Uncompromising hard-hit tech house. Melodic, yet noisy compositions.
Tech house to me sounds like the red wine of electronic dance music. Very tasteful, yet sometimes quite dry. But once after you have gotten used to that strange feeling on your tongue resp. eardrum, you must come back to it from time to time. If you need more, the mexican artist has archived their back catalogue on Bandcamp for our listening pleasure.

Meditative tech house. Long loops, straight beats, simple two-chord harmonies. Great background music.
This oldie from still active (as of 2018) Colombian netlabel Monofonicos mostly plays with sound texture. Both rhythm and harmony loop with only slight variations, while voicing, instruments and effects vary. The result is a meditative musical carpet. Continue reading “Qk –  415”

But please, don’t believe me and listen for yourself: Continue reading “Counterfly –  The Invisible Journey”
Recreational electronic beats. Unobtrusive chord patterns and subdued melodies.
Netlabel Discos Confort specialises in House music styles, featuring multiple artists and DJs. This release by Mexican DJ Bluevet is one of the more silent pieces. I wouldn’t call it ambient, but it does for some indie flavoured background music. Continue reading “Bluevet –  Believers”
Time for more space music this week! This release is part of a larger music donation I received from Machtdose; more details will follow in a later post. Back to the music: softly pulsing synthpads, minutes pass like seconds. Elaborate motives are used sparingly; not to draw to much attention to oneself. It is perfect soundtrack for working, coding, thinking. Continue reading “Jay Phonic –  Space Pictures”
