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.

Clyde Rivers – “Stimulation” ft. Winnie Ford: Transiently Immersive Downtempo Bass

Clyde Rivers’ latest track which dropped in October 2019 may have kicked off with a fairly archetypal semi-ambient EDM Pop prelude. But from there on out, you’ll be immersed in a mix of constantly evolving downtempo bass-driven Electronica.

Winnie Ford’s vocals were the perfect choice for the spacy, futuristic mix which offers constantly driving momentous beats. It’s not all too often you find such synergy between the vocals and the beats in an EDM track. Yet, with Stimulation, the clever use of vocal effects allowed the sweetly magnetic vocals to perfectly gel with the rhythmically transient EDM dubbed beats.

The Los Angeles based artist perceptibly has plenty of ingenuity behind their mixes, it’s only a matter of time before they find themselves in the EDM charts.

Grover Stewart – I’ve Grown: Soulfully Lucid Deep House

If you’re looking for cathartically enamouring music which offers plenty of soul, the last place you’d think to look is the Deep House genre. But Grover Stewart’s debut track “I’ve Grown” which was made in collaboration with Andrew Stephen is a captivating soundscape of nostalgically-inclined groove bedded into a danceable modern mix.

It’s fairly perceptible through listening to the smooth jazzy single that Grover Stewart has been sitting on their talent for far too long. Their ability to orchestrate music which appeals to your rhythmic pulses at the same time as offering authentically sincere resonant expression definitely isn’t something which you hear every day.

It’s going to be incredibly exciting to see how Grover Stewart follows on from I’ve Grown.

Tate Tosto – Down: Melodiously Uplifting Deep House

London-based Deep House producer Tate Tosto has orchestrated yet another uplifting mix of melodiously immersive electronic rhythm with their latest release “Down”.

With Down, Phantasmic female vocals echo over the stylised beats which grip you through Tate Tosto’s rhythmic command. And even after four minutes of being enveloped in the invigoratingly progressive mix, there’s not one hint of repetition, each evolution in the soundscape serves to immerse you deeper in the polished euphoria.

I can only imagine how well it will go down on a dancefloor, but Down is a rare Deep House treat which offers aural catharsis whichever capacity you listen to it in. There’s no denying that it’s a danceable track, yet at the same time, it wouldn’t go amiss on your multipurpose playlists.

Down is due for official release on August 23rd, and you’ll be able to catch it for yourselves by clicking here.

Johnny Turk – Islands in the Sky: The Ultimate Deep House Party Playlist Essential

Summer is on its way, naturally, this means we get treated to hyped sun-soaked offerings of Deep House from up and coming artists looking to make their way into the charts. Turkish-born, Seattle-based producer Johnny Turk is a great contender with his recently released viscerally vibrant mix packed with the paradise-vibes which are all too tempting to dip into come the summer months.

With his latest release “Islands in the Sky” he’s made sure that his roots are audible within the mix, using world music around the more archetypal beats which are the cornerstones of Deep House.

The female vocals and lyrics ensure that you’re left with plenty of imagery as the single unfolds. It may be a short and sweet hit, but there’s no denying that the producer has pulled it all together with an incredibly deft command.

Felix Stenmark Gives Ke$ha’s “Die Young” the Deep House Treatment

Back in 2012, Ke$sha dropped one of the most iconic Pop hits of the decade with “Die Young”. While many people saw the track a flawless anthemic mix, Swedish producer Felix Stenmark saw room for potential. While the prelude may leave you under the impression that he contorted the soundscape to squeeze more ambience out of Die Young, when you get to the bridge Die Young evolves into an ingeniously clever Deep House mix.

The up and coming artist used the structure of the original to weave around layers of hard, bassy, house which switched between ominous and euphoric tonalities. While the original may have been a little too happy for existentialists to really appreciate the beat, you can certainly share in the nihilism with this mix.

Blanka Barbara – Amaranthine Forest: Galactically Ambient Deep House

Amaranthine Forest is the upcoming release from the Ambient Deep House artist Blanka Barbara. Through her previous releases, it is apparent that she an artist who possesses a uniquely cinematic and naturally organic approach to creating her richly textured sound. Yet her latest composition demonstrates her ability to dig deep into nature to find her distinctive patterns and loops which somehow carry as much transience as they pulsate euphoria.

From samples of birdsong, to sounds so sonic they’d be right at home in the Dr Who soundtrack Amaranthine Forest has it all. And the synergy between the acoustic elements and electronic effect is something that you’re going to have to immerse yourself into to truly appreciate the mesmeric power of Amaranthine Forest.

You’ll have to wait a little longer for the release of Amaranthine Forest, but you can check out some of the up and coming artist’s earlier releases by heading over to her official website.

PulpStereo – Doobop Mystery: Sonically Atmospheric Deep House

https://soundcloud.com/user-862452976/doobop-mystery/s-4OR20

PulpStereo’s latest drop “Doobop Mystery” is enough to make a good proportion of other Deep House artists sound sterile. Under the aurally alchemic command of PulpStereo (AKA Torsten Krill) his beats uniquely defy the constraints around the genre to create a rich and organic soundscape. Those who appreciate progressive beats are going to want the German producer’s beats to be a firm fixture of their playlists, the 8-minute tack is momentous from the get-go, yet, hearing the beat evolve throughout the mix is nothing short of euphoric. The rhythm behind the track is a clear giveaway that PulpStereo is as deft with percussion as he is with production and the seamlessly smooth drops and build ups, are just two more reasons why Pulpstereo should be on your radar.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out PulpStereo’s latest drop Doobop Mystery for yourselves, but head over to SoundCloud to catch his earlier mixes and stay up to date with all the latest news from the artist by giving our new favourite up and coming Leftfield artist a follow on Facebook.

Chilli Sauce Boy – Shibuya: Emotively-Charged Deep House

“Shibuya” is just one of the stunningly immersive singles to be released by the up and coming Deep House artist Chilli Sauce Boy. His latest EP “r(ain)”, is a testament to the diversity of his style, yet each track carries the same ability to leave you entranced. Whilst he may have chosen a questionable name to showcase his sound under the aural gems contained in his EP are anything but. Under his deft digital command, his cinematically sad, bass-driven progressions carry an almost haunted magnetism, yet, the glitchy, snappy beats provide plenty of momentum. So, if you’re looking for emotively-charged Deep House to add to your playlists, look no further than the lush, immersive rhythms found in r(ain).

Debauchee – Tier 1: Potently Euphoric Progressive Deep House

Thanks to accessibility of technology pretty much anyone can produce these days, and lord knows they try. Yet, very few artists are blessed with the ability to command rhythm, momentum and drive through their mixes. Debauchee’s latest Progressive Deep House mix “Tier 1”, proved that he was amongst the few with the ability to compose music which gives you very little choice whether that music resonates. Whilst it was clear that Tier 1 is made for the dancefloor, once you get bitten by the earworm I can guarantee you’ll want the mix to feature on your EDM playlists. The multi-layer instrumental mix created by the Helsinki-based artist packs in plenty of bass from start to finish around the harsh snares in the mix which is full of stylistic cuts and drops which would tear holes out of the dancefloor.
