Hot Electronic: November 2022 Edition
This month’s edition of Hot Electronic features cherry flavored synth-pop that feels like it was plucked from the soundtrack of a surreal movie from the 1990s; a retro futuristic darkwave track that pushes the boundaries of reality; electronica that sounds like it is part of a relaxation simulation; a hypnotic beatscape that will send you into a state of deep concentration; a witchy, utterly magical early 2000s flavored mashup and more.

Eyeliner - Rachaellica
Taken from the album Cherry Vision Systems, ‘Eyeliner’ features cloud-like synthesis with a gorgeous retro flavor. This track feels like it is from the soundtrack of a surreal movie from the 1990s; playing over a scene drenched in neon cherry light; where the main character sits in a room surrounded by the blinking lights of gadgets and synthesizers, plotting. The chorus proclaims “But don't tell me you've been awake all night/For a girl who can't even do her Eyeliner right” - truly amazing.
The Fine Line Between Paranoia and Fantasy - Violation Drive
Last night I watched “ The Viewing” (Episode 7 of Guillermo del Toro's horror anthology show “ Cabinet of Curiosities'') - and this song would not be out of place within this surreal, retro futuristic, borderline dreamlike world. Taken from the newly released album “Heretics, Pt.I” this has a gorgeous analog feel, one that allows you to feel like you have let yourself go, and become fully alive.
Dysphoria - Tom Rasmussen
This newest release from Tom Rasmussen is a truly magnificent blend of electronics, pop and house. Opening with haunting vocals, whispered over a lush bed of 80s style synthesis (the production on the pre-chorus is nothing short of goosebump inducing) - it then dives headfirst into a house powered chorus that will send you into orbit with euphoria.
Aftercare - Karim Kahar
The sounds of a simulation powering up; followed by a cosmic wonderland of synthesis. This dissolves into a gorgeous electronica chorus that invokes feelings of nostalgia and fantasy, pushing the boundaries of reality, and sending you into a state of lucid dreaming.
Bang (My Body) - Chase Icon
A fantastically fun mix of electronic and r&b ( with a slight mid 2000s flavor); the vocals possessing the feel of being sampled over the beat - this is glitchy, energetic, and effortlessly cool.
Rhythm Engine - Missing Ear
Taken from the album ‘Skyquakes’ - ‘Rhythm Engine’ features complex beats, gleaming synthesis, with ice like textures - the incredible sound design is a treat for your ears, and will send you into a state of deep concentration.
Dance Now - DJ Sabrina The Teenage DJ
This is a delicious blend of all the things I love; the witchyness of the early 2000s, the shimmering glittery feel of the magic in shows like Sabrina The Teenage Witch, and most of all, the DIY mashup quality. Dance Now has a nostalgic and deeply touching quality to it - while managing to be something that is unlike anything else - this will warm your heart, no matter where you are.
Look ( All Night Mix ) - Doss, Rye Rye
An earth-shattering, highly addictive banger from 00:00 - 02:42 ( the entire length of the song) - this is reminiscent of the basslines in early 2000s electronic explorations, that resulted in them becoming classics - this will be one of your new favorite songs.
