The Rotary Fifth – Take Your Aim: Artfully Ethereal Dream Pop

It may not be all too often that we get the pleasure of describing Pop as stunning, but with the artful mesmerism contained in The Rotary Fifth’s single “Take Your Aim” we were left with few other ways to allude to the striking serenity contained in the soundscape.

The wavy lucidity behind Take Your Aim will be of plenty of appeal to fans of Shoegaze artists such as Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine. Yet, the effervescent tone of the single moves Take Your Aim away from the usual dreary tones of Shoegaze to orchestrate a sound which doesn’t just border on ethereal, it’s gone to the other side and sent a postcard.

Dan Rochester has released their most pensively captivating single yet with “Falling Leaves”

Ahead of the release of their latest album “A Graveyard of Stars” which is due for release on November 22nd, up and coming guitar virtuoso Dan Rochester has released their standout single “Falling Leaves”.

There was no forgetting Dan Rochester after they first appeared on our radar with their captivating debut single “Nightfall” earlier this year. But this time, they’ve adopted a darker, almost haunted tone – for the prelude at least, as the track progresses and the instrumental arrangement becomes more eclectic and you’ll find yourself immersed within a semi-orchestral soundscape which boasts both melancholy and fragility. I’m not even ashamed to say I didn’t get to the end of Falling Leaves dry-eyed, and that’s definitely a first from a guitar-led instrumental single.

Electronica Artist Mr Swince is Set to Make Their Debut with Their First Album “Beats on the Brain”

Mr Swince

Electronica artist Mr Swince is set to make their debut with their ambiently euphoric Tech House album “Beats on the Brain”.

Sitting on the slightly more sedate side of Tech House, the tracks found on the album offer a distinctively intricate transient tone. You’ll need very little convincing when it comes to becoming arrested by deftly contorted rhythms Mr Swince offers in their naturally flowing soundscapes which constantly make unpredictable evolutions.

Their upcoming album stands as a testament to the versatility of their talent. The album also makes it highly perceptible that their music was never created to fit in neat boxes. Instead, if the listener is so inclined, they can attach their own labels whilst being enveloped by the blissful minimalistic beats.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out the debut album from Mr Swince but hit follow on SoundCloud and await the electronically constructed feats of mesmerism.

Joint Custody – Q: Soulfully Lucid Contemporary R&B

Up and coming contemporary R&B artist Joint Custody has recently released their latest sublimely cathartic single “Q”.

God knows I’ve listened to my fair share of assimilative 90s-inspired R&B in recent years, but thankfully Q unfolds like a breath of fresh air to lungs suffocated by the banality of uninspired R&B.

Q is an intricately quaint soundscape which comes as a transient result of Joint Custody constant perseverance with their experimentalism. The single runs through like a lucid jazzy dream thanks to the unique mix of ambience, Funk and soul.

There may be an Indie vibe behind Q, but the production quality is flawless, and the succinct magnetism of the instrumental arrangement is only matched by the mellifluously soft and soulfully phantasmal vocals.

BisonBison Release Their Latest Ambiently Rhythmic Electronica Single “Expanded”


Ahead of the release of their debut album “Hover”, up and coming Electronica artist BisonBison have dropped the perfect teaser with their ethereally ambient single “Expanded” which was released on October 24th.

Expanded finds an enthralling balance between New Age rhythms and contemporary Electronica production which allows the single to unfold as accessibly familiar whilst immersing you in a pioneeringly captivating mix.

With a prelude which shares reminiscence with Ramin Djawadi’s more melodious scores leading into organically contorted meandering Eastern rhythms, the fluidity of the soundscape in Expanded is enough to allow you to feel as though you’ve been separated from your bones.

The vocals also play a heavy hand in transforming Expanded from a cathartically arrestive single into one which will stay with you for long after it has faded out.

R3ALAX – #notomorrow: Ambiently Accordant R&B  

“#notomorrow” is the sonorously smooth latest single from up and coming ambient R&B artist R3ALAX which offers the same (if not more) restorative allure as any revered guided meditation video. But instead of being told how to feel, #notomorrow contains lyrics which act as olive branches of resonance.

The soundscape finds the perfect balance between cathartic ambience and authentically poised romanticism. As you listen to the lush downtempo beats progress, you’ll simultaneously get to drink in R3ALAX’s understated but extremely arrestive vocals as they verse the soul-exposing lyrics which leave plenty of room for personal interpretation. But at the same time, #notomorrow isn’t a song which deals in vagueness. Whatever kind of day you’ve had, it’s safe to say that you’ll feel lighter after hitting play on #notomorrow.

Antoine Don – Good Morning: Ambiently Smooth Downtempo House

LA-based artist, producer and engineer Antoine Don has recently released their latest offering of ambiently smooth downtempo instrumental House with the short and sweet mix “Good Morning”.

The hazy soundscape perfectly captures the lucidity experienced through snapping back into focus in the morning. It would be a fairly trippy way to start the day, but if those are the vibes you go for, Good Morning comes highly recommended for your morning playlists.

Antoine Don has made plenty of waves in LA working as an artist and mix engineer for DubRoom Studios. With their tendency to blend a myriad of styles together to creating resonantly lush tracks, it comes as no great surprise.

Ples Jones feat Coranny – Bleu Light: Cinematically Ambient Electronica

“Bleu Light” is the lucidly captivating latest single from up and coming Ambient EDM artist and producer Ples Jones. For this track, they borrowed the deft vocal cords of female vocalist Coranny. Coranny’s vocals brought a powerfully soulful dynamic to the otherwise slightly alien mix which was doused in layers of sonically lush reverb.

It is only when the track fades out you realise just how truly hypnotically immersive the single was. Ambient electronica doesn’t get much more cinematically accordant than this. While there are plenty of EDM artists putting mixes out there, tracks as rhythmically arrestive and cathartic as Bleu Light are still incredibly few and far between.

It’s serene, it’s soulful, and as soon as you hook into the soft and deftly reflective melody, you’ll soon start to get an idea why so many people are hitting replay on the mesmerizingly delicate soundscape.

While there’s a perceptible amount of melancholy weaved into Dangerous, the single still resonates as an uplifting and empowering mix. You’ll just need to prepare for your heartstrings to get yanked a little by the deeply moving single.
