Apologies to anyone waiting for In Praise of Shadows to be available again - the store should be online in a couple of days, once I've stocked up on packaging. Expect a TYFTH post asap!
Huge thanks to Shimotsukei and everyone who joined us for the Lucky Lotus broadcast of our b2b set. Hope to say more on the site soon but for now you can find the set on the FINRG soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/finrg-recordings/shimotsukei-vs-plasmadancer-lucky-lotus-8
@Sherkel Dear me a month late, apologies...very happy to hear about the track. And yup, I love TYFTH and freeform so much that in usual circumstances it's a pleasure to stay on top of both. No plans to give them up here, either!
Here it is - a recording of my 2014 set at CODEX3. I reused parts of it in a Lucky Lotus mix the following year, but this version has a better tracklist overall, I think.
TYFTH is back in semi-hibernation at the moment, but I'm still working on a couple of things when time allows. Also, to make up for the lack of live sets lately there'll be an old event recording going online for the first time in the next day or two - keep an eye on youtube for that.
I have around half a set organised, but the next TYFTH Live isn't quite ready yet. Look out for it in March!
polaritia has posted an excellent, fairly beginner-friendly guide to freeform production, with some helpful visuals for non-Japanese readers: https://voidinjection.tumblr.com/post/182420372507/%E3%81%A4%E3%81%8F%E3%81%A3%E3%81%A6%E3%81%82%E3%81%9D%E3%81%BCfreeform-hardcore

@Sherkel Strange, nothing's showing up behind the scenes, as far as I can tell... I guess the first thing to try would be an alternate title, but if it keeps playing up then I can have a try at posting it too.
Big thanks to everyone who joined me for the Alek-only set last night. It was really enjoyable as usual and it feels good to have managed a stream at shorter-than-usual notice. The video will be up on YouTube, with tracklist, asap.
After some more practice I've decided that this weekend's stream will be an Alek Szahala-only set. As well as working on transitions for the eventual, longer, Alek-only set, I'll be taking the chance to play some less-commonly heard tracks.
Already decided on the opening for next week's stream, as well as a couple of mid-set tracks.
Some older event videos are being reupped to the TYFTH YouTube over the next few days:
@Jambato Thanks for the help! I saw some twitter talk of the meetup, and I'll be dropping them a line soon.
One favourite track of the year: Yuuhei Morita & Neoform - V.P.N.
In the meantime, have been meaning to mention this excellent #goatrance track from Khetzal. The other tracks on the comp are hit and miss, but this could be one of his best ever.
Mostly AFK until early next month, but will try to get a post up in the next day or so.
