Caught this track playing at a festival in Amsterdam on Kingsday and it blew my mind. Murphy Cooper brings the dark Techno vibes with pumping bass and shaking drums.
Better late than never: got much love for this track from Leven Kali. Such a funky sound with a wonderfully upbeat vibe, what’s not to love! The more I listen to this guy, the more I’m tipping him for big things in the near future.
This beautifully shot music video for CRi’s “Rush” uses the town of Fremont, Quebec as a backdrop, illustrating its ghostlike industrial winterland. The video is almost documentary like in its introduction of Fremont but goes on to showcase the true beauty of the Quebec countryside as Cri’s sweeping futuristic bass music plays.
Anna Meredith is a London-based composer that creates music ranging from maximalist contemporary pieces to pleasantly quantit electro-pop folk music like with “Dowager”. In a lot of ways, the song reminds me of my longtime pop/folk favorites Tunng. The music video is wonderfully crafted by Director and Animator Ewan Jones Morris.
Danish producer Niles Cooper struts out this hypnotic piano melody over thumping drums and claps. The result is a classic Deep House sound that is so simply wonderful and yet difficult to achieve.
Parisian electronic music should be it’s own music genre at this point. Jimmy Whoo is the latest Paris-based producer to illuminate the masses with a touch of French lounge, replete with the 80s synth and sexy saxophone.
Cassius teams up with Cat Power and Mr Happy himself, Pharell Williams, for a dizzying upbeat pop track. They’ve enlisted the amazing people over at DIVISION to make the visuals, with Director Alex Courtes taking charge. The result is endless vertical and horizontel split screens with double meanings and commentary galore.
Soulection’s Dutchmen, Singularis, illustrates that his countryman Jarreau Vandal isn’t the only Sound of Tomorrow crew member with movies. The track he created for the launch compilation of Switzerland-based collective Culture Vibes Movement is smooth but bouncy. Some jazzy Kaytra-shit. Indeed.
