Derek Foreal by New York based producer M!NTis 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:
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.
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.
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.
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).
“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.

If you start to feel a vibe like Stranger Things meets funk… You are probably listening to Left & Right the new Bluestaeb’s instrumental single from the album called Everything is Always a Process. Bluestaeb lives and works in Berlin and Paris and he’s in his third solo album with the collaboration of artists such as Noah Slee, Harleighblu, and Melodiesinfonie. If you have been to Splash! or Melt festival, you have probably heard of him.
When it comes to the new generation of Hip-Hop beatmakers in Europe, you can certainly count on Bluestaeb for your playlist. He flees from the conventional, putting together the best of the old school aesthetics, a pinch of the new school and a very organic instrumentation.
“This song is a result of moving from Berlin to Paris. I was in a new environment, felt more free, and had to switch it up from all those 91bpm Hip-Hop beats.” – He said about the making of this song. – “I remember him [pianist and producer Jonathan Aréna] just playing around with the bass line for several minutes, when all of the sudden he came up with that loop you can hear in the final song.”
Speaking of playlists you can easily find a lot of Bluestaeb’s work on SoundCloud, YouTube, Spotify, so you won’t miss a beat!
Also, if you are looking for more of songs like Left & Right, you should just follow our playlist Chilling in Eden and have a blast!
It has been a while since we last posted a downtempo track following this style, but now we’re introducing Avery by Abalone (artistic name for Anders), artist from Denmark that composes “organic electronic music”. The track is part of his 6 tracks EP Beginnings that was recently released the 19th of April. This is downtempo electronic dance music to dream and dance
The EP falls into the same genre of artists such as Smok-Mon featured here before. The whole EP deserves attention, if you are a fan of this approach to electronic music, it starts with Grace, a entirely instrumental track that builds the feeling for what is coming on, while Avery works as a conclusion to what has been provided by Abalone during those more than 20min of music.
“as women we know the importance of recognising each other’s work. In the music industry you actively have to search for women to cooperate with, or you are most likely to end up with a cis-male dominated team. That is why this project was run entirely by women. The music, script, and screenplay were written by women, and it was directed by, shot and edited by women.”
With this quotation I present you Gold by Swedish band Junodef.
Junodef from Lund, Sweden, makes an unique blend of post-rock, trip-hop, highly influenced by artists such as Chelsea Wolfe, Warpaint and PJ Harvey. They started in the Swedish underground scene and then relocated to London. The fact that they moved to London also impacted their sound, making them experiment even further with electronic music, such as trip-hop.
Their debut album Oceans came out in 2017, since then they’ve been busy with a big range of projects for 2018. Their track ‘Gold’ came out in Sweden with a thrilling music video, Romain Gavras style of violence, but a bit more mellow.
