JVLY and Chester Watson deliver an effortlessly alluring dream-pop, hip hop leaning piece of Monday afternoon ear candy. After connecting on the internet, the two feed off of each others’ vibe to create a flawless, chilled out collaboration, “Namek.” The track itself is about connecting with someone on a genuine level, and what these two have created is a soundtrack that paints a vivid picture of that story.

Stuttgart, Germany based bedroom producer Mi Ka, curates a chilled out lo fi mix for your Friday afternoon, in tandem with the release of his latest single “Sunray,” to succeed the release of his studious leaning single “Seaside.”

It’s been too long since we’ve heard from our man, Xander Milne… he was a staple around the DB office just a year ago but we lost touch. Well, fear not because the man is back and he comes baring gifts!

First up, we get a bit of a curve ball, a downbeat EP with three, exceptionally head-nod-able, boom-bap styled tunes. The “Message Home EP” sees Milne channel some Dam-Funk-esque electro-boogie on the title cut while he blesses the mic with some deep rhymes on “Rugged Child.” Closing cut, “Beyond The Stars,” is a bittersweet ode to perseverance and staying the course, no matter what obstacles may stray you… if I had to guess, I’d assume we’d have to thank the one and only Bald Head Slick aka Guru for the words of wisdom and encouragement. #rip

Shout out to MARGAUX SOLAND for the collaborative artwork!

As an added bonus, Mr. Milne keeps all the house heads happy with his latest joint, “Troubles feat. Vera Hall.” This uptempo, deep-house cut utilizes the instantly recognizable hook popularized by Moby in his timeless classic, “Natural Blues.” Here, we get and irresistible revision that features a bouncy, 808 bass line and some slick, filtered chord stabs. Proper dance floor biznezz on this one…. show the man some love for all of his generosity!
