“Silver” by Bonobo

•February 10, 2015 • Leave a Comment

One of the lesser known Bonobo tracks, which I have just recently heard for the first time. I was carried away by the simple and short keyboard melody that ties the rest of the track together. Accompanied by a groovy bassline, a jazzy sax, and some synths.

Buy on iTunes ($1.29).

“Speak In Colours (ft. Shuffling Strangefoot & Shaw)” by DeeB

A relaxed, laid-back tune with a heavy base (so definitely don’t listen with crappy earbuds) and some great samples here and there to keep it interactive.

Buy in Bandcamp widget (£0.79).

“4/17/1975″ by Rob Viktum

Another new favorite of mine. A deep beat with some paradisaical electric guitar picking.

Buy on Bandcamp ($1 or more; link via Bandcamp widget).

“Soulful East Coast” by Sound Scientists

This groovy, jazzy track came straight out of a music recommendation engine, so no great story there. It’s been a while since I’ve spent the time to share some great music with you all, but this one was too good to pass up on posting. Plus, it’s free!

“Cool Party” by Groundislava

Similar to XXYYXX and Shlohmo, Groundislava’s most popular track is a combination of many trippy sounds. Alternating between pieces dominated by a heavy bass and a diverse, choppy melody, this track might not be your afternoon chillax tune but it definitely sparks my curiosity and interest.

Buy on iTunes ($0.99).

“Good Morning Rain” by Al’Tarba

•October 28, 2014 • Leave a Comment

A bad-ass track by famed French hip-hop/trip-hop artist Al’Tarba. Very catchy samples and, on a side note, a great video, which you don’t see too often in this niche genre. I also recommend “Dusty Signal”, a more unsettling tune but all the more powerful. That track has a great video too.

Buy on iTunes ($0.99).

“Parade” by Cyesm

•October 24, 2014 • Leave a Comment

A heavy tune dominated by crisp drums, a somber cello, and a noisy electric guitar, brought into balance with well-timed highs and lows.

Buy on iTunes ($0.99).
