I have recently become aware that many of my posts are drifting increasingly further away from the sentiment at the heart of Stacking Beats (beats, bass and shaking our behinds), with slower tempos and diminshing bass. And I'm afraid this post is to follow in that trend - Dream Koala is French, but based in Berlin, and rivals the xx in making the best atmospheric, minimal electronic music around. Having only recently stumbled upon his music, my immediate favourites are 'Oydessy' and 'We Can't Be Friends'. Not exactly cheery, Dream Koala's music manages to be both dreamlike and gripping at the same time.
