Introducing: Wih’lo

So far this year has been dominated by teenage producers; from xxyyxx to Beat Culture pausing at REID along the way, the ideas being brought to the table by these adolescent musicians are thoroughly exciting and setting the benchmark for their contemporaries. Instead of idolizing super rich, PR backed ‘DJs’, the youth can look to […]

New & Video: Fthrsn – On Our WAY

New material from Fthrsn AND a new video. Wowza, and to think I thought this day wasn’t going to get any better than me sitting in my bed, half naked, eating chicken wings. What a fool I was. But yeah, check the vid; kid sure can dance.

New: M.I.A. – Come Walk With Me

So the new tune from camp M.I.A dropped earlier today and sent the Internet into a tizz. Less of a tizz than I expected, but regardless, more than I few people got excited. Now I hate to piss on a perfectly harmless parade, but the new track, Come walk with me, hardly fills me with […]

New: REID – Miami

Another graduate of CitR’s Sound of 2012 list, Irish producer REID has well and truly cemented his name as one of the most exciting young artists around at the moment. With half a dozen original tracks and remixes to his name, it’s not hard to fathom just why we predicted that this year would be […]

New: PHOSPHOR – Influx

I imagine that in the yearbooks of Nathalie Bruno, Jake Ambridge and Helene De Thoury, they were listed under ‘most likely to do an XX’. PHOSPHOR conjure up the same sort of trance inducing atmosphere that Jamie XX & co found fame with, morphing menacing synths into something of great beauty. New track Influx feels […]

New: Flatsound – I’m So Concerned About The Ending That I Don’t Even Know The Plot

Flatsound knows how to cut right to the core. Whether he’s waxing lyrical about sexual fetishes or as in this case, the emotional attachment to his mother, Mitch Welling has the rare gift of portraying a magnificent connection between the music and real life. With a new album soon, he’s released a short teaser containing […]

Video: Unicorn Kid – Pure Space

This little baby has been sitting on a tab in my browser all day waiting to get blogged. I don’t want to deny him that. The new video from Unicorn Kid, on the surface is achingly cool. The phrase ‘too cool for school’ might as well have been written for this video. But do you […]

Video: xxyyxx – About you

16-year-old mega sensation XXYYXX seems to be on our pages more and more, we even had a board meeting the other day considering a sister site that just covers him. That’s a lie, we don’t have a board, we are considering it though. His new video has everything I want from life; hot girls, hot […]

New: Church Spires – Islandic

Photo by Jackson Bowley The sun is setting, I have a pizza on in the oven and I’m getting ready to meet an old friend this evening. I was pretty stoked on today as it was, and then Blackbird Blackbird decided to go and make it all even more delicious by dropping the first track off […]

New: Swim Deep – Beach Justice

With Swim Deep‘s debut, (I think), single out in a matter of weeks, the band have dropped the single’s b-side. I’m going to go out on a limb and say, I actually like it more than the King City. It’s a remarkably more somber affair, sprinkles of organ elevate the track, with the line “you’ll […]
