Our chill electronic playlist Chilling in Eden now present you Salvatore Cordova, from Chicago (USA) and his track Yuumei, from The Mountain (EP).
Salvatore Córdova’s truly masterful instrumentation mixes traditional guitar riffs, keys and percussion with deep electronic beats and danceable rhythms.
It’s soft, the usual downtempo type of track, it’s a good one for a lounge DJ Mix while being a good fit for an introspective and meditative time with a headphone. The Mountains is highly recommendable for fans of downtempo electronic music.
i knew is a track by sad face. It has been officially released on the 23rd of November, part of an EP called ok bye. Although the thematic can look depressing, including the voice sampling on the tracks themselves, besides the titles. The tracks are awesome, there’s a big energy in i knew, within all the sadness you can reach out to your inner energy and emerge, just like sad face.
The EP is also available in Bandcamp.

Cell, by Berlin based artist GRÜN GLAS, is those downtempo tracks that are on the edge with techno, which means it fits the headphone vibe on an introspective music discovery as much as with the dance floor, due to its groove. Cell has been released as a single yesterday, 25th of December. You can also find Cell available to purchase on Bandcamp.

“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.

Tonight, by London based producer Little People, is a powerful track, full of rhythmic FMish tunes, nothing more appropriate for a nocturnal mood. Downtempo, quiet slow, not the best fit for the usual club mix, but it’s highly suitable for a chill DJ Set, the ideal company for some drinking or smoking with some friends at night. The bass is something more subtle, with a short decay, pizzicato like. However, the track progresses, turning to something more energetic before fading out in the same way as it started. The track provides us several impressive synth tunes during its arrangement, from standard to experimental sound designs.

Speak by Australian duo PINES (Adam Dormand and James Kenneally) is track highly suitable for a deep house kind of DJ Set. Those female vocals, with claps intertwined by four on the floor kicks and hi hats marking the tempo. With carrying with it a pop and dance music appeal, without clichés. That style of dance you can actually appreciate the instrumentals. It has been released independently in the second of November, reaching the count of more than 57 thousand of listeners in less than a month. Impressive.

There’s a delicate, uplifting yet obscure style of electronic music coming from Sweden, just like Smok-Mon featured here earlier in September. We now explore the sounds of Conformal, that released his Tjörveln EP, with special attention to Tåglek, embedded here. Primal sound design, that shares many similarities with the work of Smok-Mon too, using detuned synthesized sounds as rhythm.
Conformal is a DJ/producer based in Stockholm that releases his music by his own label Lima Express. Tåglek has been added to our Spotify playlist Synths of Eden:
Ethiopian artist based in USA Saba Abraha has been featured in Synths of Eden with Pathway, in April, mixing R&B with electronic downtempo. Now she’s back with Utopia, a track that follows the same mood, but with much more intensity and allowing herself to dig even deeper into the experimentalism of electronic music. The track is part of her recently released EP Sweet Mirage.
