chapter 40 – meticulous reenactment
a new week has started & as usual, it’s time for the routine. while part of us (in this case, the miss) is still enjoyin’ her vacation in south america, the other part (in this case, me the dude) is back to his usual spot in the morning: the college. some plans have to be made, some issues have to be solved, meanwhile i try to do the rest, e.g.: writing this article, read the thing about will.i.*censored* & the story about the ‘amen-break’, drink some water, write down some notes on some sketches, concepts, concepts, concepts. so, my concept for today is to finish off this terse intro, make a transition to the main part, listen to some good hotdogs of music, mention their creators, cancel the netflix-subscription, release the article, put the computer away & read, read, read until dusk. so, let’s tick off one thing from the to-do-list, the terse-intro. another tick on ‘transition’ – chap 40: here we go.
1.Myk – Lullabye
‘lullabye’ is the first song we’d like to talk about. created by the manchester-based future garage, ambient, electronic producer ‘myk’, the song has been part of a recently released extended play named ‘flevopark’ on the ‘left of fields’-record label. it has not been the first time that we heard about the name ‘myk’, the producer is known for previous releases on youtube-channels, such as ’17tumba’ or ‘mrsuicidesheep’. so, it is quite an honor for us to put one of his songs in one of our chapters of the ‘flamboyant five’-series. being released as a freebie on the aforementioned bandcamp-site of the label, you can feel free (nah we tell to do it actually) to catch a copy of the ep. what you’re going to hear is a magical itinerary to the moon and back again to earth. whether we’re talking about the mesmerizing melody, the crisp arrangement or the uncanny-yet-tremendously-good feeling you’re going to have while the music is engulfing your eardrums. be sure to give michael a shout-out, take a look at his discography and share a link on your tumblr-blog.
2. Citylights – Pixel Empire
next song, next moment of being agape. being caused by the reinterpretation of ‘pixel empire’, a song that has been part of the long-anticipated & successful debut album of the french electronic prodigy madeon, you might think about that a perfect song could / should / has not to be remixed by ‘artist a’ or ‘artist b’. the mysterious producer ‘citylights’ gives you the perfect answer of being so ‘terribly wrrroong’ about that specific thought. but how? by taking the original song structure, switching its electro-dancy-rhythm into a piece of lush melodies, creating a whole new song by taking the melody & fuse it with an ambient sheath of hush. after listening to this piece of art, we’re thinking just one thing: ‘who is this person?’ & ‘why on earth did he/she appear right now?’ but before we try to figure it out on our own way, we let the music speak for itself & forget about the origins of its progenitor. being available as a freebie on the magnificent page of ‘zippyshare’, you can sneak a copy of this mellifluous reinterpretation. be sure to give ‘citylights’ a follow, play the song while taming a tree on minecraft, or eat for dinner.

3. Captain Cream – Karat Top
‘karat top’ is the creation by miami-based future-bass & electronic producer ‘captain cream’. being released as a a freebie on the electronic music platforn ‘nhu’, which stands for ‘neighbors hate us’, you’re going to expect a classy tune with a significant melo-composition. and yes, you’re not going to regret the decision. to lose some words about the artist: by starting to put out some music already a year ago, ‘the captain’ put out already more than 5 tunes, each with a significant concept & idea to represent the reinterpretation of ‘cream’s ideal meaning of electronic music. ‘the captain’ might be the right guy for the dudes of the future bass section, with trenchant productions, mellifluous melodies & impeccable arrangements. we would like to make a plea: ‘please, play this out with some good speakers. in case you’re not possessing some good ones, some headphones do also apply’. after u got all the pieces, fetch a copy, open up your media player, press play & say ‘yay’. we’re glad that we came across the captain’s ‘boat’, pleased to see his evolvement.
4. Myst – Nucleus
next one, please. ‘nucleus’ by the uk-based producer ‘myst’ is the penultimate song on this list. but that does not mean that it is the fourth best song we have found on this week. due to some misunderstandings, some producers, collectives & groups thought that we put on a list, from the specific order from best to worst, which we really like to deny. to be blunt, there is not such a thing of a ‘ranking list’. anyway, we’d like to switch back to the artist & his piece of production. being known as the ‘ambient-future-garage-experimental’-bloke, you’re going to have a whole panoply of different creations, different genres, different aspects of music, created by one guy. we’re always fans of people with a big amount of versatility, flexibility & creativity. why creating just one genre, when your soul contains a pile of diversity right inside of itself. the song has been released recently as a freebie on the chicago-based label/collective named ‘blvnt records’ (which obv. stands for blunt). you can get a copy of the future-garage-experimental-electronic fuse on the bandcamp-site of the record-label. and meanwhile, you can take a look at the discography of the artist, the label, give them a follow on twitter or say ‘hi’ on facebook.
5. Tobias – Stop
‘stop’, take a look at ‘tobias geroll’ or to make it terse ‘tobias’ & let the functionality of experimental electronic persuade you. ‘stop’, a song that has been released as a part of a long play named ‘luz’, you can fetch a copy of the album with a small amount of five dollar. what you’re going to expect is: the flawless merger between ambient, hip hop, trip hop & experimental electronic – so a small fee of money for a perfect piece of electronic music is something that sounds quite fair, huh? being the co-founder of the ’10 fold’ music label & collective, the new york-based producer & composer is not an unknown person on the solar mountain universe. as we took a look on the previous chapters on this series here, you might recognize the name. some months ago, we did put the re-interpretation of ‘stop’ by vic alexis (formally known as ‘fresing’), which is in fact a funny coincidence. after you have checked the lp, be sure to check out the collective, which tobias is currently working on its growth & check out the releases on soundcloud.
be sure to check all the updates of the artists, their posts on facebook, like their pictures on twitter, give them a follow, a hug to their labels & don’t forget to eat some vegetables. ok bye.

the end of the tale, but not of this book.
