Various Artists - Discordian Dreaming 6 (Harmonious Discord)

Every year at this time the Harmonious Discord label issues a new installment of its Discordian Dreaming series which gives a preview of what the label has in store for the year to come. This sixth annual issue is another superb collection of sonic sensations exploring the outer reaches of the musical frontier and showcases arising talent on the HD radar. Label heroes such as Vegenaut, Signal Deluxe, Smight, and Wirik join newer discoveries Ill76, Gians, El Natured, The Hermans, Joshua Kynd, and Christian Barbuto for a fantastic assemblage of diverse and boundary-stretching electronic sounds. Warehouse techno, moody downtempo, swingy tech-house, and deep, atmospheric machine music are all examples of the styles that can be found here though, in true Harmonious Discord fashion, more than a few of the tracks blur the lines between those designations. Dive in … there’s plenty to take in with a quality quotient that aims to impress.
