Welsh producer R.Seiliog aka Robin Edwards has announced he will release a new album Megadoze, on November 30 via Turnstile.

With this most welcome news comes lead track ‘Opal Drift’ which suggests subtle shift from the sonic palette of previous albums Doppler (2013) and In Hz (2016) – both masterful works. ‘Opal Drift’ is a wonderful slice of deep flowing ambient techno that opens with a gently evocative sound of trickling water that flows through ambient textures and synth waves along a subtle beat and gentle pulsing rhythm, swelling to softly envelope all in its carefully sculpted surrounding. Mesmerising stuff that certainly adds to the excitement for the forthcoming album.

Get hypnotised below with ‘Opal Drift’ – Megadoze is out on November 30 via Turnstile.

Precise, pristine and hypnotic – the pair once again eke out a space where colour and warmth can coexist with a glacial but imperious ambience.

London and Berlin based producer Daniel Brandt has shared new single ‘Sailboats III’, ahead of his album Channels, released on October 12th.

Brandt is a producer with preference for ambient electronic soundscapes with a techno-core, often down-tempo, moody and deeply atmospheric – they are in no way listless – these are late night / early morning jams with an emphasis on mood, groove and rhythm. Capturing this essence perfectly is Brandt’s new single ‘Sailboats III’. An immersive jaunt through a world of minimal ambient electronics with clean, crisp beats and rich textures which create dark atmospheres, emotion and a feeling of venturing into the unknown. Propelled on a pulsating bass line it is a vivid, vital and versatile; it is suited to late night club or home environs. A deeply enthralling and transfixing experience, ‘Sailboats III’ is a mesmerizing introduction to his forthcoming album Channels.

London producer Catching Flies is busy prepping the release of a new album and the first fruits of that labour come in the shape of new single, ‘New Gods’.

Joining forces with rapper Jay Prince and multi-instrumentalist Oscar Jerome, together the trio create ‘New Gods'; a warm aural feast of jazzy, soulful and slow-slung, hip-hop grooves. Sweeping electronic textures coalesce with soft drum rhythms, twinkling keys, flourishes of strings and bright flecks of guitar and are smoothly intertwined around the natural spoken rhythms of Jay Prince’s eloquent and thought provoking ponderings. An elegant, beautiful and dreamy blend of perfectly balance sounds, textures and pallets – ‘New Gods’ is a jazz-fueled hip hop lullaby.

That so far unnamed album is expected in late 2018 or early 2019 – for now feast your ears on the wonderful ‘New Gods’.
