Sunbeam42 – Mystery Universe: Ambiently Immersive Experimental Electronica

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.

You can check out Mystery Universe for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud or Bandcamp.

MXK feat Olivia Meade – Air: Haunting Humility from The Underground

MXK’s debut single Air featuring Olivia Meade is a hallowing mix of synth pop which captures the contempt of every women ever scorned as the narrative lyrics unravel, gripping you as they lead you through the track demanding that you share in her melancholy.

Along with acts such as Angel Olsen, London Grammar, Big Thief & Heavy Heart, this artist has got some stiff competition but with their first ever single, MXK and Olivia have blown it out of the park by creating this delectably dark ensemble that you can listen to time and time again.

To say that Air is an empowering track is possibly the biggest understatement I could make. The beautifully stunning singer song writer Olivia has been around on the underground with her guitar since 2009, it’s a tragic sign of the times that this track isn’t being blasted by every mainstream radio station.

Along with her staggering vocal ability, Olivia Meade is also a multi-instrumentalist, but her true talent lies in the passion she packs into her sound to create a powerfully transgressive mix with MXK.
