19 Jul 2009, 14:21 by liftmuziekLooks like I've been falling behind even further. Something is happening, and I'm wondering if it's just me, or is the time really slipping away between the snow and the sprouted greens and the steaming asphalt and the fallen leaves. All I have between now and then are these words, and between the words is always the music. Meanwhile, I was able to squeeze out a free mix for your enjoyment, compiled of some of my favorite Intelligent Breakcore tracks. So point your clickers here for a free download. Besides that, I am also super excited to present you with not just one, but two label profiles covering some of my favorite music. There is the n5MD and the forever beautiful Merck. Click the banners below for a full label profile and interviews available only on reviews.headphonecommute.com. As usual, I would appreciate a comment or two, and recommend that you Subscribe to RSS Feed.

I seemed to have gained a reputation for playing only chillout music on solipsistic NATION. So untrue! I can, however, understand why some people might think that. The last couple months I’ve featured live performances from Dr. Toast and Nalepa, a guest mix from Travis Nobles from the hiddenplace music blog and featured music from Native State Records. So, yeah, I can see why people might think that all I play is chillout. Hopefully this week’s show featuring an interview with Nicolas Chevreux from Ad Noiseam and music from his roster of artists will put that notion to rest.
There is some pretty and delicate music on Ad Noiseam but on the whole, Ad Noiseam specializes in music that is experimental, gritty and very, very loud. Ad Noiseam doesn’t limit itself to a specific genre. From the metal/drum and bass stylings of Bong Ra to the insane breakcore of Enduser to the subsonic bludgeoning of Scorn, there’s something for everyone. …

Толковый а главное не-мейнстрим ИДМ. Много из Net Labels. Получилась очень красивая (в музыкальном плане) и депресняковая неделя. Каждый трек несет мощный заряд меланхолично-угрюмой энергии.
Рекомендовать какой-то из треков невозможно. Каждый по своему прекрасен.

Electronic music has become so common place that no one bats an eye when you hear it. Nearly all of Madonna’s music, for example, is electronic, but she’s about as mainstream as you can get. But electronic music wasn’t always that way. Long before the early days of hip hop and long before the day’s of Kraftwerk, electronic music was the domain of avant-garde composers such as Edgard Varèse.
With "Poème Électronique”, Varèse experimented with electronic sounds, natural instrumentation and recorded sounds. But even Varèse owes a debt to the dadaism, surrealism and futurism, all of which were trying to go beyond the constraints of what music was supposed to be. And in time, these experimental approaches were incorporated and adopted into the mainstream.
On today’s show, we’re going to pay homage to the trailblazers in sound. I hope you enjoy the journey.

I have recently acquired a whole bunch of new music, partly from the Gentle Force's care package from the sides of the indie piles he recieves from his work, as well as some sent to me by the Cyclic Defrost cats, who amazingly have agreed to let me review for them - a daunting task that i hope i can live up to - but is probably the thing i really need to start feeling writing again...
As i write this im listening to Pinky Beecroft & The White Russians(Gigpiglet, 2006), which is quite nice really. The second track is appaling, Fabulous Driving, but Got Control lashes with the fantastic songwriting skill that he had with Machine Gun Fellatio, the humour and sly candour that made that band so amazing. Finishing with a cover of Portishead's Glorybox, which is bluesy and smooth (quite different to Hancock Basement's live stormer then... …
