Best new music of 2013-2014

As I didn’t write a 2013 list this time last year—I had just moved to New York and the year had been a bit too tumultuous for music to get adequate attention—here’s an aggregated list of my favorite music purchases over the past two years. My list for 2012 is available here. Minilogue / Son Kite / Sebastian Mullaert: overall output 2013-2014 From the very beginning of their career, Marcus Henriksson and Sebastian Mullaert have had a rare knack for the very fundamentals... Read More

Filteria – “Lost in the Wild”

One of the records that didn’t reach my Swedish mailbox in time for the October report is my good friend Jannis’ fourth full length album “Lost in the Wild“, released under his Filteria moniker. As usual I did the cover design and I’m quite happy with how it turned out. Interestingly, in my youtube video from Lost Theory festival 2011 where I played a very early version of the title track (it was just a couple of days old at that time and has been... Read More

New on Suntrip Records: Blacklight Moments

Among my quite diverse musical interests I’m a label DJ for Belgian goa/psychedelic trance label Suntrip Records. For their latest compilation they involved me and the other DJ’s a bit more in the track selection process. It was interesting to see how different our tastes are and I don’t envy Fabien & Joske for having to wade through so many mediocre demo tracks. A compilation is rarely as coherent as an album so there are some tracks I’m not too excited... Read More

I love my speakers

I’ve been home sick for a few days which, if I’m going to be a glass-half-full kind of guy for once, has meant more time in front of the speakers than usual. And good lord do I love them! It’s quite amazing how I can be reminded of this again and again. I realize I haven’t even mentioned in here that some 8-9 months ago we traded in the Focal Diablo Utopia’s for their bigger sibling Scala Utopia. This is what the room looks like currently: There... Read More
