Ezhak –  Cold Sky
Funky vaporwave. Essential genre entry, while avoiding most (not all) clichés.
Acrilic Colors –  Thing From Another World
Classic ambient IDM from Kahvi. If you like frosty but soft electronica, look no further.
2Invention –  In Aeternum
Straightforward trance. No-frills, no female vocals, just beat, bass, synth and simple melodies.
Various Artists –  Intelligent Toys: We Make Music
Essential experimental IDM. 3 discs, 51 tracks of IDM à la Sutemos are an earful to chew on. Bring popcorn!
Coax –  Aeons
Frosty ambient IDM with class. Very versatile EP with fully ambient to almost danceable tracks. A real classic, published at Kahvi.
Tunguska Electronic Music Society –  Tunguska Chillout Grooves, Volume 7
Excellent ambient compilation. Many artists collaborate in this long-standing series of relaxing electronica albums.
GRENADE SURROUND Experience –  Свободнее Птиц
Post-rock jazz vibes. Musical equivalent of a good, strong red wine. Becomes better the more you taste it.
Dream Generator –  Glazed
Old-school techno meets IDM. This gem from long-standing (active since 2001 and running) netlabel Kahvi offers an interesting blend of 90’s techno sounds and 00’s more refined approach to Electro. While the beats and bass synth lines sound almost retro to my 2017 ears, melody and harmonies sound fresher.
Mikael Fyrek –  I Step Into the Advent
Calm and clean, cinematic IDM. What would relaxing lounge music sound in the Tron universe? Pretty much like this. All-electronica sounds, straight from digital synthesizers, soothe your ears. Four tracks in total span about 30 minutes. Two picked tracks and the download link follow below.
Workbench –  Zoo
This ambient release from Kahvi contains over 80 minutes of relaxing background music. No spiritual, new age enlightenment tunes with water effects. But only clear and calm electronic music. I like this kind of music for programming, reading or just relaxing. Like usual, I present two tracks to pull you in, too!
Kenny Beltrey –  Yako Emulator
Here is one more of the musical treasures from the depths of the Kahvi netlabel. Though its recent release date this album sounds more like a disco dance release from the early 90’s. I like it much because of its “kicking” beats. The production is of high quality and sounds fresh. Some vocal samples are […]
General Fuzz –  Red Balloon
Much of the free electronic music available these days is quite minimalistic, experimental or both. This album is – surprise – different. Although being produced entirely electronic, it is enjoyable also by the non-hardcore electronic listener. It features groovy rhythms, catchy melodies and harmonic, erm… harmonies.
Coax –  The Ice Garden
Icy cinematic orchestral soundtrack. Calm instrumentals with electronic ambient influence. A Kahvi classic (pun intended).
