Chill Wave Music: Changing the Electronic Genre

It may be tough trying to find that one sound that stands out from the rest of some genre. Especially when it comes to any electronic or chill wave type of music. It has become increasingly difficult to find an original artist that wants to tread his/her own path within the genre. Generic beats, easy synthesizing, and very bad lyrics in some instances, have lead to the overall downfall from the electronic genre. - Best Chill

The newest trend in the electronic music genre is chill wave. Chill wave is relaxed tones, and very subtle bass. It is quite relaxing style of electronic that's very thought out and a very big work of genius. No generic bombastic beats, no bad lyrics, no mainstream sounding music. It's 100% art.

One of the break through artists in this sub genre of electronic music is Tycho. As Tycho, Hansen blends swirling melodies into vaguely triumphant arcs that crisscross between stuttering beats and vocal samples, creating rolling sonic landscapes that stretch into the horizon.

His album Dive encompasses all the great aspects of the thing that makes Tycho such a great artist. As soon as you begin to listen, you hear something that your ears have been dying for. The layers and care-free tone within Dive ensure it is such an easy listen, and is one of the best chill wave albums available.

Another artist which includes began to make a scene in chill wave is Teen Daze. When I first began to listen to him, I began to get the same kinda of vibes i had gotten from Tycho. Very stress-free tones, with very subtle bass line that can really relax you in any sort of mood. It is definitely a change of pace from your bombastic sounds of the regular techno/electronic music on the radio and mainstream. It is also hypnotizing how relaxed this album are at times.

At times the album can be almost too laid back in the vibes and tones that it has, but on the whole the album is absolute gold if you are looking for an artist who wants to become someone on his own and make his own footprint in the realm of electronic music.

These are simply a couple of examples of the location where the genre of electronic music is heading. With chill wave, artists now are coming up with actual artists music, using sounds and types of around the world to create there music. The future is bright for electronic music genre! - Best Chill
