Beacon + Medlar + Karmelloz + Max D

Beacon is back with this remix for Tomas Barfod touching on Little Dragon meets Ellen Allien / Apparat with the bubbly rhythm and all the transitioning parts flow soo easily into each other.

Medlar gets tapped to rework a Arthur Beatrice cut, the piece has such diversity and musicianship compared to most remixes these days. What really grabs me is the amount of quality downtime in the breakdown and the full opening of the song in the last 2 minutes that fuses together soo many genres without ever feeling like he lost control.

1080p delivering another internet uncovered gem, this is getting ridiculous because the vaporwave umbrella can only hold soo many soundcloud musicians, this is spewing into the New Age world but giving us one of the most interesting takes on utopia, i’m completely drenched in happiness that this sound is happening.

Having trouble finding any of the House Of Doors material as MP3′s, i’m just picking up the vinyl on Discogs. The only full track I could find is this Max D remix that touches on that Dutch Techno sound and very much inspired by some 90s Hardcastle jams.

Fort Romeau + Kiasmos + Yagya + Huerco

Sorry for the silence, I had the Heathered Pearls live show to prepare and I also played my teenage dream show which was Movement Festival in Detroit, anyways back on the horse!

A pretty perfect pairing which I hope turns into a remix swap, Jacques Greene just posted his remix of Fort Romeau, always ethereal and always a dancefloor hit.

Kiasmos has elements of Booka Shade if I remember correctly, slightly more indie and the piano keys feel like a sample but I could be wrong, either way worth checking out until the end.

Yagya just posted a 20 minute preview of his album, I have to say it might be his best yet, for him this seems like he’s pushing his own boundaries slowly but still noticeably and fans of the old material won’t be disappointed.

Another breathtaking internet fusing caribbean piece, these sort of sounds are very visual maybe because I sit on tumblr for 2 hours a day but I have to give it to Huerco S. for making this CFCF rework a special one.

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.

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.

Lately i’ve been making Heathered Pearls material and just been trying to stay away from any influences but I keep diving into this ambient vocal dub. A lot of the material I go back to is always pretty lo-fi and almost New Age, seems like comfortable route to follow and explore. Here’s 4 tracks I found yesterday that grabbed my ear to help you get a better sense, some even have free downloads!
