here’s some ambient and other electronic music

Checking some emails containing news beats and sounds lately I came across some nice finds. The brothers of Somatic Responses are pumping out electronic music albums like the things grow on trees judging from their bandcamp page. Some stuff is great, some stuff is less to my taste but it’s always on the edge, dark and breakcory and glitchy.

Their last album Obscure the Future however has nice, chill ambient tunes on it instead of the usual hectic beats and harsh sounds. So if you are looking for something more easy-going yet deliciously electronic, this might be just it. Perfect value for your money as you can name your own price for most of their albums. Nice.

Another great find comes from Kaometry records, pushing interesting and quality electronica/breakcore/drum’n’bass/experimental stuff for quite a while now. They publish across the full electronic spectrum (or at least the interesting more beat-driven part of it) so it’s worth checking out.

Came across this particular drum’n’bass gem in one of their more recent albums Méta-Féeries

They have some free downloads on their website (see downloads), a shop on bandcamp and a lot of streamable music on soundcloud.
Check em out if you’re up for some new beats.

Free tracks are always nice, and especially if they are from hardcore drum’n’bass artists like DJ HIdden & Limewax.

To celebrate 30k fans on Facebook the lads at PRSPCT recordings have a free download up on Bandcamp with DJ Hidden’s The Resonators, Limewax’s Pain and a Resonators VIP remix by the Outside Agency. Nice.

Go get em, and don’t be a cheap ass. ;)

make it loud

The Themeless releases from the Dutch breakcore.nl site always have tracks that make it worth checking them out and giving them a few listens.

You can download their latest instalment “Themeless 6” as a zip archive or stream it straight from the breakcore.nl bandcamp page. If you feel like getting some more of that, check out the other releases too on bandcamp, like this Non Human one, which is your typical (yet good) jungle/ragga breakcore-type mayhem.

People email me links to their releases sometimes, and when they are free to download I tend to check them out. This one ended up somewhere way down my inbox because of life and being busy and stuff like that. However, this one is too good not to mention.
Check out the Abnormal Behaviour EP from Syk2ne. Took me a while before I got that name really. Anyway, it’s 2 hard drum’n’bass/breakcore tracks you’ll like if you’re into music from folks like DJ Hidden or Enduser. You’ll find more down-tempo yet equally glitchy and experimental electronica on his other EP’s Escape From Quarantine and Sick Man. He just released a new one on Battle Audio Records called The New Disease as well which is only €0.99.
Good stuff.

Last but not least another free digital breakcore release on the Bitcrusher label, number 14 by BeK + WhiteRatBeat called Mask of the Shame. It’s glitchy, it’s fast, it has tons of samples and breaks, 8 bit crunchy sounds, ragga vocal snippets and the necessary breakcore humor with hard fucking beats in it. Oh yeah and it’s free too so why don’t you give it a shot?

Who needs record stores if you can get all this free stuff right?
