Abstract Hip-Hop, Chill, Hip-Hop | Drex Carter and Kkami Connect on THAW

Posted by on November 15, 2019

With stellar beats from Kkami and dope flows from Drex Carter, THAW is well worth listening to. The EP is a great introduction to both artists if you are unfamiliar with their prior music, while also showing a different side of each artist’s normal style. Drex’ approach is more laid back and less lyrical than his older music and Kkami’s hybrid instrumentals on this one lean a bit more in the indie scene compared to his older drops. Tune in above now. Also, be sure to check out a new video off the EP by clicking here.

Chill | JOY Showcase Unique Vibe In “Closer To Divine” From ‘Soft Whisper’ Album

Posted by on October 17, 2019

Throwing the vibe back with an IDM and chillout sound of the mid 1990s, JOY’s single “Closer to Divine” conveys a true to life, supernatural, and advanced sort of experience.

The subsequent single highlighted on JOY’s pending and exceptionally presented album Soft Whisper, “Closer to Divine,” is fresh blend of computerized sounds and frantically hyper-musical.

With influences from acts like Autechre and Aphex Twin clearly built in, the instrumental strings and a melodic vibe, “Closer to Divine” is a simple substantial amalgam of nocturnally splattered synth-based tones that reverberate profoundly with significant feeling.

Chill, Pop | Corporate Slackrs Make Their Mark In 2019 With ‘Highs & Lows’ EP

Posted by on October 16, 2019

High And Lows EP pulls together two past-prodded singles and uncovers a few more fresh ones, officially putting the duo’s style and mark in 2019 on full display.

A wide blend of influences all aligned through personable stories follow a broader dance-pop road-map, Highs & Lows’ over-arching flow song-to-song and lyric/vocal work being one of many highlights.

With “S.M.S.,” focusing on a situation around a circuitous relationship, then “Faith,” displaying a lighter juxtaposition, the remaining singles fill the gaps with pleasure and ease, the ending leaving you far better off than the start.

Chill, Electronic | Juuku Gets “Gone” with Natalie on New Track

Posted by on October 5, 2019

“Gone” by juuku dropped on Mr.suicidsheep’s record label found / red, and it has been in heavy rotation since I clicked play. The single was dedicated to a late friend who unforuntly passed in a car accident, but something beautiful came from it on this song. Emotional and captivating music is the style of electronic production this producer focuses on and he is one of the best doing it at the moment who isn’t headlining major festival. Not yet at least. Listen now above and keep an eye out for new music out by juuku soon enough (Hopefully.. who knows with this mystery act..)

Actress Odeya Rush (Ladybird, Goosebumps, Dumplin’) and Harry Nathan are coming off 24 independent short film awards for their past work together on. Fool For Your Love. On Friday the pair debuted a new short video with Odeya directing again and Harry laying down some nice lo-fi dreamy pop music for their new project for “Alright”. The video is the result of a DIY, super low budget love story between a sandwich and a croissant. 

Harry Nathan’s “Alright EP”, and the B-Side to his last release “To the Limit,” is out now to accompany the extra eye-catching piece of work. It’s not your everyday video, and based on their past work, we wouldn’t think otherwise, cheers to Harry & Odeya for keeping their creativity and ingenuity alive with “Alright”.
