Spacious Sweep – VGM Vol. 1

This album is so eighties you’d think it was recorded with an Amiga. It’s heavy synth-laden, gated drums and glittery soundscapes are completely lost in time, and at times it can feel cheesier than a four seasons pizza. There’s some interesting and effective melodies dotted around this retro love-fest, but it does sound rather dated.

Malena Pérez – Offering

Light, airy and seductive – just a few words to describe this album, complete with a vanishing warmth of notes and detailed percussion. Submerge yourself in Malena Pérez’s bright and brilliant soundscape, built up with layer upon layer of subtle textures and great distinction.

Daedalus – Drown Out

In this record you have something entirely out of the ordinary – an unusual electronic album. The melodies seem drunk with a certain stylistic wonkiness, but it works somehow. You also have a real mish-mash of samples that go beyond the basics and towards the stratosphere of highly accomplished producing.

Nvoki – ep1

This record has a real zesty and creative vibrancy to it. It’s mixed with some unorthodox vocal samples, drizzled with economical synth stabs and seasoned with a rich spice of percussion tomfoolery. It’s a well-produced effort and has an almost Chiptune feel at times.

Mozart’s Sister – Being

This scuttling, beat-heavy electronic record sounds somewhat enhanced by the vocals, but not that much. There doesn’t seem to be much meaning in this. There are so many other artists doing this kind of thing, following the masses of sheep. That’s perhaps a touch far for this record, but it’s not far off it.
