Wisp – D33J

LA’s D33J‘s, aka Djavan Santos, debut album Death Valley Oasis dropped last week (out via Anticon) which featured this track with Baths. It’s fun, bouncy and addictive.


Paresthesia – Wild Ones

Wild Ones are a Portland five-piece that about to become your new favourite band. You might initially think that Parasthesia is your typical, forgettable indie band track, completed by soothing female vocals, but with it’s experimental electronic elements and catchy chorus, it’s anything but. Their album Mirror Touch will be released in October through Top Shelf records.

Woke – Tiga

Canadian producer Tiga released his third track of the year on Friday.  Tiga said of Woke;

Woke is a song about freedom, specifically my freedom. About me, at the end of the earth, pushed towards a final act of emancipation: throwing my phone into the sea, and watching it sink. People may have a hard time empathizing with a successful DJ, or anyone who associates an annoying buzzword with anything approaching enlightenment. But I don’t think it’s that hard to relate to feeling like you’ve entered into a lopsided bargain with a magic box that is more or less designed to hack its way into your self-image.

I think that actually a lot of us can empathise (or at least sympathise) with throwing our phones into the sea.

Therapy – Yaeji

Part dreamy pop, part punchy electronica, part chilled out disco, Yaeji’Therapy is hard to pin down. She’s been flying under the radar so far, but expect that to change as this South Korean Discwoman continues to make unique and quality music.
