We’ve had a lot of stormy Fridays recently, but one of the things I love about doing this show is that it makes me go find new music, or at least music I haven’t heard before. Hopefully music I like, too.
For tonight I raided the Bump Foot netlabel on Archive.Org.
Without being too on the trip-hop side, or too on the ambient side, I ended up in the middle.
Two EPs by Reii – Aeris Iris EP and Faraway Times EP. We could describe this music as “spacy downtempo”, “trancy techno”, or “glitchy IDM”, but it’s a slower style of trip-hop which I found really fascinating to listen to.
We have heard Dimitris before, and this is indeed a replay, but I think it fits here. Black and White is mostly pianambient, and makes a nice counterpoint to the Reii playing before it, and especially what comes next.
Nienvox, with Sign, carries a slightly more organised tempo but retains the downtempo, acid jazz feel.
And we finish with SM, the Met-Amorphous EP. I simply find it a great listen.
The show starts at 3PM PST/6PM EST/23:00 GMT/00:00 WET
