REM Overload is an electronic track by Newport-based produced 800xL, who takes his name from an 8-bit Atari home computer. The track features on 800xL’s new album CTRLALTDEL, which is available to buy on Bandcamp now.
Catalonia is a mellow chill-out track by Brooklyn-based producer Saffron.
Warm Bullet by London act Count Counsellor is a smooth electronic soul track featuring samples from Boyz II Men’s 90s ballad Water Runs Dry.
Aglow is a gently pulsing electronica track by American musician RyIm.
This experimental pop song by London artist Yodashe is very musically ambitious, combing glitchy beats with brash, dissonant vocal harmonies in a free-flowing arrangement. But the key is the variety of catchy melodic hooks, which pop up in unexpected places and keep the track engaging throughout.
Blue Room won't make easy background music, but listen carefully and there's lots to enjoy.
Madrid-based producer Skygaze specialises in dreamy, mesmeric dance music that sounds best listened to in the very early hours of the morning. Drowned is no exception and features waves of soft, hazy synths and crisp electronic drum rolls from which broken fragments of vocal samples occasionally emerge.
Here’s another smooth, chilled-out electronic track - this time by UK producer Jo Noon. October features pulsing synths and hazy vocal samples punctuated by some fantastically crisp percussion.
Soft, balmy synths form the foundation of this joyously warm and soothing track by London producer Adam Halogen, which features vocals by Ben Aizenberg.
It's not exactly Miami Vice, but something about the track's synthy 80s sounds just felt right for cruising around in Miami's December sun.
Her Lips is a dark, brooding electronica record by a Munich-based producer called Berunto. The track starts off with a pulsing and deceptively syncopated synth line, which sets it up for a wonderfully unexpected bass line to kick in a few moments later.
French producer Aimedeuxhaine has sent us his latest track, a lazy, hazy but bass-heavy summer anthem called Atlantique. Like previous tracks we've featured on Dezeen Music Project, the record was released by French label Atelier du Sample.
The music we used on our first Dezeen and MINI World Tour report from Berlin is a tech-house track by Cardiff producer Simplex. We featured the track on Dezeen Music Project last year, and FM002 is another track taken from the same EP, albeit with a very different vibe.
There's been a great response to our call-out for tracks to play at INTRO NY in New York this week, and we'll be featuring some of our favourites on Dezeen Music Project over the coming days and weeks.
Here's a new track by Glen Liberman of Aesthetic Invention, a multi-disciplinary design studio based in New York. Code Song is a catchy electronic pop song with soft, sombre synths and wistful vocal harmonies.
Here's another track by British trio We Have Band, who we discovered at the MINI Paceman Garage in Milan this year. Where Are Your People? is taken from the band's most recent album, Ternion, released last year on French label Naïve Records.
You can watch the music video for the song here.
We Have Band is a UK-based electronic indie band, who played on Friday last week at the MINI Paceman Garage in Milan. Divisive is an up-beat, disco-infused song, which we used as the soundtrack for our latest video report from Milan.
The song is taken from We Have Band's debut album, WHB, which was released in 2010 on French label Naïve Records.
Newport-based producer 800xL has sent us this sparse, stripped-down remix of a track called Tutto Bene by Italian artist Jolly Mare, which is part of a remix competition being held by record label Bad Panda Records.
You can listen to the original track here.
This is a remix of a track by Japanese artist Yu-Chi, which we featured on Dezeen Music Project back in August last year. The original track is both weird and beautiful, a quality that BLKrKRT's remix retains, while introducing a darker, more brooding intensity.
You can listen to the original track here.
Gazelle is another South African group that we discovered at the Design Indaba Music Circuit in Cape Town last week. As this track called Options demonstrates, Gazelle fuse traditional African music with elements from the electro, disco and synth-pop genres to create an eclectic sound that they call Lim Pop.
