  1. Wait, DanielSL is a WATMMer? Makes total sense in hindsight.
  2. Thought you'd like this. It fits weirdly into this nostalgia/weirdo/fragile corner. Releases May 16th, 2020 Batfinks became part of the Caoutchou family since he contributed the track 'Shamalaalaa' for the second Rubber Beats compilation back in '09. 5 years later we released 'Bibobleyboo' on our label and early 2016 he sent us new material for an album named 'Mosisac'. Later that year we heard the sad news that Ste had passed away. 'So If You Want' is the lyrical counterpart of the dark, at times unsettling 'Mosisac', and this compilation is a collection of mostly unreleased Batfinks tracks. He had been testing , with 'lathe cut vinyls', three albums, Dolly, False Fades and Wasps At Home. His family decided to carry on having a few albums made for his friends, later uploading them to Bandcamp. 'Suzy Said' and 'All the Same' are on the albums because Ste' had originally released them on cassettes. 'So If You Want' is unmistakably Batfinksesque, but we also discover another side of the multi-faceted artist. We've heard him sing before, but never on ten tracks in a row - and on such a serious note. Quirky. Multi-instrumental. Eclectic. Absurd. Touching. Out there. Godspeed, wherever you are. Many thanks and an incredible amount of respect to Chris for contacting us about these unreleased tracks.

  3. I got this pushed into my hands at my local record store because I purchased a B12 record and I'm very thankful for it. Lovely release (from a fellow Belgian nonetheless)!
  4. been raving to this for two days
  5. Yass queen I love this one too also most of Chris Cunningham but I think that's a given. also weirdcore. some others:
  6. Reading the JJBA manga right now (for parts that aren't animated yet) and damn part 7 is amazingly good. Also some recent recs: Attack On Titan s3.2 and s4 is nuts. One million ways to fuck it all up and it didn't. Props Baccano! is v nice, good story - too bad it's so short Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu is the only thing I'd ever give an 11/10. Can't overstate how good it is. Deffo the best anime I've ever seen + maybe among my top of fiction altogether Kill La Kill very much form over content (story is kinda lame and very stretched out tbh) but what form. First scene is a good indicator of what is to come. Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu (and follow-up Sukeroku Futatabi-Hen) is a brilliant and emotional story. Loved it. Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei also super great
  7. It sounds good but I like his 'splattered beeps' style more. Also missing some melodic parts.
  8. you're into the wrong genre then, I'm afraid
  9. Shameless self promotion: https://neocortex.bandcamp.com/album/hard-gaan-en-strak-staan Good stuff: https://stazma-the-junglechrist.bandcamp.com/ shit I have TONS but I'm so lazy. Check out Suck Puck Recordz, they're all the craze right now in breakcore.
  10. Pff, underwhelming single. This man is the embodiment of hit or miss. If it slaps, it slaps. If it doesn't, it doesn't.
  11. Circle era. I.e. Oversteps & Move of Ten. I got into AE when they came out and I kept loving them for some reason. If I may include Quaristice I'd gladly do that. QR-code era (Exai, L-Event) also very dope. All of it hits the spot for just intense & emotional enough without being too abstract.
  12. Flemish here, can confirm that this is just some dumb mistranslation definitely not meant the way it was. LOL @ 'he thinks of us as horses', geez. I've been following him (in interviews and stuff) for a few years and my Kevin Bacon number for him is very low, and I must say: he's just not a smart man. He's somewhat of a caricature: very interested in himself, very fond of what he achieved (which is earned, I'd say) and very, very little empathy. The man doesn't get people and subtleties that play outside of his own head, and neither does he get the feeling of the people accusing him of whatnot. That's not to say that he's wrong and they are right (hell what do I know/care, plus don't want to get worked up about it) but it's a perfect example of him just flailing his arms around and thinking that he'll be forgiven because of his legacy. Friends of mine called him 'a somewhat colonial type' as in that he's very much old school in a boomer way. Renaat is in every shape and form the boomer of the dance scene.
  13. https://leonvynehall.bandcamp.com/album/rare-forever First track sounding really dope imo. A bit of a 'timbre switch', but for the better.
  14. Holy shit this track is bonkers hilarious. Ambient comedy? Listen for yourself...
