SFM Select 5 feat. Sepehr

S: “This is Sepehr - I'm a producer/live electronic artist from San Francisco. Here are some electronic selections that have been getting me through the days lately. New, old, dark, light and everything in between. I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I do.”

1. Upsammy - Words R Inert

Its really simple with clean sounds, but gives you think sinking feeling like you’re experiencing something extravagant like 2001: A Space Odysssey. Pure Class.”


2. Visonia & Dopplereffekt - Die Reisen

Embedded content: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2CldbV6sRk S: “This track has a bass line that envelops your soul, then rolls you into a ball, spits you into a strange part of the universe, then pulls you back in right as the track finishes. Anything Dopplereffekt does is gold and they have a unique way of making the simplest synths sound as powerful as a full orchestra.”


3. Levon Vincent - Woman Is The Devil

Embedded content: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRaq3kRMyj0 S: “A track that I will forever come back to for inspiration. It is one of those tracks that has just gotten better after every single year since I first heard it. It captures such a raw human feeling but also has a lightly menacing theme to it. Classic.”


4. Ludwig Franzen - Lie

Embedded content: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3d35vOm5uaI S: “This is a semi-cheesy house track that hits every soft spot in my heart. The sample and the overall feel of the song reminds me of some of the first really deep house tracks that got me hooked when I first moved to San Francisco, at a time when remnants of the soul of the city were still around. Day time block parties, crushes on hip girls, and everything else.”


5. Doxa Sinistra - The Other Stranger

Embedded content: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGZY23ZHbVw S: “I finally discovered this track recently after hearing it a couple times before and always wondering what it was. The feeling of finally (and randomly) finding it was overpowering. This is one of those tracks that makes you realize the type of pure soul that electronic tracks can derive just like any other classic band tune. Also, it was released in 1985 :O”
