Spaced Cowboy’s intergalactic adventures are based into some distorted, noisy and at the end brilliant ideas of how to make this trip worth! On ”Sunday Afternoon”the Grecian producer shares his kraut love affair with the public and joins into the psychedelic madness of ’70s space rock club without having to stretch his track into an odyssey of sounds! Who told you that you can’t play space rock in less than 4 minutes???

Cielo Azul creates these slow, ethereal and water based tunes that feels like they’ve popped out from some old and scratchy pages of an old, unread fairytale! The 20 year old producer from Atlanta, Georgia is setting the mood in his debut EP from the opening track. ”Intro//Old Friends” starts like a modern classical composition with its disposal piano sounds entering into an abandoned opera house right before the mind of Cielo Azul unveils its post rn’b weakness and lead us into a world of slo-mo beats with sirens calling your name!
Another cover from the Blade Runner soundtrack has hit the net. Grecian fellow Jackie Farrow and his project The Linear-A Experiment treat ”Blade Runner (End Titles)” like a religious act in the psychedelic circle of a space oddity! Weird and distant in Lynch-ian way but strangely beutiful with all the loneliness that it carries inside of it!!! Wonderful…

Here New Shouts are paying a visit to the golden surf age back to the ’60s and adopt a Beach Boys attitude grafted with some ’90s dream pop quitar lines! The result is a fiendish catchy and sunny pop song crafted with all the love and honor that it’s required. Sweet….

The experimental electronic duo from London gave away for free download a new track for your listening pleasure. Old Apparatus with ”Kocol” continue the dark and scary industrialised incursions in a deconstructed city with some twisted fixations! And we like it!!! Listen to this slow burning track and dark obsession for the underworld and stay tuned for a new release in the near future!
Mataqi’s aka Brad Buenen first effort i have to admit that is kind of impressive. From the very beginning, with the opening ”Wild As Wind”, you are transported into a shiny synth pop universe were Knife could be tragically happy and annoyingly uplifting! Somehow though this song sticks with you and makes you wanna carry this groove the whole summer!!!
The dark electronic duo .message returns with this amazing cover of ”Blush Response” by Vangelis from the Blade Runner soundtrack. Gone are the new age references from the original but it carries the same dark, suffocated and toxicated rhythmology of a lightless future! The Grecian duo brings on the floor some heavyweight bass driven perspective and along with the psychedelic synths that are spreading throughout the piece are about to launch this baby to a futureless outter space!!!
Far away from Buenos Aires is where Sobrenadar aka Paula Garcia composing and recording her little ethereal, dream pop gems. The ambient structures of ”Junio” are digging their way through the icy subconcious searching for some hot corners! Her vocals are radiating all the warmth you can bear, though in the beginning they seem distant and elusive. Allow yourself to get lost to these magical moments that Sobrenadar is so generously offering!
While just searching on the web i bumped into this young producer from Sweden and his debut EP, Leagues. Times like these is where i realise how much i love my internet connection!!! Walter Berge aka mercimer trapped me in his web of groove over some bass thinking beats and danceable rhythm sections in a uk garage style! ”Freak U” is probably the most uplifting track in the EP where it feels like an adrenaline injection made to you by an unknown force!!! Grab this groove and don’t let go!!!
Florida’s SKuFL did a pretty amazing job on this remix of ”Still Sound” by Toro Y Moi. His rhymes over the chilled out tunes makes the whole thing addictive as hell and it sounds more like a reconstruction then a remix! It’s like a ’70s soft porn soundtrack full of blurry visuals and romantic steams!!!! You cannot avoid it, so you better listen to it! Enjoy….
Today is the day that Equinox Records drops the second full length by UK producer Aaron Thomason aka 2econd Class Citizen. But just before its release they gave away a new single from the album to shake things up a little bit! ”No Destination” joins the two big loves of 2econd Class Citizen, the ’70s psychedelic folk instrumentation with the DJ Shadow’s hip hop dark tendencies resulting to a cinematic black shade of unchained melodies!
Young Latitudes just released this twisted split in digital format between Magic Fades and Veracom. Here you can stream the sick, haunted and trance-y rn’b vibes painted in dark gold of ”I’ll Adjust” by Portland’s duo Magic Fades and reach deep down to their black soul!!!
Though here it looks more like winter, B▲D▲’s music make it feel more like summer! Seattle resident Ethan Young is trying to capture the essence of the ideal indie pop singalong on ”Kids On The Run” and i think he’s done it! Catchy synth lines and rhythmic handclaps are here to uplift your inner self along with these more-pop-i-could-die vocals that set the start of the summer!!! Cheerful and sunny all the way….
Female vocalist/producer Elisha Van Rijswijk aka Ddarque brings some dark, trippin’ and psychedelic fusions embellished with the weird/spooky vocals of hers that upgrades the whole story to another level! Ddarque’s newest song ”Blinded” is a scary dub pop song full of tribal elements that penetrates through a musical universe where trip hop was the king and queen! Simply stunning!!!!
After he introduced himself with his debut track ”Ashram”, the 22 year old from India just released his Desert EP via his bandcamp page. Shah Margand his blown-out funk tendencies are blended here with the ’70s psychedelic navigations of modern experimentalists! Check out ”Bracelet”, a groovy and trippin’ monster with its roots buried in kraut underground, and click here to stream the whole EP.
The track above is responsible for making me feel chills all over my body and SELA. gets all the credits! The unknown producer from the U.S. on ”Persson (Slow)” approaches an Isaac Hayes style (Ike’s Mood era!) and within two minutes delivers a sentimental, soulful and distinctive soul beat mastepiece of blaxploitation sounds!!! Cheers…
