Beautiful (She)

Beautiful (She)’ is pretty much as described, a wonderfully rewarding journey into the realms of emotive electronic music. It seems there is no end to the talents of Twos, who is prolific in his/her production of high calibre electronic opuses. ‘Beautiful (She)’ shines with some lush percussive clicks and truly breathtaking vocal samples. Free download via the cloud. Get lost in the otherworldly sounds below.

By Your Side

I know next to nothing about this new project, Twos. We are presented with a soundcloud comprised of two wonderfully crafted electronic pieces, ‘By Your Side’ and ‘With You’. The former seems to be garnering more attention. The impressive track is overflowing with lush dreamlike soundscapes and echoing vocal sounds. Both tracks are free to download via soundcloud. Check out the video for ‘By Your Sidehere. I should note that I was introduced to Twos through Sleepy Taryn’s tumblr page.
