stream: Role, “Blurry”

artworks-000194592193-edg9tg-t500x500

We have been a fan of Role’s mysterious aesthetic. Following their debut album How Distant, the London by way of Barcelona group is back with a new EP titled Blurry. Absorbing elements of Dream pop, Witch House, and Trip Hop, they have polished their ethereal sound. It’s ghostly and thrilling, but at the same time, inviting. Stream the EP below.

stream: Makoto Kino, “Eternal Loss”

tumblr_og061pu6YL1uwfyu5o7_1280

Makoto Kino, although his names sounds like a familiar Japanese name, is not Japanese. It’s a drone-pop project by Mexico city artist Federico Cabrera Celio. His new album “Eternal Loss” is infused with surreal and Dadaist mood and hued with dark, twisted eroticism. It’s a kind of music you sink yourself in, deeper and deeper.

Camera Disposed: Gold Panda

FH000013-951x637

We can all agree that Japan is a special place for Gold Panda. His latest album, Good Luck and Do Your Best was named after a quote a taxi driver in Hiroshima told the British electronic producer and the album tracks are sparkling with vivid and nostalgic sonic images of Japan. Recently Gold Panda toured Japan, visiting Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. I had a rare chance to hand him a disposable camera and asked him to capture his time in the country of rising sun. The pictures are now developed and showcased on our friend Public Rhythm.

It’s a modern R&B track with Thickly layered vocal and saccharine synth lines melting in the groove.

artworks-000187455021-2jumoi-t500x500

LA’s electro producer Tyzo Bloom released his newest single “Ukiyo” and it’s now available to download freely. Tyzo Bloom’s aim was to make people to get lost in the music and detached from the bothers of life; “As a young music producer in LA, it’s really easy to get stressed out and anxious about how to maintain balance in life. (ex bills, work, passion, relationships) This track is a reminder to enjoy the present and to appreciate life.” Download here.

An up-and-coming electronic producer from Mumbai, India, Sandunes released Downstream and now it is available to stream in its entirety. From Hip Hop to UK Garage, she takes influence from various sources, building a soundscape that sounds like no one else. If you are a fan of Ninja Tunes, she maybe the next big thing.
