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.

New Artist: Rhye

We first heard Rhye on an excellent mix Robbin Hannibal put together for Gilles Peterson in October last year. Back then they were called Rye and there was no information available on them, except that they were signed to Innovative Leisure. This month they finally released Open, the track that had first caught our eye.

New Release: Shlohmo – Vacation EP

Vacation, the new release from LA native Shlohmo is the epitome of all that is good about this young producer. Its three tracks melt together down tempo synths, well poised glitch, RnB snares, iconic syncopated guitars and warm, rumbling bass.
