Elissa Batti (Violet Fall) [Best 5 Music of 2014]

BEST 5 Music of 2014


Recondite – Caldera

Recondite is a Berlin based artist. He released Caldera for Hotflush Recordings. His music can be defined as ambient, deep house and techno/acid techno. He is mostly using analog sound and field recording as a source for his music. I love his dark and hypnotic atmospheres and the quality of the sound. I can just close my eyes and fly with it.


Douglas Dare – Swim

Douglas Dare is a british artist. Maybe because it is winter in Europe, my selection is going towards some dark, intimate, bittersweet tunes. I love this song, it can be nice even if played with a piano and a voice, but the electronics are adding an extra touch to it.


Roisin Murphy – Mi senti

Maybe you know Roisin Murphy as the singer of Moloko. This year she released an album of covers of old famous Italian songs from artists such as Mina, Patty Bravo and Lucio Battisti. Maybe influenced by her husband, an Italian music producer…For sure this choice has been influenced by my italian roots. I can listen to this album and get the teletransport bringing me to the summer of the 80s, sitting on the back of my parent’s car listening to a tape cassette or the radio. “Pensiero Stupendo” is my favourite song of the album.

Modeselektor presents - Modeselektion VOL 03

Modeselektor presents – Modeselektion VOL 03

I just love Modeselektor, within the electronic scene I like their not serious attitude and their acid beats, with a little bit of hip hop contamination and a lot of Berlin sounds. This is a compilation containing a selection of tunes they liked and they remixed. I especially really love the remix they did for “Burn in Flamez- Time hurtz”.

EmptySet - Recur

EmptySet – Recur

I admit, it is a difficult album for me, really dark atmosphere and industrial sounds. It wouldn’t be in my playlist if not for the sounds they are able to craft. They are just amazing. I find something really new in their work, things that are inspiring me. Use of beats and noise, again repetitive sounds, totally winter mood. I would compare this album to some of the Autechre releases.
