Scott Hansen, the multi-talented musician, graphic designer and artist known as Tycho, will release Dive, a new album of his trademark ambient/downtempo/techno on November 15. Fans of moody electronic music will love the vibe of Tycho. A free preview song from the forth coming album is available on the Tycho website now.
This is another mesmerising video for the latest Syntaks single, Someone Else’s Dream. Their sound has been aptly described as ‘multi-layered psychedelic pop and kraut-rock as well as the muffled shoegaze-esque cacophony of sounds’. Indeed. [Stream the new Syntaks album here]
We’re huge fans of Ghostly International DJ/producer Matthew Dear, who has just wrapped up a successful tour with Interpol across Europe and the UK. Check out his new track, You Put A Smell On Me (Photocall Remix).
