Riva Starr feat Rssll – Absence [official video]

Riva Starr, the eclectic London DJ/Producer, whose won over loyal fans in the likes of Annie Mac, Gilles Peterson, Swedish House Mafia, is starting the year strong with his latest single “Absence”. The softly and opaque original not only demonstrates his ability to compose intricate sounds full of surrealism and esoteric elements but also illustrates his maturity as a producer since his first introduction to the UK underground house scene in 2009.

The effortlessly charming single is accompanied by its official music video, drawing from European experimental cinema and theatre and creepy scenes that feel taken out of a David Lynch film.

GUTS – Django Remix [Soundtrack]

After experiencing one of the best movies ever created, Inglorious Bastards, it was obvious that another Tarantino revenge story would provide just as much pleasure. Django, a love story that wraps around themes of revenge and justice was accompanied by one of the most modern soundtracks in the last couple of years. However, the main Django theme song is not so recent, originally composed in 1966 by Luis Bacalov. Spanish producer Guts, took the already excellent original and made a slow, easily digesting chill rendition.

[Rock] Wavves – Demon To Lean On

On March 26th, Wavves will be dropping their latest LP, Afraid of Heights, of which lead singer Nathan Williams has described as having a theme of “depression and anxiety, being death-obsessed and paranoid of impending doom.” The band’s latest track, “Demon To Lean On,” certainly exhibits all of those sentiments exactly. Channeling a 90′s sound that sounds eerily similar to Green Day, Williams and co have been able to construct a song that’s a lot less surf rock and more hopeless angst. It’s tough for a song to feel nostalgic and refreshing at the same time, but that’s exactly what Wavves have been able to do with this fantastic new single.
