Surefire artist XI collaborates with Skeleton Bone on a new project entitled Ambalance, their debut EP "Cokewave" was released this week on Bandcamp as PWYC.
"From the depths of Toronto's underground music culture comes Ambalance, a decidedly left-field endeavor from bass music far-seer XI and Underdog Toronto nightlife royalty Skeleton Bone. Combining beautiful synth scoring, with brain-dance throwback rhythm programming and ample doses of melancholy. Ambalance is an experience in and of itself."
Slugabed's 'Time Team' is a concise documentation of Greg Feldwick's computational experiments analysing the directionality of hexagonal crystals. Released on Ninja Tune on 7 May (15 May in N.America), Slugabed's music is suffused with a unique mix of humour, next level production, dancefloor smarts and melancholic emotion.
Asked to explain 'Time Team', Feldwick responds that "it's to do with deep feelings about mostly inexpressible things". It is indeed an album full of feeling, warmth and humour, a remarkable feat for a record composed mainly on synthesisers and drum machines.
Single 'SEX' precedes the album on 9 April and features remixes from Ninja labelmate Daedelus and Groundislava - get a free download of the Daedelus remix on the Ninja Tune site
