Spotlight On…

I have been having a giant clear-out and I found loads of scraps of paper accumulated over the last 8 years with artist names on them.
So I’ve decided that for 2020 I will post a few here at a time and add them to the artist directory, as well as posting on Twitter and Facebook.

There are many…

As usual, no order – no preference

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 –













 

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.

Reblog – Teresa Rampazzi’s voice and her unique piece “Taras” — laura zattra

Curious to hear what Teresa Rampazzi’s (1914-2001) voice sounded like? This is a unique opportunity. This audio track I’ve uploaded on SoundCloud is part of a radio programme aired in 1985 “Le nuove frontiere della musica” (New frontiers of music; director: Tonino Delfino). Rampazzi and Delfino are discussing her piece “Taras su tre dimensioni”. The […]
