It’s been awhile since I’ve popped my head into the beat scene. And it’s always nice to see Manchester-based producer, Mecca:83, still dishing out the tracks.
His latest collaboration with SoCal beat maker, Question, is as smooth as it comes. Perfect fluttering keys and a massively fluid beat. Doesn’t hit much better than this.
For being just over 3 minutes long, Oliver Tank’s newest collaboration with fellow Aussie, Ta-Ku, feels like a slow, searing burn.
I love the minimal lyricism in track, “Different Speed,” which coincides well with the methodical layering of synths and tones. It also puts a large focus on the feel Tank is looking to create. I also can’t say enough about the production quality, those swelling strings that pick up in the end of the mix just fill everything out so well.
Stream below, and just hope hard that this isn’t just a one time thing.

There’s a lot going on with new project FLWRS + Maralisa’s sound.
Exotic female vocals, searing low ends, and downtempo synths – my attention was quickly drawn after first listen. Grab my favorite track off of their debut EP, Muddy Your Feet, below.
Be sure to check out the rest of the EP here.

Finally, Vindata is back, and their sound is a limitless as ever.
Off of their upcoming EP, Paradigm, the duo have just dropped new single, “Being,” which is an absolute sultry jam. I like this dip into future r&b, it sounds like a natural direction for the gentleman and comes out effortlessly.
Along with some new, check out some of their previous tracks below.

There’s something just simply so fabulous about the French and their electronica.
College, who you’ll recognize from the art house drama, Drive, has recently dropped his latest album, Heritage, and it’s quite the gem. With his style of slight variations throughout each track and his keen texturing abilities, composer David Grellier creates beautiful synth-heavy soundscapes for our ears.
Catch the two track sampler below and while the vinyl is sold out, you can always grab a digital copy of the rest via iTunes.
This is my second-cup-of-coffee-jam. It’s smooth, downtempo, yet fluid with elegantly restrained bit of tension. I love everything about it.
Build and build with this one.

Flamesworth is back at it with some more of that mix fire he’s oh so loved for (at least by us). Here is his new, beautiful 45+ minute mix he did for FADER. This thing is great, so cohesive, deep, emotional. He was even nice enough to include the track list. Check it all out below

Check out this new squishy fuzzy sounding, glitch-hop kind of 8bit boom bap rap track from the big homie Jonwayne. “Royalty” is a track that didn’t make the cut for the Wayniac’s new album that should be dropping some time this Summer.
Royalty – Jonwayne
Also, check out his recent appearance on The Passion of The Weiss’s podcast, “Shots Fired,” where he, Milo, Jeff Weiss, and MC Nocando nerd out about independent rap.
André Uhl’s latest EP release, Creatures, is purely late night sounds. You may remember him from past feature on the blog when he did a fantastic remix of adoptahighway’s track, “Rhythm For a Basement Apartment.”
The Berlin-based DJ/Producer is back this time with 4 mind-bending ambient yet beat-laden tracks. The beats range the spectrum, even dark and grimey at times like in track, “Native,” which conjures up images of lowly lit underground subway tunnels or walking in the city after a hard rain fall that has finally let up.
Take a listen below and grab the free download on your way out.
If you’re based in the 215 then you certainly understand the underground street art culture that’s deeply rooted within this city. And if you’re a fan, you definitely have heard of Get Up.
A Philly native, Get Up’s work can be seen inside the Electric Factory, along Columbus Blvd., under the El, on hoodies and stickers, or even inside office spaces. This guy is hard at work leaving his stamp all over this city while many of us are asleep at night.
While you’re getting familiar with his wide range of art, tap into his sounds, all wonderful and diverse and better yet; surely to get you moving just in time for the weekend.
