Thom Gillies, aka Blue Material (former member of TOPS and co-founder of Vesuvio Solo), returns with a brand new groove for the ages, 'Statue in the Dark'. True to its influences and style, he delivers yet another groovy romantic song. Soft funky surges and disco whispers, Blue Material distils a swing that subtly electrifies the body. This synthetic peregrination haunted by a warm and sensual voice is bitten with emotion. With this pop with funk and disco bursts, this talented artist weaves an irresistible dancing canvas.
A Thousand Clouds is the follow-up EP to Emancipator and 9 Theory's highly-acclaimed 2019 collaboration, Cheeba Gold. After the success of their first EP, and how fun and organic the making of it was, the two west-coast electronic music producers set out to see if they could recreate that magic once again with 4 new songs. The two spent one week together at Emancipator's studio in the Oregon woods and went from a completely blankslate to this finished new EP in just 6 days. To keep in the spirit of Cheeba Gold this new EP, A Thousand Clouds, was also intended to be only 4 songs, be made quickly without overthinking it too much, and the track order of the songs is again the same order in which they were made. The end result is another unique, magical blend of electronic, downtempo, indie, and hip-hop that lives somewhere really special outside of what either artist would ever make on their own.
Tokyo founded, Los Angeles based outfit Honeywhip have been releasing track after stunning track and this new one is no execption. “Vacation” is a little ditty about very badly wanting to go on vacation. The fantasy of escape is strong right now and we dream about it every night, and daydream during the day.. but we're cooped up at home writing a song about it instead, and somehow that makes it all feel a little better.
From when he got his first multitrack recorder as a teenager, Jesper Ryom has been conveying moods through all kinds of genres of music. Over time, this has led the Berlin-based Dane to create a swirl of evocative, yet danceable atmospheres, drawing inspiration from hip hop and weaving in samples from an eclectic music collection. His sound is as emotive and climactic as the post rock that defined much of his musical upbringing, and while his music has been played for the dance floors around the world, his own private persona will rarely be found in clubs. It was 2010 that marked the beginning of a steadily growing catalogue of intricately assembled house tracks, conveying both buoyant dreams and melancholic moods. A homely perfectionist at heart, Jesper has made the rare choice of saying no to most gigs to focus instead on tracking down whichever sample or coincidental noise that can express the current state he is in – for the benefit of himself and his dedicated following.
Fhin reveals with fallin fallin the 4th single from his album to be released on October 30th.
He offers here an electronic ballad on which piano and synthesizers are mixed together, featuring the Canadian singer sahara. The title is inspired by an exploration of Fhin's lucid dream on a winter night in 2019 when the producer "fell endlessly into terrifying obscurity".
The track features the producer's cherished influences and a gentle, dreamlike atmosphere.
