Candy For The Eyes & Ears 15! Remed, Kiasmos & Grimes!!

So here's some things which have made made my eyes & ears feel nice.

I search for some old style illustrations and life theories led to a search for Cosmogony which resulted in finding the works of Remed! Bright colours, good shapes, pattern making and cool characters all come together in such a bright and playful mess that's impossible not to like. You can find more of his work via his website and there's a nice interview in the current issue of Juztapoz magazine!



On a musical front I recently discovered a belter of a tune by Kiasmos, one part Olafur Arnalds one part Bloodgroup mastermind Janus Rasmussen. Together the pair bring out the best elements of minimal techno and create something warm and alive. You can hear the title track Thrown along with snippets of all the remixes here, I'd also highly recommend sighing up to the Erased Tapes site and downloading the free sampler


Grimes aka Claire Boucher is pretty hot right now!I picked up her album on vinyl from One Up and its been on heavy rotation ever since. Mixing sweet vocals with glitchy ambient beats and lots of synth makes for a pretty good mix. Check out her new video for Genesis, probably my favourite track off the album!
