Breaking Waves: Fyoomz & “Invisible Touch”

"Wave exists in the collective subconscious of every avid electronic music fan. People who take an active interest in Wave are among those same fans, except they’re awake." — Donald // Fyoomz 🌊🌊🌊 (@fyoomz) April 12, 2022Twitter It was my lucky day on Tuesday. When I woke up, feeling well enough to write, I found a new Fyoomz drop--all at once!! And let me tell you—“Invisible Touch” is a whole vibe. It kept me going literally all day. You should check it out, especially if you need an intense pick-me-up. It's all that and more. https://open.spotify.com/album/2F0YZkPricVTNeeBYydGd3 https://twitter.com/fyoomz/status/1534179687089557505 Describing the track on SoundCloud, Fyoomz says, “This is my take on a classic trance tune from Bobina and Ferry Cors...

RRGH Vol 4: Celebrating Women & Femmes in Music

My dear readers, it's time for me be completely honest with you: It's a bit embarrassing to admit this, but when it came to International Women's Month, I froze. I thought I'd be able to put together a piece celebrating women & femmes in music in no time, but here we are. In May. Don't get me wrong--I immediately had an idea as to who I wanted to write about. Like, when I asked myself, "OK, Women's Month-- woohoo! Time to write. Best chick in music right now, go." I did have a name pop up in my head. But it felt too easy. Too immediate. So, I sat with that thought for a moment. "Why did my mind immediately jump to her?" Because her music is bomb, of course. There was no lie there. She wasn't a cop-out. I absolutely wanted to celebrate her during women's month, ...

Breaking Waves: Just Connor & “Hyperstrike”

Considering it has been almost exactly a year to the day since I first spoke with Just Connor about his music, I think it's only right to do this first issue of Breaking Waves about him... Especially since today is the day that the first Just Connor track of 2022 drops! Please go ahead and stream "Hyperstrike"-- I promise you, it will send you on a gorgeous sonic journey. It's what I've had on repeat all morning. By the time you reach the second drop, you will realize that no one does wave music quite like JC. That's what I realized a year ago, and have realized time and time again, on my "journey through wave". I say it like that because that's what this has felt like--a journey. Ever since that first conversation with JC, it has felt like I've been on a journey to discover w...

Happy 4/20… AKA Deadcrow Release Day! Stream “Solar” for Some Premio Vibes & Seriously Good Times.

If you're looking to explore new heights today, may I direct you to the perfect soundtrack? Deadcrow just released his newest track, "Solar", and it is simply fantastic. Check it out and get yourself ready for one hell of a ride and some out-of-this-world vibes. "Solar" on YouTube via UKF: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kfsu6quoXE This track is one of those IDs that was always a favorite of mine (I lost my absolute shit hearing it live at Liquid Ritual's "conference" in London just a couple weeks ago-- but more on that later), and yet I never exactly knew what song it was... And now I finally--finally--can hear it in full. And it has been on loop. I just keep going back to it; I can't help it. Meet Deadcrow, the Wave Artist Taking Ove...

[Interview]: Bandcamp Friday, The Wave Community, and… Halo? A Chat With The UK’s ‘Lo-Fi-Wave’ Producer, Seraph.

We got another BandCamp Friday gift: one of my favorite producers, Seraph., dropped a new track, "Virmire", today! In honor of this surprise, we decided to sit down and have a little chat about the state of the scene, what's next for this UK-based producer, and more. Stream "Virmire", on BandCamp, below, and read on to learn more about Seraph. Vermire by Seraph To get us started, would you please tell us just a little bit about yourself? And, if you don’t mind my asking--where did the moniker "Seraph." come from? Sure thing! My name is James. I’m a 24-year-old Music Producer from the Northeast of the UK, and I like to make sad music with even sadder guitar melodies. As for where I got the “Seraph” alias from, it’s kind of a nerdy story [laughs]. I g...

A Chat With The Young Legend, MAYKO.

"...the whole purpose of music, in my opinion, is to transport people into a place, into a feeling..." If there is any name you need to remember in 2022, it's Mayko's. You're certainly going to be seeing it everywhere soon.  You may already be familiar with Mayko through his release with Sable Valley, or perhaps you remember him from a vibe.digital podcast, or stumbled upon him another way. (If not, you can get introduced to Mayko in our “Release Radar’s Greatest Hits, Volume 3”).  Perhaps the best way to get to know him is through his own words, though, right?  Well, we were lucky enough to be able to interview Mayko about his art and artistry, what he’s learned on his journey so far–as well as what’s coming next for ‘The Young Legend’.   For y...

Release Radar’s Greatest Hits, Vol 3: 2021 Favorites & 2022’s Most Wanted (Saint Slumber, Mayko, THE HARA)

The last few months have introduced us all to some incredible music, I know. However, there are few artists who captivated me the way that Saint Slumber, Mayko & THE HARA have. Ever. So, if you take my advice at any point this year, here are three artists that I really need you to check out real quick. Trust me, it'll be well worth it. While there will be links and embeds galore for you to explore, here is a Spotify playlist with selections from all three for you to start out with: 2021's Winner: Saint Slumber's EP, how to lose your self. I’d honestly be really sad for you if you missed Saint Slumber’s late-December release last year. That is why I’m telling you about it now! :) Because how to lose your self is the best EP I heard in all ...

Hikikomori by Nick Neutronz: a Poignant Digital Soundscape for a Future None of Us Imagined.

Welcome to the year 2022. We made it. It's the future. The 2020s--the roaring 20's 2.0: flying cars edition. Or something... Well, it's not the future any of us saw coming--except, perhaps, for Nick Neutronz, through his dark & enchanting track, "Hikikomori". First released on Audius on January 4th, the track is now available for streaming everywhere. "Hikikomori" is more than just a New Year's single: it is a journey into another world, one that eerily mirrors our own. "In February of 2019 I did a dive into "Hikikomori". A year and some change later, and we were all driven inside with no sense of when we'd be outside again. This track was a fantasy, a future urban landscape where all of us were stuck to our screen, where the outside world was a hostile hustle of scarcit...
