L-Tron delivers a tightly packaged box of wrangled insanity tied together with disarming potency and four-on-the-floor beats. This is more than dance music, this is don't think about how you dance music. In motion it's equal parts beauty to blister. Opening the blinds, L-tron gives you a glimpse of the demons at his doorstep and the sword he uses to slay them. In this four track EP, dance music structure is melted down and recast, leaving your ears to search for a sound that isn't. Even if your feet haven't moved by the end of it all, you will have gone somewhere.
From the depths of his sophomoric yet mischievous mind, Doomcloud has returned to unleash his latest creation, The Masquerade. This album is aggressively smothered with four original NES productions that even the Underworld would approve of. Please experience these tunes at your own risk.
It's been a few years since Kris Keyser's last EP, and the incubation period seems to have done him well - this eponymous EP sounds like equal parts fire and water, danger and safety. At times it's dark, though still hopeful. It's loud, but nuanced. This is the sound of one LSDJ cart stretched to its limits, yet it finds balance in the midst of the storm.
ZX Spectrum poweruser Yerzmyey emerges from the shadows with Brutal And Aggressive, a six-song foray into the YM/AY dimension's darkest atmospheres. Serrated arps flank cold, phasing tones and punishing low-res rhythms, challenging you to either join the darkness, or meet your end resisting.
Beijing powerhouse Sulumi crashes the 8bitpeoples party with the long-awaited international triple-threat maxi-single Music Offers the Third Eye. The lead-off track "Jurchen" sets the stage with spacious, thunderous Nanoloop beat machinery, and then gives rise to its own pummeling genetic variants courtesy of Shanghai's Elecoy and Stockholm's Covox. Download, plug in, be enlightened.
The day Radlib was asked to play Blip Festival NYC 2012, he
immediately had the idea to put his own spin on some of his all-time
favorite chiptune tracks. The result: four turbocharged dancefloor
monsters, collected here in one killer debut EP. Armed with some old
Sound Blaster 16 sound cards, Radlib keeps the party moving and
creates electro-house free-for-alls via FM synthesis. Long live OPL3.
Long live MS-DOS. Long live LO-FI.

This EP was composed and recorded using a Nintendo Game Boy and Johan Kotlinski's Little Sound Dj software over a period spanning 2009-2011, in New York City (with the exception of redshift, written on Long Beach Island, NJ). I spent much of this same period studying and teaching philosophy, which has, among other blessings, acquainted me with the limitations of words. Ockham's Chainsaw is a fanatical application of William of Ockham's advice to prefer the simplest hypothesis: the very simplest hypothesis is " ". I believe that music is itself communicative, and I offer this EP as an argument for the conclusion: YES.
