A while ago I was raving about some Dark Vektor tracks that I only had preview ~2 min clips of. Here it is, full lentgth.
Dark vektor - Touch tomorrow [Dona-li, 2006] (buy)
Catchy, robot pounding, clean and well executed classic electro. The Spinks remix of this track is awesome as well, so pick up a copy of this asap!

Zero 7 - Futures [2006, Atlantic]
Opener track from their new album, The Garden. José Gonzalez is singing. The usual zero 7 sound besides that.
Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto - Aurora [2005, Raster-Noton]
Uusitalo - Tulenkantaja [2006, Huume] (buy)
Perhaps better known as Vladislav delay and Luomo. This is dubby techno. Title track of his new album.

While browsing around (Youtube especially) for some nice videos, I came across many that I love. Sometimes it's just the video I fall for, sometimes the track is the strongest part, but most of the time it's the interaction between both audio and visuals that hooks me. Check 'em out.
Grandmaster Flash & the furious five - The Message
Underworld - Born Slippy
Future Sound of London - We have explosive
A-ha - Take on me
Aphex Twin - Aparatus
Boards of canada - Dayvan cowboy
Laurent Garnier - Flashback
Les rhythms digitale - Hey you what's that sound?

Laurent Garnier - Greed (part 1+2) Electro laurent style.
Styro 2000 - Saghcal [2006, Bruchstuecke] (buy)
Swiss producer. Cool vocal samples (police radio?) and tricky techno. Some are saying it sounds a bit like hip hop - I don't get that at all.
Ryuichi Sakamoto - Anger (Rare Force 2 Meg Mix) [1998, Ninja tune]
Old! But sounds nice. Ryuichi and Alva Noto are performing at Sonar '06, but that stuff doesn't sound much like this hehe. Will be cool.
Trying some new upload places again. Holler if they suck big time.

Oliver Hacke - Millepieds (Anders Ilar Remix) [2006, Level] (buy)
Here it is, B2. And it's the best of the mixes featured on the release I think.
3 Channels - Lady Salata [2006, Trapez] (buy)
Tribal! Very good work on the drums. From the 'Bar 135' release. Enjoy it on repeat :)
Even better from Bar 135:
3 Channels - Amnesia [2006, Trapez] (now really buy this)

More of the Serge and more of electronic goodness. What an unbeatable combination.
Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg - 69 Année Érotique
Godlike bassline. And those strings...
Oliver Hacke - Millepieds (Slg remix) [2006, Level] (buy)
Minimal, jacking and jerky techno, with a touch of 'emo' (tee hee). Anyone heard the Ilar remix of this track btw? I'm dying to hear it. Uploaded this (sloowly) to sendspace, how is that working out for ya'll?
--> NEWSFLASH <--
Flight to Barcelona and a hotel has now been booked! Sonar, here we come! Only the tickets left, but we'll take care of that in a few days, np. See you there.

Alex Bartsch - Thunk [2006, Sportsclub] (buy)
From the split 12" 'Nakombi' also featuring Franco Zeiger. Pretty heavy!
Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg - Je T'aime Moi Non Plus
And now, a classic in every sense of the word. Serge the man, the myth, the legend.

Ait, time for some psy-electro. No, it has nothing to do with psy-trance (what is that anyway?). This is psycho electro, god damnit!! (yes, I just made that genre name up).
Marco Bernardi - Welcome To My World (Feat. Rei Loci)
[2006, Frustrated funk] (buy)
Title track. Not very fitting of the season I think, but it's nice shit. Come to think of it electro is very winter/autumn flavored music to me. Ah well, who cares. Frustrated funk in full effect!
I have had zero time to browse other people's blogs for almost a month now. That sucks, but can't do much about it. I will have to try harder, simply. Peace to the bloggers keeping it up (you know who you are).

More sun, less time in front of the computer - yay! Anyway, depending on a few independent factors you may or you may not see me at this year's Sonar music festival in Barcelona. I really hope I can make it there.
Kool keith - Make up your mind
Great track from the classic album 'Sex style' (1997) by everyone's favorite whacko rapper mr Kool keith aka dr octagon aka dr dooom aka black elvis etc etc... this delivers!
The black dog - Ripheadv2 [2006, Soma] (buy)
New EP release from the noir hound that goes by the name 'Riphead' and is on the label Soma. This is A1 and it is solid, fine electronic music not differing too much from their previous work. Swell.

Finally a bit of love from the weather gods. To celebrate that fact, here's some imbalanced minimal techno tracks, both from the release "Friends are silence" on My best friend - buy this release.
Jorge Gebauhr & Riley Reinhold - Six Sick Torros [2006, My best friend]
Remute & Riley Reinhold - Polyester [2006, My best friend]
Still a bit dodgy on the free time front, sorry. Will try to do better! (and excuse me if these are posted all over, haven't even been able to read any blogs)

Tim Koch - Blue and Grey [Merck, 2006]
From his new album Faena on merck. Classic IDM, not very fresh or exciting perhaps, but very well made. I dig.
Tim Koch - X to M [Merck, 2006]
Another one from the same album, my favorite. Haters who yell 'cheesy' at this - GTFO! :-)
Buy this release.
