It’s been a very long time coming, but Jeremy Malvin, better known as sonic maestro Chrome Sparks, has announced his debut full length album. I still remember when Chrome Sparks was a duo, so many years ago, but Jeremy Malvin has lead the charge as a solo producer on the Brooklyn project for quite some time now. Let’s turn down with Chrome Sparks new single, Still Think, a ambient electronica, chill hip hop, and jazzy succulent amalgam that leaves us in a blissful trance. Saccharine melodies, opalescent synths, and agile beats take us on a dreamy pining escapade across verdant soundscapes and through shadowy nooks. Chrome Sparks’ eponymous debut album will be out on Counter Records come April 13th. Chrome Sparks will also be kicking off a tour later this month that will take him across the states through end of April. He’ll be stopping at the Great American Music Hall here in San Francisco on April 11th. Stream/download Still Think, here.

Come April 11th, Brooklyn producer Chrome Sparks will be joining Machinedrum in San Francisco with a sure to be mind blowing show at the Great American Music Hall. I last caught Jeremy Malvin at SXSW dropping a ridiculous set that near melted my face off, and I expect the performance on April 11th to have a similarly astonishing effect. He’ll have some fresh ammunition to dazzle us with, including this new track What’s It Gonna Take, featuring Angelica Bess of Body Language on guest vocals, whom he last collaborated with on All Or Nothing. Angelica Bess’ deep soulful, rich entrancing voice makes for the perfect pairing yet again with Chrome Sparks’ fluorescent production on the retrowavey ambient electronic track. What’s It Gonna Take surges and swells,  spreading through every ounce of our body with a purely intoxicating, intensely stimulating effect. The exceptional single is out now on Counter Records. Stream/purchase, here. Learn more about Chrome Sparks’ upcoming spring tour, here.

I’m a bit peeved that I still haven’t received my copy of London Grammar’s latest album, and I’ve reached out to Amazon to inquire about the situation, but at least the UK trio’s new Oh Woman Oh Man remix EP is here to bring me an abundance of sonic bliss. The four track release can be streamed in full on Soundcloud, here. Aside from stacked remixes by Tiga, MK, and DC Breaks, the EP closes with this gorgeous remix by Brooklyn based producer Chrome Sparks, who blew me away when I caught him at SXSW earlier this year. Jeremy Malvin’s rendition of Oh Woman Oh Man is a glistening, rippling pool of sublime synthcore and ambient electronica. It’s a journey into the subconscious, an expansive and profound experience guided by Hannah Reid’s pristine voice. You can purchase London Grammar’s new album Truth Is A Beautiful Thing from their official store, here, or from iTunes, here. Heck, you might receive it before I do. I give you permission to gloat.

Ahead of his trip to Austin for SXSW, Brooklyn producer Jeremy Malvin, better known as Chrome Sparks, has unleashed a floridly entrancing track named Wake. Despite its name, Wake leaves us in a sublimely hypnagogic state. Mesmeric blips and spectral murmurs create a strange yet eerie sense of dopamine bliss. The ambient electronic piece is thoroughly bewitching. It’s an opiate we devour with our ears. Chrome Sparks leads us through a world both familiar and unfamiliar, a divergent dimension which parallels our own. Wake is like our dreams, etched out with bits and pieces from our waking world, but pieced together in unfathomable ways. Grab the track from digital outlets, here. You can also stream Wake via Soundcloud below.

Despite the fact that Jeremy Malvin has been busy with his stellar new project Promises Ltd. alongside Miniature Tigers’ Charlie Brand, the Brooklyn producer continues to find time for his solo project, Chrome Sparks. Whilst touring the US as Chrome Sparks, Jeremy reveals a spectacular new tune named All Or Nothing, which features vocals by Body Language’s Angelica Bess. This warped pulsating mass of eccentric hypnotic electronica charges us up from the get go. All Or Nothing is spaciously punctuated by Angelica Bess’ airy sensual R&B, and the ensuing ride is nothing short of a sublime mind trip. If Little Dragon went all Tourist and Jamie xx on us (simultaneously), they might still fall short of the brilliance of this florid gilded electronic piece. All Or Nothing is out now on Counter Records. Purchase or stream from various other outlets, here.

I was so taken by Promises Ltd.’s debut song Days Of Lavender a month ago that I giddily shared it with endless excitement on my own personal social media. Not only is it music to my ears that Chrome Sparks’ Jeremy Malvin and Miniature Tigers’ Charlie Brand have united to launch a new project, but they’ve proven themselves a dynamic duo with that florescent psychedelic single, which went on to hit the top 10 on Spotify’s Viral 50 Chart. The duo prove more than fruitful on their second song, American Eyes, a mellifluous lilting indietronica taste from their forthcoming self titled debut EP. Promises Ltd. goes fleecy dreamy on the airy, cottony delight as they blend chill disco with analog synthwave. Promises Ltd.’s debut EP will be out August 26th via Majestic Casual. Pre-order, here.

Fred Falke’s indie star studded dance opus It’s A Memory, featuring Elohim and Mansions On The Moon, is receiving some phenomenal remix treatments these days. Last week, we heard a wispy yet grand edit by AMTRAC. This week, we get to lose ourselves in a gorgeously dreamy remix by Brooklyn’s Chrome Sparks. He takes us on a reflective journey with the masterpiece, sending us through mirror lined hallways whose polished glass infinitely echo what once were evanescent memories in prismatic brilliance. The remix will be a part of Fred Falke’s It’s A Memory remix EP, to be released February 26th. Pre-order at various outlets, here.

For an undeniably dope tune, we turn to Brooklyn’s Chrome Sparks, who successfully beckons us to Ride The White Lightning with him with a darkly transfixing dance track. You know when a skilled artist like Chrome Sparks drops a song that’s near ten minutes long that it’s going to be an epic adventure. Travel through synth warped worlds of wonder on this bolt of electricity, which seems to pierce the very fabric of space-time with its ambient electronic depth and suspenseful curves. Tomorrow sees the release of Chrome Sparks’ new EP, Parallelism. But what is tomorrow, and how long is it from now? Even the 9 minutes 30 seconds of Ride The White Lightning seem to hold no mark of time. It seems to last an eternity as much as it feels oddly too short when finally over. You can order three track Parallelism on iTunes.

When I caught wind that Chrome Sparks had remixed Panama’s Jungle, I knew we were in for a spectacular treat. Jungle, is of course, the latest single on Future Classic from Panama, one of my favorite synthpop acts from Down Under. Brooklyn producer Chrome Sparks, an act which I’ve been following since the days it was a duo, takes that summery electronic pop song and gives it the exact abstract fogginess that I love about him. Get ready to glide through dream like ambiance and pillowy clouds of chillwave intoxication.
