Don’t get French producer I:Cube confused with Ice Cube and write him off, this guy is the real deal when it comes to stunning space disco that pays attention to the details with the proper patience, a great headphone listen.
I’ve been loving Pogo’s edits especially Alice and White Magic that are just oozing out on the nostalgia tip. The tracks are very simple almost like he created them with Garage Band but he makes it work. Watch the video below, I love his use of the older wise fish for a split second.
Warp’s new signing Gonjasufi has a real chance of hitting a wider spectrum of fans than even Flying Lotus[who I hear did the beats], his vocal style for some reason is really appealing to my ears, it feels thought thru and refreshing.
Blue Daisy is a artist I first heard on Percussion Lab radio when Praveen dropped it, it has hints of that more airy minimalistic dub sound, the low end swerves in and out once in a while at the perfect tempo, listening to it now I just wish the song was 10+ minutes long.
Simon Scott of Slowdive and Televise keeps the beauty from the guitar coming with his new album on the Miasmah record label. Miasmah’s discogs says “we want to make music for scenes and places” and this song Introduction of Cambridge does just that, what a wonderful way to start an album or even your evening.
I don’t know much about Pogo, I have this feeling that someone cut up and slowed down Passion Pit, Empire of the Sun, The Avalanches and a Disney movie to make it, pretty enjoyable idea for a song.
An original Detroit DJ now Brooklyn friend Lauren Flax is making bigger moves into production. Her single You’ve Changed that came out in June just dropped some remixes, I still like the original the most but this remix definitely caught my ear.
I know this is like the 3rd Neon Indian song i’ve posted in the last month but the album just went on sale today and i’ve loved it but I never had this song, probably because he sampled Pineapples, how are you gonna sample Pineapple’s without pissing off every Italo Disco fan ever, I hope this guy knows what he just did, good luck legal department:
Pineapples – Come On Closer
Simon Scott – Introduction of Cambridge
Pogo – Alice
Lauren Flax – You’ve Changed (feat. Sia) [Kill the Rocket’s Slam Dance Remix]
