January Blues

Hello all, it's 2016! And don't you worry nothing much has changed, I'm still your resident selector with a penchant for Cyberpunk sci-fi and moody electronic sounds. So let's start this shindig.

Miwa Ogasawara - Nacht (2010)

Never a lot to do in the winter unless you like naff telly. So instead I revisited my favourite gang of bounty hunters the Bebop crew, the OST is well known for it's frequent jazzy bits but there's a good selection of genres in there too. Here's a long time favourite to warm you up.

I know I dumped a load of Hotline Miami stuff for the year end track dump, but it's still super good. And it's not all frantic doorkicking synthwave neither, have a surprisingly introspective addition to the soundtrack from Scattle.

And finally Wisp's reworks of Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2 make a reappearance. I haven't given them nor the original LP a listen in a long while, but I'm feeling it right about now. It hits a nice mid point between the ambient techno of 85-92 and the all out ethereal of Volume 2 that's quite refreshing.
