Feryl DeMarco – When Nothing Matters | Downtempo

Feryl DeMarco just keeps pumping tracks out! This one oozes electronic goodness, like it was plucked straight out of a movie or game soundtrack. The drums are powerful yet not overbearing and gives all the other elements – such as the soft and brooding synths and plenty of glitches to go around – to breathe. With the rate at which DeMarco’s uploading and creating new music, I think we can expect nothing but greatness in 2020!

Feryl DeMarco – Dream Hopping | Downtempo

This song… I don’t even know how to classify it… Feryl DeMarco’s back with her second single, and while it’s definitely a lot less hectic in comparison to her last track, this one definitely has a unique choppy flair. Borrowing elements from trip hop, ambient and R&B among other genres, Feryl’s successfully created the audio equivalent of wandering around in Luna’s dream realm as she hops from dream to dream of Equestria’s inhabitants. Definitely something to relax to!

FilledSilhoutte – Lose Control | Ambient

Inspired by Last Tempest, FilledSilhoutte crafted a fine Ambient experience that will make the perfect musical ambience for walking in a world that rejected you, feeling the rain on your face as well as the decision to walk away brewing inside of you. Melancholic and somewhat futuristic vibes are brought masterfully here along the reflective melodies and space-y synths, and listening to this is such a bliss!

The master of Dark Ambient in the community, Koron Korak presents his latest experiment in the dark, themed around “Lesson Zero” Twilight and acting as a personal follow-up to it too. Just like the kind of atmospheric bliss you’d hear in an horror game, the piece is featuring amazing sound design and even effect-powered vocals from Koron himself, enacting the story with those lyrics that you can read from the description. A masterpiece of ambience and dark atmospheres!

Tadpole – S.O.S |Industrial/Ambient

Cookies…

Nightmare Night is upon us, and what better way to celebrate it than with a deeply creepy piece from Tadpole? What we’ve been served is something that wouldn’t be out of place in a horror game, as it spends the first 2 minutes building up atmosphere with a droning synth lines and distant sound effects before eventually adding in more elements, like a bass that compliments the already strong atmosphere. Soon after, we’re treated to the addition of strong drums lifted straight from a dubstep track alongside a creepy distorted synth riff. Board up your windows, because the cookie zombies are coming!
