Cult Cosmos – METAMUSIC by Chris

Cult Cosmos’ latest release is an assortment of sounds and genres ranging from disco to future-beat to straight up IDM-like breaks. It really puts the emphasis on the mix in mixtape. We could also comment on the appropriate titling too- with emphasis on the meta in METAMUSIC but that would just be, woah, so meta.

Highlights include tracks 7 & 8- Nervous and Tension, well titled to fit next each-other, despite one sounding like something you could play alongside one of FlyLo’s earlier works, while the other sounding like it belongs as the backing track for a segment on Soul Train… no… really, try it yourself:

Largely sample-based, some tracks swell through synths while others chop though sounds from all over the place. Peep it if you haven’t already above.

Matatabi (or matatabee if you are a soundcloud person) resides in Tokyo and makes lo-fi beats. Enjoy this chilled release 19:40 available for free download right off the bandcamp page.

It’s been a year since Spazzkid released Desire. The album plays like Bibio soaked in chillwave, and while it’s a little different to what we normally post around here, its always good to treat your ears to some pop-ish music once and awhile.



Titus 12 – Karnak by Chris

So very tempted to make this blog all about the dope shit coming out of Melbourne, there’d be more than enough to post about.

Ex-Bristol turned Melbourne local Titus 12 had his Karnak EP unleashed by Uncomfortable Beats just before our long weekend. Filled with both familiar sounds and what appear to be some quirky field recordings, the production behind Karnak is a tight mix of dub and future beat.



FLOW – Palm Tr33 by Chris

Fuck the Radio Collective picked up Melbourne’s  FLOW around 9 months ago after peeping an amazing live set. His first album has finally hit the Internet for your listening pleasure. If described in one word? I’d use something like ‘trippy’. Melbourne is surely delivering on the electronic beat goodness lately.



Duke Westlake – Re. Turn by Chris

Duke Westlake’s Re. Turn is an impressive 30 tracks large. Ranging from chillout to electronica to straight up hip-hop, this album contains an impressive variety of different sounds and samples, worth hitting play and kicking back to.

Released by the soulful hip-hop centred Mello Music Group (Oddisee, Apollo Brown), the whole thing only costs an easy $7.50 to be yours to keep, or just stream it on Bandcamp above.



Wintercoats – Heartful by Chris

One of my favourite local young Melbourne artists, Wintercoats released the soothing EP Heartful in April as a ‘name your price’ download via Bandcamp.

Wintercoats will be performing at the Yes Please 2nd Birthday Party happening in Melbourne on July 18 at The Worker’s Club with live sets in the band room from artists on the Yes Please artists I’lls, Fishing, Wintercoats, Guerre and The Townhouses. Plus DJ sets in the front bar from Oscar Key Sung, Andras Fox, Simon Winkler, Tim Shiel and Adam Christou.
