Brighton’s Ital Tek comes out kicking on his new EP Hyper Real for Civil Music. The movement through his sound isn’t about making club bangers, the substance that molds it into making Alan’s music special is making space for the atmosphere and melody. Once you master the timing and care that takes then you’ll start producing something as beautiful as this. One last thing I have to say though I couldn’t wake up and have some cereal and turn on my computer and make music at this tempo, i’d probably leave my house spinning and walking on clouds right into the street.
Adam Fuchs and Flying Lotus team for a psychedelic video to promote Moog’s Sub Phatty. Moog claims that this is their “grittiest Moog synth ever”, they definitely found the right man for the job, this “Such a Square” track refreshes FlyLo sound.
More good news from Nosaj Thing’s album comes to the surface, this time it features Toro Y Moi as a guest vocalist. Somehow Nosaj can work in any style vocal and make it mesh soo well with his sound.
No info on Imaginary Records, it only has 15 fans on Soundcloud and even less information online. These melodies are just nostalgic, some premature percussion but everything sits well, perfect 4/4 for around the house.
Mark E went nuts on his Soundcloud an hour ago, uploading everything I know that he has out, helped me find this beauty.
And to end this week right, here’s the Jurassic Park Theme song at 1000% Slower aka a 1 hour version.
Youth Lagoon just announced dates with The National, i’ve been anticipating what his next sound would be like most people, maybe he’d be influenced by the Fat Possum catalog? nope, he comes back to us with sheer beauty.
I missed this gem last year from Bullion, wow… what a gorgeous new direction, he keeps showing us he’s song writing talent, its fusion of sound that could live in almost every decade since the 70′s.
Yalls just posted 6 remixes on his Soundcloud including this fluttery early Caribou like one for Blackbird Blackbird.
Beach Fossils are back and cut out the surf influence completely. The sound has upped the quality and have been striped down just catchy good music without any gimmick, looking forward to the album.
I don’t want to say this was the golden years for this style of music but it kind of was, there was this honesty to it, producers weren’t doing it to share it or to become famous, there was an orb of innocence to it. Note the freedom of not being given some sort of build but instead you get pauses with detailed ambience, soo pleasant.

ISAORA is one of those clothing brands that define the highest level of outerwear for men, its pieces like these that you save up for a keep for years. Shigeto and I did the exclusive track for the video, the footage was directed by Paul Jung. If you get a chance to look deeper in their catalog I recommended everyone to look at their Reflective Coat, I saw it in person and was blown away by the quality and detailing on the inside.
