Ambient, Chill | Listen To DUX’s Cinematic Alien Funk

Posted by on July 1, 2016

When “Diana” by DUX hit my inbox on Tuesday night I was too busy to listen, but I finally got a minute to listen through this morning and I was blown away. Jonah McLean aka DUX is an L.A. native who only has two songs to date, and they’re getting better every listen through. While I enjoy his debut release “Responsible,” last weeks drop “Diana” is my personal favorite due to how calming it is. Staight bad ass vibes, feel like it’d fit in the soundtrack to Drive.

Since he released his debut original, “Heading Home,” earlier this year, Gryffin has been touring the world and showcasing his live show, which features the artist playing guitar, synths, drum pads, and singing at various points, further cementing his reputation as a talented musician. Now, Gryffin has unveiled the official acoustic version of “Heading Home” with Josef Salvat, and we can’t stop listening. Gryffin lays down a bed of beautiful, soaring piano chords that are perfectly complemented by Josef Salvat’s soulful croons for an emotional 3 minute video.

Norwegian producer Limbic Void just dropped his debut five-track EP called “Lapdogs” and it is beautiful. Having started the EP in early 2015, Limbic Void decided to scrap everything and start all over again from scratch 6 months in – a decision he says he does not regret. He said that the “new songs came to me much more naturally…I was playing around with the ideas revolving around a harmless comment that stuck in my head, about how people settling down had become “domesticated””. This collection of sounds has an almost Flume influence with a more pop feel – combined with naturally soothing vocals. Check out the EP now and remember, “everybody knows that even lapdogs have to run”.
