Huntleys + Palmers (Sophie, Auntie Flo) first release of 2014 comes from anonymous producer DrumTalk - a hugely listenable tussle between exuberance & melancholy. Take a listen ^.
Italian producer Lorenzo Badioli used to go by the moniker Diadainconsupertrafra - obviously this was far too difficult to pronounce or think about, so he's come up with the much shorter alternative Peekaboo. I was going to choose just one of the 3 tracks below to stream but it was genuinely too difficult, each track is characterised by that same wonderful atmosphere whilst throwing a unique range of subtly complex beats & loops into the mix. Take a listen below:
These blissful plucks and glitches come from Canterbury-based producer/ Delta Sleep bassist Maria Sullivan & are taken from her 5-track Mechanica EP which is up for free download over at Bandcamp. Listen below and click back <<< for the download.
Just over a year ago, Boston-based boy/girl duo Cry Guy put out a series of stunning debut tracks (this one in particular) which were overlooked more than anything. A year later, they're back with the equally beautiful Memento Mori - the first track taken from their upcoming record, take a listen.
Before Dauwd's Kindlinn EP drops on April 7th via Kompakt, we get to wrap our ears around “Lydia” - a melodious gem of a track which just proves that the London-based producer keeps getting better and better, with no sign of slowing down.
I hear a little nod towards Mount Kimbie's Made to Stray on this super nice Coal Lung remix by 16 year-old Kyross. The Vancouver producer challenges any hint of predictable expectation by completely reversing the tempo in the second half, pushing the track further into its own & unveiling true talent.
