Our old comrade Nick Catchdubs (yeah, one of the founders of NYC label Fool’s Gold Records and all around amazing fella) recently released his single “UFO Style”, and it’s an immediately hypnotizing array of cut-up beats, chopped vocals and buzzing synths.

“I love old records but have no interest in making retro songs. I’m energized by the spirit of New York you hear in Malcolm McLaren’s “Duck Rock” and Jive Ryhythm Trax, comic books and rave flyers, late night radio tapes and shitty drum machines… to Xerox that feeling would be boring. But putting my own spin on those inspirations is crazy exciting! ‘UFO Style’ is me wondering what it would sound like if The Orb made music for subway dancers. Please play it on a good system.”

Nashville based artist R.LUM.R has started gearing up for the summer festival season where he’ll perform at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Hangout Festival by dropping brand new track “Emotion” which was done in collaboration with Los Angeles production duo Vindata. Expect a smooth slice of R&B with a ridiculous beat.

UK duo Disclosure returns with brand-new single “Ultimatum” for the summer featuring Malian musician, Fatoumata Diawara.

“Sorry it’s been a while – we have been missing you all immensely, so we wanted to share with you something we’ve been working on now the sun is shining and the trees are green. A few months ago, we stumbled across an amazing female vocalist named Fatoumata Diawara. While digging through her discography we discovered this beautiful sample and started messing around, having fun and experimenting with it. The result is our new song, ‘Ultimatum’.”

Malmö based producer The Land Below lends his magic touch to the track “Someone To Save Me” by New York-based artist I AM SNOW ANGEL (AKA Julie Kathryn, who has been featured in the Huffington Post, Indie Shuffle, Magnetic Mag, Creem Magazine, Refinery 29, All Things Go etc.).
I AM SNOW ANGEL is a sound designer for Ableton, an up and coming producer, and one of the founders of Female Frequency. Later this year she’ll release her concept album “MOTHERSHIP”, which was recorded in wintery isolation in a cabin deep in the woods of upstate NY.

“Someone To Save Me” is released tomorrow Friday May 18th and it’s an exquisite piece of sweeping electronica where I Am Snow Angel’s vocals are utilized in a soothing and beautiful way.

“I love Erik’s production style. The track he originally sent me was very synth-y and 80’s inspired. I envisioned a futuristic nighttime landscape. I imagined myself in that space as I wrote. When he sent me back our mix, he had opened up the production quite a bit and the whole song suddenly felt even more emotional and honest.” – I AM SNOW ANGEL

“When I first sent the track to Julie for her to write vocals, it didn’t sound anywhere close to what it now does. Because when I heard what she had recorded, I felt I needed to rewrite the whole song and put her voice at the center of it. What came out was another song entirely, one much better, and one that puts Julie’s voice in focus. This is kind of like the remix of a track that never was.” – The Land Below
