Tales From the Flowers EP

Toronto based composer biosphere makes Studio Ghibli inspired instrumental hiphop. Their latest EP, Tales From the Flowers, features collaborative production from lofi artists Kalaido, aqualina, and ibrahim making it a great introductory release for anyone who wants to delve into the world of record crackle and soul samples. This album plays like a deligtful adventure, hand drawn and loviningly detailed. It makes me think of all the hidden little gems in the world of anime that never seem to get referenced like Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals, Origin: Spirits of the Past, Jade Cocoon: Story of the Tamamayu or Wonderful Days (Sky Blue). Tales From the Flowers will spark memories of your...

Cherry Plum

"Cherry Plum" was first prepared as a flower essence by Dr. Edward Bach in 1935, as a remedy for the intense fear of losing control of one’s mind and, if I may,  couldn't we all do with a bit of that shit right now. This cute little release was dropped in 2018 by  ahiru あひる an electronic artist from The Netherlands who specializes in downtempo, chillwave beats and piano compositions. They are a member of the "nemuri winter" sleepy beat netlabel & collective. Drift away with these six stunning tracks. Sounding like the score to and early Makoto Shinkai feature, this album is filled with...

THE MOTEL

THE MOTEL

Future soul and lofi hiphop producer Goro Kumai recently uploaded two full length releases "THE MOTEL" and "Wandering Beats Vol.1" to bandcamp. Two fully realized 13 track albums of slick and soulful instrumentals. Full of sexy and sophisticated sample work reminiscent of Souls of Mischief era beat composition. While they are both excellent releases I prefer The Motel. Beyond making music Goro does all their own visual art as well as running a music program for those looking to become proficient with an Akai MPC sampler. These calm, cool and collected songs have the potential to add a touch of normalcy to your summer....
