DJ Frane - Journey to the Planet of the Birds [2008]


Hey y'all, it's been a while.
Working hard as fuck on this thesis. Almost done. Phew.

Anyways, dantelope's most recent post inspired me to get this classic up here.
DJ Frane's a mysterious stoned (mysteriously stoned?) figure who makes some of the best beats this side of DJ Shadow. Rich with detail and sample heavy, this album has a narrative arc to it that'll keep it spinning on your record player (figurtively, since you we don't have mediafire links for 3D printer designs of vinyl--can someone do that, please?) until the end.

If you love this (and I imagine y'all'll love this), check out his other two albums, which are each at least as good.

And then, keep your collective fingers crossed for a fourth.
[not my link, holla back if there's problems]

Also, someone wanna point me towards some choice writing music? I've been on a minimal-tech/90s drum 'n' bass/50s exotica lounge kick lately (not all at once, unfortunitely), and need something new. Lay your opinionated wisdom on me, dear listeners.

  4. Steve Reich (Drumming, Music for 18 Musicians), Balanescu Quartet's album "Possessed". Minimalist string music with a good amount of drive always does the trick.

    Farben's album Textstar is really good, but try to find the album Starbox which compiles his EPs from that era. it's real groovy "microhouse", and i can honestly say probably the best in that genre, being so focused in that soundworld.

  7. quiroga? kava kon? oleg kostrow?

  8. steve reich's good for writing. snd (and/or mark fell). blir.

  9. First of all, thank you Zarko. That's some incredible stuff. Much appreciated.

    For writing music, what about some lowercase stuffs?

    Depending on how you write best. Some might find it a little too distracting. Others not distracting enough..
