Ethnoeight is a free sampler compiled by Outtallectuals that tries to capture the theme and sound of Middle Eastern music in the form of the Trap electronic sub-genre. This EP is in a partt of the Outtallectuals research for omni-dimensional music that manage to fuse music from different backgrounds in new ways, and educate people about the music from other parts of the globe.
This Winter solstice, following up with the theme of outer-worldly and ethereal music, we present to you Ethereality Vol.2.: 11 tracks with artists from Australia, Canada, France, Iceland, Russia, Norway, UK and USA to warm you up in the coming winter months.
Track list details:
The album starts off with a minimal juke/footwork crossover by Bitter Bees ♡, leading into the cold-hearted unique electronic jazz of Feverkin with fantastic vocals by Bijou. The Jazz spirit is taken forward in the form of two electronic/hip-hop tracks courtesy of Amin Payne feat Doc Mastermind, and Koresma with bars from Sir Bishop. Slowly raising the tempo into 100 BPM, the organic guitars and winter vibe are carried forward into Azedia’s beautifully chilling music. Going close to extremely cold music, next track is a collective work of three amazing artists from City By Night Records being Skywide, Izzard and Soular Order. Increasing the tempo into the 130’s, next one is another instrumental jazz based composition by Mitrxxx, getting the mood ready for some smooth chillstep in the form of Qelaion. The album continues with an epic post-rock/electronic fusion from Ben of the Universe, before a cold scandinavian future garage / chillout gem from Nyanara and the closer melodic glitch from Amfir.
