Diverse Vibes :: Kinder Drops Mega-Mix With ‘Kinder Medleys Vol. 1’

Screenshot_4

One listen to the original production of Exploded Drawing standout kinder lets you know that his musical palette is diverse and expansive.  His compositions easily touch the bases of electronic, hip-hop, folk and rock sensibilities without over-indulging in any specific genre for too long.  With the recent rainy spell that San Marcos has weathered (no pun intended), kinder took it as an opportunity to dig through his vinyl collection and put together a feature-length mix in the form of kinder medleys vol. 1.  Take a peek at the track listing, or just throw on some headphones and dive in… and be sure to share this one around, give it a like, and leave a comment on your favorite song!

Surreal Soundscapes :: Kinder Laces Soundcloud With ‘Sutures Pt. 2’

Knowing so many producers with so many ranges of styles and approaches is equal parts inspiring and humbling.  I often know that, despite my best efforts, I will always be a level or two behind quite a few names, especially members of the Exploded Drawing camp.  One of the names that comes to mind is kinder, and it’s reinforced each time he drops something new.  Sutures Pt. 2 finds kinder making music that reminds me of the old adage about cinema being ‘the wind in the trees’… something perceptible, but only because of the stimulus it causes, and not because of its own tangible qualities.  As abstract as that sounds, there’s nothing abstract about the way kinder‘s music hits you where it tends to matter most… with the variety of the last few tracks he’s dropped, I’m dying to hear another full length project.

Dirty Work :: Kinder Hits The Internet With A New Tape Mix

When it comes to production and electronic music in the central Texas realm, not many are doing it to the skill level of Exploded Drawing OG member Kinder.  Even his demos are an event, as the recent Soundcloud upload of 2.24 (tapemix) demonstrated.  6 minutes of Kinder exploring the ideas and pathways of a new song is more entertaining than some so-called producer’s finished products.  For a genre of music that can be formulaic and pattern based, Kinder manages to capture an incredibly hands on feel.  As always, be on the lookout for releases from Kinder, because the man is always working on something dope.

Textured Soundscapes :: ‘Miluseon’ by Miyavé Is A Sonic Journey

a3868427020_10

Miyavé of LardeoTexas (and Feedback Alliance member) clocked in right at the end of 2017 with a truly amazing miniblast.  Miluseon is one of the more textured and expressive electronic releases I’ve heard of late, comparable to the likes of Kinder or Yppah.  There are many other releases on his Bandcamp page (which I plan on looking into shortly), but this gem was too good to not share in regards to an already memorable year, now set aside for the hopes and possibilities of 2018.  I’m sure we’ll hear more from Miyavé, his peers, and scores of other creatives, and I am excited to see and hear what lies in wait.

Joyful Noise :: Kinder’s Latest ‘SP202 Mix’

There are not many producers out there who can do so much with so little in comparison to Kinder.  This dude can take an antiquated (though still beautiful) piece of equipment like an SP202 and create pure magic with it.  I imagine that this SP202 Mix, and previous iterations of this style of mix, serve as the warm-ups to the mind-blowing album-length creations that Kinder periodically serves up.  Like it, share it, and follow for more dopeness.

Mood Music :: Kinder Releases ‘Tourney’

(iN)Sect Records alumni Kinder has recently dropped a new album… Tourney picks up where the self-titled debut left off, and improves on the already dense textures Kinder is known for weaving.  This one covers a deep spectrum of sound, and will more than likely raise Kinder‘s profile to a place it deserves to be in terms of today’s electronic architects.  Dig it, buy it, and spread the word.
