  • Downtempo
  • Experimental electronica

Jukka-Pekka Kervinen – Expected Values (2011)

  • Experimentalism
  • Conceptual
  • Experimental electronica
  • Avant-garde
  • Contemporary classical
  • Abstract music

Comment: it is time to arrive at Altered State Reflections which is led by Jared C. Balogh who is experimental musician as well. The Finnish artist Jukka-Pekka Kervinen`s 3-track issue is technically conceptual because all the tracks represented over there are subjected to algorithmic patterns though played in different instrument-based modes. More profoundly, Kurtosis is for celesta and toy piano, Monotone is for clarinet, and Population Of Size N is for flute, oboe, and viola. However, one could perceive a shitloads of turns and rapid chord changes to elevate the concept to the next, robot-alike abstract level. Despite it, paradoxically, the whole involves many progressions which seem to be somehow warm and temperate ones. Maybe it is not abstract kind of music at all? However, it could be tagged as an example of such sort of classical music being related to academic, educated music circles. In a word, it is a thought-provoking glass bead game through the sonic frequencies.

  • Leftfield pop
  • Alternative dance
  • World fusion
  • Experimental electronica
  • Experimental pop

Label: Bandcamp/Self-released

Meow Meow vs. Jefflocks - Hard Gaan (2014)

  • Bhangra
  • Alternative dance
  • Drum and bass
  • Jungle
  • Wolrd fusion
  • Crossover
  • Breakbeat

Comment: this 7-piece issue by the Netherlands-based artists is a fabulous example of catchy broken rhythms and vocal delivery. More profoundly, it is relied on highly energized drum and bass and bold jungle paces to provide the background to bhangra stylized singing. At times the whole is saturated with relaxing synth progressions being so characteristic to deep house progressions thereby adding some complexity in structure (infrrrrma fe Dead). However, one can perceive some sublime noises and scattered sub bass frequencies coming out of the maze of the blend of those intensive rhythms and vocal deliveries. In a word, it is a fascinating punch getting your soul and body. Last but not least - it reminds me of cool late teenage listening sessions with music by Asian Dub Foundation, and Fun-Da-Mental in the 90s, The issue is a part of the discogrpahy of a meritorious label, Sociopath Recordings being active since 2006.

[Teaser of the day] Blues For Spacegirl - Quiet Fire In The Sun


  • Soundscape
  • Ambient
  • Minimalism
  • Dystopbient
  • Avant-garde
  • Micronoise

Label: Jamendo
Year. 2009

Basicnoise – More Agravic EP (2009)

  • Ambient dub
  • Dub techno
  • Crossover
  • Deep dub
  • Experimental electronica
  • Dub house
  • Techno dub

Comment: it is a haunting beauty from the past – it is both dance-appealed for your brain and the very overwhelming object to be depicted through your legs, hands and body in general. It could have been an example of perfect ambient music if these compositions would have spared from “smearing” with house, techno, and dub elements. However, the Peter Fanai`s result seems to be even better thanks to the aforementioned smorgasbord of sounds and styles. All these branches will be reflected in one another thereby constituting the circle which is a perfect figure since the ancient Greeks. By listening to it you can perceive that the sentence “I can travel to the future” seems to be downrightly true.
