No Message ft. Argenis Brito (Dub Mix)
Lines (Rare Times Remix)
L.A. duo Rare Times has been carving out a nice little niche in their city for the past few years with a charmingly executed brand of downtempo, synth-wave meets indie-pop, and their latest effort sees them hopefully stepping out into national consciousness on remix duty for The Hics’ single “Lines”. Just as we had anticipated, Rare Times’ production sensibility serves them well with a dancefloor centered approach translating much of their own shimmer onto the track without sacrificing their integral sound. A garagey, shuffling hi-hat pattern and smooth alto-sax loop provides most of the groove on their minimal remix of “Lines”, while a pitched down, haunting vocal sample manages to intertwine its way into the fold almost seamlessly, leaving just enough polish on the dance tune to force some hip-shaking, but absolutely nothing that has been overproduced. If you haven’t yet heard any of Rare Times’ previous music, please go ahead and dive into their catalog to get a feel for their diverse sound, especially their 2013 EP Mist. Stream Rare Times’ remix of The Hics’ “lines” above.
On a side note, if you happen to be in the L.A. area tomorrow, make sure to head to the Troubador to catch their show in support of Hercules and Love Affair.
It has been great to have Childish Gambino back. In the last few weeks, the unique and fresh emcee has resurfaced continuing to evolve his sound. This morning, Bino returns to his more comical self with a track in honor of the one and only WorldStar Hip-Hop. Over a heavy, minimal beat layered with an appropriate “Worldstar” chant, the multi-talented artist goes with a staggered flow discussing all sorts of mischievous scenarios. Topping it all off, the song closes with an extended, epic horn outro accompanied by the always dope singing voice of Childish in stark contrast to the playful feel of the rest of the song.
Gambino’s Because the Internet drops on December 10th. In the meantime, enjoy and grab a free download above. Also, make sure to check out his incredible and unconventional freestyle over Drizzy’s “Pound Cake” from his recent stop at Sway in the Morning after the jump!
Artist Dan Vidmar travels back in time into some R&B bedroom fantasies with his soulful, “Second Heartbeat.” Under the alias Shy Girls, this new single carries some hints of pop influence and a wide mix of synth beats. Vidmar is definitely channeling the rhythms of an 80’s romance movie soundtrack number with the catchiness of the hook and electronic keys. Each note plays to the senses and smooth melodies make it hard to forget once the nearly three and a half track finishes. This is the first single off Vidmar’s upcoming Timeshare EP, dropping 10/28 in the UK and 10/29 in the US.
Wonder Feat. The Kite String Tangle
Few things in life get us quite as excited as new material from Adventure Club. The Canadian production duo take a break from the dubstep with their latest outing, stringing together an enchantingly hypnotizing soundscape with a melody that’s still perfectly danceable. Their single is only complimented even further by adding in the dazzling vocals of The Kite String Tangle, the solo project from electronic producer, Danny Harley. This spectacular new cut can be found on Adventure Club’s brand new EP, Calling All Heroes, Pt. 1, which is available on iTunes now.
The other night JMSN tweeted out, “Every time I listen to my new album drunk, I get excited about it. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.” To us that seems like a positive sign, and after listening to his latest single, “The One,” we couldn’t be anymore excited for his new project ourselves. “The One” is another deeply layered and atmospheric soulful masterpiece that allows us to wander along inside JMSN’s mind as he struggles to figure out whether his current lover is truly that special person. This one is definitely worthy of multiple spins as you await the release of †Pllajë†, which is due out on November 5th.
Solange Knowles takes a step out of the shadows and into a leadership role with her new independent label and compilation album. The group enlists the vocal talents of Jhene Aiko, Cassie, Sampha, Jade J, Starchild, BC Kingdom, and many more for a fresh exploration of sound and culture. As a journey into a new music experiment with plenty of talent from the mainstream and the underground, the album Saint Heron serves as the annual compilation from Saint Records, with “Go All Night” being the first single from the upcoming project, dropping Nov. 12th. With a soothing, soulful Morri$ produced beat, Kelela‘s melodic vocals make this track a smooth listen.
