Nominal takes elements of dubstep, hip-hop, dnb, garage and any other type of bass music and mixes it all with floaty analogue soundscapes to create super new-sounding, amazing music. Nominal is also a part of Future Sound Collabs and is helping them turn heads with their deep yet minimalistic style of bass music.
Down to the way his tracks sound we always thought Nominal was probably a retired garage producer, hes not, he is a 19-year-old college student from America. Heavy.

Although some of his tracks sound like house music, Carlyon seems to focus more on producing floaty hip-hop and other forms of downtempo music. Mostly happy but sometimes dark and thoughtful, the music from Carlyon is definitely experimental yet always easy to listen to.
Like a lot of users at Audiotool the number of followers and visits to Carlyon’s page has no relation to the quality of the music that he puts out. If you are unfamiliar with the tracks from Carlyon here is your chance to check him out since he is definitely one to watch.

Down to his unique style and big breakbeat sound heliotrope received attention with the first track that he published. There is a lot of contrast in the tracks from heliotrope, big yet subtle, tech-influenced yet organic and insane yet always carefully made. Heliotrope carries the same unique style through all of his tracks, expect dub, massive basslines and psychedelic synthesisers throughout. Heliotrope also has an account on Soundcloud. Check him out!
