Mid-120s electro and IDM (or perhaps "electronica" is a better term here). Four tracks from CPU Records, a couple from Binalog Productions, and four or five old '90s pieces.

Tracks 5, 6, 8, and 16 (Polytopes by Nullptr, Projections by Silicon Scally, Keyhole by Mikron, and Tellarium Snow by Plant43 respectively) are all on the famous label CPU Records. Silicon Scally's Projections EP is my current favorite of those four releases. It reminds me of his album Dark Matter on Satamile, an album I'm a huge fan of. Strong recommendation for Projections (and Dark Matter if you haven't heard it).
Double Density by Bitstream is from their legendary Monolith EP, which I believe is Bitstream's first release. It's a short song, 2 minutes 50 going by my local recording. I love its atmosphere and its quacking acid synth line. I noticed while looking it up on discogs that both the song Monolith and Double Density were re-released by Vinyl Underground on the Union EP last year. It's a different version of Double Density, though, longer and lacking the acid line. Monolith was previously available only on the (limited edition) Monolith EP and Swayzak's Groovetechnology v1.3 compilation, so I'm glad that Vinyl Underground have reissued it.
I wish I had played T.Power's A Large Grey Area longer; that's another great, overlooked track.
And that's all I want to say this week. I think I'll do some 80 / 160 stuff next time. Downtempo, footwork, drum & bass, something like that.
