Age
Label: Lotus Vibes Music LLC

Continuing to explore and develop new and old facets of their musical awareness, long time favorites Lotus give us a release focused on the original organic instruments: drum, bass, guitar, piano and percussion. Combined with the fact they recorded it live to analog tape means the sound is very front and center for the listener. Guest vocalist Steve Yutzy-Burkey is featured on this first of three tracks on the album, which also gives the release a fulfillment of another kind. The Gilded Age proves once again that the ethereal ambiance that Lotus is known for will continue unabated.

Great Mystery
Label: Desert Trax/Black Swan

Such a beautiful blending of the etheric and the electronic. This busy duo has traveled the world learning about the great mystery, only to gift their knowledge to listeners amid their downtempo dubtronica. Blissful beams of gratitude glide their music to new frontiers and even greater mysteries.

Label: Adapted Records

Once in a great while a compilation is more than a collection of songs. Occasionally it is replayable party mix of highly memorable artists that continually blow your mind. So it is with Melbourne Australia’s Adapted Records compilation of Glitch & Funk. This release shows off a reverberant selection of body moving funky bass crossed with uplifting vibes amid memorable electronic elicitations and breakdowns.

Label: Gravitas Recordings

Harvesting wonderful middle-eastern influences and spinning them into hypnotizing electronic driven compositions is what Austin based producer Govinda (aka Shane Madden) is a master at. Here he also incorporates a variety of live instruments and occasional vocals into the fluid mosaic mix of glitchy trance treats, creating an indelible delight for your senses.

Label: https://globular.bandcamp.com/

Multiple layers of ethnically influenced electronic psychedelic exploration results in constant delights and discoveries even after numerous listens.  As for the title, a holobiont is defined as the host plus of all its microbial symbionts, including transient and stable members, which equates to us all being a holoboint on some level. But what does holoboint music sound like? Find out and be delighted!

Label: All Good Records

I hope you were expecting another bombastic trend setting release of saxophone driven electro funk from GRIZ, cause that’s what he’s spun up for you! Blasting bass and digital wizardry are cornerstones of his 13 track fourth LP, along with a smart smattering of great contributors. Be the love, share the love, and good WILL prevail!

Label: Cuss Records

Unclassifiable and ever morphing, this psychedelic stream of consciousness release will find fans in many nooks and crannies of surrealistic electronic experimentation. Not so much a soundtrack as a drive down a musical mystery theater of new discoveries. What new world will this take you to?

Label: Shanti Planti

Globe trotting New Zealand electronic producer Grouch (Oscar Allison) has tested and tried many styles and genres of music, but with Grouch in Dub he has really hit his stride. Harnessing a number of guest collaborators who inject everything from vocals, trumpet and clarinet to violin, sitar and bansuri to his psychedelic dub-tastic mixes, further accentuate his fluid approach, while also fulfilling his live performances.  A sublime offering filled with style and pizzazz.

One Time
Label: Self Released

What happens when invigorating electro swing gets infused with trap, house and future bass sounds? In such a space, a myriad of tempting time tried dance crazes fly together in an explosive experiment of sound and energy. This France-based duo further enhances the mix when vocalist and front-woman Nicolle Rochelle unleashes her talents. Irresistible! Appearing 7/14 & 7/15 at LaFete De Marquette.

See Without Eyes
Label: Glass Air

This Los Angeles trio of artists, Boreta, edIT, and Ooah have produced seminal elements of the electronic sonic experience since their beginnings in 2006. It has been 4 years since their last acclaimed release (their 2nd LP, Love Death Immortality, debuted #13 on Billboard 200 album chart and No. 1 on iTunes electronic chart). Driven now by their own label, Glass Air, their sound remains recognizable, but with a fair amount of experimental elements among their signature punctual electro synths and swollen bass lines. Showing off several great collaborators, including REZZ, Illenium, and Tula, the release has many facets to explore. I am excited to see them at The Sylvee in Madison, WI on 10/10!
