Tales From the Flowers EP

chillwave lofi orchestral piano

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...

Nascens

chiptune dubstep house synthwave

Nascens

"Synthwave, chiptune, and house skillfully fused together and set in a cyber punk city-scape." That all sounds very dope and alluring but when executed it is often a cheesy, unsatisfying, disingenuousness dog turd that only vaguley attempts to authentically re-create the retro '80s hardware vibe. This EP is not that! The latest release form Swedish producer meganeko is a 9 song full-length titled "Eclipse" that dropped earlier this year. The songs are not simply an application of tried and tested formula. Every synth line, drum sound, and change up is deliberate. This is an attempt to advance the sound as a whole.+ It's a little...

future house kawaii kawaii bass pop vocaloid

OMOIDE BASSは未来に繋がらない

Brimming with all the kawaii bass staples like orchestral sections, adorable sound effects and of coarse that pulsating bass synth but amamori P AKA 雨漏り P brings a lot of fresh ideas to the table with this, their latest EP "OMOIDE BASSは未来に繋がらない". This is their second EP to have dropped in 2020 along with "POP'n Hate" which was released at the end of January. They have also had their work appear on the soundtracks to several rhythm games.  The first half of "OMOIDE BASSは未来に繋がらない" is essentially kawaii vocaloid bedroom pop, drawing clear influence from the city pop sound.  Many of the songs later in the...

Holiday Girl

chiptune cute electronic jazz kawaii

Holiday Girl

"Holiday Girl" by Kshiraki is a soundtrack to the 'chillest Mode 7 SNES racing game' never made. These nine tracks are perfect for staring out of a window and daydreaming. Kshiraki is an electronic artist from Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan with a sassy, sophisticated sound and a charming back catalogue. This is some sunny afternoon pack-a-picnic-and-hold-hands-with-your-homies type shit. Applying jazz fundamentals to chiptune compositions has always been a winning formula. The precise and deliberate constraints in which tracker music is made make riffing on a square wave inherently interesting. Favourite tracks: "Morning Sun" and "Train Travel".  FFO: Derris-Kharlan, Keiji Tamagishi and Elektrobear.  Holiday Girl by KshirakiFind more of their music below!  kshiraki2.bandcamp.com
