WOOOOAH mindblown. We just featured a new track from TastyTreat last week, and since then they’ve returned with yet another incredibly produced, and incredibly different piece of sonic art, “Summer (Don’t Go).” An indie dance vintage vibe dripping in lighthearted soulful lyrics reminiscing on Summer’s inevitable kiss goodbye. I am a huge fan.

“Summer (Don’t Go)” comes as the fourth release on Lowly Palace’s urban imprint: Lowly.

For this next edition of our Discobelle Mix series, Melbourne based Kendl has granted us the gift of exclusively sharing his second ever mix on the internet airwaves. His meticulous curation of records mixed with his own unreleased originals and remixes will align your heartbeat with the BPM of the universe. He is definitely one to keep your eyes and ears on, as some of these dreamy IDs will come to fruition in the nearby future.

San Holo should be at the top of everyone’s radar. After pioneering his own unique brand of brass music and founding a label, bitbird, to host it all, he returns with “I Still See Your Face.” A feel-good rhythmic jam that stays true to San Holo’s instantly recognizable sound, “ISSYF” is a bit more chilled out and for the first time featuring he very own vocals on a track.

This track comes as the first single off of bitbird’s Gouldian Finch 2 Compilation due out in late October.

The past couple of years has seen Hotel Garuda evolve far beyond the remits on in-demand remixers. Three original singles deep, ‘Till It Burns Out’ shows just how much the North American duo, known elsewhere as Manila Killa and Candle Weather, has evolved since singing with PRMD Music. Calling on the fine vocal work of Violet Skies, the track’s new age future bass influences blend perfectly with a standout vocal performance from the Welsh singer, adding to a sparing but strong run of original singles from the duo.

The weekend is over, but have no fear, we think we might have the song you need to get you through the day. Campana & Manteloupe have dropped a new song called “Beyond the Clouds” that has us absolutely ready to conquer anything and will surely have you feeling the same way as well.

Featuring help from MistaDC and Paris Alexa, the track is a part of Campana & COSMOS: Moonshine album that will be out tomorrow. 

Check out the track below.

It’s rainy here in the city of Los Angeles, where me and a couple other writers reside. It’s made the city feel bleak and dark, but luckily we’ve got some great tunes coming our way that’s saving us from the pains of this week.

Geoffro is most famous for his work with Flume, which has already gotten him nominated for a Grammy, but he’s ready to start making a bigger name for himself within the public eye. The Cleveland-native is vulnerable to the audience in his new track “Quicksand,” and his incredibly intricate production and stunning lyrics make this easily one of the best thing we’ve heard this week.

On the track, he notes:

“This song has a couple themes inspired by a relationship, but also seems to reflect the weird times we’re going through in the world today. I got to work writing this song immediately after my first session with Flume”

Morgan St. Jean is a LA based singer who’s been carving her name in the R&B music scene. “Out of Love” and “Reckless” showcase her stunning vocals and lyrical prowess, and with the year slowly ending before our eyes, she sat down to tell us her favorite music.

Listen and read her explanations below!

My taste in music can be pretty eclectic so for this playlist I tried to separate it into two distinct parts. The first half consists of classic heartbreaking ballads from some of my all time favorites. The second focuses on the artists that I’m listening to right now. It’s a little more modern than the first half. Hope you enjoy xx

Fast Car – This is one of my all time favorite songs. I think it is the epitome of good story telling.

I Can’t Make You Love Me – This is my favorite song in the world to sing and has been for many years. I love the Bonnie Raitt version but Bon Iver has such unique and gorgeous take as well.

If I Ain’t Got You – If I had to pick one artist to always put at the top of my list it would be Alicia Keys. She is so honest and raw and powerful and I love her so much.

When We Were Young – I think of Adele as the perfect combination of timeless and modern. She has taken classically great singing and great story-telling and made it work for today’s Top 40.

I Will Always Love You – I think all singers are obsessed with this song. Not much to even say about it because it’s so amazing.

Let It Go – I love how simple and honest this song is. I was really moved the first time I heard it and it has become one of my all time favorite sad down songs.

Gone – I cried the first time I heard this song which pretty much says it all. Also, I saw Lianne La Havas live and it made me love her even more even though I didn’t think that was possible.

Mourning Doves – I think this song is so beautifully sung and it incorporates some really tasteful, cool production. It’s hooky and sad at the same time and I dig that.

Coffee – I saw Miguel live recently and it changed my life. Since then I have not been able to stop listening to this song. I am obsessed.

Bourbon – Clearly I have a thing with drinks but Gallant’s talent is mind-blowing to me and I freaked out the first time I heard the line “Angels say trust the detox but I’m shaking I need it like bourbon in my coffee cup.” So great.

Coastal has been growing his name in the 2016 music climate, and with that, the talented artist is ready to close out the year with a bang and dive into the next year. The producer and artist has given us a playlist of his favorite tracks, which explore everyone from Daedelus, JATO, Zuma., and more!
