I first heard of Ekoplekz stuff through that woebot blog, and then from a friend who was interested in synth experimentation, and finally actually heard stuff on a Mordant Music compilation. I think he codes a lot more as experimental/weird than as dub techno.

"deepchord clone" being an intriguing state since they're really kind of a flattened down version of a handful of basic channel tracks

and yet, and yet

naw i'm into dc/echospace/intrusion/et al but the list of epigonal derivatives is unending

basic channel is too elemental to listen to regularly, feel like they are more of a procrustean bed for this kind of stuff than sth to be enjoyed on their own for v long

i never get tired of this

have you ever gotten into the silent season stuff? I haven't really, yet, but heard good things

mh, Tuesday, 31 March 2015 16:15 (three years ago) Permalink

i dl'ed and listened to a few segue releases a couple years ago and still listen to "pacifica" every now and then


he's since put out two more albums that i hadn't noticed prob bc i went about that long w/o a computer

they're doing some sort of showcase at this festival in boulder, colorado. thought about going. charles cohen also playing.

i am so shit abt following new releases, 2013 was pretty much the last year i was keeping up and completely fell off the wagon over the past year in favor of diving into artist discogs

clouds, Tuesday, 31 March 2015 19:16 (three years ago) Permalink

I keep up on nothing, I think my listening is pretty much concentrated on a few things, then I see some other things live and fall into those

mh, Tuesday, 31 March 2015 19:24 (three years ago) Permalink

I dont keep up with anything, only what i find in the woods

that remix of model 500 is ok nowhere near the original or maurizio mix

saer, Tuesday, 31 March 2015 19:33 (three years ago) Permalink

ok BUT nowhere near

saer, Tuesday, 31 March 2015 19:33 (three years ago) Permalink

i think the whole remix album is wonderful, maybe the best deepchord thing outside of the linkwood "miles away" remixes.

ekoplekz not my thing at all.. i'd be down to listen to some ilm-er curated best-of, though.

that elemental quality of basic channel is exactly what makes them so endlessly listenable

if if you want a good context for a bunch of basic channel, that Scion mix is still amazing

mh, Wednesday, 1 April 2015 01:16 (three years ago) Permalink

btw... stroboscopic artefacts ^_^

mh, Wednesday, 1 April 2015 01:38 (three years ago) Permalink

yeah that mix is fucking rad

i still haven't figured out what kevin drumm has to do w/ any of this

clouds, Wednesday, 1 April 2015 07:07 (three years ago) Permalink

dismal spooky ambience

i think i made myself allergic to drone stuff with too many all-night essay writing jags being soundtracked by it

New Ekoplekz is kinda early-IDM sounding and I'm finding it less interesting tbh. Bring back lo-fi retrofuturisms.

Digging this though


"Charity" sounds like a low-tech 1980 remix of a Cabaret Voltaire song from 2x45.

spamming the board, but i'm excited about this show

This new Michael Vallera record kinda sounds like outtakes from Seefeel's "Succour" with the tempo dialed way, way down:

Raime's new album is very good. It's by no means dance music but it reminds me a lot of the most stripped back dread UK dance tracks of the last 25 years

paolo, Tuesday, 28 June 2016 20:17 (two years ago) Permalink

Artists like D1, Jon E Cash, Shackleton etc

I wasn't incredibly into it but saw them live, loud, and it grew on me

New Kaumwald EP is pretty cool, definitely Opal Tapes-appropriate (scudding beats, uneasy ambiance, lots of subtle weird touches you only notice on headphones)

Jason Lescalleet - Autumn Leaves (October 2014)

listening to actual kevin drumm while at work and it's helping me tune out distractions

mh 😏, Tuesday, 18 October 2016 15:29 (two years ago) Permalink

luv 2 drone

mh 😏, Tuesday, 18 October 2016 15:30 (two years ago) Permalink


streaming off of that Lescalleet track, another thing that reminds me of "This Foundry"

braunld (Lowell N. Behold'n), Tuesday, 18 October 2016 17:03 (two years ago) Permalink

so, how about this Grebenstein release?

mh 😏, Tuesday, 1 November 2016 14:37 (two years ago) Permalink

I like Grebenstein. I'm not too sure about this new Raime, though, it sounds like a tribute to Photek circa The Hidden Camera. In fact it just makes me want to listen to The Hidden Camera.

i've been loving the raime album so much this winter (after initially dismissing it). play it almost every morning

lex pretend, Wednesday, 14 December 2016 09:05 (two years ago) Permalink

It's one of those albums where every track sounds the same but in a good way

paolo, Wednesday, 14 December 2016 09:17 (two years ago) Permalink

I loved the EPs & Quarter Turn to distraction, but somehow didn't engage with Tooth. I need to go back to it.

I think I posted this Rorqual album on another thread, but it's probably worth sharing here for it's creeping, oozy ambience with occasional leaden beats.


It kind of reminds me of the electronic stuff on Sigma Editions (Parmentier and Minit specifically) through a darker lens.

this Contort Yourself label is really cool, lots of bangin industrial techno


brimstead, Thursday, 9 November 2017 02:43 (one year ago) Permalink

i really like this Finding The Floor album by Profligate from a few years back.. moody industrial stuff


brimstead, Thursday, 9 November 2017 02:47 (one year ago) Permalink

New Kevin Drumm album is also very nice. https://kevindrumm.bandcamp.com/album/october-early-warning

Federico Boswarlos, Thursday, 9 November 2017 20:38 (one year ago) Permalink

i really want that new contort yourself 80's tape comp! but i can't be buying stuff right now. worth it just for this track alone:

this tv show on TNT, Good Behavior, keeps using Raime music as ominous soundtrack music and it’s passed cognitive dissonance into nodding to dark grooves

Listening to old Hecate EPs and when she wasn't going 300 bpm breakcore she kinda had a proto-this-thread thing happening. On "The Payback" w/Kareem the track "Medusal" has that clanging drums and dubby reverb thing happening.

man I should read my posts before I click it looks like I know six words

There's a lot of stuff on Kareem's Zhark label worth checking out, actually, if you like crunchy beats, dark ambient or harder industrial techno.
