If your ears haven’t heard the genius that is Sydney’s Flume, then let me quickly do you a solid. Your weekend moods have got to involve this talented producer, trust me.
The man behind it all, Harley Streten, experienced an incredible 2012 with his debut album jumping quickly to multiple Australian charts. And just recently, he re-introduced that incredible album as a deluxe version that features the original album, the mixtape, and remixes of and by Flume himself.
Also be sure to check out the future synth-pop sound of his newest original track with The Preatures frontwoman, Isabella Manfredi, below.
BONUS: Oh, and just for good measure – a Disclosure remix.
Comprised of samples of old school synths from the 80′s and 90′s, New York City’s Low Tee does a meticulous job at layering to create a tightly crafted sound. Over-sensualized, wonky at times, and just the right amount of synths – I’m excited to hear what this producer puts out next.
From an artist who describes his music as, “I make the wrong kind of beats… Don’t tell the homies,” you’re definitely going to fall in love with the saxophone all over again in his track, “Thuggin…Feels Good.” Make sure to check the rest out over on his Soundcloud page.
I saw this video a couple weeks ago and I’m just getting around to posting it. My bad. The visuals are trippy as hell and the beat is out of this world. If someone can tell me what song was sampled I will give them an agreed upon number of high fives. If you live far, we’re splitting the cost of gas or the deal is off. Anyway, enjoy the trippy video, amazing beat, and Danny Brown’s energetic flow.
The name of this track is “ODB” and it will be on Danny Brown’s forthcoming album Old which is available for pre-order here.
I just really, really love this New Zealander’s sound. This is the first track coming off of Biza’s upcoming album, Winter Solace, due out within a month or so. Until then, this free track satisfies completely.
Introspective themes, stream of consciousness line to line, and a downtempo beat seem to always creep up on me at the best of times.
Distant Star(of the Expansions Collective tribe) has just released his latest album, Arrive, which dives deep into the underground rapper’s daily life. Third track, “Renaissance,” spits lines most rappers wouldn’t. He keeps it real about his adult life, working the 9-5 especially in lines like, ”it ain’t just booster seats in this black truck.” Other tracks let your mind escape, such as the gritty “Real” where the beat gets growly and low while DS’ flow impressively never takes a break.
Alongside with killer, dark production – I love the way DistantStarr weaves his story in and out of each track. The themes are strong, and sometimes hard to swallow. Arrive is a must listen, from start to finish. Stream below and grab the free download while it lasts.
