Al Haca has gone completely sci-fi on the world. "Banana Split" sees the production team tackling synth-parameterss like analog brain surgeons. If aliens threw a BBQ that M.I.A. was attending, this track would most certainly accompany dessert.
Using heavily layered synth chords, IDM drums, and soft, ethereal vocals, Printer's four members ensure that "Allright" sidesteps a downtempo pigeonhole and continues the band's endeavors to unearth the experimental sides of rock.
Taken from the EP of the same name, Datarock’s latest single is the best thing to happen to disco since The Rapture's "House Of Jealous Lovers." These Norwegian kings of the dancefloor must have been born with a 4/4 chip implanted in their brains.
Straight from B-Boy central comes Dnae Beats. After producing tracks for Gift Of Gab, Pigeon John, and San Quinn this San Francisco-based hip-hop head has bestowed "Ganjamon" to the world. Fans of grass and soulful underground beats now have an anthem.
