What more can a person ask for than a new release from Nick Wisdom? His free downloadable “Remixes, Originals & Rarities” is a great way to start your weekend and get your groove on.
Six bangin’ edits / remixes is just what the doctor ordered and yes ‘Nicky Smalls is the illest’ (producer coming out of Canada). His Potatohead People project with AstroLogical was such a great release back in March. In case you haven’t heard it, go take a listen to their Big Luxury album and while you’re at it snatch a free download of Nick Wisdoms’ Remixes, Originals & Rarities EP.
Happy weekend, enjoy the music and be nice to your ears!
Been a bit busy lately, but had to squeeze in some time to let you all know about a project by Jamin & Fid Mella from Vienna.
Fid is no stranger to us, but it seems he has been lurking in the background for a while. Thanks to Suff Diddawg for making me aware of this. I had never heard of Jamin before, but the two dropped their “Augenring” album a few weeks back.
Jonah Christian is a producer, composer, arranger and musician from Los Angeles, California that some of you might know about already.
He happens to also be one of the co-founders of a band name Joomanji, who’s music was featured on BamaLoveSoul’s compilation album “On Deck” 2. On this lazy Sunday afternoon, Jonah returns with a brand new track titled “Walk On” featuring the enchanting Joanna Borromeo and Austin Antoine.
We are giving away this lovely song as a free download on Soundcloud and in return we would like to ask you to show some love by following Jonah Christian on Soundcloud, hitting that Repost button or leave a nice comment.
Oskaar is an electronic soul producer/singer living in Berlin, who recently released his new single “Never Met You“. In his own words Oskaar says: “the song is about pure resignation – feeling so hurt and devastated by a break up that all the negativity outweighs all the good things the two of you’ve shared in the past, and you truly feel that you wish you’ve never met this person. And feeling this, in turn, makes you feel even more sad.”
The song was turned into an elegant, mesmeric video through a collaborative effort featuring photographer/creative director Daniel Bolliger and performance artist/model FavelaPunk. The result is a stark, arrestingly minimal meditation on the bondage of shattered affection – call it a simple vessel embodying the knotted complexity of the human love condition. In other words you need to watch this video.
To top it all off Mouthwatering Records called in the help of Soulection’s starRo to deliver an amazing remix and the moment we heard it we were excited to premiere it exclusively via Soundcloud. And great news! It’s available for free download for a limited time, so make sure you spread the news and grab this freebie.
James Chatburn is an Australian soul singer, songwriter and producer who’s music we have played on our radio show before. He brings that Aussie soul mixed with electronic feels and can easily be added to the list of artists that have a similar sound to Electric Wire Hustle.
For his latest single “Creator“, Chatburn teams up with Jordan Rakei who co-produced the song with him. Written last year, this particular track was geared to be part of an EP. However it was decided that James Chatburn would release a series of singles instead, starting with “Holiday Love” (another collaboration with Jordan), followed by “We Drink” featuring Frank Nitt and produced with Dizz1.
James recently made the move from Sydney to Berlin to work on his craft, so we advise you to see if you can catch him play somewhere. His nu soul flavor is exactly the type of music we love to write about, so please enjoy this exclusive site premiere. Make sure you ‘name your price‘ and pay what you seem fit for this sultry summer track on Bandcamp.
Last month Roel ‘GOSTO‘ Vermeer visited the Red Bull Studios Amsterdam with his band to take part in our monthly Werk Space project. Enjoy this early demo version of the track “Time For Me” which will most likely be on GOSTO’s next album.
Shout out to the band consisting of Mats Voshol (drums), Bram Wassink (bass) and Luc Schouten (guitar). You know we are more than about beats only, so it’s a refreshing treat to hear such soulful electronic pop music. This one is already Joao’s all-time favorite! Having musicians in the studio is always a great experience and to see how these guys all work together is great. Thank you all for this wonderful piece of music and we can’t wait for GOSTO’s new album to come out.
Growing Pains is a compilation album presented to you by Ralph Hardy from the NANG collective out of London.
This is a nice way to highlight a lot of new talent in the UK. Those trying to survive and fighting to bring you their story. With artists such as Etta Bond, Emmavie, Melo-Zed, Barthoven and Thea Gajic we are sure you will enjoy this one. NANG has been making some noise for a couple of summers now and we dig the sound that they are putting out.
This one is titled “Growing Pains” because of their recently terminated Soundcloud account. Thankfully they are building again and we are following them from a distance. Grab a free download or pay whatever you feel is right on their Bandcamp page.
DTW has been building a strong and steady foundation with artists like NeguimBeats, Jasper Staal, Silo, Beats O Freen, Melo-Zed, fzpz, Kerem Akdag and 10.4 ROG on their roster. All these producers handed in a lil sumthin’ to celebrate the fact DTW has now over 30K followers on Soundcloud.

Frisco Funkster Teeko recently created the track “Love Like This” together with Sonya Distel and fellow Mugpush member Devaun Bantu. Devaun is a student at Ex’pression College, which has several campuses throughout the Bay Area. It’s primarily an audio/recording college and this year they launched their new audio/video series ‘Artist In Residence’.
This particular song came from a live Mugpush jam session recording. The improvised vocal track passed to Teeko as he expressed that he had an idea for it. He then imported the vocals to his turntable, where he started to chop up all the vocal parts he liked from various sections of the jam. He then placed them and soon the song began to arrange itself. They later brought in the lush vocals of Sonya Distel to complement the sound and provide beautiful female representation.
The last step was to bring the track to Ex’pression College to utilize their facility and come together with the students to share the experience enjoyed by all. Watch the video below to get an idea of what went down.
Teeko is sharing Love Like This as a free download (and many other songs) at the newly launched Explore.fm. Appearing as the first free music ecosystem for verified artists. The music platform launched today and promises a pure online music experience, where everyone can listen to and download music for free.
In return listeners can show love and donate either to their favorite artist directly or subscribe. In the latter case you can choose how many artists your donation should be divided with.
