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.
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.
I’m finally finished with my mid year exams and am beginning to find time to get back into the music, and what better way is there to reopen MatchMusik than with Tom Misch‘s official debut single. This also serves as the very first song to be released through the London based producer’s new label, Beyond The Groove. Memory is just under six minutes of pure instrumental bliss, with a short vocal segment that compliments Misch‘s production perfectly. Grab Memory off iTunes now. Enjoy.
Parisian producer, Kultur has but five songs out, but already he is sounding promising. His latest, Close To You is a chillstep piece from someone who has been exploring the many electronic sub-genres. Take a stroll through his soundcloud page and you’ll find a whole manner of things, and hopefully we can hear more on there in the near future. Enjoy.
I’m going to have to give it up for Believe In Sound for this beautiful find here, Arms is the debut release from L V M A. I do not know anything about who or what L V M A is, but I can tell you they hail from Bristol/Cardiff, they have three magical playlists on their soundcloud (Summer, Ambient and House) and that their song Arms is absurdly lovely and should be in your ears asap. Enjoy.
Hold me in your arms
The now solo project, Bedsides has released his newest piece of production. Sitting at just over nine minutes, At Long Last, Nothing is a slow rolling and bouncing sliver of atmospheric and downtempo ambience. In other news Bedsides has at least six songs completed for his debut full length album, so get excited for that. Enjoy.
Nick Leng is a familiar name on these pages after his heavenly piece Walking Home, this time around he is lending his production skills to Midnight. Midnight‘s vocals on Adonis work in perfect harmony with the instrumentation creating the future soul sound that I’ve had running through my head for days. Enjoy.
I definitely still have Japanese Wallpaper‘s debut single in frequent rotation after 7 or so months, and now the seventeen year old Melbournian has released a follow up in the form of Waves. Pepa Knight of the Sydney based Jinja Safari gives Japanese Wallpaper a little vocal assistance to the alternative, electronic, ambient production of what feels like one of my favourite songs of the year. Enjoy.
Delicate vocals, a sprinkling of beats and a hit of bass, all laid over a base of acoustic soundcape; that is what you’ll find on Burn Water‘s Shelter. Burn Water continues to impress me each and every release. If the Western Australian resident isn’t on your radar, you should probably go ahead and amend that. Enjoy.
