Are you in the kraken?

I'll start this post with some love for another blog, a blog where the posts are always well documented, where the songs are always a surprise, the writing done so sparkling and well formulated (but they are native English speakers, and we aren't),... To become as good as them is sort of a milestone we have to achieve. I am talking about Electrotoronto, a Canadian blog from, you've guessed it: Toronto.
I don't like all the songs they post, but sometimes they really show a blindspot in my collection. The last beauty I got from their site, is a song from Simian Mobile Disco "Are you in the picture?". Normally I don't download stuff from them, but now I did. And this might not be typical ratrabbits stuff, but somewhere deep within... We should all love this track. Be warned, it's minimal-tech music, but not as we know it. Love! Let me know what you think of it, I'm kinda curious if a lot of people like it.

The second part of my post will be a little more '"ratrabbit"-like. I recently discovered Kraken Heart, a french fidget producer. His tracks sound like someone put a fidget track in the sea, and then he recorded it under water. Maybe we should invent a new genre for this guy? Water-fidget? Check his myspace for his tracks, I was amazed.
So anyway, he has a mixtape series, the Kraken tapes. The third installment of that project dropped in our inbox this night, exactly 40 minutes long, and full of fidget, dubstep, and lots of other tracks we love here at Ratrabbits.

Oh yeah, a tip for people who want us to check out their musical project by sending us a fan invite on facebook: normally we don't check all of them, so it's better to send us a mail or facebook message with some tracks. I do download or at least listen to everything we get through those channels. That's a lot quicker, and it's better for both of us.
