I had been sleeping on this lush release from youngteam, released a month ago, Headspace sounds like the result of throwing bunch of great sounding synths, vocal snippets, percussive sounds and guitar into some sort of big musical cyclotron (if only it was that easy). Also it’s in 432hz tuning- (read this if you want to know more about that).

 

Head over to youngteam‘s soundcloud for more.

Su Na has gone and done a remix of Mincha‘s Lovin’. The track has already enjoyed some popularity thanks to SeventhhWonder‘s remix from earlier this month.



Dr. Bones & Marigold – Treehouse by Chris

I didn’t realise, but I had my speakers turned up really, really far when I hit play on the intro track of Treehouse so my first reaction was HOLY CRAP THAT BASS IS LOUD! But even with my stupidity getting in the way, it made for an enriching listen.

For a bit of background, Dr. Bones is a future beat producer out of NYC (I’m sure regular readers will enjoy his two free EPs to be found here and here) while Marigold is a Boston-based vocalist. The pair have created a layered electronic-folky type sound full of them delicious organic samples. My heart was pounding a mile a minute after being startled by the initial volume I had my speakers set to (again, my fault- not theirs), but luckily the album is beautifully relaxing.



Colourwaves – World Warp by Chris

Colourwaves has released some new work and it’s brought us out of hiding. World Warp contains a poignant commentary on consumer culture and human’s creative spirituality.

 



Amin Payne & Ben Bada Boom – UTURN MEON by Chris

There’s somewhat of a global effort behind this collaboration between local Melbourne hero Amin Payne, Germany-based Ben Bada Boom and French label Cascade Records. A well-deserved sexy video for a sexy song; pushing the limits of what the YouTube monkeys will allow.

Amin and Ben have a talent for making beats which stand on their own as ‘songs’ rather than simplistic instrumentals- really bringing the craft to a new level of creativity and musicianship.

I’ve suddenly found myself jumping head-first back into that jazzy brand of trip-hop which I love so much; Hubert Daviz dropped this smooth remix of Grand Puba‘s A Little of This around a year ago and I’m digging it.



Chet Faker – Melt feat. Kilo Kish by Chris

This is going to be all over the blogosphere but how could I resist. Local superstar Chet Faker (who skyrocketed to stardom with his amazing cover of Blackstreet’s No Diggity) teaming up with the totally dope Kilo Kish (check out K+ if you missed the boat on her).

I caught a bit of Chet Faker‘s set at Splendour in the Grass (major Aussie music festival) and his fan-base ranged from drunk teens to groovy middle-aged couples. A testament to the brilliant accessibility of his music.
