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. […]
Do you play the piano? Percussion? Do you sing four-part harmony in a barbershop quartet? Or are you adept at producing Electronic Music (i.e. techno tech-house, deep-house, or house music) on your computer using the latest software plugins? Whether it’s a piano riff, drum solo, vocal twist, or blistering EDM instrumental, YOU have the opportunity […]
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 […]
A real standout this week was “DUFFEL BAGS (DUFFEL RIDIM)” from LIL TEXAS, who hails from- you guessed it: Los Angeles. The track basically repeats the same vocal line over and over, but it’s the eclectic production that make this track so fun. Really interesting, deep synths and smooth transitions and hi hat work keep […]
Culture Prophet talks with us about his new album Lies & Deceit.
We talk with Anna Lunoe about Touring, Studio Life, and the Australian equivalent of a Raccoon.
Crookers takes the main floor at Pacha NYC this Friday with all new tracks from his latest album Sixteen Chapel.
Alexander Lewis’ “Day 3- Ex’s” starts off with some smooth piano chords that give way to interesting synths over a heavy, manipulated beat. But 1 minute in, the song really kicks off with another build that leads to a much heavier, brass filled drop. It’s a bit heavy to vibe to, but the pace is […]
This week there’s a wide range of tracks that showcase the broad spectrum Deep House covers
For this week’s Funkadelic Friday post, experimental glitch influenced tracks are blended with varying omnitempo beats. The playlist starts energetic and progressively gets less aggressive and feels more wavy. With the proper sound system, each track will push the speakers to its limits with massive ranges of sound. Many producers featured have under 1000 Soundcloud followers, […]
Young Australian Duo Two Can & frequent edm vocalist Father Dude recently collaborated on “Double Edge.” Father Dude’s gorgeous pipes accentuate the tropical, wonderfully mixed electronic elements. Another josh pan joint makes the list; this time, on “perfect,” josh samples piero umiliani, well, perfectly, mixing the beautiful guitar chords with a smooth hip hop beat. […]
I’m back in Belgium and fighting to keep a “responsible” sleep schedule. Being surrounded by forests and old structures has me in a different mood than I’ve been in the last month or so. It’s interesting how your surroundings affect how you feel…Anyways these tracks aren’t necessarily gloomy, but it’s been a bit foggy outside, […]
Fresh off Heissmusik’s Transcendent Tunes label, the Inclusio(N) compilation album journeys through bounds of bass-driven frequencies with a dozen of electronic music’s most gifted and forward-thinking producers. The album introduces an energetic tone with Caeilis’ “Kinematik,” a four minute track that wobbles deep bass lines through your ear drums. Yheti then mixes elements of Kirby noises, chopping sub-bass lines, and motivational […]
This week I found some very gritty sounds that I think might catch your interest. These artists tore down the genre barriers and put together some lethal tracks that really set them apart. From exotic scales to dominating bass synths, these tunes all tell a story with interesting dialogue with call-and-response between the drum and […]
Maya Jane Coles to release debut P off her dub-driven side project, Nocturnal Sunshine
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.
If your musical preferences span across the music spectrum, then you know there’s nothing better than your favorite styles being fused into something fresh and never before heard. For Will McNair, better recognized under the alias The 83rd, reworking the best tracks of the past half century into dance-floor ready hits is the producer’s forte. Last March, The Electronic Current had […]
I’m blown away by how prolific Josh Pan is. The wildly unique “nectar” earned him a tweet from Skrillex and a feature from the OWSLA page. Dubai-based producer MISOGI seamlessly blends chilled out breaks and builds with heavy drops in “PINK2,” a single of his upcoming EP of the same name. More love for Josh […]
Once a month our staff of 17 Music lovers collaborates to create one concentrated mixtape. It holds the very best of what’s been our headphones lately, both new and old. This month’s playlist features some ghostly filters, some early 2000s R&B flips and that hard shit.
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 […]
