Reminiscence, by Handbook
This May we are blessed by a fresh EP of beats from UK Producer Handbook, released by Frances Cascade Records on May 4th 2018. The project features 7 chilled-out beats with a splash of vocal features for flavor.
In typical Handbook fashion, there is a patience to the instrumentals, demonstrating careful consideration for sonic layout. The percussion floats around the realm of boom-bap to chillhop, tracks like Mango swing so smoothly you can’t help but nod your head. Both live and sampled vocals are tastefully dashed into the mix, keeping the listen interesting from beginning to end.
Read more about the release and purchase a copy via Cascade Records bandcamp page, you can also stream the music on your favorite streaming service!

Ever Evolving, by DAILON
Ever Evolving is the latest project from producer DAILON. Released by San Franciscan label DIRTY//CLEAN and consisting of 4 tracks plus a remix courtesy of Groundislava. The EP is a great combination of interesting sounds and rhythms that make you want to nod your head. Each beat (aside from the remix) sits at a very relaxed tempo making it an easy record to play over and over again. Very easy to listen to, but the more you listen the more you can appreciate DAILON’s unique use of instrumentation and structure. You can download the album now via Bandcamp.

Originally hailing from Nashville, TN, Dailon aka Dylan Flach is an inspiring young producer who has been relentlessly productive throughout his budding career. Since relocating to San Francisco 5 years ago, the talented young artist has made a name for himself in the Bay Area by pushing his take on colourful, jet-lagged beat music, finding a crucial balancing point between fluid, emotive bass vibes and jagged, synth-washed club workouts. Ever-Evolving is a tale of drastic change, as captured in his trip to the ocean cliffs of Big Sur, where it all began.
Dailon started his journey from San Francisco down the pacific coast, eventually finding his way to a remote beach 18 miles south of Big Sur. Beneath the hazy glow of the ocean sun, he studied the waves crashing, the peace and serenity of the tides, along with the turmoil of the violent cliff-side surf. Eventually, the beaming sunlight gave way to a heavy metallic downpour, a fleeting ocean rainstorm. ‘Ever-Evolving’ is Dailon’s hi-def, carbon-fiber soundtrack to this continually changing atmosphere. The emotive swings of the EP reflect the shifts and rhythms of city life while offering moments of clarity and calm reflection that come from an escape into the misty pacific. This is “Ever-Evolving”, the slowed tranquility and angular chaos of life.

Meta, by Boliden
With this album, Chemical Tapes introduces a new series of releases, the Solid Hex series, focusing on beat-heavy music and grooves. Still commanding the signature melodic softness I come to expect from Chemical Tapes, this is an exciting development to see them offering a more broad selection of great music. I am very excited to see what is next for this label.
Favorite Track: 3. Seeds
First in the Solid Hex series of more beat focused releases. Boliden’s debut album entitled Meta. 10 tracks exploring hypnotic lo-fi techno aesthetics.
