Desert Song

After a pilgrimage to the desert for that three day adventure that so many people are talking about, local Denver DJ/Producer Jontron is already back at the keyboard drawing up some tunes based on his inspirations from Coachella.

Utilizing samples from the Temptations, Pink Floyd and Peter Gabriel, Jontron has taken a departure from his club-centric house style to provide his fans with a groovy, poolside pleaser that calls on associations of fellow Coloradan glitch hop producers.

So, pour yourself a nice, tall drink and throw on your boardshorts. It’s summertime, as far as Jontron is concerned.

[Glorious] Duologue – Memex EP

artworks-000070562708-6otrjk-original

After a long, music-filled weekend at Coachella, and a much needed wind-down session in San Diego, I’m finally back at the helm, writing about some very deserving tunes. Right out of the gate, we have one of the better pieces of music we’ve heard in the past few months, coming out of London by way of Duologue.

This UK based five piece have pulled together a stunningly crafted sophomore release, providing listeners with a chance to get completely engrossed in swells of electronically produced beats, glorious vocals and surging, cinematic energy with their EP, Memex.

While we sincerely struggle to find a favorite among this stellar line up, we can’t help but find ourselves helplessly lost, careening down a path rife with subtle guitar riffs, moving lyrics and lush, emotion rich soundscapes of “Traps”. Calling on associations both indie rock and ambient electronica, this song seamlessly flirts with associations of the likes of Two Door Cinema Club and The 1975, while also giving nods to Bonobo and Tycho at the same time.

As bizarre of a combination of influences as that may be, these cats have nailed it ever-so-effortlessly, leaving this blogger grinning ear-to-ear.

Inky Jack – Freedom [TMN PREMIERE]

Inky Jack
Freedom

As we prep ourselves for the craziness that is Coachella, we’re lost in a sea of interview questions, meeting coordination, and planning out both our poolside and after hours jams. Thankfully we have a new track to throw into the mix that seamlessly blends into either of those carefully selected playlists.

Culminating in a swirling blend of rock, reggae, electronica and punk influences, Brooklyn based Inky Jack has concocted a peculiar and overwhelmingly addictive sound with their song, “Freedom.” Blurring the lines between genres effortlessly, this tune carries a strong message through its lyrics. Coming via lead singer Kwame, these words are displayed through a truly one-of-a-kind vocal tone that is both refined and a little rough around the edges. He’s able to hit high notes in a soulful manner, calling on associations of CeeLo and Tunde Adebimpe from TV On the Radio.

Dipesh Sinha and Kwame Bulter (aka Inky Jack) have set quite the trajectory early on in their career. Their sound casts a wide net by the immense amount of genres it so fluently flirts with.

Make sure to keep an eye out for their EP, Infrared, which will be out later this year. Beyond that, don’t be surprised when you see this name on some major festivals next year. That time is drawing near for this stellar duo.
