Beatmusic producer Shigeto drops the second single from this forthcoming album No Better Time Than Now. The LP is looking at an August 19th release on Ghostly, and I’m finding this new cut to be a bit more interesting than the previously dropped “Detroit Part 1.”
The rhythms throughout this very linear track are heavy, acoustic, and feel somewhat in-the-moment. It’s impressive that Shigeto pulled together a track that’s so jam-like–not to mention pretty on the ears. Enjoy!
Melt Yourself Down’s self-titled debut is a high-energy mix of jazz, funk, and punk rock with some International spices.

This week, London electronic music producer Zomby is dropping his latest full-length album, With Love. It’ll be on 4AD, and features over thirty tracks that span two discs. As the track “Overdose” shows, this guy is really working to diversity his sound, trying his hand at some very atomspheric, textured, and boom-y breakbeat electronica. Enjoy!
“Eyesdontlie” is the latest single from North Carolina producer Machinedrum, and it’s a tight, busy blend of footwork and future garage. It’s matched with a wonderfully manipulated vocal snippet to that repeats endlessly for a strangely hypnotic effect. Unlike some of the more cluttered tracks from this guy’s last full-length, this new cut is incredibly succinct and punchy! If more tracks like this make it onto Machinedrum’s next album, it’ll definitely surpass his last. Enjoy!
Dark ambient kingpin Lustmord will be dropping a new full-length LP this July. I highly doubt the album will be labeled as a “summer record,” though. Still, the excerpt this longtime producer has released is pretty chilling. Stream it via the widget above, and look for The World As Power next month on Blackest Ever Black.
2013 XXL Freshman and Beast Coast MC Joey Bada$$ drops another track from his anticipated Summer Knights mixtape, which has been pushed back for a July 1st release. With all of these huge rap releases around the corner–Kanye, Cole, Miller–I’m not surprised, honestly.
Producer Lee Bannon pulls together a pretty smooth, classy beat, but Joey goes completely bonkers with an over-the-top delivery that is easily one of his most energetic yet. Enjoy!
Exploding In Sound Records brings more of that old school indie rock goodness with a new track from Two Inch Astronaut. The Maryland band is gonna be dropping a new album titled Bad Brother on June 18th. Enjoy!
Some fast, jagged, angular, wild, spastic, and some what zany post-hardcore from the guys in Let’s Talk Daggers. The trio just dropped a new full-length in March titled Fantastic Contraption. I’m gonna give the full-length a listen as soon as I make heads or tails of this video!
