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
(hyperpop, indie electronic, psychedelic)
Quick pitch: Proudly supporting LGBTQ+ creatives and causes, Bambie Thug’s music knows no limits and boldly smashes through gender and socio-political stereotypes. Non-conformist sounds!
(drone, post rock, noise)
Quick pitch: Inspired by the shape of a black hole and the experience one would have falling through one or simply dying…. An 11+ minute experience vital for any “sound explorer”!
(experimental electronic, contemporary music, ambient)
Quick pitch: “The piece stretches out fragilely, a subtle dialogue between cello and modular synthesizer, while Melancholic arpeggios rely on reverberating updrafts to articulate distant memories, buried emotions.” Infinite!
(electro funk, kraut)
Quick pitch: The one-chord funk energy of James Brown down to its barest essence, using bass, drums, and analog synths to dig deep into the realms of rhythmic nuances.
(indie electronic, experimental)
Quick pitch: “This refers to – as so many things do – social anxiety and lack of confidence which leads to feelings of isolation and loneliness,” Ægir
(Feat. Jack Sapienza)
(experimental electronic, “wave”)
Quick pitch: A song about fragments of memories, a song about utopian architecture, that sinks its roots in metaphysics
(experimental electronic, modern classical, cinematic)
Quick pitch: A strange, dark and fantastic world in the style of Junkie XL (Mad Max – Fury Road) and Hans Zimmer by French composer of electronic music Florian Brunner….
elephant bass communication
(experimental, drone, dark electro)
Quick pitch: With influences that range from Coil, The Legendary Pink Dots (whom ebc has worked with cofounding member Edward Ka-Spel), Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Joy Division, The Smiths- from ABBA to Xiu Xiu, elephant bass communication delivers the goods!
(harsh noise wall)
Quick pitch: Are 11,5 minutes of intense harsh noise wall enough to wake you up from hibernation? Well, you bet! Recorded between 2001-2003 and recently unearthed by B. Wood (also known by his flagship moniker Monggrel) and transferred from Mini disc to PC with very little sound adjustment….
(glitch, jazztronica, experimental)
Quick pitch: File under “electro angst jazz.” Or if you prefer glitch + jazztronica + tons of experimentation = Proud Creature’s ‘Group Therapy’
