Sammy Maximin is an electronica creator from the USA.
Spreading winds broadly the range of styles encompassed are wide, taking in hip-hop, synthwave, soul, electro-rock and much more along the way, yet wherever the spotlight is shining the creativity is undimmed and thereby never leaving the listener feeling shortchanged rather discovering their day lifted.
The most recent EP The Wedding Process encapsulates the breadth of influences with each of the five tracks refracting of a very different facet. My pick of the release being the electro-rock influenced middle number – Ex-Friends (Gone).
The US electronica project MIRS was introduced last year.
The newest single to be released which came out on the 29th of August, available on bandcamp, whilst still containing the under-current of chants is a more pressing affair creating a song with expanding and contracting atmospherics which invites the listener on a journey of their own imagination as the track frameworks an internal narrative which each listener will experience uniquely whilst lost in their own thought processes.
Istanbul Hippodrome is an English electronica duet.
Within the past hour their latest track No Way Home surfaced. Freshly out of the blocks the duo combine synths, guitar and far distant drum-kit to deliver music of contortions and interwoven lacing that finds the mind circumnavigating the loops in an involuntary hypnosis akin to water drawing from the bottom of unplugged bath, circling in ever tighter spirals as it drains.
Again – you are as new to these two – as Istanbul Hippodrome are to you – and this is once again a band where there is no social media page or website to which I can direct your attention.
The newest track to surface Glambience is of very different mood to previous material that has appeared, perhaps appropriately so given the project name, with an approaching five minutes of soothing ambience revolving through the room.
Isvisible from Douglas in the Isle Of Man is an experimental-drone solo project.
Before hitting play ensure you have plenty of time to listen to Isvisible. A prolific creator of experimental electronica with seventeen LPs, encompassing one hundred and thirty two compositions and – released this month – a ten track retrospective, all from a standing start in April of last year.
The sounds bend their way around the head in loops and divergences which entrance the mind as tempo and temperament shifts throughout the pieces, which can extend from around the three minute mark to well in excess of ten.
Although the compositions are testing new waters, there is a calmness to the sounds which makes for tracks which have a surprising semanticity, despite being bereft of vocal.
It would be possible to write far more, but it is best heard to appreciate the spacious kaleidoscope that is Isvisible.
