Underrated funny guys and professional beard growers, Andhim, have been on a widely under publicized tour of the US (but I guess that’s what were here for?). They maintain an extreme level of authenticity by being tastefully terrible at social media and over the top groovy with their masterful originals. This spin on the classic, “Music Sounds Better With You,” is hard to tell if it’s serious or a joke but all I know is it’s up for free download and I’d totally rinse it..

With a lineup erupting with talent, featuring the likes of Darkside, Caribou, and Nils Frahm, I think it’s safe to say the Dimensions opening party bill was fraught for the spectacular. Having watched all three, though, it was Nils Frahm who stole the show with his magnificent opening set. The scene was very haunted in the 2000 year old Roman Amphitheater that these musicians were fortunate to call home for the evening, and Nils Frahm took full advantage. Donning two sets of keys and enough equipment to warp and loop his own work, it was breathtaking to watch him fuse the natural with the synthesized in such a monumental environment. Mesmerized, I hardly looked away for the full 45 minutes. Let’s see how you fare..

As the days get shorter and summer winds down – mellowed out house tracks take over my state of mind. This new Beshken jam feat. the lovely Soraya is the perfect tune to turn down to. It’s rhythm and house with vocals that undress you accompanied by groovy synth pads to decompress your daily grind. Out now on Next Wave Records, this is definitely the track to take on the Fall season.

Kill The Noise is the ultimate homie – and if you didn’t know that by now then peep this Boomrat playlist he curated and you’ll catch the drift. From rap to Marilyn Manson anything goes for tunes that tickle KTN’s fancy. Personally, this was a fun one to go through because of KTN’s immaculate taste in up and comers. It helped me expand my sonic horizon’s so I’m sure it’ll do the same for you!
