Sometimes modern music comprises several layers. Retrospective, sophisticated, oriental ones. Here in Selected Goosebumps blog we introduce five projects worth a dive into right away.
1. Cale Sexton – Sustain (2021)
🇦🇺 This act is created by Cale Sexton for a variety of electronic tools and the Federation Bells. First, you should have an idea what this instrument looks like. It is installed in Melbourne, Australia, and it sounds in unique way.
This time, Cale Sexton operates this huge but elegant device masterly. So comes his music, massive and fragile, elaborated and absolutely free like a wind in the Melbourne park.

2. Five Rituals – V Rituals (2021)
🇱🇹 Five Rituals is a project by two Lithuanian guys, Deividas Jaroska & Andrius Grinevskis, working on the sound matter and segueing between genres.
In these rituals, the beats seem coming just inside the sonic statements, whether they are the voices, or strange noises crawling around us. Field recordings, studio works, and weird impact of isolation, all influenced this album to some extent.
3. Yarni – Boro (2021)
🇬🇧 Yarni is a music maker from Sheffield, UK. His “patching” approach is involving diverse influences into one single track. Thus, the compositions receive multiple shades combining with each other and appearing as something complete and self-sufficient.
Some jazzy stuff, voices which resemble the sounds of traditional Eastern instruments, smooth beats and glimpses of imagination, that’s what “Boro” is fused with.
4. Ellarge – Mogzauri (2021)
🇬🇪 We arrive at sunny Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. This country is famous for its artistic origins, apparently, electronic music concerned.
Ellarge offers deep vibes, touching patterns and interesting structures. Give them a listen, and you’ll join the chains of beats and tiny lights which are everywhere around this music. It’s indeed voyage into sonic ocean.
5. Comit – An Ocean Of Thoughts (2021)
🇺🇸 The last piece for today comes from the capital (well, from one of the capitals) of electronic music, Los Angeles, California.
James Clements, the author of Comit, unfolds his ambiental canvases, letting the sound waves hung in the air like a fog. These nice beats bring you back to your past. Tiny episodes flash back and cause a humble smile…
