Looking for something new?
This is the place to post really original electronica albums. Stuff that really stands out in a flood of music. I can't link yet but as soon as I can I'll link all of these directly. All of these are free at either Ektoplazm or bandcamp (I'll note which). Let's get started
Man Of No Ego - Web of Life//Ektoplazm
Despite being his first and only album, Man of no Ego has done something spectacular. The best way to describe MoNE is an electronic Pink Floyd. He uses the 432hz tuning method, a very powerful tool indeed. It's painfully obvious that great care went into each and every song. With mellowed out beats, carefully layered synths and a prominent sampling of the late great Alan Watts this album is a diamond for any lover of downtempo and ambient. And if you're just on your way for a mellow night look no further. |Top Tracks: Galactic Girl; K-Pax; Intersperse
Atman Construct - Deconstructionalism//Ektoplazm
Atman Construct is one of those artists who is always striving to create something new. His synth work is astoundingly good and he pulls influence from everything, from classic rock to the PlayStation 1, and even from classic literature and nature documentaries. This album covers everything from old school house to experimental breakbeat while never feeling chaotic or forced. Every track stands on its own and has its own style.|Top Tracks: Delusions of Granular, Do Elephants Dream of Electric Trumpets
Somatoast - Withinity
Somatoast has taken Downtempo, a normally mellowed out genre, and made it chaotic in a beautiful, beautiful way. His synths are choppy, his style easily recognizable, his stereo work great and his voice samples catchy and interesting. Always big, and always trippy, Somatoast's album is also great for the dancefloor with its solid 4/4 rhythms and melodic breakdowns. His voice samples blend perfectly with the music and are designed to trip out your mind. Not much else can be said without repeating myself.| Top Tracks: Schizophrenic Mystic; Right Brain Boogie
Ayla Nereo - Hollow Bone//Bandcamp
The first thing you'll notice about Ayla is her astounding voice. She is also by far the greatest songwriter I have ever seen, mysterious and mystical. Her last releases have been more of a folksy sound, but with Hollow Bone she's taken her folk roots and blended them with a light electronic twist and its truly something magical. Every song is a powerful message, the album in its whole is truly a journey. Ayla's magical voice will carry you far. If you listen to any album on this list I would suggest this one before any others as it is truly something else. |Top Tracks - Let it In; Show Yourself; From the Ground Up
That's all for now, I'm tired of typing. Until next time.
