Julien Fade & M4rk Jordan – Boujee: Brutally Alchemic EDM

There’s EDM, and there’s the brutally alchemic aural beast which German producer Julien Fade created in collaboration with M4rk Jordan.

Right from the prelude, it’s perceptible that “Boujee” wasn’t orchestrated by producers who were a little Ableton curious. It wouldn’t surprise me if Julien Fade & M4rk Jordan had perfectly mapped the human psyche to find out just how to dexterously align their high-octane mix to the body’s rhythmic pulses.

Even though the textures and sheer amount of bass are hard-hitting, Boujee has kept the mix vibrant, danceable, and perhaps most importantly, unforgettable. There’s no droning Techno here, just volatile progressions worthy of losing your mind to on a sticky dancefloor.

So, if you’re looking for a track that leaves you a little too unsure with yourselves after it has left you in a sated daze you can check out Boujee for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.

Lo Digz – Chasing Sunsets: Cathartically Oceanic Future Bass

Of all the Future Bass Summer party anthems I’ve checked out in 2019, there are none which hit with quite the same momentous resonance as the emerging artist Lo Digz’s summer party drop “Chasing Sunsets”; it practically drips with vivid colours of seasonal nostalgia.

Void of any obtusely high-pitched vocals screeching vapid lyrics, the instrumental soundscape unravels at a progressively immersive pace, allowing the sun-soaked vibrantly bass-driven beats to pull you along with the tide of deftly produced Electronica. The US-based artist possesses a palpable amount of stylistic maturity, and while it’s evident in their earlier releases, Chasing Sunsets stands as a testament to their talent when it comes to orchestrating euphorically rhythmic contemporary hits.

Toyah Hoetzel set to release latest single ‘Together’

Electronic producer Toyah Hoetzel released her last single “Together” on the 8th of August 2019, following up her last work ‘Divine Presence’ in August 2018.

With a promising synth intro, the track opens up to a set of dance-y beats for a sapient mix of house and electronica, all accompanied by melancholic vocals that develop around simple lyrics of a frustrated relationship. “You are not alone”, she sings as the main claim.

Influenced by acts such as Chemical Brothers and Karin Park, Toyah becomes a piece of Melbourne’s dance scene emerging for her commercial pitch, and boldly compares to fellow peers and producers.

Allyson Band Reinvents a Classic with a Cover of “Hellhole Ratrace” (Keith Sweaty Remix)

Any fans of the original “Hellhole Ratrace” by GIRLS (and let’s face it there should be a lot of you) are sure to appreciate Allyson Band’s ambiently mellow cover version which been remixed by the deft rhythmic hands of Keith Sweaty.

The original version carried an ample amount of concordant catharsis which spilt through the slightly vintage soundscape, yet, with Allyson Band’s inventive reimagining, the track has been resurrected with a new contemporary resonance. Despite the contemporary feel on the polished production, none of the blissful original ambience behind Hellhole Ratrace has been lost.

10 years have passed since the track’s original release, yet Hellhole Ratrace still remains the perfect track to put on your vibey playlists thanks to Allyson Band’s dexterous innovative approach.

LOELASH – Space Samba: Sonically Mesmeric Intergalactic Ambience

“Space Samba” is the incredibly endearing latest instrumental single from up and coming London-based experimental Electronica producer LOELASH who infused plenty of cathartically jazz-inspired ambience into the contemporary mix.

The title gives you an idea of what you’ll be in store for when you hit play, yet, there’s not a lot that could prepare you for the eccentric mix which plays with a myriad of different textures leaving every progression as unpredictable as the last.

Describing Space Samba as mesmerising almost seems like an understatement, given the transiently hypnotic nature of this single, it’s probably safer not to have on your driving playlists. But if you’re looking for soulfully restorative vibe-out electronica to slip into, Space Samba comes highly recommended.

Prepare for an Electro Punk Aural Awakening with MichaelG’s Single “Electrock”

I can imagine that up and coming Industrial Punk Electronica artist MichaelG took a lot of pleasure from creating a track which offers the aural equivalent to a cattle prod right from the prelude of their single “Electrock” leaving unexpecting listeners well and truly disconcerted.

I’ve never been made to feel that I’ve hit play on a track naively before, even with all my years in dank and sticky Industrial clubs, nothing has made my ears feel so gloriously defiled or carried the same arrestive potency of MichaelG’s recent release. With Electrock, MichaelG makes Combichrist sound as mellifluous as Miley Cyrus as sonic blasts of electronica thrash violently threw the mix in electrifying death throws.

So, if you’d like to feel the sensation of caustic electricity blasting against your eardrums, look no further than Electrock which is available to stream via SoundCloud now.

Fall down the electronical neo-classical rabbit hole with Deci’s latest piece “Geometrica”

https://youtu.be/IdBknv5r3-8

First, I’d like to thank Deci for making me feel like a musical philistine, secondly, I’d like to thank them for introducing me to an electronical music piece to which I’ll probably never hear the like of again. The piece was written for orchestra, yet that’s not to say those with little knowledge on the subject of orchestrating of classical music won’t find plenty of immersivity in the dark futuristic layers of sound. Geometrica combines sonic blasts of electronic effects with deftly placed orchestral instrumentals, both of them working in complete synergy in the instrumental mix to infuse ominous, disconcertment. The 3.5-hour piece takes you through a myriad of different soundscapes, yet the strikingly potent visceral piece will make you feel as though your heart is in your throat for the most part.

If you feel like falling down a three-hour aural rabbit hole of electronically mastered neo-classical, there is undoubtedly a no better option to hit play on Geometrica which you can do by heading over to YouTube now.

Thekayetan offers a progressive act of aural ingenuity with latest single “Addicted”

Up and coming Indie artist Thekayetan released their latest single “Addicted” on June 7th, 2019, and in the process of doing so, they shared with the airwaves an extremely progressive soundscape which won’t be forgotten long after the track has faded out.

While the prelude offers soft ambient downtempo pop, the momentum in the beat gradually picks up under Thekayetan’s softly versed vocals into a vibrant bass-heavy electronic mix which serves plenty of euphoria in the chorus. While Addicted may unravel as a medley of sound, the ingenuity of putting together such a seamless composition out of such contrasting sounds is a testament to Thekayetan’s talent as an artist. Addicted may not be everyone’s cup of tea, yet for those who appreciate well put together electronic experimentalism, the single comes highly recommended.

Qremade offers ambient resolution through a lush serving of bass with latest mix “Falling Embrace”

Despite the ambience infused into US-based up and coming Electronica artist Qremade’s debut mix “Falling Embrace” the single won’t fail to draw you into the intricately winding futuristic rhythms.

While there are plenty of light textures to be found in Falling Embrace, there’s also a fair enough serving of reverberant lush bass to give the track a palpable rhythmic command. Despite the polish on the production, there is still an Indie feel to Falling Embrace making it all too easy to sense the connection to the energy which Qremade poured into his debut single.

For an artist to be so fresh from inception yet creating tracks so melodically compelling is a sure sign of potential. Once you hear Falling Embrace you’ll be just as excited as I am to see how Qremade’s talent evolves.

Electronica artist Ham Plaza’s latest single “Sea” makes waves of ambient meditative catharsis

Up and coming Electronica artist Ham Plaza has recently released their latest single “Sea” providing an ambient mix which lucidly ebbs and flows through momentums allowing you to appreciate their experimental take on the digitally composed soundscape.

The dampened and almost haunted voicings, subtle acoustic sounds, and generous offering of reverb all come together to create a meditative dance track which doesn’t leave you with the inclination to tune out. Instead, each new switch-up in texture and tonality only serves to leave the listener just as transfixed with the single which is just one of the tracks found on Ham Plaza’s latest album “Al Nawee”. In a genre where distinction is all but impossible to find, Ham Plaza hasn’t failed to leave us hooked on their inventive yet still irrefutably accessible sound.

You can check out Ham Plaza’s latest single Sea which was released in April 2019 for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
