Nicolas Dominique – Journey | Ambient / Chillout

That recently released gorgeous artwork from INowISeeI has got to be a very fitting cover art for such a wonderful musical experience. Reflecting the inner depth of Trixie’s journey into the land, as well as perhaps a spiritual journey, the track dives deep into a relaxed state of much contemplative power, as we take in the many wonders around us and partake in blissful sound, breathing life and channeling emotion…

Time Baby – Blossom (Winterlight Remix) | Chillout / Ambient

Time Baby has been delighting us for years with his awesome take at several Alt Rock subgenres including Shoegaze (I highly recommend checking out the rest of his channel), and it’s time for a much welcomed comeback, with the artist’s remix of his own track Blossom originally released in 2013. Taking a surprising new Chillout/Ambient direction, the remix certainly doesn’t disappoint and provides for yet another blissful experience of sound. Here’s to hopefully more new releases from Time Baby!

Seventh Element – Fear of Dark | Album | Electronic


NB: This was originally featured on Equestria Daily on 24 December 2016.

Seventh Element, one of the most prolific artists in the fandom, has released a spooky concept album called Fear Of Dark. Generally things like this are best served in one extended sitting – which is probably why he’s uploaded it all as one singular video. This is a pretty dark album, with ambient and foreboding soundscapes, however some parts include vocals, and others are a bit more uptempo. He’s also written a fanfic to go with it, if you want to go deep into the meaning of the album, as both the story and the album are meant to compliment each other. Make sure to check the video of the album out below if this sounds like something for you – it’s high quality stuff!


PS from Spectra: Sorry readers (and especially sorry SE if you’re reading) if you were expecting a more comprehensive post. We definitely fell behind in December, and I especially haven’t been able to keep up as much as I used to. We’re working on a way to fix that, I promise.

Nicolas Dominique – Lost Symphony | Ambient

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 5 December 2016.

Some more new music from Nicolas Dominique with something a little more pared down from his usual releases. Throughout the track is some very well composed cello which takes center stage, playing some haunting melodies. The track is otherwise held together by a variety of electronic sounds that help to create an ambient and mysterious feel to the whole track.

174UDSI – Past Future EP | Electronic


So, uh…hey. Been a while since I wrote up anything here, and so this writeup is a little later than anticipated, but let’s not dwell on that! Instead let’s take a look at this (almost) brand new EP from 174UDSI! I think this is the first time I’ve seen some sort of album release from him, so this’ll be a new experience for me too. Anyway, let’s jump right in and look at it track by track, shall we?

A Symphony Of Two – The Clearing | Orchestral

This new track from Orchestral/Ambient duo A Symphony Of Two, and another of my recent favorites (yes there has been a lot of them recently!), has all that it takes to perfectly embody the beauty and serenity of its theme, title and cover art. If you’re a lover of Nature like I am, you might fall in love for forest clearings as well, suitable for the appreciation of the many wonders of Nature, there among trees and bathed by sunlight. And with this song full of wonder, spirit of exploration, wooden sounds, divine choruses, and untold bliss, a new dimension has been added to the sight.

ertrii – Everfree | Ambient / Chillout

A track I affectionate a lot, this new Chillout release from Ertrii accompanied by a mighty Ambient side and outro perfectly conveys the beauty one can find in even the most tenebrous of forests, for in the appreciation of Nature lies great power and happiness, just like what this song evokes. Amble around, then take a nap among the trees and birds, feel connected to your inner Fluttershy self, and experience all the glory of Everfree.
