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:

Chill-Glitch: Messy & The Gang – Dream Designer

Well, another artist that has been featured here before with No Surrender and his album A New Principle, Messy & The Gang is back with a new single Dream Designer.

The track has been produced, mixed and mastered at FunkHaus Studios,  Berlin. It has been produced by analog synths, VSTs and a modular system to glitch the sounds of the drum.

The track is a new feature of our Spotify Playlist Synths of Eden:


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.

Editorial/Disclaimer: Synths of Eden Recent Inactivity and Getting Back on Track, an Amsterdam based blog

Disclaimer: I have moved from Rotterdam to Amsterdam in the past week, so I have been very busy and AFK for a long time to keep with regular posts. Sorry for all those e-mails not answered or inactive days in Submithub, plus everybody who sent me tracks and that were expired, I saved all of them for later. Also, besides the blog I have been engaged in a regular job in Amsterdam, so things have been hard. 

However, time to get back on track! So I expect to be coming back with daily posts and better content, not just everyday posting random nice new releases and basic music curating them, but trying to diversify the content and come back with old things I listen and not being so much limited to the electronic music genre or to music being composed by synthesizers, but aiming to go beyond that as much as possible.  I realised the blog has become too mechanic, so it needs to grow, expand and not be limited to me Lucas Pascholatti as editor and main poster of the blog, as I had some help on the last past weeks (Thanks Wallace).

So, for all those who wanna collaborate with the blog, I’m open for it, just write me and we can discuss all the possibilities!

For Submithub, I’m currently active and there is a big queue of 20something approved releases to be featured here, so I will be picky with new submissions, as much as by e-mail. Sorry I can’t answer everybody!

Godspeed Synths of Eden in Amsterdam!

IDM: Danny Playamaqui – Turmeric

After some post of downtempo and chill beatmakers, now it’s time to dive again into more experimental tracks. So here we have Danny Playamaqui and Tumeric. This track is the combination of nice chords and glitchy beats, in constant repetition, from beginning to the end, with changes throughout the sound, in a fast tempo. A song that doesn’t have breaks, so expect acid aggressive bass, beats with synthesized sounds. Not the chillest work you listen here.

Artwork by Wou-Wou & The Wormlin.  Danny Playamaqui is an artists from Barcelona. There is also a Bandcamp page with several supporters. The track is part of an album called VA (Valentino Arco) with 18 tracks.

The track will be featured in our playlist Synths of Eden.
