VOTE: What are your favourite EP / LP releases in 2018?
This year we had the chance to hear amazing vibes, delivered by both well-known artists and record labels on one side, as well as emerging talents and freshly established imprints on the other. We danced on these groovy rhythms at parties and festivals and created beautiful memories with a colourful sonic background.
12” or digital, catalogued or unknown, some releases really stand out, as they provide intriguing arrangements and new possibilities for the way house or techno music is produced nowadays. While some melodic compositions tend to stick in your head and play repeatedly for a while, others are just mysterious enough to keep you focused exclusively on the pumping patterns. The local scene pushed what we all call the “Rominimal movement” to even further boundaries, reaching more and more people and drawing new influences at the same time. Some new ways of presenting this type of music emerged and will develop for sure, smoothly blending experimental and cross-genre elements to the specific core sound. The international scene opened more doors for our culture to enter and showcase its potential. This created opportunities, which of course were taken by daring artists who are now ready to present their works to the world. Equally, renowned labels, producers and DJs (through their mixes), maintained a balance, while the South American, Russian and Asian movements are on the rise. Here at feeder.ro, we explore this vast dimension of sound with great care, and we engage in actively and steadily promoting the contemporary vibrations through our online platforms, one of which being soundcloud.
