SAM GELLAITRY – ESCAPISM II

The sharp, stabbing synths and gut-thumping bass of Sam Gellaitry’s ‘Escapism‘ EP provide something of a sonic affront.  This time around, the follow-up is every bit as arresting, but infinitely more refined.  His characteristically synthetic sound is still front and centre, but ‘Escapism II’ deftly weaves in live instrumentation in the form of guitars, piano and…

THE NINETYS – ALL SAINTS

Released on London/LA label Veyron Arche, this new joint from The Ninetys goes seriously hard.  Choral vocals soar over hectic, skittering percussion, chopped up horns and some of the most majestic bass we’ve ever heard.  Stream below via SoundCloud.

BAAUER – KUNG FU [FT. PUSHA T & FUTURE]

“‘This is one of the missiles.  This is one of the ones I guarantee is gonna make some kind of noise,” says Baauer of new track ‘Kung Fu’.  He’s certainly not kidding; the track features a very likeable, club-friendly hook from Future as well as bars from Pusha T over a characteristically infectious beat from…

IAMUSICK – ALL THE TIME

Pittsburgh producer Iamusick has been quiet since the release of his ‘Limbic‘ EP.  His first track since the project is an energetic flip of Ciara’s body party.  The previously sultry, 80s-influenced track gets a full re-work with some huge blasts of synth and frenetic percussion – certainly one to re-visit at the weekend.  Stream below via…

DARQ E FREAKER – 2C-I

Shortly after the release of recent mixtape ‘#DontFreakOut’ [featuring singles ‘Gully‘, ‘Choppin Necks‘, ‘Spin A Man and ‘PAR‘], Dark E Freaqer releases new track ‘2C-I’.  Given the track’s hectic pace and bewildering plethotra of high-pitched sounds, it’s no wonder the South Londoner named the track after the recreational narcotic.  The track will feature on Freaker’s upcoming…

BAAUER – DAY ONES [VIDEO]

Baauer recently premiered new track ‘Day Ones‘ on The Late Show with a raucous performance featuring Leikeli47.  The track has now been given an equally raucous video, as the MC performs alongside Novelist amidst some kind of urban recreation of the Civil War.  The track will feature on Baauer’s upcoming album, ‘Aa’ [March 18], stream…

BAAUER – DAY ONES [FT. LEIKELI47 & NOVELIST]

In an explosive performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Baauer shared some pretty exciting news, along with new track ‘Day Ones’.  The track features ski-masked Brooklyn spitter Leikeli47 and Lewisham Grime MC Novelist.  It’s an epically unbridled assault, which lands in some exciting new territory between Baauer’s patented EDM Trap and London’s Grime.…

RUSTIE – FIRST MYTHZ

Rustie’s most recent LP, ‘Green Language’, was unmistakably a commercial departure from his previous output.  However, the huge bass hits and helter-skelter synth of new track ‘First Mythz’ sees him retain the euphoria he managed to create, while creating something far more niche and interesting.  The Glaswegian producer recently revealed on Instagram that it will feature…

WITH YOU – GHOST [FT. VINCE STAPLES]

With You. is a collaborative project that features core members Rick Trainor, Jeff Penalva, Noah Schy, Daouda Leonard and Dave Taylor [best known as co-founder of Major Lazer, Switch].  The group have put together a restrained House track featuring Long Beach MC Vince Staples.  The mid-tempo track has got a muffled, Grime-y quality to it –…

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…
