Wiley, Slum Village, Broken Bells, Dog Blood, Kove & more

We just shared Zeds Dead Somewhere Else mini-mix last week, but it looks like the Toronto duo is keeping busy. They hit up the BBC’s popular Diplo & Friends showcase this Saturday night to drop a one-hour set of off-kilter beats. From bouncy bingo 2-step to house to plenty of lower frequency bass tracks, Zeds Dead mix […]

Sort like the Weeknd, minus the Brazzers lyrics

Shlohmo teams up with singer Jeremih for his latest track, as far as we know his first foray into a more artist side of R&B. Excellent track from the LA-based producer, with a very Weeknd-y vibe — minus the wannabe pornstar lyrics, of course — which to us is a huge compliment. One of our […]

That’s a bullshit critique — who cares how old you are, as long as the work you do is genuine, honest and more importantly good? Their […]

In other words, superb underground house.  If […]
