A gorgeous birth to a now striving force in vaporwave music, 'Atarashī Hi no Tanjō' can only be seen in my eyes as the greatest ambient album of all time.
From its rolling samples of Japan's sleepless transit systems through to the intimate use of vocal samples throughout, the dynamic duo of HKE and t e l e p a t h cannot be praised enough for this modern classic, ever evoking that same sense of mystique I caught when I stepped off the sub-express to Moriguchi for the very first time.

Music heads have been fiending for "Glisten" since Joy O's Dekmantel Mix from a few years ago. That heavy bassline and signature Tessela chopped vocals were seared into our memories. It was worth the wait. Lanark Artefax's "Intimidating Stillness Mix" of "Touch Absence" is a futuristic twist of his track from Whities 011, one of the best EPs of 2017. Shout out to Nic Tasker and Whities for having such a selective ear and for making these available digitally for all to enjoy. Edward
