Neo-Classic Ambience

Benjamin Witt has made his neo-classic debut with their album ‘Coming Out of It’

North Carolina-based artist, composer and producer, Benjamin Witt has made their debut with their ambient neo-classic album ‘Coming Out of It’. Any fans of Nils Frahm’s tender melodic touch will want to spend time with this remarkably evocative album which could serve as the OST to Hollywood’s next blockbuster.

The best exhibition of Benjamin Witt’s astuteness when it comes to capturing emotion on piano keys is ‘Running Through It’, a soundscape that quiescently captures a break free from stagnation with tentative steps that guide you towards living instead of existing at the mercy of the universe.

Running Through It is now available to stream via Spotify.

Neo-Classic Roots Entwine with Modernistic Tones in The Ideal Setback’s Latest Release “Ambedo”

Ambedo is just one of the celestially graceful compositions which feature on The Ideal Setback’s latest album Nodus Tollens which is due for release on September 25th. It’s safe to say that ambience has never been quite so evocative.

As neo-classic roots entwine with modernistic transcendental tones under the deft composition of Todd Chappell, you’ll be able to feel every fluctuation in momentum and passion. The intricately light soundscape was inspired by and titled after the melancholic trances we enter when vivid sensory details capture us and allow us to drift into a dimension besides the anxiety-riddled hellscape we call 2020. For your own sanity, hit play.

You can check out Ambedo for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
