[Alternative/Hip-Hop] Theophilus London -Snow Angel ft Trouble Andrew

It woud be an understatement to say that Theophilus London is one of the more experimental and eclectic up and coming artists. With a unique flow, he seems to have the distinct ability to flow well over a wide range of beats. From trap to hip-hop to alternative rock, he is not afraid to reach outside the proverbial box of his “genre” and deliver some dope new music. On the 3rd week of dropping new material, the Brooklyn native teams up with pro-snowboarder Trouble Andrew on the track “Snow Angel”. This trippy and laid-back tune comes courtesy of trap producer Uzi and some Radiohead samples. Not sure if this track is an endorsement/praising of the snowboarder but it is still pretty interesting. Be sure to check out the free single below.

Gramatik – Bluestep

Leave it to Gramatik to seamlessly create a new subgenre. Gramatik, as we have described before, has had funk, soul, blues and jazz running through his veins since he was a toddler, and while that alone doesn’t give him the authority to on all these genres, his music clearly does. Bluestep is a complex yet simply layered experimentation merging two complete opposite genres into one seamless sound. There are no limits to what Gramatik cannot mix together and this is just another example of his brilliance.

[Introducing] Robert DeLong & album debut ‘Just Movement’

The essence of dance electronica, comprised by production perseverance and experimentation, lends itself to scrutiny for having particularly niche sounds. Modern ambassadors of the genre fight the battle every day of being tied down to similar themes and musical concepts, and even few are able to evolve from the monotony of the scene. Robert DeLong, the 26-year-old. multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles has broken this barrier, almost effortlessly, with the release of his debut album ‘Just Movement’.

Growing up in Seattle, Robert DeLong had the opportunity to be influenced by bands like Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse, and Pedro the Lion, apparent if only in short glimpses in his music. After moving to L.A., playing in an indie rock, studying jazz and later earning a living teaching drum lessons, his current project almost seems an obvious outcome.

Complex by Degree

Signed to Glassnote Records, Robert DeLong presents an impressive repertoire of 13 tracks that comprises Just Movement album. Each track is deliberately crafted to expose the minor details of rhythm and emotional harmony with a complete twist on modern dance music. Fine layers of bouncy and catchy percussions provide the footing for DeLong’s natural and amiable vocals. The self-titled opening track, simplistic in sound, is reminiscent of the experimentation of Jimmy Tamborello’s solo project Dntel combined with the dance appeal of a Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs single. But with all its similarities, Robert DeLong stands on his own.

Right after the soothing first track, many more speechless moments occured for this impressed Editor. We are honored to blog about music every single day but Robert DeLong epitomizes the perfect rising artist. His goosebumps inducing music not only provides comfort at first listen but it makes one feel part of a new movement, a new sound that everyone must listen. ‘Global Concepts’ advanced the dance aspect of the album with playful instrumentation, rooted in natural organic drumming. Cheerful tracks like ‘Happy’ bring light to the experience with flirtatious whistles and prominent indie rock themes.

But not all is light-hearted electronica, ‘Survival of the Fitest’ includes slight elements of dubstep and industrial electronics and prevalent drop and release structures.

In short, Just Movement is simply just amazing. It breaths more like a mixtape than a coherent album but that quickly becomes irrelevant. Balancing different genres, exposing harmonies between his very own vocals and the beautiful production of every track, ‘Just Movement’ has won us over and will become a contender for top albums of 2013 lists.

[Mixtape] Kilo Kish – K+

Female emcees have been on the up and coming this past year or so and in 2013 they continue to drop some unique material. With Brooklyn-based Kilo Kish‘s mixtape K+, she takes a more experimental approach to her rhyme flow. With features from Earl Sweatshirt, SBTRKT, Childish Gambino, Star Slinger, Flatbush Zombies, Vince Staples, and A$AP Ferg, and many more, this free 10-track tape is a chill, dope session introduction into her world. Mixing some intricate Internet-y vibes and synth rhythms with a charming lyrically delivery, there is something to like about this newcomer. Although each track flows and blends well into the next, some standout tracks are “Creepwave” (which you can stream below) and Neptune-esque “iou”.
