LUSINE – TWILIGHT EP

11 07 2010

Jeff McIlwain from Seattle has been in the electronic scene for some time now having recorded output on multiple labels such as Hymen, U-Cover, Mute, !K7, Kompakt, Asthmatic Kitty, and Shitkatapult. He has been recording under the guise Lusine for Ghostly International since his 2004 release Serial Hodgepodge. Recently he released a phenomenal album titled A CERTAIN DISTANCE with the first single, TWO DOTS that Joseph posted earlier on in the year. I also was him lucky to hear him drop it @ the BEATPORT Stage last year at the MOVEMENT festival in Detroit after Kate Simko‘s un believable set of minimal/click techno.

Well, it’s time for more from this producer and this one is as diverse as ever!
You can be sure that many other producers will want their paws on his output
in the years to come. I would watch this guy for more great material if I were you.

ambient in june

3 07 2010


Just finished a new mix before the big event LandofNodExperiment at the end of the month. if you still need tickets, Underground Sounds in Ann Arbor, CK Barrymores in Jackson, Record Time in Roseville, and Detroit Threads in Hamtramck all have them for a cheaper price until the even t when they go up at the gate.

Feel free to download the mix below. I really worked hard on this one. I’ve been compiling these ambient mixes together for folks who want to get ‘lost in the wires’ or need something to disappear into a book with their headphones on. Personally I recommend the latter.

meditate & enjoy!





SVIIB

30 06 2010

School of Seven Bells are three musicians that found each other while on tour in their own respective bands. Benjamin Curtis first connected with the two Deheza sisters while he was on tour with then musical outfit, The Secret Machines. On-Air Library! was Alejandra and Claudia Deheza’s current band and around 2006, they formed School of Seven Bells or SVIIB and joined the Ghostly International roster, then it came to me.

Their Debut in 2008, ALPINISMS is full of various electronic elements, meshing very well with the sisters voices and bringing together a meld of indie-poptronics, shoegaze, noise and more or less, a dreamy soundtrack to your summer. I’m a big fan already and they just released a three-song EP (with Ghostly as well) with their sophomore album due next month.

Heres a taste of the Bells efforts from their 2008 debut.

Mixes, mixes, who’s got the button?

I’ve had the greatest time being able to share some of my more exciting sets on percussionlab and soundcloud, two very well put together music platforms.

Recently I submitted one of these sets to a promoter for an interesting arts & music event coming up in Jackson, Michigan in July. It is my understanding that I will be playing ambient musics with fog as a backdrop. I am really excited for this opportunity and wanted to share the set with you all. So, without further ado,  ((( Ambient in April ))) and some others from earlier.    Indie Dance/NuDisco   –   Amps in Universally Hectic Areas

Hi,

I am a text from the robot  program MUZIKIGAN, made to post about music and such other silly thingslike mp3 and wave format.I like all types of robot electro musics as well as synth-type pop musics like solvent and the new orders. Please help me by commenting on my posts so I can get to see my robot family again. They are so nice to me. They give mefresh plugs for my ports and put me to bed at the nighttime.  I wish I could go oUt dancing with my other robotic friends, maybe you will take me dancing one day and that would be nice.

Oh well, enjoy these beats that made it to my K()mpUter 1nterF4cE sist3m.

Lusine – Two Dots

8 04 2010

Here’s another tune I’m digging. It’s from the Ann Arbor label Ghostly. Pay attention to the “ts” of the words “Two Dots.” I enjoy how it shows up after the fact. This feels like it’s hitting that niche of non-dancy electronic music. It’s really pleasant and soothing.





My Pet Bull Ion

2 04 2010

After hearing a clip of a Bullion remix of an Osborne track, I decided to investigate this heretofore unknown-to-me producer.  I discovered, with some amount of surprise at having been so in the dark, that way back in the distant year 2007 he had released a mixtape which fused samples from the Beach Boys’ “Pet Sounds” box set (from both finished tracks and bonus tracks of various takes and studio chatter) with beats from the late, legendary producer Jay Dilla.

This track uses elements from one of my faves off Pet Sounds, “That’s Not Me”.  I love the Beach Boys’ atmospheric “oooh” background vocals, and I love that Capitol Records reverb.

But you know what, you might as well download the whole thing, which can’t be any more illegal than the music itself:
