Aorta Project – Perfect Form: Enchantingly Psychotropic Ambient Electronica

AORTAPROJECT is the debut album from Aorta Project, the enchantingly psychotropic release takes electronically-crafted atmospheric ambience to another level in a way which will enamour fans of Deadmau5 and Jon Hopkins. Yet, discernibly, Aorta Project stamped down their transcendent signature sound with their debut – especially with their lead single, ‘’Perfect Form’, which was written and performed by Steven Sheffield & Allanah Maarten and mixed & mastered by Ashton Nagle.

Perfect Form allows you to indulge in over 7 minutes of evocatively progressive aural ingenuity which despite the polished production, still offers a direct intimacy which isn’t often heard in computer-generated music. It’s a track which will have you at the edge of your seat or rhythmically arrested on a dancefloor, wherever you are when it hits you, prepare to be overwhelmed by Aorta Project’s ability to command your rhythmic pulses. With the hauntingly sultry female vocals switching between whispers and mantra-like commands, expect the vocal notes to cut like glass.

Gigi Hare adds layers of atmospherics to the Electronic Dark Pop Genre with her latest single “Ice”

“Ice” is the latest single from up and coming Berlin-based artist Gigi Hare; an artist with a tangible ability to take moody, dark and atmospheric soundscapes to the next level.

The slow, tentative tempo of the dark electronica pop single lets the reverb from the synth take charge at the beginning of the single before moving up to thunderously resounding drum rolls. But one thing which does remain as a constant are Gigi Hare’s mesmeric vocals which come dangerously close to bleeding into the mix with the ingenious use of reverb. But the raw essence of the lyricism and Gigi Hare’s raw expressive layers of harmony don’t fail to keep you arrested from start to finish.
