Now You See Me EP Unleashes Electro-Beats & Riveting Pop

9 Feb

David Browning wows with his modern tracks from his Now You See Me EP. Upon first listening, his music sounds like a mix of theatrical songs and Canadian pop that has been playing in my headphones since high school. A mixture of tracks, a favorite Call Me When You’re Single  mixes narrative storytelling and metaphors of the single life. Stay Over mixes it up with feel good EDM and electronic beats you want to run through your veins. With the genre of EDM fluctuating up and down, Browning makes it a no brainer to lump him in the category of heart-pumping pop that keeps us listening and anticipating his next creation.

Purple Skies Carries EDM Vibes By Acidic Base

25 Jan

In Siddharth Goswami’s debut album, Acidic Base delivers high-quality EDM on Purple Skies. The album overall carries the just right amount level of synthesized beats mixed with the carefully orchestrated sound. Standout tracks on Purple Skies include Halycon which has the perfect balance of synth soul vibes and the undertone beat you hear in a lot of nostalgic galaxy rock. Another favorite on the album points in the direction of the song Blurred. It reminds me of old school LCD Soundsystem, Justice, and a dash of Ratatat. All of these bands are leaders within electronica and dance music, which should definitely let Acidic Base know they are on the right track for being in alignment with making their name known as one to watch within the genre.

8 Aug

Dep’s album We Are The Lights That Will Not Go Out sets the scene of electronica and new age sound as a craft. Throughout the album, the tracks are carefully layered with specifically laid out tracks encompassing a mixture of fade-outs, wave sounds, and ambient rock. While listeners may not connect that all of these tracks were produced by Danny Peck performing as artist Dep, the unique sound of these tracks standing alone adds to how the producing skills throughout the album are intertwined in each individually unique in both emotion and structure arrangements on the album. The world of electronica and new age music is one that’s hard to stand out with a signature sound. Dep finds his way effortlessly through this album and as an offside leading Ted talks on Anatomy of Electronica Music. Without a doubt, We Are The Lights That Will Not Go Out leaves listeners with a new and expansive look at what electronic music can be in 2018, but also stuns with the musical craftsmanship of Dep.

Metaspion Revives Scandinavian Tradition With Folk & Electronic Sound

7 Jun

Merging the world of Scandinavian sound with folk and electronic beats make listeners intrigued as they listen to Metaspion’s album Folktronika Schmolkfonika. With violins and a distinct sound within their music, one can hear the worldly and gothic tone that their music carries. When thinking about artists that are similar, musicians within the gothic genre stand out. Spooky Black, Crystal Castles, and a dash of Dresden Dolls all come to mind throughout the album. Alongside these similarities, the characteristics of EDM and lo-fi rock make their cameos as well. Formed by Morten Richter, he created the band out of a yearning to get back into music after a hiatus from the music industry. Previously being a lead performer of a glam rock band, Metaspion carries a different vibe. The name translates to meta- about itself, and spion which means spy. Richter cites that it evolved as a result of therapy sessions and seeking within. With plans to maintain the interest in Norwegian music and sound, Richter will be releasing another album, complete with more unique instruments, distinct sound, and an unwavering passion to spread the word of a music maker.
