Holobeams

Holobeams and Broken Machines looks to create uplifting and beautiful electronic music. Influenced from bands like Boards of Canada, Washed Out, Orbital, M83. The sound has some synth nostalgia, retro vibe going on but more emphasis is on trying to create something new rather than rehashing the past.

SynthGlasgow.com ~ Released as a free download via Bandcamp, the five track, self-titled ‘Holobeams and Broken Machines EP’ is a stunning debut which creates an incredible atmosphere of soaring synths and epic soundscapes. Influences can be immediately cited amongst the Trip Hop heavyweights - opening track ‘Bocume’ could easily have featured on [ Massive Attack’s ] ‘Blue Lines’ or ‘Mezzanine’, but make no mistake, Iain Foxwell’s work is completely unique. With delicate intricacy, each track forms a standalone identity which is but a small part of the bigger picture. Listen to the EP as a whole and you’ll soon find that like a great piece of art, what you take from it depends on how deep you’re willing to look…

Bad-fotogoraphy.co.uk ~ Beautiful synthwork, full of warmth and moisture, textured sounds, and a floaty almost magical soundscape"

Localsuicide.com ~ Glasgow based producer Iain Foxwell is Holobeams & Broken Machines and is definitely worth your attention. A stunning debut, easy to listen to and completely trippy. Synth galaxy sounds, a warm feeling and beautiful melodies. If you like Boards of Canada, Washed Out and M83, you will certainly like this.

Phoenixandfireworks.com ~ I am instantly reminded of [ starscapes ] and [ galaxies ].

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
