Los Angeles bred Mark Redito aka Spazzkid , released some of his best work up to date in his most recent album, Desire 願う , that was released in April of this year. If you havent ever heard of this dude's sound, it's really something else. He's been making electroinc type music for sometime now under different projects but Spazzkid is his solo effort. Its easy to makes beats but it always harder to stand out from the rest. Spazzkid succeeds with an 8-track release, putting together an emotional and passionate connection through electronic [...]

Yugen is the debut EP released by Koreless on Young Turks . It was digitally/ 12" released 20th of May. The first track 'Ivana' is produced with his signature constructed vocals flickering against the synth sound. When listening to this track, the vocals tend to bounce around you, similar to the way 'MTI' and '4D' do, that were released for Pictures back in 2011. "Sun" is a stand out track, that is both beautiful and dramatic, with a building melodic synth sound that compliments [...]

Former DECKastee , 10TH LETTER , recently released his 4th album, Behind The Iron Chrysalis , on his bandcamp page earlier this month. In close proximity to his previous successful release, WEAPONS , Jeremih takes his celestial beat compostions one step further managing to create a pool of 17 tracks that are breathing creatures in themselves. From beginning to end, an adventure through spacious sound and muttering layers that somehow work in the rhythm equation of a off-kilter timing aesthetic. The beat [...]

One of the only Hungarian producers I know of, Etush Ya (Russian phrase for "this is me, it's me"), released his 8-track album entitled, Healing , back in early April of this year. The entire release is truly healing in itself; easy-listening vibrations for the mind to ponder, mellowed-out ethnic melodies, and dream-a-fied beats that all cohesively cast a mesmerizing spell on the listener. Stuck in a trance through its duration, Etush Ya will leave you wanting more. Download it all for free down below from his bandcamp ... [...]

Fans of the duo have had to suffer through many a hardship due to their devotion of the band.

James Bond Jr. chases scum around the world... cryptic campaign of electronic internet intrigue and endless speculation, Warp [...]
Close to almost a month ago one of my favorite producers out of London and former DECKastee , AyGeeTee dropped his mind-churning LP, Fools , on the wonderful AMDISCS: Futures Reserve Label . Its a highly uplifting record, almost like spiritual residue that emits from the sonic passages and portals that are opened up in AyGeeTee's complex sound interpretations. From beginning to end he gives you a little taste of everything. From lo-fi ambiance to sampled dirty funk to groove picked psychedelic sways, its an adventure for the [...]

Washed Out's new album, Paracosm , upcoming on Sub Pop August 13th.
Melbourne based, 23 year old Oscar Key Sung singer / songwriter / producer has just released two new tracks that are available to stream and download. His sounds are both mesmerizing and dreamy. He captures that future r'n'b sound perfectly, but also spinning something of his own sound. Oscar has been very busy since becoming part of Two Bright Lakes as one half of Oscar + Martin in 2010. In early 2013 Oscar's beat was picked by MELOGHOST (Ghostpoet x MeLo-X) "WecanWorkitout" and his vocals featured on Andras Fox new LP [...]
