One Step From Eden OST // Interview with STEEL_PLUS

STEEL_PLUS is an electronic music producer from Japan who has created the soundtracks to Blue Revolver, Maiden Spell, and One Step From Eden. While the first to games are both bullet hell / shoot'em up titles One Step From Eden is an ambitious 3-way genre hybrid. A rouge-like deck builder with a real time grid-based battle mechanic and a notoriously punishing learning curve. This soundtrack goes. It goes in a lot of different ways but primarily it just absolutley goes. Track 34: Garoad - Chaos in Paradise is very reminicent of Yoko Shimomura's infamous Parasite Eve battle theme Arise Within You. Much of it reminds of a higher BPM version of the...

Holiday Girl

chiptune cute electronic jazz kawaii

Holiday Girl

"Holiday Girl" by Kshiraki is a soundtrack to the 'chillest Mode 7 SNES racing game' never made. These nine tracks are perfect for staring out of a window and daydreaming. Kshiraki is an electronic artist from Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan with a sassy, sophisticated sound and a charming back catalogue. This is some sunny afternoon pack-a-picnic-and-hold-hands-with-your-homies type shit. Applying jazz fundamentals to chiptune compositions has always been a winning formula. The precise and deliberate constraints in which tracker music is made make riffing on a square wave inherently interesting. Favourite tracks: "Morning Sun" and "Train Travel".  FFO: Derris-Kharlan, Keiji Tamagishi and Elektrobear.  Holiday Girl by KshirakiFind more of their music below!  kshiraki2.bandcamp.com

Wonder Underground

Wonder Underground

Multi genre artist ぷにぷに電機 aka punipunidenki aka Puniden creates music spanning a wide range of influences but what remains consistent throughout every release is a sense of elegance. It is generally quite difficult to find future funk or city pop built from the ground up with original vocals but on many of Puniden's albums this is achieved with incredible attention to detail. A good example can be seen in Puniden's collaboration with vapor legend ミカヅキBIGWAVE on the "MIRAI addiction" EP just a few months prior to the release we are here to discuss. "Wonder Underground" is a latin jazz inspired 4 song EP with outstanding vocal work and warm playful instrumentals. Bedroom pop and breathy bossa...

Goddess of the Hollow

On April 14th, multi genre electronic producer City Girl dropped two full length releases in one day, "Sirens of the Formless" and "Goddess of the Hollow". While similar at a glance these releases differ wildly in execution and overall tone. Sirens of the Formless is laid back and sexy with percussive loops that do a perfect job of driving the songs forward without ever once overshadowing the melody work.  Goddess of the Hollow sees the return of long time collaborative partner tiffi, a singer/ songwriter from Sydney, Australia, who provides some very charming vocals on tracks 2, 3 and 7. These tracks, while fun and sparkly, are also dark...
