Snacs – Whenever. EP

There are few things that give me greater joy than having an awesome EP by an artist I have never heard of pop up in my email account.  I enjoy scouring the inter webs on soundcloud and different blogs, but deep down I’m truthfully a lazy self-interested son of a bitch so having it fall into my hands is the …

Hanz – WEALTH MADE TENSION VOL. 2

If you haven’t noticed yet, Peter and I are huge fans of Augusta, Georgia beatsmith Hanz.  Aside from being extremely talented, Hanz has always impressed us with his complete lack of hesitation to push beat making way outside of its comfort zone.  When I say that Hanz is an experimental beat maker, I don’t mean that he is just another …

mp3: Ambassadeurs – My World

It’s been about half a year since Ambassadeurs dropped his UK bass-bending, sample-manipulating anthem ‘Duke Red’ and his fresh new jam ‘My World’ definitely proves that the wait was worth it.  ‘My World’ hits a lot softer and quieter than ‘Duke Red’, however, it manages to pack in just as much meticulous sample work that makes his work so good.  ‘My …

Mixtape: KaraKara – Bully

Of all the exciting and experimental hip-hop beat tapes floating around the internet, Bully doesn’t fade into forgettable territory.  ‘Press Start’ kicks off Bully with some 8-bit sounds that soon get enveloped into a wash of flute orchestration, it’s a novel combination of sounds that really works well.  Throughout the rest of the mixtape, KaraKara keeps presenting original ideas and sounds that can sometimes …

mp3: Les Sins – Fetch

Aside from his title as one of the best chill-wavers out there, Chaz Bundick of Toro y Moi is a great dance music producer, something that he showed off pretty well with the instrumentals on Freaking Out.  Les Sins is Chaz’s side project where he experiments with dance music and a song like ‘Fetch’ proves that he’s good enough to …

Enjoy it While it’s Fresh: Sonnymoon

For the first 1 minute and 45 seconds of ‘Nothing Thought’ Sonnymoon had me thinking that they made pretty but ultimately generic atmospheric music that they decided to pair with pretty but generic VHS visuals.  Then ‘Nothing Thought’ softly breaks into an earworm hook as the visuals turn HD.  From that point on Sonnymoon make an atmospheric blend of electronics …
