We had a couple firsts on this episode with Brian, half of DJ duo Cosmic Crates, in the studio for a live mixing sesh. Before we got into that that, I opened up playing catch up on some of my favorite new indie rock/pop releases from Jay Som, The Sufis, Frankie Cosmos, Slenderbodies and more. When Brian joins for the second half, we chop it up about the Cosmic Crates project, his experience growing up in Detroit and thoughts on the state of electronic music today. For the final hour, we had a fun live b2b mixing session sharing some deep and hazy house cuts.

[Electronic] Whynnel – Murvan


We were first introduced to Slovenian producer Whynnel upon the launch of Heroic Recordings‘ ominous, aptly-named counterpart Villain. “Mitzdi,” the first release from the mysterious beatsmith, established a sonic landscape that finds beauty and relaxation in its darkness. That saga continues with “Murvan,” a bleak but gorgeous composition. The song expands on Whynnel’s under-water aesthetic, which subdues sounds to the point where it feels like they are gasping for air. The true emotion in “Murvan” is driven by its subtle contrasts–reaching the greatest heights when the instrumentation peaks its head out for a breathe. Vibe out to this one-of-a-kind tune above and grab a copy here.
