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
(drone, ethereal, neoclassical)
Quick pitch: Nebno plays with the boundaries of reality and the unconscious and creates its own universe that invites to explore. A place characterized by ethereal sounds, dark textures and deep emotions. The gentle voice brings lightness and intimacy. Infinite trip….
Nora Lilith x M-Cubed
(experimental electronic, indie r&b)
Quick pitch: Exuding an exquisite, ethereal and alluring darkness ‘Misfed’ is the alternative, genre-less new single from recent Majestic Casual signee Nora Lilith.
(experimental electronic, instrumental hip-hop, lo-fi house)
Quick pitch: An uncommon blend of lo-fi house, experimental electronic and instrumental hip-hop, combined with godlike melodies… “Shaq attack”!
(art rock, post punk)
Quick pitch: The idea for the music came from a guitar riff which was fed to an AI program that produced new material, which was sampled and arranged into a song by Assaf and Nethaniel. Welcome to the ‘twisted’ sonic universe of EGONX!
(idm, ambient techno, glitch)
Quick pitch: This odd beast sounds like Autechre on acid… Soft ambient pads and textures, gradually increase to a glitchy IDM, technoish track, with intrincate rhythms and deep textures.
(Feat. Maja Bader)
(crossover classical, operatic, nu jazz)
Quick pitch: A transcendent, highly atmospheric, operatic single, with a stunning vocal performance by the soprano Maja Bader.
(blues, progressive rock)
Quick pitch: John Byrne is a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist hailing from Liverpool and his latest release is an outstanding, instrumental blues/progressive rock treasure!
Me, I’m Counting
(idm, kraut rock)
Quick pitch: North Carolina electronic artist Nick Williams goes by the moniker of Me, I’m Counting. Williams utilizes hardware samplers and analog synths to craft a psychedelic blend of techno/electronica and krautrock. “Wave Age” is the first taste of his forthcoming debut EP MACAU.
(epic music, neoclassical, ‘wave’)
Quick pitch: Inspired by composers like Hans Zimmer or Junkie XL, Florian Brunner created a universe mixing strange sounds, science fiction, with classical voices and instruments like strings. The result is a unique piece, poetic, intense and energetic.
(lo-fi rock, art pop, noise pop)
Quick pitch: A soundtrack to the most bizarre, detailed dreams you’ll have. Preferably after returning home from a late night Waffle House adventure.
