Perky threesome from Tanzkultur, D10DE and Acidic Base #house #chill #idm #electronic #newmusic

Three perky tracks from Tanzkultur, D!)DE and Acidic Base.

Tanzkultur is, unsurprisingly, from Germany and offers Hängepartie (tr. hanging). This is a mildly experimental track blending some perky house with some 80s indie synth work. There’s even a bit of almost sax in here. The effect is like there’s a whole party going on at once. Streamers, party poppers and a bucket of prosecco. This has it all. Who knew hanging could be such fun?

D10DE is from Canada and takes us on a more IDM journey via Je Serai Silence. This has a lonesome piano offset by a perfectly done clatter and glitch of beats and tins. Of the track D10DE says “«Je serai silence» is French for «I’ll be silence». It’s an exploration of the tension felt before leaving, literally or figuratively. The void we feel and/or what is left behind when we are gone. Was is an escape, or just a line drawn in the sand? Am I still here?” The track is sad from the piano but refuses to be put down in the tumble of beats. Cleverly done.

Finally, Acidic Base from the USA and Purple Skies. This is a lovely synth-based track that rolls and ripples around. Offers a lovely warming feeling. The track is taken from an album of the same name. There’s a lovely calm maturity going on here. Which is a bit bewildering since the accompanying blurb says “Chicago’s Acidic Base is the brainchild of a 12 year-old musician (currently in the 8th grade) Siddharth Goswami.” I rather think he should go outside and play football (soccer) in the park but only after another album, please.
