Pulsating electronic beats with a push and pull bassline is the frame work set for singer Kuoko who reminds me of Lykke Li. The track has a well constructed build that keeps things interesting with flourishes of new elements like the electric guitar, woodwind and wood percussive instruments. The song talks about a new relationship that is all encompassing to the point of losing oneself and almost losing their own identity. Mollono.Bass resides in Germany and Kuoko is an artist, songwriter and music producer from Hamburg.
Grooving house number with a chilled laid back vibe. Per the artist, “A song born in isolation, where most planes are grounded, most cars parked and almost all people at home.” The vocals are a bit melancholy but that is right up my alley. The vocal melody is also what sold me on this track. Music P is a German Producer/Songwriter and DJ.
This track has such a cool vibe and groove to it. A bit ethereal but never loses it’s momentum by way of hypnotic drum beat. It’s a chilled House tune to be enjoyed many times over. For fans of Bonobo and Four Tet.
One of my favorite finds this year is Rey Pila. Think a cross between Sparks and The Presets with a splash of Interpol for good measure. Their latest release, ‘Let it Burn‘, which was produced by Dave Sitek (TV On the Radio), is my favorite track from them thus far. However Disciples IV is a very close second.
Rey Pila is a four-piece band from Mexico City. Rey Pila translates to ‘King Battery’.Here is a track from the Sparks: Here is a track from The Presets: Rey Pila: Rey Pila Disciples IV: Rey Pila – Anxious
This track grew on me the more I listened. It’s a slow burner minimal deep house number. The song has a nice ebb and flow from beginning to end. This track can be found on his upcoming ‘EP2’ which will be released on July 7th.
