munro is a new name in my electronic discoveries book, but damn I love everything about Ian's work.

His new single "Pineal" dwells in a sonic world that is a crossover between electro, UK garage, progressive and French house. A beautiful and upbeat place to be. By incorporating a diverse range of vocal samples as harmonies, the artist creates a unique narrative that centers around themes of self-discovery and awakening.

Over the past five years, the artist, who hails from New Zealand, has been diligently developing and refining his musical style and everything has matured to this perfect moment in time which marks the release of "Pineal" (via Quality Goods Records).

For me, it was love of first sound. The song is marked with the feel of future nostalgia, characterized by a fusion of influences from the 90s and 00s with a playful and organic touch. I love the fact that munro incorporates elements of garage and indie electronic in his sound while keeping a very sophisticated and polished aesthetic.

A perfect addition to our alternative dancefloor playlist.
