Nicolas Kluzek is a Parisian born, Dublin-based artist and producer who’s sounds will, as we found out with previous single ’95to78′, delight – although not exclusively – the children of the night.

Kluzek’s preference and/or penchant is for flavours of a slower tempo, slumbering nocturnal electronic delicacies – as evidenced by the aforementioned previous single and new one, ‘Dublin 6′. Moving at a slumbering pace, it is a chilled and tranquil ode to his Irish home that gives on a reassuring aura of pure calm. Peaceful chimes mingle with flourishes of soft hip-hop beats, vocal samples, flute and washed out fiddle tune, ‘Dublin 6′ will leave you dreamily drifting in a state of blissful relaxation. Kluzek has served up yet another majestic track, one that washes over you with ease and leaves you all the better for making its acquaintance.

Listen to ‘Dublin 6′ below and if that is to your liking, there are more of that ilk right here.

Originally from West Wales, Tom Morgan aka Tomos traded these quiet peaceful surroundings for the vibrant streets of South East London, and it is a transition which is reflected in his elegant blend of electronica.

Drawing from the calmness of the countryside and the spirited energy of the city, Morgan alludes to the often overlooked simple pleasures and narrow slices of life in his music. Tomos’ captures this juxtaposition of calm and energy with perfection on his debut single ‘Surface Tension’. A wonderful piece of lush, elegant, bright and soul soothing electronica that oozes with feel-good vibes that glide gracefully across dreamy surroundings and a soft tempo. A perfect companion for Tomos’ soft, soothing and transfixing vocals which are engulfed in ethereal tones and tranquil textures.

Bels Lontano – ‘At the Horizon’

avatars-000490647027-ijb6uc-original

Bels Lontano AKA composer/producer Bret Bohman is an electronic music project from the US.

Taking his inspiration from a wide variety of musical and non-musical sources – love, anxiety, beats and ambience – the project explores concepts of liminal spaces, natural beauty, therapy and personal growth. A steady bass thump and crunchy beats carve a way through the ambient atmospheric soundscape and silky melody. Glistening strings mingle with glitchy sounds and a winding intensity as elegance co-exists with a foreboding sense of mild eeriness lurking in the background. A rich sonic creation, it finds a sweet spot between beauty and terror, and downtempo ambient sounds and chugging intensity of techno. Magnificent!

Listen to ‘At the Horizon’ below and it is but one facet of his forthcoming EP Kind Decade.

Pines – ‘Glisten’

Aussie duo Pines – aka Adam Dormand and James Kenneally – hone a fusion of blissful relaxation and lush electronic sounds.

The Adelaide pair’s latest single is the aptly named ‘Glisten’ and will take its place on Pines debut record, which is due sometime in the new year. Inspired by a high-speed journey train across Germany in 2017, providing the perfect explanation for its ebb and flow, as it draws you in with magnetism before fully enveloping you in its blissful creation. A subtle melody is joined by pitched vocal chops as a delicate arpeggio creates suspense and teases the space for a flurry of swirling synths, hard-hitting beats and delicate vocal to breathe, and create a beautiful sense of euphoria. Precise, pristine and enthralling – it ekes out a space where colour and warmth can coexist with a glacial but imperious ambience.

Listen to ‘Glisten’ below – and keep an eye (and ear) out for Pines’ debut in the new year.
