Christian Fennesz & Ryuichi Sakamoto - Mono
" Cendre " [ Touch 2007 ]

Ryuichi Sakamoto and Christian Fennesz blend the unstructured and imaginative qualities of improvisation with the satisfying sculpture of composition. Sakamoto's piano, his style reminiscent of Debussy and Satie, perfectly complements Fennesz with his powerful blend of shimmering guitar and passionate electronics.

Kangding Ray - A Protest Song
" Automne Fold " [ Raster Noton 2008 ]

David letellier aka kangding ray was born in france and is today based in berlin, he evolved as a guitarist and drummer in various bands whose influences ranged from rock and pop to jazz before moving into electronic music. his first release is STABIL on raster-noton.

Flying Lotus - Tea Leaf Dancers [ Ray Davies mix ]- [ Warp 2008 ]

You may have heard the original version of this track on Brownswood Bubblers Two or the Flying Lotus single "Reset". This mix by Exponential Records artist Rae Davis opens up the sound and pushes the deep, bassy, glitchy, dreamy, hip hop goodness even further. The sweetness you here is the voice of Andreya Triana.

Anthony Rother - Nature
" Super Space Model " [ Datapunk 2006 ]

"The melting of electro with other genres is what makes the electronic scene and its music more interesting than ever before, even at a time where economically speaking it is difficult to proceed in music business. Some might not survive it, but I feel it is a time of innovation, sort of a consequent building of the next level - and not a time of antitraditionalism." (Anthony Rother, 2005)

MIT - Gebaut
" Coda " [ Aute Areal 2008 ]

MIT recorded their first album "Coda", Namosh Arslan produced it. Of course, the attitude is punk. Of course, the drumkit of Felix Römer is still rattling. Surely, the moog-arrangements of Tamer Özgönenc define the sound. And logically is, that Edi Winarni's crowing voice still dominates the vocals. But it sounds different!

Duchess Says - La friche
" Anthologie des 3 Perchoirs " [ Alien8 2008 ]

Montreal’s Duchess Says fuses the fury and intensity of a punk rock comprised of screaming guitars, moaning bass and relentless drumming with keyboards and the explosively sexy stylings of vocalist Annie-C. There is something breathtakingly original about Duchess Says and one listen to Anthologie des 3 Perchoirs will cement that impression.

These New Puritans - Numerology aka Numbers
" Beat Pyramid " [ Domino 2008 ]

These New Puritans' debut album arrives on a wave of excitement. Angular, brash and unashamedly intellectual - the band are seen by some as exemplifying a 'New Eccentricity' in guitar music. A movement away from luddite, retro indie. TNP sound great on paper. They cite all manner of bizarre influences – from Elizabethan magician John Dee to rap legends The Wu Tang Clan, minimalist composer Steve Reich to King William the Conqueror. They hail from the same Southend scene that spawned The Horrors and posses an accomplished producer in Gareth Jones (Wire, Liars, Einsturzende Neubauten).

Cloudland Canyon - You & I
" Lie in Light " - [ Kranky 2008 ]

It appears there is a second "kosmische musik" period in full bloom around the world at the moment, not so much "kosmische" as in "krautrock" but instead "cosmic". Just here at kranky we have the celestial symphonies of Stars of the Lid, the guitar circle prog-psych of White Rainbow, the astral folk explorations of Lichens, the cut and splice electro-motorik of Andrew Pekler, the alien space-blues of Valet, and now the half German, half American duo Cloudland Canyon who actually bring the full-on "krautrock" on.

John Carpenter - Arrival at the Library layered with Garcia, Caro & Franck - Far Away.
Booka Shade DJ-Kicks - [ K7 2007 ]

Mashup of soundtrack " Escape from New York " by of John Carpenter with Far Away from Garcia, Caro & Franck.

The Last Atlant - Going Nuts
" Cloudburst Of Colours " [ Global Underground 2008 ]

After releases on major labels such as Proton and Bonzai, The Last Atlant has also become a solid choice for the Global Underground A&R team, leading to the inclusion of his tracks tracks on several GU compilations including Afterhours, Digitized, and the GU Mixed series. .

Guillaume's debut album, "Cloudburst of Colours", reflects his shifting style and magnificently strong song writing; the record is at once eclectic and un-definable, and is built upon his preference for producing music that reflects life and personal experiences rather than aping styles or pigeon holing tastes.

Ascii Disko - Black Metal
" Alias " [ Ladomat 2006 ]

The associations that come to mind with the new album tracks, from which there is already an EP “BLACK METAL” are clear. The music’s foundations are impossible to miss: from Heavy Metal all the way to Punk Rock. However ALIAS cannot be easily put into a clichéd category. It isn’t Rock that puts on electronic clothes for a day. The Rock was once there and could be characterized as a stain that you can’t get out anymore. Electro-Rock? Why? Above everything else, it is Techno that delivers every tenor, regardless of whether it is Electro or Rock, through Techno.

Housemeister - In order to Dance [ Boys Noize mix ]
" Who is That Noise Remixes " [ All you can Beat 2008 ]

Electro, space, ghetto - techno! Housemeister doesn‘t equally shy away from pushy
dancefloor bangers, from battered experimental odysees that skilfully stumble back into perfect beat or from melancholic but comforting twilight tunes that touch base
with the darker side of the soul.

Shinichi Osawa - Star Guitar [ Streetlife DJ's DJ's mix ]
" Star Guitar " [ Data Records 2008 ]

Shinichi Osawa (大沢伸一 Shinichi Osawa), also known as Mondo Grosso, is an artist currently signed onto Avex Trax's "Rhythm Zone" label. Previously he was signed to Sony Music Japan's FEARLESS RECORDS division and released albums under the title of 'Mondo Grosso', which is is Italian for "big world". He was born on February 7, 1967.

Kap Bambino - Night Vision Ocean
" Zero Life Night Vision " [ Alt Delete 2008 ]

the incomparable French 8 bit experimental electro-punk outfit Kap Bambino is comprised of two members, laptop whizz Orion Bouvier and singer / shrieker Caroline Martial, two very different artists that collided together. Having been the most respected band internationally in this genre for three years, 2008 is when Kap Bambino’s 8bit / electro / punk sound finds mainstream popularity.
