Here’s a new cut from Ryan Hemsworth, one of 2012’s most promising new producers. He’s already gearing up for a massive 2013, and dropped ‘Baseworld’ as a New Years gift. Stream and download below. Much appreciated Ryan!
British electronic producer Palmistry dropped three new tracks on his Soundcloud recently; ‘Shrimps Last Dance’, ‘Vapor’ and ‘Way Beyond’. I’ve chosen to post ‘Way Beyond’ as I think it’s the pick of the three. Palmistry mixes warped vocals with synths and an atmospheric, ambient beat.
“In My World” is the debut album by Irish solo artist The Night Ablaze. It came out on December 3rd and is available now on iTunes, follow the link and grab a copy. I’ve given the album quite a few plays since its release, and the fact this is first material ever to surface from The Night Ablaze has truly blown me away. The albums opener, “We Go In Search”, is my current pick of the bunch so I decided to post it. There’s a rather touching sentiment to be found on this track. The lyrics become very uplifting when it shifts into gear on the 1:04 minute mark and I find it really springs to life. The combination of drums, guitar and in particular the piano will stick with you. This is an incredibly positive start from a really, really good debut and it’s worth checking out.
Singapore-based duo Octover have really cool new track out called ‘Satisfy’. The group, which consists of Van Detta and Jason Tan, have a really smooth style of music that mixes electronica and pop together, similar to How To Destroy Angels and NIN’s later stuff. ‘Satisfy’ is a really smooth slice of dark, seductive electronica that has me really interested to hear more from this band. Check it out.
Kate Boy, an up and coming electronic-pop outfit from Sweden, have a quality new track out called ‘Northern Lights’, with a rather stark video to accompany it. The similarities to The Knife are striking and will hit you instantly. ‘Northern Lights’ is perhaps a little bit more of a ‘pop’ approach than of The Knifes music, but’s got a spike to it too. Prepare yourself for the barrage of hype that’s certain to follow this track.
School Of Seven Bells have just dropped a new tune entitled ‘Secret Days’ which is set to appear on their upcoming EP, ‘Put Your Sad Down’, due November 13. ‘Secret Days’ has just about everything you’d want from a School Of Seven Bells release. A chugging drum beat, haunting harmonies and Alejandra Deheza’s gorgeous breathy delivery, what more could you want from the New York duo. Ben Curtis’ production, as always, is polished and slick. Check it out below.
‘Sea’ is the exceptional debut track from Cologne-based musician, Roosevelt, a new artist who has been garnering a serious amount of hype lately. His music, which is brilliant by the way, mixes elements of Chill Wave, Disco and Pop so it’s as broad as it is enjoyable really. He’s been backed heavily by Joe Goddard of Hot Chip, and if Electronic Pop is your thing then you’ll definitely dig this. I’ve had it on repeat all evening and will be blaring it as loud as possible when I eventually get to a Halloween party!
John Talabot and Pional have once again mustered up an absolutely ridiculously smooth dance cut, called ‘Brave.’ Earlier in the year John Talabot dropped his debut album ƒIN, and it’s still doing the rounds on my stereo. The duo worked together on that album as well and together they released one of the best dance tracks of the year, ‘Destiny.’ ‘Brave’ is another excellent cut by the on-form duo and it’s also available to download for free below!
This new single from L.A based outfit The New Division has completely blown me away. It’s called ‘Night Escape’ and it features absolutely gorgeous vocals from Sarah P of Keep Shelly In Athens. The vocals along with the songs lush instrumentals and production is simply stunning. A totally unexpected surprise as I just stumbled upon this single this morning. It’s the first piece of new material I’ve heard by The New Division since 2011’s ‘The Rookie’. Make sure you check this one out, along the single Starfield for further listening.
Finding information on No Ceremony/// has been proving difficult. From what I’ve gathered they’re from Manchester, from listening to some of their music they play dark, intense and emotionally driven electronic music in which they are quite good at. FEELSOLOW is their latest track. Give it a listen below and I’ll keep you posted on updates.
