ELWD – THERE’S LIGHT SOMEWHERE

ELWD returns with his third LP on Bad Taste Records, ‘There’s Light Somewhere’.  Retaining the glitchy, chopped-up, experimental sound we’ve come to know and love, the Northern beatmaker goes slightly darker this time round.  Hip Hop is the major undercurrent, but the record dips the occasional toe into Chillout, Ambient, Jazz and Soul, as well as Jungle, Breakbeat…

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…
