Objekt – Needle And Thread

Objekt is Berlin-based electronic producer TJ Hertz. Joining the avant-garde composer Actress, Hertz also excels in future, data-driven music. I like the way he describes his music on his Soundcloud:

“Adventures in machine music built to make subs rattle and feet wiggle; a convoluted mess of elektrology and teknology, 3-step, bass-core, post windmill, proto-minimal wankstep, gondola, shithouse, acid wonk, ambient gabber, no more, no less.”

Get stuck in to some next-level beats. 👂

Gulu singing legend and ‘Acholi folk pop’ 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.

Patten – RE-EDIT70

Patten is a London-based experimental duo known for their awkward experimentation of electronic music. Their new remix compilation RE-EDITS Vol. 2 is jam-packed full of reworks from Boards of Canada (stream ‘REEDIT 70’ above), Cocteau Twins, Cypress Hill, even Rihanna. Each track gets  its own music video as well.

Futuristic, chaotic, next-level — Patten’s goal seems to want to be or smash together the avante-garde.

Fakear – Jonnhae Part 2.

Fakear is the artist name for Théo Le Vigoureux, an electronic producer based out of Caen, France. His most recent album Vegetal: Offshoots was recorded at the same time he crafted his debut album Animal.

Says Fakear on his Bandcamp page:

‘The fulfilment of the circle of life. Animal is nothing without Vegetal; written at the same time and with the same will.’

Taking influences from around the world, Fakear this time focuses his palette on India. Of the seven track spiritual journey, the last track ‘Jonnhae Part 2’ may be the most uplifting and ethereal.
