I agree with Loren and Julio...  best to bring it up in a gentle manner.  Something like hey I feel like we're being distant lately is there something I did to offend?

went through a massive cd ripping phase where i added at least 3 or 4 days of music to my itunes...  fun to revisit cd's I haven't heard in 4 years or more. 

recent spins...  deepchord, yagya, maurizio

I'm more of an ipad player these days... currently hooked on Guardian Cross... basically a collectable card game thing from Square Enix.

Just played through Monument Valley - wow - now that is spectacular... you're essentially playing MC Escher drawings - some truly beautiful moments throughout...  excellent ... although really short.   Still - as a game - a work of art.

I'm looking forward to hearing this!

I'm enjoying Leverage...  not earth shattering - but Ocean's 11 meets Alias on a neatly wrapped up every episode scale. 

Chris - up until about 2 weeks ago all links went to - and all searches will pull those.  It literally just switched and Ran and Landru are working on getting their ".com" back.   A bit of a mess during a server migration.

I am so stuck in techno / minimal techno / atmospheric techno / panoramic techno etc. etc...  ;-)

Yagya - Rhythm of Snow
Maurizio - M-Series 12"'s
Basic Channel - 12"'s
Deepchord / Echospace - Coldest Season / Liumin / Vantage Isle / DC Series

spent a day on youtube listening to UR, Jeff Mills, Surgeon, Robert Hood, Carl Cox, Plastikman.

Periskop's 40 collection I've recommended a thousand times and I'll recommend it again - 40 albums - free... and the majority of them I have loved so far!

Silent Season and Dewtone label releases have also been making me very happy - streaming them on bandcamp and wishlisting them for when I have some spare change to pick them up.

At the height of LOST - especially that amazing first season - I was knee deep in the research and what is going on here? aspects of the show...  It was so brilliant.  And my wife and I stuck with it all the way through.  It stumbled now and then - (sometimes hideously bad) but as a work of art - wow they did good. 

And yes - that island would be amazing to visit.

Although - it's kind of like reading a wonderful book that is so vivid in your mind - and then someone makes a movie and it doesn't live up to the visions you had... and then the movie's feel overtakes what you saw originally... it's happened to me a couple times... :-(

chris23 - the album is released on the label Ran co-owns, AlteraOrbe.  If you look at this page you'll see the link to this album and his amazingly excellent collab with Oophoi:

Note - alteraorbe was ".com" up until very recently - it's ".es" now (spain).

Tomas, I post about music I love - on rM, on twitter, on facebook... sometimes it's people who post on rM or are on my label - often times it's not.

I really like this album.  Steve Brand is my friend - re: the Over-soul post.  I also posted about LOST with Immersion recently - which had nothing to do with music at all. I also posted to the gear thread although my advice wasn't really wanted there - and that's ok. 

I've posted how much I like your stuff now and then. 

I really shouldn't feel the need to defend myself, but I've been here since Mike opened the form well over a decade ago.  I go in phases of posting a lot here and posting a little here - depending on my time. 

This is a great release... recommended.

You might want to email Steve (I'll point him here also) - he's gauging interest on doing another special package cdr release this year on his Pioneer Light label.  His label releases are also at

Most of the series was shot in Hawaii... and humorously close to public beaches. (well all beaches are public in Hawaii technically).  Literally tons of the show was shot there - except a few bits here and there.  It's been a long while since I was nuts for Lost - man I loved that show.

I enjoyed reading that - thanks for sharing.

Got to agree on the Cell album - excellent stuff. 

I just stumbled across something last week and now I'm totally forgetting what it was.  Ack!  I can't remember.

Temporal Arc?  ;)

hahahahahahahaha  Good thing I wasn't taking a drink when I read that!  When exactly *is* that guy going to release another album!

This is from 2008... wow.  It's like a time machine!  Based on HaywoodMarchal's email address I'm not sure if he's real or not... but, just in case he is - or if anyone else wants to know... No I'm not sure what AtmoWorks is doing these days (I stopped being a co-owner in 2009).  I know John / Vir Unis is working on a new ambient album - check his soundcloud:

"A Snowfall In the Woods" and "A Recognition Occurs".  You can also hear his very fun covers of 80's songs in a very Johnny Cash sorta way.

Got to agree on the Cell album - excellent stuff.

Thomas - I'm just trying to say - wow you've got fantastic gear - sit down and use it for a bit... get to know what you have better - and then start shelling out more hard earned dollars...   that's all.
