The Egyptian Lover

Perhaps one of the most innovative companies from the old-school/electro period, Egyptian Lover’s Greg Broussard recorded a parade of singles through the mid-’80s that proved influential for many years. Inspired himself by Kraftwerk/hip-hop soundclashes like Afrika Bambaataa’s “Globe Rock and roll” and Guy Parrish’s “Hip-Hop End up being Bop (Don’t …

Jan Jelinek

Jan Jelinek recorded beneath the brands Farben and Gramm, in addition to his delivery name, and became a revered manufacturer of electronic music.

Eerie

Billing themselves like a “bi-coastal black color steel/hard rock and roll” unit, Eerie’s brooding mixture of ’70s heavy prog, bluesy stoner steel, and yes, black color steel, spots the American group inside the increasingly genre-melding pantheon of early 21st hundred years heavy music.

Carissa’s Wierd

Carissa’s Wierd formed in 1995 when Tucson natives Matt Brooke and Jenn Ghetto moved to Seattle. The pair’s hushed, plaintive vocals and complex instrumentation made the feeling on city’s music picture right away, plus they recruited pianist Jeff Hellis — not forgetting a revolving lineup of drummers and violinists — …

Farben

Beneath the name Farben, the prolific Jan Jelinek — who also operates under his own name so when Gramm — makes his most ornate, most dub-suffused, & most dancefloor-friendly materials. Moreover, his knack for simple intricacy is probably at its greatest when crafted under this guise. Between July of 1998 …

Fennesz

Vienna-based guitarist Religious Fennesz is among the many artists from the observed Editions Mego label, which releases mostly free-form ambient and experimental electronica. Comparable in a few respects to the task of Seefeel or Experimental Sound Study, Fennesz’s six-string soundscapes are both darker compared to the previous and more technical …
