Siva Prayojan – Lost We Are [Differed Records]
Over the years, Siva Prayojan has made a name for himself in electronic music — a few, actually, under aliases such as Deej, DeLaFlame, and Pavaka. Out now via Differed Records, Siva Prayojan’s latest Destinys Chant EP offers the warm, melodic “Lost We Are,” an aptly-titled tune that epitomizes the beauty of simply letting go and embracing the moment.

A standard progressive house arrangement guides this tune, but the angelic synth melodies sprinkled throughout the production really drive this one home — make some room for bliss in your life and listen to “Perfecta.”
E-Clip – Akasha [JOOF Recordings]
With roots in trance and its psychedelic subgenres, E-Clip nails a harmonious balance between high-energy psytrance and tranquilizing progressive house throughout his catalog, including his latest release, “Akasha” via JOOF Recordings. This track expands and retracts through a variety of vocal, percussion, and melodic elements, all the while bearing an irresistible groove — what a ride.
Nōpi – Hookan Idyll [Sound Avenue]
Ukrainian producer Nōpi has cracked the code to creating organic, delicate sounds throughout his career with a natural ability to tell stories through this music. On “Hookan Idyll” via Sound Avenue, Nōpi demonstrates the ideal progressive house track made for listeners to look within — you can almost feel the presence of holy spirits and smell the fresh air radiating from this one.
Menkee – Black Butterfly (Mattim Remix) [BC2]
It’s always exciting to hear a fabulous song from a newcomer to the scene: Argentinian producer Mattim takes on Menkee’s “Black Butterfly” via BC2 Records for a tantalizing new ride.
