"Loner" by Wisp X is a very atmospheric drum and bass heavy LP with not a lot really going on. The production all throughout is quite flat and lacking any real punch, which is expedited by the DnB and Happy Hardcore beats. My biggest issue with this project though is the repetitive-sounding tracks. And sadly, my favourite parts were the sections that were the least common throughout the LP.

Favourite(s): Soulless, Black Divinity
Least: Fragment

This was my first time listening through a full Zes project and I was quite happy with what I heard. This isn't the most exciting or exhilarating EP in the world, but Zes does bring a calmness and serenity to each track. The Bon Iver inspirations are quite evident, whether it's the minimalistic acoustic, layered vocals, or hints of electronic sounds. But that's sort of the problem with this project, I would rather just go listen to Bon Iver than this. But that's not to say this isn't bad, ... read more

Kompany's "Untouchable" EP is an ambitious exploration of mechanized riddim sound design, but tetters out when it comes to overall replayability and enjoyment.

The sound design is creative I'll give it that, the EP is girthy which is always a plus, but in the end ... read more

Don Diablo's "FORΞVΞR" is a valiant attempt at another house album made for commercial appeal, yet it doesn't do either particularly well. For the EDM fans, it's a boring, uninteresting, heard it a million times before, hour-long LP. For the pop fans, nothing is super "singable" as most tracks are harder to play in a radio context than the average pop track. In the end, there are some good songs, but definitely a lot more awful tracks for this to be anything than a ... read more

TheFatRat's latest LP "PARALLAX" is slightly different, but nothing new. A majority of the tracks on this LP follow the same structure and childlike wondrous atmosphere that many people have grown up on. All of these songs feel like a more stripped-down version of tracks already within his discography. I just found this entire LP to be quite cheesy and lacking and real substance. And with that ridiculously cheesy vocals, the whole thing was a bit of a turnoff.
