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.

Goldielocks releases their latest pensively emotive 80s synth track “Dysphoria”

Dysphoria isn’t exactly the best feeling in the world. So, it came as no surprise that Goldielocks latest single “Dysphoria” ft. Elva Ray was a fairly pensive aural experience.

Usually, synth-laden EDM hits attempts to force-feed you euphoria, but with Dysphoria, Goldielocks wasn’t unsuccessful in creating a soundscape which accurately reflects the insidious disconcertment which comes along with doses of dysphoria.

Without a hint of shame, I’ll admit that I was choking back the tears by the time Dysphoria reached the outro. The Sydney, Australia-based artist and producer perceptibly has a deft ability utilise rhythmic pulses and ominous electronic effect to relay resonantly captivating melancholy. That may all sound a little bleak, but Dysphoria is still a stunning soundscape – especially with the inclusion of Elva Ray’s harmonically celestial vocals.

STATIS – ABDUCTION: Intergalactically Intense Hip Hop

Breaking Dubstep artist STATIS has recently released their atmospherically sonic mix “ABDUCTION”. As you can probably guess by the name, there’s plenty of Sci-Fi futurism weaved into the track through inventive sampling. But what you probably won’t be prepared for is the sheer veracity of the relentlessly reverberant bass; prepare your eardrums for a pounding.

ABDUCTION may not be for the faint-hearted, but for anyone who likes their Dubstep filthy and fast, you’re sure to appreciate the caustically mind-blowing mix. And plenty of people have already jumped on the perceptible hype of the US-based artist. It’s evident that STATIS knows just how to structure a captivatingly chaotic track capable of hooking you in right from the very first soul-rattling offering of bass right up to the outro.

Gold Blooded Woman drops their latest euphoric dance hit “Blood is Blood”

Up and coming Dance House artist Gold Blooded Woman dropped their latest anthemically danceable track “Blood is Blood” on September 24th sharing with the airwaves an accessibly immersive radio-ready hit.

Even though Blood is Blood has plenty in common with hit 90s dance tracks, the artist didn’t fail to weave plenty of fresh, new, vibrant energy into the mix. There’s a fair amount of Disco Funk infused into the beats, giving Blood is Blood an infectious snappy rhythm which may need a little bit of convincing to leave your synapses alone. Any fans of Daft Punk, The Weeknd, and Deadmau5 will definitely want to put Gold Blooded Woman on their radar.

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.

Malmo – Bladerunner Memories (Klaas Remix): EDM Futurism meets Synthy Sci-Fi Nostalgia.

Bergen, Norway-based artist Malmo has recently dropped the Klaas Remix of their infectiously popular ambiently compelling track “Bladerunner Memories”. Klaas weaved brand-new energy into Malmo’s usual futuristically mesmeric soundscapes which share plenty of the same synthy immersive aural alchemy as the original soundtrack.

The highly danceable, slightly apocalyptic mix makes the drops even more arrestive when they hit as an impressive amount of euphoria spills from the progressions. If you’re always on the lookout for ahead of the curve EDM hits which also allow you to revel in Sci-Fi-Esque nostalgia, look no further than this high-octane remix which stands as a testament to both Malmo and Klaas.

Gaisma – Trusting the Light: Alt Ambient Electronica Playlist Essential

Whatever your musical inclinations are, up and coming Indie Electronica artist Gaisma’s single “Trusting the Light” is guaranteed to leave you transfixed.

I’ve heard a fair amount of progressive music as of late, but no soundscape can quite compare to Trusting the Light. The 3-minute orchestration kicks off with darkly explorative neo-classical synthy tones laced with ominous effect. And only when you are mid-way through Trusting the Light does the sense of rhythm grip you. I’d got complacent in my assumption that the single was purely instrumental – the instrumental arrangement never allowed you to dare to believe that there was something missing. But Gaisma’s strikingly stunning vocals kick in towards the end, and they felt like the light at the end of the aural tunnel.

G-Candy Releases Their Second Progressive Bass-Drenched EDM Mix “Welcome”

Up and coming artist G-Candy has recently dropped their latest instrumental EDM mix “Welcome” if you’re looking for sharp hooks and soul-shattering basslines, look no further.

Even though the instrumental mix contains some unholily filthy bass-drenched drops, there’s also plenty of smooth and transient breaks in between which make the drops even more caustically captivating. Each new progression in Welcome serves to bring you closer into the blistering, reverberating rhythm. It wouldn’t be a stretch to call Welcome an ingenious hit. There’s no denying that Welcome is an incredibly danceable mix when the rhythm is in full flow. It’s going to pretty exciting to see where G-Candy takes their deep bass-driven House sound next.

Hranrad – Ghosts Don’t Cry: Ethereally Pensive, Hypnotically Arrestive Dark Electronica

While I expected a slightly haunting soundscape to ensue after hitting play on a track titled “Ghosts Don’t Cry”, I definitely wasn’t prepared for the ethereal pensive grip possessed by Hranrad’s single.

Ghosts Don’t Cry is just one of the transfixing singles found on the up and coming Berlin-based artist’s debut album “Anima”. While each of them offers an original, authentic smorgasbord of aural ingenuity, it’s safe to say I won’t be forgetting Ghosts Don’t Cry in a hurry. Ghosts may not cry, but I certainly felt the melancholic sting – even the meta poetry behind the title of the track had me a little floored.

Hranrad clearly isn’t your average electronica artist, his alchemic approach to his mixes combined with his darkly intellectual style definitely isn’t something that you hear every day. Thanks to the progressive nature of the single, you’re treated to constant evolutions and mutations of the cathartic and almost hypnotic beats. Then, there are the phantasmic, slightly disconcerting vocals lacing the track with ominosity.
