#FF057:‘usual sleekness’

a very belated ‘hello’ to you guys. as you probably may have remarked, we usually do the ‘flamboyant routine’ just some hours before. the reason is very blatant & vapid: all we do right now is ‘eat, work, sleep, repeat
it’s not that we are beginnin’ to complain about it, furthermore we’d like to show that naggin’ & sayin’ negative words about something, might end up wasting even more time. we’re just average people, who have to balance their lives & duties on every single day, and honestly it somehow does work out (haha).
if you’re wondering of how it is possible to do all the stuff – there might be one word which definitely fits here: the word called ‘motivation’.
with motivation, it seems to be that nothing is bothering you, the duties that are waitin’ for you, are goin’ to be done, why? motivation, here again.
but before we end up writing about a philosophical analysis of this vapid-yet-trenchant word, we shall come up with our duty by presenting you the things that we have found today, article number fifty-seven, it has been a pleasure:

1.Monophobe – Cluster (feat. Tobias Koett)

we’d like to start with an old friend, that has been part of this magical itinerary: austrian beatmaker ‘monophobe‘. as we’d like to say that we still keep an eye on each (or let’s say, we try) artist that we have discovered & featured on the list, it’s a pleasure to put them again on the list.
while we did add a ‘monophobe‘-remix the last time, we stumbled over his last extended play named ‘throwback‘, which has been released on the austrian electronic music label ‘shash records‘.
throwback‘, a real diverse piece of music on where we have found one of the picks of the week: the experimental-future-bass-merger named ‘cluster‘.
in collaboration with ‘tobias koett‘, who is part of the austrian electronic music duo ‘ant antic‘, max did cook up something very impressive & intriguing. whether we’re talking about the eery-yet-catchy synth-composition, or the arrangement in general, it has been a pleasure to listen to this piece of art.
cluster‘ is available via ‘monophobe‘-soundcloud-acc, so be sure to get your copy of it. shout out to ‘shash‘, ‘monophobe‘ & ‘ant antic‘.

2.Bastian Sikker – Ena

as we’d like to say that everyone can send us really anything, because we personally think that music does not have any boundaries, we did come by this uncanny-yet-pithy piece from aalborg-based artist ‘bastian sikker‘.
the danish producer can be genre-fied into the electronica & ambient-section. so, we did what we had to do & just pressed play to listen to his picayune-yet-succinct discography.
one of the pieces, which mostly impressed us, was ‘ena‘, an electronica-track that has been released around a year ago. while listenin’ to that specific song, you’ll be engulfed by this tenacious soundscape, created by the mellifluous synths & the over-layered piano-solos, so that you will emerge into a new world.
it’s quite unusual to listen to that kind of music, because its intensity is way more different than a vapid ‘pop’-song.
as we did go on to listen to more & more tracks, the itinerary was already over. that was (to be honest) a bit frustrating, since we’d like to go on & on.
unfortunately, there is no info if bastian is going to release a new tune in time, so that we like to say directly to him: if you have something new, please do not hesitate to send it over’.
thaaanks.

3.Zanda – The Attic

the more the time is passing by, the more people we discover from this amazing country called ‘australia’. is it just us or is it gettin’ already a bit scary that that kind of diverse & tenacious output just comes from one single state? it truly looks like that. we’re even considerin’ to get a new member from there, so that we might be more informed about new stuff.
to come back again to the main topic, the music, we’d like to introduce you ‘zanda‘, a sydney-based musician. we came over alexander’s account just some days ago, while doin’ something for the design of the site.
so, while we kept focusing ourselves to work out on some concepts, ‘the attic‘-song was playing in the background. so we did what you or you would do, and played it again, then again & again. it’s not that we like to use the term ‘catchy tune’, because that does sound pretty idiotic, furthermore we’d like to invite you & join the party, the ‘zanda‘-party.
what you’re going to expect are colorful compositions that are waiting for you to be listened. so do what you have to do, check out ‘the attic‘ & don’t forget to say ‘hi’ to alexander in the living room.

4.Kilohurts – Need Sleep

next song is ‘need sleep‘ by miami-based artist ‘kilohurts‘. released already some months ago, it still can be seen as an impeccable example of the true potential of daniel: a chill electronic track, with a salubrious melo-composition that definitely needs to be on your playlist. immediately.
so while checkin’ out his other releases, we were pretty impressed by the versatility & diversity of daniel’s discography, so that someone likes to show you that he creates whatever he feels & loves.
to be honest, this is the right thing to do. it’s not that we abhor or dissent people that stick to one single genre for their entire life, yet as we have already said somewhere here on this article, that music has no boundaries & everyone can create everything, we’re pleased that we have stumbled over this versatile guy here.
don’t forget to give a follow & oh, check out his recent releases.

5.Losha – Falling

last song for today is ‘falling‘ by colorado-based beatmaker ‘losha‘.
we stumbled over this colorado prodigy just some moments ago, while listening to the newest releases of our friends from the aforementioned state, the netlabel ‘couldthisbe‘.
by having the first thought that this might be a fun ride, we simply can not deny that it has been a gargantuan pleasure.                                                                                                      decent releases over releases, followed by a simplistic-yet-genuine style of beatmaking, so that we did know: ‘losha‘ has to be on the list.
we have to admit, we started to like the artist, with one of his latest beats named ‘alone‘, but we did start to love this alias after listenin’ to the featured ‘falling‘-track. but why? it simply shows you the possibilities of how good music can sound like. do us a favor: get yourself a copy. now.
