Beyond Boundaries is a 10-track playlist aiming to feature 10 “out-of-the-box”, outstanding gems! Not exactly unclassified, but certainly unique and uncommon.
“Sound Explorer”: Christos Doukakis
(indie pop, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: A meditative, psychedelic indie genre-fluid taster from Sound Science’s upcoming second album. We call this “future pop”
(dark ambient, drone)
Quick pitch: A desolate, dark ambient Magnum Opus by Tristan Welch from the album ‘Temporary Preservation’. No easy way out!
(instrumental hip-hop, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: A twisted instrumental hip-hop treat, which begins upbeat and bouncy but takes a drastic and dark turn….
Quick pitch: A track by North Londoner Rubik, that represents the seal returning safely back to the sea and is composed to resemble the end music of old computer games. Neoclassical meets chiptune with environmental sensitivity….
(drone, ethereal pop)
Quick pitch: An original electronic music composition featuring an entrancing vocal drone from Julianna Barwick, part of a genre-bending compilation you may find here.
(experimental electronic, synthwave)
Quick pitch: Colombia-born Bogotá-raised musician Gabriela Jimeno, aka Ela Minus and her participation in ‘Explorations in Analog Synthesis‘. The propulsive buzzing Moog synth will make your day!
Quick pitch: Outstanding avant-jazz by Louisville-based musician Noah Barker, and his artist moniker Noisebody. Accompanied with a trippy video by Kiah Celeste and Greg Sheppard…
(progressive folk, ethnic music)
Quick pitch: ‘Chains’ opens with the Bulgarian folk song ‘I Mori Majka Jana’, which translates to “Mother Yana [a pagan goddess] is Tired”. It is a homage to the musical heritage that Alien Grace is often inspired by. Progressive folk with ethnic elements at its best!
(noise rock, glitch)
Quick pitch: A frenzy, noise rock-glitch experiment about capitalist realism , the current social crisis and the effect wars has on soldiers….
(experimental electronic, instrumental hip-hop)
Quick pitch: A tune that feels like a shred of forgotten freedom in a near future dystopia. A SciFi LoFi blip of pattern and discord.
