Polish producer Pham has released his EP Ugly and All My Time is the feature track, boasting downtempo electronica with cool vocals of Miami’s Austin Paul. In Pham’s own words, his sound is “making some kind of progress, it’s like Forest starting to run with his prosthetics and now he’s free without them”
Melbourne’s Ecca Vandal has given us a taste of her upcoming debut LP, with the first track Broke Days, Party Nights. Part rock, part punk, Vandal never fails to deliver explosive, energetic tunes that sound just as good on the dance-floor as in the mosh pit. This is no exception.
For anyone who thinks that dark electronic is completely male-dominated, meet Rezz, a 22 year old producer from Canada who has been producing some serious tracks over the past three years. After releasing two EPs in 2016, she’s finally releasing her debut album, Manipulation, this Friday (August 4th). Watch this space.
Holy Water is the second release from Norwegian pop star Gunelach this year, ahead of his upcoming EP. Like previous releases, Holy Water is haunting, dark and even a little abstract, but features an intense bass line which a bit more new to him. With the lyrics, Gundelach aims to create a vibe or feeling, rather than tell a story;
“It’s more of a feeling, something abstract. I get the same feeling every time I listen to it though. The same feeling I got when I listened to ‘Boris’ back in 2012.”
Canadian rapper, Madchild, released his fourth album, The Darkest Hour, on Friday. Produced entirely by Evidence, it is reminiscent of a more late 90s/early naughties hip hop sound ]m when Cypress Hill and Madvillain were “all that”. Aggressive and unapologetic, All I Know is a great closing song.
Texan duo, Bronze Whale rework what originally sounded like the kind of chilled out tune that I imagine a bunch a frat boys & girls having a singalong to whilst driving their convertible down a sunny street in California. Not meant to be an insult, just that it has that feelgood singalong vibe. It still has that feelgood, catchy quality, but now it’s become a certified banger.
It’s finally happening. Future Classic‘s Touch Sensitive is releasing a debut album. The Sydney based producer made the announcement via Facebook earlier today. Made famous by Pizza Guy in 2013, Touch Sensitive went quiet for a while, but re-emerged in late May to release Lay Down. The album, Visions, will be released September 15th, but until then, you this track should get you through.
Sweden’s favourite quartet, Little Dragon, are back and better than ever! Strobe Light is catchy, dreamy and saturated in dirty, funky synth. The film clip is also a worth while watch, challenging the outdated views on masculinity in South Africa (a crowd which Little Dragon have a particular affinity for them).
