Enticing, fascinating, and handsome to boot, BLVTH returns with a striking framework of thunderous sounds via his latest single, “Rigid.” The German-based babe is relatively new to the professional music scene, yet far from novice. His unique sound is distinguished, sharp, resounding. “Rigid” is a smokestack of polyrhythmic soundscapes. Industrial and chromatic, BLVTH channels the unfamiliar sounds of post apocalyptic techno, later diving into a world of echoing, electro-R&B. Reverberating vocals oscillate moments of controlled chaos, giving rise to a zealous yet chilling energy. Explore this labyrinth of sounds, and watch this space for more from BLVTH.

Philanthropist, creator, designer, rapper, producer- these are a mere facet of the long list of terms one could call Mod Sun. A household name in dance music, hip hop, and R&B, Mod Sun shows no signs of slowing down. His latest release, “Burning Up,” released via Filthy Fangs is a robust r&b masterpiece. Founded Mod Sun’s girlfriend, former Disney star turned “it girl,” Filthy Fangs is the brain child of the eccentric Bella Thorne. Drawing influence from contemporary hip-hop and fusing it with a unique take on electro-pop this track is nothing short of dynamic. Both flamboyant and poetic, Mod Sun is unapologetically himself in “Burning Up.” The rapper/ producer also just announced his nation-wide fall tour, and you can get your tickets here. Stay tuned for more from Filthy Fangs, and this modern day renaissance man.

From the first 10 seconds of URCHN’s debut single “Composure” I was instantly hooked. Soft muted guitar plucks that drive with a sense of urgency. A nervous percussive shaker sound. A brief flutter that reminds me of a baby dinosaur. My early impression was that I was listening to something I hadn’t quite heard before, and it only gets better as the song continues. Making his debut via Casablanca Sunset, URCHN is the solo project of the Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter and producer Max Greenhalgh. Max is also notably recognized for his work as the front man in the indie pop act Inspired & The Sleep amongst other projects and musical outlets. Cinematic in feel, with thought-provoking lyrics sung in a haunting half-falsetto, URCHN quickly weaves a web of contemplative discomfort on “Composure”. The thoughtful blend of organic and electronic sonic elements, syncopated rhythms, and vocal affectation come together to make this track one of the most compelling debuts of 2018 thus far.

Only in 2018 can a mannequin have 20K Twitter followers and remix a future pop song into a dance floor rave-ready beat. Yes this is a blog post about a FRND remix done by a mannequin (“Charlotte” from the world of creepy YouTube phenomenon Poppy). Only in the age of Gen Z is it acceptable for computer-generated voice to be incorporated into music. I’m not talking about Styx singing about Mr. Roboto or Soulwax using a MicroKORG, Charlotte is all computer. Or is Poppy speaking for her through a computer? The mystery of the internet, my friends. All things considered, this remix does what most great remixes generally do: twists the original track on its head in a unique and refreshing way that makes you want to dance. Nice job, Charlotte. Not half bad for a mannequin.

Celebrating the echoing soundscapes of indie electronic music, Berkeley-based producer Emmit Fenn returns in an R&B-esque fashion with his latest drop, “Without You” featuring Drew Love. Defined by a slackened cadence and seductive lyricism, the duo showcases a deep sense of synchronicity. Revered not only for his mellow take on dance music, Emmit’s poetic vocals simultaneously stand as a pillar in his signature aesthetic. “Without You” is as tranquil as it is prolific. The silvery outline pays tribute to music that reaches far beyond the influence of everyday electronic production. The echoing lyricism coincides like a yin and yang with the production- giving rise to each other as they aesthetically interrelate. Polished and fluid, “Without You” stands at the apex of indie-R&B. Emmit, Drew, we're listening.

This organic framework of sonorous sounds is saturated with a whispering mantra, proving his enchantment is set to be long-lasting. Join us on this cloud, as we lose ourselves in the trance-like labyrinth that is the prodigal mind of Alex Lustig.
