I was able to see Natasha Kmeto open for Beacon at Kilby Court a few months ago and I was amazed at how solid her live performance was. Impressive voice, presence, and show. I picked up her albums, Crisis and Inevitable, on cassette and had a good chat with her. Lovely.
The Range is a relatively new artist to the bigger electronic scene, and Potential has put his work another rung or three up the ladder. One of the show’s favorites of the year, it’s got a fascinating, dynamic vibe throughout. Sometimes it has a House hint, then a UK Bass vibe, and, well, just listen…
Moderat is the collaboration between Apparat and Modeskeletor, whose third release “III” has made a big impression on the show this year. A great blend of expert electronic production and solid vocals, hooks, and the like. One of my favorites of 2016 so far.
This duo called Bob Moses, who I’d previously thought to be a single artist, have really been on the radar lately. They performed recently in the studios of KEXP and were a relatively high-profile act at SXSW 2016. I encouraged a few people to listen and they were very enthusiastic about the sound.
Do check out their release called Days Gone By on the Domino label: here
This year SomaFM is hosting the Nerd New Year broadcast on DEF CON Radio.
The 2015 edition, the eighth, is another 8-hour dive into some of the best artists, releases, and tracks of 2015, but is definitely far from comprehensive. With nearly 1400 top-ranked tracks during 2015, it was a bit of a task to distill the essence of the year into 8 hours and eight pieces, but, once again, it’s here.
Playlists for each hour will be posted as a companion to the Mixcloud upload for each part, which will start the first Wednesday of January and be weekly through February.
Thank you again to SomaFM for their help and to you, the listener, for…listening.
