Beyond Boundaries is a 10-track playlist aiming to feature 10 “out-of-the-box”, outstanding gems! Not exactly unclassified, but certainly unique and uncommon.
“Sound Explorer”: Christos Doukakis
Room of Wires
(idm, electro, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: Electronic music duo from the U.K., Room of Wires, recently released their debut album ‘Plague of People’, via legendary label Ant-Zen, and ‘euphoricore’ is one of its best samples. Outstanding idm/electro with a space-y feel for endless drifts….
(hyperpop, experimental electronic, rap)
Quick pitch: ‘God With A Mask’ is one of the singles from the debut LP ‘The New World’s Internet 801 Orchestra’….. De-constructing hyperpop mixed with electronic and rap to create an utterly unique sonic universe….
(glitch, instrumental hip-hop)
Quick pitch: What may happen if someone mixed glitch with instrumental hip-hop? No idea? Try this little beast that according to the artist could fit well in a anime fighting scene.
(post punk, blues, art rock)
Quick pitch: A visceral and disorientating track incorporating strands of post-punk and atonal blues. Solid Gold stutters and groans through a meditation on moral incontinence, pride and paranoia. This one is the bastard child of Captain Beefheart & This Heat!
(art punk, psychedelic rock, space rock)
Quick pitch: Brazenly amateur but ambitiously envisioned, both musically and visually. Sci-fi psychedelic art punk. Or if you prefer Flash Gordon on acid!
(neoclassical, contemporary music)
Quick pitch: Taktus is a marimba duo known for their groove-based re-envisioning of classical and contemporary music. ‘Music in Contrary Motion’, is an early Philip Glass piece reimagined for the marimbas. Divine!
Quick pitch: ‘Off My Mind’ is an unstructured digital burst of a song lead with a swimmy and distorted synth arpeggio. The airiness of the track is accompanied by ambient vocals and countered by a subterranean industrial beat.
(idm, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: An idm oasis about a rainy day where you look out of the window and see a play of wind, streetlights, and the shadows of dancing tree branches. influenced by acts like Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, and Machinedrum….
(hyperpop, experimental, “noise house”)
Quick pitch: A chaotic blend of noise-punk, hyperpop, and house by brave artist TOMMY PIXELS. On LOSE UR MIND, sludgy bass and booming kicks provide the bedrock for his oddly chirped screams. We call this one “noise house”…. (make sure you check the dope video!)
(trip-hop, world music, idm, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: Berlin-based damish is a producer/instrumentalist exploring with an organic, atmospheric style, and ‘Cuculí’ and this is the debut single, a rare amalgam of trip-hop, world music and idm….
