One of the most interesting Dutch producers I have encountered this year is Trian Kayhatu. He is without a doubt one of the funkiest motherfunkers in the low lands.
His brand new “Suture” EP is out on Darker Than Wax and it contains a few missiles. You might remember we premiered “Red Onion White Garlic” a while back, but we had to let ya’ll know what the deal. Really down with the laid back remix that London-based label mate Sh?m did for Trian’s track “Hym”. Frankly, this whole release is four out of four and spot on! Selamat Trian Kayhatu on the release of your EP and turning really really old today.
Dig in those digital pockets, raid your Paypal and spend a few bucks on what we call quality music from the heart.
The yung homie Tek.lun from Baltimore, Maryland made his debut guest appearance on the very first HW&W compilation. Earlier this year his “Ridin’ Round” beat tape was released and it sounds iller than ill. It was made to bump in your whip late night, driving around smoking some of that sticky icky stuff.
It is with pleasure that we welcome the return of Tek.lun in the form of “The GreenBox” EP. On it he calls in a little help from the newest addition to team Huh What And Where, who goes by the name of Gravez. This release consists of four dope tracks for your listening pleasure. And good news! They have all been made available for free download, so start pushing some buttons!
On one of my usual quests for new music, I came across Rawdee‘s fresh “Trecna” song. I was very impressed by the whole vibe and thought I’d share it first thing in the morning.
Rowdy Lewing is from the Dutch city of Enschede and has been making music for some time now. He caught the world’s attention a few years back with his “Hawks Eye View” album and now Rawdee has returned with something fresh and exciting. Can’t wait to hear new music from this talented producer, but in the meanwhile grab yourselves a free download of “Trecna” while supplies last.
Still one of the most mesmerizing producers in the game has to be Galimatias, who has been working alongside Alina Baraz from Cleveland for quite some time now. Given they have a special connection when it comes to music, we are curious about their future ventures.
The following track from the Danish producer is called “Dahlia Petals” and is about a year old. Galimatias never released it officially, since he was afraid he would get in trouble for sampling vocals from Boyz II Men. It’s pure ambient bliss with a garage type of feel to it and you can download it for free right now, right here!
Yung player Frank de Bruin aka Singularis from Gorinchem has been on my radar for a while and when he told he was approached by Soulection to do a white label release, I was very excited for him.
Now I thought it would come out early 2015, but to my surprise it dropped this weekend. And this “Soulection White Label 012” ladies and gentlemen is another fine release, we Dutchies can be proud of. Guess I can let the cat out of the bag now. In 2015 we will be doing a monthly Dutch producer series in which we shine the light on ultra talented, underrated and up-and-coming local producers. Y0ung Singularis is one of the first in this series, so get ready to get to know him and a gang of others a bit better next year.
In the meanwhile get crunk to this free downloadable EP and DJ’s sure to play out “Head Up” in the club.
If you didn’t know any better, one would almost think it’s B. Bravo week here. What a bunch of flavorful tracks have been flowing our way. We love it!
His brand new freebie “Soprano“ has nothing to do with mobsters or gangsters though. This one is for his pops who got Adam into music way back when. I’m proud to say I met pops (and the rest of the fam) back in 2010 and what a nice guy he is. He wanted to show off some martial arts skills and I’m sure he would’ve thrown me to the floor if I would’ve let him.
Not many of you know that B. Bravo also plays a little saxophone, but in combination with the DX7 and those 808′s it sounds so jazzy and laid back. Get ya sexy on to this one fellas and snatch a free download right here.
He has collaborated with J Rawls, Young RJ (Slum Village), Rapper Big Pooh and produces for The Action Figures. Mozaic drops his “I-95” album on the world which dives into his journey of 2014. From heartbreak, to finding new love, to failures and accomplishments. He combined those experiences and created a soundtrack real people relate to.
Lately I have been searching for new talent a little closer to home. Right before the weekend I came across 18 year old Jengi Beats (Jan Berendsen) from the Dutch city of Den Bosch.
He has been crafting beats since high school and went to the Dutch Pop Academy (NLPA) in Utrecht. He is currently building on his own Koninkrijk Van Muziek label, which roughly translates into kingdom of music. Jengi has won several remix contests and thanks to various radio shows, that picked up his music, he is gaining international recognition. Our favorite track is “Carrot Juice“, but also check out his latest music. Some nice freebies available for free download!
We are working on a fresh new project where we put a spotlight on talented Dutch producers. More info on this soon, but rest assured that young Jengi Beats will be a part of this.
Many times I get the urge to hop on a plane to the old US of A. Simply because there is so much talent to be found there and sir JNTHN STEIN is one of those cats.
You may remember our favorite track, “Last Stop“, from L.A.’s Penthouse Penthouse featuring JNTHN STEIN. For his solo track “Laced Up” the Brooklyn-based producer teams up with fellow Brooklynite Brasstracks. Together they create some low down dirty and Jazzy instrumental, that blows (not only horns) but minds. We are looking forward to many more incredible collaborations like this in the future.
For now head over to JNTHN Stein’s Bandcamp page and peep some of his previous work.
Not that long ago I talked to PYRMDPLAZA from Wales. On that particular occasion he told me Soulection had asked him to do a White Label release. What I did not know is that it would drop so damn fast as White Label 011.
PYRMDPLAZA is currently attending the University of Wales and is studying ‘Creative Sound and Music’. He started making music about 6-7 years ago with FLStudio, but now uses Ableton. Some of you might remember some of his previous releases on the French imprint Laruche Records.
As always this white label release is available for free download, so go ahead and grab this one!
