Love this eerie subdued sound right now. These two from Helsinki are making waves fast…seeing how they formed only a couple of months ago. Phantom made their first public appearance at SXSW this year and obviously caught peoples attention. Word is that the xx is into it, so naturally everyone else should. dig it. dug it, good.
One of the most intriguing and progressive DJ/producer from London. Aaron Jerome really knows how to add variety to his tracks because his style tends to mix elements of dubstep (no-not the super obnoxious kind), 2-step, elaborate beats and wonderful guest vocalists. Each song is vividly different. “Hold On” featuring Sampha has a steady beat mixed with a somber xylophone throughout the song. Been stuck in my head for days, can’t even begin to say how excited I am to see this guy at Coachella in the next two weeks.
You’re definitely going to want this turn this one up high… “Jasmine” is saturated with rich bass and smooth guitar. Jai Paul has done it again- made an absolute perfect track. I was obsessed with his last single BTSTU…this British singer/producer knows how make a song sound so sexy and sensual. “Jasmine” dropped Friday evening via XL- perfect driving through the city of LA. So into it right now.
Yup it doesn’t surprise that Chromatics Kill For Love got best new album on Pitchfork because it is incredible. It’s the kind of song that leaves your skin tingling because you want more. It’s filled with this dark and slow palpating sound and then the scratching synth emerges as if it’s grabbing you and pulling you. Just in awe. “Lady” is the third single taken off Chromatics’ highly anticipated Kill For Love.
