So, the first gift I received was from my original partner zebRAW. He sent me his favourite album Crying over Pros for no reason
by edIT. I cannot believe I missed out on this when it was released! Very layered and deeply textured electronic music that keeps the middle between IDM à la Aphex Twin and Squarepusher and downtempo breakbeat. Great production. A very involved listening experience, I'm listening to it for the third time while tapping away right now and keep discovering new layers in the music. Not an easy listen though, this is certainly no radio friendly music - which is a compliment in my book.
He also sent me two Max Cooper EP's, Stochastisch Serie and Fragmented Self pt.2, which I've only had a quick listen to for now. I think those and my car driving playlist will become very close acquaintances.
Overall I am already very pleased. I got another album in the mail today, more on that later.
Merry Xmas everybody!
