Scaffolding, State of Constant Reverie [Plastic Sound Supply – PSS023, 2014]

‘State of Constant Reverie’ is Plastic Sound Supply co-founder and contributing artist Scaffolding’s ninth release for the friendly label. The EP stretches five tracks long and the obvious thing to point out would be the choice to cover the jazz standard and classic ‘My Funny Valentine’ a song that has already been covered numerous times… Continue reading Scaffolding, State of Constant Reverie [Plastic Sound Supply – PSS023, 2014]

Iuengliss, Down Cosm EP [Plastic Sound Supply – PSS022, 2014]

Iuengliss returns to the continually friendly Denver based ‘Plastic Sound Supply’ label with the excellent ‘Down Cosm EP’. Iuengliss’ debut album on the same label was entitled ‘Blank Matter’ and it was favorably received here at resurface.se. The ’Down Cosm EP’ has everything anyone could ever want from a follow-up. My favorite track is: ‘Descent’… Continue reading Iuengliss, Down Cosm EP [Plastic Sound Supply – PSS022, 2014]

Esoteric Sob, Nostalgia [33 Recordings – 33REC061, 2012]

Time and promise… I imagine that I used to have more time and I’ve always tried not to make promises that I cannot keep. I did make a promise in this particular case and since I did do so I do have to honor that promise. The artist ‘Esoteric Sob’ is known to me, like… Continue reading Esoteric Sob, Nostalgia [33 Recordings – 33REC061, 2012]

Naono, Sleepy Pebbles [Archaic Horizon – AH038, 2010]

Since the ‘Vibrant Music’ label always has been a favorite of mine and since Naono has been heavily involved in the very same label from the start. This 2010 Archaic Horizon release enticed great hopes when I found it and let me tell you straight away it does not disappoint! For even more cross-reference it… Continue reading Naono, Sleepy Pebbles [Archaic Horizon – AH038, 2010]

Aitänna77, Night Loops [Test Tube – tube246, 2012]

Aitänna77 is far from being a stranger here at resurface and it’s lovely to once again encounter his musical output. This time around on the (by the look of things unstoppable) Portuguese Test Tube net label, currently racking up 247 something releases the past 8 years or so. ‘Night Loops’ is number 246 and it… Continue reading Aitänna77, Night Loops [Test Tube – tube246, 2012]

Inigo Kennedy, Walls Have Fears [Asymmetric – ASY MP3 021, 2012]

On ‘Walls Have Fears’ we hear Inigo Kennedy pursuing the path struck in his early 2011 ‘Distant Circles‘ release. As expected it’s well-produced, clever electronic music that is decidedly and firmly rooted in Techno. Very big drums, yet delicate and always with the unmistakable IK touch. ‘Cautum’, ‘Squirkle’, ‘Sentinel Four’, ‘Nocturnal’ and ‘Speechless (feat. Laska)’… Continue reading Inigo Kennedy, Walls Have Fears [Asymmetric – ASY MP3 021, 2012]

C.DB.SN + Scaffolding, Covalent States [Plastic Sound Supply – PSS013, 2011]

Another offering from the friendly ‘Plastic Sound Supply’ label operating out of Denver, Colorado in the USA. ‘Covalent States’ is a four track release featuring two artists. One of them is closely associated with PSS, namely Scaffolding, who was featured alongside Heft on the very first PSS release ‘We Will Diminish’ in 2008. ‘Covalent States’… Continue reading C.DB.SN + Scaffolding, Covalent States [Plastic Sound Supply – PSS013, 2011]

Polestar, End of an Era [Boltfish Recordings – BOLTDIGI017, 2010]

Reportedly ‘End of an Era’ is Jon Elliott’s last release using the name Polestar and given that his first release ‘Camplex EP’ on Boltfish Recordings was reviewed in 2005. It now only seems as fitting as it is sad that Polestar’s last release also is a Boltfish one. At the time of his debut release… Continue reading Polestar, End of an Era [Boltfish Recordings – BOLTDIGI017, 2010]

Deadbeat, Drawn and Quartered [BLKRTZ – BLKRTZ001, 2011]

‘Drawn and Quartered’ sees Deadbeat returning in form on his newly started BLKTRZ label. The four-track album is packed with e-dub of the highest order and the production techniques are perfected. The tracks are all generously stretched to the 10 minute marker and beyond. Like I’ve said many times in the past, some like it… Continue reading Deadbeat, Drawn and Quartered [BLKRTZ – BLKRTZ001, 2011]

Plakto, The Ninth Snail [El-Ljud – ELJD010, 2007]

The Swedish based net label El-Ljud tenth release was Plakto’s ‘The Ninth Snail’ and it preceded the excellent thirteenth release ‘Soul’d Out’ by the same artist. The categorisation is solid E-dub, excellent production and plenty of bass to go around. The 8 tracks on ‘The Ninth Snail’ are a treat and there’s enough complexity for… Continue reading Plakto, The Ninth Snail [El-Ljud – ELJD010, 2007]
