Premiere: LEFT – “About Nothing”

Britain-based producer LEFT (aka Zak McGrath) just dropped the incredible number “About Nothing” and we’re absolutely smitten. A gorgeous build-up introduces us to the track’s darkly seductive, minimalist elements as the producer slowly pieces them together, skilfully building our anticipation. At the exact moment all the elements start to come together is the very moment a subtle, yet overwhelming warmth washes over in…

fwdslxsh – “Yellow”

It’s been a week since London-based producer fwdslxsh released the track “Yellow.” Within that time it’s jumped to over 55,000 plays on Soundcloud and for good reason. This track is a gem among a pile of bedroom rubbish storming through blog sites and submission boxes. First you’re greeted with the sound of rain and soft vocal sampling that transcends into the track.…

Premiere: Eest Coast – “Never Change”

We’re super stoked about getting to premiere “Never Change”, one of the tracks from Connecticut-based producer Eest Coast‘s debut EP Selfish People. The track features a gorgeous and expansive soundscape that envelopes every inch of your head-space and doesn’t easily let up, while its repetitive nature only holds on to you tighter as you fall prey to its hypnotic allure. Super chilled…

The Basement Tapes – “Loving Me”

The mellow electronic gem “Loving Me” comes from mysterious New Zealand-based producer/songwriter The Basement Tapes. Often using a mixture of live instruments and electronic samples, The Basement Tapes pulls back from his more common energetic bangers to embrace the aspects of drone and hip hop while still staying true to his unique style of music. The crisp drums and bright video game…

Trak Joy – “Skin”

New York-based Trak Joy provides the kind of raw talent hidden in the darkness of the indie scene that we love most. The track “Skin” wraps you in a blanket of synths and the drop into the first chorus is reminiscent of synth pop in its better days. The track is both capable of portraying a feeling of nostalgia through their…

TVNE – “Love & Lingerie”

Fresh faced, 19 year-old Cleveland-based producer, TVNE, showcases his masterful production with his chill-out track, “Love & Lingerie.” The track features a fresh approach to 1990′s Houston-era “slowed and throwed” sampling, uniquely arranged within a sweet, droney soundscape. “Love & Lingerie” is the perfect song to chill out to as things heat up. Grab the track via Soundcloud. (Photo)

Saint Pepsi – “Fall Harder”

With “Fall Harder”, Saint Pepsi (aka 21-year old Ryan DeRobertis) fuses the posh stateliness of the RAM-era of Daft Punk’s inner yacht rock with a vibrant chillwave sheen. The b-side to his vocal debut and this year’s brilliant favorite “Fiona Coyne”, the hook-laden “Fall Harder” is a perfect accompanying swan song to the endearingly saccharine days of summer. Stream it below…

kuma – “Beneath The Flowers”

LA/Tacoma’s kuma just dropped a 2 track EP called BERA and we’re absolutely smitten with “Beneath The Flowers”. The 18 year-old producer reminisces on the music he was heavily listening to back in high school, with Lupe Fiasco‘s Food And Liquor inspiring this gorgeous track. Warm synths wash over this number, while glitchy vocal samples and flickering beat work effortlessly skip about the warm…

aywy. & Ekali – “Your Love”

Flow-fi‘s aywy. and Vancouver’s Ekali just dropped another absolutely incredible number called “Your Love” from their upcoming EP together. The two explicitly skilled producers have taken an immensely popular sample that’s been recycled repeatedly and transformed it into something absolutely breathtaking. The track starts off with an icy introduction, but slowly morphs into a warm and sensual masterpiece with deep,…

ekali-unfaith

Ekali – “Unfaith”

Vancouver based producer Ekali works magic on his newest song “Unfaith”, a drifting, soaring, echoing track posted on his SoundCloud. Light vocals and transient, fading beats wobbling in and out of auditory existence are noticeable at first, balanced on a fine line between conscious being and blissful nothingness. Then the song’s zenith rips into a solid state, which is able to…
