Volor Flex & Encode – Altiplano EP

Volor Flex teams up with fellow Russian producer Encode (who some of you may recognise from his stomping drum & bass productions) to give us the Altiplano EP for Dark Clover. Fusing elements of dark ambient, garage and downtempo, the tone of the work feels reminiscent of Burial, but that’s not to say that the EP is simply copycatting […]

Lung – Wait Less Suspense

Posted on

Cardiff-based producer Lung‘s debut LP for Med School landed a couple of weeks ago and yielded what I can only describe as mixed blessings. When he gets it right, the young talent really hits the mark, but too many of the songs over-indulge in formulaic vocals for the work to feel consistent or innovative. This […]

Specimen A – Tamahawk EP

Never slowing down, the impressive and powerful production team we know as Specimen A, dropped their newest EP earlier this week on the prestigious Rottun Records. Since the label is known mostly for ground-breaking dubstep releases, it was a mild surprise to realize that though they are both quite impressive, neither of the tracks on […]

Posted on

Glasgow blog/netlabel/DJ collective Phuturelabs are gearing up to drop their ninth release, which comes from Edinburgh-based ComputerScheisse. Previously acting as one third of FOUND, Tommy Pearson’s first solo works will arrive in late July. The EP is a great little musical journey, wandering through a veritable smorgasbord of influences without feeling the need to be pigeon-holed to a single […]

Floex – Pocustone

Posted on

The discovery of Floex‘s 2001 record Pocustone on the back of it’s impending reissue has been an absolute delight. Blending jazz, downtempo electronica and generally soulful vibes to great effect, this is one of the most beautiful and sonically articulate electronic records I’ve heard in a while. Favourable comparisons can easily be made with the […]

Boy Kid Cloud: ‘ME/ME/ME/MIX’

I’ve always been a fan of Boy Kid Cloud, With ‘Feel High’ and ‘Feel High VIP’ probably being two of my favorite tracks of his. Consistently, he has shown that he’s not limited to one style of EDM, producing all over the genre spectrum. To celebrate the release of his latest single ‘6am / I […]

GRiZ – Gettin’ Live

If you’re looking for an epic summertime anthem now that winter is finally retreating, then you’re definitely going to want to check out Gettin’ Live, the newest song from trip hop DJ GRiZ. GRiZ’s signature glitchy sound and slower bpm count really shine through on this track, making it the perfect fit for lazy summer […]

Sabato – The Wizard EP

The Wizard EP is the debut release of British electronic producer Sabato, and I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with Sabato (aka Dan Holmes) about this EP, and also getting to listen to it early. Certain aspects of the release seem reminiscent of other artists: the harmonic melodies remind me of C418; the upbeat funk […]

MNDR – Feed Me Diamonds (RAC Remix)

No exaggeration- I love everything that RAC produces. So when MNDR’s “Feed Me Diamonds” was remixed, it was an immediate purchase. RAC successfully took the contagious single by the electric pop NYC duo and impregnated it with funk. The combination of MDNR’s hypnotic vocals, catchy lyrics, and RAC’s downtempo beats are enough to make you […]
