3 Years Later...

Officially handed in my last project for uni. It's out of my hands now and I'm not sure how I feel. Legitimately nothing to do for a while, and I'm going to try enjoy it before becoming an adult. But where are we in terms of music 3 years down the line? Slightly different, nothing on when I got major into Warp way back when but still. Let's 'ave a look shall we?

Indie184 - Electro Magnetic (2014)

Thought it only appropriate to one of the genres that put me here in the first place. As a wide-eyed naive 15 year old, a teenage Foxbat thought that electro house would be his bread and butter for the rest of my listening days. While that may not be true there are many stonking good tunes that take me back to the dark ages of blog crawling. The break on this Peaches track around 2:10 still gets me goin'.

Viklund continues to serve up the good stuff, even after I've sunk an ungodly amount of hours into Payday they are all still my jams. This one was a bit misleading in-game, there's no real hook to it until shit hits the fan, but when it did it's sick. I'm very much liking the techno-esque turn Viklund is taking these days, here's looking forward to what else he can bring in future.

I desperately need to catch up on Vitalic, I took his LPs back into rotation for the first time in a while and goddamn is OK Cowboy an amazing record to come back to. It's hands-down one of the bets structured electro albums out there, and is still a prime source of jams nearly ten years later! Check out long time fave of mine Repair Machines:
