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.

Themorethanevers – Electroland: A Short & Sweet Hit of Progressively Cinematic Electronica

Electroland is the short and sweet hit from up and coming Electronica artist Themorethannevers. It may be under two minutes long, but that is exactly the amount of time to realise the striking potential that themorethanevers exhibits in this mix of experimental electronica.

Starting off with ambient synth lines, Electroland leaves you with little chance to prepare for the sharp switch up which leaves you in a futuristic mix of relentlessly vibrant beats only to fade back down into bassy break beats with classical keys.

Yet, no matter which genres Themorethanevers dabbles with in his prodigal mix each progression runs through with a cinematic ambience, you’ll find that to be a common feature with Themorethanevers signature style which feeds into every soundscape under their deft command.

You can check out Electroland along with the artist’s most recent 2019 hit “It’s Okay” for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.

S.O.S – Firebrick: Emotively Arrestive Electronica

While many Electronica artists tend to leave the sentiment behind their lyrics fairly light, up and coming artist S.O.S went in the complete opposite direction and created a compelling narrative with her single “Firebrick”.

The atmospheric yet feisty instrumentals slowly gain momentum as you’re deeply immersed in the single which poignantly celebrates the strength of those who seem to constantly find themselves in toxic situations.

The metaphors which S.O.S created for Firebrick add plenty of weight to the single, add her vocal talent to the equation and it’s easy to feel crushed by the emotive hit. When you are able to draw your attention away from the vocals, you will appreciate the contemporary feel to the beat which keeps the perfect balance between moody and uplifting.

Recycled Recitals – Some Chill Music: Smoothly Stylised Electronica

Recycled Recitals pretty much did my job for me with the title of his latest single “Some Chill Music”. But what the title failed to encapsulate was the level of arrestive hype which he managed to infuse in his cathartic beats which carry plenty of visceral energy.

Don’t expect your average electronic arrangement from the Miami-based artist, within the soundscape to Some Chill Music are infectiously feel-good Folk arrangements which brush up against the constant momentum which is laid out through the synths and drum pads. Some Chill Music stands as a testament to the independent artist and producer’s ability to create a mix which offers a cathartic level of immersivity.

If you’re looking for some potently stylised euphoria in the form of downtempo electronica, you can stream and download Some Chill Music by heading over to Bandcamp now.
