Longlistens

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 : )
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 on this playlist are tfarhad, ramsha, Alina Moldonado, Trinh Hue Luong,Theremidi Orchestra with Irena Tomazin and Liz Helman.

 

Also if you wish another suggestion of a longlisten, you cannot fail with this –

 

 

I Don’t Do Lists…Continued

During the year I myself fail to cover everything that is released. I just cannot keep up (which is a good thing) and miss a lot too, try as hard as I do to listen. I thought that I would try to recap as many 2019 releases as possible here throughout December, as a way to rectify this.
Anyway here goes. No order, no preference –

I don’t do lists but other people do and these are from a list of Drone releases by Anti – Gravity Bunny  You can see the full list here and were released in 2019-














 

As I have stated I don’t do lists but sometimes lists are worth it and these releases from Anti-Gravity Bunnys’ list are some of the best Drones around  : )

I Don’t Do Lists…

I have an aversion to lists.

They create an atmosphere of  competition between artists and genres. They also often only plug those releases that are ‘readily’ there in view – easy to find.  That is, the artists and/ or labels / PR etc who have the most money and time, often are the ones that get the most focus. Consequently, many female identifying artists don’t even get a look in and /or get overlooked, as proved by the many studies and reports available to prove this fact. I will refer you to female:pressure FACTS and Counting the Music   although sadly and even very recently, there are many more studies from Classical to Jazz as well as Electronic, that report the same findings.

Believe me when I say, that there are large numbers of female identifying artists out there. You only have to look.

Of course, during the year I myself fail to cover everything that is released. I just cannot keep up ( which is a good thing) and miss a lot too, try as hard as I do to listen. I thought that I would try to recap as many 2019 releases as possible here throughout December, as a way to rectify this.

A thought…

Food

I have been putting together playlists since starting out 7 years ago and what never ceases to amaze me is how many of us are out there creating all this electronic music  (and I use that loosely) and much of it goes unheard and /or known. Here is a case in mind.

Recently, I had an email from CHEWn!Zine wondering if there were any tracks by female identifying artists on the subject of food? This got me thinking and was challenging to say the least but what this playlist also highlights is that many of the artists on this list were not heard of by many listeners…

” I didn’t realise there were so many….”

Well yes! We are out there. You just have to look  : )

Please excuse –

a) Unfortunately, there was no embed so you have to listen on SoundCloud

b) the very loose food theme with some tracks,(although it probably demonstrates how my mind works) but in the end, I think it’s worth it.

As with all the playlists, there are no prefences to artist or genre and they very eclectic. They are jumping off points to discoveries. 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 – Asesina Ilustrada, AGF Antye Greie, Poly Chain, Jenn Grossman, Multa Nox, Anne Lepere, Martyna Poznańska, LaMetaFisica, SHITNEY, Marilyn McNeal, minicomponente, Sifonics, Rumblin_ Cynth_ Rampo, sunmoonstar, Sabiwa, Martina Bertoni, MORITA, Maja S.K Ratkje, Anna Zaradny, La Cosa Preziosa, Petra Kaps, swantje lichtenstein, Marjorie Van Halteren, Ella Guro, Cyanching, brthlns glnds, IhearU, _blank, Karine Dumont, miniature zebra, Hyaena Fierling, Fia Fiell, Blevin Blectum, Furchick, Magali Babin, Tamara Filyavich,Yogo Yolk, Yakui, Helena Krobarth,pinnel.
