Cosmic, The New Music Genre

A new genre is emerging in music that is naturally a product of moving into the future. Often described as spacey or space music cosmic takes the elements of futuristic music and fuses it with its own unique sound.

Cosmic music can range in the sound and the music can be simple or complex, it can be instrumental or electronic. Sometimes it includes melodic, harmonic, or rhythmic features, and is less formed around traditional compositions. You can find elements of cosmic music throughout other genres.

The closest genre to cosmic would be electronic music and cosmic music is typically created with the same musical instruments as hip-hop and electronic. A song or artist would fit into the category using both the instrumental and the vocals to invoke a spacey type of feeling.

Steve Sande, a freelance writer considers space music to be “New Age,” and writes that “Space music [is] also known as ambient, chill-out, mellow dub, down-tempo.”

Examples of cosmic artists:

-Travis Scott
-Kid Cudi
-Juice WRLD
