We often project onto people the qualities we think we perceive in them and that’s what ‘Melle' is meant to be — an embodiment of some of the projections Benjamin had. The track itself serves up a heady mix of sounds that nod to the bizarre and futuristic worlds of anime, and is predominantly inspired by classic jazz; think smooth, sleek piano melodies, subtle, fuzzy bass tones and hazy vocal sampling, all off-set by crunchy percussive textures and off-kilter rhythms.

Dubtrak, recording artist and music producer from Toronto, Canada has been delivering his unique blend of dub, global beats and trippy psytrance electronica since 2008.
Dubtrak’s music has been compared to The Orb, Underworld, Banco de Gaia and the like, but with extra organic ingredients, some exotic spices and unexpected twists.
"Out of thin air" is Dubtrak's 5th full-length release. It represents quite a departure from earlier, bass-heavy, psy-dub oriented grooves, found on the previous releases. Here Dubtrak experiments with some samples from those earlier albums but the sound goes through an ambient treatment, heavily processed into epic dream-like soundscape, as imagined through the prism of Dubtrak's other project, Intersonic Subformation.

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
