What a collaboration! The British singer-songwriter Lloyd Cole has always been a Cluster fan, especially of the 1976 LP “Sowiesoso”. Cole released his own heavily Cluster-influenced album “Plastic Wood” in 2001. Roedelius liked it and, over the next decade, Cole and Roedelius considered working together from time to time, but never actually got around to […]
Preceding a series of equally hyperreal videos, the forward-thinking German producers (and Raster-Noton label founders), Byetone and Alva Noto behind the experimental collaborative project, Diamond Version, created a recondite ‘mission statement’ playing out a repetitive digital message over a backdrop of dark, synthetic tones. Displaying: ‘A greater measure of confidence. A promise for life. A […]
Bandshell makes music akin to impenetrably complex puzzles. With a rhythmically intricate style both coarse & strikingly individual his curious constructions have seemingly little regard for the constraints of the dance floor. The second track on the EP, ‘Perc,’ is featured on Ben UFO’s Fabriclive 67. FREE MP3s of Caustic View by Bandshell when you […]
Asmus Tietchens‘ third LP in two years for the label Sky, In die Nacht breaks away from the composer’s self-imposed rule of brevity, although the decision to do so was imposed by the circumstances — and the label.

This falls outside of the “normal” purview of Disco Potential, but Ellie Herring is a friend of the staff and she makes interesting electronic music. Every release she’s put out has pushed her in some new direction in an unpretentious way. Even if the structure “Dead at Night” builds and breaks down in a fairly […]
The opening track from Ellie Herring’s Friday Night Laced Mix.
Wonderful melodic 70s/80s synth score rooted electronica excursions with Hip Hop related/downtempo grooves.
I’VE BEEN LISTENING TO (& CREATING) MORE ABSTRACT BEATS AND SHUFFLED GROOVES, STUFF LIKE D33J’S REMIX OF SHLOHMO’S “THE WAY YOU DO”. IT’S OFF KILTER JUST ENOUGH AND STILL REMAINS HEAVY HEARTED FOR ME. KUEDO’S “WHISPER FATE” IS THE SAME. THERE’S SOME KIND OF COMFORT IN THAT CHAOS THAT I’M HOOKED ON. IF YOU KNEW […]
