Flavor of the Week #14

( ;D --> Jape are an Irish electronic–rock band from Dublin. Formed as a side project by Richie Egan whilst part of The Redneck Manifesto, they have released five albums to date; Cosmosphere (2003), The Monkeys in the Zoo Have More Fun Than Me (2004), Ritual (2008), Ocean of Frequency (2011), and This Chemical Sea(2015). Jape's wider discography includes the EP, Jape is Grape (2007), as well as a number of singles, including "Floating" and "Phil Lynott". The band have performed at festivals and events such as Glastonbury, Electric Picnic, Lovebox and Hard Working Class Heroes and provided support for The Flaming Lips at Belsonic in Belfast in August 2008.)
This Chemical Sea

( ;D --> Throughout the 90s Leftfield were untouchable live and on record. Their debut Leftism, remains one of the defining statements of 90s dance music, a gloriously inter-woven bombardment of musical styles and immaculate grooves, nominated for a Mercury prize and later voted in the top ten greatest albums of all time by readers of Q magazine. The 90s were all but over when the second Leftfield album appeared in Autumn 1999. Rhythm And Stealth worked with a darker hue and more pronounced techno influence, guests including Roots Manuva, MC Cheshire Cat and Afrika Bambaataa on first single Afrika Shox, which reached the UK top ten.)
Alternative Light Source
( ;D --> 8th June 2015 sees the long awaited return of one of the most established electronic acts in modern times. Alternative Light Source marks the third album under Leftfield’s belt.)
Universal Everything

Hot Chip
( ;D --> The main duo of British group Hot Chip are Joe Goddard and Alexis Taylor (who go by Ulysses and Sophocles, respectively, in liner notes and elsewhere), write the music and sing the songs. Joe is the master of beats, and Alexis works the keys. They are joined by Owen Clarke on keyboards and guitar, Felix Martin (Mankf) with drums and MPC, and Al "Do It" Doyle on guitar and anything else.)

( ;D --> Drexciya was an electronic music duo from Detroit, Michigan. The late James Stinson was the only officially identified member of Drexciya, but it was considered an open secret that he had a partner, Gerald Donald. The majority of Drexciya's releases were in the style of dance-floor-oriented Electro, punctuated with elements of retro, 1980s Detroit Techno, with occasional excursions into the Ambient and Industrial genres. Tracks are mostly centered around the TR-808 drum machine, with bass, melodies, and synth textures ebbing and flowing in time. Anecdotes suggest that Stinson and Donald recorded tracks while playing the instruments live, making use of analogue equipment and sequencing methods. Drexciya combined a faceless, underground, anti-mainstream media stance with mythological, sci-fi narratives, to help heighten the dramatic effect of their music. In this aspect they were similar to artists within and close to the Detroit collective Underground Resistance.)
Black Sea / Wavejumper (Aqualung Versions) (12inch)
( ;D --> Alternate mixes of two seminal Drexciya tracks. A longer version of Black Sea and a different mix for Wavejumper (without the infamous 'skip'). And to finish it off an Unknown Journey.)

( ;D --> Die Braut born in Santiago de Chile in 2006, composed by Cristian Soto Vanelli (composing and arranging music) and Katia F. (vocals and lyrics), one of the few bands representatives of Chilean electro-industrial genre.)
