Coolwater Set & RAC
The Coast ft. Jvzel
Coolwater Set is a project made up of Far East Movement and the Scandinavian artist, Autolaser. As if that doesn’t already sound sweet, they bring in house legend RAC to collaborate on their latest single, “The Coast.” Right now they only have two songs out and we haven’t seen new music from Coolwater Set since last year’s single “Up To No Good” so I honestly didn’t see this one coming. On “The Coast” theses artists blend their own unique styles into a sick electronic/hip-hop groove. Jvzel keeps the cool with R&B backing vocals as the rhythms and bass build together. The resulting tune possesses a diverse sound, one that almost everyone can appreciate. After tuning in, you’ll be happy to hear that a full Coolwater Set EP is on the way.
If you like electro house, then you need to know Loopers. There’s no way around it. Despite the fact that he is an up and coming producer, his talents outshine where his fanbase is at. If you’re not a fan already, after hearing his new single “Roll Up” you will be.
“Roll Up” comes to us through WOLV Records, which has been supporting Loopers for around a year now. Not only does Loopers put out insane records, but he continues to hone is skills and his sound as time moves forward. Summer time is all about raging, festivals and getting your party on; which is just the atmosphere that his tracks thrive in. Take “Roll Up,” with its unwavering fervor. Even when the the song’s full force isn’t engaged, it’s still dance-able. One thing that always sticks out to us with Loopers is his sound design, and he really took it next level with “Roll Up.” This Summer has had plenty of party tracks, but this is THE one. Stream it today, or head to a digital store to get a copy.
2ToneDisco x Dreamcasts
As team of music bloggers, we strive to find acts that stand out. Sometimes those acts join forces to deliver a song that stands out even among each artist’s discography. Today, we’re lucky to premiere “Glimmer” which is the result of such previous actions. Who created it? That would be 2ToneDisco and Dreamcasts.
Together these video game loving producers melded their sounds together to create the future-tinged single “Glimmer.” The really cool thing about this melodic masterwork is that it shares a style similar to class games, while bringing it into contemporary times and infusing it with acoustic elements. “Glimmer” is one of those good vibes tracks that will cheer you up in an instant, and never let you get rid of the grin through the piece’s three minute lifespan. Although the song comes in at just over the three minute mark, chances are high that you will be playing it again, and again. Much like we have prior to this premiere. Although, that’s not entirely true, as we’re still jamming to it. One last thing, 2ToneDisco and Dreamcasts dished this one out as a free download, so don’t sleep on it!
Seaside (Turtle Rework)
Earlier this month, a fusion of dream-folk and calming electronica came together via a budding young artist named Haux. His debut EP, All We’ve Known, is a 6-track collection of delightfully transient, wandering, and simply encapsulating work, highlighted by positively stunning vocals. One of our favorite stand-outs, “Seaside,” recently got a proper remix treatment from the oft-mysterious Turtle.
Turtle’s Rework features a wonderfully long build up that slowly layers in elements, creating a gorgeously-crafted ambient soundscape. From fluttering synths, to deep bass hits, to the eventual incorporation of subdued percussion, each accentuates Haux’s glowing vocals with a gradual, textural, and enveloping manner. All that’s left to do is close your eyes, lie back, and get lost for a few blissful minutes.
Currently, you can pick up All We’ve Known through Akira Records on Spotify or iTunes.
Well hello there. Fancy meeting you here. Why don’t you take a seat, kick up your feet & stay awhile. We’ve got an indie dojo all queued up just for you.

Romania’s Boehm is one of those producers that has released great song after great song. It seems that the streak won’t ever stop. He recently came out with a new song called “Future Self,” and we’re here to tell you it continues his streak.
“Future Self” is a pop-tinged house record that features the vocalist Melody Noel who, with one song, has jumped on our radar in a big way. Her performance in this song is beautiful; prepare to get some frisson while her voice soothes your ears. Good thing is, there’s more great components to this song that come from Boehm. He doesn’t let the vocal be the only thing that shines in this song as his instrumental is a home run. Highly melodic, “Future Self” is something you’ll be humming in your head until the end of the Summer for sure, and maybe until the end of the year. It’s one of those special records.
It’s been a few months now that we have been seeing the name “bitbird” circulating through out our feeds. With all the great music the name was releasing, it came as no surprise when we discovered the person behind the new label was none other than electronic artist, San Holo.
To kick off the creation and amassed success of bitbird, Holo has released the label’s first ever EP, Gouldian Finch, a compilation containing an array of the label’s newly signed music ranging from hip-hop to bass to acoustic. Initially, San Holo teased us with his own first release with his creative company, “Still Looking,” which only set an exciting example of what else we could expect to see from bitbird. In addition to his single, listeners will get a taste of the diverse and talented sounds distributed by the label on the ‘Gouldian Finch’ EP. Indulge your ears’ taste buds and take a listen to the brand new EP below.
