Opiuo – Omniversal

Glitch Hop? Nu-Funk? Bass Music? It’s impossible to put a single label on the style of Opiuo. However, one thing is certain: The sound of the Aussie is perfidiously rocking. During the last year he gained quite a reputation for the ridiculous spectacle of his live show which is more the gig of a band…

Oldtwig – Seaside (Part 1)

Dope beats for sophisticated music lovers: Two years after the release of his outstanding Through Hills album, Oldtwig is back and presents the exquisite first part of his Seaside series. The rich, emotional sounds of a piano and a trombone lead the listeners through deep, slightly melancholic senarios with a very cinematic vibe. Great to…

Djrum – Fabric Promo Mix 2016

Djrum works his way through an intoxicating cocktail of genres and rhythm structures. Nineties rave vibes and happy sunshine melodies collide with heady Techno and Bass Music. Although performed with surgical precision, Djrum’s mixing still has the somewhat raw energy that is missing in the overly sleek transitions of many USB DJs.

Ulf Eriksson – Boiler Room Upfront 060

Deep, hypnotic Techno at its best: “DJing is so much more than just swapping records. It is – and should be – a reflection of the person that’s mixing. Right now I like to do mixes as shapes or waves. Sort of like small sculptures of sound. This is also how it turned out this…

The Lulin Project

The Lulin Project is a visually intense little short film about a man, his cabin in the woods, and eerie things going on in this setting. Works beautiful when watched with headphones on, thanks to the intense soundtrack by electronic duo Gidge. Click the image to watch the film.

Colombia

Beautiful people, scenic views, delicious food and the urban buzz of the big city: Missing the ocean, but inland Colombia is just too good to run away and rejoin the surf circus.

Uone – Rainbow Serpent 2016 DJ set

What Uone delivered at this year’s Rainbow Serpent Festival is so deep, trippy and melodic that it almost qualifies as some kind of Trance music. However, it’s something different, something very streamlined and clubby. The Australian artist describes his outstanding DJ set as ‘the debut of my new Serpent Charmer show’ – definitely something to…

The Wintergatan Marble Machine

“After 14 months of building this thing, it finally makes music”. Swedish musician Martin Molin built a giant yet intricate music box that runs on 2000 steel marbles. If you’re keen for the construction details, check out his YouTube channel where he documented the building process.

Patrick Hughes – Superduperperspective

This is an amazing piece of 3D art where the closest part of the picture appears to be the furthest away, an optical illusion known as “Reverspective”. As you move around the painting, the room in the painting appears to move with you. The video doesn’t do the painting or its effect justice.
