I left that world of dreams and entered one anew,” coos Anna Fox Rochinski, one-third of Boston trio Quilt, during “Tie Up the Tides.” Taken from Quilt’s new album Held In Splendor, the song actually follows that sentiment, as it shifts from one exquisite reverie to another.

You push it open and there it is, a perfectly preserved specimen, all the details tell its story, all the sounds tell its history.

Jan Jelinek and Dennis Busch made this record that is not really a collaboration in the traditional way. In the summer of 2013 Farben (Jan Jelinek) remixed his way through the extensive oeuvre of the sample and collage artist James DIN A4 (Dennis Busch) and gathered ten of his favorite titles. The intricate process does seem to reflect, but at the end, this could almost be seen as a Jazz record… or a collage of many Jazz records.

RVNG Intl. unearths unreleased portions of K. Leimer’s vast archives and highlights the work of a self-taught visionary whose use of generative compositions ferried his music to infinite resonance. This double vinyl release features material from the 1975-1983 period from this Seattle artist that somewhat forged a self contained music scene in itself. The sonic territories K. Leimer explores can be traced to and from the many places that existed before and after these compositions took place, however, there is something that makes them unique as they are a creation of an artist with his own voice.

The announcement of a new record release on Sahel Sounds is always a cause for celebration. Balani Show Super Hits: Electronic Street Parties from Mali is an especially celebratory collection of true party music from Mali. These are the sounds of hi-NRG dance bashes brought from rumbling Malian street corners straight to your ears. This is surefire shake shake shake that will spark and quake. Click play now, dance around your room, then read on to get the official scoop on the Balani Show scene from Sahel Sounds. Bless these music explorers doing the good work!


Balani Show Super Hits is a compilation of popular music played at street parties in Mali. Drawing from across the past decade of Balani Shows, from innovators to contemporary stars of the scene, these are some of the Malian compositions in heavy rotation.

Colloquially known as “Balani Show,” these street parties began in the late 90s in the capital city of Bamako. Unable to afford Balafon musicians, DJs brought large sound systems and cassettes of pre-recorded music – both traditional Balafon music, as well as Kuduro and Coupé Decalé. As cassettes were replaced with CDJs, DJs began to incorporate their own remixes. Today, “Balani Show” continues to evolve. The parties have spawned an entirely new genre of music known as “Balani Show” or “Ambience”, composed by bedroom djs, remixers, rappers, and dance groups, creating high energy dance music.

Balani Show typifies urban music. It’s formed in the city and founded on trans-global influences. It’s a modern music built on new technologies, a phenomena that thrives on piracy. But like the Balani Show parties, it too pays homage to an ancient tradition. It reveals a different narrative of the old vs new – and suggests that maybe the only way to preserve something is by reinventing it, by keeping it modern and relevant in a faster world. – Sahel Sounds

Christopher Bissonnette has long been a staple of quiet listening at dublab. His 2008 record In Between Words has remained fixed in our playlists; its subtle complexity keeps us reaching for it again and again. His greatly anticipated new release Essays in Idleness strips itself of strategy. It is more a journey in tonality – a wonderful, transcendent listen that never loses intrigue in spite of its minimalism. The sort of record that delicately – and too quickly – flows in and out of your consciousness until the next artist in your playlist barges in with a world of noise. In a world of extremists, this record sits perfectly apart.

For the making of their new record, Live On Planet Earth, this 18-piece Orchestra didn’t even set foot in a studio, instead they recorded it live at Berlin-Neukölln’s Heimathafen. Lets hope some day they can all fly to Los Angeles for a live show.

The Numero Group continues its eternal search for those buried gems that need to be dug up and presented to the public, the latest find is the “Warfaring Strangers: Darkscorch Canticles” compilation. Out of shrouded depths were summoned a horde of 16 bands whose sole release justified their entire rock & roll mythos. In this collection, medieval Bonham thunk and febrile Iommi guitar leads crowd out the bluesy Americana that foregrounded those bands, replacing hippie pastoralism with mythology, armored conflict, sorcery, and doom. These worried, warlike canticles occupy a minuscule niche in the American underground of self-released rock, but their appeal is more broad today than in any previous era.

The Cyclist came to our attention through the fruits of our very own Matthewdavid’s honorable music outreach efforts. His Leaving Records label releases the greatest of these sonic discoveries. The Cyclist’s album, Bones in Motion, came as a collaborative release between Leaving Records & Stones Throw. The Cyclist dubs his music “Tape Throb,” which perfectly describes his full bloom flutter and fuzzed up warmth. To introduce “Mackabee,” a white label jam on his Soundcloud account, The Cyclist writes, “Don’t know why, but I love sampling singers that I really don’t like, I like the challenge.” You’ll definitely recognize the singer in question, and regardless of whether you dig the original sample source, we’re sure you’ll find the flipped version beautiful.


As a bonus treat for your eyes and ears here’s another side of The Cyclist in his Buz Ludzha guise from the Love Repetitive Rhythmics EP on All City.

This track by Suicide’s Martin Rev is part of a compilation from 1999 called “45 Seconds Of” The compilation consisted of 99 tracks, 45 seconds each. The sheer number of tracks by so many artists made it an exceptional release, however the real experience of this compilation is the number of ideas and sounds that play back to back in a collage style, making it irrelevant where one ends and the other one begins. A true collaborative experience that included among others Silver Apples, Chicks on Speed, Dntel, and Daedelus, “45 Seconds Of” was just now made available again for the first time since its release by Simballrec.

Randall McClellan was a founding member of the electronic music studio at the Eastman School of Music in 1967 where he later received a Ph.D. in Composition, Theory and Musicology. A growing interest in North Indian music and vocal technique prompted him to develop his personal compositional practice into an active platform for inducing altered states of mind. He constructed his concerts to be spaces for harmonization of mind and body through a musical practice informed by his esoteric studies of ancient mystery schools and sacred geometry, believing these to be primarily teachings on intentional resonance. Compiled with the assistance of his friend J.D. Emmanuel, this 4 cassette box issued on Sun Araw’s label is the complete recorded works of Randall McClellan, previously issued as individual cassettes, as well as a lecture on the relationship of music and esotericism with synthesizer accompaniment entitled, “The Healing Power of Music.”

These unexplainable instrumentals by Fantastic Palace are utterly unique.

DEATH AND VANILLA – The Dödens Vaniljsås Theme http://dublab.com/death-and-vanilla-the-dodens-vaniljsas-theme/ http://dublab.com/death-and-vanilla-the-dodens-vaniljsas-theme/#comments Sat, 25 Jan 2014 14:00:38 +0000 http://dublab.com/?p=40159 Read More »]]> death_and_vanilla

Death And Vanilla came our way via the whispering lips of our friend Neil Schield from Origami Vinyl. The Swedish band is a welcomed new point in the continuum which Broadcast, before them Stereolab and even further back Roger Roger float upon. Like their predecessors, they craft an atmosphere thick with ghostly wisps, beautiful harmonics and pulsating rhythm boxes. “The Dödens Vaniljsås Theme” comes from the Death And Vanilla EP. We are excited to keep our ears on these vibey newcomers.

Like the images created by Northern Picture Library, Lonely Boys‘s “So Strong” can be the soundtrack to that long walk you take on a quiet Autumn day. The mystery, and solitude, all celebrated here and in the rest of the songs from their “Dew EP” out now on Moun10.

Jib Kidder just slid a few treats our way! We’ve recently flipped head over heels for his unique world of weirdo sights and sounds. This multi-tasker has joined forces with fellow NYC producers Jaytram, ROM, Certain Creatures, Helado Negro and Leblaze to form Version Tapes. Here’s a tune from DJ Kid Slizzard (aka that kid named Kidder) off Version Tapes Vol. 2.


Here’s another treat courtesy of Jib. It’s as he puts it, “kind of a niche track.” We’ve heard of kush but never thought of blazing “niche.”

For more fun, check out Jib’s YouTube channel which offers decades of pleasure on loop…And the always turned-on Cinespia folks are presenting a salon with Jib this Saturday at Cinefamily in LA! Click here for info.

Now in sound news, here’s a new one from Yong Yong. This song from the Portuguese duo’s NightSchool Records release Greatest It’s is a slithering sort of sneaker that will slide it’s way up your laptop adjacent arms and into your ears smoother than a snail with slippery skates. So open up and let it all in. You can also stream the full Yong Yong album on their Soundcloud page.

Emerald Web‘s release on Finders Keepers, “The Stargate Tapes” is a collection of songs from the Florida duo from the 1979-82 period. Their sound and connection to artists such as Iasos, Connie Demby, Deuter and Laraaji couldn’t get us more elevated. “Flight Of The Raven” is so ahead, so full of pure analog richness that is hard to grasp in one listen. Put it on repeat, over and over.

Circuit des Yeux‘s “Acarina” from their new album “Overdue” is dark and enigmatic, yes, those are the first things that come to mind. The desperation behind this release, out on Ba Da Bing!, is hard to, and shouldn’t be explained. From previous records on De Stijl to “Overdue” the tunnel continues without any light in sight at the end of it.

This song is the B side to Masha Qrella‘s single “Boys Don’t Cry” (yes, that one by The Cure) Both really wonderful tracks, and while the The Cure cover is nice for its familiarity and twist to the original, “Fishing Buddies” caught my ear for its lyrics and that feeling we all go through. This song is a great companion to those days where all we do is wait for the one we need.
