|A čajnik of Q1|
Black metal with a lovely amount of reverb.
Twisty, windy techno-y house-y I don't actually know but it's awesome and short and worth your time
The Heavy Frigate
Beautiful soothing brain balm
Up In Smoke/Dark Matter/Piano Soul/Moonshine
Lovely classic jungle vibes
Wholesome j-pop that wouldn't hurt a resting fly
on spotify or something i dunno
Reeeeeal nice drum and bass. Layered and smooth.
Kinda deathgrind I guess but they like playing their instruments slightly too well. It's good, anyway.
|8||Love Horses/The Jaffa Kid/Whylie/Bot1500|
Definitely check this out. Ambient, drum and bass, techno, this has it all (as long as those three are all you're after). An excellent paced four-way split.
I can hear this from Birmingham. Thumping dirty techno.
Floaty, cool, early-morning-watching-the-dew twinkle ambient. Lovely.
Drum 'n' bass that bangs.
Eats, pisses and leaves. Nasty punk/grind stuff with one mother of a bass clank, highly rec.
|13||Response and Pliskin|
Drum 'n' bass/techno with any hint of joy removed. Rattles your cupboards though.
Endless Journey Inwards
Evok's review does a lovely job. D'n'b for bobbing along to.
Levende I Brønshøj Vandtårn
My review does a less lovely job. Live album black metal that hits the nice zones in the ear.

Hooversound Presents: Special Request x Tim Reaper
Tim's first appearance on this. Four fantastic songs, further junglified by a man doing glorious things right now.
I’ve Seen All I Need To See
Nasty. Their grimiest in a while and I'm all here for it.
Probably said on my list a month or so back, but Anytime is my song of the year so far and that ain't changing yet. Fucking magical. The rest is a quality time as well.
|19||Torn and Roho|
Maybe I just haven't listened to enough yet, but drum and bass with industrial flavour here. Nice.
Burning Dawn of Vengeance
Standard one-man basement black metal fare, but there's some pretty darn nice riffs on this and some very cool vocal effects.
SOME OTHER STUFF I QUITE LIKED
Really channeling in those 90s nostalgia things through a vaporwave prism, and it's a pretty fun time, all told.
Occasionally a bit hammy but on its game, some fuckin brilliant post-punk/gothic-y stuff here. Hers is one helluva track.
Blackened punk that doesn't hang around too long.
An EP of comfy, happy drum and bass, if a little low on WOW moments.
Regurgitated into Existence
Dodgiest album art but don't necessarily judge by its cover - solid as heck dm with a great vocal performance.
Jump-up. It's fun,
|27||Fardin Ameri and hAarp|
You can be listening to this at times and barely remember it's playing, but it's a beautifully put together ambient album when you do.
Second half of this especially is some very, very nice chilled-out electronic stuff. Nice one os :]
Cedar and Owls maybe set the bar too high cos that song is AMAZING, but still a pretty darn great black metal outing with some nice folksy tilts.
Iridescence Of Clouds
My main whinge being that this is a shade long, it'll probably come into its own on train rides. Especially comforting ambient d'n'b.
Solid as heck black metal with good vocals. Take it or leave it.
Takes a loooooong time to get going but at its best, beautiful, lush ambient techno. Fuck I hate the word lush. I'm gonna go and be sick.
I'm still a little bemused by this.
I think it's on Spotify.
Merzbow doing noisy screechy things.
A little one-dimensional but if you want some techno to kick your teeth in, look no further.
D'n'b that's a smidge annoying on occasion, but We Pretend and Silence Rings Loudest are pretty darn excellent. Can't knock em for production either.
Fun hardcore that I'm glad is only, what, a quarter of an hour? Goes like steam train, but would get old pretty quick. Still, if you need a filler it's a fine way to do it.
Tape loops doing cosy tape loop things. Nice before bed.
La Guerra Delle Forme
Less nice before bed. This may go up the rankings the more I listen. Some fairly uncomfy noisy sound/ambient/electroacousticprobably things.
Breaks 'N' Pieces Vol. 4
I need to listen to the others in this series from Cheeky Music Group, but this one is some pretty nasty garage-uk bass stuff. Well worth a peep.
