mp3: Disclosure- Control (ft. Ria Ritchie)

There are a lot of producers these days that could lay claim to the definitive song of the fantastic UK electronic music scene, however, most of them are going to have a hard time beating (puns) out this new jam from Disclosure.  ‘Control’ manages to pack almost everything that is good about UK bass and dance music into a tightly …

mp3: Sunless ’97- Azul

Sunless ’97 has been building some steady buzz across the blogosphere since I first dug into their rich sound.  And while their new jam ‘Azul’ isn’t as instantly catchy as ‘Body Weather’ the slow-burner manages to recapture the same fresh sound that made them so irresistible in the first place.  With so many influences impacting bands like Sunless ’97 it is becoming increasingly hard …

Video: Joey Bada$$- Hardknock (ft. CJ Fly)

Sometimes we have to admit that we weren’t even close to the first bloggers to recognize the talent of an artist.  We really like staying on top of the hip-hop scene, yet we let rapper Joey Bada$$ and his Brooklyn-based Pro Era crew slip through but despite having some hipster self-afflicted shame, I still can’t deny just how good this …

mp3: Indigo High- Eyes (prod. Chromadadata)

Most of the r&b that resulted from 2010′s wave of experimental r&b tended towards the introverted side.  Whether it was the drug ladden stories of The Weeknd, the weird loves of The Internet or the near shoegaze work of How to Dress Well, us hipsters have yet to embrace some light-hearted r&b.  While I’m not trying to say Indigo High …

mp3: Slow Magic & Beat Culture – Once

If you thought Beat Culture has been on a tear for the last year and a half or so that he’s been making music, just wait until two weeks when he becomes a high school graduate.  To kick off the summer for us, Beat Culture has teamed up with Soundcloud producer Slow Magic to create a beautifully delicate song for …

Enjoy it While it’s Fresh: Charles Murdoch

Brisbane based producer Charles Murdoch (pictured above broing out on a mountain) is not an artist you want to let slip into the depths of soundcloud’s massive pool of promising producers.  While I’m glad dope-wave never became anything more than a blogging inside joke, the music of Charles Murdoch would be right or anyone looking for the next big dope-waver …

mp3: Beat Connection- The Palace Garden, 4AM

There is no point in ever trying to deny synth-pop anymore.  Everyone’s favorite folk singers probably aren’t going to trade in their guitars for ableton, but synth music is as ingrained into our culture as guitar music was in the 60s.  And it’s a good thing that synth-pop shows no signs of slowing down with bands as good as Beat …
