Mark Instinct & LUMBERJVCK
The Block ft. Strap Deez
Los Angeles producer LUMBERJVCK makes his way back to Kannibalen Records, this time with Mark Instinct and Strap Deez. The two producers join up for a booming hybrid instrumental called “The Block,” which gets murdered by raps from The Block Society owner, Strap Deez. With all three together, the final product is a straight up beast that is likely to end up attacking the upcoming events in SXSW and Miami. LUMBERJVCK and Mark Instinct are some of the most distinct bass producers in the game, and their coming together shows just what they can do playing off another’s talents. Get yourself a copy of “The Block” here.
Little seems to be known about newcomer, MAALA. The only information that we can muster from his single release, “Touch,” is that he is bringing some serious talent to the table.
Imagine The Weeknd having a play date with Chet Faker before listening to debut track, “Touch.” The steamy production intertwined with MAALA’s soulful voice sets a sensual mood that will have you yearning for some romance. Unshakable memories about an old flame and some seriously deep feels are provoked with the lingering lyrics of “Touch,” making this track one in which the nostalgia will be unescapable. So Ninjas, get ready to be turned on to MAALA.
FIGHT CLVB & Hilmi feat. Angger Dimas
Love some jungle beats? So do we. So does Dim Mak, who swooped up an original from FIGHT CLVB. The New York act collaborated with Hilmi and Angger Dimas on an original, “Frog Mode,” that was released for free. Their work is about as wacky as you can get, which makes this song insanely fun to listen to, without even getting to the dancing. Some of these sounds are straight out of left field, or straight from the wilderness, meaning that “Frog Mode” is the result of some cool experimentation in the studio. We love it, and we’re sure you will too, if you like to get a little crazy. I can just see the act’s hypeman Mystereo now, going absolutely bonkers to this one live, with the whole crowd doing just the same.
Drop whatever you’re doing and listen to this. Coyote Kisses came out with this fresh original track titled “Ferrari”, and it’s one of those tunes that’ll make you get up and dance. The LA-based producer mixes uplifting synth with a bouncy beat, creating a high energy piece that resembles the sound of MitiS and Wave Racer. The future melodies highlight the beat drop, showcasing their finesse and character. Whether you’re chilling on your couch, cruising in your car or dancing in a big room, this tune serves as an all-purpose anthem that is pure electronic goodness.

Moving Castle is back! There’s no denying the influence that this talented group has built, especially with their signature brand reaching some of the highest levels in electronic music (*cough* Skrillex *cough*). Their expansion in such a short time with four projects under their belt is inspiring to say the least, and this newest endeavor finds Moving Castle at a defining point within their rise. With each collection, there’s been an increase in the number of artists that contribute, and the scope of the overall sound they are envisioning flourishes alongside that fact.
The importance of diversification within music can never be overstated, and the inclusion of a myriad of unique upcoming producers, vocalists and beatsmiths has set up this stellar assortment to be their most ambitious project to date. From names new to the compilation series, like Treehaus, Catt Moop and Chet Porter, to founding members, Robokid, AOBeats and Manila Killa, Vol. 004 shines brightly with an all star roster, and the quality reflected throughout speaks volumes as to what Moving Castle is capable of achieving. We’ll go ahead and let the music doing the talking now, so stream the glossy and pristine new volume below. Be sure to grab your own free copy here also!

Get It Up (STRAIGHT A Remix)
HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE! We figured we’d started off this week of SXSW with a spectacular premiere courtesy of Straight A and Pr0files. The original “Get It Up” holds true to an almost 80′s sound that is glossed over with a modern twist, but Straight A reshapes the track in his own unique way. By pumping up the tempo and supplementing the vocals with sparkling new synths and atmosphere, Straight A solidified an absurdly catchy and fresh rendition that is an essential introduction to the springtime ahead. Bust out your sunglasses and roll your windows down, because this is a jam that requires sun and fresh air for an overall great time. Enjoy below!
