Philjo’s Artist of the Month for January 2017 - Orka Veer
Philjo’s Artist of the Month for October 2016
Wolf Asylum is an IDM producer from Australia who has a large catalogue of work available online. I have been following him for some time now and what strikes me is how quickly his sound has evolved and improved. Something I recommend to audiences is that when they find an artist that they like, delve through the back catalogue to see how their sound has developed over time. It always tells you a story and puts you more in touch with the artist in terms of where they have come from and where they are now.
One of Wolf Asylum’s noteworthy albums is the recent LP which is thought provokingly titled “The More We Could Do Without” and contains a rich mix of break and glitch beats, with well placed squelchy acid sounds, magnificent sinewave melodies and ethereal vocals.
You can also listen to Wolf Asylum on Soundcloud:
This album is now available on Bandcamp!

Shout out to Emma Catnip who runs the IDM facebook group for drawing my attention to this artist and his track, “27” which is going to be coming out soon on his new album. I am giving Ned Rush this spot because of what he has achieved in his sound, a nuanced nod towards well known IDM artists whilst keeping a firm hold of that coveted streak known as originality. A really fresh break, with evolving sound design to keep you hooked all the way through. Excellent granular sound with sweet wavesynth manipulation. It's quite impressive when you learn that Ned Rush has adhered to concepts that some would find very limiting, such as using one drum break to create every sound you hear, and using no effects units. The video is interesting too and fits rhythmically very well.
Ned Rush is about to release his new album entitled "Unsubscribe", which going by his preview tracks is worth following to it's aimed release of the 16th September 2016. You can join the release event here.

Nobuo Uematsu’s masterful composing for the Final Fantasy video game series has captured the admiration of so many people, including me.
I continue to work on remakes of his music as it is so inspiring and I enjoy applying my sound design and production to his score.
