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 …

Friday Free For All: LA Pool Party Edition

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“.
DOWNLOAD HERE

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

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 …

Friday Free For All: Schlachthofbronx and Brenmar

Schlachthofbronx – Rave and Romance
Schlachthofbronx have a complex name, but their musical mission is simple: BASS. And lots of it. We’re talking about deep, eardrum pounding, gut-jiggling bass; the kind where if you’re in a club and the DJ is playing Schlachthofbronx and there’s an earthquake, you wouldn’t even know because everything is already shaking.
The Munich-based duo released their third full length album, entitled …

Pharrell – “Happy (Cousin Cole Reggae Mix)”
Nobody has been more ubiquitous in pop charts for the past year than Pharrell Williams. From “Get Lucky” to “Blurred Lines” to “Happy”, Williams is in cultural beastmode once again.
As it tends to happen with wildly popular songs, “Happy” has been played to death in recent months and at this point, I know, you’re probably sick of it …

Friday Free For All: Popcaan and D’Angelo Remixes

Popcaan – “Everything Nice” Remix
Popcaan’s minimalist dancehall burner “Everything Nice” has been burrowing its way into my brain and laying eggs for the past couple weeks. When I first heard it I thought, oh, that’s a nice tune, but with every listen I’m growing more and more convinced that it might just be the my favorite single of 2014.

Popcaan‘s name is becoming increasingly familiar …

Ballin’ Jack — “Found A Child” (Monk One Re-Edit)

There’s a decent chance that you don’t know the ’70s jazz-rock sextet known as Ballin’ Jack, but I’d be willing to wager you’re familiar with the guitar riff from their song “Found A Child“.

It’s quite possibly the funkiest 8 second guitar loop ever committed to wax and years after its initial release, would become the foundation …
