[Electronic] Asmow – Don’t Know How (feat. Aviella)

Asmow
Don't Know How (feat. Aviella)

The mystique surrounding the Portugeues producer Asmow is no gimmick and doesn’t play into the fad of enigma. Instead, the mystery is there to allow for the focus from fans to be directly on what’s important: the music.

Most recently the music is the single “Don’t Know How” featuring the vocalist Aviella, which was released through the Manifesto imprint. Given the producer’s background as a multi-instrumentalist this single is heavily influenced by natural, acoustic sounds with even the synthetic ones having an organic edge to them. “Don’t Know How” is a beautiful single that sets itself right in between several styles of electronic music, giving us something that is extremely accessible, even if you don’t call yourself a lover of anything that can be construed as “EDM.” Love the song like we do? You’re in luck, it’s been released as a free download.

[Electronic/Indie] OddKidOut – Full Circle EP

The Full Circle EP from OddKidOut is more than a simple collection of six singles. It’s a declaration, a beacon of light coming straight from Philly, the birthplace of Neo-soul; a place that hasn’t paid enough attention lately to it’s musical child. OddKidOut’s goal with this project was to push the neo-soul sound to new heights from his and the genre’s home.

Full Circle is a smooth soiree of sounds that move fluidly between each other. Although OddKidOut and producer 1403 were aiming at neo-soul, they don’t exclusively stay within the genre, bringing different moods and textures to the table with each song. Favorites that we’ve been playing out in the dojo are “Angel Dust” and “Wonderfull” but “30,000 Feet” and “Blush” are quite seductive as well. Like what you are hearing? Get a copy of Full Circle off iTunes today.

Our mindset on the EP was to create music that was true to us. We didn’t want to create something that everyone has already heard before. Drawing on inspirations from space, the sea, and many more, we were able to effectively create a project that had influences from a plethora of concepts.

[Hip-Hop] Conrad Clifton – Nitemare (feat. Knesecary)

Conrad Clifton
Nitemare (feat. Knesecary)

Brooklyn producer Conrad Clifton first caught our attention with a dynamic remix that found a beautiful balance between elements of dreamy pop and hard-hitting trap. Often times, SoundCloud discoveries of that nature can lead to a dead end–many producers prove to be one-trick ponies, others seem to have struck lightning their one and only time. The most delightful cases, though, occur when a producer surprises you with both quality and sonic diversity. Such has been the case thus far with Clifton’s subsequent glimpses into his upcoming debut album, Beautiful Tragedy.

On his latest single, Clifton showcases yet another facet of his production talents with the help of Texas emcee Knesecary. “Nitemare” grows out of an eerie loop that leaves just the right amount of room for the vocals to glide between the cracks. As Knesecary’s rhymes get more complex so does the production making for an enveloping, mischievous build. Conrad was kind enough to give us some insight into how the song came together:

Most of my songs come from searching through random virtual instruments, and when I came across this echoing plucked string sound effect, it immediately felt like something you’d hear in a scary movie. For “Nitemare”, I literally built the whole track around it…I’ve known Knes for years, ever since I lived in Texas around 2000 – and we did a lot of songs together back then, but I’m really glad I was able to highlight his talent here. He translated what the music was saying with the perfection of a seasoned vet, and the craft of a true lover of Hip-Hop.

If you’re digging this tune, make sure to pre-order Beautiful Tragedy, which drops on April 28th. The release will also be the first on his label, Infinity Pool Recordings, which in his own words will focus on “forward-thinking Electronic music, and Hip-Hop.”

Awoltalk & Reach
Red Handed (feat. NKOLO)

Some songs can hook you right from the start whether it be through intriguing instrumentation or enticing vocals. On Awoltalk & Reach‘s “Redhanded,” that feeling is induced as soon as the dreamy pads drop in. The duo’s collab comes as a nice surprise and a melodic vocal by NKOLO similarly keeps things fresh from the start. It’s a solid blend of trap, pop and progressive sounds all brought together with a lush production style. So listen up and stream “Redhanded.” We’ll definitely be on the lookout for more from these artists.
