JORDAN F.

Let me tell you about the epiphany I had when electronic music first opened up for me: it is not robot music, it is human music. What?

Well permit me one outlandish claim:
For all the futuristic designs, talking computers and synthetic sounds: the best electronic artists are the always ones who do what computers can’t – harnessing all the inhuman aesthetic to highlight the humanity behind it.
*canned crowd gasp*

I know it sounds all philosophy-nerd to type it out, but think about it. Right? Daft Punk are the classic example of this working (identity-less robots from the future making visceral, organic disco?) – but today I present to you Sydney’s Jordan F in the very same sentence.

Falling like Diamonds‘ (bottom of the post) was totally the correct choice as a single from his new Freefall EP – that could respectably rep some good 80’s retro in a club set anywhere – and plenty of cooler blogs justifiably jumped on the teaser last month. But now we have the whole thing and I’m especially wobbly over ‘The Void‘. Just listen to this thing:

Man. That raw instrumental mix, that throaty analog heartbeat, that shimmery digital cloud, and all the timing just loosened off enough to get me chair-swaying every. single. time.

I guess I would put it somewhere in the void (ah? ah?) between Kavinsky (Fr) and Todd Terje (Nor), but it’s different – and very human indeed (Edit – just saw Acid Stag beat me to the Kavinsky reference, but I do surely agree). Kudos, Mr F. You will find me over on his facebook compulsively refreshing the page until some live dates appear.

OCTOBER ’12 MIX

Ok, so slowly we’re getting back on track. This here is the October Mixtape, chockablock full of my fave tunes of October. Some absolute stunners in here – the Lower Spectrum EP was one I kept on coming back to, as was Tame Impala‘s record, Collarbones‘s second full length, as well as the Love Migrate disc. Then there were those big massive tracks – that Hermitude remix of Presets‘ ‘Ghosts’. MY GOSH.

All of the tracks are pretty excellent…and I think it’s one of the better tapes so far.
