Uone @ Boom Festival 2016

Merging the trashy freestyle attitude of a DJ Koze with the clubby hypnotism of a D-Nox, the sets of Uone are truly next level shit – and that’s precisely what the Aussie delivered at Boom’s Alchemy Circle this year.

Oldtwig – Seaside (Part 1)

Dope beats for sophisticated music lovers: Two years after the release of his outstanding Through Hills album, Oldtwig is back and presents the exquisite first part of his Seaside series. The rich, emotional sounds of a piano and a trombone lead the listeners through deep, slightly melancholic senarios with a very cinematic vibe. Great to…

Fabel – The SlowCooker Sessions Vol. 2

Fábel delivers his second SlowCooker Session and again it ticks all the boxes for a really good DJ mix. Compared to the first part this one is somewhat heavier on the beats, the vibe feels more stimulating, towards the end the groove could clearly be described as danceable. However, just like SlowCooker Session Vol.1 it…

Fábel – SlowCooker Sessions

Multi-insturmentalist Fábel delivers a wonderfully smooth blend of deep and dope tunes, including quite some tracks and edits by the Spanish producer himself. Shifting between Trip Hop, Downbeat, Electronica and Instrumental Hip Hop, there’s an extremely mellow and jazzy vibe to this mix.

The Making of Guts “Hip Hop After All”

I’ve been an avid fan of Guts for quite some years now. While I tend to lose interest in the work of most producers after some time, the French beatmaker is among the few who just keep up a level of quality and innovation that gets me stoked again and again and again. However, when…

However, the musical history of George Evelyn aka DJ E.A.S.E goes back even further, and this documentary tells about it. Interesting…

Colonna – Ode To The Moon

Give us this day our daily dopeness: Colonna released the counterpart for his great Ode To The Sun album from 2012, titled Ode To The Moon. It’s actually more of an extension than a counterpart, as this work provides another dose of excellent Dope Beats. Incredibly enough, it’s available for free download.

Oldtwig – Through Hills

A smooth blend of Trip Hop beats, Lounge sounds, and dramatic film music: That’s Through Hills, the first album by Oldtwig. The organic harmony of this conceptual work clearly reflects that the producer was inspired by and pays homage to the forest. Shifting from moments of melancholy to uplifting easiness, the mood of Through Hills…

Beach Diggin’ Vol. 2 by Guts & Mambo

However, knowing the consistent quality of Guts I am pretty sure that this is gonna be another supreme selection of ultra-mellow tunes for all lovers of Pura Vida sound. The vinyl will hit stores…
