Tony Oursler - Bluerialisation with Head (2007)

Another from the archives, vocoders are till the best thing ever to my ears, and this is by far the finest example of it from Vitalic's catalogue from his amazing debut OK Cowboy reminds me a little of some stuff from Bag Raiders if I'm honest, definitely check it out if you missed it the first time.

The Designer's Republic Vs. MX Norway

Another bit from Apparat, this time with added assistance from Berlin dwellers Modeselektor, together making Moderat geddit? Anyways, they do have a particular way with sound which is only amplified when they collab, this tunes just as striking as Useless Information and just as intense perhaps even more so. It has a killer main melody and Apparat on the vocals to boot. Well produced and with pleasant noises. What more could you want?

Chris Cunningham - Still from New York Is Killing Me (2010)

Apparat really made an impact on me with 2008's Walls, being only familiar with his remix work for people like Boys Noize the sounds on the LP came as quite a surprise, orchestral tinged 'IDM' style number in the vein of Venetian Snares' Rossz Csillag Alatt Született or The Flashbulb that have a great deal of power behind them. Here's an early standout.

Goldie - Crying Phase

Another art/tune combo this time, I've mentioned before Goldie's moved back into graffiti. Back in the day he was involved with Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack, their styles are quite similar now with Goldie adopting stencils into his freehand work as opposed to his old wildstyle tags, though compared to Robert's stuff Goldie definitely has more of a Blek Le Rat vibe going on with his stenciling style. Anyways, enjoy another bit from Goldie's landmark self descriptive debut. Timeless
