mp3: Ghost Row – Battery (Feat. Sidewalk Kal) (Prod. Color Plus)

If you ever heard the beats on Color Plus’ Cerulean Dream and thought some of them sounded perfect for rapping over, today is your lucky day.  Color Plus just teamed up with a rapper who I don’t know much about, Ghost Row, and The Up-Turn veteran Sidewalk Kal.  The song consists of a classically Color Plus-sounding beat with ambient synths and …

mp3: Animal Collective – Today’s Supernatural

The last time we heard some new Animal Collective I admitted that my opinions about their music immediately after listening will probably change as I continue to dive into the track.  In the case of ‘Honeycomb’ and ‘Gotham’, the music continued to get better and better and there is no reason why their new leak (and the first official taste …

mp3: Dream Koala – We Can’t Be Friends.

Musically, Sunday mornings will forever be reserved for the soundtrack to recovery.  The weekend will always be for late nights and partying besides of course Sunday, which always seems to start with a feeling captured in the first chord of Dream Koala’s ‘We Can’t Be Friends.’.  Also written as a hate letter to the slippery friendzone, ‘We Can’t Be Friends.’ …

mp3: Floats – ZZZZZ

Having a music blog makes it really easy to track personal trends and listening habits and for anyone who wants to figure out the recent obsession of us writers at The Up-Turn just take a look through our recent posts to see how many times we’ve said “future-trap”.  And while we are listening to a healthy dose of that hi-hat …

mp3: Color Plus – Take Yr Time (Kwala Remix)

Of all the airy compositions that made up Cerulean Dream, ‘Take Yr Time’ is easily one of Color Plus’ most ambient, spacious and dreamy tracks.  Fellow producer Kwala decided to take on the challenge of reworking the track by giving it some more ground to tread while still paying homage to the original.  Although the Kwala remix of ‘Take Yr …

mp3: LOL Boys – Changes (Shlohmo Remix)

The original version of LOL Boys’ ‘Changes’ works with a subdued style that isn’t all that different than the down-tempo and organic tunes that Shlohmo does so well, so for his remix Shlohmo works with small and subtle changes to make the song all his own.  Shlohmo takes the tempo back another notch, strips away the jazzy production and replaces it …

Mixtape: Treekeeper – Tropical Summrr Get Right 4 The Summrr Mixtape EP

The summer of 2012 has already been well on its way for a while now and we’re in desperate need for some summery jams to replace ‘Call Me Maybe’.  While Treekeeper doesn’t have a track to become the new king of pop radio, his Tropical Summrr Get Right 4 The Summrr Mixtape EP is a sugar-coated, future-trap expedition that will …
