ANDROSS 5225 sounds like the Star Fox antagonist. Anyway, this new album from Seikomart is an eight-track, twenty-minute album that incorporates synth music and classic-style vaporwave. ANDROSS 5225 is produced with a aesthetic that’s as grainy as its album artwork, featuring lots of dust-on-the-speakers and some pitch-/tempo-shifting like that used on early Business Casual releases. Choice track is “Inside”. It’s […]

DMT Tapes FL releases “Netzwerk” by Kanal Vier

I like to imagine that Kanal Vier is permanently stuck in the mid-80s, when Western consumerist culture kinda-sorta was filtering into the USSR and associated bloc states.
