New Release: Sonnymoon – Just Before Dawn

One of our favourite labels around, Plug Research (home to Exile, Bilal, Boom Clap Bachelors) have ferociously tugged on our ears yet again with the beautifully balmy tones of Experimental duo Sonnymoon. The track Just Before Dawn is stripped-back chill-out music in its purist form, with just simple synth-work and a magical melody. But as the song progresses, it builds and enters new realms of frequency that blew us away when combined with visuals from Gordon Hendrick and Hunter Steinman. The release is part of a free compilation that Plug Research wanted to share with everyone: ‘all brand new music coming out on plug during the spring quarter of 2012’, which you can download for free right here!

New Release: xxyyxx – Overdone (Anneka Remix)

16 year old producer xxyyxx has brought us another gem this month, mixing an acapella version of Anneka’s Shut Her Down with his ambient production skills.

New Release: Burial & Four Tet – Nova

Released just minutes ago from Four Tet’s Soundcloud page, release number thirteen on his Text label sees him collaborating with old sparring partner Will Bevan (aka Burial). First impressions are that it could almost be a solo Burial track.

New Artist: Dante

Dante Kinnunen, once the drummer for The Concretes, has applied his skills to the world of Electronic-RnB-Soul this year with his solo project under the alias Dante. His music tends to merge his own voice (akin to Nina Simone) with a score of rich productions.
