Following up our latest EP, here is a sneak preview of the new Frau Holle album. Featuring ten electronica tracks combining the sounds of 21st Century chilled trance and house music with classic analog synthesizer music from the 1970s and 1980s, the album will be released on 14th July for this year’s Netlabel Day.
Our latest Best Bytes compilation is now available, featuring another 19 Toucan tracks from the last decade of our back catalogue. Toucan Music’s trademark uplifting house music sound is well represented, with future house flavour courtesy of Notch, melodic trance from Mark Burt, and upfront progressive from Aerologic, as well as some forays into other genres such as chillout. As with all Best Bytes compilations, the older tracks have been remastered for the album. You can grab it from our album page with all of the tracks available to download free of charge individually or as one album ZIP file!
Two years after his last LP, Nocturnia, Psychadelik Pedestrian returns with a brand new 10 track album combining his trademark blend of chillout, trance, breaks and trip hop. Featuring a slightly mellower sound and focussing on instrumental tracks, Fifteen features strong chilled grooves in new tracks Catching Rays and Breaking Waves as well as Starlight, making an appearance here after previously being released on an EP. Also included is plenty of atmospheric orchestral action, with Into The Ether setting the scene, The Dead Of Night introducing a slightly eerie feel with sinister strings and Sleep Tight bringing the album to a climax with some dirty electronic sounds. Find out more and download all of the tracks free of charge on our album page.

A new compilation of 19 Toucan Music tracks is now available at the Free Music Archive.

Many of the older tracks have been remastered exclusively for the compilation, which is available here.
Psychadelik Pedestrian returns with two brand new downtempo tracks today, his first since the Transient LP. The first, Cosmos, begins with tingling arpeggio synth patterns and slowly builds to a crescendo, finishing with a rhythmic, reverberating drum pattern. Pacific is a downtempo instrumental track built around soaring pads in a similar style to previous chillout favourites Night Beach and Coral Reef. Both tracks are available from the release page here.
