Fresh from the upcoming EP City Of Lights, expected this July, Umair Ali’s Doldrums makes for a delicately breath-taking audio journey that slowly but surely envelops the listener in deeply human thoughts and feelings.
An EP that consistently rewards its audience for spending time under its spell. Fusing blissfully ambient delicacies with fragments of organic & often tribal-like audio, SHEETS0 brings through both an easy-listening & uplifting dance vibe, with detailed, creative soundscapes, and a collection of deeply thoughtful, passionate songs; a rare & impressive collection of qualities.
A truly emotive and fairly show-stopping piece of music. The release calms the room in an instant – quieting down the noise of the world and rightfully soothing the mind as it softly breathes this journey to dreamland into the space around you.
Emmy-winning composer and singer Cielo Pordomingo has released her fourth studio album and it’s one that offers a uniquely expressive, engaging and beautiful audio journey for its audience.
This is the work of an extremely talented composer and producer, with an ear for both electronic and organic musicality, and a general passion for music in all of its forms – this translates beautifully as you let this music work its magic for you. Absolutely worth losing yourself within for a while.
Ltronnika takes listeners down a decidedly retro, multi-layered pathway of electronic sound design with this latest release. Effectively encapsulating the very essence of exploration, the track is distinctly varied and sees numerous different sections and samples emerge as it moves through its three and a half minute journey.
There’s a subtle sense of rising energy – the lyrics, the very concept and title of the song, and the consistent movement musically throughout, all helps this calmness evolve into an incredibly uplifting mood.
Stealing The Secret kicks off the journey well – starts up the dream, begins the raining down of lights and colors. Darkness and light intertwine, working against and with each other intermittently. The whole thing is well worth experiencing in full. A blissful and provocative collection that takes you somewhere completely new.
This EP introduces moments of deep house alongside of ambient, dreamlike and cinematic softness. There are stages to each piece, a story-line or string of emotions led to it, and as a listener those feelings and details are conjured up in you as the music plays out.
Progressing through its near six-minute journey from quiet delicacy to the rhythmic embrace of a neo-classical, EDM-kissed contemporary dream, Ozone is an experience categorically designed to embrace and envelop its listener.
This beat gives the composition a pulse, a notable level of humanity that drives things along. You feel as if the soundscape is slowly enveloping you, and that somehow your heart-rate is rising in the process – perhaps perfectly well encapsulating whatever it is that the word Dive conjures up for the listener.
Norway’s SIENNÁ returns this year with a post-six-minute offering that is the ambient and conceptual What Matters. The song takes its time to work through the various ideas within – this appears as a necessary artistic process for the songwriter, rather than a simple attempt to gather an audience and entertain.
