Musiio Playlist 13 #Synthwave

“I make ear movies” says electronic producer Starcadian, whose album Midnight Signals (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is, in my opinion, the epitome of synthwave/retrowave perfection. It took me a whole month to realise that there wasn’t actually a film! 

This playlist is a homage to that masterpiece. Best heard from start to finish, I attempted to recreate the drama of a science fiction film by starting with groovy Star Song, introducing conflict in Space Disco and then a sense of lost in Young. Büromaschinen and Omyiga later leads us to an epic space boss fight through fast, arppeggiated Techno and Drum & Bass. All with well-loved 80s vintage synths! 

Thank goodness I had our A.I's help too, or sieving through FMA’s massive catalogue would have been near impossible.

What do you think of the recent 80s Revival movement? Share with us by commenting below!

Musiio Playlist 12 #Shoegaze

Whether you know it as #shoegaze or #dreampop, this subgenre has seen a rise in the last few years alongside the revival of all things vintage. Coming out of the 1980s, it has come back in a big way, heralding in an entire culture of youths embracing it’s iconic mix of rhythmic guitar effects supplemented by breathy vocals.

 

So whether you’re a fan of coming-of-age films shown in indie arthouses or you own way more striped/floral prints than you know what to do with, strap up those Dr. Martens and get ready to turn those lights down as you dance along to Musiio’s A.I. generated playlist of really amazing #shoegaze tracks.

Bernard Grancher - Pleurs Magnétiques

  

For its 38th release, Da ! Heard It Records changes your grey matter into black matter.


Just like the too-strong coffee that brings us to work each morning, this cassette album has the dark and bitter taste of a hopeless routine.
With this collection of vague loops whose high unstable notes bring back to the surface daily uncertainties, the Pleurs Magnétiques (“magnetic cries”) of this beverage has the listener drift far away from restorative sleep.
Dented, used, rickety, these rehashed snippets of existence crash into sunless beaches of sound.
In the background, the continuous breath that animates them sometimes gives a glimpse of its author’s, Bernard Grancher.
After pulling out of the forgotten pile the magnetic tapes of a hundred old pieces from the nineties with his stooge, Emmanuel Lautreamont, the Rouen-born tried his hand here at an original exercise in style. 
Using the 4 track as an actual instrument, he plays with various effects to denature this initial material.
Between sonorous poetry and industrial music, the result shows an unpublished side of his work, all the while staying close to his habitual obsessions. The accompanying illustration, signed Nicolas Nadé, seems to be just as loyal to this pessimistic vision of our era.
Whether you are familiar with his surrealist pop synth released on Ego Twister and Gonzaï or simply intrigued by obscure atmospheres, you are sure to give in to this little black coffee…

Pleurs Magnétiques, the 38th release of Da ! Heard It Records is distributes under a Creative Commons License Y-NC-ND. The album is available for free listening and downloading at the following address: http://www.daheardit-records.net/en/discography/dhr-38

Technical Issues: Update!

We *WISH* our infrastructure was this organized (and color-coded)! Photo via Flickr Commons.

Hi everyone! We know we are experiencing issues today: slowdowns, some login and uploading troubles, search results not returning properly, and a few reports of error messages being returned when they are using FMA. We are aware of these issues and appreciate your patience as we work them out. As you may know, we are staffed by one full-time and one part-time person, so things will be fixed but probably not immediately. 

Thanks so much for your patience and for letting us know you were experiencing issues. 

Having a new issue, or something not mentioned in this post? Please fill out our Contact Form with details. 

Thanks!
