New Electronic: Wiki Chaves – Bangkok

The original song, Bangkok, combines electronic music patterns with traditional Latin American percussions and guitar riffs. The rest of the songs are remixes from Whirling Wolf releasing artist Claus Vega, Timoti, Kaan and Thommie G, reinforcing the idea of the album as a cross path between electronic and Latin America’s music.

Featured in Synths of Eden before with Tribal, Argentinian producer Wiki Chaves is back with a new track Bangkok. As much as with Tribal, Wiki Chaves drew inspiration from his South American roots to compose the rhythm and melodies to what is his kind of electronic music. The use of string instruments is something typical of Wiki Chaves when it comes to producing his tracks, he shows his skills as a guitarist. Bangkok comes out as an EP, featuring the original mix plus other 4 remixes, including a great remix of Tribal by Timoti.

Electronic: Moran Gang – Andromedary

And every rhythm is a fire
Just want to be part of your tiles
So let us push these things aside
And start ourselves a paradigm

Capiroto Records presents you Moran Gang, from Stockholm, Sweden, and his single new single Andromedary. He provides us a delicate experimentalism, that shows the subtlety of synthesizers summed by poetic vocals. It’s etheric, starting slowly, growing, exploding with bright lead synth lines and ending gloriously, fading as a message or a blown leaf.

Moran Gang or Nathanael Saposnikoff, comes from Stockholm and generally plays in a couple of different groups and projects. He started producing solo materials under his alias (Nathanael) about 2 years ago and around the same time started to produce music for a dance performance that was more electronically oriented. Later on, he released the result of that show as Moran Gang (the EP ‘Squid Tango‘) and he is working continuously with both projects. The music for Nathanael Saposnikoff is more personal, more analogue, or indie-psych-dreamy oriented, while Moran Gang is electronic oriented, with drops of experimentation. Both projects are all produced by Nathanael throughout the whole process.

Synthwave: Alpha Chrome Yayo – The Last Stand of TJ Lazer

A synth ‘n’ shredding soundtrack to a game that never existed. ‘The Last Stand of TJ Lazer’ is a C64-inspired sonic showdown about a space cowboy going out with all guns blazing.

The track also comes with two covers from badass ’80s games. The first is ‘My Lover’, the closing credits to The Super Shinobi / Revenge of Shinobi, by the legendary Yuzo Koshiro.

The other cover is ‘Splash Wave’, originally by Hiroshi Kawaguchi and the S.S.T. Band, from 1986 high action road racing game Out Run.

First thing that came to my mind listening to The Last Stand of TJ Lazer by Alpha Chrome Yayo, producer from Belfast city, was Johann Sebastian Bach and all sorts of melodies composed by him.  Sonically, it has a big influence of chiptune, but not entirely, we can also find an electric guitar solo there, allegro, on a high BPM. The Bandcamp version embedded has two bonus tracks from Sega games, such as Shinobi.

Chilling in Eden, Dub & Downtempo: Danya Vodovoz – Fourtwenty

“Fourtwenty” is a melancholic and trippy tune from my upcoming album called “Nostalgia” where my focus was to create a sonic cinema for the mind. With its bass-heavy groove, unexpected musical elements, and expressive saxophone solo I’ve tried to recreate a mystical and psychedelic experience.

Fourtwenty is a track Danya Vodovoz’s latest album, Nostalgia. An excellent combination between old school dub and contemporary downtempo electronic music, such as trip hop. The new album has many influences in the field of more chill electronic music, but dub is omnipresent in almost all the tracks, such as Train of Thought, but there’s a big presence of tunes belonging to jazz, specially the use of keys. The last track is more progressive and lasts for 10 minutes, El Topo, chill yet psychedelic. Danya has been featured here before with a deep house track called Nautilus. If you like easy-listening and dub music, you should def take a listen to Nostalgia.
