CT homie and incredibly talented producer Color Plus just released this track a few days ago. ”Pulp” shows Color Plus beginning to experiment with house styles, and doing so with ease. Driven by a very house-sounding organ chord progression, this track switches between classic four-on-the-floor house drums and the more hip-hop influenced percussion which Color Plus is known for without missing a step. Every day I see more and more electronic producers bringing house elements into their production, but few have executed it as perfectly as Color Plus has with this track.
I have already kind of accepted the fact that this post is going to be a pathetic demonstration of our pseudo journalism that you come here for because I literally know nothing about this artist, but this shit is waaaaay too good not to post. Somehow this song popped up in my Soundcloud feed a few days ago, and I have been listening to it a lot since. From what I gather, this is a demo for a collaborative project by two guys named Abhi and Dijon, and thats literally all I gather. The demo is the perfect blend of beat music experimentalism and heart-wrenching R&B aesthetic and vocals, sans the bullshit pretentious air taken on by many contemporary R&B experimentalists, that I suddenly feel l has been missing from my life. I’m looking forward to hearing more from this project in the future, but right now I’m fine with listening to this song on repeat for a few hours.
Me and Terry just spent 8 hours together driving across the country searching for some DOPE beaties. This is all we got. Hit that jump for a slow burner from abhi dijon, new madegg (which is always a good thing), Leah Axel on those emotional vibes (Axel might be going as babi wolf now which would be pretty cool too), some couch music from inf.Zero and some crazy, experimental, you’re-not-cool-enough-for-this-shit-wave from CT native Rudkus.
Harbours is a dude from Mebourne who makes music. Judging by his debut “Cashew”, Harbours is a dude who makes really good music. ”Cashew” definitely comes from a Toro y Moi inspired brand of electronic-pop with plenty of bright synths and woozy vocals. While chillwave has been a blogosphere joke ever since 2009, “Cashew” reminds me of the promise I first heard when I listened to “Blessa”. It’s just music done right.
We’ve known Yung Gutted was one of our favorite fresh-faced producers for a while now, however, his material is only getting stronger. ”GORE”, his latest track to feature a guest MC, is a track as lush as it is desolate and dark. Alternating between throbbing bass and modulated synth crackles, “GORE” is the soundtrack to the coolest graveyard party of all time. Stewart Villain sounds comfortable over the abstract beat throwing out macabre images to match the feeling of the track. For those who have been waiting for new material from the prolific Lil Ugly Mane, do yourself a favor and check out this dude’s material.
Look. I already knew Young Ho collective was on some next-level, spiritual, vibed-out inter-dimensional plane, but this new track from SEENMR is something else entirely. I just finished writing a paper about psychedelic and free-jazz pioneer Sun Ra and it turns out I wasn’t the only one getting into his cosmic mythology. SEENMR just released his tribute to Saturn’s best Jazz performer with “A Great Spirit” which features an interview with Sun Ra. Maybe it’s just a coincidence. Nah.
The first song I ever heard by HAPPY TRENDY was his awesome cover of Coma Cinema’s “Tour All Winter”. With this song, he’s once again putting an awesome analog spin on a song, this time by Frankie Cosmos. Put together with three different synthesizers, and as HAPPY TRENDY puts it a “cardiac muscle” with a warm lo-fi fuzz laid over the top of it, this cover is headphone music at its best. I would highly suggest you just go to HAPPY TRENDY’s Soundcloud page and just press play because its all really good, but you can also go to his bandcamp and stream some EP’s there.
