mp3: Anthony Ellect – While

Anthony Ellect started off his young producing career with some amazing tracks and a few months later he hasn’t stopped putting out quality material.  Along with artists like Charles Murdoch, Anthony Ellect is a new breed of producer who’s music is nearly impossible to classify. ‘While’ contains some obvious nods to chill-wave and bass music, however, Anthony Ellect doesn’t allow it to get pigeon holed into either of those genres.  As he bends and warps the track, Anthony Ellect manages to pack in hazy vibes, quality vocal snippets and some great woozy synths towards the end.  This is the kind of stuff blogs eat up these days and there is no reason we shouldn’t be when it’s this good.

mp3: AlunaGeorge – Put Up Your Hands

The blogosphere’s favorite buzzing duo, AlunaGeorge, continue to blend bass music and r&b with this jam ‘Put Up Your Hands’.  ’Put Up Your Hands’ is our latest taste of their upcoming You Know You Like It EP which drops in July.  At this point their musical style has been well established and is just being worked to perfection.  The sensual vocals of Aluna Francis bend and are warped over the bass-heavy music provided by George Reid. During the chorus it’s awesome to hear how Reid treats the vocals as most producers would a sample, shaping and manipulated it to his liking.
