Forest Robots’ first album examines the wonders of nature through music. ‘Supermoon Moonlight, Pt. One’, was born after the LA composer explored the landscapes at Sierra Nevada. According to the artist, this record makes a call to spend more time outdoors, and it’s especially dedicated to his daughter. Furthermore, If I am not mistaken, he features some elements of classical music in conjunction with pure Electronica. In addition, the song titles seem to be taken from a very poetic world that is correlated with the album name. This turns out to be a fantasy story in the midst of nature but there are no vocals, just exquisite ambient sounds.
Following, you will enjoy my concrete analysis track-by-track.
1 – A Path Among the Woods
There’s a strong distortion that intentionally alters the smooth composition, but at the same time, this becomes a magical effect. On the other hand, the harp that can be heard throughout the song gives this intro track a touch of refinement.
2 – Times When I Know You Watch the Sky, Pt 1
The continuous chimes remind me a little of the Christmas season. Indeed, I also found myself immersed in its cinematic beat construction.
3 – Shapes Shifts in the Distant Shadows
Here we have lively electronic music and something more danceable in comparison with the previous two that are designed rather to contemplate them sitting on the sofa or lying on the bed.
4 – Last Silvers of Moonlight
A dark piano melody will captivate you from the beginning to the end. The first thing that comes to mind is a horror or thriller movie. An excellent piece that makes a contrast with the rest of the tracks of this album. I really think Forest Robots has a brilliant future as a composer of soundtracks for Hollywood movies.
5 – Silhouettes Follow the Echoes
For a moment, I felt I was floating in space. It might sound funny to say, but this song applies very well to astronauts. By all means, he creates a progressive tune and its rhythm becomes more intense little by little.
7 – Mandelbrots in Winter
At the start, I thought this was very relaxing but then the TR-808 drum beats came to provide dynamism and something vibrant to the whole song. Without this last element, this could have been a downtempo number.
8 – While Birds Dream of Dawn and Wind
Once again, I think he repeats the same synths that were used on the previous track. The only difference I found is the presence of new audio effects that seem to come from outer space.
9 – By the Stillness of the Lake
This is the shortest song from the album. With just one minute and seventeen seconds, Forest Robots designs a soundscape that feels delicate. A little melody that incites you to enter the alpha state of mind.
10 – Follow the Towers to the Moon
The album has a great ending with bright melodies. An array of colorful electronic textures are properly calibrated to leave listeners with a memorable experience.
In conclusion, if the day has you stressed or worries go round and round in your head, then ‘Supermoon Moonlight, Pt. One’ is the best free medicine. Just close your eyes and chill out with these wonderful compositions.

The JungleMico Project Surprises With Groundbreaking Music, Listen To “ROAMING”
The JungleMico Project is lead by MICO, a talented artist who aims to become China’s #1 Electronic Music Producer with his groundbreaking tunes. Not for nothing, he has been nominated several times for his albums. In 2015, his debut material ‘Roaming’ won the Asian Chinese Music Media Awards. Add to this, he has also entered the Electronica Top 200 iTunes charts. Therefore, we can clearly glimpse he has a bright future.
Without a doubt, one of MICO’s best tracks to date is “ROAMING”. It seems he and his project always opt for innovation. Surprisingly, he demonstrates creativity by merging oriental-esque sounds with a heavy dose of club music. According to the artist, inspiration came from Chinese (South-West region) songs. However, his desire to push the envelope, made his composition stand out because it feels modern due to electronic rhythms. Mixing opposite styles to perfection as it leaves you with your mouth hanging open. 😮

Synthapex’s “Gone This Night” Music Video Is A Cinematic Experience!
Plenty of eye-catching scenes, the futuristic clip of “Gone This Night” by Synthapex is a stunning work. Enlisting Arthur Lesnitsky as the Video Director, you can tell visuals are highly influenced by cyberpunk atmospheres.
Plenty of eye-catching scenes, the futuristic clip of “Gone This Night” by Synthapex is a stunning work. Enlisting Arthur Lesnitsky as the Video Director, you can tell visuals are highly influenced by cyberpunk atmospheres + CGI elements like the ones in Blade Runner or Altered Carbon. Personally, I think the storyline predicts the future as it revolves around virtual simulation as the only way to achieve self-complacency. What’s more, society is under super surveillance by advanced technologies, which can cause us to question if we are steps away from privacy extinction over the next decades.
All the above indicates the artist’s vision of tomorrow’s world is as dark as his music. Sonically, listeners can expect a sinister synth melody, rockish drums, and moody hooks. On the whole, with progressive transitions and fast-paced beats, it feels like a cinematic experience. After this, I can’t wait to hear his upcoming full-length album, which is currently in the works. Stay tuned!

ATLiens And Blanke Team Up For Sinister Single “Contact” Out Now On Downright Music
Mysterious duo ATLiens and Australian bass producer Blanke have teamed up for the hard-hitting single “Contact”, out on Downright. ATLiens have been recently sighted spreading their sinister sound around the globe as a part of their “Space Cult” tour, while Blanke has been making waves with releases on Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats label and high-profile remixes for Illenium, Marshmello, RL Grime and more. Combining both producers’ characteristic, dark sounds, “Contact” delivers menacing basslines layered with stabbing, serrating synths for an intergalactic assault to the senses. “Contact” follows ATLiens’ “IMMA,” “Exile” and “Interstellar” from 2018 as well as Blanke’s “Mixed Signals” collaboration with REZZ, setting the stage for a huge year to come for both. Catch a rare sighting of ATLiens on their remaining “Space Cult” tour dates in North America, and keep an eye out for Blanke’s live performance schedule this summer!
We may not know what their purpose on Earth is, but we do know that ATLiens have been gradually infiltrating the minds of electronic music fans since their initial releases; they first struck out with the hard-hitting “Watch Out,” featuring the Ragga Twins, and “Malfunction” with TYNAN. ATLiens then hit Earth with “Invasion,” EP full of bass-heavy, robotic tracks that caught the attention of humans around the globe. They have collaborated with Party Thieves, Bassnectar and Felmax and bolstered their stage presence with a massive worldwide tour, including their own showcase at Miami Music Week this year. Blanke is the newest artist they’ve brought into their energy field, who is best known for his remix of PNAU’s “Changa,” which was included in Billboard’s “10 Best Dance/Electronic Remixes of 2018” feature and also spent 6 months on Spotify’s Mint playlist. “Contact” is proof that ATLiens and Blanke are only getting stronger, so stay tuned for more hints from their world very soon.

Sonically Transport Yourself To The “Purple Eden” By WinstonW
WinstonW is an up-and-coming artist whose artistic name is inspired by George Orwell’s sci-fi book 1984. With this in mind, almost all of his songs have a futuristic feel and vibe. Fantastically, on first listen, his latest single “Purple Eden”, transport listeners on a sonic journey that seems to reproduce a nature scene. Of course, he delivers nocturnal atmospherics, so put your headphones on, close your eyes and feel a pleasant cinematic experience for your ears.
In my opinion, a four-minute piece that is as relaxing as walking through the woods. I can assure you this is his best melodic track off his recent EP, ‘IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH’. It is good that the full material is available to stream online via SoundCloud, YouTube or Bandcamp. Need to chill? be sure to check out first “Purple Eden” right here!
