Ambient

Opaline – Shade Virtual

This album re-examines the platform of ambient music, composed largely with blurry, dazed pads nestling under blip-blop synthesized reverberations. There is a calmness in it’s sonic air but there’s also an added drizzle of sinister intent. This isn’t the most distinctive music landscape you’ll hear, but it has a certain allure and appeal you just can’t explain.

Daniokami – Hopelesss

Here we have a pulsing sonic tremor running through ears long after you’ve finished listening to it. There’s also some clever production trickery to create plenty of tension and atmospheric intrigue. This is a throbbing heart into the often misunderstood galaxy of dark ambient soundscapes.

*Iviko azf! – Arborescente

An album soaked and washed with texture. It features some squidgy and subtle little synthesizer decoration with a DIY aesthetic, which is good and bad to some degree. Musically the album is under-developed, but it’s quite unusual to hear ambient electronics with an almost analogue quality.
