Download: Mark Wundercastle "AC"

First Listen
Label: 1080p

New Zealand-reared, now Melbourne, Australia-based producer Mark Wundercastle is next up on the fast-growing—and pleasantly unpredictable—1080p label. Pulled from his upcoming Cell EP is "AC," a seven-minute jaunt across percussive drum-machine patterns, where tuned kicks meet sweeping synth chords and airy, cyclical melodies. From this simple combination of components, Wundercastle is able to build a hypnotic production, one which frequently relies on the entrancing pulse of its drum programming to lull the listener further into its sonic world. In addition to "AC," Wundercastle's Cell EP promises to offer six more "extremely heavy tracks tinged by early '00s futurist vibes" when it officially drops in both cassette and digital form on n August 19.

Download: Korma "Sky Hook"

First Listen

Early next month, Seattle producer Korma will drop the four-track Skyline EP as part of Car Crash Set's Ice Rink release series. Set to close out the forthcoming effort is "Sky Hook," a bass-rooted production which comes packed with industrial percussion. Running just over four-minutes, Korma's track aligns an ever-growing series of dark machine hits with a barrage of otherworldly FX, together forming tight rhythms that wrap around the tune's steely atmosphere. Korma's Skyline EP is set to land on September 2, which is also the date his Springblade/ Chain 2.0 EP is scheduled to drop, both via the DC-based Car Crash Set imprint.
