I discovered these guys from bandcamp, listened to a snippet of the first song and I fell in love. I'd like to say this group is from Portugal but I'm not too sure. They remind me of a new modern My Bloody Valentine in some ways, very noisy, minimal, and 90s vibe. From the beginning of the EP to the end it keeps you busy listening to its dreamy psychedelic drone pop sounds and washed out vocals. Check out and download entire EP below...

First heard this Young Montana track on the mix he did for BTS Radio and I was blown away. So intricately layered with chopped up vocals and mind churning beats, makes this song one of my favorites at the moment.

Within the past two weeks Kanye has dropped three new tracks, and they all have been above and beyond expectations. His upcoming album is definitely going to be something. 'Lord Lord Lord Ft. Mos Def, Raekwon, Swizz Beats and Charlie Wilson' is his latest dropped track and in my opinion the best one so far.
Kanye West - Monster (ft. Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Bon Iver & Nicki Minaj)
Kanye West - Runaway (ft. Pusha T)
Kanye West - Lord Lord Lord (ft. Mos Def, Swizz Beats, Raekwon & Charlie Wilson)

I'm so glad I got to see Warpaint at FYF festival, they were probably one of my favorite performances of the day. Saw them perform 'Undertow' and it absolutely blew my mind. This song will be released on their upcoming LP, 'The Fool', on Oct. 25.

So my brother from Buffalo, New York, just sent over a mix he made for his blog, and it contains all my current favorites. Young Montana, Teebs, Letherette, and some others. Everything these experimental beat artists are doing with their sound has not once disappointed me; they are all pure genius. Future sounds of music right here, so organic and so real.

I was recently searching through some bandcamp tags and I came across, Pikasso. This guy's sound is absolutely refreshing to hear; his song, 'Amnesiac', made me jump out of my chair and start dancing. So intricately beautiful with his beats and dub wonky sounds. If Kidkanevil and Free The Robots had a baby it'd be Pikasso.

Teebs did a Svetlana Shortcast mix this past May and I've been trying to get a hold of it for a while, I now finally found it! It's absolutely brilliant taking you on an 18min adventure of euphoric dream-drone beats and nothing but chillwave sounds. I actually got to speak to Teebs for a quick minute at the beloved Low End Theory, he's a super down to earth and humble guy; Chino Hills REPRESENT! Download below...

Alex B takes Mux Mool's track, 'Hog Knuckles', and transforms it into a beautifully broken down head bobbing tune. Its so heavy and rich in it's technicality of sounds, absolutely getting you lost inside.
