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
(math rock, psych, kraut)
Quick pitch: A swirling showcase of math-rock, noise and Anatolian psych from experimental collective Kyoto Kyoto.
Swim Ignorant Fire
(world music, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: Loops of African Juju Witchcraft Dance, Chants from India, and Exotic Percussion record grooves swirl together to become Bufo Alvarious, named after the psychedelic Sonoran Desert toad….
Quick pitch: A combination of Y2K bubblegum pop, PC Music’s bubblegum bass and more potently hyperpop, very inspired by the likes of SOPHIE and Charli XCX.
(post punk, nu-disco, new wave)
Quick pitch: Built around a huge tenor sax lead, with big band drums reminiscent of Friend or Foe-era Adam Ant, veering sharply into a pulsating industrial beat.
Sweetheart in Dutch
(no wave, post punk)
Quick pitch: Written and recorded during the pandemic, the music encapsulates sociological and dystopian turmoil. Dadaistic & infectious!
(ambient, trip-hop, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: A dark, ambient, downtempo, atmospheric track with suggestive glitchy beats. Post-rock influence can be heard within guitar samples used throughout the arrangement. Nihilistic!
(avant pop, indie electronic)
Quick pitch: Exploring the parallels between digital space & the invisible space of the mind.
(psychedelic rock, witch house, dark wave, post rock)
Quick pitch: A heavily atmospheric opus by psychedelic, post-rock band formed out of Austin, Texas, Ziggurat.
(afro fusion, global bass, instrumental rock)
Quick pitch: An outstanding and utterly uncommon blend of afro fusion, global bass and instrumental rock from global live and virtual instrumental group Elektragaaz.
(idm, dubstep, glitch)
Quick pitch: A love story between an human and a synthetic mind which lives inside a computer, can be actually a new form of love born in our near future or even this is happening right now with smart phones and users of some sort of chat box apps.
