I was truly taken aback when I first heard Mosh‘s full-length album Monarchy. I felt like I had time-traveled back to 2007, when French electro acts like Justice and SebastiAn ruled the roost. I remember after Cross dropped a plethora of people began to experiment with DAWs, attempting to recreate those magical rock-inspired French grooves. Now nearly five years later, Mosh has succeeded where most have failed.
Mosh’s album Monarchy is a true full-length album. Mosh has not only managed to make Monarchy listenable in its entirety, but has also made it enjoyable from start to finish. Monarchy encapsulates everything that made 2007 seem so special, throws it into a blender and serves it up cold. The album really has it all: hip-hop inspired house beats, dark distorted bass lines, head-nodding grooves, and most importantly, power.
Mosh was also kind enough to put together an exceptional mix just for you. Both his album and the mix are available for FREE download below.

The day has finally come! Flying Lotus‘ second full-length album, Until the Quiet Comes has finally dropped and it has already exceeded my extremely high expectations set by Cosmogramma. The Los Angeles native, known for his genre-bending compositions, has outdone even himself this time; fusing a mixture of hip-hop, jazz, funk, blues, dubstep and psychedelia together to produce an unique cosmic sound. Until the Quiet Comes is a journey. A journey through a psychedelic soundscape that slowly builds on itself with the addition of every new sound and then jerks you back into reality, only to slowly bring you back, note by note. The album offers no dull moments as it continuously stimulates its listener with Flying Lotus’ unparalleled compositions, stunning even the most scrutinizing of ears. Until the Quiet Comes is a real gem; from the dirty low end of Sultan’s Request, the breath-taking change up of The Nightcaller, or the pure and jazzy melodic vibrations of Until the Quite Comes, this album is gorgeous. Until the Quiet Comes may just be my album of the year; I cannot recommend it enough.

Dj Tennis‘ new EP, The Outcast came out the other week and I finally got down to really checking it out today. Every track is stellar, but my favorite by far had to be Morgan Geist‘s take on the original powerhouse tune. Morgan Geist’s remix is one of those rare gems that just keeps building on itself; adding layer after layer of melodically driven synths that compliment each other further and further. It’s simple, tune is a dancefloor beast.
