Age is a box, yes, but it’s also a straight line. Think about it. “One By One”.
Vet Bibio drops off a new bit of surrealistic indie pop in the form of the excellent rhythm-driven track, “Old Graffiti”.
Lisbon-based producer Branko is joined by Sango and UK vocalist Cosima on “Hear From You”. A kinetic mix of Brazilian-influenced rhythms set to an R&B-y instrumental backdrop, “Hear From You” is excellent. Check that cuica-sounding break first heard at 1:13.
“Stay” is the new collaborative track of vets Aston Shuffle, Fabich and vocalist Dana Williams. “Stay” is propelled by its neat juxtaposition of a cooled main melody and minor keyed tones set to a head nods, inc house-y beat. Give “Stay” your attention below.
Beamed straight from the wilds of Belgium through your speakers and into the zone of your bloodstream set to funk. “Duran Duran”, the latest from Vhyce (with an assist from Yves Parquet), adeptly juxtaposes moody synths, a hook-laden pop-destroyer melody, and a main groove that keeps things moving. “Listen to Duran Duran”.
SG’s consistency in delivering across varying sounds and styles is gd remarkable. “Again”, which features Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, explores the more dance-y section of SG Lewis’ sound with A+ results.
