By Elena Colombi
1. Margot - Waldorf
Italian producers Margot A.K.A. Pepe and Giaga Robot with "Waldorf", the first 12" released in March this year on Ivan Smaghe's new amazing label "Les Disques de la Mort".
2. Pacific 231 & Vox Populi! - Gole Mariam
Gole Mariam is a mystical journey into the musical world of Pacific 231 & Vox Populi!, two long-running and legendary french projects.
3. Andy Stott - Missing
Mystery and suspense in this track by Andy Stott's, on the forthcoming album "Faith in Strangers" on Modern Love records.
4. Vincent Gallo - Was
Probably my favourite track from album "When", released on 2001 on Warp.
There's something odd, awkward but at the same time very beautiful in all the work of Vincent Gallo, wether he is directing, acting or composing music.
5. Subject - What Happened to You?
Belgian duo Subject built this brilliant instrumental throbbing Synthy energy lo-fi science fiction around a stone-simple 2/4 rhythm. Brought to life again by the "Minimal Waves Vol II compilation released on February 2012 on Stones Throw.
7. Paco Sala - Rosa x Damascena
From the album "Ro-Me-Ro" out a couple of years back on Digitalis Recordings.
8. Muslimgauze - Low On Qat
Bryn Jones aka Muslimgauze produced something like 90 albums between 1982 and 1998, before dying for a rare blood disease. All his music was inspired by the Muslim world, in particular the Palestinian conflict and was released on limited editions cassettes
"Low on Qat" is from the album Tandoori Dog.
9. Copeland - Fit
Formerly 50% of Hype Williams together with Dean Blunt, Inga Copeland self released the album "Because I’m Worth It" came out in May this year.
10. Young Man - Wandering
I don't know much about Colin Caulfield and his project as "Young Man". The album Vol I is apparently the second of a planned trilogy and the composer dedicated this album to transition.
11. ABSTRAXION - Vampyros Lesbos
Abstraxion is the project of French cool kid Harold Boué who does innovating electronica and counts support from the likes of Erol Alkan, Simian Mobile Disco, James Holden and Caribou. From the album Temple Of The Sun.
