FM Attack - Corazon

 For walking about on cold days.

Dark Chillwave: Future Holograms

Future Holograms presents an intersection between the airy, cold tones associated with 'Chillwave', but incorporating some synthy stabs and darker elements in some of their tracks. Vocals are also floating around, which works for most tracks. Good background or upbeat resting music.

Chillwave: Petite Casket - Toxic

Some tracks are reminiscent of the haziness I loved in High Tides.

Future Unlimited - Offbeat Music Vol. 2

While trying to track down individual songs and remixes from Future Unlimited's "Offbeat Music, Vol. 2",

I found the video for Ryan Paris - Dolce Vita:

 It's a catchy, carefree 80's track, but what jumps out immediate from the comments section is the contrast between people of the 80s and the modern era, encapsulated by comments like these:

 That was the life 1983 was really a dolce vita. Now we have this dark world with tech every where.

Other point to the lack of wearable technology that people defer to when they're uncomfortable, nervous, or bored. Interesting to think that we're living in a non-stylized cyberpunk dystopia the 80's themselves imagined.

SLOW MAGIC & Friends

I highly recommend seeing SLOW MAGIC live: between the live, upbeat drum versions of his tracks and the LED mask, it was a great experience to see live in Toronto this past November.

While listening to his discography recently, I also noticed that Slow Magic - Feel Flow would mix very well with Purity Ring - Belispeak. See for yourself:
