Vectorfray – Pentbüt

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Here’s another release of early Vektroid, and we’re talking really early. Like, 2005 early. Pentbüt1 came out before Vektroid was even a thing – hell, before Vektordrum was even a thing – back when Ramona Xavier produced music as Vectorfray.2 This is German dance music akin to that on labels such as Kompakt and Mille Plateaux back in […]

For a while, these earlier albums have been unavailable through “official” channels from Xavier herself, with most access being through *ahem* questionable mirrors and sources on the Internet. But last week, Xavier […]

No Problema Tapes releases “Mathématikoi” by White Sample

Mathématikoi is this neat little mix of glitch music, vaporwave, and techno out on No Problema Tapes. The album was recorded live in-studio at Infinite Waves Studio in Chile. If you’ve been looking for old-school techno music with a hint of modern production flourish, then Mathématikoi is a pretty good place to go. Start with “Une Année Sidérale” and “Trigonometry,” […]
