828 by GoldFFinch
It’s been a little minute since we’ve posted anything due to various reasons, let alone write on them, but that’s not particularly important. The fact that GoldFFinch have come out with their first proper release for 2013 was enough to rouse us from our slumber - this particular cut’s been floating around for a while (much like the other three cuts on their EP), but its eerie sub-bass, vocal cuts and distant synth stabs were too good for its creators to hold onto for long. Say what you want about the “4/4 bass” music circulating at the moment, but GoldFFinch are one of the few that truly do it well.
Sydney’s Hunter Gatherer imprint is one which we’re tipping to become a far more widely known name in the Australian electronic music scene. With three releases under their belt this year already (the first of which from previous Generic Cast contributor, Gardland), the turnaround and quality of the label is impressive. Nander (aka Nick Anderson) is the latest producer to release material for the budding imprint, with two tracks, ‘Steamer’ and ‘Speech.’ Both move into interesting, some what experimental territory, pushing the boundaries of Techno in the process. The mix itself contains a host of unreleased Nander bits - which we can only hope we’ll be seeing more of in the near future.
