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.
My last post in the series of Philly related tunes has got to end with this track. Night Pantherhave recently dropped their tightly produced debut LP and it’s beyond solid. Fourth track in and my ears are involved in some sort of electro-pop trance. The amount of times listening to the 6 and a half minute song, “Delta,” is borderline unhealthy, but it feels damn good.
No strings attached, no need of samples…just a noisy dreamy song, which should bring up some American 80ies Teen Movie, like The Breakfast Club, or even Teen Wolf into your mind…talking about the love scenes.
I love the slow, steady build and so much more about this track. The chillwave tones alongside a constant, rhythmic beat is almost lulling to my ears.
The Montreal trio,• Seoul •‘s newest video goes hand in hand with their debut track – gradually leading us along with the main character through a dim city landscape. There’s something so pensive and abstract about what we’re watching, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s remarkably shot as well.

The debut track from the Australia act, MTNS, is dark and haunting underneath their calculated and warping chillwave sound. I cannot stop listening to it. Hit play and check out more of what they’re up to here.
I’m still in the middle of my usual dig when I came across Dents Du Midiin my inbox. 3 tones and I instantly knew I’d be in love.
Chillwave extended synths and a slow-downed sound with ethereal yet restrained female vocals was all it took to win me over. Whoever this is, he mixes quite a bit of future R&B, a bit of wonkiness, and a dash of trip-hop to cement a very solid sound.
I’m incredibly intrigued and foresee losing some time over pouring through the Soundcloud page. Have a listen to the track, “Dim Light,” and be sure to do a little exploring on your own.
I’m more than mesmerized by the bright colors and super lo-fi shots of Chris doing his electronic thing all over his vast amounts of equipment. But what I’m more fascinated with is the actual tones and sounds that the song is comprised of. Catch what the doctor had to say about the process:
The music I make is recorded with real instruments. The sounds aren’t software code or presets. Every sound is PAINSTAKINGLY built in the real world from a waveform first, or if its a simpler toy keyboard or sample, it is circuit bent and/or run through multiple effects peddles.
With the same amount of detail and precision he must have to use each and everyday in the medical field, Skeleton Lipstick lays it down and absolutely blows my ears away with all of the textures he meticulously creates. Enjoy the video above, re-listen to his debut album here, and be sure to check in again soon – his sophomore release is almost wrapped up.
Today I’m en route to a quick little personal adventure. I’m taking a flight out to the San Francisco Bay Area to do a bit of exploring while I’ve got a brief period of time off. I love traveling.
One album I’m excited to immerse myself in during my cross-country journey is Small Black’s latest album, Limits of Desire. I loved their shimmering, electronic pop sound back when I first heard their single, “Search Party.” Their new album has a cleaner sound, giving the vocals more of a presence. I’m really digging their sophomore EP release , from start to finish.
