I haven't heard it either, though thanks for recommendation. Will definitely check it out.

Yeah man. I try to mention it as often as I can to as many people as possible. It’s one of the best albums of the decade in any genre.

Koze is weird because he’s a house artist, so there’s an element of redundancy in the genre and people who listen to one song or a snippet might think he’s just like a million other artists, but he just infuses his work with personality and texture and different, seemingly incompatible moods. I legitimately think he’s he most interesting artist in electronic music. Nobody else makes music that is quite as consistently evocative of actual human emotions. It’s whimsical and sad and sometimes a little bit scary and sometimes just plain dumb fun, but somehow it all feels like Koze.

You deserve to own “Amygdala” and have it in your life. The beats and sounds will seep into your consciousness and twist your shit up.

I guess he’s similar in some respects to artists like Todd Terje, Nosaj Thing and KidKanevil, but he’s just on another level altogether. And I really enjoy those artists.

Listen to that “Joe Gurt” remix I linked up yonder ^^ ... not a proper Koze song, but check it out, then listen to the Superflu original, and I think you’ll see what I mean about him infusing everything he touches with a certain... Koziness.

Sales pitch over.

So Nicolas Jaar (aka the second most interesting artist in electronic music next to Koze) just dropped a new album under his A.A.L. alias. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t know about it until Pitchfork released a blurb about how “Nicolas Jaar just released an album and nobody noticed.” But oh well.

More spunky than the excellent “SIRENS” or “Space is Only Noise” ... more house-y too.

I recommend it!

A.A.L. (Against All Logic) - “2012-2017”

”Jo Gurt” (DJ Koze remix)
Dj Koze ft. Matthew Dear - “My Plans”

Get with it man.


Either I was replying to the wrong post or ... something ... cos yeah, that EP doesn't sound like Basic Channel. :confused:

But I'm not hugely into the DJ Koze stuff I've heard, which, while clever, seems more suited to the car or the home stereo than the dancefloor - which is where I think all House music must ultimately be judged.

Definitely more headspacey tjank dance-floory. He’s not house in a traditional sense. Way more cerebral and intimate than that. Though I’m sure his shit would sound good on molly or whatever.

He was more overtly dancey early on, but I think he’s too weird and quirky and ultimately experimental to be confined by dance music structures and such.

seriously though.....the second round is so so great, they've reached this incredible sort of plateau where everything has evened out and they're operating entirely in their own idiom. stunning.

seeing them here in tokyo in june and haven't anticipated a show this much for a real long time.

They're playing a two-hour set, every Thursday, during April. The most recent set is played (on repeat) 24/7, and you can purchase high quality recordings of each set on Ae's website.

Why didn't you degenerates tell me last year that Kara-Lis Coverdale had released Grafts (probably her best yet)? When I found out, the gold vinyl was sold out and I had to pay 50 bucks to a Discogs seller for the damn thing.

I don't think they serve my brand of "electronic music" in this pub. Check please!

Severian 05.11.2018 06:11 PM

Everyone go and listen to the new DJ KOZE album

don't like to argue with people on the internet cause there is no real use but what you write is not really true. or lets put it this way: it's complete bullshit.
music comes down to taste, but koze's music is just way too overrated and this is kinda pissing me off. its a very well produced album, and it's great, but definetly not as good as you put it.
there's so many lesser known artists that make equally good (or better ?) house/techno (whatever electronic dance music), but are not praised by the press, so most people who don't dig deep, don't hear about them. and that is a shame.

and well. pick up is one of the lamest tunes of this year. let's say, YOU had written that tune in yr bedroom (and lets be honest here, that is possible cause that's just 3 loops and a vocal sample), NO ONE on earth would give a flying fuck about it, cause that sound was so overdone between '96 and '98, that no one wanted to hear another filter house toon in their entire life ever again...
