DREAM PANTHER – BEYONCE’S CHILD

  California beatsmith Dream Panther links up with German label Radio Juicy for the release of his latest project, ‘Beyonce’s Child’, which is also available on vinyl and cassette.  The EP is described as “Trillwave Retrospective”, which is actually pretty accurate. Dream Panther manages to create a sound that is rooted in Hip Hop, but takes on…

LUKE BONDS – SOUNDS HAVE FEELINGS / SIDE A

With a near constant output of brilliantly wavey, jazz-tinged instrumentals, it’s surely only a matter of time before we see Barbadian producer Luke Bonds get the recognition he deserves.  His latest collection, ‘Sounds Have Feelings’ shuffles along in a kind of zoned-out haze that almost belies it’s careful construction.  Stream below via BandCamp.

KOEN – 1140

Dutch producer Koen released ‘1140’ this afternoon, an incredibly laid back cut of Chillwave/R & B that takes a vocal sample from Project Pat’s ‘High Off The Ground‘.

KID SMPL – SILO TEAR EP

Kid Smpl released his ‘Silo Tear’ EP today via Hush Hush records after garnering support from the likes of Red Bull Music Academy and XLR8R.  The Seattle producer constructs layers with such intensity that one can’t help but recall Clams Casino, particularly while listening to the lo-fi elegance of ‘Ja’.  However, throughout the five tracks we get…

THE NINETYS – I KNOW IT’S BEEN A WHILE

British producer The Ninetys ends a brief musical hiatus with the aptly titled ‘I Know It’s Been A While’.  The Londoner generated a real buzz some high quality remixes and the excellent #BlackSeries, and cites personal problems as the reason for his short disappearance.  The track errs on the Chillwave side of Trap, beautifully textured, with long…

DISCLOSURE – LATCH [LIDO REMIX]

As far as remixes are concerned, Disclosure’s ‘Latch’ is the gift that just keeps on giving.  First there was DJ Premier’s version, a stunning R&B refix, and now Norwegian producer Lido has lent his soft, electronic touch to the track.  Despite growing and swelling in fits and starts, the track remains silky smooth throughout, and with…

LOCKAH – YAHOO OR THE HIGHWAY

  British producer (and founder of Tuff Wax) Lockah releases his exceptional debut tomorrow, but you can stream it now via SoundCloud and Pitchfork Advance.  ‘Yahoo Or The Highway’ pairs grandiose synths with a variety of beats and basslines that range from Trap to House to Syth Pop and all the way back again.  Stream…
