Odesza and Monsoosiren, two acts that never cease to amaze me when it’s time for them to drop music, now together on the one track. The production duo of Catacombkid and BeachesBeaches (together known as Odesza) are gearing up to release their next album, In Return, which is now up for pre-order along with a download of the sun soaked single Sun Models as well as the brand new Memories That You Call. Get these into your ears now. In Return coming September 5. Enjoy.
The other day I said that LUUUL was preparing to release a project with French producer Petit Biscuit. This is someone who I’ve heard before (on things like Moose Records latest Moosetape) but have never really dove into, for no reason in particular. So I figured it was about time, do yourself a favour and give him a listen now; start with his newest, Brumes, but his whole soundcloud is of the highest quality and definitely worth checking out. Enjoy.
With three songs in the last two weeks Shawn Chrystopher is definitely coming back from his The Lovestory LP. LAlien and What’s The Move both see Shawn Chrys going in over some perfectly suited classic beats (Elevators and 93 ’til Infinity respectively) and the most recent release, Did It Twice, brings out some original material with Shawn linking up with his producer Zaire Koalo. Enjoy.
Our man K.I.N.E.T.I.K. has linked up with producer Jeremy Arey (formerly Kuroisoul) and resurrected some rhymes written back in 2009 over the nostalgia laced beat. These two worked together on last year’s superb Hip Hop Is Forever (which is now has instrumentals available) so should know the quality to expect. Head to K.I.N.E.T.I.K.‘s Facebook for ‘25 Facts About Whole Life Ahead Of Me‘ to get an idea about what went into making this track. Keep an ear out for K.I.N.E.T.I.K.‘s next single, Just Another Day, coming on the 15th, this time with Imperial behind the boards. Enjoy.
You should remember Summer Lights from a little while back, as it happens that amazingly produced track flowing with a pristine summers day has been bundled up with two other like minded tracks to create Listen To The Sea. This isn’t the last we’ll hear from LUUUL this year, with a collaborative album with Petit Biscuit set to be released in September. Check out a preview of that album below, Panama. Enjoy.
We saw my mate Jon Lau on here last year with his chilled out Foundations (worth a listen if you missed it), this time we have a first listen into his debut project that he’s been putting together over the past year. Accompanied by some great production and vocals, from Funky Thang and Cass respectively, JNGL LAW‘s founder goes in and gives us a little something to think about. Look out for that EP, coming soon. Enjoy.
You Won’t Be The One is the newest musical piece to come out from our mate Marksman Lloyd. Whiskey Winter on the hook, JL on production and of course Marksman pulling out some massive bars. Every time this guy releases something it ends up on repeat. Hit play to find out why. Head to Triple J for a download. Enjoy.
