Wow … who is this ?!
Just happened to come across this album on iTunes and was pleasantly surprised how awesome it is .. very atmospheric with tinges of ambient, trip-hop, minimalist, techno .. all around great
Encouraging to know someone still makes music like this. It would be insulting for me to try to assign a genre to it. The album is experiential. You'd deprive yourself if you just bought a few individual songs. This one seems to be meant for listening straight through..Start to finish. Excellent.
I stumbled upon this album by accident, what a great find. I normally listen to electronic with minimal vocals and prefer longer cuts. This album defies being put in a box. Love the deep background beat, odd vocals, world sound. So fresh. If you like this check out the single Blackstar by David Bowie. It may also resonate. Please keep this stuff coming. There must be others out there who “do more than dance”.
Blond:ish is the duo of Anstascia D'Elene Corniere and Vivie-Ann Bakos, two DJs and producers originally from Montreal, whose smooth, sunny, often vocal-driven tech-house tracks can be introspective, sentimental, and slightly trippy. The pair met at the 2007 Winter Music Conference in Miami; soon after, they established a DJ night called Blond:ish at Montreal's Cherry Nightclub, and began producing music under the name in 2008. Their career took off after they relocated to London in 2010; by 2012 they had released EPs on Kompakt and Get Physical Music, in addition to remixes for Pete Tong and Tomas Barfod. The year 2013 saw the release of further EPs for both labels, as well as remixes for Kate Simko and Maya Jane Coles. In 2014 Blond:ish mixed the second disc of Flying Ibiza, Vol. 1, the first of which was mixed by Audiofly. They also remixed Depeche Mode's "Should Be Higher" that year. The duo's debut full-length, Welcome to the Present, appeared on Kompakt in 2015; instead of being an album strictly composed of dancefloor cuts, it was a surprising detour into moody downtempo excursions, with several tracks echoing the Orb's most psychedelic moments. ~ Paul Simpson
