#phi047 | Atlanta-based sound junkie / producer / instrumentalist Ryan T. (tay0) makes experimentally-minded electronic music combining elements of ambient, IDM, hip hop, noise, and drum & bass / breaks. With the new EP Possible Futures, he attempts to communicate a cautious optimism about where we’re headed, using a combination of sound collage, complex ambient textures, and minimalist grooves. This record also involved more in-the-box production techniques than ever before, moving away from previous use of live drums and other traditional instruments to focus on the use of found sounds, signal processing, and sound design to create organically evolving compositions.
Bonus: This digital EP includes a high-quality music video (mp4) of the track “Possible Futures.”
#phi046 | HOLY MOLEY. It has arrived! We Roll Like Madmen’s monstrous 18-track remix compilation is here!
This album is dedicated to the Late Steven Grich (a.k.a. Mandelbrot) who was tragically murdered in the weeks after his remix was submitted for the compilation.
All proceeds for the sale of this record will be donated to The Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA) in his memory.
For the third consecutive year, we will have a vendor table at MAGFest!
What is MAGFest, you say?
“MAGFest is a music and video gaming festival run by fans, for fans. In more verbose terms, it’s an annual event dedicated to the celebration of video games and video game music. Every year offers 24-hour console, arcade, and PC game rooms, live video game cover bands, a vendors area, and guest speakers from the video game industry and fan scene. It also features a “JamSpace” available to all attendees for impromptu music performances. Numerous other events are scheduled each day.
What makes MAGFest unique is that it’s an event run by fans for fans. There are no corporate sponsors, no over-crowded showfloors, and no top-secret-behind-closed-doors showings. MAGFest is built from the ground up to be a party-like atmosphere with focus on community and fan creations, which creates an environment that no other expo or convention can ever recreate.”
