Kendrick Lamar - Cartoon & Cereal →
One of the best albums, let alone rap albums last year was certainly Kendrick Lamar’s Section.80. It was a release that was filled with emotion, ambition, fear and existentialism that shone through its beautiful production work. Songs off the album like “HiiiPower” will likely remain a relevant tune for years to come. Lamar recently posted a new track which features a couple...
Napolian - Rejoice EP STREAM →
Another new artist on Brooklyn’s Software Label, Napolian is turning heads in the electronic world with his Rejoice EP that came out late January. I posted the synth soaked track “My Refuge” a little while back, and it hasn’t lost any flavour on me since then. The rest of Rejoice proved to be as nostalgic feeling with its sensual tones and soft production. Producers like...
Slava - Soft Control EP STREAM →
Software, Dan Lopatin and Joel Fords new record label looks like it will be releasing some pretty juicy material this year. A few days back, Brooklyn producer Slava released his debut EP on Software “Soft Control”, which is filled with modular sounds and synths as well as an array of sampling. Seeing as this is the debut for Slava (not Salva), I will be looking forward to anything...
Drake - Crew Love ft The Weeknd (Shlohmo Remix) →
L.A’s Shlohmo does some oh-so-beautiful justice to “Crew Love”, which was featured on Drakes 2011 LP Take Care. Check out the remix below.
Bon Iver, with the help of Fallon’s late night band The Roots add some spice to the track “Perth”, and carry it out to about the 8 minute mark. This is a true example of musicianship, wow.

Air - Le Voyage Dans La Lune ALBUM STREAM →
Stream the album HERE Air just recently put their newest album up for stream over at NPR. After the first listen, it is certainly one of the most interesting albums thus far in 2012. It’s hard to pinpoint a genre, its a pretty gentle blend of pop and indie with some alternative sensibilities. At times the album takes on a eerie and disguised sound that bounces back with tracks like...
January Essentials →
Hey guys, I know I’m a bit late on this one, but January was a surprisingly great month in music and a solid start to 2012. Aside from some February album leaks, January was jam-packed with a load of great albums from a bunch of different genres. If you haven’t listened to any of these releases, they are definitely worth a check out. Grimes - Visions (Arbutus Records) Cloud...

CFCF - Excercise #3 (Building) →
I apologize for not posting this the other day, a new track from Montreal’s CFCF. He carries this track into a state of intense bliss as he does with everything he touches.
Totally Enourmous Extinct Dinosaurs - Tapes and... →
TEED is one artist that I got into a couple years back, and since then I always figured that once he grew in popularity he would become more centered in the insane electro-culture in the UK. It seems as if he wants to prove influence still with the great pop sensibilities that he adds to his music, which is something i’m digging. No word of any kind of full length has been released, but...
Daedelus - Drummery Jam →
A great new jam dropped the other day from producer Daedelus, and it just has to be the grooviest jam of the year. It’s called “Drummery Jam” and makes me want to sneak around and get into trouble.
Guards - Do It Again
Zambri - ICBYS
Shlohmo - wen uuu (Salva Remix) →
Another cut from Shlohmo’s coming EP Vacation, this is Salva’s take on the track “wen uuu”. The EP is out February 14 on Friends of Friends.
Evian Christ - Kings and Them Mixtape →
Tri-Angle is easily one of the best record companies around, since they brought amazing acts like Balam Acab, Clams Casino and oOoOO to everyones speakers and turntables. Their newest signing, which happened only days ago is with Evian Christ, who had been making waves via youtube early this year. As a way to promote their newest artist, Tri-Angle released a free mixtape by Evian Christ, which...
