We know that it is a difficult task to keep up with every release from every artist, so we’re here to assist you with some gems that “land” in our inboxes. In every edition of The Landing, we intend to highlight some tracks that you may have missed, or perhaps shine a light on new music for you to fall in love with.

Orbiter just dropped their self-titled EP!

Orbiter is composed of Stephen Walking and 7 Minutes Dead, two Monstercat favs. When the duo pair up, the sounds they create are electrifying. They straddle the line of electro house and dubstep and infuse their personal styles in each track. Their EP shows these sides very well. Though each track is very different, they flow together effortlessly. The first track, “We Do” hooked me in with its light Daft Punk feel! If you like the tracks, grab a copy here!


Grant Reveals “Are We Still Young”

Grant’s “Are We Still Young” is poised to be a summer anthem. On this track, Grant truly shows his talent for the melodic future bass style. His sounds mixed with Jessi Mason’s flowery lyrics has me reminiscing about fun times spent eating cotton candy. We invite you to lay back and get lost in your thoughts with Grant’s latest track. If you dig it too – grab a copy by clicking here!

Said The Sky is back with another song featuring his “soaring melodies & emotive basslines.” His newest single features singer Claire Ridgely in the song, “Show and Tell.” Said The Sky does an amazing job of balancing Ridgely’s voice against the drum beats in the song. The song is beautifully crafted from start to finish with a sense of whimsy with melodic beats that sound like they twinkle. “Show and Tell” is the first of many new singles we will be seeing from Said The Sky.

Sander Van Doorn’s Purple Haze gets first official video!

The alter-ego of Sander Van Doorn that shows off his darker side, Purple Haze has finally gotten its first official music video. Coming with the reboot of his alias is track “Neiloj”, which has a stunning visual journey paired with it. The video follows the protagonist through a dark and mysterious forest, with an angel appearing before him like a dream. She captures all attention, leads you on the journey, and then the video climaxes after he grabs her hand. The track itself was a tribute to Sander’s wife, Marjolein, who guided him on his journey to create the Purple Haze alias. Check it out below and let us know what you thought!


Anomalie teases new EP with “Velours”

Anomalie – Facebook | Twitter | SoundCloud

Closing out this week’s edition of The Landing is a unique electronic track from Anomalie, “Velours”. Premiered on NEST HQ, this track just feels so jazzy, with Anomalie showing off the classical piano background with some guitar funk in there too. Blending these elements together has brought an addictive sound to our ears, and this track just has so many new things to catch each time we’ve listened through. The fusion of these different genres Anomalie has in his background is audibly exciting, and it will leave you patiently waiting for the upcoming EP release at the end of the month.
