Re: Aarset gear / Turkish sound

i'd go with Electronique Noir or Light Extracts for solo stuff - Light 
Extracts is slightly more chilled and ambient in places, but maybe not 
so strong melodically - they're both superb though. his most recent solo 
effort, Connected is very different and sees him exploring some new areas 
(not so successfully IMO)

i'd also have a crack at Khmer by Nils Petter Molvaer - it's pretty old 
and they've developed hugely, but it has a raw edginess to it that is 

The new NPM "live" album called Streamer is superb and i would highly 
recommend it. i say "live" in inverted commas, because the source material 
was recorded live, but it has been manipuated, remixed and added to. a 
superb listen and flows beautifully. that track Sauna i suggested is my 
favourite track at the moment.

i've been listenting to some trio concerts that Aarset has been doing of 
late (recorded from German radio) - very interesting to hear how he 
his tunes to the bare essentials and then re-vibrates them in a live 
setting. his drummer uses Ableton to augment the band's sound in very 
and pleasing ways...top notch stuff...!
