Mountain Range is an ambient electronic project from Leeds producer Stuart Thomas. The music takes strong post rock influence and mixes it with MPC driven sampling and beats, to creates something as emotive and relaxing as it is engaging.

'Leeds producer Stuart Thomas blends organic percussion with a breathtaking, kaleidoscopic backdrop of warm, evolving synthetics, to help produce what might be the most beautiful set of early works DIY has set its ears on for some time. Strictly, one could class this as ambient music, but it has a modern-day edge that turns it into a more accessible being.' This is Fake DIY: First On, by Jamie Milton.

'Here’s where happy music resides. This is quirky, twee electronic music. Mountain Range creates delicate soundscapes, hence all the tiny, twinkling sounds. Beats are on here but they tend to take a backseat to the melodies and rhythms. For the vast majority of the album they stay out of the way, remaining near silent as the tones configure themselves around each other. 7.4/10' Beach Sloth.

'A sonic hug with maybe some nails digging in' Gill Mills.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
