Mystery Universe is just one of the ambiently immersive feats of experimental electronica found on up and coming artist Sunbeam42’s latest EP Journey which was released on April 27th.
Through the US producer’s use of deftly soft tones, intricately unpredictable progressions, and spatial effects, they orchestrated a beguiling mix which is all too easy to slip into. Furthermore, there’s little chance that your consciousness will want to falter from the forbearing rhythms.
Mystery Universe may stray from the mainstream sound, but accessibility is the essence of the stunningly produced tension-stripping soundscape.
There’s a sense of depth and personality in Mystery Universe which is rarely found within instrumental Ambient Electronica. Sunbeam42 is definitely one to watch if you like to keep your downtempo electronica playlists topped up with breaking talent.
