Kimbra - Settle Down (Feature Cuts Remix)

Kimbra – Settle Down (Feature Cuts Remix)

Maybe y’all already knew this, but this Kimbra chick is apparently kinda hot sh*t at the moment. All of a sudden I keep hearing about her, and just bought her album Vows on Emusic. I had anticipated it being much more indie-kid, but in reality it has a nice quirky soulfulness to it. Adding to...
New Music From Dwele - "What Profit"

New Music From Dwele – “What Profit”

Yay! Dwele’s back with a smooth n’ catchy new single “What Profit”, which precedes a brand new album, his fifth no less which will be released in late summer. Dwele’s last album, “W.ants. W.orld. W.omen. (W.W.W.)” was released in 2010 so it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from the man. The track is...
Mar - Seeing Her Naked

Mar – Seeing Her Naked

This is an awesome slice of underground soul music that would be well worth paying for, but Mar has kindly made it available for free. The singer/songwriter from Amsterdam has crafted an excellent EP that keeps it sexy without crossing over into cheesy. Production comes from FS Green and Full Crate, so you know the...
Jazzy Downtempo from Sinitus Tempo

Jazzy Downtempo from Sinitus Tempo

Lord knows where or how I discovered this gem, but I was digging through my notes of  ‘things to post on ye olde bloge’ and came upon this bookmark. Sinitus Tempo makes jazzy, downtempo beats with a hip-hop flavor. Peaceland is just one of several releases you’ll find on the Bandcamp page, all of a similar...
Julie Dexter - Transitions (produced by Zo!)

Julie Dexter – Transitions (produced by Zo!)

The other day I got an email in my box via the Moovmnt fellas – Julie Dexter – Transitions (produced by Zo!) it said. Awesome, new Julie Dexter, I thought. However, turns out this track was released several years ago and Moovmnt were showcasing it as part of “slept-on sundays.” So clearly I’m guilty of sleeping...
Mr Fogg - A Little Letting Go (Maribou State Remix) - Downtempo Electronic

Mr Fogg – A Little Letting Go (Maribou State Remix) – Downtempo Electronic

This is a really nice remix by Maribou State, of a new song from Mr. Fogg. After checking out more of each artist’s music on SoundCloud, I have to say I think this collaboration highlights the best in both. The official blurb about the forthcoming release: Mr Fogg provides a second taste of what is...
Moody Jazz Hip-Hop Beats From Maehlib

Moody Jazz Hip-Hop Beats From Maehlib

I get a lot of emails through this blog from a lot of artists trying to get attention for their little piece of the internet. I try and listen to what I can. Very generally speaking, most of it is mediocre at best. Few make the cut onto these hallowed digital pages ;) However, it’s...
New Paul Pre Mix For Laid Back Radio

New Paul Pre Mix For Laid Back Radio

German DJ Paul Pre, one of my favorites, has a new mix he did for Laid Back Radio in Belgium, featuring “chilled beat music”. As usual he comes correct with a selection of soulful, futuristic beats featuring AFTA-1, fLako and more (full tracklist below). Paul Pre for LDBK by Laid Back on Mixcloud Tracklist: 01....
