The most recent track here is #7 Replicant by Vektorspace from their 2023 album Technophilia. (The title of which I misremembered as "Technophile" while reading off the tracklist, sorry about that). The more I listen to and play pieces from Technophilia the more I like it. Thick modern electro, definitely worth a look if you like Replicant (or the previous Vektorspace track I played back in mtt308).

Two tracks from Obergman's 2022 album Nocturnal Detour feature here: #8 End Of An Era and #12 Seemingly Coincidental. Cryptic spooky stuff, similar to the mood/style of a lot of the other Brokntoys releases. I've been meaning to play more from this release for ages - it's really good - but for whatever reason this is the first time I've gotten to a place where I feel it makes sense. The title track Nocturnal Detour is my favorite on the release but the whole thing is great & worth a listen.

One last piece I'd like to highlight is #14 Mind Travel Method by Gosub from their excellent 2007 album Watchers From The Black Universe. This one's been a favorite of mine since I first heard Megaphysics play bits of it. The Rain Comes Down, Last Night At The Stardust, Blind World, Mind Travel Method, all great tracks. I've been meaning to pick up the digital version of the album (linked above) as it includes a couple extra tracks. Check it out if you haven't heard it before.

That's all I have for notes this week I think. As always if you hear something you like then the tracklist links above will take you to where you can hear & purchase the relevant album. I'll be back next week (hopefully on Thursday) with another mix, something slower. More electro.
