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…

Here are the most influential albums on Nerd Show in 2014: Hail Mary Mallon – Bestiary The “other” dynamic hip-hop supergroup/duo to release an album this year (that we cared about).

Synkro’s new album Acceptance, has been one of my favorites this year and this video goes the track of the same name justice. It’s mesmerizing…
Another video from Lorn’s Ask the Dust:
I’ve been impressed, even stunned, with Lorn’s latest Ninja Tune release called Ask the Dust. It’s dense, heavy, thick, and unyielding in its intensity. Weigh Me Down is the latest track with a single, and the video accompanying it is something else.
