Awl – Hold Back: Glacially Entrancing Electronica

Until up and coming Electronica artist Awl dropped their latest mix “Hold Back” Breakbeat Electronica had never felt quite so glacial.

But instead of allowing the cold tones in Hold Back to create a bleak and drab soundscape, Awl was inventive with the ethereal layers of reverb he ran through the mix giving the instrumentals a uniquely nuanced transcendent entrancing vibe.

The London-based artist perceptibly hasn’t failed in stamping down their signature sound through Hold Back which is just one of the tracks which you will find on their 2020 4-track EP “Endless”. We really wish it was endless – there are very few soundscapes which are as easy to siphon the ambient catharsis from as the tracks you will find on Endless.

You can check out Hold Back for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
