As we approach the May 30 release date of Choongum 's Pure Spirit on Potholes Music, expect a new single just about every week. This week brings "Transparent Islands", a floating daydream filled with enough synthesizers to help you escape your daily stress. The melodies of this atmospheric jam are infectious, lending itself to the calming tones of aquatic adventure. Kind of like if you added some bouncing house drums to a classic Enya cut. And I mean that in the best way possible. Choongum's Pure Spirit drops digitally May 30 via Potholes Music, and [...]

Producers Shisa and Choongum have teamed up for a 90s-signifier drenched collaborative album, Seascape 64 , and the results are a hazy, half-remembered rendering of some of the era's best tendencies. Standout track "Cyberterrorism" recalls the gutsy techno of early R&S recordings, with just enough of a hint of breakbeats to be relevant to the now . Seascape 64 is available as a 'name your price' download and on cassette via Hoko Sounds .

A random leak from Choongum ? Sure! While he prepares to release some official tunes in the near future, "Girlfriend" is sure to hold us over. The new song is an emotional reflection on a relationship with a loved one, as Choongum flexes both his vocal and production muscles. While "Girlfriend" starts off slow, things quickly pick up as instrumentation and R&B melodies are added layer upon layer. Give this lovely piece a spin, and stay tuned as we work towards an announcement of the next Choongum project on Potholes Music.

Last month, Potholes Music's Choongum dropped an extended single in " Hearts ", a collaboration with like-minded young producer Shisa. Thankfully they didn't stop working together there, as the Northern California dweller just shared another joint track, "Transmissions". It plays out like a daydream with a pulse, which might cause you to start dancing if you're not careful. Actually, fuck it, just hit play, dance a lil', and enjoy. It's Friday after all.

Today we're stoked to present Distant Arcade , the first artist compilation for Potholes Music . It features brand-new tracks from each of our 12 artists including newcomer British producer B O L T S who brings his own flavor of honey-like sample flips and lighthearted jazz sentiments. The theme of Distant Arcade is, above all, space- the cosmos, spaceship joyrides, and the like. We asked our artists to take their cues from above the stratosphere in crafting their tracks, and while the individual approaches vary, the overall discourse of the compilation is one of zero gravity contemplation. [...]

We first got hipped to the ever-evolving tunes of Arcata, Calif.-based artist Choongum way back in March 2011 . Since then, we've kept up with his chameleon-like approach to music, which has led to mellow remixes of Frank Ocean , indie pop and ambient experiments , and much more. And the kicker about all this? He's only 19. It's been nothing short of remarkable watching Choongum's progress, and we couldn't be happier to bring you his first release as a member of Potholes Music . The Fantasy EP is a short-but-sweet collection of [...]
Today we are excited to release Choongum 's first single on Potholes Music, "Active Water". Showing off his ability to change gears once again, the young left-coast producer has enlisted some swift steel drums to craft a catchy summer jam. The entire four-track EP on which this single will reside reflects a true tropical journey, one that fulfills many fantasies one might have while stuck in their office all summer. Seriously, all this song makes me want to do is frolic in the sand and catch some rays. Give "Active water" a whirl and be sure to come back [...]

Need one more track to add to the July 4 BBQ playlist? Recent Potholes Music signee Choongum has you covered. Taking to the Summer of Haze jam "Weedwave", the left coast producer adds some synthesizers to the mix to elevate our listening experience. The final product is a mysterious, nautical journey through sound, which divers deeper and deeper throughout the track until it springs free around the 2:45 mark. Give this one a spin and let us know what you think.
Première: Choongum - Oceanography Last year I had the pleasure of getting to know this young producer Choongum . So naturally when he releases a new track, I tend to take notice. Choongum is one of the people who has the gift for music, his sound is constantly evolving, somehow he knows exactly what the listener wants while not using his unique sound.

We first caught wind of 17-year-old producer Johnny Henick nearly a year ago with his already established Bandcamp discography . As time passed Choongum hit us with some new projects, continuously astonishing us with his ability to morph his sound into new shapes and sizes. His most recent accomplishment comes by way of Timefog , a 14-song journey that sours through ambience, nature, and indie pop. Timefog is also available on cassette , which is certainly a good way to get some material product from this promising artist. Hit the skip to [...]
Choongum Enlightenment at a Funeral Ya know those last couple posts of mine talking about how music is in a transition period? How the evolution of hip hop beats has not dwindled in the slighest, instead it’s just taken on a new form? Choongum is what I was talking about. The second single from Choongum’s upcoming album Timefog was released today, and it’s two minutes of ambient paradise. With rolling piano keys, drums that build and break, surrounded by swooshing samples, Johnny Henick tells a story with this [...]

Frank Ocean is bound to turn out as an R&B powerhouse within the next year, that goes without saying. Just one spark of his genius came by way of " Thinking About You ", an emotional ride of sexy smoothness. With those adjectives in mind, it made perfect sense for Choongum to step up and give this song a remix of his own. Turning down the tempo and giving the vocals a stretched out aesthetic, Choongum uses some tame synths and echoing snares to give a new spin to this already fabulous song.

So I've been stuck in the Dominican Republic since my gig on Saturday thanks to the ultra hyped junior hurricane Irene. The irony of being stuck in the Caribbean because of a hurricane in New York of all places is pretty funny but it's beautiful down here so I'm not complaining. Saturday at Praia down here was sick, the ShaveUrLegz.com did it up with the promotion and the place was packed and bumpin' all night. I've said it before and I'll say it again, these guys are doing something fantastic for Dominican culture and I couldn't feel more privileged be a part of it. There will be [...]
