PLAYLIST #199 – LONGLISTEN #12

Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes –
Sometimes tracks are just too long for the usual playlist I put together so I decided to put together bite sized playlists for longer tracks.
Bite sized in number of artists but not scrimping on the length and quality of the listening : )
Experiments in sound, where artists have created, in essence, music, pieces, sound and noise that try to go beyond the usual and traditional.
Take some time and immerse in the sound waves.

As with all the playlists, they are jumping off points to discoveries. They are not meant to be definitive. Just let some of the tracks play onto the next….follow up on “sounds like”….see who’s following, many artists follow other artists….

Artists are J o Thomas, Justyna Stasiowska, beepblip, Laura Agnusdei, Patricia Bizzotto and Pia Palme.

electronic, ambient, electroacoustic, experimental, longlisten, improv, musique concrete.

NEW YEAR: 10 YEARS

Firstly, I would like to wish you all the best for the New Year. A bit belated, I know, due to unforeseen circumstances but let’s hope that 2023 is better than last year for many.

On the positive side, there have already been some new and interesting releases and let’s hope that this continues, especially as 2023 also marks 10 years of Feminatronic. I’m not sure how to mark this milestone but for now I’m carrying on .

So, on with the New Year… and the new releases

experimental, ambient, avantgarde, drone, electronic, contemporary music, new release 2023


electronic, ambient electronic, dance music, hip-hop, techno, new release 2023


experimental, new release 2023


electronic, drone droneambient, field recordings, industrial, ambient, drone noise, white noise for sleep, new release 2023
