"There is so much groovy music here..." WHERE TO START???

I recommend to
start with the HLFP-Samplers (especially HLFP 04).
Here you will come to know many of the bands/musicians featured in this blog. If you like what you hear, you may check out more of their music later on.
(You may also click on the picture on the sidebar and you will find the original post with download links.)

There is also a "FOCUS ON..." section. Here you will find albums that in my opinion are absolutely great (***** = "five-stars-recordings") and that are essential listening and strongly recommended for download.

Please don't send me any more music submissions

and emails until further announcement!

I TRY to RE-UP some stuff that has been down from time to

time, but I still don't have enough time to

listen to/post much new stuff.

Mahood - The Drone Album (FR 2008/9 Work in Progress)

2 more tracks by French electronic/drone artist MAHOOD, originally posted on

"... here is the beginning a my own series of analog drones. I've recorded many of them since 1997 (first with an old 8bit "granular sintesis" software on my Mac Performa at the time), but few of them really convinced me - and what could I do with them until today? -- This first (= drone 7) ... is more a collection of ambient pieces put together than a real drone, but it's intended to be heard in a drone feeling. Some parts were played live when I played for PanSonic last year (you can hear them on the MySpace link "listen to my music"). -- Very basic recording (no mastering and basic mixing), and for the occasion the instruments were:

> Korg Polysix

> Korg Monopoly

> Sequential Circuits SixTrak

> Roland Juno 106

> folk guitar

> maracas."


"A small post of a 2nd drone I've recently made (= drone 2). Very basic recording, once more (sorry - I promise I buy a sound card for my Mac as soon as I can), so please if you try it PLAY IT LOUD.-- For this occasion, the instruments were:

> Roland SH5 (synth)

> Roland CR78 (rythm box) plugged in Korg MS20 (synth)

> Korg MonoPoly (synth)

Played, recorded and mixed much faster than "part 1" in near live conditions. And it's shorter too (8'48)." (info from MAHOOD)

Looks groovy, but the files seem to have some errors.

Download worked fine for me; gonna check the single tracks now.
Thanks for telling me.
Anyone else, who downloaded, having trouble with those tracks?

Listened to the downloaded mp3s and found them to be ok. So Dr. you might just try one more time...
