In this column, I cover songs for you to nod your head to in the EDM scene [electronic dance music, not extra dancey music, for those not in the know].
Dark Sky “In Brackets”
London trio Dark Sky are skilled at creating garage-overtoned, broken-beat minimalistic pieces–no wonder Bonobo featured this track in his Boiler Room set.
Cunnylinguists “In The City” feat. Zumbi
A new Cunnylinguists release is on the horizon–hip hop heads rejoice and this tranquil homage to the city promises great things. Strange Journey Volume Three promises to take us to a very special place.
Lapalux “Without You (Imagined Herbal Flows Remix)”
No stranger to this column, UK producer Lapalux will be releasing an album, Nostalchick, on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint [aka THE producer powerhouse label that can do no wrong] in March. Here, we find him remixing an Imagined Herbal Flows track in his signature way.
This is the first release by a newcomer from Nice, France, and the stuttering synths are lose-your-mind-over-worthy.
Mayo “Memories” (feat. Sydney Jay)
Way better than any of Drake’s drivel, 19 year-old-Chicago MC Mayo has a relaxing flow.
