Hallelugenia – Voices & Ghosts

Bristol is our next port of call for a pensive piece from experimental electronic act Hallelugenia. This is a more serious, darker composition but it's highly effective in it's construction. The song starts with well pitched groaning opening vocals over some throwback keyboard work. The whole song is is then elevated nicely with those clear,... Continue Reading →

AquaBIONIC – Flavortown

I think this could be the week of good relaxed instrumentals here at Sniffer. Firstly, we added the brilliant 'Blue Moon' by Astrolemo to our 2019 playlist, now we are sticking up a balanced yet silky piece from underground Texan Soundcloud producer aquaBIONIC. Flavortown is the tune and it's the crisp bass and dreamy modulated... Continue Reading →

Nick AM – FATALE (EP)

It's not often (or ever) I link two songs from the same EP on a Sniffer post, usual ways are meant to be broken, especially when a debut EP is completely brilliant. This New York artist is certainly well worth hearing today. Nick AM's LoFi house indie has just announced itself to us via The... Continue Reading →

MOTTRON – Lighter

Brooding synths litter this debut from new French pop act MOTTRON from the outset. The song plods along purposefly and eerily - the intensity continues throughout and an acidic synth melody drives home it's powerful intentions. The electronic production of this song reminds me slightly of something 'Son of Kick' would have produced a few... Continue Reading →

((( O ))) – Higher

Slow and methodical here from ((( O ))), real name June Marieezy - a Texas based chill LoFi styled artist! Higher is a simple composition which never over-complicates itself - smooth beat, smooth vocals and subtle keys. Certainly a song to have a cup of tea to on a mundane Monday - that's what I'm...

Lakker – A Whisper In Your Ear

Completely Lekker Lekker here from Berlin-based Dubliners Ian McDonnell and Dara Smith (Lakker). What type of sorcery is this? 'A Whisper In Your Ear' is the end product, in my opinion, of their decade of working together on their own genre the aptly named - Techno not Techno. Not all will be into this one...

VanIves – Float

Hailing from Galloway, in the South-West of Scotland, these two mates Stuart Ramage and Roan Ballintine are doing rightly these days! I came into contact with them recently and enjoyed their take on commercially based music. It was 'Positive' I heard a few months ago and I put them on the backburner in lieu of...

Neil Cowley – Solitary Refinement

Sitting on my flight back to London this evening going through my list of tunes I've been sent and tunes I'd saved - I come across this chilled to the max little gem from the UK's critically acclaimed Jazz Pianist Neil Cowley. There is nothing complicated and brash to be heard here, a simple slow-rolling... Continue Reading →

Blaring out uniquely manic sounds, they are a must see if you get the chance. An exciting sound is always welcome... Continue Reading →
