Time and Space - Jay Wires

The newest release from US based artist Jay Wires is a magical wonderland of synthesis. The icey temperatures portrayed in the artwork are conveyed with the wintery, slightly magical instrumentation; given all the more power by being mixed with a slightly psychedelic feel. The gorgeous chord progressions, the rising bed of electronics all result in something that is simultaneously haunting and warm.

You Understand - Clive From Accounts

‘You Understand’ is the musical embodiment of one of the deepest human desires; the euphoria of feeling understood by another person. We open with disco hi-hats, the percussion building gradually before pads and a bass line enter; over which reverb laden vocals sing ‘ You Understand Too’. The wall of music builds and builds; possessing a gorgeous analog quality that results in something thoroughly unique, that taps into something universal that we all crave.

This is so, so good. ‘Act Right’ opens with a smooth bed of cloud-like instrumentation, blended with a hypnotizing vocal line. This then melts into an incredibly skilled flow over a thoroughly infectious groove;  all blending and melting together to form a song that is just thoroughly delicious from start to finish.

HURT - Outsider YP

I first came across Outsider YP with 2017’s deeply haunting ‘Saddest Day’ - and have been a fan ever since. Hurt is the newest release from the artist; which features an earth shattering pattern of 808s, uneasy synthesis with a slight sci-fi feel - with a flow that bares the artist’s soul. This is beautiful.
