Only the most skilled producers on this planet can take an existing track and mold it into an addicting fresh flow while maintaining the intention of the original sound. One of those exemplary producers is Will McNair, better recognized as The 83rd. The Brooklyn based producer’s latest project comes in the form of a mellowed-out remix […]
"Days Gone By" manages to reclaim the concept of a cohesive, magnificent album in a world where pumping and boisterous singles top the charts. The album is a mood piece, capturing a somber, yet painstakingly warm and effervescent environment.
A playlist of sensual jams for your summer romance (or lack thereof)
Up-and-comers Jilbare, BUCKETS!, and Souheil recently connected and flipped Houston Rapper and Kanye West protege Travi$ Scott’s breakout single “Don’t Play” off of his acclaimed debut project, “Days Before Rodeo.” The real success of this remix is owed to the complete change of tone- The original “Don’t Play” is a much more hype; but these […]
Once again it’s Monday, and once again I have some beautiful music to share with all of you. I apologize for my lack of action with this post recently, I have been extremely busy as a recent grad with a new job but will do my best to get consistent again with this post. To […]
Electronic music isn’t just for partying. It can help you through tough times, as well. Whether you’re going through a breakup, your dog died, or are just suffering from post-weekend Monday depression, let these tracks break you down and build you back up again :'( 1. Feverkin- “Turn to Salt” : This heart wrenching, post-breakup […]
Masego & Medacin’s “Shut up and Groove” is the first track off their new Pink Polo EP. Medacin absolutely kills the beat, blending styles to keep things funky and fresh. Smooth sax, glitchy syths, a dope beat and what sounds like a birdcall go well with Masego’s vocals. Very stylish. Soulection labelee Esta. is in […]

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Japanese Wallpaper is making some serious waves in the indie/alternative electronica scene with his self-titled EP. Featuring excellent vocalists on each track, this is truly a beautiful record. The first track on the album, “Between Friends,” is also probably the most upbeat, but the lyrics set the nostalgic tone of the EP. […]
Ease into your Thursday with this brand new remix from LUCA LUSH
CloZee is a female producer based out of Toulouse, France and just released one of the BEST tracks I’ve heard so far this summer. “Koto” has strong oriental vibes, featuring a three-stringed guitar (known as a shamisen in Japan or sanxian in China) over a fun trap beat. The emphasis is on the melody as […]
Future trap innovator and occasional Djemba collaborator London Future just dropped “It’s Okay Girl,” one of the most unique tracks I’ve heard in a while. Flipping the classic Usher track into a fun, hi-hats n’ deep synth vibe-sesh works brilliantly for a while, but Future isn’t satisfied with just one style. After a buildup halfway […]
Another week of R&B&E, with this weeks selection featuring some of the protein from the Soulection crew.
MEDASIN is a young up-and-comer from Dallas who knows how to make some pretty eclectic trap. “GOLD” builds with snares, violins, and mixed vocals before dropping hard with some of that brass we all pretend to be sick of. Luckily he uses it sparingly, focussing more on the synths and heavy beat. The breakdown around […]
Try to make it through this song without crying.
This weeks R&B&E Monday focuses on sounds from growing online labels such as Film Noir and zensupremacy.
Two of the biggest things to come out of 2014 was Porter Robinson’s cinematic debut album Worlds and the equally talented and sparkly Moving Castle collective. Porter Robinson has already voiced his support for the collective and even popped up last week at Moving Castle’s SXSW showcase to do a guest DJ set. New member […]
URL based collective, Moving Castle, has easily become a force to be reckoned with in the short year that they have been around. In their quick rise to prominence they have garnered support from the likes of Skrillex and a whole host of music blogs (including this one!), they successfully released a limited collaboration with […]
This week's list is all about textures, and even though my monitors are fried right now, these songs managed to keep their beautifully layers.
A few tracks I vibed with. A future bass/chill trap remix from Dugong Jr up first. From Miami Horror‘s “Real Slow,” this remix is an upbeat yet smooth wind-down track. Dugong Jr, the Melbourne-based artist, is one of the many killer artists in the Moving Castle crew. Slowing the beat down a tad more, and picking up the sensual […]
