New Kid on the Block: Vibin’ by Fluxkid

nikita-tikhomirov-samo-ps1

I guess this is what the Native Tongues would sound like if they were coming out today. Doesn’t this sound just like a solid classic De La Soul track? Love it! I honestly like this instrumental track a lot and it just throws up the question why todays rappers do not jump on tracks with this kind of vibe, it would give hip hop that much deserved push and i can just hear Joes Bada$$ going off on a track like Vibin’. Fine state of the art production with a bit over the top synths, that could be a bit toned down, but with the whole percussive part to back it up, it just rolls on and on and works somehow. So we salute 20y old Fluxkid from Berlin/Warsaw, the new kid on the block and we are really curious what kind of material he will come up with next!

The press release reads like this: “Vibin’is a cross-genre mixture of influences ranging from synth-pop to hiphop and future bass. Its very rhythmic, drum-driven composition opposed to smooth, soft and melodic synths creates a dynamic combination which fits both a dance floor and a more laid back context. This contrast between mellow verses and powerful chorus gives the track an extraordinary energy that will draw you deep into its warm, summer vibe. The mix of different elements and genres sounds like Mura Masa and Flume combined into one song that every fan of electronic music has been waiting for. You can easily lose yourself to the vibe of this track!” — I fully Agree!

So Much THIS! Cupidon – Be The One (feat. Tierra)

karina-zajac-screen-shot-2016-07-26-at-5-32-18-pm

Be. the. One.

Tired of soul music yet? One of our very own boys, Shoyu, and his partner Golow, who is a super nice & talented fellow, laid down this soulfull gem of track, completely ignoring the standard arrangement patterns of today and going more for an intuitive flow of the prevailing vibe, beautifully laid down by the minimalist instrumentation and Tierras super sexy vocals. So if you think Kaytranada is the shiat, this will surely please you, and if you liked soulful loft music of the mid to late 80s, which has survived up until today through each new generation transporting the vibe and the originals in their dj sets and productions —> this one is most def for you. And since this is their very first effort and they have just set up their socials last Thursday, while they were already trending for a full week on Spotify USA’s & Canada’s Viral Chart and many more playlists, i am super curious to see where the path will lead these two young guns. Welcome gents, you are much appreciated in the world of music! Just the way i like my spicy cereal!

Quality music for quality moments.
