Soothing ambient goodness. Almost acoustic bubble-bath
This ambient masterpiece has been released by still active netlabel Dewtone back in 2005, but has dropped out of their official back catalogue since then.
Fortunately, archive.org did, well, archive this gem for us. 2 of the 9 relaxing tracks make it into my review. But it is the full release you should be treating yourself with. As another reviewer there put it:
In all, an absolutely beautiful work to be placed along with your finest ambient recordings.
Exceptional pop compilation. The fabulous series does it yet again…
Again it’s time to honour one of the more than 50 episodes of the netBloc series.
Like usual, two tracks are far to few to cover all the gems in this release. Like usual for a blocSonic release, it covers a broad range of popular music genres, ranging from alternative rock, to easy listening to instrumental hip hop.
Intense drone music. Slowly pulsating synth chords; delivering loads of spacey space sound.
Drone music is a dish best served at low to medium volume in a dimmed room. Headphones are a plus, but not necessary. Relaxing or comforting activities become twice as effective. I generally can recommend Stellardrone’s other works if you are a friend of this genre. Continue reading “Stellardrone –  Sublime”
Tightly produced ambient house. Individually lovely samples achieve greatness in arrangement.
NuLogic is a fine (no so) little netlabel, at home in the electronic branches of the genre tree. French canadian musician Geolm knows how to make a good first impression. Marvellously produced sound samples, some even with an analogue touch to them, blend nicely to stern beats. Continue reading “Geolm –  One Hundred Sights EP”
Minimal, vowel-free netlabel MNMN Records pumps out a steady stream of diverse, slighly experimental music. This item with catalogue number 483 surfs on the edge between synth wave and glitchy ambient. 9 tracks, each longer than six minutes, make for a pretty spaced up ambience. Continue reading “Erugo Purakushi –  SPARK”
Friendly ambient electronica. If Minecraft would have another soundtrack, this EP could set the style.
Ambient music is hard to discover for me: while I am in the mood for exploration, I tend to favour louder and more immediately “gratifying” productions. This EP released at a Portuguese netlabel focused on Japanese music – yes, apparently that’s a thing – MiMi Records. Here, calm bleeps create an ambience very conducive to relaxing activities.
