So what’s happening here – have I finally lost it? Ambient is supposed to be Sundays, right?
Well, the case is that there’s been so many fantastic ambient releases lately, so I simply have a surplus in my pipeline. Gotta serve’em goodies while they are hot out of the oven!
Salar Niknafs – Point of Departure
Starting off with one of the “cyberpunk” ambient discoveries of mine. Not that “cyberpunk ambient” is a genre (yet?), but I am really on the hunt for ambient tracks that gives me the cyberpunk vibes, with keywords like: Dark, futuristic, experimental, alternative, underground. And I find this here.
The bass is what builds the entire foundation of these associations. Potentially threatening but also reassuring. And repetitious like a machine. And the combination of stringy instruments on top creates a fantastic contrast that builds this track to become something one will remember.
A fantastic release from an artist largely unknown.
This one deserves support by the ambient community!
TROVA & Dashii- Life and Death
Trova is one of the favourite ambient artists on this site. His way of colouring the canvas with gorgeous washed out colours simply puts him in a league of his own.
And this track is no exception. Simple by construction, traditional to the core, effective in all it’s beauty.
One simply can not ignore Trova.
americanjunky – Shallow
And speaking of traditional ambient, I’m rounding off with this dreamy creation from the US of A, mr Americanjunky.
And, well, if his trips result in pieces like these I guess we all should be thankful and enjoy the fruits of his addiction. 🙂
All three findings are added to our increasingly follow-worthy Spotify playlist “Ambient Universe“, where we collect all the best new Ambient music as we discover them.
