Podcast 369: Gunnar Haslam

Over the past year or so, Gunnar Haslam has quietly become one of those artists whose name is seemingly everywhere. In 2014 alone, the New York producer has issued releases on esteemed imprints like Argot, Delsin, and Mister Saturday Night, and this week, he's releasing his second full-length for L.I.E.S., Mirrors and Copulation. (Just FYI, the album is currently streaming in full exclusively on XLR8R.) In conjunction with this wave of activity, we figured that now would be a good time for Haslam to put together an exclusive mix for our weekly podcast series. Read more »

Download: Tonik Ensemble "Until We Meet Again (Applescal Remix)"

Label: Atomnation

The Tonik Ensemble is in fact the brainchild of Anton Kaldal Ágústsson, an Icelandic producer and musician who enlists a number of collaborators to aid him in seeing through the completion of his hybrid electronic compositions. Today, Ágústsson and company's latest release has arrived via the Atomnation imprint, who has also invited a number of producers, including label head Applescal, to rework the Tonik Ensemble's new single, "Until We Meet Again." A spacious, moody endeavor in its original form, Applescal anchors the track's billowing textures with the thud of a kick drum and light layers of percussion, while also generously manipulating and rearranging the tune's vocals and placing the focus of the rework on a series of tenderly melodic synthlines. Applescal's remix of "Until We Meet Again" can be downloaded below, and the rest of the Tonik Ensemble's new single can be streamed after the jump.  Read more »

Download: Real Cosby "What It Feels"

First Listen
Label: Shoeboxx

Based in Denver, Colorado, the beat-focused Shoeboxx label plans to cap off its 2014 run with VOL.TWO, the second edition in the imprint's compilation series. Set to incorporate tracks from Monster Rally, A Sol Mechanic, Metome, Tapes, and many more, the label has passed along Real Cosby's contribution to the effort to serve as our first taste. Led by a slinking string of arpeggio melodies, the production utilizes a sharp series of slightly stuttered kicks, snares, and precisely tuned bits of percussion which cut through layers of warm, swelling chords, re-pitched vocals, and side-chained ambience. Real Cosby's "What It Feels" track can be downloaded below, while the full 27-track VOL.TWO compilation will be available as a free download on November 25.
