An all-instrumental hour…
A beat-heavy mixtape recorded back in 2009. Mr. Scruff, TM Juke, Thievery Corporation, Gramatik, the scene outside of Medellin, and all that jazz.
Embedding poetry into immersive music, We Come From The Sun is a quite a fascinating project and well-worth listening into. Here musical allrounder Joe Acheson, the mastermind behind The Hidden Orchestra, takes it to yet another level by transforming the album into one of his masterful studio mixes. “A series of imagined collaborations including Johnny…

Think of Christmas and all the traditions that come with it what you will, but the annual end-of-year mixtapes by neoclassic virtuoso Nils Frahm are a damn good reason to get all festive about the season. Turn up the stereo, turn off all the other stuff that didn’t exist when many of these tunes were…
Seventy-three minutes of All-Aussie goodness. Well, kinda. Jon Jones recorded a mixtape using exclusively tracks from Australian record labels. “It includes a blend of ambient, downtempo, trance-like sounds with a quirky flavour,” the young producer describes his selection. There’s more: “The mix and the songs within it are inspired by the traditional landowners of Australia,…

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…
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.
