Guy Gerber & Puff Daddy – “11 11″

The long-rumored collaboration between the unlikely duo of Guy Gerber and Puff Daddy (as he is apparently now known as again) is finally here and it’s probably not what you’re expecting.
Gerber is an Israeli-born producer is primarily known for his cerebral tech house productions.
And that’s pretty much what you’re getting with “11 11” — it’s a Guy …

Fade To Mind Edits
The Fade To Mind crew, whose members hail mostly from Los Angeles, have been responsible for some of the most forward-thinking music of the past few years.
From Kingdom’s Vertical XL EP to Kelela’s Cut 4 Me mixtape to Nguzunguzu’s Skycell release, Fade To Mind has consistently demonstrated a knack for making cutting edge music that always defies traditional pigeonholing.
This past week …

Laura Mvula with the Metropole Orkest – “Make Me Lovely”
Soul chanteuse Laura Mvula burst onto the scene last year with her debut album, “Sing To The Moon”, an album of prodigious grandeur that felt both timeless and out of time.

Syd Arthur – “Hometown Blues” (Psychemagik Remix)

Pro tip: if you’re an artist in the market for a remixer, get Psychemagik.
With a Midas-like touch, the UK duo have the uncanny knack for turning any kind of source material into dancefloor gold.
Their latest act of remix-wizardry is a reworking of Syd Arthur’s “Hometown Blues”, transforming this psychedelic rock tune into a bass-heavy cosmic roller.

Seekae – Test & Recognise (Flume Re-work)
In a fairly short period of time, Australian beatmaker Flume has established himself as one of the most consistently exciting artists in electronic music.
I was already a fan of his work, but seeing Flume’s energetic live set at FYF Fest last year made me a true believer.
There’s definitely a “Flume sound” but it’s a spectrum: he can lay …

Regional Garland – “Chillin’ Out” (Poolside Edit)
One of the most striking aspects of Poolside’s debut album, “Pacific Standard Time”, was how fully formed their whole “poolside” ethos was right from the start.
Everything fit a very specific vibe – from the name, their laid back sound, and even down to where they recorded the album (in a studio next to a pool, natch).
“Chillin’ Out” isn’t …

Grimes – “Go”
It’s been a couple of years since we’ve heard any new material from Grimes, but with anticipation of her new album growing (tentatively slated for a September 9th release), we were laced with a new track yesterday called “Go“.

The track has a much trappier (for lack of a better term) feel than we’ve heard from Grimes in the past. It’s not …

Ryn Weaver: Artist You Should Know

ryn weaver artworks-000083273604-5o431v-t500x500

As I write this, Ryn Weaver’s “OctaHate” has been out on Soundcloud for less than 24 hours and has already amassed 80,000 plays. This is the internet version of overnight stardom.

Having never heard Ryn Weaver’s name 24 hours ago, it would be easy to brush this all off as hype for the sake of hype, but as I listen to “OctaHate” for the fifth …

Kate Tempest: Artist You Should Know

Posted June 23, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 983 views]
kate tempest

Kate Tempest is the best rap lyricist you’ve never heard.
It’s a bold statement, and I’m generally averse to anything described with the words “spoken word poetry” (Saul Williams being the lone exception) but Kate Tempest’s album “Everybody Down“ grabbed me by the throat in the first 15 seconds and would not let go.
Now I can’t get enough.
With a background as a playwright and …

Friday Free For All: Banks Remixes + YG & Blanco

Friday free for all square

Banks – “Brain” and “Goddess”  Remixes
I would venture to guess that in the past 12 months I’ve played more music by Banks than any other artist.
This is owed largely to the LA-based songstress’ talents as a singer and songwriter, but credit also goes to the consistent trickle of remixes of her work that always seem to keep things fresh.
In the run up to the …
