The Golden Apples of the Sun presents

subsurfer mixtapes.. listen like its 2007…

Over a decade ago way back in 2007 the Subsurfer mixes appeared. They were uploaded over a few years by a ‘mysterious’ blogger (well mysterious from what I was able to find out back then and again after some more recent research). The mixes were uploaded on LiveJournal the obscure and controversial predominantly Russian social networking site.

They were great selections of mellow/chillwave/glo-fi/electronica/folktronica and early dreampop. There were around 30 mixes. I had a look online and I do not think you cannot find them but I downloaded them all and still have them so with respect to the legacy of Subsurfer’s great curatorial work I am going to upload a few of the best ones for your listening pleasure.

subsufer 707

subsurfer 707 is definitely a Golden Apples favourite with its sun-glistened Beach Boys, Panda Bear, Grizzly Bear vibe and beautitul sequencing.

Paper Dollhouse Mixtape

Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: ,

New LP

Paper Dollhouse are Astrud Steehouder amd Nina Bosnic, and have been a Golden Apples favourite from right back to 2012’s debut LP A Box Painted Black on Bird Records. The new 2018 LP The Sky Looks Different Here sees Astrud and Nina on Moondome Records – read a detailed review at Fact Magazine here

Mixtape

Secret Thirteen Mix 219 created by Paper Dollhouse sways between sharp intelligent dancefloor grooves and introspective abstract sounds. Thus the kosmische fantasy fairytale of Emerald Web nicely gives way to the darkly futuristic sci-fi drone of “Sleep Deprivation 2” by UK IDM masterminds The Black Dog and the naive and chaotic “Every Day” by AFX. It’s no wonder that we find quite a number of tracks by Paper Dollhouse on here helping to trace the influences and evaluate their relative impact on Astrud and Nina’s sound. The selection shifts gears quite rapidly and gets even more intense towards the second half with a classic electro cut from Drexciya, a fast-paced Basic Channel remix, putting their signature dub techno into an almost trance-like rush, or the chilled pulsations of Nordic italo producer Skatebård. The same pattern is maintained with Legowelt’s two lesser known aliases, Seaside Houz Boys and Sammy Osmo, with their respective weird house and kosmische grooves.

Radio Show – 11 June 2017- Episode 324

In episode 324 we ask the question; can a group meditation enhance the listening experience of the Golden Apples collective consciousness? Clear your mind of the thoughts of what happened this morning, or yesterday, of what you’re cooking for dinner tonight and of work tomorrow and instead focus on your breath, on the temperature of the room, the breeze on your skin, the feeling of that chair or mat underneath you and on the sounds you hear as they happen. If a thought bubbles up, thats cool… acknowledge it, then let it fall away and shift your focus back to the now  – presented by Jesse Yuen
