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.

VECT, who goes by the name of Emile Sacré in every day life, is a producer & art director from the French city of Toulouse.

His music production style is various with a hint of Future Beats blending genres from R&B to Footwork. VECT’s art projects are perhaps even more incredible, but please find out about them yourselves. In the past he collaborated with talented people such as Fulgeance, Alex Barck, DJ Cam and Deafkid on his ‘Altitudes’ album.

Get ready for Emile’s forthcoming “Kent Bimaga” EP (pre-orders available) releasing on Cosmonostro November 17th…it’s smokin’ hot. So we are quite happy to premiere the video teaser which looks astounding! We could hardly believe one man was responsible for all this. Make sure you look out for an audible treat next week from the multi-talented VECT.

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!

Billie Black 000100 EP
03.11.14

Ever since we laid our ears on miss Billie Black from the city of London, we knew she would make it big. After she claimed she doesn’t ‘Need Another Lover‘ she now returns with a whole lot of zeros and ones.

Her songwriting skills are nothing short from amazing.  Combine that with the wonderful minimalistic productions by Modyn and we have a sure win ladies and gentlemen! Billie Black’s “000100″ EP is out as of today and is available digitally through iTunes. I could have sworn I saw a link to limited edition vinyl. Unfortunately I can’t find the link anymore so we will just have to wait till it resurfaces.

Galimatias Dahlia Petals
03.11.14

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!

Singularis Soulection White Label 012
02.11.14

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.

B. Bravo Soprano
02.11.14

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.
