Expanding on the subject, I bring you some seasonal music.


Yagya – Rigning Tvo

A very beautiful and atmospheric dub-techno track coming from the ice-cold plains of Iceland. You can almost hear the springwater running from the melting ice.

Boo Williams – Summer Love

I’m really starting to get into this more traditional, straight (er, I mean gay) house music.

Anders Ilar – September Nights

A strong expressive quality is rare in electronic music. In a field full of scientists it’s difficult to come across a true poet, someone who really paints landscapes with effects and distorted percussion. September Nights by Sweden’s own Anders Ilar is an accurate portrait of the torn industrial beauty of the Swedish suburb Hisingen Island an autumn night (and Illusions of a Summer Breeze by the same artist qualifies as strongly expressive winter music).

DeepChord Presents Echospace – Winter In Siney

The Coldest Season (fitting name for an album of winter music) is brilliant and magnificent. Starting from the pioneering work of Basic Channel, we move towards colder territories.


Biz Markie – Spring Again

Great video by a great live performer. We need more artists like this, in these coldly segregated days of rap music. It’s difficult to believe he was in the same crew as Kool G Rap and Tragedy.

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince – Summertime

The anthem for the summer.

Trife Diesel – Stronger Man

Better Late Than Never was one of the stronger releases of 2009. In this beautifully produced track we find our protagonist when summer is over; it’s back to working and studying, trying to better our situation, to become a Stronger Man. It’s time to grow up.

A Tribe Called Quest – We Got The Jazz

My favorite ATCQ track, and one of the best videos ever. N.Y. winter has never looked as cool.
