J. Anthony Gomez has made their debut with the entrancingly trippy soundscape “Hypnagogia”

Electronica artist and producer J. Anthony Gomez has made their debut with their absorbingly mesmeric soundscape “Hypnagogia

For those not in the know, Hypnagogia is the trippy part between wakefulness and sleep where you’re not quite in control of your consciousness and hallucinations can manifest.

J. Anthony Gomez paid a fitting ode to the mental state with the almost tribal explorative loops which meandered with no mind to traditional time signatures. Instead, they weaved through the ambiently multi-layered atmospheric soundscape arresting your pulses until the track succinctly fades to quiescent resolving close.

We will definitely be paying attention to future releases from J. Anthony Gomez, their ability to deftly craft hypnotic electronic textures.

You can check out J. Anthony Gomez’s single Hypnagogia for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud. Probably wouldn’t recommend listening to the mind-altering mix while driving.

Gixn – Distant World: Indulgently Hazy Ambient Hip Hop

https://open.spotify.com/track/2E15FZWhdofD85UCJKNTvT

There’s no greater testament to an artist’s talent than their ability to provide cathartic escapism with their soundscapes. Which is exactly what you’ll sink into when you hit play on the transfixing debut album Mixed Emotions by up and coming Alternative artist Gixn.

Just as the album says on the tin, each track will offer a new facet of Gixn’s soul, but each of the tracks come steeped in light accordance. Ingesting lyrical resonance has never been easier.

The introduction track “Distant World” kicks off as a hazy lullaby dreamscape before Gixn’s sweet harmonic vocals start to interplay with the affably resolving instrumentals.

With the lyrics unravelling like an unfiltered stream of consciousness and the melodic beats offering a smorgasbord of ambience, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more benevolently magnetic track on the airwaves from any artist – iconic or new!

You can slip into Gixn’s 2020 album for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
