Summer Rain, by Mikrokristal & Echo Delta


Now here is a fantastic record, courtesy of Cold Tear Records (Lithuania). Summer Rain is a phenomenal collaborative project by Mikrokristal and Echo Delta. Together they produce an impressive sound that is as rhythmic as it is fluid. The tone evokes those rain-soaked summer days, with percussion as light as raindrops and synths that wash over you entirely. It combines the emotional depth of deep ambience with trip-hop tendencies. I personally loved all the instrumentation on this album, which I would consider a master-craft of deep electronic music. The 6 track project is available via Bandcamp.

Favorite Track: 4. Snowman

Ratu, by Giriu Dvasios

Amazing album right here, a unique combination of dub-techno and Lithuanian Folk songs. The whole thing has a mysterious quality to it, perfect for a rainy day or thoughtful evening.

Silent Wilderness, by Slownoise
