Alphabets Heaven & Deft • Pride & Joy

Newest single off of Alphabets Heaven’s Everything Stays The Same. Collaborating with Deft, Pride & Joy shows a more darker side of Alphabet Heaven’s sound and aesthetic. Along with Cloud Key, these releases give away something different than his more upbeat tracks, such as Bamboo or his mountainsound EP. Watch the music video below.

SALES

Their sound is reminiscent of a summer breeze, held together with lo-fi aesthetics and a drum machine. With the pleasantries of it’s vocalist, SALES brings you back to a more innocence time before growing into adulthood. To top it off, XXYYXX’s remix of toto adds a darker side to their music along with tonka time. Grab their EP here.

Lorn takes us on an industrial adventure with The Maze To Nowhere. Hindering on a game-like atmosphere, which he has soundtracked before, Lorn uses his dark aesthetics to create a masterpiece of lo-fi tones and ominous sounds. Grab it for free here.

Melo-Zed

Beatmaker of the neo-soul persuasion is Melo-Zed. His nostalgic repetoire creates a happy balance between jazz, r&b and hip hop. Turn Heads fuses jazz with Euroz’ Summer’s Over while About [Her] brings together a chilled out beat and pitched vocals, showing his prowess in different genres. And with Stakes, a collaboration with Obongjayar, hip hop has never sounded so good.

GEOTHEORY • Futuristic Love

Describing themselves as “raw emotion in audio form” comes GEOTHEORY, a craftsman of chopped up synths and warm r&b tendencies. Off of SYZYGY, this masterpiece is an amazing debut from the newcomer. Download it here.

Dunham • Bored

Comedically filled with bird chirps and tongue clicks is Dunham’s Bored. Uniquely strange, Bored creates a hilariously catchy blend of purrs and chirps that’ll make you think, why haven’t more people sampled animals as prominent melodic leads?

Birdy - Skinny Love (Sebastian Carter remix)

Three years ago Birdy introduced herself by dropping the world’s jaw with her cover of Bon Iver’s Skinny Love. Since then, not many have risked remixing the beautiful cover. At only 19, Switzerland’s Sebestian Carter has managed to create an absolutely incredible remix of the already perfect song. He chops up the vocals, while keeping her impeccable sound intact. He adds in down-tempo synths which work to perfectly complement her voice.

Margaret Backwoods x The Kount - Chaufa

image

It’s not often you hear a song that perfectly combines brass instruments and eclectic synths, but Margaret Backwoods and The Kount have created something truly unique. It’s incredibly refreshing to hear a powerful orchestral sample mixed with hip-hop beats as it’s not something you hear a lot of anymore. The song begins and finishes strong with beautiful harmonies sprinkled through out. I’m really hoping for more collaboration between these two featuring brass and jazz samples.
