Classact – Love: Melodic Experimental Electronica

Up and coming artist Classact released their latest serenely mellow mix “Love” on November 6th. Slapping a genre label on the single may prove to be somewhat of a challenge but slipping into the spacey ambience of the mix was made all too easy thanks to the production from Wavy Tre.

With nuanced Hip Hop vibes and lucid downtempo House tones, Love spills plenty of catharsis as the light and intricate beats wave through the melodies. The vocals on the mix find the perfect synergy with the electronic progressions, there may not be all too much in the way of lyrics, but Classact’s vocals still inject plenty of personable warmth into Love.

OLD PUP – FANTASi: Ambiently Immersive Downtempo House

Up and coming Electronica artist OLD PUP has recently dropped their latest EP “New Tricks” and shared with the airwaves a potent amount of aural serenity.

The perfect introduction to the artist and producer’s slightly Lo-Fi, infinitely cathartic style is the standout track “FANTASi” which unravels as a light, spacey, downtempo feat of instrumental Hip Hop and Ambient House.

If you’re looking for artists offering trippy lucid vibes to add to your playlists, you won’t go far wrong with the light, warm tones found in the multilayers of OLD PUP’s deftly smooth mixes. They may be fresh from their inception, but evidently, that hasn’t prevented them from putting out fresh stylistic mixes.

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.

Scotton Drive – Short Loop: Ambient Instrumental Glitch Hop

If your ambient electronica playlists are sounding a little dusty, up and coming US-based experimental artist and producer Scotton Drive’s latest single “Short Loop” is sure to inject plenty of glitchy soul amongst the mix.

Technical Glitch Hip Hop beats, soulfully succinct vocals, and intricately arrestive melodies don’t often go hand in hand. And usually, experimentalism hinders accessibility, but with Short Loop, there’s a real sense that you’re listening to a soundscape constructed through immersive innovation unravelling.

Scotton Drive’s ability to play around with light and deep textures at the same time as throwing you rhythmically off-balance with glitchy breakbeats and still leave you hooked within the mix is a testament to their talent.

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.

Prepare for the Teeth of Autumn with Taūv’s Latest Ambient Electronica Single “In Between Seasons”

There has definitely been no drought on Summer releases from up and coming artists this year, but now we’re at the point where we can almost feel the bitter grips of Autumn, it’s the perfect time to check out Taūv’s latest offering of ambient Electronica “In Between Seasons”.

The track which was released on July 26th aurally encapsulates that often unexplainable feeling of moroseness which hits as our bodies try to make sense of the world around us as they draw us back to the bitterness found in seasonal nostalgia. Maybe I’m projecting, or maybe Taūv has efficaciously written all of that into his latest Downtempo beats which simultaneously bleed melancholy and disconcertment, making In Between Seasons a truly compelling instrumental track to slip right into.

CollabEast – Bota Cumbia: Zen-Inducing Experimental Ambient Electronica

CollabEast (Matt Gleezy) has recently released their mesmeric instrumental electronica mix “Bota Cumbia”; if you’re looking for an immersive soundscape to get lost in, tracks don’t come much more transcendental and colourful than this.

Despite the smorgasbord of contrasting and textured beats and effects, Bota Cumbia is 5-minutes of zen-inducing pioneering ingenuity. Anyone who appreciated the quaint polyphonic orchestral layers weaved into Cosmo Sheldrake’s inventive soundscapes will undoubtedly become enamoured by Bota Cumbia’s vibrant and explorative energy. The lightness of the track is paired with an almost devious inclination from the East Coast artist as he playfully experiments with sonic blasts as sound, inventive uses of bass and fragments of white noise in between.
