Though Abyss is our first time sharing Notaker’s music on IHM, we’re no strangers to the producer’s compelling electronic tapestries, having been entranced by his dark melodic music in the past. The producer from St. Louis recently signed to Mau5trap, a sure sign that we’re not the only ones impressed by his sonic wizardry. Perhaps he caught the attention of Joel Zimmerman because his music is in part inspired by Deadmau5. Abyss is a cinematic masterpiece that fuses inky pulsing progressive house with deeply abstruse ambient electronica. Within that pastiche can be found various fragments that evoke Boards of Canada’s vast expanse, Aphex Twin’s acidic taste, and even the 80′s synthcore movement that has had a massive revival lately. Abyss is indeed a yawning chasm filled with dramatically gripping electronic magnificence. The single is out now and can be purchased from major outlets, here. For more of Notaker’s music, visit his Soundcloud, here. Abyss can also be streamed via Soundcloud below.

Mau5trap signed Canadian DJ and production whiz ATTLAS returns with a gripping new tune after the release of his 5 track Bloom EP just a few months ago. It’s easy to predict what sort of riveting ride we’re in for when the song he offers up is named Blood Work. Sure enough, this dark bristling, moody captivating techno and deep house spectacular is a blood pumping listen. It features Chelsea Jade on breathy ethereal vocals. Blood Work hypnotizes and exhilarates. Grab the jam from major outlets, here. ATTLAS will be hitting up a slew of cities on his Storyline Live Tour next month. In fact, he’ll be kicking it off at 1015 Folsom with a free holidiay party right here in San Francisco on December 2nd! RSVP, here.

Mau5trap just dropped the fifth volume of their We Are Friends compilation, and on it is this wicked sick track from French producer NEUS. I Need You is a dark visceral, metallic edged electro bass thriller featuring vocals by Sweden’s Victoria Dogan. I Need You heaves and lurches, sending intensive jolts of electricity straight through my cortex. Head over to iTunes to snag mau5trap’s latest compilation or cop each individual track on the release.

I’ve come to realize that I seem to be fond of every track on which Toronto’s Delaney Jane is a guest vocalist. Her gorgeous voice is simply bewitching. But we have Delaney Jane to thank as much for that as much as fellow Canadian REZZ on the producer’s new Mau5trap released dark techno track Lost, a densely pulsing and moodily volatile riveter. The slow churning song whorls seductively, building with sweet tension. Its brambly edges fire out searing tingles alongside a foreboding but desirous atmosphere that leaves me restless and wired. Stream Lost on Spotify above or Soundcloud below. Lost comes from REZZ’s new four track The Silence Is Deafening EP, just released last Friday. Purchase on iTunes.

Earlier this year, a mysterious producer named ATTLAS released an EP, Siren, on Joel Zimmerman’s Mau5trap label, proceeding to sweep us away with sublimely atmospheric music. The producer is set to follow up that excellent released with a new EP, named Scene. Sit down, get comfortable, and buckle your seat belt, because EP track Beside is going to rocket you to the stars with its cascading synths, sharp jabs, and emotion soaked vocals, delivered by Kristian Attard. It’s as cinematic as ambient electronic production gets, a moving, stirring song that whisks you on a journey through deep, aching valleys and high, cathartic peaks. ATTLAS’ Scene EP will be out August 7th. Pre-order on iTunes.

I shared this sick track with you a week ago, but the music video gives me a much appreciated opportunity to feature producers Eekkoo and Casper Whirlin’s single again, in all its wicked, hypnotizing goodness. Elysium features vocals by Sweden’s Sailor & I, an IHM favorite who always enamors me with his slick, easily recognized vocals. There’s a thrilling degree of darkness to the pulsing, intense electronic track. That edginess is carried over into the new video. Elysium will be on Eekkoo’s EP, Hell Is Other People, out mid-October on Mau5trap.

I’ve been a fan of Sweden’s Sailor & I for over a year now, and it’s nearly excruciating waiting for new music from the artist, as he’s rarely given us new tunes over that year. But what he has gave me has enchanted me beyond words. Well, for now, I’m quite happy, because Sailor & I is featured on new track Elysium, from producers Eekkoo and Casper Whirlin. The pulsing electronic treat and Sailor & I’s always soothing, smooth vocals create a mesmerizing soundscape on the song, which will be on Canadian producer Eekkoo’s new EP, Hell Is Other People, due out mid-October on Mau5trap.
