mp3: Pharrell Williams – Frontin (Jaw Jam Bootleg)

Over the past few months, Jaw Jam has gone from being another indefinable yet undeniably talented producer to one of our favorite artists in the still young underground house revival that will undoubtedly eventually be hipper than future-trap which is currently on route to replacing brostep.  All hipster musings aside, Jaw Jam has been consistently delivering UK garage-inspired house tunes …

mp3: 2.7.5 MuffLucid – Phonky Trunk (ft. 2.7.5 Steez Da Gawd) (prod. Myth Syzer)

Raider Klan has their eyes set on taking over the rap game in 2013 and their strategy seems to be based around promoting a huge amount of artists with a wide and deep well of talent to pull from.  The Klan is taking things international with 2.7.5 MuffLucid’s newest track “Phonky Trunk” featuring the production talent of Parisian Myth Syzer. …

mp3: uhlife – pruse (Prod. RAJA)

mp3: REKchampa – Fried Chicken Skin

Promising “nothing but straight grooves”, REKchampa delivers with an incredibly distinctive and forward-thinking house track.  “Fried Chicken Skin” is electronic music stripped down to its bare essentials.  The focus is on the shuffling percussion track and at times there isn’t much more than the groove in the mix.  Alone, nothing in “Fried Chicken Skin” is all that special, however, REKchampa …

mp3: Literature – Tie Dye (Your Life)

Back in January, Austin-based Literature dropped the jangle-filled Arab Spring LP and have kept us patiently waiting for new material.  Almost a full year later, the group has dropped the Tie Dye 7″ to remind us why I was buzzing so much about them in the first place.  Title-track “Tie Dye (Your Life)” is just as colorful as the name suggests …

The Up-Turn Presents: Mr. Herbert Quain – There’s no way not to go back Mix

On his soundcloud page, Portugese producer Mr. Herbert Quain is described as born from “…a state where we will remember the future and we will ignore, or hardly have a presentiment of, the past.”  To be completely honest, I have no idea what that means.  However, listening to Quain’s There’s no way not to go back Mix, that description seems …
