ItalTek, in my opinion, is not only a great producer, but also embraces the idea that free music and paid music can live side by side without great stress. In testament to that (If you don’t already know his amazing Net-Lab releases), here is the new homepage for his self-publishing label AtomRiver, featuring a free download of Lightning Fields as well as links to buy the physical and MP3 releases (below).

So show your support for the Emo Junglist!

Noise Pollution

I love John Cohen. His eponymous release on Net-Lab is awesome and this one is even better… I love his music so much, that I couldn’t think of a single thing to say about this release that didn’t sound massively biased (we’re in Dead Fader together) or just plain sycophantic. So instead, I pasted (below) a badly translated paragraph from a review by French musician and writer Stephane Obadia [aka Nudist with Laptop (Wrong Music) and Rob Steady (Net-Lab) – if you fancy your french, the full review is linked below.

Subjektive

From the Skull Disco / Slaughter Mob / Ital Tek corner of the dubstep universe comes this slice of crisp sheen crafting bass. From the traditional sounds spawns a heavy sub-bass complemented by scratchy percussion and eerie effects. A familar vibe of ancient Tokyo meets the mean streets of deepest East London, as gongs clang, and bass warbles. The tone is the academic coldness of IDM and MAX/MSP explorations meets Dubstep’s driving womping animalness, perfectly captured in Growler & Bruiser. I think potentially Ireland’s future contender for a spot held long by Barry Boxcutter Lynn as Ireland’s leading dubstep talent.
