Nebraska + Beef Terminal + Stuck

I try to catch every Nebraska track that comes out, some of the most visual disco that crosses over to indie rock and deep house easily. I find his approach always seems to come from a genuine knowledge of his sounds history, looking forward to more.

Beef Terminal is a Canadian guitarist that caught my ear via bandcamp, this song grabbed my ear because it was a bit looser than some of the Mark McGuire tracks and the reverb definitely has more space to roam around.

Not sure who the artist is on this but the new age whistling along with a jungle break is such a great combo.

ISO50 Spotlight: Leon Vynehall

Listening through Leon Vynehall’s catalog and mixes I find myself always coming to the point that he understands the organic groove of house music. The second track “This Is The Place” on the Royal Oak release is a perfect example of what separates him from the pack, from chord choices to resonance to stepping into new sequences, the man gets it naturally without relying on trends or replicating what he hears. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Old News: Vaporwave came and went

People have talked about Vaporwave for years as a genre we even posted the music on the blog for years, no one really cared to call it that besides the deepest end of the bandcamp and tumblr culture and its looked down upon to even say it at this point. So instead of talking about it here on ISO50 i’ll just dig up a few classic free albums for you guys and post them up here. The genre is too fun not to share, its mostly just slowed down soft pop from the 80s and 90s that is pitched down, I imagine it was paraded around by Japanese teens and maybe some 15 year olds in California.

What started it all:

Mark E might be our generations most consistent edit wizard. Always soo smooth and always thinking about the dancefloor, he did stunning things to make this Brett single
flutter.
