Sunrise From The Treetops is the remarkable debut of Hinkstep (Jonas Tegenfeldt), a talented musician and audio engineer born and raised in the northern part of Sweden. After discovering the “other side” of Infected Mushroom’s groundbreaking album Converting Vegetarians, Jonas was hooked on the manifold possibilities of downtempo psychedelia. His boundless experiments in the years that followed eventually gave rise to a refreshingly eclectic style further influenced by the likes of Porcupine Tree and Younger Brother. Now, having cultivated a bold creative vision, Hinkstep is ready to share the sublime experience of this unique album with the world.

Neto – Aquatikon

Neto - Aquatikon

Neto submerges the listener in the vast inner landscapes of chill music with Aquatikon, the follow-up album to “Anomalies”, Neto’s minimal tech downtempo hip hop opus, and the debut release from Ektoplazm’s new downtempo sublabel, Omnitropic. This closely connected thematic album explores the levels below the surface of the world’s oceans, taking inspiration from mornings on the boat docks, sunrise on the pier, sailing in storms, and charting new territory. At times emotional, melodic, brooding, abstract, spacious, and open, Aquatikon is intended for the morning chill room, when you aren’t quite down, but you are wanting to level out, to get amniotic, to curl up and float into the waveforms. A distinct sonar sound used in dub effect is a fixture in each track, mimicking the navigational technology used by many underwater animals. This is music for neuronauts and mariners alike.

  1. No Longer At Anchor
  2. Lighthouse
  3. Navigation By Sonar Only
  4. Siren Island
  5. Undertow
  6. Saline Solution
  7. Transoceanic Current
  8. Bioluminescent
