Souncloud Playlist: Synths of Eden – June/July

Most of the tracks featured by Synths of Eden during June and July of 2018. A considerable diversity of genres and styles one after the other. A discovery playlist. So, don’t expect a cohesive playlist. But a diverse and highly creative mix.

As the month of June had fewer number of submissions, this month’s Soundcloud Playlist came out together with the July tracks featured by Synths of Eden. In total, 42 tracks with all the different content shared by the blog.

 

New Black Metal: Deafheaven – Canary Yellow/Honeycomb (2018)

When I was a young fan of music and started to go deeper in the world of metal, I was around 14/15 years old, by that time, followed by a stereotype, I thought that black metal was a crap, with adults using make up and shouting things about the devil.

Until I grew up, and started to go seriously deeper on it, since the basics like Venon, Cradle of Filth, to the best current bands that released more melodic material like Alcest, Lantlos, Neurosis, Altar of Plagues, Chelsea Wolf, Trees of Eternity, just to cite a few.

All with their peculiarities, it shows that black metal can be something amazing, deep, dark, above everything really pleasant to listen, full of colours, drums with double kicks, followed by guitar riffs and a dark guttural vocals. That are contrasted with moments of calm guitars riffs in the bridge, modulated, containing an atmospheric feeling at the same time.  Combined with reminiscences of old school thrash metal, emphasised by the riffs, that prove black metal, or what has been attributed to be post-black metal, to be more than the stereotype of face paint. But also being great contemporary music. In general, all of them push the boundaries to post-rock, such as Sygur Rós and Mogwai, for instance.

Deafheaven and their last two singles Canary Yellow and Honeycomb have been reposted by Synths of Eden in Soundcloud. This band comes from San Francisco, California and is currently on tour around USA and coming to Europe soon. Their three albums are more than recommended. According to interviews given by the band, they don’t consider themselves to be a post-black metal band, because “it has been done 10 years before they were a band”.

Update:

One day after this post, 13th July, the full album has been released, called Ordinary Corrupt Human Love:

Crossover Tech-House: M!NT – Derek Foreal

Derek Foreal by New York based producer M!NT is a track that sounds like tech-house but dives in the bridge sections with use of vocals, audio samples yet being highly instrumental. It crosses genres at some points, with many hip-hop references, that is easily explained by M!NT’s latest productions, that was hip-hop and beats. Derek Foreal has been released by Outside In Records.

You can check M!NT‘s Bandcamp page for his earliest works.  The track has been featured in our Spotify playlist Synths of Eden:

Downtempo Funk: RJ Pasin – Sentience (Soundcloud)

As I always mention here in my reviews on Synths of Eden, there are no boundaries to music creation. If you wanna make same amazing and call it ‘downtempo funk’ you can do it, freedom of creation can allow you to do many magic thinks. In this case, RJ Pasin with Sentience gives us a 3:00 minutes of jam in different instruments, the track has amazing drums and several solos in sequences, including organ and synths, something that bring us back to mind artists like Emerson Lake and Palmer, or old style progressive rock.  Definitely, RJ Pasin is a multi instrumentalist. I recommend listening to RJ Pasin’s soundcloud profile for  other tracks of the kind.

Soundcloud May Playlist

As usual, we are sharing a Soundcloud playlist with most of the tracks featured by Synths of Eden during the month of May. Not the busiest month for the blog, as mentioned in our last Editorial/Disclaimer, but for sure full of new ideas and motivation to make this blog something nice for music fans all around the globe.

In total we have 32 track from many varied genres covered here, from more experimental to more pop tracks.

Hope you all enjoy!

Techno: Psychopanda – Nothingness (Free Download)

Nothingness is techno track deserves respect, available for free download, Psychopanda, from India gives us a track rich in sound, with glitchy bass, psycho melodies, that does justice to its cute artist name. The track has almost 8 minutes but don’t expect the usual repetitive techno style, but an ever changing one, without losing its tune and all the feelings it provides. In his soundcloud page you can also find tracks such as Hide and Seek and Contact Made, both tracks also available as free download.

According to Psychopanda, he’s mostly inspired by Jon Hopkins‘ sound.

Soundcloud IDM: ABSTe – Acid Disorder

Well, if the acid kicks in, don’t expect order. Not sure what ABSTe wanted to express with his track Acid Disorder, if it’s about lysergic experiences, the track tries to show what could be an adventure of acid and its effects by the means synths, thus the natural disorder, that starts, grows and ends after 2 minutes and a half of climax.

The track is part of an EP called Anonymous Delivery and it’s available in Soundcloud (as embedded).

 

Pre-Release: Little Sain✚ – Y0UR G0D

“You are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and your fellowship sacrifices and on your joyous occasions, your appointed festivals, and the beginning of each of your months. They will serve as a reminder for you before your God: I am the LORD your God.”

For a blog called Synths of Eden, the use of religious references for satirical purposes isn’t anything new. Little Saint, producer from UK, will officially release Y0UR G0D on digital streaming platforms this 31th May by Halogram Records. This is a 10 minutes track with use of audio samples, rhythms and synthesizers, in a dark atmosphere, old school dubstep style, a bit like Skream! (2006).

Artwork was made by English Artist Dr. Fuckjoy. The track will be released in Little saint’s album 1010. There are 10 different alternate versions for this track, which will be all released.
