Another summer is nearing its end and what a summer it has been, the people behind french label Dirty Sound System provides us with another one of their mesmerizing seasonal mixes.
CUCO is according to the Urban dictionary, a mythical ghost monster but Omar Banos out of Los Angeles is far from a monster, he is instead a 19-year old Mexican-American artist who has been making serious waves with his bedroom produced dreamy pop/r’n’b/hip hop sound.
Newfound Dutch imprint The Long Echo have hit the ground running with a poignant pledge to fuel the world of electronic chill with top-shelf material. Based on the label’s debut single, an intricate little number from mysterious newcomer Cruel Clouds, this is not a brand to sleep on if you’re looking for an ambient aural escape.
Xan Griffin is fast becoming associated with an emotively tinted take of the future/pop world. Teaming up with Emilia Ali this month as part of his ongoing Zodiac project, ‘Cancer’ forms a delicate yet easy flowing injection of toned down future bass fundamentals with a firm melodic pulse. There’s an attention to detail found in the Californian newcomer’s work that is fast separating Xan from the heard, as beautifully summarized via this emotively evocative vocal offering.
MalmÃ¶ based Totte Stankovich is perhaps more well known by his monikers Totte and DRTY HANDS, he’s been producing and releasing top charted house, future garage and future bass singles. He is also the mastering engineer on some of the best performing HMWLs/WLRs releases including all Swim material. This smooth, deep house take of the Swim single is an absolute corker.
