Fountain Child - 12TH
Currently based in Shanghai, China is the UK born producer, Fountain Child. This is my first encounter and I quickly became hooked by his mesmerizing beats and fresh take on combining ambient and lo-fi house.
His track, “12TH” from the ep, This Story Is No Longer Available showcases his unique style and refreshing sound. Opening the track is a textured environment, with birds chirping in the background and an ambient swell at the center of the track - you think you know what to expect but you absolutely don’t. Moments later, we’re introduced to an uptempo, lo-fi house type of beat and a vocal sample that all pair amazingly well. The beat adds a fun and memorable feel to the song, giving it a new level of depth. I look forward to Fountain Child’s future releases given his fresh and welcoming approach.
Yu Yi is the result of a year of ‘figuring out my sound.’ Aside from the emotional attachment I have for this piece of music it really was a series of trail and errors of finding the right musicians, getting the right tone and producing it to a place that I was happy with it.
Enjoy these new hallucinations from no known author; a machined mega-puzzle of miscalculated patterns, automatic failures and lost coffee house betas.

The way the track breathes is quite unique - stopping and going, allowing the piano melodies to find their place. Underneath these melodies is the sounds of the outdoors - birds chirping and a light breeze passing by.
The piano melodies that echo through Andrew Gialanella’s meditative piece, “Drift” are incredibly breathtaking and provide a comforting atmosphere for anyone who listens.
And then there’s the unique way Tourist integrates vocal samples - it’s as if they become an instrument all on their own, floating throughout the track giving another beautiful layer of depth to the already astounding song.
There’s something about the vocal melodies that transports me back to warm summer evenings where there was a care in the world.
This song aims to provide a progressive listen that mimics the wonder of seeing this event for the first time.
The song features a colorful melody that bounces throughout the song and echoes a feeling of hope and inspiration.
Liam J Hennessy’s latest track, “Emerge” is quite the sonic piece as it features multiple layers of well crafted instrumentation that will transport the listener to another time and dimension.
