I’m getting through the heat with this song featuring Nao, a newcomer based in London, which is the debut release from A.K. Paul, who produced the track, and often collaborates with his brother, the elusive Jai Paul.
Dilated Peoples reunite on this DJ Premier produced track, their first release since 2006. This is the first single off their album set to drop August 12th on Rhymesayers, titled Directors of Photography .
Producer / vocalist Sohn just released this new collaboration with LA artist Banks, featuring Banks’ ethereal rasp over Sohn’s minimalist production of atmospheric sounds and droning drums and layered synths. The creeping beat creates this great tension between the trudging drums and wall of sound combined with Banks’ effortlessly beautiful vocals (check out that falsetto). I highly recommend picking up Sohn’s 12″ featuring his tracks “Bloodflows”/”Warnings” & “Oscillate” here (via 4AD), which is a preview of some killer music to come from the Austrian artist, who is based in Vienna and London. Hit the jump to watch the video for “Bloodflows.”
Everyone and their mother posted this in internetland today, but definitely check it out if you missed it.
I’ve been listening to Disclosure’s debut album “Settle” (via PMR Records) a lot recently, and just discovered this strangely great video for their stellar cut, “When A Fire Starts to Burn.”
