Glad to see Daniel Tonik back with another excellent tune featuring STEFF. The vocals here sound really nice and fit in with the production super well. I love how a lot of the electronic components in this song are quite subtle.

Glad to see Daniel Tonik back with another excellent tune featuring STEFF. The vocals here sound really nice and fit in with the production super well. I love how a lot of the electronic components in this song are quite subtle. A lot of electronic tracks tend to go for big explosive moments in their drop sections to make a point that the song is an EDM song. However, I think some of the best electronic songs are those that don't try to achieve epic moments like that and instead try and make the production subtle and less in your face to compliment the aesthetic of the song. This track is a prime example of that being done extremely well.

Far out there are some insane drops on this song. Can definitely hear the Blanke and 1788-L influences on this track. There are many instances of distortion in this song that have been done very well. In particular, the lead synths used at the end of the song are super saturated and sound great when they are at times given some mid-range distortion to them.

Super cool tune right here! There is a great atmosphere to this song which I'd say is achieved through its really solid use of delay and reverb. The synths used here as well are absolutely awesome!

Myllo coming back with another excellent tune! The vocal performance as always is spot on and compliments the production perfectly. I love the textures in this song and how smoothly it progresses. The tune has a nice momentum and energy to it as well which works really nicely.

I love the awesome production featured on this track. The use of the phone ringing as a core element to the song is really cool and the vocals flow very well with it. Reminds me a lot of Injury Reserve. Great work!

Wowie this is a stunner. Those vocals are insanely good and are backed by some exceptional folky instrumentation mixed in with some fantastic electronic production. The ending in particular is just so damn good!

Loving the really cool production on this track. Elements of this remind me of Aphex Twin. I also like how the song constantly introduces new ideas. It makes the entire track such an interesting and entertaining listening experience. Well done. :)

The vocals here are giving me real Grimes vibes. They're mixed into the song very nicely and have some cool audio manipulations applied to them. The two drops as well are really cool and pack a heap of low-end power to them.

This new single getting me even more excited for the new Loveboy and His Imaginary Friends album (which is releasing this Friday). Each release from Nicolaj under the Loveboy project has been diverse and consistently enjoyable. The entire musical project has such a fantastic and playful vision behind it. Definitely one of my favourite Unearthed discoveries this year.

This entire track works really really well. It has such a good drum n bass styled progression. Plus, the vocals are integrated into the song super effectively. I'm a huge fan of that lead synth in the chorus sections. It's so dense and saturated, which makes it powerful and awesome to listen to. Great job!!

Wow, I love the organic instrumentation used throughout this song. It's just beautiful. It's also quite unique. It reminds me I guess of Bon Iver with his recent releases.

On top of this, the entire track feels intrinsically intertwined with the natural world, which ironically is made possible by the clever and often subtle electronic production used in the song. One other thing as well, the mixing here is really really well done. I love the amount of stereo space that is utilised throughout the track. Super keen to hear how this song fits into your new EP!

Really love the energy on this track. The song has a great progression to it, starting very dreamy and atmospheric before building into this really funky and danceable tune! Also, that bass guitar is just awesome.

'Underwater' is another fantastic and ultra soulful single from RUBY. The vocals feel almost effortless. Plus, they are layered extremely well which gives them a really nice stereo width. The highly reverberated guitar at the end of the track sounds awesome. Great job!

There's some huge energy on this track! I love how hard the vocals go on literally every verse. I especially love the vocals that come in just after the 45 second mark. The production as well does a great job at making the entire song feel epic in scale.

Absolutely love how well this song builds. It starts super atmospheric and then develops into this awesome drum n bass styled track. Everything is mixed extremely well (I especially love those conga drums that come in near the end of the track and how they are panned to the far left and right). Also, those pads are super dreamy and sound fantastic in the context of the song. Great work!

Feeling those Bon Iver / Ásgeir influences on this track. For starters, the vocals sound really really good and are mixed fantastically in the song. The backing instrumentation is also spot on! In particular, I love the spacious acoustic guitar and that beautiful saxophone feature towards the end of the song. Awesome job here! Sounds really good!

That lead bass is sick! It has a huge amount of power to it and has quite a nice mid-range distortion which sounds really cool. The vocals as well are processed super well and I love the audio effects you've applied to them to make them sound almost other-worldly. Also, the progression on the song is very well executed and keeps the track engaging from start to finish.

Super eerie production on this track. Love the audio effects that have been applied to the lead vocals. It makes them sound other wordly, which works really well in the context of the song. Should mention as well that there is a great momentum to the song. Those kicks are quite punchy and have some cool delay effects added to them during the breakdown.

Feeling some really sick techno vibes with this tune! Reminds me a lot of Daniel Avery mixed in with Against All Logic and a bit of Willaris. K. I love the spacious pads that build up in the first drop. I'm also a huge fan of those ultra distorted 808's that come in just before the two minute mark.
