More stuff about the music and stories on this weekâs Melodica.
In tune with the Melodica aesthetic, covering a broad range of exciting, inspiring, beautiful new music from electronica to house to experimental.
THAT FUZZY FEELING: SLIME – INCREASES EP
Slime is Will Archer who, according to Bleep, is a young producer playing with genre in an attempt to leave behind fixed ideas about categorisation and style. So let’s try and put him in a category with Nic Jaar and Jamie XX, experimentalists informed by club music, dubstep, krautrock and indie but not tied to any style or scene. In other words, Slime makes proper new modern music for the post everything world. It’s weird but it works. And there’s a picture of a horse on the cover.
DARLING FARAH – EXXY EP
Darling Farah was born in Detroit, lives in the United Arab Emirates, and makes surprisingly deep techno and is, inevitably, nineteen and rather talented. He’s moving to London soon so expect to hear more from this guy.
HENRY OAKLEY – MELLOWMARSH
More deep techno that will work well at 5am in a club but also sound brilliant at 5pm on a beach, or any time at a festival from Henry Oakley. Falk label head Al Calavicci calls it “something special for the field dwellers out there.”
DEEKIE – BRICKENDEN EP
Deekie are a quirky part time indie band who have become Melodica favourites. They also made some lovely jingles for the show featuring voice and melodica. Their latest EP is as downbeat and eclectic as ever. You can hear it on their Bandcamp page.
