Ambient IDM with: Shaun DJ and Boerd #Ambient #IDM #Chill #Electronic

A couple of ambient tracks with the awkward edge of IDM from Shaun DJ and Boerd.

The UK’s Shaun DJ returns with Year 2. This rather prosacially entitled track is about his second year at university. But I’d ignore that. This isn’t the sound of excessive drinking or inappropriate congress, this is a lovely IDM ambient tune. The sound of evenings in the library. Of solitary contemplation. And oddly enough of nature and the outdoors. Electronic strings vie with wood block beats. There’s a widescreen tension throughout the track. And it’s all rather lovely.

It’s been a while but Sweden’s Boerd returns with Look. He’s a classically trained musician performing as part of the Royal Swedish Opera and as a member of Andrea Boceill’s orchestra. There’s a debut album on the way on Anjunadeep next month. But in the meantime let’s go with Look. This is smooth piano-led ambient ruffled by clicking 2step blocky beats. There’s a little vocal to give it the full ethereal treatment. The track manages such calming depths that you just want to dive in and never resurface.
