A tasty fusion of soul and R&B, with an irresistible and intoxicating staggering beat. This feels like next generation Hiatus Kaiyote to me!

I love that whistling melody! Definitely not what I expected when I hit play, but it delivered in a surprisingly pleasant way. I like the way you've kept things stripped back - the little breaks of silence give this track a kick.

Funky and fresh with an eccentric mix of safari-esque percussion and beautiful vocals. What a quack-er of a track, Ducks!

This is loaded with energy! It's beautifully balanced, with ethereal vocals and a tantalising mix of carefully interwoven instrumentals. Loving the chorus that swells and catches you like a wave with its wailing guitars, crisp drumbeats and siren-like vocals.

This is so slinky and sultry, with chord progressions that make my ears melt.

This exploded off the start line faster than Usain Bolt, and kept up a break-neck pace the whole way through. Even with its wild and punchy textures, I wasn't prepared for the mind-boggling blow-out at 2:17.

Groovy/10. Fuzzy vibes and a rock-solid chorus scream home run with this one.

Totally electric, packed with hazy atmospheric textures and airy vocals. There's a bubbling undercurrent of crisp beats that add just the right amount of bite.

So much beauty, so much feeling. The vocals are really something special, with a yearning but strident tone that matches the lyrical depth. I'm definitely going to be hitting repeat on this one a few times.

Listening to this is a transporting, otherworldly experience. Percussive textures drip and drop unexpectedly, with a bass so low it feels like it's coming from within your own mind. Eerie with fantastic production. I'm really keen to hear where your work takes us in the future!

This is a track I could probably listen to for Nineteen Hours. It stumbles along at a wonderfully lazy pace, unhurried and willing to savour the moment. The vocals soar to some impressive heights, too!

This is quirky and catchy, with a harmonic progression that seems to constantly go exploring in new directions, yet always returns back to its starting place. It's playful and mysterious, and I like it.

I came for the vocals, stayed for the chorus, and got lost in the layers of instrumentals. Totally in awe of the mesmerising and smokey vocals that scale the heights with ease. Truly magnificent.

Oh wow, I don't even know where to begin. The sonic quality is out of this world, drifting in space with the warped, morphing textures and shimmering melody. The vocals are intoxicating, weaving a spell that's impossible to resist. This is some seriously exciting electronica.

I love the sonic complexities of elkkle's work. From the fragmented lyrics to the glitchy percussive beats, to the dripping synths and the bass that appears and disappears like a whisper of smoke. Frails is no exception - it's all at once intangible yet catchy, which is what brings me back again and again.

Twisting synths pick you up and drop you into a swirling whirlpool of staggered beats, boundary-pushing synths and hypnotic vocals. Innovative electronica that ticks all the right boxes.

I don't know what I love most about this: that lively bass that seems to have a life of its own, the heavenly effortless vocals, or the rippling synths that burble and churn beneath it all. Layers upon layers of sonic textures combine to make this one serious gem of a track.

That drop is so explosive it should come with a warning. This is jam-packed with future-trap vibes, and it hammers home with that bass.

A delicate slice of minimalist electronic-pop. The (deceptively) simple elements are woven together in a textured musical mosaic, topped with captivating vocals. Gorgeous!
