Florida-based musician Kyle Piety AKA Bit Deff creates gorgeous, textured beat-driven downtempo electronica. Not exactly ambient what with the plethora of rhythms and drum tracks, but more relaxing than a night on the town that’s for sure. His brand of music is positively Balearic, and any of these tracks would work in a Cafe Del Mar compilation — which isn’t a dis. Because I happen to love that brand of chillout music.
A live DJ set from 2011 mixing techno, dub, and IDM tunes that can warm up even the coldest room in the planet. And it stands the test of time.
This is not just a collection of music, it’s a poignant valedictory speech to the band’s peers. It’s a hymn to the raucous joys of wasted youth.

9 stillborn musical ideas that he decided would make more sense releasing as a free gift rather than forever gathering dust on his hard drive. Ranging from relaxing ambient to cut-up chillwave, to ’80s synthpop, to instrumental hiphop and IDM-influenced glitch hop. Similar Objects swims through a variety of styles, all united by his taste for meaty grooves and glitchy textures.
An hour-long performance of lush and relaxing ambient / electronic / world music. It reminds me very pleasantly of Dead Can Dance what with their heavily reverb’d instrumentation, the ethnic percussion, the soaring female vocals, and the acoustic guitar embellishments.
