LA-Based producer AWAY brings us a massive remix of RL Grime’s hit single “Undo”. We are first introduced to a haunting lullaby-esque melody, followed by industrial synthesis and metallic percussive elements, we’ve come to know so well from this talented producer.
Having already caught the attention of genre leaders like San Holo with his future-bass sound, the Mumbai, India-based producer 32Stitches is back with track that combines intensely personal vocals with a noticeably happy future bass energy to match. “Do To You,” his final track of the year, is out now and tells a story of the pains and pleasures of love, and will be instantly relatable to any listener.
Charlie Crown is no newcomer to the scene but “Loner” is a debut single of his. To clarify, Crown is the artist formerly known as Flapo, a producer who experienced considerable success releasing music on imprints like Dim Mak and PRMD. With his new moniker, Charlie Crown is looking to express his creativity in ways he never has before.
“Loner is a track about feeling disconnected from other people and ultimately the world following the demise of a relationship. It looks to examine the moments at which paths diverge and how we reconcile the emotional weight of such a shift and attempt to create new energy in moving forward.” – Charlie Crown
The man, the myth, the legend known as Teki Latex should be well known to everyone who’s into forward thinking club music. Since his involvement with acclaimed French rap group TTC, he’s emerged as one of the most prolific dj’s/producers out of Paris.
A while back he turned his focus to dj’ing with the purpose of giving every mixtape the same attention that a recording artist would give to an EP/album and hoping that people treat them, listen to them and react to them the same way as they would an album. His recent, mind-bending and boundary pushing “King Of Blends” mixtape trilogy focused on giving iconic pop tracks and classic underground tunes a new context by layering them with more modern and obscure tracks. The mixtape trilogy was lauded with praise.
His absolutely fantastic new mixtape “The Tardigrade’s Lament” is a simpler affair that doesn’t deal with a specific concept or being filled with spectacular blends but instead it’s designed to reflect the vibe of his recent dj sets and also the general melancholic vibe of the last days of summer ie “just a good mixtape to close your eyes and travel mentally to”.
“The tardigrade is a micro-animal found everywhere, from mountain tops to deep sea, from tropical rainforests to the Antartic. It is able to survive extreme temperatures, extreme pressures (both high and low), air deprivation, radiation, dehydration, and starvation. It can have sex in outer space. Under unfavourable conditions, it goes into a state of suspended animation in which it can survive for years or even decades, making the tardigrade virtually immortal. I’m not trying to say « I am like a tardigrade » or « this mixtape is a tardigrade », i’m just saying, tardigrades are really cool.”
We’ve got a fresh new premiere for you today. New Delhi-based duo Zeus X Crona might be newcomers to the global dance music scene, but they’ve knocked this “Fallout” remix out of the park for 32Stitches. The original release was a launching point for the brand new Music High Court imprint and Zeus X Crona’s electrifying rendition is one that’ll surely shake up the masses. With electronic music exploding with popularity in India, 32Stitches will enhance their status as trailblazers in the genre from their territory with this remix and their forthcoming releases. Stream/purchase Zeus X Crona’s newest here.
“Zeus X Crona are one of the few underrated and innovative producers in India, and it’s great to see how far they’ve come. Glad to have them as a part of the remixes!” – 32Stitches
Check out the newly-released official video for the original below:
I have been a long time fan of MEMBA and it is great to hear that they followed up their EP with a massive single “Flash.” Their latest is surely to be dropped all along the festival circuit this summer as it is filled with huge sound design, and anthemic percussion. The subtle vocal is just enough to keep the song moving to its ultimate climax.
