The more you blog the more you succumb to simple truths. Charting the scene used to be a simple task in the 90′s. A pre-digital era where content-creators were limited to artists who could secure contracts with radio-affiliated labels.
Music is truly astrology at the moment, we’ve got a few clusters of stars that have recently emerged, all the while a few supernovas and galaxys have emerged over the celestial horizon. An ever-expanding limitless arena of music, full of facebook pages, bandcamps, soundcloud pages, and endless emails from pr agencies.
We’ll help you navigate the best we can. Here are a few
stars tracks to aim your telescopes at.

If you notice things shifting around here besides Michelle’s eyes, it’s because we’ve embarked upon a gradual redesign. It won’t be as painful as eating lunch with sworn political enemies. If you happen to know any web design and want to contribute, shoot us an email. In the meanwhile we’ll introduce you to our latest fav. tracks:
Disclosure dropped a new track today featuring Alunageorge; titled White noise’ – it’s got some bouncy high pitch tones with steamy Aluna vocals that you oh so love. Disclosure fans will not be disappointed, this track packs some heat.
Kodak to Graph has got us amazed! His latest track was dropped 2 weeks ago and has us shoe-tapping and head-nodding uncontrollably. With sounds that remind you of pixelord or deft – this track will get you vibing.
GoodbooMs video’s got some wicked subtitles, it’s been a while since any dubstep has been up over here.
Caution: Do not watch if you are epileptic. Caution: If you’re unsure if you’re in the mood for dubstep.
‘Stay’ is a vocal house soulful trip – it’s got that melody you’ve been searching for like Morpheus.

Living in a new digital world, there are vast amounts of continuously produced and uploaded recordings. Day after day, the amount of data we sift through represents a very small fraction of the relatively new content online. The very words you are reading the overwhelming majority of internet users will likely never read. There’s always the chance of some great works falling through the cracks, if only there was a better way.
You’d hear everything you would ever love (skip everything you wouldn’t) never missing anything on the way. Take out would never spoil. You’d never miss an episode of Homeland or going on a road trip because you were just too busy.
Still, there’s beauty in imperfection. Coming across a few songs of the Boom Clap Bachelors that we missed a year and some months ago was a great experience. Kind of like finding a crisp 20 dollar bill in the pair of jeans you lost in your closet.

Jamie’s mixing – we are incredulous. He’s now mixed one of Four Tet’s latest titled “Lion.” The combination couldn’t be any better, two heavyweights skilled in bringing us the beautiful ambient production that we oh so desire. Soothing rhythmic sounds gives the track all the juice that Four Tet intended with an added kick of shoe-tapping thumping housey bass-filled beats.
We’ve also thrown some of Four Tet’s latest in here, a post regarding Four Tet and Jamie xx might as well be combined as they’re inextricably linked, the two (pictured above) are some of the best in the biz… seem to be always mixing each others tracks.

We’ve dug up some some obsessions of ours, ambient tracks that you could possibly have playing while…
well chilling, in space.
The elevator/cafe music of the future. They’ll be playing this stuff on the way to mars (post-terraform), while you’re downing your freeze dried caviar and occasionally glance at your watch wondering why it’s taking so long to get there.

Someone took some time to make this incredible video featuring clips from Jet Li’s “Hero” alongside P.SUS’s “Don’t Leave.” I was truly baffled. Not sure what’s worse here… not having seen Hero or not having heard P.SUS.
P.SUS has a collection of noteworthy tracks and mixes, he’s got a hearty bandcamp libray of over 15 digital Albums, including some great compilations as well. Here are a few of the tracks we found the most spectacular.

Hackman has been changing it up lately, as we’ve heard he’s joined forces and working with a producer named Jabru to form a project called “Bruh Jackman.” Their first single, ‘Of the Sun’ combines a house backbone with some chill samples and very relaxing elements, the beat grows on you as it continues. At first it’s very very chill, but by the end it’s energetic and lively. It’s a transformative song, growing in intensity as it continues.
Another track we are really entranced with is one of Hackman’s releases titled ‘Forgotten Notes’ it’s been around for about half a year now but we couldn’t resist this one.
