So Divine! is a new vaporwave album by producer Skyline Divine, released April 9th by Adhesive Sounds. The project is light-hearted and drenched in sunny California-Retro vibes. Loosely a concept album built around an awkward teens first love experience, it’s easy to close your eyes and imagine these tracks playing out as the soundtrack to this heartwarming story.
A lonely teen is thrown into an expensive, neon pink covered world they call San Fernando Valley. It didn’t matter how much time she spent on her hair and make-up, she couldn’t find love… until today. She finally feels like she’s ‘all that… and a bag of chips!’ She couldn’t believe it! The hottest guy in the Valley noticed her and invited her to his private yacht party!
The Album is available to download via Adhesive Sounds bandcamp at the price of your choice.
Fresh from Berlin’s Avian Label is this collection of hypnotic tracks by 400PPM. Locked Grooves is a collection of experimental techno loops constructed by Shawn O’Sullivan. The release itself is 10 tracks of raw, relentless electronics, with satisfying jagged edges. I would even dare to call this a Punk interpretation of techno, with the often distorted tones buzzing from track to track, as well as the startlingly short track lengths (most tracks barely breach the 2-minute mark!).
All in all, its a breath of fresh air in the oft-over-produced techno scene. You can scoop the digital album for free now via Avians Bandcamp.
echochambers latest release is part of the label New Worlds latest cassette-tape-box-set project dropping in a few days; when they benefit is an excellent long-player of stellar beats and melodies. Blurring the line between hip-hop beat mentality and vaporwave sonics, echochamber masterfully crafts these 20 tracks into something equally addicting and satisfying. I particularly enjoy his choice of synth tones and overall mixing, all with a subtle nostalgic sci-fi tone.
You can pick up the album digitally today for only a buck! Or you can wait until the 7th when this tape along with 4 others will be available in a limited edition box-set from the label.
Cool little release from the folks over at Commercial Dreams LTD, 909 is experienced then re-imagined through the eyes and hearts of 3 other producers. Wistful and deep, though short this release is a wonder to behold.
