Mysterious of a Blunt – TnJ Loop

With jungle nods to LTJ Bukem comes Mysterious of a Blunt, presumably an alias of Berlin-based techno producer Orson Wells.

Here’s how he describes his music making process in an interview with EdHid:

“It‚Äôs somehow a meditative process immersing yourself in a basic loop and trying to add selectively more elements based on your experiences you have collected. I didn‚Äôt have a mentor or did a programming study. Everything I do is the result of an autodidactic approach.”

Actress – Dancing In The Smoke

After teasing his new track ‘X22RME‘ two weeks ago, Actress is back with another dark, grinder of a single.

‘Dancing in the Smoke’ sounds as Actress¬†sees music, as bits of data, and the hypnotic loop and accelerating orchestral keys allude to our electronic ‘future,’ a vocal that punctuates throughout the track.

Actress’s album seems to be pairing well with today’s gloomy times.

The album aptly titled AZD launches later this month. Snag both tracks on the Ninja Shop.

Kelly Lee Owens is a London-based electronic producer. Her eponymous debut album pairs together deep techno vibes to balearic beats and drifting vocals.

‘Bird’ is one of the highlights of this fantastic album. It fades in at the 1:45 mark.

Gulu singing legend and¬†‚ÄėAcholi folk pop‚Äô pioneer Otim Alpha teamed up with¬†London producer Jesse Hackett and multi-instrumentalist Albert Ssempeke¬†to produce¬†Ennanga Vision,¬†“deconstructed musical forms from the kingdoms of Uganda.”

The album’s single ‘Otim’s War’ mashes together techno elements into traditional choral signing. The result is something like you’ve never heard before. The music video is fascinating too.
