Now we have yet another release from the Monstercat record label, what could it be? Getting back to work after a mini-break, young American producer Notaker brings us his third release from Monstercat, “Shimmer”. A rather new producer to be featured on MiR, Notaker has already grabbed our attention with his style, where he warps atmospheric sounds to generate a soothing and awesome ambient beat. We aren’t the only ones who have taken notice, as superstar producers Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz as well as film scoring legend Hans Zimmer has even given Notaker praise.
Alright Notaker, your “Shimmer” is absolutely fantastic. After one listen through it is definitely being added to our daily playlist in our office. Definitely one of the more ambient-inspired tracks that came across my desk, “Shimmer” starts off heavy with futuristic driven synths, and dives further into the futuristic unknown. “Shimmer” creates an experience that doesn’t just entraps you. It listens to you. It creates a wondrous layer of bliss and another layer of mystery right on top. I’m going to stream this tonight while we play No Man’s Sky, just to bring out the atmospheric theme.
