PODCAST EP.009 – XJ

Podcast_XJ_cover

Joining us on the Hi-Fi: XJ. Boomarm brother XJ. The man hails from just outside of Paris, France. He runs a fantastic blog, makes killer beats, mixes, and ink drawings. This episode is a deep voyage into the outer worlds of real sound and its reflection through the underground. Heres a tracklist and summary in the man’s own words… Big up XJ.

“Its subway tunnels of Paris on line 7, It’s a forbidden area but its one of those rare places to be at peace. The cycling lamp stuff, warm tunnels during winter nights. The lights station coming…Waking u up. As the sun.
Most of the selected tunes featured in this podcast have travelled already, from the speakers to our ears (referring to Guglielmo Marconi’s conception of frequencies: Marconi became convinced that sounds once generated never die, until we can no longer perceive them. The sound generated is never lost , they just become fainter as each second passes). After all, it’s like offering a backdoor to escape daily madness on our earth, and bring our attention back from convoluted mainstream and full entertainment that Huxley was describing in “Brave New World”… Music today is a very difficult thing to approach if you’ve just landed on our planet, you’ll be submerge with tons of law “quality” “music”.Lo-Fi is very much Hi-Fi to me, if we’re talking about fidelity to the Music. Thats why Dem Hunger/Wanda Group is featured more than once, thats why Steve Reich is also there with Gil Scott-Heron in a street interview i ripped online. Even if it sounds messy ‘n crispy, loud or distorted. I just hope i made it enough for transport purposes…” – XJ

PODCAST EP. 008 – Nathaniel Young

EP.008-NathanielYoung

Joining us on the Hi-FI: Nathaniel Young. I have recently discovered the music of Nathaniel Young AKA – FLORAL. His recent release for Purr Tapes dropped my jaw and gave me a newly needed jolt of hometown pride. This Portland, Oregon native is on his way, making some visionary rhythms of splintered dense patterns of kicks and percussion, and tons of beautiful noisy layers. Gorgeous stuff.. Dont sleep on his music!! Cop his recent release, and also check out his collective BLANKSTAIRS, they too have a deep level good release just out. Dig in. Big up Nathaniel.
