Waterplea –  Dream Catcher
Relaxing long-form electronica trip. A 40 minute journey between music and soundscapes.
Gridline –  Videogame
Pure synths (no samples) and drums lead to an instrumental or melodic techno album. Made not for dancing, but for attentive walking.
Aevio –  Bioluminescence
Soothing ambient glitch hop. Skilfully crafted sound textures that excite your ears and calm your mind.
Everlasting Dream –  Echoes From the Future
Cinematic downtempo electronica. Could be a sci-fi soundtrack, just lacks a movie.
Erugo Purakushi –  SPARK
Trippy synthwave techno ambience. Slightly experimental, yet thoroughly enjoyable as upbeat background music.
Revolution Void –  Increase the Dosage
Groovy relaxed vibes. Electronically produced jam sessions.
MEDL4 –  Anima Mundi
Bassy classy instrumental hip hop. Vocal samples introduce each song, but then instrumental samples reign.
Triplexity –  Live in Triplex City
Non-cheesy world lounge. A striking balance between combining multiple music and ethnic styles, and producing a coherent musical release.
Tony Mahoney –  Dark Blue
Faux antique trip hop. Twenty songs, over one hour of vinyl samples, including dust specks, enhancing the faux antique sound, replaying against the backdrop of subtle modern beats. Great instrumental hip hop with trip hop influences. The tracks are loopy on the surface, but the repetitions slowly evolve time, new samples fading in or out […]
Candlegravity –  Junpei
Trippy glitch electronica. This album leans more towards the experimental side. It might need some time to be heard in total. But it might yield some exceptional moments in return. I better let the artist explain: All of the other songs are from personal experiences both good and bad and the making of this album […]
Auditive Escape –  Profound
Convincing downtempo trip hop. Ok, “convincing” might sound a bit too corporate for this lush piece of an album, flirting with ambient genre elements. French artist Jean Patier really knows how to turn the knobs to create deceptively simple chill out tracks. Read on for my two (from 10) favourite tracks and the release link.
Aleksi Virta –  ..Meets Torsti At The Space Lounge
Relaxed vibe entering your ears! This ultra-cool release at Monotonik — which sadly is on hiatus at the moment — is really great background music with attitude. It features funky beats and chords, sometimes accompanied by fitting recordings of miscellaneous voices. As usual, I present 3 of my favourite tracks which are described in detail […]
