Kashuks is a young Latvian producer who started out making hip hop beats and has now delved into more melancholic and experimental genres."Universe" is absolutely mesmerizing to me, and the video is just as captivating. Enjoy!

Koda's "Staying" is beyond beautiful. The ultimate song for relaxation. You can download it for free here.

As winter takes me now
of cold and clammy skin
a barren empty womb
as I am born again

It's pulling at my hair
and crawling all within
a gentle beating heart
is swept away by sin

The monster in your head
won't surface again
be still my child
wash away the sin

And I as future kings
walk off the edge
hold me by my name
hold me til the end

Mario M

This song is a bit out of this blog's realm, but some of my discoveries lately have made me want to break down the genre barriers I put on myself for this blog. Mario M creates a great blend of beautiful ambient and piano scapes combined with D&B- drum and bass. This is one of those songs that your laptop speakers won't do justice.

Patrick O'Hearn

Lia has been playing this song over the past few months and every time I asked her who the artist was I forgot to write it down. I finally got around to exploring Patrick O'Hearn's ambient collection and have been very impressed. Especially with this track, it's so ethereal, and it brings back great memories for me.

One Year Later/ Siberian Islands

This is wild. Today of all days, I decided to breathe life back into this blog. Today is October 20th, 2013 and I just noticed that my last blog entry was October 20th, 2012. I'm going to take that as some sort of sign that resurrecting this blog was meant to be. I took the time to look back at some of the comments people have made over the past year and it inspired me to start sharing my musical discoveries once more. I've been lucky to come across some great groups who have posted their music in response to my entries. One group reached out to me back in May, they go by the name of Siberian Islands. They are a "two-piece outfit that combines retro sounds with ambient, 8-bit tunes, breakbeat and loads of real instruments." This is great stuff, definitely refreshing and exactly what I needed to hear today. You can listen to their entire album on Bandcamp and find a higher quality version of this song there as well. Enjoy and I'm excited to get this going again!

Little People

"We Are But Hunks of Wood" is The Anglo-Swiss producer's second full release. He took a new direction with this album, and I like it. Not a typical Quiet Ambient artist, but these instrumental trip-hop beats are too good to pass up. Watch in 1080p for full effect. Below I also posted his Start Shootin' remix which I've been listening to on repeat.

Sun Devoured Earth

Time to breathe some life back into this blog. I'll attempt to do so with Sun Devoured Earth, a Latvian solo project. This guy knows how to create a mood, and he does it so eloquently by meshing gloomy dream pop with elements of shoegaze and post-metal. Seems a bit complicated, whatever it is, I can't stop listening to it.
