Invisible Agent: For What Its Worth

Discovered an amazing website recently called Invisible Agent, visiting it felt like walking into HMV and five finger discounting a stack of music you've been itching to test for months. It was all there, like a crash course in the Dublin electronica scene of the past while and all for free. Coming into work with a come down is never tasty, but theres always hope in a world that may as well fall apart when you randomly click on a track and it happens to be one that was jammed sonically into your skull by speaker stacks you were dancing beside the night before. Music can so easily be lost to you, especially in something like the dance scene where a DJ almost in a sense prides themselves on a ruthless underground nerdiness that means fuckers like me are left at a loss when it comes to identifying what exactly it is that's making me go nod my head back and forth like the Duracell bunny on a mission to headbut a fox to death. Anyway worth checking out on the site are Chrymea, floaty in a Boards of Canada mixed with a cheery Sunday afternoon bubble bath, complements contemplation but with enough of a beat behind it too pull you along and ensure you never fall asleep.

He has one track that rips off a guitar line in big beat manner and pulls it back and forth, before exploding it with beats and bass. Put this one on at a house party not so long ago, resulted in a corner of a bored sitting room going berserk and several of the more out of it types complementing the leap from RnB to something more bouncy with the 'no stick this on arguments. If you're looking for something to prompt serious bouts of stomping around the place, with ever bouncier steps then check out Sondamentalist. A number of his tracks are addictive, a number are pedantic and a few are a wee bit dodge, but of those that are worth it they drive you along like some mechanical conveyor belt dosed with speed, great pulsing electro and then some techno aggro for the gurning. Amongst others on the site are Corrugated Tunnel, Inner Frequency, Ikea Boy and a lot of names you see knocking around Dublin flyers, and all for free. Do not forget to check out the bloke from ADF MCing for some Bassbin DJ. Not to be lost out on in the madness of the Invisible Agent led prompt to music accumulation, respect has to go to a Radioactive Man fabric mix, reminds me of all the best of that techno that used to slip into the Irish Top Thirty a number of years ago. Also Miss Kitten deserves a mention as does Soulseek, what a wonderful little thing.
