Re: Some musical highlights of 2022

ah thanks for sharing, I am utter useless at these end of year things because I have swiss cheese for brains. roll I'll try and drop a few things s I remember

This Artefakt ep on Delsin is absolutely solid, every track a winner...



This got rinsed a lot, the long awaited return of Duneeater on a split EP, heavy riffs....Turned To Stone Chapter V: Planet of the 8s / Duneeater


Extra special shout to Simon Huxtable whos output under his DnB Aural Imbalance alias and also his ambient stuff as Inhmost was probably my favourite stuff all year. Which subsequently led me into a wormhole of lost atmospheric DnB from the 90's..

Inhmost – Space And Awareness...this one is sublime
https://tonightsdreamrecords.bandcamp.c … -awareness


Inhmost - Seven Moves Later


Aural Imbalance – Aura Of Solitude


Also on an ambient tip, a new project from Rod Modell(Deepchord) and label founder Ario Farahani

Mystic AM – Cardamom & Laudanum

Utilizing an extensive collection of old Iranian records as source material this is a deep trip to the middle east.

Re: Some musical highlights of 2022

Cant think of any new 2022 releases in particular other than Legowelt's excellent Ambient Trip Commander


Other than that mostly old stuff, a lot of Disco - the mixes you (JayStarbo) have been posting have been a treat and the IFM Top 76 X was a great finale and def highlight of 2022!


Also bee listening a lot to to Omar S, Andreas Gehm and Heavy Metal this year!




Re: Some musical highlights of 2022

Nice one guys!

@Dumbbot: I tried to find some of Simon Huxtable's stuff on cd after you mentioning it but to no avail, seems to be hard to obtain for a normal price.. Loved the tracks you shared here.

@coae: glad to read that about the mixes!!  cool  cool

Not his best, but overal a pretty good album again by Huerco S.
Really enjjoy this neo-trance album. This is the best track
Been getting more into Skee Mask and Pool is a great album!

I think this even came out earlier than last year. Decent ambient album, with some standout tracks

Re: Some musical highlights of 2022

Thanks for all the highlights! Enjoying them.
I'm finally out of a sleep deprived state after nearly 6 years of young children taking its toll on my sleep time. Which resulted in having some more time for music and also becoming more passionate about it again. 'Surviving the day' mode pretty much numbed me totally for a few years and I barely listened to any music apart from in the car, let alone explore new music. Super happy to see that changing.

Re: Some musical highlights of 2022

I've been riding my Polish hip hop wave since a few years. So much top quality stuff there right now, in a range of styles - from grime, trap to boom bap and more jazzy stuff. Fantastic productions and lyricism. Some favourites from 2022 are these:

1988 is probably my favourite producer at the moment.

Miły Atz is more grime/bassline, but with great flow and lyrics.

Koza is a very young and up-and-coming lyrical genius.

Marceli Bober is another new talent, more introspective.

Other than that, Earl Sweatshirt keeps delivering fantastic albums


Re: Some musical highlights of 2022


Indio- Phoenix (E.R.P. Remix)


Indio - Antero (E.R.P. Remix)


Indio - Antero (Convextion Remix)

Oh and how could I forget these!! John Beltrans Indio remixes by E.R.P & Convextion.....the first vinyl records i've bought in well over 5years probably. Absolutely sensational.
