Audible Life Stream, by Synkretic

Audible Life Stream is a new full-length album from multidisciplinary musician and artist Synkretic, brought to us by Megatape Records.

ALS is a brave yet playful collection of tracks. Embracing experimental electronic exploration, the sounds swirl from distorted acid breaks into lofi ambience with acrobatic ease.

Tracks like Nach Jahreziet embrace this lush majestic side like a cozy hug. The rest of the album tends to settle into a nook somewhere between chiptune footwork and progressive trip-hop.

Hinting at braindance with a subtle energy that seems to be bubbling, waiting to explode – Synkretic does a magnificent job keeping things under control, like a surfer taming a rogue wave.

Even at its most chaotic – ALS manages to be incredibly listenable. Quite an impressive accomplishment when utilizing so many unique rhythms and progressions. Structure can easily break down into unmanageable and tangled walls of noise, but what we hear here is true controlled chaos.

Big recommendation on this one – if you agree, do a deep dive on Synkretic to enjoy other creations, both visual and musical. The record is out now both digitally and on Cassette.

Molinos, by Lisergishnu

Molinos is the newest album from Chilean Beat Producer Lisergishnu (see w/ ATSU), and boy is it a banger!

Inspired by his home city of Villa Alemana, the project is packed with different genres and styles stretched out over the 8 tracks, ranging from chillhop to hectic footwork. Regardless the genre, the beats are dense and interesting, with layers of lush synths and rhythmically interesting percussion. You can download the album via Elemental 97!

POLYCHROMATIC COMPILER, by VAPERROR

Londons Dream Catalogue is responsible for yet another vaporwave masterpiece. This lengthy project from Vaperror is drenched in nostalgia and retro vibes. While this is a fairly traditional take on vaporwave, this is an incredibly listenable album, often times finding footing in addictive groves and melody structures. There is plenty of variety in the tracks as well, everything from future funk to plunderphonic noise-mash. The album is available to download at your chosen price, as well as a limited edition cassette tape for purchase!

Wasabi Tapes brings us this twisted trip, YamaGucci. A unique hybrid of juke rhythms and spontaneous noise-glitches. Not for the timid or meek, these 12 tracks meander chaotically between order and disorder.

Favorite track:  7. Like Okinawa! Sea Tsunoshim
