Architects & Waves:  A New Compilation Featuring the Next Generation of Om Artists

Architects & Waves: A New Compilation Featuring the Next Generation of Om Artists

Since it’s inception in 1995, OM Records has become a staple name in the electronic dance music community. From the universally beloved deep house compilation, OM Lounge, to Mark Farina’s critically acclaimed trip-hop series, Mushroom Jazz, the San Francisco-based imprint has always been a tastemaker in the industry. Their ability to evolve with the music landscape has been a big part of their success and their newest VA compilation is ushering in a new era of OM.

Architects & Waves explores the intersections of indie rock, chill-wave, minimal, down-tempo, and disco. Featuring 16 unreleased tracks recorded exclusively for this project, the album is the result of a vigorous yearlong A&R pursuit to find the next generation of electronic music trailblazers. You may not recognize all of the artists, but once you listen to these songs you will be learning their names quicker than you can say “Architects & Waves.”

An effortless listen from beginning to end, every song begs your attention in Architects & Waves. From Tone of Arc’s emotionally fueled “Waiting Room” to sexy chill-wave sounds on “You’re Not the One” by Phages, the vocal-infused tracks are intelligently written and aurally gratifying. Other tunes are compositionally driven and distinct sounds set them apart from the rest, like the jazzy synths on Psychemagik’s “Chimera” or Shiny Objects’ disco-laden edit of “Well Absolutely” by Body Language. And if you’re in the mood to dance, then you can get down to the party vibes on a sharp remix of “All Night” by Sleight of Hands or shake to the endless galactic grooves on Adnan Sherif’s “Sky Toucher”. Whether you’re singing along or dancing around, Architects & Waves is an all-purpose compilation that is an easy and enjoyable listen for fans of all kinds of music. Sit back, relax and enjoy 🙂
