A Strangely Isolated Place shares a great recollection of some of the Ambient, Downbeat and mellow Electronica goodness that made 2018 another year of fantastic new music.
One hour of mellow dopeness.
“I recorded a mix for Resident Advisor stringing together an hour of danceable club tracks without any kick drums. I’ve been playing a lot of this stuff in my sets over the last few years and have been meaning to record a mix like this for a while.” Quite an exciting approach. Even more so…
One hour of music that has been resonating with my soul during these past years, most of which I spent in the close proximity of great bodies of salt water.
Dutch duo Wanderwelle is responsible for some rather exciting music at the moment, both in the fields of Ambient and Dub Techno. Their recent DJ mix for Monument takes us on a smooth ride through electronic genres and tempi.
Jon Hopkins’ last album would have been the perfect terminus for a musical career that burns out rather than fading away. However, he faced the extremely high anticipations and released another album. Singularity might not be quite as groundbreaking and innovative as the last album – but it surely is a worthy successor. Ecstasy and…
Adam Freeland – a man who needs no further introduction to readers of this blog. He just dropped a brand new DJ mix for Solid Steel Radio and, no big surprise here, it’s pretty damn eclectic, diverse and catchy. Also he told some words about his life in the desert and his most recent creative…
While the Psytrance scene seems to be stuck in an endless loop of the same artists playing the same sound for many years already, other electronic music genres are getting deeper, more ethereal and even psychedelic in very fresh and innovative ways. What happens at the Ranch-o-Relaxo gatherings in Australia is a perfect example for…
Max Cooper facilitates an ethereal, highly musical journey through a wide range of contemporary electronic genres.
Extending over 1 hour and bordering the realms of cheesiness at some points, here’s a sonic kingdom full of ecstatic, sunlit soundscapes.
A musical journey from Dope Beats to mellow dancability and back: Dolph delivers the goods and proves himself once again to be a highly eclectic DJ.
Complementing the release of their mutual album Particle Fields, Robot Koch and Savannah Jo Lack take us on a nearly hour-long time travel through the soothing realms of Classic, Neo Classic and mellow electronic music.
Robot Koch played a live set for Boiler Room together with vocalist Delhia De France. It took place in front of video projection that provided the pefect visual match for the warm, organic sound of this performance.
Rampue fires at only around 110 beats per minute, but what he creates is perfidiously energetic and driving – it really feels much faster once you get into the groove. Slow-motion House rhythms provide the bass-heavy backbone for etheral chants and ethnic instrumentations from all around the world.
Absolutely stunning live session by Floating Points and his 10-person ensemble.
Just before dropping their third album, Moderat present a new DJ mix. Broken beat textures are the backbone for deep, cinematic soundscapes.
Nicolas Jaar delivers a new DJ mix for Resident Advisor and, no surprise here, it’s a class of its own. Excellent track selection from a multitude of genres, skilfully blended into one smooth listening experience. Download Link
Lulacruza present their first mixtape. More than one hour of Nu LatAm goodness, including many tracks from the Argentinian / Colombian duo itself.
Speaking loosely, Hodge’s music fits into that middle-ground between Dubstep’s weight and Techno’s fluidity that Bristol producers have a knack for doing so well. That’s what FACT mag says about its latest mix, and that’s a very accurate description of what you get to hear. Raw, bass-heavy and wonderfully tripped-out, yet with an uplifting twist.…
The Danish sampling maniacs known as Den Sorte Skole dropped their new album today. Reflecting the unique production approach of the duo, Indians & Cowboys is a skilful collage of rhythms and sounds from a multitude of countries, music genres and eras. Some tracks are surprisingly heavy on the beats, others float along with barely…
