Nils Frahm – Live at Incubate Festival
The unstoppable talent of Nils Frahm captured over a 23 minute live set, from September last year. Ever single minute is as beautiful as you would expect and features some slightly different live approaches to some his well-known tracks and is a joyful reminder of my experience watching him live late last year on the Erased Tapes 5th Anniversary Tour.
The Black Dog – Witches Ov (Beatless)
And lastly, a cheeky little download released by the Black Dog – an ambient version of the popular techno/electronica track Witches Ov, stripping out the breaks and leaving the emotional synth to take center stage.
