I’m obsessed with Rambo V’s latest work, “Rincón.” Worldly percussion, beautiful synths, and entrancing vocal chops come together to create a feel good atmosphere that you won’t want to leave. The Los Angeles producer has been pumping out a lot of good stuff as of late, so keep you eye on him.
This “Your Girl” remix is something else. It’s by the artists Violet Days x Win and Woo. These two producers make the perfect team, just tune in and you’ll see why. Stream it here!
This new drop by Tom Aspaul is sounding sick. The intro to “Burnt Out” is an awesome melodic kind of chord progression. And it’s gets your head moving, pushing the anticipation for the main section to kick in. From then on Tom Aspaul has you hooked and takes it away. Listen up!
Two names that surely stood out from the collection of indie electronic songs this summer were WHETHAN and OLIVER TREE. WHETHAN had a late summer smash in “Can’t Hide” featuring Ashe, and OLIVER TREE had an impressive vocal feature on Getter’s “Forget It.” The two have now teamed up for “When I’m Down,” which may be one of the most impressive collaborations we’ve seen this year.
Combining a simple piano melody with infectious rhythm, reflective production quality, and some incredibly catchy vocal lines, “When I’m Down” is yet another indie electronic masterpiece from both artists. You can listen to the track below, and support the track and the artists on Apple Music, Spotify, and iTunes as well!
16-year-old producer/DJ Callie Reiff releases her remix of Sofi Tukker’s “Déjà Vu Affair,” due out Monday, October 17th for free download. The NYC-bred bass prodigy has been staying on the grind after the release of her recent EP on Fool’s Gold Records, which included two infectious works – a bass-crazed single, “Shadow Dancing,” and her collaboration with KANDY on “Jawbreaker.” Her magnetic sound continues to seize the attention of the masses, earning her the highest number of views on Complex’s Facebook live stream and leading her to perform shoulder to shoulder with Skrillex during NYFW. With every release, Callie seems to have no hesitancy in setting her own bar so highly and slaying conventional genre boundaries.
In her remix of Sofi Tukker’s “Déjà Vu Affair,” Callie Reiff transforms the original’s lethargic character by injecting a canorous, hallucinatory effect. Hollow, resonating beats lead into a foundation of hypnotic percussion and a driving 4/4 beat before falling into a boundless union of beautifully chopped vocals and modulated synths.
Earlier this year, Callie put out a few outstanding releases, including her single, “Tin Machine” with Ronaissance, via NEST. On top of her own productions, she has also continued to bolster her profile further with notable DJ gigs like a self-hosted Dancing Astronaut x Fool’s Gold live stream that featured surprise sets from Brillz and Ghastly, a back-to-back with Mija at Output two months ago, and a support slot at Big Gigantic’s show at Terminal 5 this past spring, amongst others.
While scrolling through Soundcloud, I stumbled upon DJ Jeremy de Koste’s latest track, ‘Cool’ (ft. St. P And Black Cross) and my entire mood transformed from tired and dreary to energetic and excited. Seriously though, this song was exactly what I needed to add some pep into my step. Check it out and see for yourself.
I’ve been in a bit of a music slump for the past week, unsatisfied with any of the tunes I’ve recently found. But all of that changed when I heard this track. The combination of the rhythmic hip-hop verses, sensual female vocals, voluminous drops, and layers of synths creates a combination unlike anything I’ve ever heard. My music slump is gone (woo hoo!) thanks to TastyTreat and Kid Lizard’s track “U And Me” (ft. Madi & Malcolm Anthony.) Check it out!
Selected Sounds recently released their first compilation called Budapest Selected. The collection of music has many shining gems, but one track to really catch my ear was MOM by Yvein Monq AKA Gryllus Ábris. In addition to being a talented graphic designer, this guy throws down some robust footwork beats. Check out the track here.
We all know Monday’s sorta suck, but they can suck less if you have the right soundtrack to get you going. Luckily, we’ve got the perfect soundtrack that will keep the good vibes flowing all throughout the day. Check out the Nowadays Vol. 6, your ears will thank you later.
Originally growing up in San Francisco, currently living in New York City Chris Cruz is an extremely talented and slept on music producer who goes by the name of Element. While we’ve covered some prior material by the upcoming artist, his latest drop “Dimensions,” in my honest opinion, is his best work to date. The overall demeanor of Cruz’ new record is spooky and intense, like something that would be played as an evil genius was up to no good.
