PB Recommends #45: Finn, Giant Swan And More

Point Blank Recommends is your handy digest of our essential new music recommendations, whether it’s box-fresh material or tracks that may have slipped under the radar. If you’re seeking fresh inspiration from unusual places, PBR#45 has got you covered. As always, this one covers a broad spectrum of music, so open your mind, your ears and a fresh tab on your browser and get refreshing those listening habits with our handy Soundcloud playlist.

As the nights begin to close in, leaves fade to brown and inevitably cover the ground in a wet, brown mulch, its tempting to let your musical tastes fixate on darker hues. Saying that, sometimes you just need to surround yourself in sonic sunshine and drag your mind back to the summer. For the 45th edition of PB Reccommends, we’ve got both tendancies covered. Releases from Jasss, Sun Yufka and Giant Swan (on the outstanding Timedance imprint) pander to the darkness, while Nilüfer Yanya, Miles From Kinshasa and Finn exist on the sunny side (the latter has the office divided but we’ll let you make up your own mind).

For more music including the recent live set and masterclass we were blessed with from Octave One, head to the Point Blank Music YouTube channel, where you can also check out what’s going down on our label. As always we hope this inspires you to want to make your own music. If that’s the case why not take a look at our Online BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree. Or if playlisting is your thing, why not have a look at our Radio Courses? As it happens we’re currently offering £1000 off our Radio Broadcasting Diploma until 31st October!

Hello, 2017. A New Year provides new opportunities (and hopefully less loss to the music industry). 2016 was a compelling year for electronic music and club culture. We saw London’s legendary Fabric nightclub closing, only to reopen after overwhelming backlash and support from the electronic community and the focus being shifted from Western European club staples to a fast rising, up and coming Eastern European rave scene. We’ve lost some of music’s finest pioneers and seem some amazing new artists break through, so with January speeding past its time to take stock and push forwards into the New Year with positivity, and a whole batch of new music! Whether you’re still recovering from NYE (come on now) or are back into the swing of things we’ve got you covered with a new playlist, featuring cuts old and new from the likes of The Black Madonna, Romare and Fold, not to mention new releases from Lobster Theremin, The Trilogy Tapes, Phonica Records and more.

November 2016. What a month. As the dust settles on a world that feels a little different to a month ago, and near unrecognisable to a year ago, we return once again to music. Whether you seek a balm for the soul or want to find solace on the dancefloor, hunger for fresh inspiration or crave unusual music for unusual times, we’ve got your covered with PBR#35. From M.A.N.D.Y’s brooding basement melancholy, to the disorientating sonic assault of Stockholm’s Peder Mannerfelt via the cosmic R’n’B redemption of DAWN on Local Action, we can’t think of a better way to wrap up this month. And if you were in any doubt, we included Mickey Pearce’s ‘Top 5 Goat Memes’. Now go and dance away 2016 – we’re nearly there.

Point Blank Recommends #34

Point Blank Recommends is your handy digest of our essential new music recommendations, whether it’s box-fresh material or tracks that may have slipped under the radar. If you’re seeking fresh inspiration from unusual places, PBR#34 has got you covered. As always, this one covers a broad spectrum of electronic music perfect, so open your mind, your ears and a fresh tab on your browser of choice and get refreshing those listening habits with our handy Soundcloud playlist.

Taking the temperature of where music’s at in October 2016, the playlist kicks off with fresh material from PC Music who continue to shore up their transition from art school provocateurs to pop legitimacy. For those preferring a deeper tip, the new Anthony Naples EP on Trilogy Tapes is slow release house music for the wee hours, while New York’s The Nativist resurfaces the vital and raw sensibilities of jungle on ‘Various Options’. Elsewhere, the young producer Bludwork proves why he’s one to keep an eye on with his low-key and strangely affecting ‘Witness’ on 100% Silk. And that’s before we get to the new deliveries from Apron Records, PAN, SunkLo and more. We defy you not to be inspired.
