Anchoret – Stigma

September 1, 2013 in Singles

Anchoret Stigma Kiss And KryBack in April, I singled out Anchoret’s mix of Loz Goddard’s Headcase EP for special praise… now here he is again under his own steam with this single for Kiss And Kry Records.

There are four mixes of Stigma to choose from. The original’s an instrumental cut blending deep, tech and progressive elements, Loz Goddard’s remix is the glitchiet, most wonked-out disco-house you ever heard (seriously), M-Capio takes us into more dark n’ driving techno territory, but the standout for me I think is the James Dax & Ninjutsu Remix, which opens with warbling, Carpenter-esque analogue synths and then mixes up the tech, prog and Italo elements until you come out dazed but smiling eight minutes later.

Out: This week

About: Kiss And Kry seem to mostly live on Facebook, or you can find Anchoret himself, AKA Joe Zazini, on Soundcloud.

Loz Goddard – Headcase EP

April 22, 2013 in Singles

Loz Goddard Headcase EP 5 And Dime RecordingsThree on a very deep tip for ya today, starting with this latest from the ever on-point 5 And Dime.

Manchester’s Loz Goddard is the man at the controls, serving up two originals: A Long While, eight minutes of deep, proggy mellifluousness, and Room 101, which is, er, eight and a HALF minutes of deep, proggy mellifluousness with a spoken vocal (concerning matters environmental, as far as I can make out) drifting in and out of the mix.

Remix-wise, Driftwood and Louis Marr essentially offer variations on a theme for the latter, though Driftwood’s rub just edges it for me, having a slightly darker undercurrent. Anchoret’s remix of A Long While is the standout of the whole package to these ears though, being a more space-y, tripped-out ride altogether.

Out: This week

About: You can find Five And Dime here, here and here (Soundcloud, Facebook, web). This is their 20th release, BTW so well done Coloradan chaps.
