Download: Slam Skillet "Keratin"

First Listen
Label: Ounce.

NYC producer Slam Skillet first appeared on our radar late last month, when the budding talent offered up his club-minded "Impala" production for free download. Now, Slam Skillet returns to XLR8R with "Keratin," a sci-fi cut from his upcoming Linear Motif EP (artwork above), which drops on July 28 via the Ounce. digital label. Bolstered by space-age percussion, "Keratin" offers a bevy of futuristic synth tones, which come lined with just a touch of funk, helping the tune find an intriguing balance between dancefloor readiness and adventurous sonic exploration.

Download: Aashton "I've Had Enough"

First Listen

Aashton is a burgeoning artist who has placed a number of quality tunes in our Downloads section in recent months. Now, the UK producer has elected to give away two tracks via a new digital EP, one of which is "I've Had Enough." Steeped in soulful chords, "I've Had Enough" is a sharp piece of low-swung club music which utilizes a good deal of playful percussion, tasteful vocal chops, juicy piano stabs, and a precise bassline during the course of its run. While this selection from Aashton's free EP can be download below, the tune's virtual flipside counterpart, "Status Ain't Crooked," can be heard after the jump.  Read more »
