Rachel Row’s “L Square” and the KiNK Mix are quality deep dance cuts with an accessibility that could easily see it’s way to the mainstream. The song really shines with hard breakbeats banging away under a floating ethereal atmospheric vibe.
Your going to want your headphones for this one. “Crystalline” by the east London duo Subway is the kind of song that really should be listened to with your undivided attention.
Indie R&B singer-songwriter Tom Krell, better known as How To Dress Well, has released a trilogy of tracks for his upcoming third LP, What Is This Heart?.
Remington “Remy” Shand’s tribute to legendary skateboarder “The Gonz” has all the style and funk of The Gonz in motion and a slick video to accompany it.
“Stitches” is the title track from the forthcoming album by Califone. On a foundation of organ chords, squalls of barely controlled guitar feedback and drum machine blast-beats perfectly frame the evocative lyrics.
Totally loving this ultra deep remix of Isis Graham’s “Dust Settles” by Sanctums. Minimal with really great bass frequencies and—dare I say—pure emotion.
Hey, if Billboard can unashamedly repurpose content, then so can we!
Time to roll down the car windows, fire up the grill, re-up the sunblock, and get into all kinds of summer tunes. Our personal best-of-summer list runs the gamut from cool to hot, easy-listening to classic pop-punk.
“Loose Lights”, from Dirg Gerner’s Preface EP is a hypnotic piece. Built on a haunting, descending three note vocal, it gradually evolves into a sexy latin shuffle that vocalist Rahel turns into a duet.
Toro Y Moi is one of my favorite artists right now and “Still Sound” is one of my favorite songs. His music has a very melodic quality to it but with upbeat and VERY funky undertones.
Ok, so if you have not guessed it by now….I LOVE CHILLWAVE!! Memory Tapes’ “Wait In The Dark” is no exception.
