Neon Jung – Too Many Facets

Released in the first half of 2011, the b-side on Neon Jung‘s 10-inch on Magic Wire is a track that deserves a late mention here. Ten years ago, tracks like this weren’t that unusual and were coined broken techno. This hybrid of techno and broken beat (as if that wasn’t a hybrid of everything already) was put on the map by almost forgotten names like Nu Era, Titonton or Seiji’s Opaque moniker.

If you missed the Neon Jung’s record the first time, you can still get physical copies from Piccadilly or HHV. Digital releases can be found on Bleep or Boomkat.

For more music like this, I strongly recommend 2002’s Soul in Motion compilation.

Lone – Galaxy Garden

The last time I wrote about Matt Cutler was probably when I mentioned some of my favourite albums of 2010. But now the man better known as Lone is back with some new material and you can listen to it right here!

As Matt hasn’t supplied any additional info about a possible release, I suggest you follow his activities on SoundCloud or keep the website of his label Magic Wire Recordings bookmarked.

Lone – Re-Schooling

Probably the best free downloaded posted during my one week hiatus, a track taken from Lone‘s forthcoming album Emerald Fantasy Tracks.

The album will be out on November 29, almost to the day a year after his debut on Werk Discs, and it will be release on his own Magic Wire imprint.

Grab the download over at XLR8R!
