Little Eyes (zacheser Remix)
We first stumbled upon rising D.C. based producer zacheser back in April when his debut original record “Skippy” sailed smoothly onto our radar. The young artist’s latest sees him tackling the remix game with a beautiful, melodic revision of Vincent Coleman‘s “Little Eyes”. Utilizing a foundation of housey roots, disco influences and unsyncopated ensemble rhythms, zacheser paints an addictive soundscape that pulls its listener into a tranquil flow state of aural consumption; while staying true to Vincent Coleman’s balmy original.
About zacheser’s remix, Coleman remarks: “DC producer zacheser is such a talented individual & I’ve been a fan of his for a while now. I reached out to him to do a remix and he surpassed my expectations, creating this new vibe to “Little Eyes” that still plucks at your heart strings but also gets your feet moving through an easy going atmosphere of grooving synths and consistent percussion.” I don’t think we could have said it any more eloquently. Enjoy zacheser’s “Little Eyes” remix above, and be on the lookout for more from the busy artiste in the near future.
Tiger Tooth -the East Village, NYC based electronic trio comprised of Johnny Siera, Will Broussard and Sofia Szamosi- came to us like the sweetest of gifts when they asked for our hand in premiering bouncy analog-techno instrumental single “Clementine”. Immediately, a muted synth that sounds like it was pulled straight off of an old 909 is underpinned by a buoyant kick-clap, setting the stage for the rest of “Clementine” to blossom into what sounds like a mid-2000’s electro romper lingered around a techno warehouse just long enough to embrace the weird while manging to escape with all of its accessibly cool points. This one fills us with the kind of gritty electronic joy that powered the blog-house era with so much fun, yet tasteful dance sounds. “Clementine” is one of the lead singles from Tiger Tooth’s self-titled LP on the fledgling imprint Baby Tooth Records, and with the amount of detailed craftsmanship found on just their first LP, it’s safe to say we will be waiting patiently as Tiger Tooth’s catalog continues to evolve and expand.
In the midst of chaos, music can be the perfect escape. Come get lost with us for a while….

If you haven’t heard of KOLAJ yet, you definitely will after “Into You”. This is one of those singles that can define an artist’s trajectory into big things, and their signature blend of tropical house and K-Pop brings together the best of both of those worlds. In their premiere with Fader, they exclaim,
We first got inspired by the tone of Eric’s voice, it’s breathy but cool in the verse so we wanted to playfully complement each other in a way that felt like we were incomplete without each other. We only got together for one day and basically turned out the entire song. We were big believers in the song even if it was outside of all of our comfort zones we still wanted to share with the world. K-Pop and Tropical could sound sweet together… perhaps we invented “K-Trop.”
Good luck getting this one out of your head because you’ll be hearing it all summer. Hit play and enjoy!
Emerging electronic group The Erised have released their enormous new track ‘Liar’. Consisting of grunge guitar chords, and heavy drum beats, they’ve compiled every component available to create this innovative style. This track follows their impressive debut EP release ‘Desire’, and the band are now set to offload their colossal debut album ‘Room 414′.
An ambiguous drone of light synths set the initial tone, as lead singer Sonya Sukhorukova’s vocals delicately meet the music, setting a pace to the electronic track; leaving a vast amount of space and laying the foundations for explosive electronic synths driving the chorus. The Erised are a Ukrainian 5 piece band, consisting of an eclectic mix of musicians, from drum and bass producers to singer/ songwriter Sonya. They explore genres such as jazz, rock and pop to diversify their sound, and enrich their unique style as a group.
Elements of grunge rock are powerfully incorporated throughout ‘Liar’, and especially within the bridge; counteracting the pure vocals and capturing a fine balance between tragic and euphoric. The verses offer a fluid and calmer aspect to the piece, which, along with these emotion stricken vocals carry the song to each chorus.
Keep your ears to the ground for up and coming tour dates; in the mean time listen to ‘Liar’ above.
