ScissorMix Vol. 12: Summer Electronic Mix

This ScissorMix hits on a ton of different electronic notes, but stays in that sweet 115 to 125 BPM range, keeping things moving along with a nice pace. As usually, melody is the star here, and there’s no lack of bigness with the likes of amazing tracks from DJ Koze, Osborne, Disclosure, Classixx, Bonobo, Baths and the like. A ton of usual SK people on this mix and a few things that may have eluded your radar thus far.

New EP from Brooklyn’s Home Video just dropped and while I will readily admit the Radhiohead comparisons are warranted, I still think the band is one of NYC’s most underrated.

The Thrush sounds like a mixtape made by the dude down the hall with the ill Krautrock collection who’s dating a dancer into Afrobeat and old UK downtempo.

Max Tundra

Few, if any, current producer/musicians out there manage to be as dense and melodically satisfying as Max Tundra, unapologetically birthing electronic pop so saccharine that it reminds of you of your mom’s favorite 90s tracks from Lisa Stansfield and Desiree.

I actually haven’t heard the original yet, but it’s always exciting when a Four Tet remix actually hits the mark and this one surely does.

Minotaur Shock

… Other maverick online music models have resulted since (like NIN’s free record), but few have the charm of the recent 4AD release from David Edwards, aka Minotaur Shock.

He DJs as Egg Foo Young here in the city, has done production work for Bonde Do Role and — most importantly — is one of the first artists I can think of who has included written explanations of his instrumental song titles in the CD.
