Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

        been listening to blanck mass on repeat pretty much since it came out. choice as hell.

        when it comes to ambient techno, i have many favorites, but specifically for the dubby side you’ve already hit most of the high water marks. donato dozzy (1/2 of voices from the lake above) has some great dj sets as well, esp from the now defunct mmnl ssgs blog. he’s all over the place.

        the porter ricks album is great, but like almost all of the basic channel/chain reaction stuff, it requires VOLUME to make sense. it is club music in the most specific meaning of the term – giant spaces and loud systems make the most of the mix. on headphones, etc, at normal volumes? it just seems smushed, even ripped to flac from the original cd pressing.Report

      That Voices from the Lake is good, I added it to my list of things to pick up (once again, you guys are costing me money! [shakes fist])

      Weirdly, it actually reminded me a bit of FSOL’s Lifeforms, in that it has a really…organic feel, I guess?Report

        a lot of really good uses of reverb, i think, give it that feel, since both are obviously sample based. they both also feel more like live jams than planned, too.Report
