FaltyDL -“Some Jazz Shit” New York producer FaltyDL has always veered towards jazz influenced, spacey atmospheres in his productions, so the straightforward, soulful sound that makes up his latest track “Some Jazz Shit” feel like a natural progression of the artists typically contemplative, sometimes melancholic style. With sprawling percussion, melodic keys and an elegant string arrangement, the track stretches out to just over six minutes of smooth, atmospheric beats reminiscent of the deep house orchestrations of London’s Floating Points. Listen below.
Soldiers of Twilight – “Believe” (PBR Streetgang Remix) UK house duo PBR Streetgang’s latest remix of Soldiers of Twilight’s “Believe” appears on the forthcoming “Content” via 2020 vision recordings. The cut features a thick bass groove and sultry vocal sample that sets up a dark disco vibe and an overall smooth, nostalgic feel. Listen below.
Matrixxman – “The Spell” Ghostly International affiliate and rising techno producer Matrixxman has been responsible for some of the more raucous, percussion-driven tracks this year. Following up the fantastic Amulet EP released on Ghostly earlier this year, the San-Francisco based producer just dropped his latest EP, The Spell, for Kraftek earlier this week. The title track is a clean, straightforward techno cut with industrial textures and a strongly resonating bass line that builds on the otherworldly sound the artist has developed to this point.
Midland – “Before We Leave” London producer Midland’s tracks have always been awe-inspiring, hypnotic, and hard to fairly categorize, so it comes as no surprise that his latest effort for UK imprint Phonica White, “Before We Leave” is a stunning, emotionally charged piece of dance music. Countering a complex rhythm that includes a clever double-clap with lush, atmospheric strings, the track manages to pull the absolute most out of its’ minimal elements. Look for the track to be released on vinyl later this month. Pre-order available here.
