From the new Amazon Echo to Google Glasses it’s a digital world out there! In celebration of the inner cyborg in us all this week’s mix tape will bring you some electronic beats from across the globe. So plug yourself in to the closest outlet, USB port, or headphone jack and enjoy.
Idiotape – 0805. Need to get pumped? Whether it be for your next run or the commute to work power up with this Korean electric band. Listen to Melodie and Toad Song for more.
C2C – The Cell. I love French group C2C’s use of diverse sounds. The Cell uses flute and choral elements while their song Arcades brings in some baroque harpsichord action. That’s right, I said harpsichord.
Satoshi Tomiie – Thursday, 2am. Not all electronic is about an adrenaline rush listen to this atmospheric track from Japanese DJ’s latest album for the smoother side of a turntable.
Crystal Castles – Lovers Who Uncover. This Canadian duo delivers ethereal electric pop (official terminology here, guys) that’s hard to say no to. Listen to Crimewave.
Benny Benassi – No Matter What You Do. For all you horror film fans out there here’s a track by Italian DJ Ben Benassi to help you cultivate a healthy paranoia concerning your computer and psychological studies. For a less menace play Cinema.
Listen to all in a playlist here! And let me know about other artists in the comments below.
