They are about to present a nine track compilation album of electronic ingenuity entitled “Youtellme” Vol. 1. Included artists have already been supported by the likes of BBC Radio 1, XLR8R, Thump, Earmilk, Diplo and of course Moovmnt.

Night Marks Electric Trio is a Poland- based trio on whom we have been keeping a close look. Jazz music graduates Marek Pędziwiatr (keys & vocals) and Adam Kabaciński (bass & keys) teamed up with Spisek Jednego (productional chops) in order to create their unique sound. A mix of Hip Hop, Jazz and Electronic music is what flows from their minds and into our ears.
The debut self-titled Night Marks Electric Trio EP is a work of love and features vocalists like AB, Raashan Ahmad, Archeo and comes with a fat remix from IAMNOBODI. Straight bangin’ my head to “High Ground“, which in my opinion is a no brainer neck breaker. The song “Breakfast” reminds me of a seventies Jazz Fusion flute player getting lost in a modern day world. Becoming overwhelmed by all sorts of new rhythms and mysterious sounds, but eventually finding her way back again.
Today marks the digital release on U Know Me Records, with vinyl copies to follow in September. The Night Marks Electric Trio EP also features incredible hand-painted artwork from Radek Drutis, an artist known for his work for Stones Throw and Eglo Records.
YUMO is a New Zealand-Born Samoan-Australian producer slash DJ, slash composer, slash engineer. He currently represents Brisbane, Australia though.
His “Immigrant Sound” EP is coming out this Sunday and is on that housy trap jazz vibe. If that makes any sense at all, but I think you know what I mean. There is a sexy little track on there called “Liquid” featuring Jordan Rakei, who will be releasing his very own EP quite soon via Soul Has No Tempo by the way.
We are very glad to exclusively premiere “Roger Dat“. A quite deep track that’s super soulful all the same. Enjoy the stream below, follow YUMO on Soundcloud and pre-order The Immigrant Sound now!
Photay aka Evan Shornstein is a producer hailing from Woodstock, NY. His artist name is a nickname he picked up while studying music in West Africa. The local African kids would point at him and his American friends and started yelling “PHOTAY, PHOTAY, PHOTAY!”. At first he had no clue what the word meant, but he later found out that it means white person in the native dialect of Guinea.
During his six month stay in Guinea, Evan not only picked up his artist name. He also learned how to play Djembe (hand drum) and Balafon (marimba-esq instrument). Now there’s two singles online, “Reconstruct” featuring Seafloor and “No Sass” (available for free download). These will give you a good impression of the music Evan makes, but make sure you visit his Soundcloud page for more music. His upcoming self-titled album will be out August 26th on Astro Nautico.

UK producer duo The Code from the UK have been coming up through the ranks. They draw inspiration from Fleetwood Mac to James Blake and everything in between. When it comes to the creations of The Code, there are no restrictions. The future of R&B kinda looks like this I guess.
Their deep infectious track called “9.46” is uplifting and makes you want to get down low and dirty. Another track “Natural” taken from their debut EP “1/11“, was premiered on i-D a few days ago. The elusive pair will release their debut mid August so stay tuned!
Something we at Moovmnt headquarters have been waiting for for a while is Jordan Rakei‘s new “Groove Curse” EP.
The first single featuring Gwen Bunn is entitled “Street Light” and gives you an impression on how wonderful this project is going to sound. We were fortunate to get a full listen and let me tell you this is some next level S O U L music. Other tracks such as “A Tribe Called Government” and “Add The Bassline” are so good that I just had to take a deep breath and sigh. Thank you Jordan for being one of the few to keep Soul music fresh and organic. And yes I will go as far as to call you the future of Soul. Goodbye D’Angelo, hello Jordan Rakei. All we need now is Jordan to strip naked and do a video for the ladies.
Pre-order the vinyl 12-inch on the Soul Has No Tempo Bandcamp page. Incredible first release on this new label out of Brisbane.
Pomo recently did a nice remix for London’s Snakehips, but what few people know is that he’s 1/2 of the duo Nouvel Âge. Me and the homey B. Bravo were going nuts over their “Let Me Know” which has quite the subtle homoerotic feel to it (perverted minds I guess). Anyway Pomo is releasing an EP via L.A.’s label HW&W soon, so get ready to be amazed by his clean ass electronic funk sound. I really love hearing this kind of music in clubs, so DJ’s ya’ll better recognized. Download his new track right here!
Young buck Sam Gellaitry grew up in the capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh and now resides in Stirling. Earlier this week he remixed tlm_‘s track “Cherish“, which was pretty under the radar if you ask me. Bang up job though on adding some electronic flavor to this slick R&B jam.
Seems unimagineable how a seventeen year old kid, who started making music at age twelve, is blowing up so fast. Welcome to a new era. Sam is signed to Soulection and will release a white label EP probably later this year. With additional support from HW&W, Sam Gellaitry is destined to go places.
Paul Chin is a multidisciplinary artist and designer based out of Toronto. By day he works as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer, but by night he is a producer and DJ.
Paul brings to life dreams of fairytales with his subtle yet harmonic electronic music. His “The Forest” EP explores the story of the individual and the world surrounding him. Inspired by the writings of Donald Miller, Chin also enlists Johanna Wienhølts as a companion storyteller in his latest electronic fable, composing his most thoughtful piece to date.
Paul Chin’s Cosmonostro release came out last month and is something you should take a listen to.
