After multiplying Hip-Hop experiments under the name of Soryo Madmonk, Theodore returns to his first love electronics in “STIWF!”. Fresh new sounds mixed with some samples, you´ll be asked to “bring that shit” and “feel the Funk, now!” you´ll have no choice because the beat will stand you back against the wall and you´ll have no choice to surrender.
Running to the dark like I’m a light I need the contrast to be satisfied-wipe out-
wanna touch the air with my tongue
See I’m wasting away tasting to fail
Mind like a landscape easy to read but I got enough to keep me
Hiding away, hiding away, hiding away
After the release of their singles, ‘Places,’ ‘Miles Davis’ and ‘Clouds,’ FYE & FENNEK now release ‘Dark Lights’– another electronic-pop track with the essence of summer in Berlin from their debut album Separate Together.
Sings front woman FYE before breaking into chorus. The sound of ‘Dark Lights’ is reminiscent of Berlin summer nights, chasing youth and a sense of freedom, feeling eager to exchange innocence for excitement. It releases alongside their debut album, ‘Separate Together.’ Their first release, ‘Places,’ accumulated nearly 400k plays on Spotify in less than a month after release and landed several New Music Fridays across Europe along with Indie Radar in Germany. ‘Clouds’ reached #1 in Hypemachine relevancy only two weeks after release. Their European album release caught them attention from Italian Billboard magazine who offered raving reviews of the album and a week of social media support. The Berlin based duo will venture off next as support for the LUI HILL European tour in October.
Fragments is a brilliant mixtape by ICMB. With his latest release on “The Jazz Hop” he lives up to its name because the Tape is filled with some high class songs including Jazz vibes, some cool smooth Hip Hop- elements and piano accompaniment. This is the Perfect Mixtape to do some bad work you don´t like to do.
Daydreams is a new compilation of ambient chill sounds and slow- mo sampled beats. Hear the sounds and forget your daily struggle. Dive deeply in an ocean of sins, escape from earth and observe your surroundings beyond.
Cupidon did another magnifique edit of Vulpeck’s ‘Back Pocket’ from 2015. And yes – they just polished it up to bring it on the dancefloor. A bit more tempo and future beats but still keepin the soul in it. I like mucho :) Especially today when most releases only conform to any streaming corsetts and attest the overall cultural oatmeal I am bored to death by now. This one is different and an instant refresher to your senses. Shoyu and Golow, the handsome guys behind the Duo ‘Cupidon’, don’t just hack some beats into their laptops and you can feel by the intuitive flow of their tracks that these guys play actual music on their turntables for actual real people in real clubs on weekends. Like their very first official release ‘Be the One’ that climbed up Spotify USA’s & Canada’s Viral Chart as a total newcomer in 2017 this Edit is for the Kaytranada lovers out there. It reminds me of some sweet summer dj sessions I had with our mutual friend Marki and envision him banging his head while me shaking the hips. Add it to your warm up DJ Set or your ‘dancing in the kitchen’ playlist – it’s tested succesfully everyone will start dancing by this one ;)
