Inzenze – Don’t Stop: The Summer EDM Drop Your Playlists Have Been Waiting For

After a string of successful single releases, breaking EDM artist and producer Inzenze released their debut album Into the Unknown. While each of the anthemic hits will leave you galvanised and rhythmically arrested, the perfect introduction to Inzenze’s high-octane sound is Don’t Stop.

Don’t Stop may carry a nostalgic element or two with the nuanced infusions of 90s Dance Pop, Disco and House, but Inzenze’s Trap-influenced production style sits way ahead of the curve.

There’s little room to wonder why Inzenze has been able to amass so much hype around their radio-ready sound. Get them on your radar, their infectious earworms will end up in your ears one way or another.

You can check out Inzenze’s exhilaratingly danceable mix Don’t Stop for yourselves along with the rest of the album via Spotify.

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.

Journeyman Positronic synths in the speakers with pop song ”When You Fall Down”

Positronic is the creation of Michael L. McDannold. Michael is from the Inland Empire in Southern California and has been making catchy synth-pop music since 1988. His first band was formed in 1988 with some friends from High School called Foundation. His next band was also with some friends from High School and was called Optic Rain. Shortly after Optic Rain broke up however, Michael moved to Michigan to marry the love of his life. After being in one more band, Michael decided to rather venture out on his own and came up with the name, Positronic because his music has a positive message and he loves electronic. Now back in his home of California, this is an artist who is ready to push his music to all corners of the world.

When You Fall Down” is a positive song with a strong message of help during these dark times. He is there for the love of his life and wants here to know that he is there for her always. This indie-pop song is a welcome addition to Positronic’s collection.

Southsea’s MATTE! brings ambiance to wild world with new single ‘’’Aurora’’

There is something quite comforting about this new track from ‘MATTE!’. I feel like it would be perfect late at night while just chilling with friends after a late night out. The perfect tonic from those busy crowds.

‘MATTE!’ is the alias of James Dinsdale, an electronic music producer from Southsea in England. He combines minimal electronic and lo-fi house vibes, his use of layered rhythmic elements and deep bass, shows off his signature style which is really soul-clenching. In a good way.

After being in bands when he was younger, I get the feeling that ‘MATTE!’ makes music for fun now and for that, I applaud him. The music scene is fickle and the whole point of music is to inspire and reach the real music fans. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind his music featured in a series, advert or movie of course, but this is someone who sees the bigger picture. Music is meant to be pure.

Melodrame – A Thousand Times: a melodic new-wave atmosphere

In the process of mastering and getting ready to go live on a number of new tracks, A Thousand Times is the latest effort by Melodrame, released on May 1st 2020.

Championing EDM through a heavy emphasis on multiple percussions and a handful of harmonic synths, A Thousand Times presents a melodic new-wave atmosphere with a rather original structure. Drawing bits from dancehall music, the track strikes as a perfect upbeat track whether you are in a club or just want enjoy some good chillout.

Playing with catchy melodies, Melodrame is not just a person but a project that the artist puts together to talk us through his life experiences. Through reviving memories, people and personal events, Melodrame moves through a personal catharsis leading towards rebuilding something positive – a promise for himself as well as his listeners.

Toronto’s The Silk Demise stalk in with seductively haunting single ‘’Professor’s Lake’’

Wrapped in a promise, under stars. I set our feet as we melt in the dark.

Founded in 2006, this is the ultimately dark ambient electronic, trip-hop, and chillout music for the soul- to be enjoyed with the lights ideally off. 

The Silk Demise’ are highly influenced by trip-hop legends Massive Attack and Portishead and they expertly conjure their own smooth brand of the genre, relying on samples, synths, and melodic drones. Their music is a bit scary but enjoyable and this is a quality outfit.

Let’s enjoy this top act from Toronto, Canada and hope for more quality release while they create that one massive hit to propel them to the front of the queue. 

Stream more from ‘The Silk Demise’ here on YouTube.

Outer Space visitors Burnt Umber Penumbra send electronic signals via music with ‘’Juno Morning’’

Very seldom does music give me chills like this. ‘Burnt Umber Penumbra’’ aka BUP is the name. Their self-titled album has recently dropped and I feel like the world is sleeping on this wave of magnetic energy forces, sent from a different galaxy.

Not much is known about ‘Burnt Umber Penumbra’. Perhaps they are hiding this away for now, building up their music collection before unleashing a wave of information and music to us mere mortals. I kind of like it when artists hide away, it makes my job harder but a challenge is always accepted. Music-wise anyway.

I feel like this band should focus on getting their music in a movie. From there, they will surely explode. Or wait to be discovered. No matter what they choose, this is really enjoyable music that puts you in a weirdly enthusiastic mood. Bring on more ‘Burnt Umber Penumbra’. A perfect name for a cat I’d say.

Get more Burnt Umber right here on their Spotify page.

Leon Seti’s effeminate, ethereal electro-pop hits its apex with ‘Silver Lining’

Italian electronic artist Leon Seti has released his new track ‘Silver Lining’ from his chart topping new album Cobalt

Pulsing, fabricated synthetic waves of wavering vocals and silky sonic textures are quick to overwhelm on Seti’s new single. ‘Silver Lining’ is unrelentingly full-on in driving forward with mournful, high-pitched quivers alongside stuttering high-hats and blubbering electro grooves. It’s eclectic electro pop that has an appreciation for the sensibility needed to match art with pure, unadulterated enjoyability. 

Leon Seti is an exciting artist with a strutting, confident vocal prowl – evident in his grandiose falsetto on ‘Silver Lining’. Check it out if you like Pet Shop Boys-influenced work that takes on a completely modern, reinvigorating artistic presence and aesthetic.
