Aurora Borealis is a selection of experimental gems that made our week! Close your eyes, and enter another galaxy of sound with our amazing selection! This week, we will dance under the stars as our playlist features new tracks from Ian William Craig, Celadon City, Deep Dark Blue, Tourist and Lil Silva, Synkro and Sven Weisemann, SQRD, Deep Shoq & Kotryna and Close Counters, Mickey Pearce, Nkisi, emma and DBM!
This week, let’s start Aurora Borealis with “A Single Hope” which is taken from “Centres”, the new LP from Vancouver-based vocalist and ambient composer Ian William Craig.
Then, 21-year-old producer Celadon City offers you the beautiful synth-organic “Sandbox” as a free download. The hypnosis of Tourist getting remixed by Lil Silva can then happen on the spatial odyssey “Run”.
If you like Röyksopp or Sigur Rós, you will be delighted by Los Angeles’ Deep Dark Blue. Their track “Atoms” is an enchanting slowburn, between post-rock and electronica. You can read more about it there!
The Belgian label Apollo, which was founded in 1992 as the Ambient division of iconic R&S Records, recently shared the remix of Synkro’s “Your Heart” by Sven Weisemann. It’s 13 minutes of pure magic!
>SQRD proposes the emotional “Gold”, which is the title track from his upcoming EP, out 22 July on Fresh Milk. The work and effects on the vocals are simply stunning and all the details that the artist placed throughout the track are amazing!
The bewitchment keeps on working with Mickey Pearce‘s in-a-trance “Polyester”. And when the fresh-faced duo from Close Counters remixes Lithuanian artists Deep Shoq and Kotryna, the result is a weird and fascinating future bass soulful UFO!
Nkisi enables us to speed up with a futuristic chaos of drums and bleeps that compose the remix of Mory Kanté‘s classics “Yeke Yeke”. Emma is cool, even if she totally does random stuff on her computer track “acid reflex.” Be ready to tremble with the massive basses! Finally, we close this selection with DBM, a duo that features Deadboy and Murlo. Their debut “Halo” is an alternative dance banger headed by crazy basses and screaming synths! Don’t be surprised to see extra-terrestrials on the dancefloor!
Here is the whole playlist. Don’t forget to like and share it! It’s also available on Spotify!
