Enig’matik Records – Evolving Freedom compilation

Some dope pre-NYE music for you!  One of our new favorite netlabels is Enig’matik Records, who releases a lot of free downloads in addition to their main catalogue. This is a label that moves in a lot of different directions with their sound. The main undercurrent is experimental bass music, with enthusiastic contributors from all over the world. Last month, they released this free download compilation which you should certainly grab.

The comp includes an entry from our newest artist-crush, Auma. Other songs of note is a deep psychedelic dub from Quanta, a funk Walkabout retouched by Kalya Scintilla. This comp contains crazy bass, frenetic rhythm freakouts, touching melodies, and other oddities you wouldn’t imagine could/should be stitched together. Check it out in the player below, then go download it!

OEM Radio v3.0!!

We are very happy to announce that OEM Radio has moved to (yet another) new server which now allows us to program rotations.

Up until now, tracks just streamed randomly from the OEM library (which thousands of tracks, 200+ hours of music). Now we can give a little weight to newer music.

When you listen to OEM Radio now, you should notice the music we’ve added more recently will stream more often. We’re constantly working on the balance so that it’s not all out of whack. But if you look through the blog posts here over the last year, you should hear that music with a little more frequency.

So for instance, you should hear the new stuff from ReconditeKILN, Random Rab, and ambinate more than once a week.

We wish you a happy New Year. Please stay safe, and tune into OEM Radio before, during, and after your NYE celebrations!

We’ll have some wonderful new music to add to the library in the new year and will let you know about it here on the blog.


Kiln – meadow:watt

Ghostly’s knocked it out of the park again with this little jammy. Call it mellow robot dream-funk. Kiln is a trio from our shared homeland of Michigan that assembles sublime songs with an array of clicks, whirrs, guitar, keys, and a few bleeps for good measure. There’s a certain pulsing lo-fi fuzziness to the music here that’s quite endearing. We can’t say enough about this album, so just listen to it… Our favorite songs are Willbowbrux and Acre, but really the whole album is a gem. Ghostly’s been good enough to let you listen to the entire record on Soundcloud…It will not disappoint.

Recondite – Hinterland

We’re very happy to put this amazing new album into the OEM Radio rotation library. Ghostly International is a well known purveyor for all kinds of cutting edge and experimental music. Recondite’s first full length is a mellow, melodic, and at times downtempo, techno affair. We love this sort of minimal techno that has breathing room for melody and storytelling as well as movement.

You can stream the entire album on the player below; highly recommended. We were recently put on the Ghostly promo list, so expect some more fantastic music from them to enter our rotation library soon. As always, tune in to OEM Radio!
