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.

The Zero Won’s New Track “Lights” Will Definitely Hypnotise You

The Zero Won are a band from Athens with a very distinctive sound, bridging a link between indie pop and disco through hypnotic sonorities and mesmerising vocals. With a strong electronic influence in their sound, these guys have something fresh to offer and upon first listening to their new track “Lights,” one of the primary things which is noticeable is the image evoking quality in the music. All the elements are blended so well within the texture that the sound created has the ability to take you on a visual journey just by listening to it. In fact, I personally can’t wait for a music video to accompany the song.

Apart from the mesmerising and hypnotic quality expressed in the music, “Lights” also features a variety of sounds ranging from delicate guitar countermelodies, big synth sounds, pointillistic percussions and a strong melodic line in the vocal part. This, in fact, results in a memorable expressive chorus which drives the music constantly forward. As the song reaches the end, momentum is built up towards a final climax which is literally an explosion of sound featuring all the interesting elements of instrumentation chosen and combining everything together through a great mix. Listening to this song is just a hypnotic experience from start to finish.
