There’s a new tune from Happiness Cage, the more experimental alter-ego of Irish SynthWaver Ciarán Byrne A.K.A. Adeyhawke. We always eagerly await the next Adeyhawke tune, but in the meantime Happiness Cage serves up something a bit more cerebral, giving you something to think about while you’re resting your feet from dancing to Adeyhawke tunes. This latest one is called Image Crystal.
With patterns built on field recordings Ciarán made on his travels Image Crystal creates an organic soundscape peppered with lilting synths that drift through the sonic landscape. Calling to mind some of Autechre’s more emotive moments, Image Crystal is a beautiful and evocative four minute experience.

We’re not big fans for inter-artist comparisons, but SLK is kinda’ like London’s answer to BANKS. Delivering a warm concoction of avant-garde Future R&B, combining experimental electronics with soulful vocals. Her new single, Hush, follows on from a critically acclaimed EP last year titled Form. Check it out below.
Hush starts out moody, and the gets moodier and moodier. Haunting beats and eerie, backtracked samples pair with subtle and ominous synths that forms a musical atmosphere for some particularly British sounding vocals. There’s a lot to like in here; if you’re into your Downtempo, or Future R&B, or experimental electronics, even a little Dub, SLK serves up an eclectic and involving tune right here.

Lauren Flax and Lauren Dillard’s CREEP release their Holly Miranda featuring new single ‘Animals’ next week, including this big House reMix from Modern Machines.
Dragging the dark ambience of CREEP straight into the big room and mixing up Holly Miranda’s huge ghostly vocals with big beats and a House bassline. When the ‘90’s House piano kick in, it really isn’t something you’re expecting in a CREEP track but turns the post Industrial, post-Dubstep track into a big summer club track.
