tau0n – Time is Silence EP: Transcendentally Progressive Electronica at Its Finest

While many electronica artists promise a transcendental experience with their soundscapes, very few do it with the same levels of magnetic concordance as can be heard on tau0ns instantly arrestive latest 3-track EP “Time is Silence”.

Instead of creating your average Electronica soundscapes, tau0n create aural explorations of sound which lead you through a variety of transmutations; each one being a journey to the peak of the tempo and right back down again. Whilst there are certainly elements of minimalism in the sound is also a fair enough serving of infectious rhythm when the tempo dares to amplify.

There’s also a lot to be said for what the vocals bring to the tracks on Time is Silence – in the title track especially. With “Bottom of the Hole” you’re treated to a slightly harsher but still just as atmospheric sound filled with some fairly filthy techno beats. And Winter Flesh may be the most mellifluously compelling offering of electronica I’ve heard this year, the elements of Shoegaze, Funk, and Pop did not go unappreciated.

From this release, it’s all too evident that tau0n is an artist who is all about the stylistic ingenuity and we can’t wait to see what comes next for the up and coming artist.

VYNES – Nobody Knows: Effervescently Atmospheric Ambient Electronica

With Electronica, it’s not all too often that you’re treated to a moody atmospheric mix which is also simultaneously effervescent and uplifting.

But that’s exactly what you will have in store hitting play on VYNES’ latest upcoming release “Nobody Knows” which happens to be the perfect introduction to the up and coming artist’s celestially compelling style.

Even though the lyrics don’t drive the track, the striking harmonics still offer a high amount of resonance as they sit in perfect synergy with the downtempo multi-layered beats which have been polished to absolute perfection. There’s also plenty of progression contained within the single which ensures that each new transgression of sound treats you to sticky-sweet concordance.

You can check out VYNES latest single Nobody Knows for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud when the single drops, but in the meantime, you can check out the Melbourne-based artists earlier drops.

Wesley Curtis Teams up with ELLYÄNA for His Latest Single “Won’t Stop”

Philadelphia-based Electronica artist Wesley Curtis is certainly no stranger when it comes to composing intricately magnetic downtempo soundscapes and using them as the perfect platform to support impressive vocal talent. But with his latest release the up and coming artist has created his most arrestive single yet with a little help from female vocalist ELLYÄNA who layers the melodically stylised single “Won’t Stop” with her indulgently moody vocals.

“Won’t Stop” was just one of the stunningly immersive singles to feature on Wesley Curtis’ EP “3am” which was released on March 29th, 2019. If you don’t have a soundtrack to your insomnia, Won’t Stop comes highly recommended. The lyrical depth combined with the sticky-sweet melodies offer a hit of soothing catharsis which you certainly won’t get from many other up and coming artists.

Irish Techno artist Roberto Moffitt Creates His Most Compelling Single Yet with “Brookvale”

“Brookvale” is the first 2019 single to be released by up and coming Dublin-based Electronica artist Roberto Moffitt. With the extended duration of the progressive single, Roberto Moffitt found plenty of space for visceral melodies which resounded against the depth and the bass of the Techno beats.

The level of atmospherics which were conjured in Brookvale were only matched by the euphoric energy which adds an irresistibly arrestive tonality to the instrumental mix which perceptibly had no need for lyrics or vocals to add a very human element to this otherwise digitally orchestrated track. It is only when the final drop takes you with it you can fully appreciate the potent capacity of Brookvale.

Band of Insurgents Drops Their Latest Mix of Mellifluous Electronica with “Posaga”

“Posaga” is the latest mix from up and coming electronica artist Band of Insurgents who is quickly becoming renown for his tangible ability to create instrumental mixes which are as jarring as they are ambient. The subtle switch-ups in the sound allow you to realise just how deep the electronic mix is resonating – especially as you come to the end of the single where spatial effect comes in to play and the result is nothing short of haunting.

There’s plenty of evoking energy to be found in the soundscape which Band of Insurgents cooked up with his latest single which proves just how much he has progressed as an artist. Posaga was also released alongside another single “Racing Thoughts” which incorporated vocals from female vocal artist Nellie. Yet with the alchemy of instrumental mixes there is little use for vocals when the sound progressions are so stirring.

MSJB Treats Us to a Serving of Viscerally Captivating Electronica with “Who You’ve Become”

If your playlists are short of celestially magnetic electronica, MSJB’s single “Who You’ve Become – Instrumental” is the perfect track to add some wavy concordance to your playlists.

Who You’ve Become is just one of the up and coming artist’s latest album “Unlabelled”. Each of the singles breaks away from the sterile mould of electronica and hits you with visceral, undiluted energy which has little need for lyrics to make the energy behind the tracks resonate.

While MSJB’s work could never be described as ambient for the imposing and riling nature of the bass, there’s still a mellifluous polish over each of the tracks which makes them the perfect soundscapes to slip into if you’re looking for something energetic instead of brash.

You can check out Who You’ve Become along with the rest of the tracks from the album for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.

The Safety Word – United: Effervescently Alchemic Downtempo Electronica

Melbourne-based electronica act The Safety Word have recently released their most mesmerising single yet with “United”. Usually, when we stumble across an atmospheric soundscape it unfolds with some degree of ominous tonality. Yet, with United, the single is so piercingly sweet it creates its own brand of effervescent alchemy.

Such a sound could only have ever been born out of the Post Rock, New Romantic genre, but the Safety Word use all of the haunting harmonics as the perfect ingredient in their cocktail of downtempo synth and R&B. But this is by no means your average offering of experimental genre-mashing. United is bordering on celestial thanks to the mellifluous layers of the sound which perfectly gels the vocal and instrumental melodies.

Ltronnika Releases Their Latest Serving of Feel-Good Euphoria with “Good Times”

Any artist who can make an electronica soundscape come alive with undiluted good vibes through digital sequencing immediately has a solid testament of their talent.  And that’s exactly what Ltronnika created with their latest track simply titled “Good Times”; the instrumental mix is quite literally what it says on the tin.

The elements of 80s synth feed into a more contemporary arrangement which runs through with a light and effervescently melodic feel. Yet, as contemporary as the track is, it still carries potent waves of accessibility allowing you to slip into the progressions easily. Even in the absence of vocals, this track is one of the most emotively compelling we’ve heard in a long time.

To get a hit of the fuzzy feel-good feels you can check out Ltronnika’s latest mix Good Times for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.

Gregory Toth – Hyperjump Love Song: Progressively Euphoric Electronica

If I were to tell you that the title “Hyperjump Love Song” pretty much tells you all you need to know about this track, you’d get a pretty good impression of how the electro mix sounds. But it wouldn’t give you much of an impression of just how refreshing the electronica mix is.

Hyperjump Love Song kicks off with cinematic appeal in the prelude before seamlessly making the transition into a mix of minimalist electro with elements of Jazz in a track which picks up plenty of momentum to lead you into more of a prog house mix.

While there’s no denying that there is some serious style and ingenuity within the electronic instrumental arrangement of the track, the vocals don’t quite do the track justice which may just be a matter of where they sit in the production. Yet, if you’re looking for a feel-good hit, you can’t go far wrong with this promising single from Gregory Toth.

Nick Sawczyn Releases His debut of Cinematically Arrestive Ambient Electronica

Up and coming artist Nick Sawczyn has made his debut with the cinematically arrestive self-titled album and in the process treated us to a strikingly mellifluous work of ambient electronica.

While many artists try and create soundscapes on the same level of transcendence, it’s clear that Nick Sawczyn has a deft command of sound through his ability to weave tension and the occasional ominous note to ensure that you are truly captivated by each progression of sound.

With the tracks from his debut release he constructed soundscapes which would be just as at home on a film score with the orchestral swells sitting so tightly with the ambient electronic arrangement. Each of the seven tracks flow to their own unique tempos, but there are also a fair amount of recurring tonalities throughout them. Some people may be under the impression that albums are becoming redundant, listening to Nick Sawczyn’s album would be all the reassurance they need that they are wrong.
