Derek's Theme
by Davide Piras
(1 play) | (0 fans)

This super limited 12" from Davide Piras is a must for lovers of gritty, throwback electro. It's not that the music is old school, just that it has the same fizzing textures, visceral energy and hardware aesthetic that makes so much older material so revered. Crafted in Italy with a real sense of purpose, it features basement tracks with bumping drums and mechanical rhythms. Glistening pads add the essential sci-fi element and the syncopated kicks will make you jerk your body endlessly. This is the sound of space, but not as we know it. https://www.juno.co.uk/artists/Davide+Piras/

Psycho
by Jessica Winter & S-Type
(4 plays) | (0 fans)

Support the artist here: https://jessicawinter.bandcamp.com/ Jessica Winter sits outside genre, scene or group, defined not by sound but by song. Much of her childhood was spent in isolation, looking out of the window from her hospital bed, from which her vivid imagination grew into a universe. Jessica's inspiration is drawn from robust daily experience and traverses sounds from the 80s, trap, indie, chanteuse and unadulterated pop. Credit for cello and violins go to Gamaliel Traynor, and director Prosper Unger Hamilton for the video: https://youtu.be/qS4dpdvTdOg

Hiç Mutlu Olmam Daha İyi
by Lalalar
(4 plays) | (0 fans)

Istanbul’s Lalalar remind you of your favorite 80’s cult show theme, and simultaneously sound like a delightful dumpster dive of spaghetti western-psychedelics, Anatolian funk, sampling and hazy electronics. The one constant: Lalalar is the type of band you want to move to with abandon. https://lalalar.bandcamp.com/

Xango
by Bernardo Pinheiro
(1 play) | (0 fans)

The 11th Barefoot beats is another hugely effective disco 12" with two well purposed cuts. JKriv & Dicky Trisco link up first for 'Mae Do Mar,' a tune that has you dreaming of warmer climes, sandy beaches and sunny skies. It's an airy cut with a tropical percussive line, hints of Latin flair and breezy vocals. https://www.juno.co.uk/artists/Bernardo+Pinheiro/

Lightning Bolts
by Deep Sea Diver
(20 plays) | (0 fans)

Jessica Dobson told us in October that this pressure and a lot of struggles with mental health was the reason there was such a big gap between this album and the last. We at KEXP have championed Deep Sea Diver and this album, Impossible Weight, because it is incredible. As is the band. As is Jessica Dobson. Every track feels personal and new and a great accompaniment to this year. Impossible Weight is YOUR top voted album of 2020 Drummer/husband Peter Mansen plays a key role in DSD’s sound. His beats open “People Come People Go” (“Everything falls apart and that’s OK”) and “Wishing,” setting the tone, vibe and rhythm for these songs. The percussion is crisp, clear and prominent in the mix which makes him a major contributor to the album’s overall success. It’s also his schlocky synth drums, straight out of the disco 70s, on “Lightning Bolts” that provide a sheen later enhanced by the rest of the band on the collection’s most ear-worm worthy moment. It’s frisky, fun and a logical future single. https://americansongwriter.com/jessica-dobson-balances-depression-and-an-uncertain-world-in-deep-sea-divers-impossible-weight/

Let Me Ride
by Dr. Dre
(24 plays) | (0 fans)

Rapper Dr. Dre has been hospitalized with a brain aneurysm. Sources says he was rushed by ambulance to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday and remains under intensive care. Doctors are doing tests on the 55 year-old music mogul to determine what is causing the bleeding on his brain. "Let Me Ride" is a 1993 single by rapper and producer Dr. Dre, and the third single from his debut studio album, The Chronic. It experienced moderate success on the charts, until it became a massive hit when Dre won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance for the song during the Grammy Awards of 1994. The chorus is sung by Ruben and Jewell, and Snoop Dogg (then known as Snoop Doggy Dogg) raps the line "Rollin' in my 6-4" and appears in some background vocals. The chorus involves both a sample and an interpolation of the chorus of the 1976 Parliament song "Mothership Connection (Star Child)," which itself quotes the spiritual, "Swing Down Sweet Chariot." It also samples James Brown's "Funky Drummer" and Bill Withers's 1973 single "Kissing My Love." The song makes a reference to popular hard rock band Aerosmith in the lyric, "And no, this ain't Aerosmith!" https://bit.ly/3inetSF

"On his new album, the verbose rapper’s fascination with creatures widens into a cosmology, resulting in the most joyous album he’s ever made." https://bit.ly/2UuJCdI https://aesoprock.com/
