7 Tunes In 7 Days

Hospital Records is a UK drum&bass label that has been active since 1996. Recently they released Hugh Hardie's "7 Tunes in 7 Days" which is as you can imagine a collection of songs composed from the ground up, one a day, for seven days. This is Hugh Hardie's fourth release with Hospital and his latest since the 2019 full length "Shadows & Silhouettes". This album is refreshing to see as it is currently very difficult for a lot of artists  (for obvious reasons) to feel any motivation to sit down and create. Track 6 is a collaboration with Shogun Audio affiliates Pola and Bryson and...

Cherry Plum

"Cherry Plum" was first prepared as a flower essence by Dr. Edward Bach in 1935, as a remedy for the intense fear of losing control of one’s mind and, if I may,  couldn't we all do with a bit of that shit right now. This cute little release was dropped in 2018 by  ahiru あひる an electronic artist from The Netherlands who specializes in downtempo, chillwave beats and piano compositions. They are a member of the "nemuri winter" sleepy beat netlabel & collective. Drift away with these six stunning tracks. Sounding like the score to and early Makoto Shinkai feature, this album is filled with...

Better, Lost

Better, Lost

"Better, Lost" is the new full length release from Ireland's Breakbeat Heartbeat. 9 luminescent tracks built from acoustic guitar, authentic chip synths, amen breaks and chopped up vocals. These elements are never juxtaposed against each other the way you might expect but they are instead sewn together in a strikingly succinct manner. The tracks "Vega" and "It's Not The Same" were originally released on the "Spacetunes = Win" and "Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 7" compilations respectively, published of coarse by Chiptunes = WIN. She also contributed the single "Home" to the compilation "Super Duper Digi-Punk Vol.5" published here at KOF.  It has been a...
