Warning Light – ‘Little Hearts, Big (Interludes)’

WLpromoideaWaves

With a decade’s worth of work already to his name, Warning Light is to release new album At The End Of The Road on October 27, the culmination of three years graft.

Said to herald a sprawling return to his ambient roots, a deep synthesizer trip to the end of all charted spaces; the first single from the forthcoming record, ‘Little Hearts, Big (Interludes)’, certainly backs up that assertion. An exhilarating six-plus-minutes, it is spearheaded by minimalist analogue drones interlaced with pulsing techno rhythms, accented by spacey dub and motorik psychedelia, before eventually becoming consumed by waves of glistening chimes. An all consuming, immersive and hypnotic blurring of electronic genres. Without doubt, one of the most enticing, intriguing and dynamic songs you are likely to hear and needless to say, Warning Light is a producer at the peak of his powers.

New album At The End Of The Road is out on October 27, for now, enjoy the quite frankly stunning ‘Little Hearts, Big (Interludes)’ below.

Introducing: Michael Rogel

artworks-000235533545-9jr3vb-original

New Mexico native Michael Rogel has a touch of magic about him when it comes to producing big, banging tunes; Influenced by industrial techno and house, Rogel deals strictly in big old dance club classics.

Rogel is a pretty prolific producer too, in the last 12 months he released LP Hail Mary, a string of singles and an EP. The most recent product of this prolificy is ‘Street Night'; a track that encapsulates what Rogel is all about in just over three minutes. It is a dancefloor-ready blend of big beats, heavy bass, rickety percussion and feverish energy, combined with all manner of electronic noises, alarms, sirens and heavenly vocals. The same can be said for ‘In The Air’ albeit a more tempered take on the floor filling classics. Rogel is well worth keeping tabs one, for both the quality and quantity of his output is on point.

You can check out ‘Street Night’ & ‘In The Air’ below now.

Introducing: Marius

Marius is a 21-year-old producer from Norway, and he’s releasing an EP on Pelican Fly – the Belgian label behind Cashmere Cat and Lido – later this year.

Based in Oslo, Marius has been making waves with his colourful and imaginative sounds thus far; combining everything from electronica, new wave, trap, psych and rock together. Latest single ‘Lame’ wonderfully whisks together hard-hitting beats and glitches with some supremely potent psych tones, for a full-colour, shimmering and sparkling psychedelic pop meets electronica experience. The delights don’t end there with the genre-defying producer, his previous single ‘Easy’ is an even greater heady brew of wonder. It pushes and pulls in all manner of directions, it shifts and shoves as it crashes, thuds and explodes with a ferocious energy and electric potency. Its gritty, the beats are compelling as they are potent as they shatteringly shuffle with wicked rhythm, as ‘Easy’ slides from light to dark, and calm to stormy in no time. The transition is smooth and the track is a beast.

As yet, the date for Marius’ new EP is unknown but go off what we’ve got here, it looks like it will golden.

For now, check out ‘Lame’ & ‘Easy’ below:

Aussie electro-indie duo Nocturnal Tapes are prepping the release of their maiden EP ‘Visions IV’ (due August 25), ahead of which, are offering up a taste of the forthcoming record with dancefloor-ready new single ‘Wake Up’.

It’s a hypnotic and danceable track awash with swelling sonic synths, lush textures, throbbing bass, pulsing electro beats and enchanting vocals. ‘Wake Up’ is an irresistible, intricately woven slice of house-infused electronica, falling somewhere between LCD Soundsystem, Talking Heads and more recent Tame Impala output. Good company to be named alongside no doubt, but it’s not without merit. ‘Wake Up’ is stunning introduction to Nocturnal Tapes (and their forthcoming EP too). Pulsing big beats, swelling synth and colourful sounds, what more can you ask for?

Listen to the colourful, neon-lit electro that is ‘Wake Up’ below:

Introducing: KLANGPLANET

CD COVER KLANGPLANET

KLANGPLANET is the moniker of German producer Frieder Mollat.

While Mollat’s work extends back to the mid ’90s, 2017 and KLANGPLANET marks a personal milestone embarking on his solo adventure with he first steps of which, being his aptly titled debut EP, Electronic Journey. KLANGPLANET’s preference is for the chilled, downtempo and meticulously crafted electronic flavours, which are merged with field-recordings from different surroundings to produce an alluring sound collage and musical journey. His latest single ‘Island’ is a prime example with its ambient beats, deep house grooves and relaxing sound of seagulls and lapping waves; delivered with an unwavering precision it is transfixing and tranquil in equal measure. With its lush approach, ‘Downtown’ is so laid-back and chill it is almost a lullaby (even the sound of distance emergency sirens can’t break its spell). Add to that some some lapping waves and pattering beats, you may quickly find yourself destined for the land of nod. This is vivid, cinematic and immersive; music to get lost in, escapism at its very finest.

Stop what you are doing and tune into KLANGPLANET’s EP Electronic Journey, it’s available here right now.
