Download: Sage Caswell "Street Lite"

First Listen

Budding Los Angeles producer Sage Caswell—who we deemed, alongside his frequent production partner Cromie, an up-and-coming artist to watch earlier this year—released a new EP this week via French outpost Decabaret. Though it doesn't appear on Caswell's new Tribute 2 CC Archer EP, "Street Lite" nonetheless proves a fine showcase of the dense and rugged brand of house the SoCal producer is fond of crafting. Built around a tough shuffle, the seven-minute tune weaves an unhurried path through hiss-lined percussion and dusty chord stabs, digging deeper with each passing bar. After giving "Street Lite" a spin below, those interested in hearing clips of Sage Caswell's Tribute 2 CC Archer EP can do so after the jump.  Read more »

Now, the erstwhile trio has reformed as a duo, and come out of hiding to deliver its latest transmission, a brand-new mix which just so happens to feature LV's impending new single for Keysound.

SOPHIE to Embark on North American Tour

SOPHIE seemingly popped up out of nowhere in 2013, but that didn't stop his delightfully weird "Bipp" from becoming one of last year's most unique and celebrated tunes. (XLR8R actually named it the year's top track and also listed SOPHIE amongst 2013's Best New Artists.) Despite all the accolades, the UK producer has managed to keep his identity under wraps, even as the volume of his live shows continues to steadily increase. Next month, the show will be touring North America for the first time. Read more »
