Oh would you look at that face! How could you deny such blissful pleasure – sure pure joy, a joy you will obviously find after indulging in this lovely little beat tape by NANCY. Brought to us by Liebermann & Schwartz, a mysterious new imprint – 𝕭𝖗𝖔𝖔𝖐𝖑𝖞𝖓 𝕲𝖆𝖗𝖉𝖊𝖓𝖘 is a delicious little 7 track tape, packed with smooth samples and dusty chops. It’s pretty much been on rotation for me this past week. Premium piano riffs float effortlessly above boom bap percussion – doing justice to the proclaimed brooklyn theme, evoking feelings of rainy streets and kebab meats….

Hey gang! I am back in action and feeling better than ever! I have been discovering so much wonderful music lately I simply cannot hold back from telling the world!
One thing in particular that has sparked a lot of energy has been exploring the CHOON platform – its vibe has taken me back to the old SoundCloud days, and I have simply adored lurking around the website for quality music. So to help usher back in this sonic exploration, head over to my Choon page (currently operating under my OHSAURUS moniker) and give a listen to Mellow Choons Vol.1 !
I will be posting more frequently – sounds from the underground as always – from the depths of bandcamp, soundcloud, and anywhere else I can find aural experiments! As always feel free to send your submissions my way – twitter tends to be the quickest way to reach me, however the good ‘ol submission form always works too! Anyways please enjoy, see you on the other side….
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!

Favorite Track: A Pure Connection
DaP Station Records and Zypher Unlabel have teamed up yet again for a bonkers compilation of spaced-out beats! Continuing the tradition begun years ago of creating genre-defying collections of music, this compilation acts as a reunion of sorts, bringing those producers still active back together for another sonic feast!
Of course there is a shameless plug for my own track in there, but the rest of the album is equally amazing with some truly gnarly beats and treats. Did I mention there is a cassette version which sounds great? Give it a listen…
Brought to us by London’s Drift Deeper Recordings, AMFH is a 2-track project by producer Liquid Delay.

You can download the project now via the labels Bandcamp page and get both tracks for about a dollar!
Tehnofonika Records Brings us a marvelous summer sampler of Dub-Techno tunes, perfect for relaxing while the sun sets on a hot day.

Each song fits perfectly with the relaxed, sunny-mellow vibe, steeped in atmospheric flavor and texture. The album is currently only available for download via the Labels Bandcamp page.
Depth of Sadness is a new EP by Downtempo-Techno artist Jeremy Davies, better known as SLOWNOISE. This 4 track project was just released by Cold Tear Records of Lithuania, whom always seem to release quality tunes. This brief yet brilliant project is equally satisfying as it is relaxing, like a nice meal and a good beer. Well rounded synths and electronics balance perfectly with relaxed and subdued rhythms, with each track holding an energy of its own. Currently the EP is only available for download via Cold Tear Records Bandcamp page.
