The Daily Playlist for October 31, 2017

  • Les Inferno ‘What Do You Think (Dub)’
  • Earlier this month, De Gama’s Samosa imprint released their second offering, a four-track EP from emerging producer and label co-founder Pierandrea The Professor under his Les Inferno moniker. Titled Everything I Do / What Do You Think, the EP features two versions of two classic house jams in “Everything I Do” and “What Do You Think.” On […]
  • SIYONI & Tazzy – Stay Young
  • You can always trust Elysian to deliver some of the dopest electronic trap music out there…this new joint from  SIYONI is a perfect example as he infuses haunting melodies into clattering percussion. Tazzy provides a perfect complement to the hazy atmosphere with powerful vocals that have a dramatic edge. The red fountain on the album […]
  • Young & Sick – “Ojai” // Maciek Jasik
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Maciek Jasik [via] “Ojai” hides introspective, somber lyrics hide amidst party-starting bass and percussion – which is oddly appropriate, with lines such as “Almost alone if it wasn’t for the neon”. Young & Sick balances his skills as a positive pop-smith with heady concepts, and the results give you something to […]
  • Baba Ali – “I’ve Been Voodoo’d” // Kehinde Wiley
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Kehinde Wiley [via] A blues song first, an electronic song second, Baba Ali revives the blues into full swing with his poignant and infectious track, “I’ve Been Voodoo’d.”  With a classic structural and melodic blues composition format (Boom-claps, anyone?) tinged with electronic production and contemporary lyricism, Baba Ali has built a […]
  • Slum Sociable – “Moby Bryant” // Tishk Barzanji
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Tishk Barzanji [via] Slum Sociable‘s “Moby Bryant” is one part indie pop song, one part electronica-dance pop song. They manage to use memorable lines performed by various instruments layered upon each other to create a gradual, beautiful build up into a dense final product.  Give it a go whenever you’re feeling […]
  • Cautious Clay – “Joshua Tree” // Tanmaya Bingham
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Tanmaya Bingham [via] “Joshua Tree” is a deeply atmospheric and epic, evoking the sounds of classic indie pop/rock grounded in R&B and soul.  Creating a beautiful yet cynical anthem to individuality, Cautious Clay lets their listeners transcend their empowerment beyond the emotion and into the astral dimension.  
  • [Indie] argonaut&wasp – Prove It To You / Body Sensations
    3:13, via The Music Ninja
  • [Indie] argonaut&wasp – Prove It To You / Body Sensations
    3:13, via The Music Ninja
  • Our Brooklyn buddies argonaut&wasp have come through with two groovy jams released on Bang! Jango Records. Their double single project is … Continue reading »
  • SUMif – IDW
    3:13, via Audio Drums
  • Wait for the chorus to drop on this.  It slowly builds the tense and the payoff land around the 1.11 mark.   Really good use of dynamics and tension.
  • YELLE – ROMEO
    3:13, via Audio Drums
  • Big fan of Yelle with their own brand of electronic/ french pop that always has a slight twist to set it apart. Got the latest Lyric Video for their new song “Romeo”
