You may not remember it but in 2006, a little known artist called Overcoat came to our attention and was featured on Gratisvibes. Six years on, I could still remember the ambient grooves of The Sky is Never Dark Anymore EP and it’s hypnotic sound of synthesized pads and slow evolving textures. However, where […]

Is it getting colder where you’re at? I’ve found a release that’s almost perfectly suited for autumnal weather. Ontagon’s full length album “Shapes and Sizes” has a pastoral, introspective, hypnotic, sweet-dreams feel to it thats perfect for those stay-in-bed mornings nestled under the covers.
The album is quite diverse, from the fairly […]
People are really creating great ambient stuff these days. The mp3 mix that is the focal point of this music review is a great testament to the above statement.
Titled simply as Ambientgroove.net mix 1, the new mix by freshly created mix project, Ambientgroove.net, is by far one of the most pleasant ambient efforts I have […]
It is hard to describe why Ixtlan’s music is so appealing. Maybe it’s how smooth the overall production of each track is, with melodies, basslines, leads and ambience all falling neatly into place. Everything feels right yet there is still some amount of not-right in each track - something that makes this album deserving of […]
Every defunct netlabel has had their greats. The now defunct Bedroom Brain netlabel was no exception with its own selection of “experimental and innovative music”. I quite liked a couple of their releases. This one stood out as a great ambient release that I’m sure most people would enjoy.
Highly melodic and entertaining if you […]
“Orange Crush” is Norwegian based artist Karl Endreson, and “The Fields” is his first release. For a first release, The Fields sounds incredibly polished, is instantly memorable and represents a stunning achievement for Karl and Archaic Horizon , the label on which “The Fields” was released.
This full length album effortlessly switches from soothing downtempo […]
Hard-working UK producer Chris Moss takes a break from his TB-303 to give us “The Sub”.
Released on Wrong Music’s netlabel, the album is a break from Chris’s usual squelchy acid and 707/909 driven tracks. In fact, “The Sub” sees Chris entering mellow territory (”Up Periscope”) and there’s even a dreamy tune! (”Love Tip”).
“Rust” was released on the Entity netlabel in February 2006, featuring collaborations between the artists, Dotkraz, Idle Sunder and Casual Coincidence.
For someone who doesn’t really listen to much ambient music or “found sound” or whatever you may call it, “Rust” was an intriguing listen. The sound is definitely dark and eerie - I think […]
.. don’t listen to this album. It’s going to make you really sad.
This compilation album from the netlabel S!te Records features 13 accomplished electronic musicians, each contributing one track.
The tracks are minimalistic in general, makes one feels really peaceful when listening to them. Strangely, I did not feel what the release title suggests while […]
It’s been a while since we reviewed any releases from the Kahvi Collective Netlabel. The last two reviews we did from kahvi were pasta-licious and deceptive, now we have a straightforward album which features a familiar blend of chillout and idm.
Kahvi’s end of November release is from Brioskj who resides in Genoa, Italy. Brioskj creates […]
According to this information description at Sutemos, this album is not only a Christmas gift from the popular IDM netlabel, it is also serves as a prelude or teaser to more of the great releases that they are going to have soon.
Other than Sleepy Town Manufacture, I am not familiar with most other artists involved […]
Yea! I’m finally back on G’vibes - its been a frantic last two weeks of cramming for university exams - but its finally over! And what better way to celebrate than to review the latest and greatest netlabel releases? :)
Up for review today is the stunning “Secret Melodies” by Mr. Incognito, released on the Phonocake […]
