A Dark, Moody, and Better Steve Angello

Last April, when I was on my way to Coachella, I received an email from Steve Angello‘s PR people recommending I catch his set, promising a drastically changed sound and a much darker tone.

Space Jesus – Sycamore

  Experimental bass artist Space Jesus released his album, ‘Close Encounters,’ in November of last year. The album’s bass heavy sound, glitchy vocals and psychedelic synth production, makes it extremely encapsulating.

sir Was – a Minor Life

Dreamy and haunting, ‘a Minor Life’ landed in my inbox this morning, and I just can’t stop listening.
