Some Spring Electronic Jams

Paneye – Desertism – Provenance

After what felt like a long silence after his previous release, Paneye returns with a new cassette/digital LP via Provenance. What’s showcased here is nothing short of what I was hoping for: a blending of acoustics, ambient and lo-fi all stirred smoothly together.  Right away, it’s quite captivating; showcasing expert production and instrumentation/effects, even songwriting.  Right away, I’m thinking of a more ambient Jose Gonzalez, only better.   That speaks volumes.  I feel like with each Paneye release, the sound and style matures and evolves.  It’s stunning to hear.  Preorder your copy ASAP!  (5 out of 5)

DJ Food/Stricktly Kev – Music on a Shoestring – Psychonavigation

A massive mixture of the best ambient tracks from the label itself, ranging from FSOL, Spacetime Continuum, Off Land, New Composers/Brian Eno, Lorenzo Montana, and tons more. This is one fine, chilled, thought provoking mix drifting all over the ambient spectrum, hitting every spot in between.  Basically, take everything you’ve loved from the label, toss in a few extra tracks, let one of the most prolific and talented DJs mix it all up, and you have yourself one nice trip.  It’s like am ambient fan’s love letter.  Perfect!  (5 out of 5)

About Nick H.

I'm a geek for music whether it be on vinyl, CD, 78 or whatever. My goal is to sniff out the greated music on Earth, specializing in the obscure. I make music myself as well, mostly ambient and sound collage (1 album out and a few remixes so far). I work full time as a professional mascot (it pays the pills) but will soon retire, i hope.
