  • A:M stays true to the essence of what make his music so likeable

    Nothing else like this. I have listened to other artists similar to A:M but nothing comes close. The album “A:M Instrumentals” and the EP “A:M Instrumentals Vol. 1” are excellent electronic recordings from A:M. Rich pianos, dreamy landscapes, vocal samples and syrupy basslines make these records a must have for...
  • Aastik Koshy: “SARASWATI LOUNGE VOL.1” is perfect for any situation

    The latest effort by Aastik Koshy entitled the “SARASWATI LOUNGE VOL.1”, finds the chill out, ambient and lounge producer, elevating his signature sound with more contemplative and thought-provoking songwriting. Due to the organic sounding nature of this record, it will be hard for many to call this an electronic...
  • Illuid Haller: “Magic Theatre” – an experimental-infused bounce

    Illuid Haller aka GwangHyeon shows a unique flexibility and verve, a glowing life that drips, melts, and molds around the original sounds to be found on the album, “Magic Theatre”. He never competes with his contemporaries for attention, but it is always clear that he absolutely could, no matter their standing or...
  • Jim Session: “Storming” incorporates various influences

    Sometimes a recording amazes you because you’ve never heard anything like it.  But the opposite can also happen; a track blows you away because it seems to draw from lots of music you’ve heard and love, and combines the influences so perfectly it manages to transcend them altogether.  Such...
  • Aastik Koshy: “The Audiolounge – 1.0” – awe-inspiring!

    Aastik Koshy graduated with a degree in Sound Engineering from SAE and opened the doors of his music company Turquoise Sound Pvt.Ltd (TSC) in 2015 after moving to Goa, India. The company was created to release electronic music produced and composed by Aastik in chill out, ambient and lounge,...
  • That Guy: “Patterns In The Sky” trades in imagery and evocation

    That Guy’s sound can be compared to a fusion between surgical explorations by Autechre and elastic soundscapes by Bonobo. But he, of course, is in a genre of his own. Combining intricate beat-work with unresolved synth melodies that keep on swirling into inter-winding sonic tangles, That Guy creates a...
  • Delta Station: “An Unexpected Turn of Events” – an aural delight

    The little 14 year old Australian genius who goes by the moniker of Delta Station, has a new album out. And, somewhat predictably, it’s another utter and perfect treat. Before you listen to Delta Station’s latest album you really should leave all preconceptions at the door. Despite the connotations of the album’s title,...
  • Black Malachite: “Nightfall” is cohesive and focused

    The decision by any musical project to go without a vocalist will lead to either disaster or a determination to avoid redundancy. Add to that the fact that most bands live and die by the growth and maturity of their music. While niche music is a bit safer from this sort of unspoken principle,...
  • KC Shore: “Soup” lives by the less-is-more adage

    Picked up this EP a couple of days ago, but it’s been on repeat since then. It’s constantly surprising me and it’s completely lovely in every single way; intricate landscapes of sound created with absolute simplicity. KC Shore will sweep you into another world, crafted by the poetic gold...
