And because he doesn’t have any title for all of these events, he called it “Untitled”. The track has already reached the #1 spot on the Gr-Top 100 and it’s

BEEA: “Ride Or Die” – Classic soul tropes are juxtaposed with modern pop touches

Her brand new track “Ride Or Die” showcases her voice and passionate delivery, which keeping things intense and emotional. Aside from the song’s sonic and stylistic consistency, one notable difference between the material here and BEEA’s peers is the rawness of Brazilian beauty’s vocals. The frayed edges of the singer’s voice, are played as assets here. Her voice feels lived-in and wizened and she turns in

Union Five has a groove-centric sound

Rhythm is as important as melody throughout the amalgamation of tracks on the self-titled album by Union Five. This is evidenced by the alternating emphasis on one aspect or the other – and often the fusion of the two elements, which enlivens the musicians as they play. In turn, this spontaneity commands attention because surprises abound within each track. At a given juncture the band may slow the growing momentum of the music, giving itself and the listener time to ponder what has preceded, in preparation for what is to follow. But this moment is often fleeting, as temperate paces

The Keymakers: “Burning Me Up” – smooth romantic rhymes dressed in satin

This track obliterates, all of the commercialized trash that is cluttering the airways and giving listeners ear-infections with tired materialistic and blasé content. The Keymakers dish out smooth romantic rhymes dressed in satin and steel voices that resonate with ear-worming falsetto tones. While R&B dominated the charts through most of the mid-90s, it

Marcel Heah: “Travelogue” – beautiful and deceptively simple elements

More like personal sketches for piano than traditional, structured songs, the music of Melbourne-based Australian artist Marcel Heah plays like a poetic soundtrack to the world’s tangible and intangible elements, and nowhere is this more brilliantly enacted than on his album, “Travelogue”. There are wondrous, beautifully understated melodies here, but what’s amazing is Marcel’s intense inspiration that spills from his spirit and flows straight to the keys. He uses simple techniques that are not meant to impress the most intellectual of music critics but are woven to bring any listener with an open heart to emote. Affecting and full of

Norunoua: “Chrysalis” – intricate beat-work with expansive synth melodies

Mannie Cutean started the experimental project ‘Norunoua’ from the suburbs of Detroit. As a live set started to evolve with an APC and a Maschine, Steve Cotton a longtime friend from grade school, joined in on synth guitar to make the live show more versatile. This synergy has eventually led to the twelve-track “Chrysalis”, the duo’s debut album. I have been blown away by this album since it was introduced to me by and really served as a transition from moving into IDM from being a trance fan.

I have listened to the whole album numerous times and I find it relaxing, upbeat and melodic. Electronic is subjective to the individual listening to it, if you are looking for a more structured rhythmic electronic album, with beautiful and intricate soundscapes this is absolutely a must own or at least listen to it and check it out.

When it comes to IDM, Norunoua sits near the top of the heap. They obviously don’t get the credit they deserve just yet as they are only starting out with this recording, but make no mistake they will do in a very short time. You can tell that Mannie Cutean has done his homework here.

This album is so detailed, yet never overwhelming sonically. It sounds completely unlike anything to have come out in recent times. Every sound effect and sample is used to absolute perfection here to create one of those rare albums that have the ability to transport you to a different place and time. The album has a running narrative taken from its title – “Chrysalis represents metamorphosis, a process in which a gathering of elements reconstruct themselves into a different form.”

And the musical narrative is so vividly real that it paints a picture with every track. As I sat back and listened (and you’ll want to sit back and listen, completely focused, for full effect), I couldn’t help but unconsciously create a story around the images so convincingly forming in my mind.

The album is a concept album, and it can have a story, but that story completely depends on the mood, imagination and experiences of the person hearing it. This is about your own personal metamorphosis, and “Chrysalis” is your soundtrack. This sort of listener participation is a rarity that should never be overlooked when selecting music.

I’m almost certain that many would have the urge to describe Norunoua as a fusion between the surgical explorations of The Aphex Twin and the elastic soundscapes by Boards of Canada. But Norunoua, of course, are in a genre of their own.

Combining intricate beat-work with expansive synth melodies that keep on swirling into inter-winding sonic tangles, Norunoua creates a unique mesh of sound which is as abstract and experimental as it is cerebral and astute. Norunoua bring the ‘I’ to the ‘Intelligent Dance Music’ acronym.

What I really appreciated in their sound is the particular attention to the developing melody, its musicality and very fragile tone.  Here’s another set of electronic artists to definitely keep track of in the years to come.

Essential tracks: “Bloom Positive”, “After We Talked”, “Squeak Toy”, “Frosty Feelings” and “Skyliner”.
