UK duo Maribou State have been known for their inventive productions for the better part of 3 years. Their remix of Ultraista’s ‘Gold Dayzz’ still finds its way into our late night playlists. Yet, a busy touring schedule means new material comes rather sparse.

 

You could thus figure our excitement when new single ‘Rituals’ advertised their debut, Portraits, coming out later this year. ‘Rituals’ is a minimal dance track with atmospheric acoustics and mysterious vocals that further validates their unconventional allure. We can’t wait to see what the rest of the album has in store for us.

 

Maribou State – Rituals

Ultraista – Gold Dayzz (Maribou State Remix)

Maribou State – Scarlett Groove (Feat. Saint Saviour)

Four Tet – Text022 (Maribou State Edit)

Fresing

 

Missouri’s Fresing throws together a bunch of discordance to make beauty out of the chaos of differences. Add to that the experimental nature of his music, piano riffs, and the sound bites from cinema classics and you’ve got some of the most next level music we’ve heard in a while.

Australia’s LUCIANBLOMKAMP got our attention last year with his self-titled EP. It was eerie & ambient looping that gave us a good preview of his methods. His full-length, Post Nature, came out recently and has most certainly kicked our expectations to the curb. The way the album pulls together seems to be a ‘digital criticism’ of music’s conflicted progression towards an electronic era. This anomaly drives the album and can easily be gathered from the hard electronic pulse, haunting and inquisitive thoughts, random pairings of acoustic blues, and overall ambient expressions. It drags you exploratively inward and then piques the senses just when you think you’ve figured it out.

By ‘Shook’ the album has touched so many bases that there’s no point left in trying. And you shouldn’t. In the end, it is clear that the will of Post-Nature is to make you flirt with all-and-other-worldly examinations through an existential kaleidoscope. LUCIANBLOMKAMP’s debut adds a much needed layer of flow for your stream-of-consciousness.
