Machette – Hit De Deck

Found this gem while listening to the latest Netwaves playlist on archive.org.  If you are looking for an enduring source of netaudio, the Netwaves radio program out of Brussels as been good for going on 8 years now (weekly).

Machette is a French artist who started producing in 2000.  This track is from a 2014 release called Flavors EP.  It was released by Yarn Audio, a Berlin-based netlabel specializing in bass driven electronic music. 

Here is a bit of Machette's description on Bandcamp:
The diverse french producer renders a lot of energy and happiness with his sample-heavy and fast-paced tracks. Influenced by Hip-Hop, Dubstep, Footwork and Jungle, Machette’s broken beats and easygoing melodies are just perfect for a dance in the sunshine or the ghetto.
Welcome to April.

Daily Khaos delivery - Rust

Here is an exciting new release from our friends at blocSonic

Daily Khaos delivery is a duet from Valencia, Spain with a wonderful mix of the electronic and the pop indie sound.  This is a great release called Plastic Houses and it dropped just this morning.

Daily Khaos delivery are Jordi Bohigues and Javier Peiró.  They have been playing as a duet in the Valencia scene for a number of years before getting together with musician and producer Jorge Sasera who helped them incorporate more electronic elements into their sound.  The results are fantastic.

We love this release and look forward to hearing more in the future.

Riz Maslen - Your War

I've been wanting to get back to this fine compilation called Girls Alive since I posted a piece by Alisú last week.  There is some really good work here.  If you haven't already, get on it.

The track posted here today is by Riz Maslen, an electronic musician based in St Leonard's on Sea, Britain (UK).  She has been on the scene since 1996 and is posting new music on Soundcloud. 

She has a voluminous and rich discography.  I was captured by the work featured on the Girls Alive collection and plan to explore more of her work in the coming days.

This is from the Wikipedia entry for Riz Maslen:
During the mid '90s, she worked with 4hero and Future Sound of London. After playing keyboards for The Beloved, she took out a loan, built a home studio and created her first albums there. In 1995 she signed as Neotropic under Ntone and soon after as Small Fish With Spine to Oxygen Music Works in New York.
Thanks to Modismo for turning me on to some new sounds.  Liking Riz Maslen.

Hans Atom - Wake Up Kiss

A quick post for a Sunday morning.  Wake Up Kiss is a 'pella posted by Snowflake at ccMixter.org. Today we share the Hans Atom mix.

If you aren't familiar with ccMixter you might want to head over to the venerable remix site.  There you will find the result of years of crowd production of Creative Commons remixes.  It really is quite amazing.

Hans Atom is from Germany.  Here is something from the ccMixter comments page for this release:

Oh yeah. Killer remix. Great breakdown at the bridge… You really did get everything just right for this mix. Reminds me of Tori Amos and Garbage in the mid-90s… Congrats on the Ed Pick- totally deserved!

Araxis - Essence (feat. Arcadian)

The hits don't stop at Bulgaria-based netlabel, Dusted Wax Kingdom

Today's track is found on a March 9 release called Chronos.  As Subsystem 7 mentioned earlier this month, these folks are impressive.

This is release number 302 for Dusted Wax Kingdom.  That's right, 302 releases...that's what you call dedicated and prolific. Well, actually there have been 2 more releases since March 9 so make that 304...

Araxis is a project of -Synth who is a Bournemouth-based artist. It is well-executed, dreamy trip-hop.

ForstWölfin - First in Space

This track was featured on a Netwaves radio program that was posted on archive.org on March 25. As some might know, we at BSWC are fascinated with Sex and Space.  First in Space gets at our Space issues...

When we went to research ForstWölfin we found their Soundcloud page, but then found that their Twitter account had been suspended...hmmm, a mystery.  Not to worry, this piece from the Netwaves program, [nws329] netwaves 09.19: darktronics, carries the day.

First in Space is part of a ForstWölfin release from the netlabel, GV Sound called Beyond Time and SpaceForstWölfin is from Moscow. The release was posted at archive.org on February 25.

Make sure you listen past the 2 minute point.  The first 2 minutes features some wonderful cosmonaut found sound which thrills us, but then we get to business...

Lucky Criminal - The Indifference

Lucky Criminal is the nom de plume of William Arthur Clark who is from Michigan.  The track appeared on netBloc Vol. 46: #returnofthenetbloc.  

The netBloc series is a product of blocSonic.  Each edition features a wide range of artists and styles. Cool.

Lucky Criminal pieces appear on Bandcamp and Soundcloud.  His latest work has a metalish sound and he bills it as alternative metal.

The Indifference is a lovely piece of song writing in the electropop tradition. Fantastic find. Love it.
