Western Australia-based producer Loston burst onto the global electronic scene with unique sounding reworks of James Blake, London Grammar, and Banks, alongside a collaboration with Ta-ku called “No Reason” and then retreated into writing music instead. His new track “Disappear” which is his first release after the two-year hiatus and the first single off his upcoming six-track EP “Echoes” is a pulsating and huge sounding track.
“I feel like there is room in modern music for creative expression, rather than trying to work within the constraints of what works for â€˜Playlistsâ€™, or how it is going to play out at festivals. I began singing and sampling my own voice, using that as a starting point and building song structures or passages around it, intentionally ignoring any thoughts of the environment that it would be consumed in by the listener. Walk away, roll the dice, be different….What I was left with was a much more honest and real record, with no focus on a single.”
Today marks the release of a brand new track from Los Angeles rapper Jay Rock, “Kingâ€™s Dead” features Kendrick Lamar, Future and James Blake. The track is produced by Mike WiLL Made It/Teddy Walton and is taken off the Kendrick Lamar curated soundtrack for the movie Black Panther.
“Kingâ€™s Dead” is also the first official single from Jay Rockâ€™s upcoming album which will arrive this year as the follow-up to his 2015 album “90059”.
Another beautiful effort from Swiss outfit Monumental Men, this time they turn their attention to British crooner James Blake and turns “Modern Soul” into more of a dreamlike dancey house/pop jam with cosmic influences.
