P. MORRIS & SWEATER BEATS – YOUNG IN LOVE /HEARTBREAK IV

These two Bear Club producers are clearly feeling the Valentine’s Day vibes as they release two track EP ‘Young Love/Heartbreak IV’.  P. Morris’ offering is based around a sample of Beyonce’s ‘Party’, while Sweater Beats’ contribution is a mutated, string-based affair.  This is the fourth installment of their ‘Young Love/Heartbreak’ series together, and long may it…

DURKIN – WORKWORKWORK

NAS – THE SEASON [PROD. J DILLA]

At the Mass Appeal launch party for ‘Run The Jewels 2‘, Nas joined El-P and Killer Mike on stage to share a new track, claiming that the style of music was similar [it most definitely is not].  Hopping on J Dilla’s classic ‘Gobstopper’ beat, Nas proclaims this to be ‘The Season of Nasir’.  With his…

P. MORRIS – BEFORE YOU DISAPPEAR

We fell head over heels for P. Morris when he released the interactive ‘Debut‘ back in February.  October 28 will see the LA producer return with his latest EP ‘Beloved’.  As yet, we’re unsure exactly what’s in store, but judging by new track ‘Before You Disappear’ we’re in for a treat.  The track loops an underwater-sounding, garbled…

KLIMEKS – CONNEXION

The latest track from Klimeks, despite seemingly being named after a school careers service, is an a soaring, airy masterpiece.  Its atmospheric brand of Trap is encapsulating as a plaintive vocal sample breathes over layers of bass and percussion.  Stream below via SoundCloud.

SHUNGU – ALL I DO

Belgian producer ShunGu releases, ‘All I Do’, available for name your price/free download and a limited run of 200 cassettes via Cosmic Compositions.  The twelve track collection is smooth and Jazzy, taking nineties samples from Eve, Jadakiss, Bow Wow and more and setting them against a softer backdrop.  Stream below via SoundCloud.

BONHAM CARTER – CAKE

Taking vocal samples from Chris Brown & Rihanna’s ‘Birthday Cake’, as well as cuts from ‘Move That Dope’ among others, Bonham Carter drops new track ‘Cake’. This is the second track we’ve had from the Bay Area producer this week [after last Thursday’s ‘LiquidLavaLove‘] just for the hell of it.  According to his SoundCloud he’s just…

GREYHAT – POWERLINE

Portland producer Greyhat produces a sound like no other on his latest track ‘Powerline’.  There’s a kind of raw lead synth that’s pretty much the only constant, which is joined by shuffling percussion, glimmering electronic glitches and the occasional guitar and harmonica [?] samples.  As you might be able to tell, we’re pretty much stuck…

CYPRIA – BROKEN DREAM BOULEVARD

‘Broken Dream Boulevard’ is the brand new, beautifully soulful beat tape from UK producer Cypria.  Although jam-packed with dusty samples, Cypria gives them all a thorough polishing to create a ten track EP that positively glistens.  At times, ‘BDB’ displays a slightly darker side to the UK native, but in the main this is EP shines with a kind…
