Mo Kolours – Mo Kolours [HAND12014] Mo’s been around for a bit, releasing some great EPs on One Handed Music (home to other forward thinking artists like Paul White, Bullion). His eagerly anticipated LP couldn’t arrive at a better time— Spring is about to bloom and warmth re-enters the world. Threading influences of funk, dub/reggae,...

Brooklyn Bass 046: Aimes May 2014 Podcast

AIMES is the production moniker and musical alter ego of Alabama born, Brooklyn resident, Aman Ellis. His music is psychedelic at heart, provoking hints of new-wave, italo, and cosmic disco. Lush synths and washed out vocals juxtapose big kicks and silky bass lines. The self-dubbed “Space Pop” explores vast sonic territories, keeping a close affinity...

Seven Davis Jr. – P.A.R.T.Y. [APRON09] SDJr has been on a tear over the last year or so, giving away some goodies recently after releasing two EPs that quickly flew off shelves late last year. His latest EP on Funkineven’s Apron Records adds to his growing and impressive body of work, fusing elements of modern...
Golden Donna - II [SILK-064]

Golden Donna – II [SILK-064]

Golden Donna has offered up a wide range of music in the past few years. Gloaming Thirst is perfect horror film scoring, complete with maniacal synth spin-outs and intense drums, and releases like Pour Resnaís show a more introspective but equally exploratory side, leaving the kits aside in favor of synth-laden soundscapes. And with II, Donna again refocuses...

Brooklyn Bass 045: Velcro March 2014 Podcast

 Velcro is a LA-based house duo consisting of Kevin Ross and Enrique Martinez. The project was born in the summer of 2012, shortly after an introduction at a nightclub in Hollywood.

Pender Street Steppers – Openin Up / M Flight [PPU-056] Originally released on their Life in the Zone cassette on Mood Hut last year, Pender Street Steppers teams up with PPU (seriously, PPU and Mood Hut? Cannot go wrong with that combo of labels) to release these two gems on wax. Both sides contain beautiful...

After a short hiatus (moving always sucks with records), our semi weekly vinyl reviews are back! Without further adieu… Jay Daniel – Karmatic Equations EP [WOJD01] Jay’s Wild Oats debut dropped last week and it’s fantastic from start to finish. The first two sides offer up some great rolling pieces of detroit house. Subdued and...
Machine Girl - WLFGRL [DREDLP01]

Machine Girl – WLFGRL [DREDLP01]

  London’s Dred Collective has been putting out a broad spectrum of high-quality electronic music for about a year, and although they’ve paid close attention to UK beatsmiths, they haven’t been shy of New York-based producers. They’ve shared some of Koetry’s slow, bassy jams. They released Beatslave’s uptempo, masterfully-sampled Delirious Hermit Studies EP. And, of course,...
Thomas White - Killah [HYPR028]

Thomas White – Killah [HYPR028]

Hyperboloid has been holding down what they call “vaporbass” for quite some time. The look and feel of Thomas White‘s Killah EP immediately embodies this. The artwork, made by label boss Pixelord, carries many of the idiosyncrasies you’d find in vaporwave: an overtly photoshopped, bright, virtual-3D rendering of our world, all held within a frame...
Brooklyn Bass 044: Malandro February 2014 Podcast

Brooklyn Bass 044: Malandro February 2014 Podcast

MALANDRO: You will find him in seedy, pitch-black discotecas at night and on pristine, white beaches at sunrise. An unsolved mystery of tropical rhythm and pulsing synthesizers. A casual whirlwind of uncut ecstasy and effortless cool. A nocturnal master of dancefloor intrigue and international beats. MALANDRO: What secrets lie behind those sunglasses? Islands from Manhattan...

Kenny Dixon Jr. (aka Moodymann) : Moodymann

  Kenny Dixon (aka Moodymann) is back with his 4th full length as Dixon and 11th as Moodymann as a whole. He’s a major part of the detroit techno/deep house scene in case you’re unaware of him and his music. This full length is everything you’d expect for this legend. It’s deep, sexy, soulful, groove...
Tripletrain - Just For Decoration, Pts. 1 & 2

Tripletrain – Just For Decoration, Pts. 1 & 2

One of the biggest footwork releases of last year was DJ Rashad‘s full-length, Double Cup. Given the explosion of footwork through the internet and around the world, it was perfect timing on Rashad’s part to set a precedent for what a good footwork album should be. And with the help of Hyperdub, his voice was heard....
