Lipphead – “Rocks In My Pillow“
Producers Blockhead (Ninja Tune, Rhymesayers Entertainment) and Eliot Lipp (Pretty Lights Music, Alpha Pup) have teamed up to drop a single titled “Rocks In My Pillow “. The track has a smooth drum groove, underpinned by nostalgic low tones and funky west coast bass synths. The track is taken from the duo’s new collaborative album In The Nude.
NICKELMAN – “Mixnuts”
Osaka, Japan based producer Nickelman shares the single “Mixnuts” and releases a new instrumental album titled BeatGrocery. “Mixnuts” has a lofi and atmospheric feel with jazz elements layered over soft groovy drums. It’s quite nostalgic and has a warm vibe as well.
Malik Diao & Fred Red- “automatic”
Musician Malik Diao and Berlin-based producer Fred Red team up for this genre-bending piece titled “automatic”. The beat here is quite dynamic and blends cinematic textures, gripping guitar riffs and airy synths with rousing DnBstyle drums that switch to boom-bap drums as it progresses.
BEATHOVEN XII – “…II sided mirror…”
Australian producer BEATHOVEN XII shares his new release titled “…II sided mirror…”, a mellow and dark beat made up of an ominous synth, cinematic textures, and thumping trap-style drums.
Brainiac [The Archive] – “_RAW_music:[THEORY]”
Brainiac [The Archive] drops “_RAW_music:[THEORY]” which showcases his offbeat choppy sounds. The track is cinematic and has a gritty feel and the vocal samples add an ominous documentary feel to it as well.
The track is a snippet from his upcoming album.
Messy Spells – “BLU DREAM_”
Messy Spells’ “BLU DREAM_” is a blend of experimental textures and thick boom-bap drums. The beat starts slowly with moody bell-arps and builds up into a frenzy with distorted synths and layered sound design.
IBSwagBeatz – “Carbon Red”
IBSwagBeatz makes an entry on our site with “Carbon Red”, a dark moody track made up of lush synths, punchy drums, and atmospheric textures to boot.
AYASAHAR – “FBS”
Polish producer AYASAHAR makes his entry on our site with a beat titled “FBS”. The beat doesn’t really conform to a singular genre and has hints of electronic, drum, and bass with retro 80s pop elements. The drums are punchy, and the synths and cinematic textures do work as well and give off an almost unpredictable sound palette.
Tom Kaye – “Any Given Sunday”
Tom Kaye gives us some anthemic energy in his new beat “Any Given Sunday”. The beat is punchy and made up of orchestral elements from cinematic violins, anthemic brass stabs, and dynamic arrangements. It feels like the opening of an epic movie.
Zigg Zag – “Mostly Trippy Horror Shit”
Long Island, New York-based producer Zigg Zag helps close out this week’s list with “Mostly Trippy Horror Shit”. The title speaks for itself and listeners are drawn into a layered world ripe with ominous textures, woozy offbeat bassline, and haunting vocal hums that are fully inspired by old-school horror films. It even samples what I think is a film by the late Vincent Price but I stand corrected.
