The Warm Glow of the Computer Screen

Over the last few years a number of artists seem to be bringing some real humanity back into electronic music. The Germans, of course, are involved and lots of quality things are coming out of Cologne in particular these days. Schneider TM's (he's from Berlin actually) 2002 release Zoomer is a fine example of glitchy beats married to a lush pop sensibility. Really sexy vocoder too.

Schneider TM - Reality Check

Pulse Programming is based out of Chicago and like Schneider TM, they started out vocal-less and more ambient and have moved to a more pop-based sound. They too enjoy the vocoder.

Pulse Programming - Blooms Eventually

Detroit micro-house producer Matthew Dear is one of the big players at Ghostly International. This track is more of a traditional dance-floor cut, but is garnished with Dear's breathy vocals and some strong melodies.

    Pulse Programming I had not heard of, and I quite enjoyed. Many thanks to you for bestowing upon us this music. Although it lacks a certain Egyptianness.
