‘Burn City vibes. Buried Alive is over a year old now, ironically buried in the ever-growing miasma of dope shit that you shouldn’t be missing.



The Programmer – REALSHIT by Chris

REALSHIT is an aptly named beat from Cali beatmaker The Programmer. Mellow, yet slightly un-nerving… like the track art.



Matatabi – 19:40 by Chris

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.



SxmGdy – Mndfucks. (Brainwavves) by imogenenebyl

Mndfucks. represents the funk-ish hip-hop influence found in all SxmGdy‘s madly smooth mixes. You can almost visualise the reverberating sound resonate in your pineal gland like the green beam of light shown in the track art. Definitely hit up more of SxmGdy and play it loud.

 



Kushrenada – RSOD/Wet Dreams by imogenenebyl

Kushrenada blends a creepy-circus tune into a chilled out beat throughout RSOD/WET Dreams. If you close your eyes and listen you’ll find yourself in a dreamscape surrounded by Japanese amine girls (Kushrenada does admit to being a yuri enthusiast in his soundcloud description… and if you don’t know what that means, best not google it). The mysterious stranger/producer/dj as he calls himself is based “out of Texas sorta” and keeps himself mostly anonymous.
For something stronger and even more mysterious check out Kushrenda’s t e a r s o f m a n a a n

The Network – When Ur Down [EP] by alex

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.

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.



Willow Beats – Blue (Bee Ampersand remix) by Chris

Bee Ampersand remixes fellow Fuck the Radio Collective members Willow Beats‘ track Blue into a simplistic chilled house track.



Leaks De Landa EP Launch by Chris

At age 19, Thomas Guida aka. Leaks is the youngest member of the Fuck the Radio Collective. His De Landa EP (out on the free digital label Absent Fever) was put out late May, and is holding up to be one of my favourite releases of the year (check out the brilliant I’m Glad You’re Still Here). He’s finally got a release party together with supports from Audego, Surf Dad and fellow brilliant Fuck the Radio artists Alta.

If you are in Melbourne on the 19th, you can head down to Ding Dong lounge, where Guida will be giving away 100 limited physical copies of the EP for free, and also playing for you live. As you can imagine, I have seen him live before and just a hint: it’s a good gig to bring a special guy/girl friend along to for holding hands and looking into each-other’s eyes n shit.

OR just go with your 100% nothing suss platonic mates and chill out to some soothing beats either way.

Leaks – I’m Glad You’re Still Here by Chris

Fuck the Radio Collective homeboy Leaks went quiet for a bit while travelling.

Good to have him back. This track gets my BRILLIANCE tag.



Dylan Hill – The Fall by Chris

Melbourne-based Dylan Hill shows a great deal of heart in his productions, with the same mellowing touch of say, Leaks or even Holy Other.

The Fall blends recorded guitar with some fluttery electronic instrumentation, some soft-to the touch percussive samples and delicate vocals- a style that’s rapidly developing it’s own little place in the greater scheme of electronic music through the likes of Oliver Tank, the aforementioned Leaks and many more.
