Murcof (aka Fernando Corona) had been around for some time in various electronic multimedia groups before emerging with his own debut album, Martes, in 2002. He’s signed to UK label Leaf, home of Four Tet, Susumu Yokota and Caribou, among others. I was lucky enough to meet him in a town called Sligo on the […]
A night spent clicking deeper into the digital rabbit hole, clutching at fickle interactive works and embraced by ambient electronica, I discovered ICASEA. A British, Japanese and German collaborative, ICASEA music distribute crunchy and fragmented walls of distortion alongside lush and funky digital beats, all disseminated via digital delivery with occasional vinyl and cassette (yes, […]
Alex Trochut is an illustrator, designer, and typographer based in both Barcelona and Brooklyn. His series of Binary Prints pushes the boundaries of traditional two-dimensional work by showing two separate images on one surface – one image is visible in the light, and a completely different image is visible in the dark.
This extraordinary electronic music artist has one of the best live shows ever. He uses a set of stacked cubes projected onto with a laser show which moves, morphs and transform as the music evolves. He will soon be playing at the Delaware Pavilion in East Sussex. Check it out, if you can.
I’ve seen Sydney-based electronic-pop producer Elizabeth Rose performing in Melbourne lately and have been captivated by her stunning performance. After bursting onto the scene last year, she’s experienced a meteoric rise, played tons of festivals, collaborated with UK producer legend Sinden, remixed Flight Facilities, and supported New York’s amazing Chairlift.
I was introduced to the musician Dimitri Grimm by drummer Julian Sartorius. Both Dimlite and myself perform live with Sartorius as the only other musician on stage. I was knocked out by his music, and he is now one of the electronic musicians I most admire. He delivered a brilliant re-interpretation of The Hunting Owl, […]
Ry Legit is one of those artists that changes the course of a genre. He produces some of the heaviest dubstep to date, while keeping it audible. His music has a seemingly macabre aesthetic and is perfect for fans of electronic and metal music.
Jozz Scott makes crazy electronic music. I wouldn’t even know what genre it is classified under. A strange yet wonderful mix of electronic, hip hop and wonky video game beats, the music is very layered, often taking you on some very unexpected turns. Jozz and I decided to do a little animation for one of […]
We love jelly as much as we love music, and now it appears we can have both in one. According to French designers Raphaël Pluvinage and Marianne Cauvard: ‘Noisy jelly is a game where the player has to cook and shape his own musical material, based on coloured jelly’. Somebody will have to make sure that these yummy instruments don’t get gobbled up before the music is done.

Amon Tobin has been making forward thinking electronic music for over fifteen years. His latest effort, ISAM, which you can stream in its entirely, is unlike anything I’ve ever heard before. He’s bringing his album on tour with a stage show that matches the intensity of the album. As my friend Ryan said after the […]
Amon Tobin is the maestro of surreal electronic music. I always wanted to make a video for one of his songs, so when I had the chance to start this project, I was more than inspired. Instead of using computer generated effects, I did everything by hand. All the effects and images on this video […]
