Midsplit Delivers Summertime Sadness with ‘Lovely’

This post was originally published on this site

Montreál-based Midsplit takes a new approach to ‘Lovely’, with cold-hearted vocal manipulation and deep, somber 808s through single. While Midsplit’s usual releases tend to be light-hearted and full to the brim with positivity-evoking sounds, ‘Lovely’ with NO-ONE, Jordan Kasedy, and A-SHO is reminiscent of Billie Eilish’s dark melodic tones with a robot-glitched chorus. The introduction

Diplo and Flume share ambient ‘Secular Sabbath’ performances during Coachella

Over the last three weekends, Diplo has certainly squeeze Southern California for all the juice it’s worth. Between two weekends of Coachella, followed by a performance at Stagecoach, Diplo gave Indio a run for it’s money. However, he still managed to find time for some much needed rest and relaxation at a much less-publicized event—Secular Sabbath, just a few miles down the road in Desert Hot Springs, right outside of Palm Springs.

Joined by Flume, the pair shared ambient tunes to soundtrack a night of introspection and meditation, close enough to Coachella to feel the event’s energy, but far enough away to feel the distance at the historic Two Bunch Palms resort. Secular Sabbath is a running event series, started in 2016, put on by California-native Genevieve Medow-Jenkins. Secular Sabbath events promote self-care and intentional, spiritual relaxation.

“It was a blast. I got to sit in a hot tub, I took a nap – there was great stuff going on all at the same time. And I got to play some cool music and I loved it. It’s good to try new things,” Diplo told Rolling Stone of his Secular Sabbath experience.


For a man who has dropped an album, a house music EP, and launched a country music project in less than a month’s time, managing a work-life balance has got to be a tall task, though the Mad Decent head honcho tends to make it look effortless. “Secular Sabbath was special, and I got to chill out, which is kind of rare. It’s kind of like the anti-festival,” says Diplo. With an itinerary like Diplo’s, a swing by Secular Sabbath sounds like a crucial stop amid three weekends of chaos in Southern California.

Tor lays down an eclectic, low-end wonderland ahead of Lightning In A Bottle [Mix]

Tor

Amidst a blanket of monotony in the bass world, Tor has risen as one of the new wave of forward-thinking talent introducing an aural breath of fresh air.

The producer wriggled his way into the spotlight not too long ago thanks in part to Emancipator, and quickly made a name for himself thanks to his creative arrangement and fearlessness around pushing his own musical boundaries. His debut album on Emancipator’s Loci imprint, Drum Therapy, was met with critical acclaim, thus leading him to land a second album on the label in 2016 that most would say conquered the Sophomore slump.

Tor will be making his Lightning In A Bottle debut come Memorial Day weekend, where he will be delighting his crowds with a multifaceted performance. Before seeing him, however, he decided to make an official “introduction” to his work:

“I wanted to make this mix as bit of an introduction for people who maybe haven’t heard my music before, mixed in with some songs I’ve been enjoying lately as well as a showcase of what I’ve been up to recently with some unreleased remixes and hints of what you might hear at my LIB set this year. Cheers!”

Anjunadeep stumbles upon ambient gold in boerd [EP Review]

This post was originally published on this site

boerd

Curatorial excellence on Anjunadeep‘s part is evident in their newest signee, boerd. The James Grant-run imprint isn’t afraid to travel outside its usual deep and progressive confines every so often, and in this case has stumbled upon a promising ambient talent.

Boerd’s debut EP on the label, Static, is intellectual and nuanced, playing around with spacey elements, white noise, and atmospheric soundscapes to create complexity sans a rhythmic crutch. Such a feat is easy for the Swedish newcomer, who draws extensive experience from his time as a double bassist for various prolific orchestras.

“Lid,” for example, opens Static on a warm note, with crackles lining the background of a guitar-laden soundscape whose chords gently caress the ears. This sentiment persists throughout the EP, continuing on into a smooth, piano and vocal-assisted “Fragment II” and a dissonant, string-filled “Void.” Time is skewed without a constant metronome, making these three tracks feel like they fly by.

Like “Fragment II,” “Diorama” involves heightened lower frequencies and subtle percussion, pairing together with warm background accents and jubilant synths to create a feeling of elation. “Blind” is the most energized track on Static, employing guitar riffs, powerful verses, and hollow vocal edits into a nostalgic, laid-back listen.

“Ebb” closes Static with an homage to classical, Medieval sounds. A choir hums out somber melodies, with the mood further amplified by slight hints of oregon, and moving piano and synth progressions. Though minimal, the piece has a profound effect.

It’s safe to say boerd’s time in the electrosphere spearheading a new ambient movement will be one to watch.
