The track launches with a soft piano and a mellow flute, before the singer’s soulful vocals make way to a drum beat. The overall experimental vibe of the album seems to match up with the artist’s earthy sensibilities. Her mastery of the electric harp is also fun to watch.
Lone is the most consistent artist to make it on my annual ‘Best of’ lists. In 2013, it was the rave clapping ‘Airglow Fires‘ and in 2014 it was the bouncy ambient masterpiece ‘Begin to Begin.’
He’s at it again, this time with a 90s Prodigy-esque techno track with quick starting drum kick and pestering bass. He recently performed the track live on Britain’s Channel 4 Four to the Floor show. Check it out below.
He also just remixed Melbourne’s Kllo’s ‘Bollide’ track which was released early on Ghostly International this year. Stream it after the jump.
Boxcutter is Northern Ireland electronic producer Barry Lynn. I first discovered him back in 2006 with the drum machine track ‘Skuff’d‘ on his Oneiric album debut.
Boxcutter has released multiple albums, EPs, and singles since but on his latest track ‘Canopy,’ he’s proving once again that class is permanent. The chopped jazz break is sure to delight fans who admire his moody dubstep aesthetic.
Hairy Hands is an intergalactic sound voyager from the UK. ‘YNA’ is the second single from his debut album Magic. He describes the track as “a party track about aliens,” or as Spin Magazine puts it, “laden with spaceship synths and spastic rhythms, the track bounces like a soul-infused collaboration between Flying Lotus and Toro Y Moi.”
From the Sonar Kollectiv label known for its stellar downtempo releases comes Mooryc’s third album Wiped Out, featuring the Berliner’s exploration of folky electronica sounds. Upon first listen, the soft melodies may remind you of Jose Gonzalez‘s magical voice.

“Euphoria Guaranteed – or your money back!” That’s the tagline from Polish house producers Earth Trax and Newborn Jr.
Their two-track EP blends saxophone and flute samples into respective jazzy balearic cuts. I expect nothing than the less than timeless dance music from South London’s Rhythm Section International. Stream ‘Flute track’ after the jump.
Square Lines are French duo Nicolas Le Mée and Simon Jolliet. Their debut EP Transmissions Overseas is an exploration of abstract sounds, much in tune with many of the other ambient artists signed to London-based Apollo Records.
You can download the drum-infused atmospheric single ‘Shingaya Square’ and pre-order the EP now on their Bandcamp page.
