Excited to share with you a new release by 2 of my favourite ambient / experimental producers – edapollo & Koresma.

Our paths have crossed with these guys long time ago – I had the pleasure of meeting Ed (edapollo) last year in Bali and we  released our first label release with Ryan (Koresma), so as you can imagine their music is dear to my heart.

We firstly shared the original “Adam’s Peak” back in July last year when it was released and it absolutely blew my mind. Super lushful and touching, hands down one of the most beautiful electronic released for 2018 in my book. A few weeks ago, Koresma added his organic signature sound and crafted a beautiful “offspring” stemming from the original – the delightfulness you’re experiencing as you read those lines.

A little bit of Tycho makes every day 10x better.

Reviving the title track off Tycho’s 2016 album with an absolutely refreshing new rendition crafted by US producer Luttrell.

If you are daydreaming of those spacious summer days, open airs, chilling with friends and driving around with your windows open… well, that’s all somehow reflected in this “Epoch” remix

It always feels weirdly cool when featuring someone’s very first track. This is the case with London-based newcomer Lu.Re.

Her first release titled “Rains” is upbeat, r&b / broken beats-driven Friday afternoon groove kind of track… all that wrapped around her killer vocal abilities.

Speaking on the single, Lu.Re says…

“I started out improvising with a garage beat and some jazz piano chords, and built the rest up from there. I recorded all the instrumentals in my flat in East London. If you listened to the viola and backing vocals separately, you’d probably hear some Overground trains passing by.

The lyrical idea came from my mum when I was at home for the weekend in Bedford. She was a bit teary-eyed and said something like, “it doesn’t rain in this house, it pours”. It was one of those affecting moments that sticks, and it felt natural writing about it – I had most of the lyrics down in an afternoon.”

I feel we should be keeping a close eye on this girl.

If you want a lovely start of your day, MYSM’s new track “Fucked Up Today” is your perfect coffee soundtrack.

Silky female vocals and downtempo-driven electronics, this is definitely a reason to smile (regardless of track’s name).

“Fucked Up Today” is inspired by those smooth LoFi tracks, which are popular on Youtube right now.

The idea was to give it this LoFi retro feel in the quieter parts and then open it up and make it nicely bassy, warm and a bit more HiFi in in the louder parts to give the listener an interesting switch in the feeling of the track.

I’ve been a fan of Elsa Hewitt for a few years now so I’m a little surprised that I’ve never shared her music with you folks.

To put that right here’s her soothing new track called “Rolling In Your Wall”.

Calming yet energising, and rich yet spacious, the new offering flows with ease as its pulsating electronic production beautifully marries Hewitt’s delightfully airy vocal harmonies.

While it’s cold outside ‘Rolling In Your Wall’ brings a certain warmth.

Alice Phoebe Lou has won her spot in our hearts a long, long time ago. Juan and I met the South African singer-songwriter back in …2014 when we recorded a session with. To this day, one of the best and most interesting experiences I’ve had when it comes to the “offline” part of doing this project. The video did more than a million of views and while it’s just a number it felt somehow… good.

Flash forward to present days, Alice is gearing up for a new record. She’s been winning people’s hearts and minds and I am happy to see she is getting the attention she deserves. So, why are we here? The new single off her upcoming album got released a few days ago and I wanted to share it with you.

Alice Phoebe Lou - Skin Crawl (official video) - YouTube

I find the sound somehow more mature / less naive (not in a negative way) than her earlier works I fell in love with. “Skin Crawl” – from it’s sonic universe all the way to the visuals coming with it is… captivating, to say the least. Before reading these next following lines, I felt some sort of heaviness embodied in it, but I couldn’t tell why. Then I read the words this track came with…

I was in the heart of Manhattan after taking myself on a solo date to watch Angel Olsen & I was feeling elated. I ended up at a bar, drinking a few drinks with strangers. I felt dizzy and left to call a cab. The last thing I remember, I was standing on a corner, unable to comprehend how my phone worked, feeling as though my world was upside down, panicking. A few hours are then lost and I never got them back. Then I’m suddenly in Brooklyn and it’s 4 AM, I’m barely able to walk, with a man I’ve never seen and he’s taking me somewhere. I remember thinking that he must be taking me to safety, because I was falling over and clearly needed to be in a safe place. Something kicked in and I realized I was in danger. I dropped my jacket and ran as fast as I could. Running and falling and crying and pissing my pants. I’ve never been that afraid. Kind strangers brought me to safety. The next day I was a wreck. Trying to rack my brain and understand how someone slipped something into my drink. But I was lucky. Many people aren’t. 

It took me days to feel ok again. Physically and in my mind. But I realized how important it was for me to not let that moment define me and change something that was so important to me; the independence of going out alone. So, I did it again. Only a few days later. Trying to release the fear and not let it control me. I went to a Fela Kuti night and danced my feet off. But I remember being so acutely aware of the men around me on the dance floor; how often I was touched in places I didn’t want to be, how many times I was grabbed, told to smile, rubbed up against, you name it. I felt like I had to fend men off like it was some sort of sick game and the circumstances made it so difficult for me to just enjoy myself. I got home full of fire, ready to turn it all on its head, write a song from my perspective about what pisses me off, to get it off my chest and then set fire to it in my mind so it has no hold on me. It’s about the little things; the words, the comments, the feeling that ripples through your skin every time you’re told you’re a bitch because you don’t want to give him your number. Because for me, it’s the little things that are the starting point of a broader culture of non-consent and sexual aggression. And I guess I needed to write a song that was straight to the point. I find that when dealing with “heavy” subject matter that is important to you, it can be a tricky balance trying to get the message across while keeping up the poetry.

I went through a lot as a teenager and young woman, experiencing a range of extremely negative and traumatic incidences at the hands of men. This is not to say that I paint men with a single brush. I am lucky to have an incredible community of supportive, sensitive and wonderful men around me, in my band and social life, and I am so grateful for them. These are the same men that appear in my music video for “Skin Crawl,” close friends who were happy to play a role in a video where I could use them as my objects and my furniture in order to turn things on their head. The video was a joy to make; a DIY, low budget, full of love day. The song’s intention is to ask that we all work towards a world where we strive to make each other feel comfortable and safe at all times. That’s the dream really. Cozy and safe and equal.

“Skin Crawl” is the second single from upcoming new album, Paper Castles, scheduled for March 8th this year.

Not sure which I love more about Strehlow’s “Mila Coolness” – track’s superb zen beat or it’s actual name which I assume is inspired by Mila Kunis. Made me smile the first time I stumbled upon the 2 minutes of chill.

The beat is taken off Chillhop Record’s Winter 2018 Essentials released last month, but I’ve been meaning to feature it for a while since it’s been a source of calming feels for a while now. Plus, the US producer is seriously talented and would be great to be a more frequent “visitor” in our fox sound feed.

Woah, it’s been a while I’ve featured some seductive and upbeat r&b soundwaves, but the new Marie Dahlstrøm track couldn’t be missed. The vibe is outrageously awesome. The Danish-born, London-based artist teams up with Secaina and continues to showcase her organic take on contemporary alt r&b.

We’ve been following Marie for a while now and I think she’s one of the people who really push forward the contemporary r&b sound. I love her jazz influences, although “Mood” definitely goes into more seductive side of things. Her choice to invite Secaina is spot-on. A self-taught innovative artist who essentially writes, produces, sings and records all of her music herself.

When speaking about “Mood”, Marie shares…

“We wrote the song with the intention to put listeners in a trance – then Douglas & Sally portrayed that visually through dance.”

This fire comes with a video, which you can watch below. Enjoy!

If calmness was a sound, it would definitely take the shape of Andreas Söderström & Rickard Jäverling’s “Norra udden”.

The mind-soothing composition, taken off their upcoming album, will take you on a gentle, guitar-driven lullaby… just like a walk in wet grass fields on an early spring morning.

Andreas Söderström and Rickard Jäverling are both big names in the scene for instrumental music in Sweden. Jäverling recently released a solo album on Höga Nord and he is also a part of Dödens Dal and Jäverling-von Euler. Söderström has released four albums as his alias ASS and numerous more together with Johan Berthling (Fire Orchestra, Tape).

On Adelsö they have made an effort to take it back to the basics. Two guitars, simple field recordings and repetitive melodies. The album was recorded on the island of Adelsö in the middle of lake Mälaren. The water acts as both background noice and inspiration. Romantic and harsh at the same time. Minimal in its approach but with multiple hidden layers of depth.

It’s been mad busy few days, hence I didn’t have much opportunity to sit down and write feature, but on the bright side – I’ve found tons of good music.

Calming down with this latest Radio Juicy release – a joint collab between Psalm Trees & Moose Dawa taken from their upcoming album Dreams From The Shore (scheduled for March this year). What I loved about “No Lies”, besides the laid back beat, are the Andras Szilagyi vocals and the way they’re done. Absolutely soothing.
