Robot Koch - Follow Birds

Really feeling this album lately. Finest Ego Records and [a personal favorite] Project: Mooncircle Records collaborated on a hefty 33 track compilation, making this the fifth release in this series. To be honest, there’s more artist I don’t recognize on the compilation but it doesn’t matter considering how consistant the song quality is. Tons of diversity and easily some of the best beats to date. Pick this up.

The influences vary from Jazz records, video games, Hip Hop, Drum ‘n’ Bass and Techno. But are there two different camps clashing here? Retro vs future, mountain village vs urban center, winter vs summer…”-Project: Mooncircle

Malte - A Brumal Tale

Here’s a mix by Finest Ego’s producer and writer, Malte. Recorded for WildstyleMag podcast series. It’s a lovely blend of hot music! have a listen.

official description :

This is the soundtrack of an old, eastern European animated winter’s tale. Unfortunately, all the original film rolls have been lost during a heavy winter storm and no copies could be found to date. Therefore, all we have left is this sonic document and the listener is left to imagine their own fairy tale while listening. 

Dies ist der Soundtrack eines alten, animierten osteuropäischen Wintermärchens. Unglücklicherweise sind die original Filmrollen während eines schweren Wintersturmes verloren gegangen und bis heute konnte keine Kopie gefunden werden. Aus diesem Grund gibt es nur noch dieses akustische Dokument und es bleibt dem Zuhörer überlassen, sich während des Hörens sein eigenes Wintermärchen vorzustellen. 

100% Vinyl, Artwork by Anila.

Seeing fresh and new directions in creative projects so early on makes this year seem very promising.
