Aya released a gargantuan collection of unreleased LOFT dubs, many of which I remember from mixes. Took me days to properly digest and there's just an astonishing amount of creativity and skill here, and I like some of these tracks even better than the released work.

And I love the opening drum track on the bergsonist record, the whole thing is worth a listen though

New ramzi kicks ass, my fav reggaeton inspired dance stuff easily

Also kush Jones strictly for my cdjz series is worth a trawl through. Recommend track “I believe in space”

Sorry for no links, all on Spotify tho

Loving this Deena Abdelwahed EP, the 'Night in Tunisia' vocal coming in cracked me up for a second but I'm into it

fits better here than where I originally posted:

This came out in Dec '19 and really hits a sweet spot for me, straight-up club tracks that are just minimal and weird enough to keep it interesting

Not sure what to think of the Beatrice Dillon record yet. It seems studiously disinterested in sound design (although it's so dry that it probably sounds amazing on a loud system). I like the rigor of only using one bpm and having some strict limits on sounds & approach, but this will probably work better as one quirky track popping up in a mix vs a full album listen.

huh i like that album. good mix of electronic sounds and analog(-sounding) sounds

na (NA), Tuesday, 11 February 2020 15:55 (two weeks ago) link

it’s good! but a little academic. im old enough to remember when deconstructed meant lots of breaking glass sounds

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Tuesday, 11 February 2020 18:12 (two weeks ago) link

id say the Dillon is ‘electronica’ rather than ... the titular genre. for me, the latter is a descendant of a constellation of uk styles (weightless grime being a huge precursor) and sort of forges an experimental ethos from within the club tradition rather than foisting external experimental traditions into club (that’s electronica for me). im sure that distinction isn’t as tidy as that but it’s something ive been ruminating on. the fisherian “pulp modernist” slant to this inchoate genre is what i like about it

I like that. Also wow, I just read this today:
https://dotheastralplane.com/2020/02/12/all-that-is-solid-melts-into-business-techno/#more-11438

New modernist formulations are needed and dance music is rife with potential...In the next part of this essay, I’d like to dive further into music that represents a new, capacious modernism. Across several essays, the late Mark Fisher, elucidated a conception of a pulp modernism that embraces the grotesque, the weird and a “heteroglossic riot of styles and tones.” Fisher’s original essay referred to The Fall, but the ideas within can be applied to a far more dynamic range of contemporary music. More on that tomorrow.
