Free Anckaert’s playlist #9: Doldrums, Dinamarca, Washed Out and more!

Look who is back! Our brand new playlist curator Free Anckaert – note to native English speakers: yes that’s his real name, it’s not a nickname – is back with a selection of his favorite tracks.

Every week, Free scours through hundreds of SoundCloud tracks to find the best new gems by artists that are flying under the radar.

Each week our Brussels-based fellow overwhelms you with a variety of songs that make your head go nuts. Here are a few of his favorites:

Doldrums – HEATER:

As a fan from the very beginning, I can’t be more happy to hear Doldrums is back with one of his best tracks ever and soon his third album “ESC”. “HEATER” hits you right in the face with heavy dark industrial synths, skipping syncopated beats and Airick Woodhead’s airy melodic vocals. Oh yes, check the video clip.

Dinamarca – Resurrection / Paraíso:

It hasn’t happened much I added two songs by the same artists in my Highclouds playlist (Charli XCX yay!). But Dinamarca is a real phenomenon able to make me doubt my music taste sometimes since he’s making hardcore-on-the-edge-gabber and emotive, sad-euphoric sounds. Both tracks are part of his Dinamarca’s new “Himnos” EP. (Holy is still one of the best club tracks made last year #noshame)


Washed Out – Get Lost:

Back in the good old (do I dear to say this already?) times of 2011-2013 when chillwave and dream pop were peaking, Washed Out was one of the best in its kind. With the two very close affiliated acts Toro y Moi and Wild Nothing both going into a new direction – the former better than the latter – all eyes are on Washed Out. And after a few listens of this new “Get Lost” I can assure you this song is just top notch!
