Download: Brett "Chalon (Bam Spacey's Sad Summer of '89 Mix)"

First Listen

An unhurried, sun-soaked pop track in its original form, Brett's "Chalon" serves as the lead track to the Stateside outfit's self-titled debut LP, which appeared earlier this year via the ever-growing Cascine label (an imprint who also welcomed the likes of Essáy and Lemonade to its roster in 2014). Now in the hands of Malmö, Sweden-based producer Bam Spacey—whose debut LP, 1998, arrives next month via Brooklyn's Ceremony outpost—"Chalon" is reshaped into a more heavenly affair, one led by a melody worthy of the remix's 1989 time stamp and further bathed in gradually evolving layers of airy synths.

Download: Tallesen "Court Sight"

First Listen
Label: Software

Set to arrive early next month, the debut LP from East Coast producer Cayman Johnson (a.k.a. Tallesen) will offer 12 original productions along with a handful of bonus cuts, including "Court Sight," which has been offered for download here. Built on the back of a series of somewhat lopsided rhythms, "Court Sight" eventually culminates into a cluster of washy synths, with no lead emerging, but rather a bubbling soundscape culminating from Johnson's combination of sci-fi tones. The rest of Tallesen's Stills Lit Through LP will see its release on October 6 via Brooklyn's Software label.
