A whole atmosphere is created. It smells like cigars, whiskey and the streets. Pour yourself a glass. It's on the house.

Inside we find strange and mysterious atmospheres, deep layers of dream-woven soundwaves and ghostly voices.
Five of these tracks are new and, I guess, should have been on the original album. The other four are remixes made by artists both obscure and exceptionally gifted in the art of taking musical notes and making them whirl in the air like again and again.
To be listened in complete tranquility.

This producer from Paris executes a pretty amazing revival of old-school synthwave music. You'll get what you see on the cover, and the intro will do its job finely, introduce you to a dark, violent and futuristic world.
I can but recommend every single one of his albums. They all radiate with that particular atmosphere that reminds me of Iron Maiden's "Somewhere in Time".
See you in hel... hrm, I mean, the future.

Changing between frenetic rhythms and old-school synths reminiscing of the short-lived glory of the Dance music of the 80's and 90's, this album lifts us up in the air, then plunges us down into the earth, near the lava core of the planet, then makes us soar up again to the flying cities of the future that we all have seen somewhere in a waking dream.
Like all the albums out at Cold Tear Records, you may buy it on their Bandcamp to get the high-quality lossless format, or download it in .mp3 via the "Archives.org" link on the page featuring the album. Your choice. I bought it to show support to one of my favourite artists in the electronic music world.

Out at Expansions Collective, this compilation will take you to new heights of hip-hop and urban chill, that style of music that strangely makes me want to live in the city, whereas I thought that thought would never linger in my head. Go figure.
Saxophone, piano, hip-hop, the whole finely blended and beautifully crafted.

If you like that kind of music I can recommend the albums Inner Thoughts by Cabeiri and Random Friday by Solar Fields (but those aren't free mind you).
