IDM is an incredibly expansive term; too intricate for a definitive box. However, the genre manages nonetheless to sculpt a distinctive sound; with the careful construction of different influences combining into its own unique artwork. IDM creates spaces to move and grow, to experiment in the world of electronic music and create an experimental dance; with the evidence that many artists explore timbre and tone in a way that can often come across as deeply personal.
Finding new music is always a joy, and with a massive amount of media being released each day sometimes true gems can be lost in the mix. Like with our Synthwave Roundup, we decided to spend some time scouring through the new releases on the ever giving platform Bandcamp – to share with you all some fantastic IDM albums to add to your playlist.
