Sharing some music.

Forss

SoulhackForss (a.k.a. Eric Wahlforss of Sweden) is one of the coolest electronic musicians I’ve heard in a while. I don’t even know exactly where to categorize him. The songs on his album, Soulhack, range from slow, groovy acid jazz to crashing big beats, with bits that approach drum and bass. Each song is lavishly layered with complex little tweaks and twitches and samples and fills, most strikingly in “Flickermood,” which is basically just one bar of funky beat being deliciously stretched out, abused and twisted in every which way for three minutes. He also expertly conjures up atmosphere, running the gamut from sinister to playful to other-worldly. Not only is the production rewardingly complex and interesting, but the songs themselves are just extremely catchy. He hosts the entire album and a number of remixes for listening and download on his site — although it looks like the ‘download’ link gets you an uncompressed .aiff file, so maybe you have to ‘buy’ to get an MP3, if large files bother you. Regardless, give him a listen.
