2015 Was Electric

IMG_2559

It’s time for me to pull together another satisfying wrap up of sounds and atmospheres, rhythms, tones and trends from the last year of my music shopping and listening. I wouldn’t call it a best of list, moreso an evocation. When I first became enraptured with music, it was through 50’s and 60’s jazz, the avant 20th century composers, the dj ready dubbed out psychedelia, soundtrack styles, hip hop neck breakers, and futuro drum & bass breakbeat swirls which put the hope of sonic states to the reality of modern states. It was the energy and ambiguity that gave glimpse to the magical and mystical realms.

Touching upon club styles, but relying more on the slowly emerging. Trance through repetition, texture and space. I suppose some might call this experimental or head music. Maybe my neurons are firing a little more often these days. One of the things about music I love is a sound’s ability to transport us to fictional spaces, imaginative landscapes. Sonically to travel time and space in an instant and for sustained periods. The music herein evokes this sensation and touches down for a couple vocal points of reference that man or machine, we are living in the same dream. Different states of play, sleep, pain and desire. Points of view, assumed or real.
