Tokoyo – Singles

  Winter heat from German beatmaker Tokoyo. His project Singles is a moody, lo-fi, loop-ladden project that starts off strong with the instantly-recognizable vocal from the Queen’s Bridge general and continues in a similarly strong vein. Tokoyo manuvers the listener through 7-tracks of chill terrain changing tempos & moods without ever switching the vibe. A…

devonwho – Lyon EP

More power to devonwho! Everything this producer touches turns to electro-funk gold. The long-awaited Lyon EP dropped a few months ago and I foolishly neglected to post it up here…uff. Better late than never and all that. Click the small triangle and be prepared to take on Klipmode number one’s latest audio manifestation!    Lyon – EP…

Video: Mndsgn – Cosmic Perspective

4 minutes and 28 seconds of pure realness from Stone’s Throw. Mndsgn knows the coup, someone who clearly knows & fully understands the importance of style and taste. These  Eric Coleman visuals carry an interesting esthétique.  Think community tele, meets  moog-led, holy spirit-touching-Soul Train kinda experience. A quality track with quality visuals, featuring a slew of cameos from the current…

Blakesmith – Cool

    This release oozes cool in an effortlessly cool kind of way. Totally understated, but not to be under-estimated Blakesmith composes the finest jams from his Parisian base. Heaps of quality & finesse await on this release. I for one am already eagerly anticipating this man’s next release. Cool is smooth, well produced and well…

Elusive – Headspace

Headspace is both rich & lavish in equal measures. Elusive’s fourth release on LA-based Alhpa Pup, the 16-track release features guitarist Emile Pore’e, Angels Dust vocalist Flavia & trumpet player, Josh Koslow. Each track a step forward with regards to any musical expectations listeners have for Elusive. Speaking on the project and it’s goals the producer…
