Twilight Kamikaze – A Drive with Elise (2018)




  • Post-disco 
  • Alternative dance 
  • Electro pop 
  • Electronic music 
  • Experimental electro 
  • Industrial electro

Comment: first of all, this 3-notch outing starts off with the favourite format of electro for me - sultry rhythmic patterns coated with tight synthesiser-induced layers atop. Later on, the course used to turn a little bit by incorporating more ominous sonic effects and by coming near to a more static and restrained yet experimental approach. However, the final track This Void Inside used to successfully merge the tendencies of the first and the second parts of the self-titled track. It is highly galvanized and a bit shifted in its rhythmic work while manipulating with some sort of black matter to build up the result. As if drawing some rhythmic patterns from the Detroit electro scene to build it up on an (post)-industrial template. Yeah, it is convincing in a highly hypnotic way. The astounding issue is a part of the discography of Silent Flow. One of my favourite things with regard to the rhythmic patterns in 2018.

Unlimited Space Nine and Stars Sound System – Be (2018)




  • Kosmische Musik
  • Psytrance 
  • Electronic music 
  • Alternative dance 
  • Synth-pop 
  • Ambient pop 
  • Crossover

Comment: this is a split release on Unlimited Space Lab consisting of long-lasting (up to a 10 minute) compositions of such projects as Unlimited Space Nine, and Stars Sound System. More profoundly, bass frequencies and modulated synthesiser sounds propel the 4-track outing to an extent one used to have no certainty is it either an example of trance or synth-pop or ambient pop or electronic psychedelic music or EDM. Or something else at all for one's pleasure. Of course, it is the pseudo-concern because the most important aspect is that the issue is thoroughly coherent and soul-arresting. The X Shape, and Watching Secret Rats From VIIIth Dimension are the favourites of mine due to a laid-back propulsion and yet a catchy theme progression provided at the same time, and amazing keyboard pitches and rhythmic symbiosis, respectively. At times the tracks are embellished with ivory piano chords, lofty synthesiser overdrives and suggestive spoken word snippets. Very pro.

Macroform – Shining (2018)




  • Chilltronica 
  • Electronic pop 
  • Alternative 
  • Glo-fi 
  • Chillwave 
  • House pop 
  • Breaks

Comment: Macroform is a musician from Sarasota, Florida, USA. He is a musician who explores sound and experiments with a broad range of instruments including guitars, old Casio keyboards, African drums and percussion and found sounds and synthesizers. By listening to this huge, 19-notch outing it can be said he knows how to conjure up one's mood and bump up neurochemicals to optimal level. Macroform has been a prolific artist who has issued more than 40 releases during the last 12 years including 5 issues in the recent year. One may say the amount is way too much to stay at one and the same level artistically. An other one may say it is necessary to produce in a row to preserve and not forget the artistic skills. In this context the second opinion seems to be true. Of course I have not listened to all his issues but by considering the recent one has all what a very decent issue should provide. Stylistically it veers away from house-tinged piano and electric piano shuffles and catchy rhythms to serene chillwave and chilltronica-drenched glimpses and cloudless synthesised and sampled orchestrations. Macroform knows very well how psychologically manipulate the listener to cope with such a long release – from speedy delivery to slowed-down ones, from raspy facets to more floating ones. By balancing different elements with one another it is a foundation to avoid boredom. Secondly it is like a simulacrum for a listener's life. All in all, I am going to add it to my list of the best albums in 2018. Hopefully I can find time to listen to the rest of issues by him having been issued in 2018.
