Recommend some dreamy electronic music (ideally with vocals)


#1

Been binging on Nicolas Jaar/Darkside and dug out that Vondelpark record from a few years back. Any strong recommendations for the dreamier/spacier side of dance/electronic/ambient etc…

Bowery Electric - Freedom Fighter

Definitely try the Kiasmos album. It sounds exactly how you’d expect an ambient house record jointly made by Olafur Arnalds to sound.

That album in particular borrows quite a bit from Jon Hopkins…

And then I guess if you’re looking for more vocal-based work, the only album released by Holy Other is still exceptional


#4

A must from earlier this year.


#5

The First Wave by Somadrone. Gorgeous, gorgeous album.


#6

Thanks for the effort! Kiasmos sounds decent on first listen. Will try the others after a further delve.


#7

no vocals, but still:


#8

Ah i think i had this queued up to listen to at some point and totally forgot. Thanks!


#9

Had a quick glance and sounds promising…thanks


#10

Ah this is good!


#11

Moderat’s 3 albums are amazing, maybe also Andy Stott, Mark Pritchard, Caribou, Baths…


#12

Trentemøller too - a huge influence on Nico


#13

Much prefer their pre Lushlife output. Beat is a masterpiece.


#14

White Poppy uses quite a lot of guitar, but it’s quite electronic too:

And you must have tried Quique era Seefeel right?


#15

#16

Bought that seefeel album about 10 years ago and never really grabbed me. Will see if i still have it


#17

#18

Nicolas Jaar has sited this guy as an influence:


#19

As far as electronic with vocals go I quite like Samaris. Silkigranger is better then their new one but the single gives you an idea of what sort of music it is:

This is great from this year
