Getting some Emancipator / Bonobo feels from this beautiful track. I don't usually hear too much nu-jazz here on Unearthed, so it's great to see a song of that style appear here. Everything comes together super nicely, especially at the end with all the gorgeous organic instrumentation coming to create a fantastic climax to the song. Great work!

'Valentine' just hits all the right marks with its vibrant instrumentation and strong vocal presence from Dylan. It's uplifting pop-rock at its absolute finest!

The whole atmosphere of this track is crazily good. I love the pulsating kick that drives the entire song. The beat-play is really cool and offers heaps of twists and turns. Great stuff!

An excellent beat, a damn awesome vocal sample, and some killer synth layering. This song slaps. The side-chaining works very well. Feeling some strong Madeon nostalgia with this track. Also, the mixing on this tune is really solid. Keen to hear what's next!

These vocals are like a team-up from Thom Yorke x BATTS.. just amazing! I was a huge fan last year hearing Connor Tuan's contributions to the Norwood project, and to hear him again as a member of Mantell is just awesome. 'The Fog' is one of the best Unearthed songs I've heard in a long time. It's a perfect blend of soul and alt-country. Plus, features a perfect contrast...

Plus, features a perfect contrast in its intimate moments to its epic large scale instrumental breakdowns.

'Dusk' is a weird journey of a song that throughout its near six-minute run-time is an absolute joy to listen to. It's strange and mysterious at times, but it also packs in so many cool elements in its production and arrangement. It's kind of hypnotising in a way. Great stuff!

This track would be perfect to play whilst lying back on a beach holiday hearing the waves crash against the shore. There is a really solid groove to the tune, that be in its rhythmic progression and in its super chill bassline. Those vocals as well are absolutely stellar and compliment the overall aesthetic of this song extremely well. Great work!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!!

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!

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!
