    I’m around! I barely have enough time to write for my official channels it feels. I was proper 40 year old last night, falling asleep on a couple of codeine in front of Deep Space 9. The... oddest drug fuelled evening I’ve had.

    Spotify has introduced me to someone called VARG. Atmospheric, melancholic with some hip-hop/trap elements. This is beautiful:

    Yes. Varg! You'll absolutely want to get over Northern Electronics:

    https://northernelectronics.bandcamp.com/

    He has done some stuff with someone called Michel Isorinne in the past under the moniker D.Å.R.F.D.H.S. - their In The Wake Of The Dark Earth album is my all time #1.



    I am more Isorinne than Varg when it comes to sound.

    I spend most of my life buried in "atmospheric, melancholic" nowadays. Less so on the hip-hop and trap! So this sort of thing:

    https://www.discogs.com/Varg-Star-Alliance/release/7583234

    If you ever want a list of nicely detached stuff like the DARFDHS thing there, just poke and I'll make a Spotify list up.

    Most of this should be a Spotify away.

    Anything by Michel Isorinne (or plain Isorinne).
    Född Död - Studie I Närhet, Längtan Och Besvikelse
    Varg2(TM) (because he has a new name now) - Star Alliance
    KWC92 - Iran
    Iori - Cold Radiance
    Ripperton's two ambient albums Contrails and Sight Seeing
    Donato Dozzy - Plays Bee Mask
    Cass. - Postclub Prism
    Albrecht La'Brooy - Healesville
    stuff like the Air Texture series, but it depends on who is curating. I like Volume 2 & 5, 6 from memory. I've just been sent the promo for 7 but it is a bit dissonant for my delicate ears in January.
    Pataphysical - Periphera
    Civilistjavel - Civilistjavel 1 (you won't find this on Spotify, so look for youtube
    Khotin - Beautiful You
    Various Artists - The Harvest Of A Quiet Eye
    Various Artists - Mono No Aware
    Terekke - Improvisational Loops
    I want to say Emra Grid - Shay's Vacation House, but only listen to that if you're ready for something that touches on the uncomfortable! I wrote about it here and it was quite a big album for me. I bought the glorious vinyl copy in the end.

    I think that is a nice breadth of sounds! Some of it is blissy, some of it is dark, all of it is compelling.

    Goodness gracious this Isorinne album (‘Speechless Malison’) really is quite something. Thanks @WiDGe->!

    Yeah, I'm a big fan. He sends me his new stuff when it hits, which is always nice. That was one such album, which I turned into a word dump:

    https://inverted-audio.com/review/isorinne-speechless-malison/

    Once you get into his stuff, you realise what aspect he brings to collaborations. Varg tends brings the abrasive side to DARFDHS, but Isorinne tempers it with a knack for reflective melody.

    I'll keep my ear to the ground for more bits and pieces like this as the year unfolds.

    That Född Död album in the recommendations list turns out to be absolutely fucking spectacular and has been on repeat play all day. I shall be investigating Varg next (not least because he had his beardy finger in that particular pie). Also I see that the press release described it as “a beautiful portrayal of disappointment” :disco:

    Definitely more bits and pieces please @WiDGe->

    He's been around for quite a while, but I completely forgot about him for the last few years despite being obsessed by him in my youth, and not just because he looks like a terrifyingly enjoyable aryan shag. Anyone else into Vladislav Delay? It's the most organic and improvisational electronic music I've heard, there's probably a more profound Finnish word, but it's just so WISTFUL.

    Lumi is probably his most accessible track, but don't worry, there are hour long ambient passages for when you really have nothing to do.

    Huone is his take on 'clubby' and it is also sublime.

    Although I've just remembered he also produces quite exceptional vocal house under an alias if you want to hear his hands handle a 4/4 beat.

    I had a handful of Vladislav Delay releases when he first showed up but it's been a good while since I revisited them. I had the album on Chain Reaction and also one of the early Luomo albums, the title of which escapes me.

    The utterly tremendous Isorinne has become the soundtrack du jour chez Zu, and there’s a certain Coilism about this one :weed:

    here y'go - a 2-hour plus barely-moving "ambient" epic from US attic-dweller Kevin Drumm whose back catalogue is famously super cheap on Bandcamp. Stitch, if you will, this...

    This is quite nice. I imagine it could be great for sobbing if I still had the capacity for such a thing.

    I’m quite a different person musically to my very active days on here. I feel I should do a top albums thing here some day soon.

    i have this on now! I find something uplifting in embracing something melancholic. Just love to climb inside.

    we’ve been sent a new Vladislav album I think, but I’ve not checked it yet. Needed soft music this year.

    Oh we're talking dBridge?

    Well I'll say this: I consider this to be the greatest DJ mix of all time.
