JERON BRAXTON – SJÀPE

Some pretty crazy stuff ends up in our submissions inbox.  ‘Sjàpe’, however, takes the biscuit.  The new album from Indianapolis artist Jeron Braxton is so startlingly out-there it’ll stop you in your tracks.  It’s a jarring, disparate collection that spans experimental Hip Hop, Breakbeat, Electronica and Punk, all brought together into one cohesive experience by Braxton’s cinematic production style.    Brace…

MOOSE RECORDS – MOOSETAPE 9

French label Moose Records have released their ninth compilation, ‘Moosetape 9′.  The follow-up to April’s ‘Moosetape 8‘ features a whole new selection of artists including HVRXLD, Glo Heaven, Ness and more.  It’s a melodic, ambient collection of Future Beat styles; from the Capeface’s melodic ‘Lie Again’, to the deep bass of Glxy’s ‘Promise’, to the…

KÈMI ADÈ – THEN

Kèmi Adè’s new track ‘Then’ is just about as smooth as they come.  Her buttery-soft vocal melts over Jimmy Logic’s shuffling, Jazz-tinged neo-Soul production.  Rich and melodic, ‘Then’ is the first single to come from the South Londoner’s upcoming EP, ‘The Coffee Shop’, from which we can expect “a simmering genre gumbo, spiced with Hip-Hop, Neo-Soul, Country, Indie…

ELWD – TROPIC

‘Tropic’ follows ‘Dreamwaves‘ as ELWD’s second album on Bad Taste Records.  Despite being created in the North East of England, the album evokes palm-lined boulevards, sun-drenched beaches and steamy jungles throughout.  On one level it’s mellow Instrumental Hip Hop at it’s finest, but it goes deeper than that.  Split over two sides of a cassette,…

MODEL 86 – FRIEND

Model 86 is the moniker of Manchester-born, London-based producer Matthew Wilcock.  Other than this, and the fact that he’ll soon be releasing an EP called ‘Self Help Dance’, new track ‘Friend’ is pretty much all the information we have to go on.  Happily, ‘Friend’ is quite possibly the best thing we’ve heard all year: stabbing synths,…

JAY PRINCE – TAKE YOUR TIME

Since releasing the superb ‘BeFor Our Time‘ at the beginning of this year, we haven’t heard much in the way of new music from Jay Prince; the East Londoner has been busy travelling the world with LA-based collective Soulection.  Today though, Annie Mac premieres a new track from Prince, produced by IAMNOBODI [who co-produced ‘BeFor Our Time‘],…

HUDSON MOHAWKE – WARRIORS [VIDEO – FT. PUSHA T]

Having already released one video for ‘Lantern‘ stand-out ‘Warriors‘, Hudson Mohawke recruits director Eric Yue and rapper Pusha T for another.  The dark film is shot late at night in Long Island, and sees King Push embody the titular warrior, running from the surveliance of the authorities in a not-too-distant future.  Those left wondering why the…
