Pale Sketcher’s Seventh Digital Heaven

Once upon a time, deejays took vinyl records, molested them on a turntable, and turned “scratching” into an art form. Inevitable then that the sound of a skipping CD would also become the basis for some new art. Pale Sketcher‘s “Seventh Heaven” is a futuristic sound organism which soars through heavenly zones on a magic carpet of ones and zeros. The sound of the inside of Sean Young’s head in Bladerunner? The place Dieter goes after closing time at Sprockets! Original and strangely pure.

Superstar Matthew Dear’s Superbad “Little People (Black City)”

Matthew Dear – “Little People Black City” mp3

Matthew Dear is a star. A huge star. He’s world famous, major. You just maybe never heard of him. Why? Let’s put it this way. If you’re into the vast, thriving international nightclub deejay music scene, you already know all about this guy. If you don’t, you wouldn’t give him a second look in line at Starbucks. In the age of Internets, there are superstars that for Lady GagMe fans might as well be on a different planet. I like Matthew Dear’s planet, a lot. This music is so beautiful, hypnotic, sexy, original, and kind. There is nothing I don’t completely love about it. So there ya go. My highest endorsement. Get this record in your life and you’ll have more fun, have better sex, eat salads and go to the gym more. Byeeee =) <3

Gold Panda – “You”

His name’s Derwin: Originally from Essex, UK – his production moniker is Gold Panda and his beats serve as a gleefully-warm intoxicant. The thing I notice about this is kind of this subtle Japanese/Far East influence on everything he does. Hit it up. here. for. freebee.

Mux Mool Waxes Rosey

An exceedingly digital statement, “Wax Rose Saturday” takes a ham-fisted, chunky style of copy-and-paste music production, and turns it into poetry. Instrumental jazzy avant-weird-hop for yr mental state. I find it unexpectedly soothing.

Matthew Dear – “I Can’t Feel”

Matthew Dear – “I Can’t Feel”

The Michigan Techno Scene is the home of Matthew Dear and his record label Ghostly International. “I Can Feel” wins the MP3 Jackpot this week. It’s a great accomplishment to be musically unique and create a powerful emotional feeling. Matthew manages to do that quite well. There’s something to be said for this electronic age of music creation.

Mathew Dear – “I Can’t Feel” (play)

Dear old Matthew Dear walks away from his signature glossy techno sound to deliver something funky, warm and strangely poppy. Like Prince in a psychedelic mood only kinda Kraftwerky. Lots of gr8, unusual sounds in this mid-tempo diversion. A sexy, intellectual little brain mint. I can feel it.
