Artist Spotlight: Kahn n Neek

Last week, I had the good luck to attend the LA edition of the Deep Medi label’s 10th anniversary tour. Founded by dubstep stalwart Mala, the label showcases some of today’s finest grime, dub, and dubstep tunes. One of my favorite sets from the night came from grime duo Kahn n Neek. Dark, menacing, and frantic, their […]

Sam Binga – Mix Block Mix

Sam Binga is a truly rare species: a producer that maintains a frenetic release pace without sacrificing quality. Along with the many previews and premiers that you’ll find on his soundcloud, a mix or two beckons. The ‘Mix Block Mix’ is a fine sampling of Binga’s production and preferences, with everything from grime to mad […]

sir Was – a Minor Life

Dreamy and haunting, ‘a Minor Life’ landed in my inbox this morning, and I just can’t stop listening. With a number of different melodic elements, including bagpipes, synths, and the soaring voice of Was himself (I assume, as it’s pretty much impossible to find any information on Was at the moment, besides the fact that he […]

Leon Vynehall – Kiburu’s

Travel back in time on this beautiful odyssey from Leon Vynehall, little-known in the States but due for his first Essential Mix later this week. Hectic and dreamy all at once, this track could do some serious work come 4 AM. Or 2 PM. Or anytime, for that matter. A gem – check it out below. […]

Artist Spotlight: Dasha Rush

I stumbled across Dasha Rush by way of Australia’s Rainbow Serpent Festival a few months ago (she was the techno headliner, a well-deserved slot). The Russian producer has earned a reputation for herself by carving out melancholy, brooding tracks across genres ranging from techno to ambient, although her live sets pack quite the punch. 10 […]

Perverse – Aye Aye

Dubstep is alive. Alive and kicking. While you won’t hear too much low-end coming from festival speakers in the States, underground shows the world over still play homage to perhaps the darkest of bass genres. Here with some proof is Perverse, a duo out of Auckland that regularly churns out high-quality broken beat tunes. Aye Aye, dark […]

My Nu Leng & Flava D – Soul Shake

UK Garage stalwarts My Nu Leng team up with bass legend Flava D for this monster of a track. Jackin’ high hats and a thumping beat keep the track moving as reese bass fills the low end. All told, it’s exactly what you’d expect from these artists. Check it out below, and while you’re at it, […]

Lapalux – CUTS Vol. 1

Lapalux, considered one of the most innovative beatmakers in the world, treated fans to incredible music in 2015. On ‘Cuts Vol. 1,’ the producer put out some dance-floor ready bangers – dark, brooding, hyphy as they come. Unlike the restrained, soundscape-y vibes of his albums, these are all fun and games. Thank you Brainfeeder. Check them out […]

Bloom – Citric Acid

Another outstanding effort from Sydney’s very own Bloom, ‘Citric Acid’ is quite the trip. Shimmering synths that might be just as at home in a Shpongle set as they are atop this menacing techno track might be the most recognizable feature of the composition, but there’s plenty to draw you in underneath. Check it out […]

John Frusciante Announces Jungle EP

This is something new. Acclaimed guitarist John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili Peppers has been dabbling in electronic music for some time now, releasing a record of acid house last year and, recently, putting out a collection of complex experimental sound a la Squarepusher. Today came the announcement that a 4-track jungle EP, ‘Foregrow’ […]
