Toy Sounds, Vol. 1 is like espresso for your headphones (or at least a sugar buzz)! This jaunty electronic album will scratch your mid-tempo itch and sports a few crispy samples here and there to liven it up even more. Build-ups, bouncy beats, and bubbly bass bump along while high-end drips and drops keep things moving at a quick pace. This belongs in every video game enthusiast's collection or anyone looking for fast-paced electronic tracks to keep them company at work or at play.
The latest release to FMA from the prolific Chicagoan, Captive Portal, is the 19th album he's added to FMA - we can't wait to hear what he comes up with next!

Boot Magna is a compilation of new works in progress, remixes of existing Lazy Salon tracks, and unreleased elements from the archives. All instrumental, all psychedelic and all created through a process of merging recent & older elements to create new music.

Macaque Records is proud to announce the release of the third album in its discography, the experimental Cedar St // Acacia Ave by Sams n. Choppy beats, sparse vocals, looming atmosphere and odd tangents augment this unique collection of music. Get lost in the curves and pulses of the record tonight!

"Loops" is the new collaborative album by Nul Tiel artists Bio Unit and Metre, combining their different takes on electronic music to create these 20 tracks. Heavy on beats and bass, these loop based tracks range from ambient to techno.

Here at Musiio we’re constantly testing and fine-tuning our A.I. to make sure that it is functioning at optimal capacity. In one of our usual testing sessions I noticed that it can pick out certain instruments and styles of playing really well.
In these tracks picked out by our A.I. we have bands inspired by Balkan brass orchestras and swinging early 20th century jazz. Disparate scenes far apart but all featuring the same fun and joyous sound of wind instruments!

Is it possible for an expanding capitalist economy to remain within safe ecological limits or is it doomed to fail ? Capitalism requires constant growth, profit and production with an increasing population to remain stable. Without sufficient consumption, which creates more demand for production, the cycle would be frozen and capitalism would fail. These mechanisms do not provide incentives for preserving the environment and it falls victim to this compulsive behavior. Is the sharing economy an answer. Is Free Music Archive an example of sharing yet still giving listeners options to support the artist to keep making music.

Some Strange Songs I recorded a while ago which originally appeared on different albums. I've since decided they should all go together as one compilation.
Here's a taster:
