about

A Third Sun continues the style set up by Down the Sun and Up the Stream with brassy sounding drums, minimal and sustained notes with occasional hints to jazz influence.

Phuture-T opens with Ominous Maze giving equal space to breaks and a bass assembled from an overdriven contrabass clarinet. Excerpts of piano, sax, and inharmonic tones are worked around filtered out drums and change-ups.
The intro of Dave Hoax's Man from Another Planet starts with a sustained note and a muted Soul Pride break before releasing into layered breaks. The bass falls downwards, sound effects swell and fade into the background, and percussion is added on wide stereo channels.
Martsman takes on a sample collage from Cordani and Nic TVG. Field recordings are granulated into rhythmic droning pads while the main drums have a distant feel to them like a recording from a live event. Harmony is filtered in as long notes which transition into a play on repetition.
The main break in Dam Nation's The Third Man has a bizarre timbre where snares mimic loose metal sticks. Samples, recordings, and percussion are dense making an uncomfortable tone especially with a repeating orchestral swell.
Earl Grey brings the series back to Drum and Bass staples like Soul Pride, Amen, Think, and bright atmospheric vibes. This playful end is energetic and the breaks are heavily chopped letting sub fill in.

Pinecone Moonshine New Orleans, Louisiana

Run by Nic TVG, Pinecone Moonshine is a growing collection of Drumfunk (a style of Drum and Bass) and other abstract and ambient music. Majority of the tracks are melancholy collages of noise, heavily processed samples, and atmospherics driven by broken break beats and heavy sub. Free jazz, early electronics, blues, and post punk are noticeable influences in several of the pieces. ... more
