Cherushii is the handle of San Francisco producer Chelsea Faith, a budding talent whose taste for jacking house rhythms and hardware constructions landed her an EP on 100% Silk late last year. Now, with a string of West Coast tour dates ahead of her (alongside fellow Silk affiliate Golden Donna), Faith has dropped off "No Doubt in My Mind," a soul-streaked expedition indebted to the Chicago house tradition, and one which finds ample room to unroll a number of gliding synth leads and R&B vocal chops across its eight-minute run. "No Doubt in My Mind" can be downloaded in full below (the track is also set to appear on a forthcoming, as-yet-untitled EP), while Cherushii's upcoming West Coast tour dates can be peeped after the jump.

As Leaks, young Melbourne producer/vocalist Thomas Guida melds the influence of groups like Mount Kimbie and Maribou State with his own subdued take on soulful pop. "Underthought" is Guida's latest effort, the lead single to an as-yet-untitled EP set to drop via the Zero Through Nine imprint in November. Here, the artist begins by laying reticent vocals atop a a series of liquid tones and sparse, but jittery rhythms. It is after Guida's vocals fade away though that his talent as a beatmaker truly shine through, as "Underthought" pieces together an infectious melody of re-pitched vocals which bounce atop the track's lopsided skip.
