mp3: snacs – new alchemy

Last weekend The Up-Turn had its first showcase on a rooftop in Brooklyn, and one of the many amazing performers who came out was Snacs, who put on a vibe-heavy set that went perfectly with the twilight skyline surrounding us (pictured above).  Today Snacs released this track which I believe was in that set.  With “new alchemy” Snacs doesn’t really …

mp3: Dream Koala – Hipster Girl (Taquwami Remix)

Dream Koala‘s music in general usually has an airy and dreamy feel, and “Hipster Girl” was probably the most airy cut off of his recent Blur EP, consisting of a light instrumental layered under his heavily-reverbed falsetto vocals, not that there is anything wrong with that.  For the remix, Japanese producer Taquwami beefed the track up a lot.  Now Dream Koala’s vocals …

mp3: King Dinosaur – The Night (Ambassadeurs Remix)

It looks as though Ambassadeurs has no plans on slowing down his winning streak with this new remix.  This time the British producer has taken on fellow countryman King Dinosaur’s dark track “The Night” and kicked it up a few notches.  Once again, Ambassadeurs music is still pretty difficult to categorize other than by calling it really good electronic music; with …

Mixtape: Ghost Row – Elevator Muzik

If you haven’t heard yet, beat maker extraordinaire, Color Plus, and rapper Chef the Chef have teamed up to form Ghost Row.  If you’re familiar with Color Plus and his fantastic Cerulean Dream EP, you know how talented he is at making atmospheric, almost ambient instrumental tracks to stand on their own, but Color Plus is more versatile than just that. …
