Deja Vu
Nothing's New
Yes It's True What They Say
I Love You

 Press Text:
Glass Candy's sinister homage to the John Carpenter classic. A Candy coated gift for all the Ghouls & Goblins in Candyland. Trick Or Treat? Disorienting walls of synthesizers grasping for their last breath accompanied by Rossini's most disturbing work to date. Unforgiving arpeggios slash at us like tiny knives in the darkest night, while Ida channels messages from a ouija board...
"It's Halloween For The Last Time"

M.E.D. - Blaxican (Video)

Madlib's production on this track revives the backpacker in me, and M.E.D. is definitely holding it down with his conscious lyrics.
This is fire!

M.E.D.'s album, Classic is already avalibla on the stones throw web shop.

save your food from the refrigerator

I don't usually talk about design and design related projects but this is really special. Jihyun Ryou's project focuses on alternative food preservation techniques using ancient/traditional knowledge and adapting it to todays needs.  She states that people don't observe food anymore nowadays, that in a sense they don't know the food they have in their fridges anymore. (see an exerpt from her theory below)
 I totally agree and I can so imagine this in my kitchen.

"Through the research into the current situation of food preservation, I’ve learned that we hand over the responsibility of taking care of food to the technology, the refrigerator. We don’t observe the food any more and we don’t understand how to treat it.

Therefore my design looks at re-introducing and re-evaluating traditional oral knowledge of food, which is closer to nature. Furthermore, it aims to bring back the connection between different levels of living beings, we as human beings and food ingredients as other living beings.

Through the objects of everyday life, design can introduce traditional oral knowledge into people’s lives through their experience of using it. Objects make invisible knowledge evident."

Taken from jihyun ryou's website ( 2009, shaping traditional oral knowledge-save food from the fridge)

Spare the Cradle - Beat your mother while she's young

Tiago Miranda never ceases to amaze me. He's all over the place with so many varied projects. It's just unbelievable (Gala Drop, Sangue de Christo, Sea Power and Change, to name a few).
This new (digital) release is a compilation of edits made between 2003 & 2005. It's disco, cosmic, kraut, psyched out all at the same time. Blame yourself if you don't have this in your hard drive!

CCC - Acid Snow EP

CCC - Acid Snow EP

A1. Acid Snow (featuring Shay La Rey)
A2. Acid Snow (Night Plane Remix)
B1. Vibrations
B2. SIVA (featuring Athena)

Hot news from the CCC camp with the release of Acid Snow, a 4 track EP. It's CCC's first official release, since str8ght 2 Ur heart was a bootleg.

Acid snow is, as the title might suggest, an acid house track, but one with a cool twist in the last part, which for me makes it more interesting than most of the acid house revival tracks being released lately. Just listen to it and you'll understand.
Vocal duties are handled by Shay La Rey. I don't know much about her, but i've been told she's a 50 something Brooklyn glam grandma and house enthousiast. (She sounds great)

The other standout track on the EP is SIVA (feat. Athena). This is the track i'd spin during a dj set. This one's is more laidback and hypnotic and has a nice psychedelic feel.

Acid Snow is out now on 12". Support Vinyl and buy it!
