Hot Electronic - November 2023 Edition
This month's edition of Hot Electronic features; a song that sounds like a science fiction cult classic; an electronic song that sounds like it has been plucked from a shimmering dimension from your imagination; a song that sounds as mysterious as a misty Halloween night; a song that is a blend of trance and Y2K euphoria; some alt-pop and electronic blends, and more.
Featuring Anna Storm, Kiimi remix, Bimini, Girls of The Internet, Kiimi, Elaine Mai, soft centre, OTNES, Kelela, Karen Nyame KG, TDJ, Vitesse X, Sassy 009 and Elkin.
Moonlight - Bimini, Girls of The Internet (Kiimi remix)
A remix of Bimini and Girls of the Internet’s September release Moonlight (which came shortly after Bimini released an absolutely amazing full length EP in August, I am, quite simply, in awe). This remix comes from London-based, classically trained music producer and vocalist Kiimi. This grabs you from the moment you begin listening, as it opens with 1990s house percussion (the best kind); pairing it with cloud-like kaleidoscopic textures that sparkle over your ears. The soundscapes sound like they have been plucked from a shimmering realm in your imagination; treat your mind and ears, and let yourself explore the dimensions of this song.
Wannabe - Sassy 009
The newest release from producer, singer, songwriter Sassy 009, is a mysterious and mesmerizing affair (which is fitting, as it was released on Halloween). The production on this is so unique; some of the fx and percussion bring to mind the allure of the underground classics of the 1990s/early 2000s; the blending of these heavenly textures and the vocals will sweep you into a velveteen nighttime world.
Into Dream - TDJ, Vitesse X
I first came across Vitesse X via FM Skyline’s remix of Rash Devices (taken from the 2022 album Us Ephemeral), and every single release from the NY producer is a journey into an electronic wonderland. This newest song sees Vitesse X team up with producer TDJ, the results are trance-infused Y2K euphoria, over which icy ethereal vocals glimmer, becoming one with the slightly melancholy background soundscape before a deeply hypnotic chorus hits; this is gorgeous, it is one to lose yourself in.
The Moment - Elaine Mai, soft centre
Gentle electronica textures, a bassline that will remind you of Deadmau5, all mixed together with the ethereal vocals of soft centre - this newest release from producer Elaine Mai is as addictive and dreamy as all of her other productions. The verse gives way to a dreamy, nostalgic chorus, one that feels like a summer memory.
REDWOOD DUST - OTNES
This feels like a lucid dream that unfolds in a surreal landscape; the electronic textures induce a melancholic nostalgia, the chorus being a perfect blend of electronic with indie pop - this melts over your ears in a way that renders it impossible to stop listening to.
Contact - Kelela (Karen Nyame KG Remix)
This is a journey through the cosmos; it is a science fiction cult movie in sound format; this is a wholly immersive, gorgeously surreal listening experience. Lavish, vapor like pads shimmer over your ears, over which silky vocals glide; becoming more and more lush as time goes on. The chorus is entrancing; put this on, and escape to outer space.
Alright Darling - Elkin
A luscious blend of alt pop and electronics; this is a pastel cloud of shimmering wonder; the glossy vocals melt over the plush sonic backdrop; this sounds a lot like the artwork looks; absolutely divine.
Clown Tears - Anna Storm
Delicious dark pop vibes with glamorous electronic textures and droll vocals; a throbbing bassline done to perfection, this is so much fun from start to finish.
On the song Storm confides, "It is so easy to lose yourself while trying to please someone you love, but when you finally lose and let go of toxic people, you find yourself. Not everyone has the same heart as you, and not everyone deserves you-- KNOW YOUR WORTH. You do not have to stick around entertaining a clown-- YOU are the ringleader and YOU decide when the circus is up! Redirect all the love you invested into someone who didn't value you, and love yourself!"
