Kabanjak – The Dooza Tapes Vol. 1

Kabanjak is back with bang. Today the German beatmaker dropped The Dooza Tapes Vol. 1, and they are oozing with his signature dopeness. The bass lines are so fat and heavy that they might ask you to book two contigious seats if you wanna listen to this album on the airplane. Dynamic live drums, Trap-ish…

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…

El Búho – Metrón Musik Mixtape 005

A steady flow of laid-back 4-4 beats leads through the main part of this new mix by El Búho, lending it a feeling of mellow dancability. There’s a lot of Latin American sounds in here, but there’s also a fair bit of World Music from other parts of this planet.

Beach Diggin’ Vol. 3

Guts news everyone: The third part of the Beach Diggin’ compilation series is about to be released on Heavenly Sweetness. Once again Guts & Mambo did a fantastic job in compiling what I would describe as the ultimate soundtrack for a tropical / subtropical lifestyle that is centred around large bodies of salt water. I…

ZZK Mixtape Vol. 19 – History of Colour

They’ve never met in person. Nevertheless they created a mesmerizing EP together – thanks to the internet. El Buho, an Englishman based in Amsterdam, and Barrio Lindo from Buenos Aires sent back and forth samples and audio tracks until they eventually finished History Of Colour, a 6-track EP that has just been released on ZZK…

Phaeleh – DJ Mix For Albion Collective

Albion Collective just published an interview with Phaeleh, plus an exclusive DJ mix by the Bristolian master of ultra-mellow Bass Music. It’s deep, it’s uplifting, it’s highly melodic, it’s full of seismic bass lines, it’s packed with dubs and unreleased tracks… it’s everything that makes Phaeleh a truly outstanding figure.

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.

N.O.W. Is The Time Documentary

It was 19 years ago when Nightmares On Wax dropped Smokers Delight, an album I can listen to again and again and again, a timeless masterpiece of laid-back music that is among my all-time favourites. 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…

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…
