Chill Wave Music: Changing the Electronic Genre

blog post

It may be tough trying to find that certain sound that shines from the rest of a certain genre. Especially when you are looking at any electronic or chill wave style of music. It has become increasingly difficult to get an original artist that wishes to tread his/her own path within the genre. Generic beats, easy synthesizing, and intensely bad lyrics in some cases, have lead to the overall downfall with the electronic genre. - Chill Mix

The latest trend in the electronic music genre is chill wave. Chill wave is casual tones, and very subtle bass. It is extremely relaxing style of electronic that's very thought out and a very big work of art. No generic bombastic beats, no bad lyrics, no mainstream sounding music. It's 100% art.

One of the break through artists in this sub genre of electronic music is Tycho. As Tycho, Hansen blends swirling melodies into vaguely triumphant arcs that crisscross between stuttering beats and vocal samples, creating rolling sonic landscapes that stretch into the horizon.

His album Dive encompasses each of the great aspects of what makes Tycho such a great artist. From the time you begin to listen, you hear a thing that your ears happen to be dying for. The layers and relaxed tone within Dive ensure it is such an easy listen, and is one of the best chill wave albums available.

Another artist which has began to make a scene in chill wave is Teen Daze. When i began to listen to him, I began to get the same kinda of vibes which i had gotten from Tycho. Very chilled out tones, with very subtle bass line that may really relax you in any kind of mood. It is definitely an alteration of pace through the bombastic sounds of the regular techno/electronic music about the radio and mainstream. Additionally it is hypnotizing how relaxed this album are at times.

At times the album can be almost too casual in the vibes and tones it has, but overall the album is absolute gold if you're looking for an artist who wants to become someone on his own and make his own footprint in the arena of electronic music.

These are simply a couple of examples of in which the genre of electronic music is heading. With chill wave, artists now are creating actual artists music, using sounds and samples of around the world to create there music. The future is bright for electronic music genre! - Chill Mix
