Spotify Playlist – 90s Metal: Scott Burns (Producer) – Best Of

90s metal is not the usual style covered by Synths of Eden, but it’s a style of fundamental importance in the recent music history, especially the work of some great bands and producers that are worth being shared.

So here’s a playlist edited by LPascolatti (this blog’s editor) for all those metalheads that eventually follow/read our blog. A collection of tracks that were part of albums produced by Scott Burns during the 90s, including classics from Death, Sepultura, Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Obituary and others.

Synths of Techno: TaxKiller – FK Taxes

Synths of Techno newest feature is FK Taxes from German producer TaxKiller. Amazing techno, aggressive, full of energy, with those dark-quite-distorted voices speaking in the background, as much as those long synth lines that embellish the rhythm. A great track for the pinnacle of a DJ Set. It has been released 24th August by Baroque Records.

New Playlist: Synths of Techno

Synths of Eden new techno playlist. Classic techno, new techno, heterodox techno, traditional techno, all techno.

At first we were mainly posting techno tracks in Synths of Eden playlist, but I guess techno is such a particular style of electronic music that it deserves a playlist just for itself. The idea was to mix different influences of techno, some more contemporary, others more unconventional or “heterodox”, as much as some progressive techno, minimal or more old school techno, everything when it comes to techno is included. As usual, 50 tracks, that will be updated each new techno track or artist we feature on the blog, which means it’s a rotative playlist.

Submissions are more than welcome!

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:

Dub Techno: TTilawok – Rooted

Rooted was released this 25th of May by TTilawok, part of the album Into Memory (Bandcamp), another singular techno track, surely not the one you’ll listen in your underground local techno club. TTilawok calls it dub techno in his metadata, not without a purpose, as this track mixes techno with ethereal synth pads. The track, as much as for the whole album itself, is highly composed by danceable chord progressions, rhythms and arpeggiated sequences.  It has been recorded in EMS (Elektronmusikstudion), Stockholm, during the years of 2016/2017. Besides being released digitally it is also being distributed in cassettes, that can be ordered by Bandcamp as well.

The album does not limit itself to techno, also trespassing the fields of house, acid, dub, ambient and downbeat. Rooted is being featured is our Spotify Playlist Synths of Eden.

Bio: TTilawok is a photographer and electronic music producer based in Stockholm, Sweden. His photography utilizes double exposure to create unique scenes from both natural and human born landscapes. His musical style ranges from deep house and techno to lo-fi, minimal, and ambient. Combining samples, synthesis, and analog drum machines, he traverses the realms of acid, ambient, low-fi, and downbeat.

Nu-Breaks: Exo Moda – Peyote in the Desert (ft. JoyAimee)

Having some peyote from the desert should not be a easy experience, probably enlightening, but for sure it will not be by the easy way. Dutch producer Exo Moda before releasing Noise Core 2000 produced in the best blend with drum and bass, Peyote in the Desert, featuring the energetic vocals from JoyAimee. As mentioned previously here in this blog, if you like artists such as Prodigy, you’ll like the works of Exo Moda, for sure. Though Exo Moda himself has a more dance and hip-hop styles, blending other genres with the more heavy old school UK drum and bass style.

Plus, another great artwork for a single. As mentioned earlier, his aim is to make music “with hallucinatory visuals that will make you want to gouge your eyes out”.

Exo Moda is currently working in his debut album.

His newest release Vulture’s Eye has been just and is being featured in our Spotify playlist, Synths of Eden, together with Peyote in the Desert.

Chill Downtempo: Outbanders – Emergent Patterns

Imagined as a surrealistic descent into an abstract alternate universe, Emergent Patterns is a small collection of dark, celestial electronic instrumentals that evokes imagery of ethereal and arcane ancient geometries.

New release from Outbanders Austin, Texas duo composed by Zak Angelle and Brandon Valosek. The release is available in Bandcamp and in Spotify, the second track Topograppler has just been featured in our chill playlist Chilling in Eden. Embedded below. Another release with an amazing artwork besides the tracks. This cover totally makes sense when you think about the word topograppler and possible geographic references to it.

According to Outbanders, Emergent Patterns begins with a shimmering crescendo of reverb-drenched synth lines backed by glitched-out drums in Dawnburst, followed by the driving rhythms of the polymetric jam Topograppler. Emergent Patterns finishes with the dreamy, smeared-out chill vibes of the melancholic final track Sacred Lines Spread Sacred Lies.
