WATMM Album of the Year 2017 Nominations

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I'd be into that!

 

By the way, I wasnt trying to guilt folks. I totally relate to the dozens or more of unlistened albums, and I have the priviledge of listening to music at work...

I bumped its own thread the other day but "OL - Height Difference" (aka Oлег Буянов ‎– «Перепад высот») deserves a mention. Magical house album.

forgot Johnny Jewel - Windswept. that's a very excellent album that I've listened to a lot and still do.

 

it was also useful in remembering all the nice and cool moments throughout twin peaks season 3, which would otherwise have been soured by its atrocious ending. too bad not more stuff from the album showed up in it.

I enjoyed the discussion about watmm artists and the lack of their mention of these lists. I do feel as though there is amazing talent here and I'd love it to be made more obvious when people put out major releases. Like it should be a separate landing page entirely before you get onto the forums or something with links. Celebrate the art!

I just would like to see more discussion and appreciation of things people here put out. The Artwork thread and the Latest Creations forum are genuinely positive and constructive, but the EKT album forum can be so dead, and that is the culmination of so much of what many of us do, right? if you've been skimming the Boomkat and Bleep lists, and you havent listened to trent hawkins, Auditor, ladalaika, owen gilbride, BCM, IMPAKT, ANTAPE, ATRIUM, MOPFUNK, Phyla Zen, Gareth Clarke, DAVID PECK, Jonas The Plugexpert, beathaven, Blaž, thidiot, sepha or whoever else published and posted in EKT this year, why not?

Zwischenwelt

Hidden Hawaii

In comparing Zwischenwelt to a "mysterious obelisk," Mark Smith aptly summarised the album's enigmatic sound. It draws equally from dub techno and drum & bass, but resembles neither style. That's partly down to its use of Euclidean rhythms, each one taking turns to draw the ear. Not that much of this would cross your mind on a dance floor—you'd probably just ask, awestruck, "What the hell is this?"

 

Listen: Apple Music / SoundCloud / Spotify

 

How could I forget this one?? Way too much great stuff put out this year.

Thought I would skim through this thread to check out some good shit I may have missed... and pleased I did cause this is just what I needed! Thanks for the recommendation!
