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
A must from earlier this year.
The First Wave by Somadrone. Gorgeous, gorgeous album.
Thanks for the effort! Kiasmos sounds decent on first listen. Will try the others after a further delve.
no vocals, but still:
Ah i think i had this queued up to listen to at some point and totally forgot. Thanks!
Had a quick glance and sounds promising…thanks
Ah this is good!
Moderat’s 3 albums are amazing, maybe also Andy Stott, Mark Pritchard, Caribou, Baths…
Trentemøller too - a huge influence on Nico
Much prefer their pre Lushlife output. Beat is a masterpiece.
White Poppy uses quite a lot of guitar, but it’s quite electronic too:
And you must have tried Quique era Seefeel right?
Bought that seefeel album about 10 years ago and never really grabbed me. Will see if i still have it
Nicolas Jaar has sited this guy as an influence:
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
