Imaginary Softwoods: Gold Fiction Loop Garden

Three years after its initial release, ‘Gold Fiction Loop Garden’ finally receives a widespread release via Field Records – the perfect soundtrack to a day spent foraging for mushrooms.

Albrecht La’Brooy: Healesville

‘Healesville’ is pitched as an album to soothe the soul in troubled times and it undoubtedly meets its ambitions. It is the pause button for modern life, an essential piece of augmented reality that rubs at the fraying caused by every day anxiety.

Ewan Jansen & Jimpster

With Ewan Jansen’s latest number freshly out on Jimpster’s Freerange Records, this felt like the perfect occasion to ask Ewan for a mix. Used to performing live exclusively, he opted for a distinct way of doing it: Ewan selected a solid batch of cuts – including a lot of unheard gems from his vaults, for Jimpster to pick from and smoothly weave together. Pull out the shades, beach towel and sunscreen, summer vibes are on.

Clark: Kiri Variations

After amassing a discography crammed with ravey goodness, left-field producer Clark turns on a dime to deliver ‘Kiri Variations’, a long-player bearing more similarity to baroque chamber music than anything compiled for a dance floor.

Leif continues to provide a diversion from the mainstream crash and thud of banal house music and although ‘Loom Dream’ misses an opportunity to showcase an alternative to that world, it’s still an imaginative piece that you should pick up, go back to and revel in its indigenous beauty.

Dots: Dots

Dots sits firmly at the dead serious, black-turtlenecked end of this scale. It’s a shimmering exercise in restraint, poise and cognitive infiltration; never overtly loud or intense, yet incredibly effective at worming its way to the depths of your psyche.

Raving under the Midnight Sun: Solstice Festival 2019

In a world of endless iterations of soulless festivals filled with advertising and mass-marketing, cliches and tired stereotypes, when something like Finland’s brand new festival Solstice emerges you’re a fool not to grab it while it lasts.
