IdentifyThisElectronicMusicFilter: Does anybody know the name/artist/album of this minimal electronic track I found in a liveset (big mp3)? Or anything similar?

I've been obsessed with this track (and liveset) for months and I really hope it's not an unreleased track from Move D and Benjamin Brunn because I hope it just points me in the direction of a new artist.

Anyway, if you don't know, but do know something you think I would like if I liked this track, that would be great too.

Fabric 12, mixed by Amalgamation of Soundz might be up your alley. I picked this up after listening to it on the ipod of a guy I met while travelling. He told me the rest of the Fabric stuff was similar, but I haven't given it a go yet.

Looking forward to finding out more about the track you posted. If there's anything I should check out, do let me know. (mefi mail if need be)

Best answer: This track sounds like it should be from the "thinner netlabel" catalogue. I've been trying all the bands on the label that sound similar, but I can't come up with a match. Nulleins is very very close in sound though, and if you like that track, I'm sure you'll like the band - give the album Seven Spaces a spin. I've mentioned some of these bands before on MeFi, but I'd like to recommend Marko F├╝rstenberg (Classics album), Lomov (Mounting Stags album), and Ben Businovski (Simulacraic Wonderland album). Hope that helps, or at least gets you on the path to mew music.

If you found it in a liveset by Move D and Benjamin Brunn, then it is a track by Move D and Benjamin Brunn. Because it is a live set not a DJ set.

This is strongly reminiscent of Sasu Ripatti's stuff, who records under various pseudonyms such as Vladislav Delay, Luomo, and Uusitalo (none of which I noticed on your last.fm artist list). Check out Vocalcity (recorded as Luomo; this is pretty much a classic) and Tulenkantaja (recorded as Uusitalo).

Response by poster: You're probably right dydecker. It's just pretty different from the stuff they release on albums, so I was assuming they were covering/sampling something.
