[Electronic] Hypa Karate – Out Like This

Hypa Karate
Out Like This

“Out Like This” is the debut single from the act Hypa Karate. Not much is known about this act; the only things we’re given are a dated school photo that looks like it came straight out of the 80’s, he’s from Brighton and was born in the early 2000’s. There is one other thing we do know… that “Out Like This” is a straight jam.

Hypa Karate is already distinguishing himself despite his young age, with a formidable frenzy of sounds taken from synthwave, UK garage and beyond. The result, so far, is “Out Like This” which is going to be a song we come back to time and time again in the dojo. Even though it just came out, it has that timeless nature to it. No matter when it was released, it would be a hit. It’s one of those type of songs. Get hyped, get your dancing shoes on and get ready for Hypa Karate.

Lincoln Jesser feat. Gabrielle Current – Somebody Will

There’s just something about midtempo tracks that is so appealing. There are a ton of them out there and plenty of good ones too, such as “Somebody Will” by Lincoln Jesser and Gabrielle Current. Released through Congo Records last Friday, this pop-driven single is just what you need to lose the Monday blues.

“Somebody Will” is a dazzling, acoustically blended record whose cool sound will infiltrate through your ears and go straight for the heart. It’s soft, gentle and majestic. Gabrielle’s soft-hearted voice shines brightly despite her keeping things quite intimate with her style. It fits the instrumental that Lincoln created perfectly, making these two quite the match. “Somebody Will” is currently out, so digital stores can be browsed if you’d like to get a copy for yourself.

[Electronic] Droeloe & San Holo feat. Cut_ – Lines Of The Broken

DROELOE x San Holo
Lines of the Broken (ft. CUT_)

During the work week, it can get pretty difficult for us music diggers to squeeze in the time to hunt for new tunes to share with everyone. For this reason, we never cease to take advantage of the weekend. This week we were met by an incredibly heavy stream of fresh note-worthy tracks.

One that we especially couldn’t wait to share is Droeloe and San Holo’s latest collaboration featuring Cut_, “Lines Of The Broken.” Greeting listeners with a combination of chiming and buzzing synths, Dutch duo Droeloe and bitbird head honcho San Holo blend their signature sounds together for an outcome that is shear musical bliss.The final product is stitched together with the help of singer Cut_’s delicate and dreamy vocals, which add just the right amount of softness to the single.

Through contrasting sounds and textures, “Lines Of The Broken” will have electronic music lovers’ ears glued from start to finish.

[Indie/Electronic] Vargas & Lagola – As Long As I Have To

Just six days ago we covered a sweet little music video from Vargas & Lagola. A whole week hasn’t even passed and they already have something else that has come out. That something else happens to be the single “As Long As I Have To.”

The duo’s indie meets electronic style is played out in a vibey tune that is perfect for your weekend soirees. It’s a bit different than their previous release, but it can hardly be expected from these two that they would simply release an echo of their previous record. With tracks coming out at this pace, it has us wondering what is on the horizon. We’d wait as long as we have to for something like an LP, but hopefully that is coming sooner rather than later. For now, enjoy “As Long As I Have To” today.

[Electronic] Douchka – Infantile EP

Strap in for a special treat from Douchka and Nowadays Records. The release of the genre-breaching EP Infantile came late last month, but it’s so good that we’re going to have to show it some love still. If it slipped through your grips like us, don’t fret, Infantile is here now for your aural pleasure.

Douchka cooked up a handful of tracks for this project, including the single “Call You Mine” that we previously supported prior to the full EP’s release. Collaborators on the project include Lia who was on the previously mentioned single, as well as Hi Levelz who brings an artistic splash on two tracks. The thing is, we have four of those songs for you today, but you can exclusively listen to the intro, interlude and outro through digital services. Every song on here is something you’re going to want to sit back and listen to in full. Do so today and treat yourself on this hump day.

[Event Preview] Joe Goddard (DJ Set) @ Bar Standard – 5/17 – Denver, CO

Fresh off of the release of genre-busting LP Electric Lines (from which you can stream “Lose Your Love” & “Music Is the Answer” below), Hot Chip founding member and all around production kingpin Joe Goddard has kicked off 2017 glowingly, finding himself in the midst of a lengthy run of North American and European performances. Over the next few weeks, Goddard’s schedule is littered with sets across the U.S. including nights in New York City (5/19), Chicago (5/26), and Miami (5/27); and we’re all kinds of perked up to catch the studio wizard in the flesh, especially on the heels of Electric Lines. Back in December we featured the music video for “Lose Your Love”, which is just one of the many bright spots on his latest long player. Goddard flexes his production muscle effortlessly throughout Electric Lines, tackling the structures and sounds of disco, house, pop, R&B & techno head on, and coming out on the other end largely unscathed. If we’re going off of Goddard’s latest release, we can expect an eclectically programmed set filled with many of his contributions to the worlds of dance and electronic music.

Tomorrow night Joe Goddard will man the decks at the intimate Bar Standard in Denver, CO on behalf of our friends at TheHundred Presents, for which you can still get tickets for here. Enjoy our mini preview playlist in anticipation of Goddard’s remaining U.S. tour dates, and for our Denver friends, we’ll see you on the floor.

[Denver Event Preview/Ticket Giveaway] TMN Presents: Fenech-Soler @ Lost Lake – 5/16

The U.K. based duo consisting of brothers Ross and Ben Duffy, Fenech-Soler, have supplied our highly sensitive Ninja ears with some of the most danceable, tasteful, and wistful electro-pop for years. First appearing on our hallowed pages all the way back in 2009, Fenech-Soler have fashioned an even tighter grasp on their cheery synth-pop iterations in the time since. This year, the pair have already unveiled two full releases in the form of their LP Zilla, and the appropriately titled cover EP The Covers; which both sound of a band confidently coming to terms with their sound while steadily refining it. Loaded with personality and excellent fits of experimentation, their latest releases have been straightforward, unashamed pop music fusing indie sensibilities with grandiose synths and razor-sharp electronic production that we know will play wonderfully in a live scenario. Yet another reason we are thrilled to be presenting their next live date in beautiful Denver, CO at Lost Lake Lounge.
