Seattle beat experimentalist, Tavvish , is one guy worth listening to. His most recent track, 'Once a Day', stretches out at five minutes long only to leave you feeling like it was much longer. It's down-tempo fantasy chiming loop horn, wish washes and ties all focus and thought directly towards its uplifting soul teasing melody. It's one hell of a sound on this one. Listen and download a compilation of all of Tavvish's works thus far at the link below or at his soundcloud . Tavvish - Once a Day [...]
The wondrous beats of SF's, Mark Aubert , have always been an absolute favorite of mine, and like a dream come true he will be mixing in for an upcoming DECKast ! In complete and utter excitement for this I thought i'd do a post on the guy. His most recent release on bandcamp has had me going for a good while now. The last of the three tracks features a double song in one. 'Oh My Darlin / To Control', bursts, excites, and can easily be recycled over and over again. Its real a gem. [...]

All the proceeds of the album go to the Oxfam organization to help aid to the thousands of the DRC's poorest people. It's truly an extraordinary project that this [...]
South Carolina's, Hard Mix , features a new single of his on the recently dropped split 7" with Torkelsen , on Sellout! Music . Noah's side features, 'Upkeep', a body bouncing jazz number that cuts in with its stabbing beat rhythms and resonating refreshments of samples.

[ via ] NY lo-fi hopper dude, Tiago Rodrigues aka RAP / RAP / RAP , recently caught my attention when Teams mentioned him on his twitter. The guy gives off this Hype Williams sounding vibe but clearly has his own interpretation of the eccentric sound. His most recent soundcloud number is one hell of a head-bopper. Its a lo-fi bass pumping loop that persistently moves and drools its sporadic timing to different and colorful dimensions. Real fun one. Legowelt - Ocean Arrow (RAP / RAP / RAP remix)
Came across this real cool track by the mystifying, Classic Moove , entitled, 'Tape Vol.1'. Its a 4min collage of static sounding oldie samples and subtle grooving experimentations of melodies. Its a real play on the ears. Check out this track and his other tunes on soundcloud . Classic Moove - Tape Vol.1 space age_ by classic moove

R & S records newest member, Cloud Boat , released their debut single, Lions On The Beach , today. I haven been on this single for quite sometime now streaming it over and over again through the label's soundcloud . There's something just so incredible about the b-side of this release that makes it an instant classic. 'Bastion' plays part in a melodramatic number that slowly lures the listener into this bass and sub haven of emotive guitar strings and heavy reverbs of vocals. Such a beautiful and glorious composition. Can't wait [...]
German beat-architect, Thallus , has an upcoming project on Ritmo Sportivo . 'Hidden Memos', a single off the soon to be released instrumental piece, drives intricate beat phrases and soulful rhythmical patterns, that orchestrate an atmosphere completely of its own. Incredibly beautiful stuff going on here. Download the track below off soundcloud ... Thallus - Hidden Memos by ritmosportivo Thallus - Hidden Memos from ritmo sportivo on Vimeo .
Toro y Moi's new EP, Freaking Out , is an upcoming on Carpark Records and its due out on September 13th. This EP is definitely a nice post collection of tracks that dindt make it on Underneath The Pine . Everything about this EP reeks of dance vibes. So up-beat and feel-good, who knew Chaz's chillwave originals would result in these chill-out house get-downs. Loving this new developed sound of his though, it brings such good vibes. The EP's closing number, 'I Can Get Love', is [...]
Hyperdub allstars, King Midas Sound , recently released their 12" of two remixes, Kuedo's remake of, 'Goodbye Girl', and Mala's remix of 'Earth A Kill Ya'. Kuedo's retouch of 'Goodbye Girl' is really something. The song first caught my attention when they released the music video for the track earlier this summer, and every since then it's been on repeat. Such an epic sequenced dub tune beginning to end, cannot think of what else to say about it but to listen for yourself. If your a fan of whatever the Midas sound crew does, [...]

Toronto's 15-yr old beat instrumentalist, Hollow Pigeons , put his debut EP up on bandcamp today entitled, Letters to Kiko . Kid's got some real soul. He creates smooth and easy-listening beat phrases that pan out so nicely. The 5-track collection borderlines and hovers ethereal sounds, creating a category of its own. With healing and dream-scaped themes, its a great listen for those early mornings and late nights. Download and check it out below... Hollow Pigeons - Letters to Kiko EP (click to download) [...]
Russian beat abstractionist, Chushi , hooked up his bandcamp with a new beattape of some kind called, basf . Lo-fi psych-beats for the soul.
