Candid Oak – The Path Forward

In Chill, Electronic, Instrumental, Zone Out by Jeff

This is the first thing I’ve heard from Norwegian producer Candid Oak and it makes for quite the introduction. “The Path Forward” is a delightfully complex electronic tune with an energetic, but mellow, vibe. Rubbery synths and warped vocal samples cascade alongside a sturdy beat, creating an emotionally charged tune that just feels right. From start to finish it’s an …

The young producer’s music always has an ethereal quality to it, and “Orchid” continues that trend—striking a unique balance with whimsical sounds and a dark, foreboding atmosphere. Silva manages to combine these unexpected elements to create a song that …

HU₵₵I – WORLD

In Dark, Instrumental, Trap, Zone Out by Jeff

OG trap artist HU₵₵I takes a deliberate approach when it comes to releasing new music, but the quality is always out of this world. His new song “WORLD” is a somber affair that features ethereal production, immaculate trap percussion, waves of warm synths, and monologued vocals threaded throughout. It’s insane how much emotional weight HU₵₵I can establish within a single …

Augest – Gloss (Otherwise Fine Remix) (Audio Aquarium Premiere)

In Chill, Dreamy, Electronic, Instrumental, Remix by Jeff

Electronic duo Otherwise Fine are back with a silky smooth new remix of producer Augest‘s song, “Gloss”. They put an energizing spin on the dreamy original, introducing speedy build ups and explosive, synth-laden drops.

Great Dane – Former Friends

In Beats, Electronic, Instrumental, Trap by Jeff

I can’t get enough of Great Dane‘s understated brand of trap music. In a genre that’s filled with loud and aggressive songs, his style stands out with a stripped down, pure sound. “Former Friends” is the first taste of his upcoming album Delta Fly, and it features the most hypnotic beat I’ve heard in a minute. It’s got a west …

Catching Flies – Ghosts

In Chill, Downtempo, Dreamy, Electronic, Instrumental, Zone Out by Jeff

London producer Catching Flies continues to impress with his new single “Ghosts”. Like his other work, this song is incredibly detailed and well produced—with an array of instruments combining to create an intensely emotive sound. The steady beat is layered with melancholic acoustic guitar, asiatic sounding strings, and a smoky saxophone section that carries the song home. If you’re not …

Koresma – Northern Lights

In Chill, Downtempo, Dreamy, Electronic, Instrumental, Zone Out by Jeff

Koresma recently dropped the incredibly chilled out “Nothern Lights”, which is the second song from his upcoming EP North. This LA based producer is currently one of my favorite artists in the realm of downtempo instrumental music. You can tell a lot of love goes into each and every one of his songs, and “Northern Lights” is no different—it’s smooth …

Groke – Drowning

In Beats, Electronic, Instrumental, Trap by Jeff

“Drowning” is a trippy instrumental from up and coming UK based producer Groke. He says it’s a song about “the turbulent descent into the deep blue darkness”, which nicely sums up how this one feels. An intro with frenetic strings leads into an otherworldly vocal style synth, then plummets into the abyss with a monstrous beat. Before it ends, the …
