BBC World Service and documentaries: that's what's cracking in my world. But having overdosed on the realities of this planet, it's time for music to aid with the come down. When I'm not been amazed by the latest intriciacies of The Insomniax's Love She Wants EP in its pre-release form, I'm revelling in the synth-laden nirvana of upstate New Yorker Seth Haley; otherwise known as Com Truise.

This renaissance man has enough “mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk” to keep any beat junky busy for days. Throw in his Komputer Cast mixtapes and you've got plenty of analogue love for a digital age. Definitely makes the world I've been reading about feel like a slightly better place.
