Young Marco Album Stream Preview

Been looking forward to this Young Marco album release for a while. I could only find a preview of each track for you guys but something is better than nothing. The older I get the more I want summer to sound like this album’s vibe. The record sits somewhere in between this visual I have of an old desktop computer sitting in the Caribbean’s and a clear plexi rain stick being pointed at the sun and looked through.

SUPPORT: DIGITAL / VINYL

ESPRIT + M.E.S.H. + Tallesen + Urulu

This intro and outro by ESPIRIT is becoming what I keep looking for in summer listening, its the tone, everything is tweaked effortlessly, just slowly cruises by your ears.

Didn’t expect this from the PAN label for some reason. Its a bit more “ghetto youth internet music” and less serious experimental.

You ever stare off and daydream about being really good at fighting and your muscles flinch because you felt like it was almost real? me neither. Well Tallesen just made the soundtrack for that experience.

Urulu is becoming one of the most reliable House producers that always dials in the right about energy on top of melody. Here its not too much House chords or lush Tech House, just a great formula post the early 90s inspired material.

When I first scrolled through these photos from Jean de Pomereu I thought they hadn’t loaded yet until I looked closer.

The series ‘Sans Nom’ (Nameless) was taken in the Pridz Bay Region of East Antarctica between 1 am and 4 am, when the air was completely still, and a thin mist descended upon a group of icebergs locked into the winter sea ice. The white landscape blends with its foggy surroundings so that you can almost not tell where the iceberg starts and the sky ends.

Doss + Obin + Mark E + Huerco S

We’re back to 1992 but in the best way possible, Doss did it right and revisited the our first love with light pop electronic and gave it a thoughtful upgrade.

André Obin is releasing a new LP tomorrow, we were lucky enough to debut “Loomer” which glides around like a higher pitch shoegaze track.

Mark E hasn’t been doing many edits these days, he’s in full production mode with his new LP Product Of Industry, touching on easy Akufen vibes.

Huerco S runs Blondes through the lo-fi chipper and completes a hypnotic remix that just grow and grows.
