Fellow Angeleno, Kill Paris, is back with another release on OWSLA; this time leaning into the R&B world with some sexy vocals from two collaborators, Marty Rod and Alma. The single comes as a taste of his upcoming EP due out this fall on the aforementioned label. Hoping the other tracks on the release keep this vibe going.

A mysterious new trio has emerged from the West London underground to bring us a 5 track ep of what can only be described as indie-experimental electronic RnB.

Definitely one of the more interesting and original EPs I have heard in a while.
And if their music isn’t captivating enough check out the simple, yet visually stunning video for the title track “Responsible” after the jump!
While the London duo, SNAKEHIPS, still haven’t revealed their identities, their music is rapidly being recognized around the world, including a biggup from Flume and a spot on iTunes Top 15 Electronic chart for their maiden single, “On & On,” which we posted about back in April. As the guys announced on their Soundcloud, they’ve put together this little beat called “Make It” to tide us over until their next single, which I’m expecting to be a top 5 summer tune, no doubt.

Here’s what Ryno’ had to say about his production:
In light of the recent ‘Crack Cocaine’ scandal Our Mayor Rob Ford has been associated with. I decided to produce this satirical track for this bizarre moment our great city of Toronto has been given. Enjoy!
Coyote Kisses, the florida based “space punk” duo, are back with Thundercolor, a 4 track EP that dropped last week!
