THUMP is calling this one “foreboding and paranoiac” ,and it is. Psychemagik’s remix was released ahead of Portuguese Xinobi’s ‘1975’ album (out now on Discotexas). And if you didn’t take heed to THUMP’s word, then take these: Deep and dirty, ripe for Halloween.
Prior to this KGreen has had a bountiful supply of wobbles in his repertoire, Deep n’ Bassy House always bordering on Grime. Lacking only in vocals. Enter Merky Ace, bridging the gap by by hooded appearance and killer flow. The pair done right.
The two most active producers on the socials and in the studio have joined prolific forces. By means of the interwebs Vancouver Islands Whipped Cream has paired with LA’s Trap god, Slow Graffiti. Representing both parties audibly ‘Deprivation’ is eery, with drum rolls, calls, plus every other Trap element one could ask for. Free download for the deprivated masses!
One guy at THUMP called out France as the new to watch country to being propelling massive amounts of amazing electronic artists into the know. But it’s damn hard to commit to the East when new artists are STILL surfacing. One has to commit a dedicated peripheral to the big island country. For instance Sydney based indie-electronic duo AViVAA released this, their third single to date ahead of their debut EP due later this month. The Aussies are still churning.
The classiest of the classy would eat this shit up. I can picture people singing around a piano to Birthday Boy’s music . Beat and funk fusion comes off as so clean. Beyonce has that prestige about her now too which helps no doubt. Buy some brandy or something.
Time after time it’s surprising how often the Benjamin Button looking pop star get’s amazing makeovers.. musically. She may never look younger than Halley Berry or Will Smith do today, but hey. The intro to Autograf’s “FUTURE TROPICAL. ISSUE 1″ is, ensnaring, to say the least. After that, it’s pure Tropics.
Even if this track was total bullocks (which it’s absolutely not) a post would be merited. Taking on Alanis Morissette is a ballsy move. But when you add a touch of Ace of Base and strip it of Alanis Morissette and her accent, it’s actually an amazing House number. Ups to Lucian out of NY.
Boom! Disco dust? Nada. Disco chills? Full effect. Brookly’s The Golden Pony have made a special one. Never mind how the original is, there’s no need to look back. No offence intended but this perm shaker holds it’s own.

Move over whomever is your “best” future or Alt R&B or whatever it’s called these days artist. Paces continues to hit it with his own signature Tropical Trap ishhhh. ‘On My Mind’ features a bangin’ vocal display by YOUTH, adding yet another layer of fresh onto an already impressive approximately 10,000 swagz.
Rethinking away from Lykke Li’s indie toward bedroom Trap calls for good linen. High thread count type linen. The kind of linen you can’t part from for just another day not soothed by it’s lush caress under gravity’s pull.
You + bed + this remix = bliss.

It’s true, Electronic music has reached the realm of tabloid journalism. Tis a dark time, but, as with everything there has been and will be two sides will always be present. The positive, and the negative. Good music will always speak for itself and stand out amongst the muck and pod scum. Anna of the North was one such outstanding light for the now immensely popular Chainsmokers. What they interpreted their remix into was a future, and dare I say more “underground” version, than other major hits of theirs, #KAYNE, #Selfie..
*Amidst the success of millions of plays and appearances The Chainsmokers have remained loyal to their love of Indie vocalists, which, is an important point to note on their career to date. Cudos yo.
