I've always had a thing for downtempo music - the kind that takes your mind to faraway places.

"Hidden Lake" by Frankie Chills & Herr Schulze aims to transport you to calming, almost extraterrestrial scenery, a secluded lake painted to you by these intricate soundscapes. I love how they described it: "The gentle splashing of water enlivens the cold landscape. Repetitive piano sounds reflect the beautiful monotony of the place, which makes room for every sound in its wintry silence."

This is the kind of next-level electronic music that transcends digital production with cinematic elements, organic piano, and live instruments - in this case, an outstanding saxophone solo mid-track.

Close your eyes and set your mind free.
