IDMf037: .μ-metik – Paths

Imagine if someone took you to a perfectly relaxed environment where they could soothe your tensions and ease you into a relaxed and peaceful, meditative state. Just as you fall into a blissful slumber you suddenly wake up again, only you haven’t really woken up, you’re still unconscious, just lucid, unexpectedly thrown into a dream where the world around you is a giant computer and its various components make wonderful sounds that match the
glitchy beats and the futuristic synths.

IDMf036: No Foors – Oil and Blood

Oil and Blood opens with a mean soundscape of noise and abrasive textures, landing in a wonderfully obscure realm between the quietly hypnotic and the jerkingly rhythmic.

IDMf035 VA – This is good tea

Another exciting compilation from those wonderful aural pioneers of IDMf, This is Good Tea rolls through a compelling array of carefully sculpted, perfectly crafted masterpieces. Often tied together by glitched beats, unique rhythms, haunting echoes and beautiful melodies, the netlabel again proves it can offer a release that boasts both variation and coherency, no song out of place despite the diversity of the palette.

One thing that seems to run across all the songs on this compilation is the dreamlike nature of them. In terms of composition, sound design and on a whole a brilliant example of quality musicianship this whole album evokes all sorts of emotion and at times conjures up the most interesting of imagery in the listener’s mind.

Prepare yourself for a treat. This really is exceptionally good tea.
