I don’t usually recommend mixes but it’s a Sunday and this one is too good. Casey Borchert, hailing from Minneapolis in the U.S of A has presented us with a gorgeous Arctic Dub mix on Neonlogic World Radio. It’s an absorbing ambient/techno-dub affair. Excellent for thinking, studying and sleeping. Put it on and get to it.

Check out Borchert’s SoundCloud and the Arctic Dub Website.

deedontcare is a phantom. I don’t know where he lives or what his name is, but I do know that he’s one fucking dope beatmaker. The above song (how it is a “rough copy” I will never understand) should be enough proof. Check out his SoundCloud here. Go from the top. It’s all quality.

No doubt, Zürich-based Delakeyz makes one of a kind music; strangely reflective, nostalgic and groovy.The vibes are strong here – you can’t shake these house beats.

Get his Organic & Smooth EP for free on Bandcamp right here, it’s pretty important.

If you’re looking to chill out, get amongst Giriu Dvasios’ latest release, Namo, on Cold Tear Records. At fifteen tracks long, it’s both quality and quantity. Dub-techno doesn’t get much better than this.

Get amongst his music (and many other talented artists) here.

After listening to Eggglub’s Freaky Feeling (above) I knew that I wanted more. Fortunately, Chilean-based No Problema Tapes have answered my problem by bundling it with seven other tracks on the ΔKTR / Eggglub Split Mixtape. It’s mad.

Listen/buy it right here. It’s only three bucks. Chump change, right?

I’ve played  PrezSport’s Urban $treet Americana to a few of my friends. They all think it’s awesome. I do too.

High praise, right? I don’t take this shit lightly. Do yourself a favour and download it over at the PrezSport Bandcamp.

 



Sorrow – Hieroglyphics EP

Sorrow’s Hieroglyphics EP, from the UK-based dub label Fent Plates Records, can be easily summed up in this Bandcamp user review:

“One of the best EPs I’ve ever bought. Burial definitely played a big part in influencing a couple of songs, but it’s forgiven since they’re so good in their own right.”

Each of the five tracks are pure quality – but the gold medal goes to ‘Chronicle’. Can’t shake those grooves.

Check it out (along with other releases) on the Fent Plates Bandcamp.

On my latest label-digging frenzy I found Deep Heads – a UK-based dub label. Their latest release, the two-track debut EP from Audialist, is something you should indulge in immediately.

Stream the album (or buy it) here. For more releases, check out Deep Heads on Bandcamp.

Treat yourself to some trap, courtesy of De’Kcuf – the second duo I’ve written about recently (here’s the first).

These two 21 year old producers come straight out of Sydney, Australia and opened for Sinjin Hawke for his recent gig at Chinese Laundry.

Check more of their trap sounds here.

The Network – When Ur Down [EP]

The Network
, pseudonym of beat-maker Jesse Rintoul, recently dropped his first EP – after listening not once, not twice, but thrice, my verdict is in: it’s beautiful.

Presented as a 15-minute continuous mix, When Ur Down seamlessly blends between tracks, enveloping them in dark ambience and the familiar vinyl distortion you’d hear in a Burial releaseMore than anything, the sense of atmosphere Rintoul evokes is so tangible and real that you won’t have any trouble wandering off into the deep, dark recesses of your consciousness.

If you’re anything like me, it’ll keep resonating even after you’ve stopped listening – that said, given the nature of this release, the saying “you get out what you put in” couldn’t be more applicable. Take your time with it.

Speaking of… if you haven’t already started listening, do yourself a favour; sit down in the comfiest seat you can find, plug in your headphones, close your eyes and put it on.  This EP works in all the right ways – it’s visceral, emotional and a true reflection on the day and age in which we live.

In other words, soak up The Network’s When Ur Down; it’s something you won’t forget any time soon.
