Caleb McPherson's project Kessenchu is rather more aggressive and unlike really anything I've posted thus far. Overall, he creates a chaotic blend of digital hardcore, breakcore, gabber, and plenty of other things not necessarily within the mainstream. His recent "Music to Fap To" is an attempt at what is called 'lolicore', and although I've enjoyed what I've heard of the genre, I've never exactly understood what defines it. As last.fm states, "Lolicore is characterized by heavily distorted, high-pitched loli vocals, 8-bit extreme tempos, frequently accompanied by techno beats". In other words, this is some good obnoxious fun.

One of the seemingly lesser know originators of techno, Eddie 'Flashin' Fowlkes, is the self-proclaimed godfather of 'techno soul'. Growing up on a healthy diet of Motown and soul and receiving his first mixer in 1977, Eddie will go onto recording his first single "Goodbye Kiss" on Metroplex in 1986. This album, and along with many of his others, were released on the ever-so-famous Tresor out of Berlin, this being the third. Black Technosoul was such a pleasant surprise the first time I listened to it with its high energy, helping the explain his nickname 'Flashin'.

Those people who view this blog and myself seem to agree that Kyle Hall's fantastic, so here's another release. It's a bit more recent than the Worx of Art EP 1 I posted earlier but still off of his Wild Oats label. Again, this album can be bought through his myspace.
