It seems like every time we turn a corner on the internet we run into some young, extremely talented producer. Well, around today’s bend lies 19 year old Floridian producer Matthew Postrel. There’s no doubt that garage has a permanent place in EDM, being one of the oldest forms. So, it’s always great when we hear someone pick it up and do it well. Matthew has accomplished a delicious future garage track that features well sampled vocals, beat skipping kicks, a big smooth groovy bassline, and atmospheric sounds that give a unique listening experience. This being Matthew’s first release, we’re certainly impressed and eager to hear more.

Head over to his facebook page and snag a free download of this young artists very first published track.

[R&B/Soul] John Legend – Who Do We Think We Are (Feat. Rick Ross)

Who Do We Think We Are (ft. Rick Ross)

After nearly five years, John Legend is finally gearing up to release his fourth studio album. Last week, John gave us a preview of his album with the stellar track, “The Beginning.” Today, he brings us the first single from Love In The Future, “Who Do We Think We Are,” assisted by frequent collaborator, Rick Ross. Believe it or not, after all the songs the two have made together, this is the first time Ross is returning the favor by appearing on one of Mr. Legend’s records. The chemistry between them is undeniable, and as always, Legend’s vibrant, soulful vocals steal the show, just as they rightfully should. Ross brings things down to earth a bit, but in a “let’s pause for a second and remind everyone I’m the boss” kind of way. “Who Do We Think We Are” definitely serves as an appropriate introduction to Love In The Future, and we definitely look forward to seeing what else John Legend has in store for us in 2013.

[Chill] Atu – Pictures on Silence (EP)

3641404679-1

Michigan-based, Malawi- native, Atu, represents a new class of producers creating minimal, lo-fi instrumentals utilizing distorted and manipulated R&B samples. The latest project from the 20-year old artist, Pictures on Silence, floats seamlessly from start to finish providing a unique, turned-down and inverted listening experience.Fans of 2000s R&B will vaguely recognize samples from artists such as Alicia Keys, Ray J and Boyz II Men among others through out Atu’s work. This collection elevates the listener to a tranquil state of suspension somewhere at the intersection of trippy, romantic and ambient.

In order to support his place of birth, Atu has released the album on Bandcamp with a starting price of $5, all of which is donated to support children in Malawi. Check out a few of our favorite tracks below, grab some great music and help support a worthwhile cause here: αtμ - Pictures on Silence.

Greenleaf (Twice As Nice Remix)

After showing us what they could do with Little Daylight’s “Overdose” and Oceans’ “Coast”, Australian duo Twice As Nice are back with another head-turning remix. Packing big, beautiful and bright synths, they transform the Generationals’ jangly indie rock tune, “Greenleaf”, into a soaring, technicolor dreamscape. A definite must-listen for fans of Passion Pit or straight-up sunny synth pop, it’s yet another piece of evidence that these Aussies have what it takes to put together an infectious rework. Tune in and grab the free download!

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #30

chill dojo

Seems crazy to think we’ve already hit another milestone with 30…30 Chill Dojos (insert Sesame Street Count laugh here). There’s always the desire to deliver a playlist fitting for the occasion, and luckily this week has seen enough amazing music to compile a mammoth edition of 30 tracks! There’s a heap of amazing talent on show here, so let’s waste no time and dive straight in.

Garage vibes are the flavor of the week, and when it comes to this style there’s no doubt the UK does it best. No idea how we slept on this remix of ‘Attracting Flies’ from Shift Key, but we’re making up for it by placing it on top as the absolute must-listen this week. This is a style that is so easy to love, and luckily UK group Clean Bandit keep similar vibes flowing with their official remix for the forthcoming Rudimental album, Home.  And there’s no way we can talk UK garage without the latest from Kidnap Kid who continues to pump out dancefloor-ready magic. Dancefloor and magic did you say? No apologies for this terrible segue, but that leads perfectly into the newest Viceroy release, which of course is oozing with that summer feeling. If that wasn’t enough excitement for one week, another dojo favorite in Shook also let loose a groovy funkalicious jam just a few days ago, and has been heavy on replay ever since. In addition, there’s more dancey tunes courtesy of Drop Out Orchestra, Cassian, and Kaytranada, more infectious beats from Moods and Mr. Carmack, plus another freebie from Sizzlebird, who rarely goes a week without another mention in the dojo.

The rest is yours to discover, so take your time and wind down in the best way possible. Peace out.

[LIVE] Yasiin Bey – The Light Is Not Afraid of the Dark

Yasiin_Bey

While out at The Shrine in Chicago the other night, Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) decided to premiere an unreleased joint called “The Light Is Not Afraid of the Dark.” Originally intended for his third studio album, Tru3 Magic, the Kanye West-produced track unfortunately never made the final cut. Deciding to dig it out of the grave though, Mos decided it would only be appropriate to breathe new life into the track in Kanye’s hometown. Some of you may or may not remember, but the release of Tru3 Magic was rife with controversy, as Mos pushed it out with no real promotion or official album art. Many even reported that the album was unfinished, which may explain why gems like these were left off the record. Let’s just hope Mr. Bey continues with his giving mood and provides us with a proper version of this track sometime soon. A few more songs from the vault wouldn’t hurt either.
