August Planet – Metropolis; This is a sound project which erupts a sci-fi chills

Okay, to start with this is no ordinary work. Believe me, this is track right here is totally different from what you thought it could be in every sense of it. The album “Metropolis” is a music project from August planet. It’s more of an instrumental sound music project with different beat and concepts.

Metropolis as a sound music project is a multi-dimensional work that cuts across different music genre in a subtle way.

This type of work can be likened to Adam Young’s “Ayoungscores” music project which is skewed towards creation of magnificent soundtracks and different celestial collection of smooth soothing sound of music beats. Just in same way August’s “Metropolis” is a sound project which tends to interprets with a lot of nature’s synchronic linguistics.

To understand more what this type of work is, just think of an original music written to accompany motion picture, just especially for Sci-Fi movies. The musical genre that was covered in this album transcend from Downtempo to Instrumental Hip-Hop, and then down to a little bit of infusion of Electronica.

This type of music work isn’t for everybody because the revelation of a person’s love of music is different for everyone.

This album draws inspiration from important moments in history and tends to interpret them through musical sounds only.

DareRick Instrumentals: 12 Whole Minutes of Transient Melodic Bliss

https://youtu.be/iGrgQPrr3Q0

DareRick Instrumentals has just dropped a sensational 12 minute Trap & Techno mix for fans of Urban Electro to get behind. Whilst the mix is a little slow to start, once you get a quarter of the way into the track, you wish the mix would never end.

The sounds grow more and more palpable as the beat progresses and swirls and fades, playing chaos with your mind through the transient drops and the succinct melodies that are created in this down beat minimalistic track. It’s the perfect beat to zone into and out from, its surrealist vibe almost has an orchestral edge to the composition until it thrashes back and forth between it’s rhythmic snares. The mixtape is one of the most unpredictable tracks I’ve listened to in a long time, although it has to be said; this mix wouldn’t be out of place on a Resident Evil soundtrack with it’s occasional hints of instrumental doom being thrown into the mix.

Oliver Cheung – Remembrance: Pacifying Progressive Rock

Oliver Cheung is a solo artist from Hong Kong who has assembled his skills to produce his latest ensemble titled Remembrance in which he created the perfect track to accompany the worn-out meditation tracks on your chill out playlists.

The deftly talented guitar player has mastered a melodic track with minimalist entrapments that lead you into a transgressive cacophony of sound through the duration of the 8-minute track which turns into an overpowering discord of annalistic rock that even the most pretentious metal fan couldn’t turn their nose up at. Throughout his standout track Remembrance, he demonstrates that his ability to manipulate the strings is a straight up match with Prog Rock giants such as Dream Theatre, Tangerine Dream and Porcupine Tree.

This instrumental track couldn’t be long enough. Lucky for me, it comes off the Remembrance EP which has just been released. Throughout the EP Cheung demonstrates his versatility over arrangements, with each moment of his EP more captivatingly sonorous than the last.

The Remembrance EP is available for you to check out and download via Bandcamp right now!

BINU – Ziggurat: Mozart Couldn’t Write A Better Symphony

The fresh new sound comes from three ridiculously talented instrumental musicians from Austin, Texas. These unsigned artists bring together a delectable mix of instrumental soul & jazz through their arrangement of keyboards, bass and drums. They don’t care to be placed within the confines of a genre, instead they expand their music across every orifice of music until they found their blissful sound which lingers most prominently around the Contemporary Jazz arena. They created more than just lounge music, with a sound that you can forget you’re listening to, BINU offers a touch of dramatism within the sound to make it compelling as any orchestral cacophony.

With Ziggurat, between the three artists, they constructed a mind-blowing piece of music that shines a light in the disparity of contemporary music with one of the most symphonic sounds I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. As the music strips away toward the end of the duration of the track, you’re left revelling on an empyreal high, and the silence that concludes the track is deafening.

Check out their latest tracks on the Bandcamp link below, now available for both streaming and download:

Kind Releases Instrumental Track “Like Love 4”

“Kind” is a seamless, elegant and understated word with only 4 letters, just like love. The concept of this single is absolutely outstanding. I love the textural, pumping atmospheres with some trance-inspired pad tones clashing with powerful 808-style beats.

This is an instrumental electronic hip-hop vibe track that takes the listeners on a very unexpected musical journey. Initially, the song focuses on some lush textures with a new wave flavor, but later, it explores a driven beat inspired by techno and trance music, two of the most deep and textural under currents of EDM. On the other hand, the track also has a stunning interlude, where the song gets considerably quieter, allowing the track to breathe and gain a deeper arrangement.

I love the multi-dimensional sound of this production, and the many instruments in the song really fit well together – from the electronic drum samples to the stunning guitar tones and vocal loops.
