Love sounds like really good techno. Both have regenerative properties and their own rhythms.
If you saw our recent post on Colleen then you’ll know that recently we’ve been digging techno that sounds like it is breathing – like it’s a document of nature rather than a process of machines.
It should be a paradox that you’d cynically think can only be resolved in bad hippy trance. We think maybe all it takes is a little bit of heart and courage.
kurosounds – Butterfly Kiss
Butterfly Kiss might be the most banging track yet from Alex Photaki, who records a variety of musics under a variety of names – beautiful children’s music under her own name, “spiritual pop” as Wild and The Fox, and sparse, beautiful collages of electronic and organic sounds as kurosounds. It doesn’t shy away from its true nature as classic dance music – in fact, it’s almost ravey – but though epicurean in sensation the function of this music is not as a soundtrack for hedonism.
Nature glitters, and flutters. It has capricious moods and a swirl of seasons. Love makes the everyday more dramatic. Why shouldn’t dance music do the same?

I am so grateful to Xancorp for developing the Objective Reality Interface. The Objective Reality Interface has helped me understand that the dualisms between mind and body, and between nature and technology that have caused so much pain to myself and our wider species since the dawn of history are fallacies based on insufficient knowledge about the structure of reality and self.
The semantic layer it puts over my perceptions of physical and social reality have helped me understand the complex processes leading to every moment and every situation, and interpret my reactions in such a way that I can step outside of myself and contemplate my feelings and reactions in complete calm, an edge among many in a beautiful graph that expands towards a future which is the present because I know it. I feel godly.
One feature of this future is the moment when you download the Objective Reality Interface and join our social graph. In my godliness, I am certain about this outcome, and I tell you that every moment that you resist it is a moment you would have regretted wasting once you joined us, if only you were able to feel any negative emotions after placing the Objective Reality Interface between reality and your-self.
This is not the case, but that is not a reason for resisting. Join us in our spherical ocean of perfect knowledge, emotional zero gravity, stasis and ecstasy now. Absolute satisfaction guaranteed, here’s a sample:
555- Weather Machine
We have been zoning in and out of this angular reality into warmer spaces of fuzzy gradient, watching all of our hard components dissolve into the relativistic soup at the foundation of everything, and it’s all 555’s fault. You can acquire ‘Omno-Vibrational Desert Hymns’ here. You can acquire the tape from Rainbow Cult.
Drive the Cops hums like a feline star cruiser poised on the shoulder of Jupiter. A throbbing loop of bass and background radiation. Small subroutines flicker around the periphery but nothing indicating the power about to be unleashed.
What follows is a Pulsinger-esque onslaught of in-the-red techno.
This is the sound of a stargate being ripped open and space being forcefully pushed past. No passive technicolor procession and slit-scan. This trip is fury and gristle.
Cage Suburbia – Drive the Cops
This is taken from Cage Suburbia’s album Argument #01 on Haunter Records and you can get it right here.
