Tokimonsta - Little Pleasures ft. Gavin Turek

Tokimonsta – Little Pleasures ft. Gavin Turek

Heard this track on Raul Campos’ show on KCRW last night and immediately had to hunt it down. This is probably one of Tokimonsta’s best yet – a totally addictive & melodic downtempo soundscape perfectly complemented by the delicate vocals of Gavin Turek. As HomeWorkOnTheFire points out, the catchy, soulful nature of this track really...

Jayvon Presents: Tron Legacy Remixed EP

Jayvon Presents: Tron Legacy Remixed EP

LA-based producer & DJ Jayvon has created this sweet little mash-up project based on Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy movie score. In this 4 track EP, Jayvon re-imagines Sade, Terence Trent D’Arby, Lil Jon and Daft Punk themselves. The result is some atmospheric soul, the likes of which you haven’t really heard before! Well, I could...
Toro Y Moi - Still Sound [video]

Toro Y Moi – Still Sound [video]

“Still Sound” is the first song taken from Toro Y Moi’s forthcoming album Underneath the Pine, due out Feb 22nd on Carpark. It’s funky and somewhat ethereal at the same time. The feel of this track is definitely earthier and bassier than Causers of This (one of my surprise favorite albums of last year) which was more on...
Myxzlplix - Now Recording EP (downtempo, hip-hop)

Myxzlplix – Now Recording EP (downtempo, hip-hop)

Our colleague, awesome Strictly Social resident DJ, pixel-pusher extraordinaire and all-around good fella, DJ Myxzlplix has just released an EP of his very own productions. Now Recording is true to the eclectic aesthetic he conveys through his DJ mixes. Downtempo, electronica, funk and dancehall all find their way into the collage. My personal favorite is...

Bibio – Mind Bokeh – Album Sampler

Typically I might be wary of any band described as “pop pastoralist” (Pitchfork’s words), but this sampler actually sounds kinda nice. I’ll be looking for this one on emusic in March. Pitchfork says: Mind Bokeh, the new album from the electronic pop pastoralist and Boards of Canada disciple Bibio, arrives March 29 in the U.S. and...
Sonnymoon - Houstatlantavegas (Drake cover)

Sonnymoon – Houstatlantavegas (Drake cover)

Sonnymoon are a quirky duo – part indie-kid, part electro-hop. They released a free album not so long ago, Golden Age which is a mixed bag (according to me) – it’s definitely interesting and different, I just can’t figure out if I like it or not. But, I will say that their cover of Drake’s...
