Mariel Ito – Decryptor EP

★★☆☆☆ = Eh, fine

Sounds like?

Tech House

Moods

Inspires dark small club vibe

Thoughts

I wanted to like this more than I did. I like tech house overall just never engaged me in any real way

Mandar – String Theory

★★☆☆☆ = Eh, fine

Sounds like?

Whatever electro

Moods

Filler

Thoughts

It's fine electro but not really feeling it overall. ‘Poison words’ is a bit better but not much happening here.

Ross From Friends – Family Portrait

★★★☆☆ = Good!

Sounds like?

Lofi house is a fitting genre name

Moods

Refreshingly original small club

Thoughts

Digging this, had it on repeat straight off the bat. I've seen his name a lot recently so I think he's pretty hyped. Serves as a good middle ground between John talabot and stone's throw though the second half tapers off in quality.

It's a brainfeeder release – all their stuff is worth checking out.

Avalon Emerson – Narcissus In Retrograde

★★★☆☆ = Good!

Sounds like?
Intense techno

Moods
Accessible Berghain

Thoughts
Biting and varied, hits with a booming intensity, reminds me of a more accessible version of Surgeon.

‘Why does it hurt’ is a bit boring, the rest is strong.

Chloé – The Waiting Room

★★☆☆☆ = Eh, fine

Sounds like?
Dark diy electro with rock instrumentation

Moods
Can’t remember

Thoughts
A pretty OK uneven record. I like the longer rock numbers like it’s Sunday and brashov. Other tracks felt drawn out and not very strong.

I’ll credit her with creating a distinct character here. Feels raw and soulful; elements often missing from electro.
