VECT Between Two Palms
14.11.14

Last week we introduced you to Émile Sacré who is also known as VECT. Besides being a great producer, this multi-talented genius from Toulouse is an incredibly skilled art director who illustrates and animates the most amazing videos.

Yesterday I put two and two together and realized the artwork/logo for Claude’s recent release was VECT’s handy work. His modus operandi is to create the music first. Then he creates the whole visual identity with mostly illustrations. Being producer and artistic director at the same time, allows VECT to create a coherent universe in which sound and visuals perfectly flow into one.

The track “Between Two Palms” is the first song of VECT’s forthcoming EP on the French Cosmonostro label. It is a dynamic production punctuated by percussion influenced by Trap music, a melodic Soul loop and an R&B-like repetitive voice. See this as the perfect way to ease into the journey that is called “Kent Bimaga“. Pre-orders are available now and on November 17th the EP sees it’s official release.

Sarah White Create Found MYK Remix
12.11.14

Good morning everyone, or evening depending on which part of the globe you reside. We’d like you to take a listen to Sarah White from Minneapolis. This young lady very recently collaborated with hometown producer M¥K to give you this brand new and steamy version of here previously released song “Create Found“.

The vibe kind of reminds me of J’Davey, but perhaps this sound a bit more raw and nasty. One thing is for sure miss Sarah White knows exactly how we like it! After having heard this song you will most likely want to get your groove on thanks to these dirty deep synthesized vibrations.

Off The Beaten Tracks Grown Kids Radio
11.11.14

When we first heard about Grown Kids Radio‘s “Off The Beaten Tracks” initiative, we got excited about contemporary artists being able to once again leave behind a piece of their legacy on vinyl.

The project will manifest itself in the form of a limited edition vinyl EP packed with seven future classic cuts. It features an eclectic roster of musicians and an amazing custom record sleeve by visual artist Aaron De La Cruz.
Off The Beaten Tracks contains previously unreleased music from Hawthorne Headhunters, Starship Connection, Ohmega Watts, The Pendletons, Miles Bonny and B. Lewis. It is with great pleasure that we exclusively premiere the club banger “In The Trunk” from the Bayside boys B. Bravo and Teeko.

With your support, Grown Kids Radio hopes to breathe some fresh new life into the vinyl tradition. Please support this project, check out the all artists and show some love for this great enterprise.

Tek.lun The GreenBox EP
11.11.14

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!

Panes Still Sivey Remix
09.11.14

Panes is a name that’s new to us, but perhaps you are familiar with the duo. Tyson McVey is a vocalist from London who now studies at UCL. Shaun Savage is a recording engineer whose credits include artists such as Factory Floor and 2.54.

Earlier this year they released their debut EP on Norwegian label Smalltown Supersound’s new subsidiary Brown Rice. Now, to accompany Autumn/Winter support slots with kindred spirits Kelela and East India Youth, they are releasing “Stills” with handpicked remixes by their favorite producers; Visionist, Sivey and Eyedress. Since we are huge fans or Sivey‘s music, we had to share his Funk-influenced remix with you all.

Pusic Records 005
09.11.14

The Austrian-based label Pusic Records released two EP’s last year and a double EP. Right before Christmas they return with a four track release by various artists.

Pusic Records 005 starts off with a rugged yet soulful House track from Box aus Holz family member IMYRMIND. The track “Keep On Slingin” is ample proof that this dope producer does not only produce fire with Glenn Astro, but is a beast on the solo tip too. Other producers on this EP include Saine from Helsinki, the Dutch duo Fouk (Daniel Leseman & Junktion) and a producer from Italy called Giovanni Damico who did an amazing job on “Break“.

Make sure to ask Santa for the 12″ vinyl. It’ll be out December 14th which is just in time for him to order a few copies.

Dorian Concept Wrong Rhythm Studies
07.11.14

Clearly inspired by video games, Austrian producer Dorian Concept, unveils an almost forgotten bonus track entitled “Wrong Rhythm Studies“.

We first encountered Dorian Concept when he was rockin’ the Microkorg and later when he dropped “Silverlake” with Kissey Asplund. In 2009 he released his groundbreaking “When Planets Explode” album via the Dutch Kindred Spirits imprint. Almost five years later he finally released his follow-up album.

This bonus track was taken from the Japanese version of his “Joined Ends” album. Which, as you might know, was released last month via Ninja Tune and well worth picking up at your local record store or any other digital candy store if you’re into that.

thestand4rd album
05.11.14

When we first heard about thestand4rd‘s track called “Decisions“, we were really feeling this foursome.

Their unique sounds come together nicely and the thestand4rd, consisting of Allan Kingdom, Psymun, Bobby Raps and Spooky Black, seems like a perfect outcome of an exceptional chain of events. Earlier today they released their self-titled debut album. It was recorded at Doc McKinney’s (The Weeknd’s producer) studio in Toronto. Their weird mix between electronic Hip Hop and R&B is as unique as each member’s identity.

Lucky for us the album is a freebie, so go ahead and download it for free. Shouts to Michael Cina for the artwork and please do share, like and repost if you enjoy the music!

Rawdee Tracna
05.11.14

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.

Black Milk If There's A Hell Below
04.11.14

From Billie Black, we now take you to a whole other type of black. For Detroit’s Black Milk is back with a new album entitled “If There’s A Hell Below“.

In an era where most people only care about streams, tracks and not so much about albums or purchasing music anymore, Black Milk comes with (you guessed it) a Hip Hop album. What can I say? The dude is still killing it on the production and with features from Pete Rock, Blu, Random Axe and Bun B this is a solid album. Love the “Detroit’s New Dance Show” track and “Story And Her” sounds tremendous too. Love how he still manages to tell his unique story through the making of this album. Yes folks, albums are stories, memories and point of views. More albums in 2015 please…we need them!
