Comment: the Mexican project`s Piyama Party`s issue reflects substantially to the nature of ideology of their home label Delhotel Records (also from Mexico). Their music is a sort of crossover concept where low toned guitars/garage-y hirsute electric guitars are tightly mixed up with electronic rhythms, magniloquent synths and other stylistic side jumps (for instance, Historias Feas is drawing upon the country rhythm/guitar strumming, and Rapera (featuring Pipe Llorens) is a simplistic hip-hop bastard). There are brought forth 7 tracks coming to the end at a length of 17 minutes only. Ultimately it can be admitted it is a solid release with different shifts and ingredients.

Comment: indeed, Teddy Bear`s 2-track issue deserves its title and resonates with the sensual cover print because of swaying somewhere in between filter-heavy house music and elements wafting out of the club dance room. More concretely, with regard to filtered sounds it chimes truly in an oneiric way being counterbalanced with thumping bass frequencies and deliberately repeated vocal sample bits which soon will be distilled to emerge in a more chart-oriented way. However, this issue can also be considered to be a part of the chillwave movement saturated with sonorous breezes and mellifluous sound progressions. Excellent work by any means. The issue is a part of the Japanese label Ceramic Records.

Comment: this is the first disc of the album A Color Map of the Sun which, however, fulfils your greatest expectations conjured up by Denver, USA based producer Derek Vincent Smith`s previous outings. This is the first issue of him which is mixed up from his own recorded sounds by the method of trying to emulate different styles and different eras. More concretely, the first disc includes 16 pieces made up of tectonic plate bass rhythms, cinematic soul samples from the 60s/70s, and velvety sonic textures, drifting stylistically somewhere in between funk, soul and hip-hop music. At times you can perceive spaced-out feeling adding fairly otherworldly vibrations to the blend. On the other side, it is not surprising at all because all these sources discerned over there used to come out from the black music tradition which searching for the redemption on Earth frequently focused upon the zenith and outer space concepts (for instance, the afrofuturistic movement, and Sun Ra`s interstellar metaphysics). By the way, one track features vocal delivery by Talib Kweli and another by Eligh. Beautiful and beatific thought to energize your withered soul. By kindred souls I recommend listen to such producers as Max Tannone, and Chenard Walcker.
