• Monarch by Shapeshifter (Opiuo Remix)

    December 15, 2013 Ben

    Fact: Opiuo is a funk god. From his euphorically sweaty live shows to every glitched-out track, he imbues his craft with a warmness and sense of wonder rare in electronic music. In his Monarch remix, Opiuo has managed to marry the swelling chords and soulful singing of the original with his own upbeat funk rhythms before…

    December 10, 2013 zac

    Last December, Loci Recordings, started by Emancipator, put out their first release, Tor’s Drum Therapy. The album really blew me away, and snuck in as a last minute favorite of 2012. Drum Therapy has a very organic feel to it, constructed of mostly acoustic instruments yet arranged in a format more similar to dance music.…

  • Flight Facilities – Stand Still feat. Micky Green (Wave Racer Remix)

    December 10, 2013 Ben

    Wave Racer has been at the forefront of 2013’s resurgence of lush, nostalgic bass music. Think of Wave Racer as the footwork counterpart to Trippy Turtle‘s excursions in Jersey club music, both genres relying on repetition and staccato kicks which lend danceability to their glistening soundscapes. His remix of Stand Still is no different, from the…

  • Snubluck – Growth

    December 7, 2013 zac

    Growth is the title of Snubluck’s new EP off Far Arden Recordings. Although not a name I was familiar with previously, I am really excited by this Denver based producer. Combining the proper ratio of mellow and weird, Growth has a lazy day feel, something you put on the morning after staying out all night. Snubluck warps…

  • Bukez Finezt – Introduction

    December 4, 2013 Ben

    Bukez Finezt needs no introduction to the dubstep crowd, this German producer has been killing it for years, but he is relatively unknown outside that scene. For you newbies, Introduction is a fitting… introduction… to his sound. Always original, always wonky, Bukez kills the melody on this tune with twinkling, high-pitched bleeps that delicately dance around…

This tune is all over the place in all the right ways, with floaty feel-good melodies, ethereal vocals, and a restrained-but-serious horned-out bassline. The hype around these dudes…
