Bart Graft - Monetary Gain (2015)
One of Graft’s classic yuppie businesswave albums. Most tracks keep a nice pace while not going all in in terms of speed. The guitar solos are a different beast, however—this dude can shred!
Chopin Scrüjah - Cheers (2018, Power Lunch Corporation)
Nice stretchy vapors and a long-form Super Mario Bros. remix. What’s not to like?
Discharge - Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing (1982)
Protest and Survive!
Nice instrumental vapor tunes from Mister Dizzy here on Fully Digital (2018, DMT Tapes FL). Muzak for imaginary shops, nightclubs, phone lines on hold.
Traitors Gate - Devil Takes The High Road (1985, Bullet)
The original companion to last week’s Fallen. A fun power metal EP where the classic hard rock influences are clear in the riffing.
trashgh0st - Ghoul’s Nite Out (2018, DMT Tapes FL)
Whoo boy, this is some classic vapor. Slow funk, some commercial tunes. Short but sweet, and with some cool remixes by TVVIN_PINEZ_M4LL and others.
Spacelounge (2018, Holloway Tapes) is the future! Chill sounds from around the new old worlds.
Grab on to your (virtual) tape deck and set sail for a glorious retrofuture. It’s gonna be a smooth ride!
Absolute high-class future funk by VENO on Intermission (2016, Business Casual). Much of it is the classic soul- and funk-tinged house you’d expect, but there’s some proper drum & bass and vapor bits too.
Zima Clearmalt - Izakaya観光客 (2018, Power Lunch Corporation)
Ah yeahhh. Why not hang out at the izakaya after work? The beer, the snacks, and the music will help the day go down.
