#FF056: ‘eery coziness’

hey.
the solar team has gathered themselves together after a magnificent itinerary in the world of the bureaucracy of the twenty-first century.
a dull thing that each of us has to deal with, let’s say, too much? while you have to fill out documents over documents, it’s still an amazing feeling to calm down yourself by checking out the newest releases of your dearest friends, colleagues, but also pieces from foreigners that crossed our way while checking out the newest ‘ish’.
we have to admit, in the last days & weeks, we definitely did like the idea of listening to the amalgamation of jazz music with hip hop instrumentals, or basically jazzy electronica from people like ‘Flying Lotus‘ or ‘Aphex Twin‘.
while thinking about that first, u might say ‘ugh’, but give it another try, the result might be omnivorously amazing.
but before we end up ‘fan-boying’ or ‘fan-girling’, let’s skip it & start to talk about you & you. shall we? yes, we shall, article number fifty-six, say ‘hi’:

1.Hudson East – Womans Institution (AndreaLo Edit)

the first song on the list is an edit from ‘Womans Institution‘, a song by london-based artist ‘Hudson East‘. being edited by no other than one of our favorite artists ever, ‘AndreaLo‘, made the decision even easier for us.
but why? the song is all about emotions, whether when you hear the eccentric bass line or the catchy lines that are accompanyin’ the tenacious synth-composition. for those, who may not know this artist: ‘AndreaLo‘ is the new alias of the parisian beatmaker ‘Andrea‘, who has to change his name due some issues. as a restart, our dear friend provided us with a panoply of personal edits, released as a freebie extended play on his soundcloud-acc.
to describe ‘AndreaLo‘s’ style of music is quite a thing. with influences from every specific genre you can barely imagine, this young prodigy brings up beats over beats & each of them has its unique way of style.
check out the artist, get your copies of this candid present & don’t forget to say ‘hi’ to him on twitter.

2.Ida Dillan & Svani – Icy Forest

Icy forest‘ is the next song which we have featured for you on this list. we stumbled over the track while reading the mellifluous inquiry of the young-yet-aspiring netlabel ‘Cvlt Records‘. by telling us that they have recently released a new compilation on their account, we did what we had to do & checked the output. as we were listening to the provided songs, the most catchy one was the aforementioned ‘Icy Forest‘.
created by norwegian singer-producer ‘Ida Dillan‘ in collaboration of with also from the lush country in the north of europe, ‘Svani‘, you’re goin’ to listen to an instrumental that sure has to be on your list. an impeccable arrangement put in together to rivet your eardrums so tremendously that you might have to see the doctor afterwards.
bonus point: the whole compilation is for free, so do us a favor, thank these guys, follow up their path, check their tweets & be sure to check out the other interesting releases on the compilation.

3.GYVUS – Pendula

we’d like to say ‘hi’ to a new member of the solar fam: us-based artist ‘Gyvus‘. we stumbled over josh’s account around some days ago. what mostly has got our attention was the soothe output he did put out in the recent weeks. it’s something that we don’t only like to call it ‘chillhop’ – more like pithy instrumentals, with succulent synth-compositions & crisp bass lines. the same description impeccably describes the way of sound of the featured track on this list, named ‘Pendula‘. being released as a part of his ‘Floret’ extended play, you’re goin’ to get a succinct example of ‘Gyvus‘ potential. mesmerizing, catchy, there could be more words to describe the sound, but that would be redundant (haha).
we’re pleased to put this song on this list & thankful for finding this talented bloke here. shoutout to ‘Chillhop Records‘ & the mastermind behind this work: ‘Gyvus‘.

4.Shin-Ski – Behind Trees

next song & oh, it has really been a time since we featured someone from the magical place called ‘japan’. the last artist’s name was… ugh, we do not remember, which is truly a shame.
to be blunt, japanese musicians tend not to disappoint you, whether we’re talkin’ about classic, jazz or even techno. but why? let’s say, japanese people are pretty passionate when it is about something. their feeling for art is pretty unique & remarkable. it’s a diverse way of perception, a different way to show the beauty of art.
by listenin’ to this remarkable downtempo-ish piece of art named ‘Behind Trees‘ from beatmaker ‘Shin-ski‘, you’ll catch a glimpse of the way, what we described & tried to convey. ‘Shin-Ski‘, aka shinsuke, magically appeared in the world of soundcloud around two years ago. since then, this man with the special knack to convey emotions & feelings by a slight note, has gained a lot of (totally deserved) attention from the public. counting over five hundred followers on his acc, you can be definitely sure that this guy here will be not on the end of his evolvement & path. so, meanwhile be sure to get your copy of this song here & press on ‘follow’.

5.Ye. – Look@Me

last song for today is ‘look@me‘ by beatmaker ‘Ye.‘ (pronounced ‘yea’). we stumbled this artist around some moments ago. what we have found was pretty impressive to be honest: a playlist full of originals, each of them with a catchy melody & raucous-yet-terrific drum-setting.
if you’re desperately looking for futuristic beats, this beatmaker might be the right one. so, please: ‘look at Ye.‘. it is just the beginning of the career of an impressive producer, who inspires you to write music by yourself. so do what you have to do, get your copy of this gargantuan piece of art & start to listen to it all day long.

p.s.: don’t forget to say ‘thanks’ to ‘Ye.‘ by pressing ‘follow’.
p.p.s: say ‘hi’ to ‘Ye.‘ on twitter.
