Here is another gem that Twerk passed along my way. He was asked to master it for Audibleoddities, and couldn’t resist letting me get a peak at it. One of my favorite IDM cds of 2007 for sure, and self released at that. Based in San Francisco, Retic, better known as Douglas Teike, combines influences from a lot of well known IDM names into a nice pot of stew. This disc is a guaranteed delight for fans of the Merck catalog (Landau meets Deru and Machinedrum). Probably would have released this myself, if things had continued on with Merck. You can track down a copy on CDbaby, and I hear he has a new album nearing completion soon as well.
