If you need some chill beats, and you do, then settle in with the latest from SublimeCloud. I am in love with these beats, especially after spending a hundred hours or so in Pokemon Moon. I really want to go back to Pokemon Moon as well, but I also have to like, live my life. I can't do both unfortunately.Read More
The long awaited reunion of beat maker SublimeCloud and rapper SkyBlew is now out. Grand, colorful beats flow along with SkyBlew's trademakr, upbeat rhymes. You can grab the album for $5 over on the duo's bandcamp page. You can also hear one of my personal favorite tracks from Destined: The Rebirth on the latest episode, SUBCON podcast 40. Be sure to hear a few more of my thoughts on the album on there as well.
An engrossing collection of chill hip hop beats inspired by the sights and sounds of anime, video games, and various other things that one may describe as 'kawaii'
I definitely have to keep this album in my pocket as part of my heatwave emergency kit. The nourishing chillwave beats from SublimeCloud are the perfect respite to the constant yet unusual heatwaves that infect my home city at any given moment.
Despite the consistent soothing nature of the album, Delusions of Grandeur holds quite a bit of variety. Opening track, "Numinous Travels," sounds somewhere between a slow dance ballad and a race track. "Sunsets With You" veers more traditionally with winding vocal samples and a mix of traditional sounds and future beats.
The final track, "See You Tomorrow," Everyone, is as grandiose as the EPs title implies. Soaring vocals, a deep bassline, and the constant smattering of samples and riffs keep the four minute song interesting right on through to the end of the album. I'd be glad to hear this track at the conclusion of any harrowing journey.
The Digi Destined strike with their debut album of videogame and anime inspired hip hop, SkyBlew x SublimeCloud - Episode 1: Clouded Dreams & Beautiful Memories. I've been rocking the gamer anthem "The Lame Gamers" all through the summer heat. Pokemon represent in the digiworld with "HM02" a track that got me through some late night egg hatching sessions in Pokemon Y.
The full album is a great blend of enthusiastic game remixes, anime remixes, and original sounds that are the perfect accompaniment to SkyBlew's variety of rhymes. So far this is a top album this year, especially if the judge is amount of time's I've rewound and replayed tracks.
Digging through SublimeCloud's SoundCloud has already yielded great treasure with this hip hop, chill, glitch remix of likely my favorite music from the Mother/Earthbound series, the winter theme of "Snowman". Can not go wrong with this one. The relaxed vibe of the original shines in a new way thanks to the rushing drums and pulsing sounds presented. This track definitely makes me dream of the next time someone drops a full on Mother or Earthbound album.
Another new single from Sublime Cloud. This time it's some electronic anime inspired hip hop beats. Chill out to this new single. Keep them coming SublimeCloud! Expect more posts about him as I dig through his Soundcloud page in my spare time.
