Wlav – Shatter ft. Hardy Harajuku: Darkly Dystopian Indie Electronica

https://open.spotify.com/track/6Jxl3l5qUIlUV1JWGKBwki?si=hMPFeBMqQS-sc4i-UMHDUw

Taking inspiration from acclaimed Electronica artists such as Madison, Flume & Neon Hitch, up and coming Indie Electronica artist and producer Wlav has constructed their own darkly futuristic feat of downtempo House with “Shatter” ft. Hardy Harajuku.

The Carolina-based artist uses their home studio to create soundscapes with a postmodern feel. Instead of hooking you into a melody, with Shatter, you’re left to follow the dark, gritty progressions which throw plenty of cold and ominous tones your way.

Even though ominously orchestrated experimental Indie electronica is never going to be everyone’s cup of tea, Wlav still hasn’t failed to attract plenty of hype around their darkened highly conceptual tones.

G-Candy Releases Their Second Progressive Bass-Drenched EDM Mix “Welcome”

Up and coming artist G-Candy has recently dropped their latest instrumental EDM mix “Welcome” if you’re looking for sharp hooks and soul-shattering basslines, look no further.

Even though the instrumental mix contains some unholily filthy bass-drenched drops, there’s also plenty of smooth and transient breaks in between which make the drops even more caustically captivating. Each new progression in Welcome serves to bring you closer into the blistering, reverberating rhythm. It wouldn’t be a stretch to call Welcome an ingenious hit. There’s no denying that Welcome is an incredibly danceable mix when the rhythm is in full flow. It’s going to pretty exciting to see where G-Candy takes their deep bass-driven House sound next.

Thaiuche Fired Up ft. Deena O: The Ultimate Fusion of Soul & House

For his second single, up and coming London-based Soul House artist Thaiuche borrowed the demure lyrical prowess from R&B Soul singer Deena O and created an infectious track which offers the perfect balance of soulful euphoria and danceable rhythms with “Fired Up”.

Fired Up may be fairly typical of a House track as far as the beats go, yet the chemistry between Thaiuche and Deena O’s vocals adds a vibrantly colourful dynamic to this summer feel-good dance hit. With the slick, polished production quality paired with Thaiuche’s inclination to pour passion into his soundscapes, we’re fairly sure that this won’t be the last you hear of them.

Nishun Beats Releases Their Latest Tech House Mix “I CAN, YEH”

Sunderland, UK-based Tech House producer Nishun Beats has recently released their latest mix “I CAN, YEH”, treating EDM fans to 3 minutes of arrestive Deep House groove and reverberant bass.

You can almost taste the ecstasy which drips off this euphorically teasing mix which draws out the build-ups, leading you through a mesmerising maze of unpredictable electronic effect which will feed you plenty of visceral rhythm. Yet despite the experimentalism thrown into the mix, it’s more than easy to immerse yourself within I CAN, YEH.

As you can probably guess from the name of the track, Nishun Beats, is an artist and producer who doesn’t pander to pretention and frills, instead, he opts for big fills and blistering danceable basslines.

EMISM releases the most chillingly euphoric House track of the year with “GHOST”

Brooklyn-based House producer EMISM has recently released their latest mix “GHOST”, and you’ll have to excuse the pun while I tell you that this release was potentially one of the most haunting EDM tracks I’ve heard this year. I got chills, which is probably a first when it comes to listening to House in the comfort of my own home, I can only imagine the impact GHOST would have on a dancefloor.

EMISM has created an atmospherically arrestive single which simultaneously feeds you rhythmic euphoria at the same time as wavy aural phantasmal energy. Even with the inclusion on the vocals, GHOST possesses a cold alchemic tonality which makes you seek out the vibrancy in the notes between the harshly caustic beats and minor keys, it’s elusive, but it’s definitely there.

You can check out EMISM’s latest single GHOST which was released in August 2019 for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.

KLANGPLANET Chinatown: Melodically Groove-Deep House

Munich-based producer Frider Mollat started his solo project in 2017 under the name of KLANGPLANET with the intention of creating nostalgically inclined Deep House which offers plenty of funk, groove and soul. If the mix “Chinatown” from the album “Good” is anything to go by, he’s certainly succeeded.

We may have been dancing to drum rhythms since the dawn of time, yet KLANGPLANET still finds a fresh and exotic way for those rhythms to exude a viscerally strong hypnotic command. The multi-layered mix plays with different acoustic and organic textures to offer a soundscape which is masterfully intricate. Each unpredictable note in Chinatown leaves you deeper immersed in the producer’s soulful approach to Indie Deep house. We didn’t need the artist’s bio to tell us he’s been part of the fabric of the music industry for quite some time, it is more than perceptible with how stylistically the polished mix unfolded.

The dynamic beats create the perfect platform for Junior Paes’ naturally strong vocals to rest neatly above and lead you through the aural ecstasy of the single.

Ltronnika – Escapade: Electronica with a Serving of Sticky Sweet 90s House Nostalgia

“Escapade” is just one of the stunning singles found on up and coming Electronica producer Ltronnika’s debut self-titled 2019 album. While each of the instrumental tracks stands as a testament to the diversity of the artist, the intro track “Escapade” will throw you headfirst into some sticky sweet 90s Dance Nostalgia as you listen to the vibrancy and lack of pretension within the soundscape.

While it may seem like many EDM producers are in competition with each other to create the fanciest soundscapes, Escapade progresses as a persistently euphorically immersive soundscape which never lets the momentum falter, no clever effects, just vibrant feel-good rhythms.

Gezvolt – You Can Dance: Rhythmically Commanding Progressive Tech House

If you asked yourself how progressive Tech House could be, you’d probably find that the answer lies in Gezvolt’s latest mix “You Can Dance”. Instead of just serving 3 minutes of solid bass-heavy beats, You Can Dance pulls you further into the mix by teasing the excitement of the next progression with the clever use of spatial effect. While that’s not rare to hear, it’s rare to hear it work so effectively. The sense of urgency for the momentum to build once more is nothing short of genius.

Rather than giving you a nice and gentle fade out, the track simply ceases to exist, the effect can only be compared to getting whiplash when you’re immersed in motion – then it comes to a sudden halt. You can take that as a testament to the aural command which the Canadian-based producer creates with his mixes.

Lu Roc Melodic – The Funk Way Down: Potently Euphoric House

With Lu Roc Melodic’s single “The Funk Way Down” he took all of the sterility which is commonly found in House music, and replaced it with layers of Funk, Groove, Soul, and elements of Rock to create a well-rounded beat that wouldn’t fail to get an Acid House dancefloor warmed up.

Even though the Chicago-based artist is fresh from his inception, the soundscapes he cooks up wouldn’t allow you to believe it. The clever use of vocal samples allows the electronic beat to lead the way throughout the potently euphoric mix which incorporates bendy acoustic basslines along with some raw guitar arrangements which switch up from a Jangle Pop style progression to angular riffs.

You can check out Lu Roc Melodic’s single The Funk Way Down which is just one of the singles to feature on his second album ‘Dos’ for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
