German electronic music producer Siriusmo has a new album on the way in June titled Enthusiast, and he’s recently dropped a new track from it, which you can hear via the widget above. It’s a beautifully meticulous track with a hard groove and very jagged melodies I’m enjoying a lot.
I’m also hearing there will be a full-size orchestra on this forthcoming album, which is an exciting change of pace, but Tiny Mix Tapes seems to think the producer may be retiring after this new full-length, which I hope isn’t the case; because the world could use more dance music that’s equally grooving and melodically engaging.
Check a review of Siriusmo’s last full-length here:
Autechre may be coming from the same cold, analytical place they usually do, but Exai shows that their skills for crafting sound are stronger than ever.

PVT bringing the moody glitchy electronic tunes with a lot fun in the mix too.
One of the members was quoted as saying they listened to a lot of Joy Division while writing this song and that is pretty imminent here, but instead of groups like Editors who more less blandly follow the framework of that style of music with some added synthesizers, PVT makes this style wholly their own by adding the glitch electronic effects along with dreary vocals and thumping bass. This is inspiration done right where the artists have taken a style and made it their own.
Nosaj Thing’s sophomore album still has the soft, quaint sounds fans have enjoyed previously from California producer Jason Chung, but with a serious decline in the hip hop vibes that radiated so boldly off of 2009′s Drift.

Via the widget above, stream the latest EP from electronic music producer Gold Panda. Remember him? He’s been pretty busy since the release of Lucky Shiner a few years ago, and Trust is a show of the progression he’s made since, showcasing some smooth and simple microhouse sounds that are sure to seduce.
Look for sampled saxophones, crackles, endless rhythms, and some somber synths as well.
Parts & Labor frontman Dan Friel has a new glitchy, noisy, and melodic solo album on the way via Thrill Jockey Records, and the title is Total Folklore. The first track to drop from it is streaming above, “Thumper.” It’s as abrasive as it is beautifully shimmering.
Look for this LP on Feb. 19th.
Electronic music producer Nosaj Thing is dropping a new full-length album next week via Innovative Leisure titled Home. “Safe” is one of the tracks from it, and it’s a beautifully crafted piece of nocturnal bliss.
The warm and synthetic tones, subtle percussion, and spacey vocal cuts all compliment each other really well. Nosaj Thing isn’t exactly pushing the envelope in terms of ingredients, but the resulting meal is infectiously mellow.
On this new collaborative effort from Tim Hecker and Daniel Lopatin, the two artists combine their respective approaches to ambient and experimental music in a way even the most casual fans can predict. That’s not a bad thing, though. Where this album falls short is in writing and execution, because a lot of these seemingly improvised pieces lack the direction and presence of the solo material each of these guys have released.
A new track from the grimy, dark beatmaster himself, the Gaslamp Killer. Last I heard of this guy, he was producing Gonjasufi’s a Sufi and a Killer, and putting out an EP that I reviewed pretty well.
I’m excited to hear that on Sept. 18th, he’s gonna be dropping a full-length on Brainfeeder, and the track above is the first to drop from it. With loads of distorted beats and soundtrack-inspired strings, the Killer brings together a perfect blend of rough and smooth sounds. However, they all seem to had to an overall dissonance that’s actually pretty dramatic. Diggin’ it.
