Hip-Hop | Sugi Dakks Gets Deeply Rooted on new EP

Posted by on November 12, 2020

If you’re a fan of Anderson Paak and Eminem you will likely be a fan of Sugi Dakks music, especially this new ‘Deeply Rooted’ project. The soulful/funky/jazzy influenced hip-hop stylings are a breathe of fresh air in the current clip of rap. The 7-track-release can be streamed above, check out a quote from Dakks on the project below.

‘Deeply Rooted’ is an EP that explores my personal identity, the identity of others, and how we come to shape our identities. When it comes to racism, self-hatred, prejudice, bias, discrimination, and all forms of inequality, all of these are deeply ingrained in our society and deeply ingrained in most everyones personal story. Through this EP, I was able to share my story of how I viewed myself, how it differed from the viewpoints of my peers and the general society, and how bigotry is such a destructive engine that ruins people’s lives, livelihood, and self-worth.”

Posted by on October 6, 2020

Berne expertly combine a distinct mix of abstract and often cerebral lyricism with emotive, vivid imagery, haunting harmonies and dark melodies on their new environmentally friendly ‘STAY‘ EP. The result is an incredibly distinct sonic atmosphere, underpinned by a tenor of unity and collective responsibility towards the planet. The 4 track project (including a fifth track that is an acoustic version of the single “Oceans”) explores important themes that are well worth diving into. Check out a quote from the rising duo below and stream their debut EP above now.

 “Our debut EP is a reflection of what keeps us up at night. It comes at a time when humans need to work together towards common goals more than ever. We really believe that small changes will collectively make a big impact and that is the common thread in all the songs.” – Berne.

Tonner is the shadowy indie pop alter ego of Orlando based songwriter/producer, Matthew Tonner. His new debut EP, Whispers in the Dark, is a 8 track project that blends elements of indie rock, pop, funk and electronica. Lyrically, the EP oscillates between heartbreak and healing, delivered with a mixture of aloofness and vulnerability. The production is crisp, with choice arrangements built on swirling synths, radiant piano chords, and Tonner’s signature reverb-drenched electric guitar melodies.  Listen to Tonner’s Whispers in the Dark EP above now!

Bass, Dubstep | Sam Lamar Gets Mystical With The Divination EP

Posted by on November 8, 2019

Last time we saw Sam Lamar with Kannibalen Records he dropped his Major Arcana EP. Well, today he continues that magical endeavor with another EP, The Divination, on the Montreal label. This time around we get two bass singles, focusing in on the dubstep genre, but don’t expect the usual when it comes to Sam. He’s established a unique style and this EP sees the next step of his evolution. Not only does Sam Lamar have a signature style, but within each track he is able to take us on a ride through different sounds for a fresh experience. This is what bass music should be.

Bass | Draeden Makes His Original Debut With Conquest EP

Posted by on July 15, 2019

The Montreal producer Draeden has made his original debut with the four part Conquest EP. Released on Kannibalen Records, this project technically sees Draeden return to the imprint after an official remix for Sullivan King that was his first official release. The remix was incredible, but in seeing Draeden work with completely original material and bringing to life a concept EP like Conquest is magnificent. Draeden’s multi-genre approach blending classical with bass for a truly cinematic sound is something special that I hope to hear more of very soon! For now, I’ll be enjoying Conquest to the fullest.

House | Autograf’s first EP in 3 years was worth the wait

Posted by on June 10, 2019

I’ve been following Autograf for years. They first came on my radar when Metaphysical dropped. It’s been a long road for them since then. They’ve battled through tough curveballs that have been thrown there way and are now having the most fun they’ve had their entire career. Their new EP highlights this sentiment perfectly. It starts with a slow somber track “Test The Waters” ft. WYNNE. The EP progressively gets more clubbier and dancable as you move through it. Give it a spin and see why these guys are legends
