This week, we open our playlist with a major act. Indeed, the Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós released the short atmospheric track “#sigurrosrouteone.” A way for the trio to announce some live dates. You can have more details there.

Then, Malvae, an electronic musician based in the Netherlands, follows with “Azul”. After an intro that perfectly fits with the previous song, the track quickly turns into an exotic chaos. As the producer, who was born in New-Zealand, explains: “Azul” meaning “Blue” in Brazilian Portuguese, represents the beautiful blue skies and vast ocean underneath.” The track was inspired by his travel to Brazil.

Then, impossible not to feature WWWINGS and the industrial track “Arcane”. It’s like if the machines of a factory were dancing altogether. The track is taken from the album “PHOENIXXX”, due to be released on August 19 via the emblematic Planet Mu Records. Then, let’s go back to the peace and quiet serenity of littleBoy, a new act that convinced us with “And Then He Enters.”

We also feature one of the last Adult Swim Single. Impossible to ignore Clark when we talk about experimental music. The track is particularly rough and should give you the need to stamp and put your hands up in the air.

Abandoning the experimental side, but keeping the dance movement, KR3TURE & The Human Experience offer a great and soft tune with “A Little Deeper.” Then comes Ryan Hemsworth‘s new track “Burying The Sun.” Ash Koosha send us back in the cosmos with “Faint”: a track about “language and how emotions travel through melodies when we speak words.”

Finally, we close the playlist of this week with Indigo Beck‘s futuristic trap tune and Star Slinger‘s “Always Be Motivated By Love.”
