Arriving with Episode 18 of Listening Pleasures, Miori presents us with an eclectic but refreshingly uncomplicated mix of his recent synth pop and downtempo inspirations. Blending obscure talent and close colleagues with seasoned and established artists, this mix glides high above the noise and the clatter, providing you with the perfect autumnal transition into the winter months. Woody opens up during a hypnotic trance, Dandelion Council floats your speakers, and the Little Dragon Remix is sexy as hell.

Several months ago, Damon Sheeley of The Bear and the Sea started his remix of Common’s ‘I Used to Love H.E.R.‘ with the intention of slowly accumulating and releasing a handful of selected remixes as a free release; sort of a tribute to hip hop through his hazy musical filter. So here it is, Everything is Everything, after several months of late nights and drowsy sessions. Enjoy the free download!

It’s been a little while since the last Listening Pleasures as we’ve been gearing up for our second volume of our label compilation, Nueva Forma Social Club. This episode of listening pleasures is definitely an ode to our love of hip hop, grime, heavy beats, warm bass, and a nostalgic backdrop that’s a perfect soundtrack to the remainder of this beautiful summer. And with some wonderfully bucolic and nostalgic beats from The Bear & The Sea, A Gap Between, and Masmöd, along with some beautiful gems from Datahowler, Galapagoose, Big Spider’s Back, and a plethora of others, you’re sure to enjoy the hell outta this episode. So cue up your stereo, and bump some Listening Pleasures from here to the coast.

A glitch at its most basic is an intrusion into expectation. Such is the world of iameb 57’s sophomore release for Nueva Forma, Delicate Glitch. At once hard and biting, soft and lush, dark and impenetrable, bucolic and bright, the five-track EP is as intricate as its name suggests. These are the stylings of Jimmy Batista, who works brilliantly in the world of contrast. At the core of each track is a head-bobbing mid-tempo dance pulse perfect for late night summer mixes; the pads are luscious, the bass tones warm and inviting. Built on this is a precise balance of urban static, post-digital glitch, and minimalist melody that holds a cracked mirror up to the cuts he produces.
As we expected from his music after the release of Tipsy Hax last August, iameb 57 has become an intriguing writer of melodies. His skeletal leads leave much to the imagination, a fair accomplishment considering the ability of digital artists to become omnipotent over-writers. Check out the emotive sparsity of the strings on “Thelpwe” to hear how much he can say with so little.
Batista in general has a more concise approach to style in this offering. Where Tipsy Hax was more sprawling as he explored every color and option of the IDM idiom, he is here dialing into a recipe of composing that suits him well. He has distilled himself into an intimidating potency on Delicate Glitch, and this twenty minutes of bliss bodes well for his followers.
You can purchase the album exclusively on Nueva Forma’s Bandcamp.
