Jamie Prado – Hit’em Off

jamieprado

Get familiar with the warmly-lit spacey-interstellar sunny-sensed synth-chord-heavy indie dance vibe of LA producer Jamie Prado on his slow-building beat-driven cosmic-ambient new one “Hit Em Off” which we think excels for its smoldering bass-line undercurrent and simple syrupy-mesh of hip-hop soul-touched male-female vocals.

We’re totally feeling the slow-cadence vocals and trippy-kid vibe of Atlanta-based hip-hop artist Mondaii on his track “Waffle House Dreams” which we are drawn to for Mondaii’s fresh spin on a Kendrick Lamar-school sense-of-vocal-style. Reviewed by Erin Shay.

Zone out to the sweet-natured chipper-vibe guitar-led tropical-consistency pop-sensibilities of London indie foursome Flyte on their lyrically-complex new one dubbed “Eloise” which (especially in the vocals) reminds us of a modern variant on an early Talking Heads vibe. Reviewed by Erin Shay.

A new artist to B3 called Tamper turn out an outstanding tepid-paced down-tempo-cover of Santigold’s new classic “Disparate Youth” which we especially like for its brightly-simmering softly-building stretched-out synth-inspired temperament and gorgeous slowly-unthawing mesh of electro and dub-tinged accents.

Moosh & Twist – Way Too Long

mooshandtwist

Philly duo Moosh and Twist just dropped new single “Way Too Long” and its dope. The track comes off like two songs in one with a switch up in the production towards the middle; the beat itself is otherworldly mashing up varying sounds that come together in a truly unique way. The next level is in reach for this hip-hop duo; just wait. Reviewed by Jake Goldstein

Techno-leaning Soundcloud style-setter XLR8R scintillates our ears with yet another brilliant drawn out bass-heavy masterpiece house-pick called “Loft Groove” which stands out for its artfully-robust multi-faceted deep-into-the-under-layers far-out mesh of beat-driven sounds and textures. The track, which we appreciate in full for its dancey funk-centric beats, sultry-heated-vibe bass-line groove and contrasting two-toned vocal accents, is the artful production of Birmingham house/techno/disco producer Adam Shelton and comes from his new three track “The Shining Path” EP which is out now via One Records.
