Scottish-born, Canada-based artist Aether today ushered in the New Year with a stunning downtempo-meets-garage single, “Sapphire,” on Monstercat.
Following a string of releases inspired by nature and astral elements last year, Aether injects his fascination with gemstones into the new record.
The beauty of the sapphire and its illuminating essence drives the track with ethereal beats and textured percussion, putting Aether’s passion for ambient-influenced soundscapes on full display. With a sonic range spanning lofi to contemporary, fans can look forward to more impressive arrangements from Aether later this year on his anticipated debut Monstercat EP.
Aether shares, “In all forms, light is captured.”
At a young age, Aether was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa and pronounced legally blind. Despite his visual impairment, he has overcome hurdles to continue making music by using specialized audible tools that help to guide him through his production process.
Since, he’s cemented himself as a producer and composer to watch, scoring popular video game titles and releasing diverse musical projects that have amassed millions of streams.
