I have yet to be disappointed by a Kimekai track. The twenty-one year-old’s ability to create emotive electronic music is quite something. Add ‘Sunland‘ to his steadily growing array of gems. The track centres and evolves on the back of some slick percussive sounds and intimate vocals. The track is taken from Hush Hush Records’ superb Presents Vol.1 compilation. Kimekai‘s debut release Coral Dreams is set to drop June 23rd on Hush Hush Records.

Holly .K is a name to definitely keep on your radar. The UK-based artist has an impressive collection of tracks, which she modestly refers to as “rough demos”. A self-described maker of organic, homegrown noise, Holly’s work is both rich and inviting. ‘High Wear‘ is a particular highlight with its slick, ethereal vibe. Be sure and check out Holly’s soundcloud for more.

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of EDARCY, the work of Melbourne’s Michael Nolan. Earlier this week, we were treated to both intro tracks from his forthcoming debut EP which just so happens to be a dual release. The White EP and Black EP are set to drop soon. Both intro tracks are a perfect first taste of what we can expect from the dual release. Check out ‘Intro (White)‘ below, and keep a lookout for the EPs.

As Above, So Below‘ is the third compilation to be released here on BIS. The sixteen-track compilation is a true representation of the minimal, emotive vibe that’s become the foundation of this blog over the last few years. I was very fortunate that the cast I assembled as well as the track submissions I received fit the overall aesthetic of the compilation beautifully. Without further ado, a big thanks to the ‘As Above, So Below‘ cast: Kimekai, After Eating, Pullahs, Peadar Kearney, JUOMO, Kohi, Hounded, J Milto, Allatus, Hazy Mountains, Elderflower, TMPST, Quixotism, Dreems, Silica Cove, Hotwax. A big thank you to Dreems and Alexis Newton for the artwork. Grab those headphones and get lost in the minimal sounds of ‘As Above, So Below‘.
