British producer Shadient brings to life dark places, long shadows and sharp edges with a new single “Abberate”, the first glimpse of his upcoming four-track ‘Divide’ EP set for a release on NGHTMRE & SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations in April. Grimy synths that build into mechanical, distorted basslines of “Abberate” make this premier release a shining example of Shadient’s blend of industrial, minimal electronica that fuses elements of techno, bass, and big beat sounds. His music evokes images of raves at the wee hours, at once primal and extraterrestrial.

“Abberate” is the first single off my upcoming EP, ‘Divide,’ with Gud Vibrations. My primary focus with this entire release was inspired by the idea of delving into one’s nostalgia and to explore the first pieces of dance music I ever heard. With that in mind, the music on this EP is heavily inspired by the likes of Afx, Squarepusher, old braindance stuff, with a lot of big beat like The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers. It felt very natural to be writing music like this as the influence all originate from my country (The UK). I’m incredibly excited to have this EP coming out and glad to have it be on Gud Vibrations!” – Shadient

Since his invention in 2015, Shadient has been pushing the boundaries of electronic music. “From the get-go, it was this world of ideas I had rushing into my head of metallic and industrial imagery, dark visual aspects and noise and bass leaning music,” he says. “Some of my more primary influences initially were Gesaffelstein, Boys Noize, and Aphex Twin. Very minimalistic and dark European techno artists, but I always felt that palette could be explored more musically.” Shadient’s forward-thinking approach to production has earned him loyal support from artists like Porter Robinson, who has also become a good friend and even once gave Shadient $3000 to purchase a laptop so he could finish his album. Shadient’s recent releases “COLLIDER,” “winter=reality,” and “Lotus” were signed to Mat Zo’s label Mad Zoo; he’s also done official remixes for RL Grime, The M Machine and The Mary Nixons (The Knocks & Mat Zo’s project). Stay tuned for Shadient’s next single and “Divide” EP coming out soon on NGHTMRE & SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations!

Published

Sonic Radiation - Roentgen
Sonic Radiation
shares his electronic jam, “Roentgen” for your listening pleasure. The inspiration behind this energetic track comes from Sci-Fi films. Within seconds, its progressive nature reveals a futuristic-like atmosphere. To deliver such forward-thinking rhythms he lays out authenticity above all else. Not to mention, you can tell he has a strong vision of tomorrow’s music.

Modern and experimental are probably the best words to describe the style of this rising Dallas-based producer. Likewise, his groovy outer-space synths are integrated with almost all of his releases. According to the artist himself, the illusion of creating beats helped him to get through hard times while recovering from a severe spinal cord injury. At present, Todd Last (given name) is here to represent the next frontier of Electronica.

If “Roentgen” isn’t an ode to Star Wars, then I don’t know what it is. For sure, his work never fails to hold interest. Just close your eyes and imagine exploring an infinite number of galaxies via these innovative soundscapes down here.

“I think all my songs try to grab you by the ear. I hope each one takes you on a different journey through time and space. This track really reflects my skill level and life at the time.” – Sonic Radiation

Published

relaxing music to listen to
Florida-based composer Donna O. Raphael releases “Chill Mood”. In brief, this is relaxing music to listen to. What’s more, her creative process revolves around musical improvisation. She started playing around with drum patterns, and a mix of Hip-Hop/Electronica elements. Subsequently, she obtained something more chilled out than usual.

Of course, this piece is still recognizable by her signature instrumental style. The interesting thing is that the laidback feel to it and the spacey atmospherics complement each other perfectly. According to the artist herself, these soothing sounds came out spontaneously. Plus, the whole tune will literally lift your spirit, as she uses her keyboard really nicely too. Trust me, this is the kind of music that makes you feel better straight away. I wish it was a bit longer though. Anyway, close your eyes as you listen to this and picture a peaceful place you want to be in.

If you think it’s time to relax your mind from stress and everyday problems, stream in full “Chill Mood” on SoundCloud above.

Jolynn J Chin
never fails to impress every time she plays the keys. Listen to her latest single “7 Rings Sonata” which is a piano cover of Ariana Grande’s recent Pop hit. It consists of a crossover paired with Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”, featuring the famous broken chords theme in the third movement and the main theme from the first movement. As a matter of fact, this contemporary cut is also a reinterpretation of “My Favorite Things” by Rodgers and Hammerstein. The classic track was part of a Broadway production from 1959.

On this occasion, Jolynn will dazzle you with this beautiful piece of Sonata art. Sincerely, I can’t figure out how fast she moves her fingers in order to obtain such stunning quality. Add to this, mellow electronic beats, which evoke an air of modernity to the whole composition. Definitely, her music transcends genres, while anchoring to creativeness.

On a side note, the award-winning pianist has announced the release of a debut full-length album for 2021. With regard to details, her forthcoming project has an experimental and personal approach. In short, this means fewer covers and more original arrangements. As it was expected, her recent work has been written during lockdown and will feature exclusive collaborations as well.

Donna O. Raphael
Who said instrumental music had to be boring? Composer Donna O. Raphael shows the opposite with her fresh upbeat and fun track “Light Show”. Over the years, the multi-instrumentalist female artist has garnered several distinctions. With a Bachelor’s degree in Recording Arts, Donna has won mix competitions and has been awarded for her audio file management skills. Moreover, she entered the Top 25 list of the highest-scoring indie artists in 2018 via Music Connection.

The former GRAMMY U member based in Florida is proud of her Caribbean heritage. Indeed, you can tell she has worked her magic with tropical-esque elements on the sound design of “Light Show”. As a result, originality is her stamp of excellence. At the end of the day, this is what really counts, being creative at all costs. Seamlessly blending steel drums, marimba, piano keys, and modern electronic beats, Donna showcases an eclectic variety of rhythms hard to imitate.

Dreams and dedication are a powerful combination, and that’s why she’s working hard to get her rich compositions placed in films, TV shows, and commercials. Besides Electronica, she’s also into Pop, World Classical, and Orchestral genres. The Dominica-born composer has set the standard high with this release, so you can hope to see some interesting things from her later this year.
