Happy New Yeah!!

December 31st, 2010 // 1 Comment // Posted by Lukas

A year full of the best music goes to an end. I hope i could make a small contribution with spreading some of the stuff i love. Unluckily my job sometimes makes it hard to post on a more regular basis. Let´s put that on the to-do list for 2011. I am also trying to finally free up some time for a totally overdue re-design of the blog. Looking forward to that in the first month of 2011.
A big thank you to all artists, people that emailed me with input and to my dear friends. Have a blissfull start into 2011.

I leave you with 2 tracks that i specially enjoyed this year (among many).

James Blake – I Only Know (What I Know Now) / I wasnt sure which one to his 3 EPs where always with me. I really love the mood of this one. Go for a walk in the snow, put this tune on. Wow.

Seu Jorge – Cirandar / This track was playing nonstop for a couple of days… i speak portuguese and understand brazilian well.. he sings from the ocean and of being close to the beach. I think of the beach often as i grew up close to one. A great song to drift away thinking of the ocean…

Seu Jorge – Cirandar by CulturalCannibals

And here´s a little bonus to get you going for tonight.. A remix of the Track “You got that vibe” released on Martin Buttrichs recent Album “Crash Test” released on Desolat Records…Nice!

Altered Zones

November 30th, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Altered Zones is an international collective of music bloggers that unites 15 autonomous sites. Their aim is “to highlight one of the more overlooked narratives in contemporary music– the proliferation of home-recorded sounds, small-scale releases, and pockets of underground activity all over the world.” I check out new tracks and reviews on a regular basis and there is a lot to discover. I specially enjoyed the Halloween 2010 mix, which is in my playlist for some time now. A deep and melancholic mixtape with artists like James Blake, Forrest Swords, Beach House and Burial..winter music!
