SWISS BASED AFRICAN GHOST VALLEY DROP NEW EP, ‘ ARA’

‘HYPERMOMENT’, ROBOT KOCH’S NEW LP SET TO DROP IN NOVEMBER 2015.
By far one of the most creative and other worldly, electronic music producers and DJ’s coming out of Berlin, Robot Koch has been a fave of Bloggertronix for a while. His work with Jahcoozi and Berlin based MC RQM, was what first introduced us to this artist, and since that time he has grown both musically and career wise, and last year garnered the German Music Composers Award for best composer of electronic music.
Robot’s first full length release in four years is set to drop on Monkeytown Records, in early November.
Check out the first super slick single from the release, entitled “Circles” feat. Curtain Blue and Delhia de France below.

RAYMOND RAPOSA IS BACK WITH MORE HYBRID ELECTRONIC FOLK – ‘DECIMATION BLUES’ LP
Okay, so this album dropped a few months ago, and I should have mentioned it earlier but yeah…life, babies and such happened, and as you may have noticed blog updates have been few and far between….I’m trying to change that though.
So yes, Castanets’ ‘Decimation Blues’ dropped on ‘Asthmatic Kitty Records‘ in mid-August, and I’ve had it on heavy rotation since so I ought to write about it over here quick sharp right?!
What a deadly release! Front man Raymond Raposa has reinvented the Castanets sound once again with this his 6th release. The bands musical style has developed, evolved into something quite unique…a future sound, a space western soundtrack from the future…really experimental and brighter, much lighter then previous ‘Castanets’ releases.
Despite the ominous sounding title there is hope and light in this 12 track record. The album features broad soundscapes, drum machine beats and synth sounds hanging out with haunting analog elements. It is home to everyday life stories, tales of times gone by, with some familiar characters thrown in for good measure. Stories told in the most poignant way, lyrics delivered via Raposa’s signature rusty-croak vocals…Wonderful stuff!
