Ok here’s the deal…
Fluid Radio has been streaming now for a year and within that time the playlist has been gradually changing, growing into more experimental sounds. This has brought the station many new listeners which is great, but….yes there is always a but!
I want to make sure that we don’t scare off the listeners who have been with us since day one, and so have been thinking seriously about creating a new stream dedicated to a more experimental sound.

Here’s a list of cool releases doing the rounds on the Fluid playlist at the moment…

One of the things that we love about running Fluid Radio is the amount of highly talented artists we discover along our journey of bringing you fresh cutting edge sounds. One particular talent is an artist who goes by the name of Field Rotation. We recieved a four track demo a while back and haven’t stopped listening to it since. This guy’s music is very special indeed and I have a feeling we will be seeing lots more from him this year. With his track ‘Regenzeit’ submitted to the Fluid Audio 001 project ‘Hope’, ‘Licht und Schatten’ EP signed up for Fluid Audio 002, Field Rotation is definitely an artist to watch out for in 2009!

James Murray is a london-based electroacoustic sound artist, producer and multi-instrumentalist. his productions weave together elements of electronica, downtempo, jazz and dub in emotive explorations of how the organic and electronic interact.
All at once the city and the middle of nowhere, jm’s recursive themes draw hi-tech sound design, live instrumentation and lush pastoralism together in a sonic world where nothing is ever quite as it seems.

IDMf004 – Length and Brecht (Remixed) transcends the definition of remix album by sounding more like a four movement orchestral piece with a recurring theme: the leitmotif of a woman’s voice singing out in a layering of beautiful, ambient tones. Download here

The ten-minute title track gets the album underway, opening tentatively with flickers of noise and digital debris crackling like fireworks in the distance. Soon a flood of symphonic guitar and electronics overwhelms the mix and we’re reintroduced to the signature sound world that’s unique to this man’s music – he’s one of the most imitated electronic artists out there, and yet you can always pick out the real thing from a line-up of clones.
Since being involved with the Exquisite Corpse mix for solipsistic NATION I have come into contact with a very cool music website known as Headphone Commute. The site is full of interesting articles ranging from interviews, new releases, album reviews and label information. Make sure to visit and give yourself an hour or so for a great read…
