EP: Nvthlss – My paris / Lifetime vol 2

Of all the artists we’ve featured on The Up-Turn there are probably none that we’ve posted about of been following for longer than parisian producer Nvthlss.  As a result I was starting to worry that I’d run out of things to write about him and consequently that his frequent releases were starting to blur together.  Then my jaw dropped while …

mp3: Howl – Forever

Honestly, words won’t get me very far in trying to describe this new track from Howl which was premiered by the very cool dudes of Life is a Banana.  How’s atmospheric? Yeah, doesn’t help much I guess.  “Forever” doesn’t allow itself to ever settle although it isn’t necessarily dynamic or constantly changing either.  It’s almost like Howl captured the moment …

EP: Nvthlss – Lifetime vol 1

A lot of promising beatmakers have come and faded since the time we’ve been covering Nvthlss and it was starting to look like Nvthlss would never fade but would be content to release new music at a dizzying pace.  He’s constructed his own world of music without ever seeming to look back.  His growth has been charted with a lot …

EP: NVTHLSS x OVRDZ – F2i

If you’re at all familiar with the work of NVTHLSS, than F2i probably won’t be coming out of left field for you.  If anything, NVTHLSS’ impressively sized catalog of beats and tapes are a demonstration of just how well an artist can define his own sound through constant recording, releasing and refining.  F2i is not the solo material of NVTHLSS …

EP: Nvthlss – Snare autumn pt. 1

This week has already been quite the amazing week for beats, however, no amazing beaties week would be complete without some new material from our favorite French beaties master Nvthlss.  Snare autumn takes Nvthlss’ already chilled out style back another jazzy notch to make it more appropriate for the colder weather and windier days that the autumn is brining.  Nvthlss even …

mp3: Dream Koala – Odyssey

If you only know Dream Koala from his stunning guitar soundscapes, “Odyssey” is probably going to be a surprise for you.  While “Odyssey” features the same meticulously crafted, gorgeously soothing guitar work we’ve come to expect, the real star of the song is Yndi’s vocal work.  “Odyssey” has Dream Koala himself stepping in front of the guitar haze and demonstrating …
