It’s easy to get excited about a band like Jungle. Their sound is unlike anything else available at the moment, and that’s not to say it doesn’t sound like anything I’ve ever heard before. Their combination of tones and rhythms, though, makes this album an unusual auditory experience, and that’s something I can respect. It’s the funk and soul of our parents time, with their darkened chord progressions and soaring psychedelic vocals initiating their sound into the 21st century. At their core, they’re a collective, a troupe of funkadelic comrades led by members J & T, united by their groovy soundscapes. Continue Reading

London production duo, BILLON, bring the pump in their latest release forthcoming on Rinse. The track features a driving kick and sexy spirited vocals from Ashley as the chorus ushers in a crunchy wobble and for a bit of a Gorgon City effect. With support from The Magician in his latest Magic Tape, this isn’t one to sleep on!
It’s like Chet Faker meets Justin Vernon, SOHN’s sound, making his music quite the enchanting experience. Above you’ll see 20 minutes of so of what it takes to create his music on the spot. Live keyboards, guitar, vocals, sampling, it’s no easy feat, yet SOHN blends it all together seamlessly and melodically in true transcendent fashion. Click play, tune out, and escape for a bit to the sounds of Vienna’s rising creative talent.
While Amtrac tends to find himself on remix duty for most of the year, it goes without saying that he also sneaks in a couple original tracks all his own. His forthcoming release is a two piece EP on the esteemed Armada imprint. Possibly his best work to date, he’s really falling into his own and it’s quite a pleasure to hear him hone his craft. Locked in grooves complimented with some ace sound design make this an extremely well polished package that drops on June 2nd. For those heading out to Palm Springs for Splash House, be on the look out for Amtrac’s poolside set.
Here for your listening pleasure is Gorgon City‘s latest production, “Here For You,” featuring that signature Gorgon thump and a garage-y bass synth line. They set the stage perfectly for an other worldly vocal performance from Welsh that brings about an air of summer versus their otherwise peak set club anthems. Available for pre-order, be sure to capture this pocket full of sunshine before the season enters full swing and be sure to bump on your way down to Indio this weekend.
After a successful night with the Sweat It Out crew for our Miami party we’re excited to announce some new music featuring two young stunnas from the Sweat fam. Frames couldn’t make it to the show himself (someone needs to hold shit down for the Sweat crew in Syd while we’re all in Miami) but he’s blessed us with the perfect summer celebration of the perfect party – Pacifique, the lead track from his 3 track EP of the same name
A huge thanks to all that came out – We’ll be seeing you again next year 100%
My love for The Bloody Beetroots has blossomed yet again. I had the opportunity to catch an unplugged set the last time they were in Hollywood, and seeing this softer side to the musicians was pretty surreal. I mean, usually you have Sir Bob and co. rippin’ and tearin’ around on stage yellin’ god knows what and rockin’ that shit like it’s still the 80′s and metal is still cool as fuck. But beneath it all are some amazingly talented musicians (no surprise here), and this track with Theophilus London really hammers that point home. Jazz, hip-hop, rock drums, back up singers, WHAT IS THIS! I don’t know, but I’m into it. Rock on.
Copenhagen’s very own KANT inserts his own feels in last years summer anthem from French production duo, Klingande and their wildly popular single, “Jubel.” At first listen it’s hard to recognize the track that marked the best of times last year, but the ripened saxophone vibes render the dormant nostalgia. A heavy wobble accompanied by a punchy bass lead echoes melodically as virtually unrecognizable vocals belt out the verse. Warner Music has the hook on the official release come May 12th, consider yourself warned!
The once mysterious, now not so mysterious, Route 94 is back on that production grind with a new release on Defected Records that follows suit to its predecessor, “My Love.” Less anthemic, but equally as club ready, “Tell You Why,” features a bassline that can hold its own on the dance floor as pitched up vocals set a sultry tone for the production. With his “Fly 4 Life” EP out soon on Defected, you can be sure to find this tune alongside other Route 94 originals at the end of this month.
Steel Drums, orchestral strings, and a punchy love driven melody decorate Breton’s newest release “Envy” in eclectic fashion for a melting pot of scrumptious musical stew. The multimedia electro-rock outfit is back in tip-top shape after escaping to Iceland in 2012 to record their debut LP at Sigur Ros’ Sundlaugin studio with a renewed energy and aura around their sound. With just a bite of their Sophomore LP War Room Stories in this pretty little ditty, it is safe to say the stage has been set for an even more monumental second go at it. Preorder the LP in digital form here, physical form here.
