Chill, Electronic | Tom Misch – Soulection White Label: 008

 Tom Misch   Soulection White Label: 008

The methods of which Soulection uses to discover its vast spectrum of artists is as impressive and mysterious to me as the natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights, yet they’ve got it down to a science and are doing the world a great justice by sharing their findings gratuitously and by the plenty. Soulection features countless artists from each and every genre, but their White Label selections are something extra special, showcasing newcomers who are really bringing something to the table. I found this past week’s pick, Tom Misch, to be probably one of my favorites out of the series so far. This *free* White Label release features three tracks, all of which are incredibly executed and in my opinion, really represent the characteristic sound of Soulection (which as you can hear almost always has its roots in Dilla).

By the way, did you know Tom Misch is only 18 years old? Slayin’ em, Soulection, just slayin’ em.

Electronic | Hermitude – Ukiyo

 Hermitude   Ukiyo

The legendary Australian electronic-meets-hip-hop duo Hermitude dropped this brand new track titled “Ukiyo” yesterday in anticipation of their upcoming next album release. It’s honestly just a really nice, different, refreshing sort of sound, the kind that you want to hear all day long because it keeps your blood pumping and your spirits high. I’m getting excited just thinking about an entire album featuring this sort of style. While you might recognize these guys from that infamous Flume remix, which I have to admit is in fact one of my favorite tracks of all time, do take the time to check these guys out as artists, it’ll be worth your time.

Electronic | Disclosure – Latch (Lido Remix)

Posted by on April 16, 2014

 Disclosure   Latch (Lido Remix)

Less than a week ago I posted a Disclosure remix by up and comer cln. and in doing so, highlighted the importance of originality in these ubiquitous Disclosure remixes in order for them to break the surface, hit the big time, soar to the top of the Hype Machine charts, whatever. After hearing just a mere preview of Lido’s remix, it all became clear to me why this was one of the most anticipated Disclosure remixes in a minute. The Norwegian producer (not pointing any fingers this time) has made a name for himself after planting a seed in the scene long ago with his Cashmere Cat, “Kiss Kiss” remix (for you OG fans out there) and most recently, his rework of Yung Lean’s “Gatorade.”  This “Latch” remix is one of the more light-hearted, warm and fuzzy ones out there, perfect for any setting or time of day. Because, you know, for a second there I almost thought I never wanted to hear “Latch” again for the rest of the forseeable future but Lido really brought back the magic from the first time I heard this track back to life. Keep your eyes peeled for Lido’s EP release via Pelican Fly and your fingers crossed for it to be sooner rather than later.

UPDATE: Apparently Soundcloud was just not having it with this remix, so instead you’ll have to listen to it hear via this slightly sketchy Rinse FM rip, but hey at least it’s something.

Electronic | Midnight Pool Party – Linger

 Midnight Pool Party   Linger

Well folks, it’s the middle of April which means it took me an entire four months to find a new artist to start obsessing over (2014, get your shit together!). But it seems my hunting has come to a end, well temporarily, of course, as I would like to introduce you all to Midnight Pool Party. This band comes from where else other than the down under: Sydney, to be exact. Their style is summarized by a contagious, feel good, retro disco sound, or better put in their own words, a “potent cocktail of funky guitar licks, infectious keys and swoonsome choruses.” Their latest single, “Linger” and all its remixes (especially Luke Million’s) is a great starting place to fall in love with these party people, and once you’re ready for more, you can catch up with me over on their Miami Horror “Real Slow” remix as I’ve had it on repeat for about a week now. They’ve got their tracks available for free download so you can cop them, play them for your friends, and all dance until you drop.

Electronic, Trap | $aturn – Clift Hanger

 $aturn   Clift Hanger

As $aturn gains more and more attention I am becoming more and more impressed with the quality of work put out. This track has been floatin’ around the net for about a week as an exclusive release but now it’s officially released to Trap City’s record label Slimkat Records. It’s just too cool to pass up including it on FNT. “Clift Hanger” is fun and bouncy. The unique sounds and synth work are divine. Trap beats carry the floaty melody through ups and downs that will charm your ears. Luckily this track is available for free download if you’re diggin’ it!

Chill, Electronic | Mitch Murder – Mirage (SevnthWonder Remix)

 Mitch Murder   Mirage (SevnthWonder Remix)

SevnthSundays are always excellent! The release this week is a little different though, since it’s lacking the normal heavy R&B influence. SevnthWonder’s remix of “Mirage” by Mitch Murder is fresh and light. SevnthWonder stated that the influences for this remix were Wave Racer and Cashmere Cat. Featuring heavily altered vocals and an airy melody, this track will take your mind away. Grab this floaty track for free straight from Soundcloud as a part of SevnthSundays and keep an eye out every weekend for more!

 Kamandi & Polo   AASB EP

This EP is just too cool to pass up. Kamandi and Polo have created a seven day gradual release program for the “AASB” EP. Followers get one track (on Bandcamp) and the corresponding video (on Youtube) released per day until it’s all out for sale! We are on day six now, but I couldn’t wait until day seven to post this because it caught my attention so quickly. Each track, named by a different symbol, has a unique atmosphere to it. The bass in these tracks is mind-blowing if you’ve got the right system. All the tracks are smooth, ambient, and mysterious. The vibes in this EP are hard to describe, but may be somewhere along the lines of dark, emotional, and chill. I’ve attached two tracks from Soundcloud. Click on the Bandcamp link to hear the rest and purchase the whole EP!
