New electronic music from Software Recording Co. (GABI / Tairiq & Garfield)
Software Recording Co. is a Mexican Summer imprint that was started by Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never, Games) and Joel Ford (Airbird, Games) to highlight the world of off-kilter electronic music, a space those two are very invested in. Starting with a release from their duo, Ford & Lopatin (previously Games), the label has been a consistent source of a wide variety of outsider, electronic-based music over the last few years. Their latest efforts can be sampled above, featuring the brittle-but-sharp electronic of Tairiq & Garfield and the more dramatic, opera-influenced electro pop of GABI. Both are lush and magnetic, but offer much different perspectives on the genre. Check them out above and if you dig, check out their forthcoming releases and the other gems at the Software Recording Co. website.
