Ry sends us post-covid inspiration with real ”Talking To Myself”

Ry Lee is an artist-producer from Binghamton in the United States. He dances his way onto the floor with ”Talking To Myself”. This is an 80’s inspired journey from soul, funk back to electronica.

The mysterious producer and engineer from NY is here with a brand new song that spikes our interest in earth travelling waves. Ry has a style that is a truly intriguing edm song that fills our speakers and marshal’s a return to the dance floor. Soon. In the meantime we can play this loud and send it to many a friend.

Talking To Myself” is a fabulous release from Ry who is a fantastic young artist who is on the way to fitting heights with his smooth edm style. This is a well-done song that has been playing in my ears again and again. This artist has reached the end of the line with lockdown and is starting to get tired of being at home. He misses the conversations of real humans.

10 year vet, UK producer TwoSeven joins up with a summer hammer music throw Olympic Gold Medal Team as LXT and Brendan Mills connect on dreamy-electro sax-infused summer jam to groove your body all day, ”Alone”. Have you ever been with someone and you keep on breaking up but also can’t get enough of each other?

”Corporate Anthem” by New York’s George Sarpola is trippy ride to space island

George Sarpola is a freelance musician, drummer and educator in New York City. He makes different music. I call it Sarpola. I feel like this was made in a planet very far away and transported here somehow. When you turn this up it feels like you are in a tv game and you have no control.

George is one talented guy. Currently a member of the bands Kaptive and Bother, he has performed throughout the USA with various rock and pop groups, orchestras, concert bands and jazz groups. Quite a creative isn’t he?

Corporate Anthem” from George Sarpola is such a different experience. Taken off his new album ”Fugue State”. he is such a ground-breaker with his music and blends so many instruments and samples that gives me so many different emotions. I feel a bit paranoid at times as I wonder if I’m actually real. This has to be music for a video game or movie, its that good. Somehow I get the feeling that George is telling us not to be robots and instead breakout and live our own lives, away from the mainstream. This music won’t be everyone’s cup of team but it will intrigue and blow your mind.

Click on the Bandcamp link to hear all of this ground-breaking artist’s music and treat your soul.

Indigo Hush’s ”Drugs Are For The Weekend” is a sobering story of love and addiction

The rush of the crowd, the smoke filled energy of the party combined with the feeling of being a part of something special. This is the vibe that most of us feel when we could go out, before quarantine days of course. Indigo Hush is a new act on the scene that paints us a picture of how it feels when the party all ends. This is reality.

With a dark & moody energy, ”Drugs Are For The Weekend” is a song that should warn us of getting a bit too deep into the party scene. It has a bleak undertone and Indigo Hush hits the nail on the head with his experiences and ultimately delivers a commendable track with a haunting beat that is executed perfectly for the song.

Drugs Are For The Weekend” is a sobering tale from new Indie Electro artist Indigo Hush as he takes us on a journey through the chipped paint walls of the local club featuring fake friends, showing us how it feels to like someone but only to lose all feeling of attraction when the drugs get a bit too much. Designed for the weekend, temptation takes over and the artist methodically and painfully accepts his fate, concluding that it isn’t really worth it.

Stream this and more from Indigo Hush on his Spotify channel.

Josh Coker releases introspective debut single ”Alone Again”

Self-proclaimed Bedroom musician Josh Coker streams through our speakers with his debut Electronic song called ”Alone Again”. This feels like a song created due to COVID-19, as he vividly describes how he feels right now with a lack of energy and the feeling that his world is spinning from all the time alone and over-thinking in his bedroom.

Feeling the bad energy around him, Josh is clearly in his own head. This feeling is totally understandable due to the current situation. This solo musician is trying to wrap his head around everything and has turned to music to help. A wise choice indeed. Feeling overwhelmed is completely natural in 2020.

With a strong voice, intriguing lyrics and lively skills in production, Josh Coker pulls out all the stops here to get his debut single noticed. He has achieved that in every way possible on ”Alone Again”, as Josh punches way above his weight while showing his self-aware mindset and youthful creativity of the highest order.

Stream the Spotify debut of this promising young artist.

Stefan – The Surface (Radio Edit): Obscurely Progressive Electronica

The feat of aural insanity which breaking Alt Electronica artist Stefan offers through their standout track “The Surface” is not to be missed. Especially for fans of darkly obscure progressive Electronica.

What starts off as a laid-back Instrumental EDM Hip Hop soundscape seamlessly morphs into a high-octane Trance hit complete with plenty of pulsating energy.

I’ve listened to my fair share of experimental electronica. And it’s safe to say that Stefan is offering peerlessly distinctive mixes. Their devilish ability to hook you into a mix which will never allow you to guess what’s coming is all too refreshing. And it’s all the more reason to place The Surface on your playlists so you can give it the repeat attention it will demand once you’ve heard it.

8udDha bl0od – YAng: Experimental Electronic Transcendence

If your usual transcendent soundscapes don’t allow you to reach the same plateau anymore, you’ll want to check out up and coming experimental artist 8udDha bl0od’s uniquely upraising single “YAng”.

YAng was ingeniously released alongside their similar mix “Y!n” in March 2020. The tones are slightly more ominous in Yang, however, both of the immersive instrumental mixes efficaciously dominate your consciousness. So, even though you can detect phantasmal hints of melancholy and conflict, by the time you reach the outro, you’ll feel suitably aurally cleansed.

Tracks such as YAng which require a deep intrinsic investment may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But we can definitely appreciate 8udDha bl0od’s ability to lock into your psyche and arrest your emotions.

Sun Lite – Dog and Pony Show: Transiently Cathartic, Psychedelically Captivating Ambient Electronica

If it has been a while since an electronica artist has left you pleasantly captivated, hit play on the indulgently soulful yet spacey mix “Dog & Pony Show” from artist and producer Sun Lite.

The single possesses an unparalleled amount of transiently cathartic groove inspired by the same blissful mellifluous tones of King Crimson, while accidentally being of appeal to any fans of Pink Floyd.

Immersing yourself into Dog & Pony Show is the aural equivalent to throwing yourself into a rabbit hole of kaleidoscopic colour. There’s an ethereal air to the single, but in its essence, it’s a soundscape rooted in abstract serenity.

The instrumentals may be light and restorative, but Sun Lite took the opportunity to use the ambient track to highlight the prolific issue of populism. All things considered, Sun Lite feels like the artist we never knew we needed right now.

Margot White – Face to Face: Artfully Distinctive Electronic Indie Pop

Up and coming Electronic Indie Pop artist Margot White recently made her debut with the unforgettable playfully ominous earworm “Face to Face”.

With Margot White’s experimentalism and infectious attitude combined, my mind quickly pulled reminiscences between hers and Peaches’  unapologetically expressive Pop. But you’ll also find spacey innovative influences from artists such as Bjork which allows Face to Face to fall under the label of artistic instead of alternative.

It really is no surprise that so many people have been drawn to Margot White’s sultry succinct sound. Comparisons may be there to iconic artists, yet that iconic feel is all too perceptible within Face to Face.

SBX – Vipers: Ambiently Dystopian Alt Electronica

“Vipers” is the latest mix to be released by up and coming London-based Alt Electronica artist SBX. If you’re looking for chilled Electronica which comes with plenty of bite, your playlists will thank you for putting SBX on your radar.

Finding distinction in instrumental electronica is usually like looking for a needle in a haystack, but there is a perceptible amount of authenticity within Vipers. While there are some elements of ambience infused into the single, there’s also an ensnaring amount of veracity which has weaved its way into the mix through the almost tribalistic and warm percussion. Combine that with spacey transcendental effects and a slightly dystopian soundtrack feel and Vipers is an electronic mix not easily forgotten.
