I have pretty much ignored the world of "electronica" or IDM for a while now. After years of pursuing every limited release, and the fetishization of labels like Warp and Sahko, I just felt that the train had run its course. Well we of weak willpower rarely give anything up forever, and this goes double when Ghostly puts out a cd of tech with a free sampler of idm or SMM (Sensual Machine Music?). A promo priced attractively at 5.99 also sweetened the deal. So here are a couple of choice selections from the SMM cd.
Richard Devine is well known for his fiercely abrasive music and for working for Nike and Disney.
Richard Devine - Murman
Cepia are completely unknown to me, but I like their lovely noise.
Cepia - Ramp
