CUBBY. Cold (Feat. Kwane and Current)

First single from new producer Cubby. The opening mix of beats, hums and words feels like those introspective moments we’ve all spent int he car peering out from behind the passenger seat window. For me, this takes me back to living in Berkeley and the fog-choked mornings spent driving over the Bay Bridge to get to San Francisco. 

I don’t know anything about the elusive New York trio of CUBBY., Kwane, and Current, but I will. Stay tuned.

J.Wiltshire Warning

Discovered this artist on Believe in Sound’s Best Songs of 2012 list. I fall more in lust with each listen, as the subtle intricacies of ‘Warning’ weave themselves throughout my slightly frazzled brain and settle in, making themselves right at home. 

Hear more from budding producer, J.Wiltshire on his Soundcloud.

(p.s. Pitched-down vocals were so overdone this year, but this for some reason doesn’t bug me)

This week has made me want to throw my life against a wall. Listening to  has made me feel a lot better. Soulection finishing out 2012 like they in it to win it.

Solar Year Night & Day

Beautiful and wistful electronic pop anthems are just the tip of the iceberg for Montreal duo Solar Year. Listen to their new single, “Night & Day” above, and expect a full-length debut in 2013.

Solar Year is the first signee to one of our favorite blogs’ No Fear Of Pop, and the head of Oslo-based imprint Splendour Records new label, Stratosfear Recordings. 

Pále Mysts

Another favorite new producer, Pále captures that haunting isolationism and layers in icy fragility, while breathing the ever slightest feeling of human warmth into the project. Like glimmers of light peaking through cracks in the darkness. Kind of reminds me of Mark McGuire’s ‘Brain Storm (for Erin)’. Fantastic.

Def take the time to explore other electronic fascinations on Pále’s Soundcloud.

Becoming Real LUNARMODULE Mix for Oki-Ni

I already fucked up my vegan pumpkin pie for tomorrow, and all my friends from high school are married. This mix made me feel so much better. 

Becoming Real’s mix includes tracks by Scuba, Studio 1, Magnet, Terranova, Oni Ayhun, Ladiback Luke + A-Trak, Rui Da Silva, Paul Woodford, The Field, Junior Boys, Julio Bashmore, Anti G, Jaco, DJ Killer and Boards of Canada, plus a few choice Becoming Real edits.

Oscar Key Sung WIMLTM 

The bits and pieces of 2012 not spent obsessing over the future bass/uk bass lite scene has been pre-occupied with the Aboriginal beats and tender melodies of Oscar + Martin. One half of the project, Oscar Key Sung just dropped this heartfelt, pitch shifting love letter in song form. It’s sexy and cool, filled with sparse, looping harmonies and glitchy, chopped up vocals giving the notion that special someone he once knew so well has once again become a stranger. Where has my love gone? Obsessed.

Luvian Valley Girl

You’re so vain, I bet you think this song is about you…it is right?

Martin Eden Worker

I want to say it’s lovely background music, but it’s so much more than that. I’m a longtime fan of Eluvium. Minimal ambient cool.

Pre-order the 7” single from Lefse HERE.

:PAPERCUTZ Where Beasts Die (Bam Spacey Remix)

Reminds me of a futuristic take on Little Dragon’s sound. Solid.
