There’s not a whole lot of information available on the London-based project Skye Chai. What we do know is that he/she has a penchant for crafting impressive electronic tracks. To mark the reaching of 100 soundcloud followers, Skye Chai has released a highly impressive new track. ‘Without.Her‘ is ripe with soulful vocal samples and rolling synth work. The track is free to download here.
I was pointed in the direction of Pullahs earlier today by the good folks of Bad Panda Records. Pullahs is a solo electronic project from Turkey. He has just released a superb three-track electronic treat titled Everything Was Swell. Perhaps the standout, ‘Celestial‘, takes the listener on a journey laced in warm bass sounds and emotive electronica. From the soft side-chaining effect to the percussive clicks and those gorgeous vocal samples, this track’s got it all. Everything Was Swell is available here.
It would appear that I’m very late to the After Eating party. From Brooklyn, After Eating has been crafting truly stunning electronic tracks for some time now. ‘Ur Stroke‘ is the project’s latest offering and one can’t help but get lost in the track’s feel-good vibe. The track is laden with glorious vocal samples and lo-fi synth sounds that evoke a sense of romantic nostalgia. ‘Ur Stroke‘ is free to download here.
Last year I was lucky enough to stumble upon the sounds of Brighton-based musician, Flavia Aliverti who works under the moniker F.L.A. Just last night I learned of another one of Flavia’s musical endeavours, Foreign Skin, and I was in awe of the high calibre music that greeted me. A treasure chest of electronic treats awaits you on her soundcloud page. ‘Sai Kung‘ is a particular highlight and is testament to the immense talent of this twenty-two year-old. Grab a free download via bandcamp. Foreign Skin is the future!
The always impressive Glamour Lakes is back with another solid release, the excellent Paraded EP. The title track creates a feel-good, dance vibe with its fluttering synth sounds and gorgeous female vocals. The Paraded EP is available via bandcamp. Follow Glamour Lakes on the cloud.
Nohumanfolk is the work of London-based electronic musician, Joe Wilkinson. His penchant for crafting textural electronic music is on full display in his collection of tracks on soundcloud. His most recent, ‘Piccolo’, is arguably the standout with its array of experimental sounds and soothing vocal samples. Definitely one to watch, follow Nohumanfolk on the cloud.
Last week I was alerted to the sounds of UK-based duo, Root-z. The work of Jack Gwyer and James North, they have delivered two high calibre tracks to date. The duo’s most recent offering, ‘Time Lapse‘, is a soothing, ambient piece. However, it was their striking debut effort, ‘Calling‘, that really grabbed my attention last week. The track creates a dark atmospheric feel full of mystery and intrigue thanks to its emotive vocal sounds and crisp production. Both tracks are free to download here.
After a brief bandcamp dig I landed on the sounds of Ghost Parties. Upon arrival I felt like I had returned to great summer of 2009 where the genre that starts with a ‘C’ really started to come to the fore. That genre is of course, the much-debated Chillwave. I’ve always liked this type of music and this Ghost Parties release was a welcome reminder of those good vibes. The standout track, ‘Good Morning‘, instantly hits that feel-good, summery spot. Grab the six-track release for free here.
The ever-impressive Romanian producer Polochord serves up another tasty electronic treat with his latest piece of work, ‘Afloat‘. The track bounces along nicely with some delicate percussive clicks, smooth bass sounds, and subtle vocal samples. ‘Afloat‘ is free to download here, follow Polochord‘s work on the cloud.
