Crash Land Warps Time And Sound With Latest Single

Anthony Tedder

Published

Having garnered success with over 2 million streams worldwide of its self titled debut single ‘Crash Land’ earlier this year, this emerging and enigmatic artist now presents its second musical offering in the form of ‘Time Warp’ set for release on STMPD RCRDS on Friday 27th October.

‘Time Warp’ tells the story of an all-encompassing love and desire that knows no boundaries of time or place. The track opens with a wave of soft, lightly synthesised instrumentals that carry throughout and compliments the contrasting vocals of both rappers. A soft kick and shortened, sharp drum sequence builds in to the drop which awakens the senses and immerses the listener right back into the soft melody of the track. The clean sound that has emerged from this arrangement creates a futuristic vibe and brings a fresh interpretation of hip hop.

As STMPD RCRDS has demonstrated with its signing of Crash Land there is a strong desire for the label to support different musical genres and offer a diverse array of music through its imprint. As the mystery surrounding Crash Land continues one thing is certain, there is more to come.

Toronto-based live electronic act Keys N Krates are back to share a new single. “Glitter” features Ambré, and sees the group continuing to expand their sound and explore new territory as they broaden their style beyond the dance world. A deep twilight groove featuring New Orleans R&B talent Ambré, Keys N Krates emerge from the darkness with “Glitter,” which layers intoxicating vocals over snappy bass and warped strings for a hypnotic slowed down disco feel.

“We were trying to draw from music we love and grew up on like Jay Dilla, Tribe, DJ Premiere, as well current stuff that we love like everything from Beach House to Chrome Sparks to a lot of current rap stuff,” explains the group’s turntablist Jr. Flo. “We wanted to everything to sound like a sample.”

The group is also announcing that “Glitter” will be the lead single to their debut album, entitled Cura, arriving in early 2018 via Dim Mak Records.

Coinciding with the release of “Glitter,” Keys N Krates are also announcing a lengthy North American tour set to kick off on January 24th and running through the spring.

In other news, the group’s “Dum Dee Dum” single has recently achieved RIAA gold status. Given that the song never received significant radio airplay, this milestone is a testament to the scope of the group’s grassroots popularity.

DREVM Debut Eerie Genre Entitled 5-Track EP ‘Lo-Death’

Lo-Death

DREVM are back at it again, and this time the duo takes their previously coined genre “Deathcore“, and flips it on its head with more tastefully eerie effects. However, instead of another single, DREVM debut a new 5-track EP entitled ‘Lo-Death’. The EP boasts some dark, lo-fi vibes and while some tracks may seem short the general ambiance and consistency among the tracks make this EP seem like one long horror story. Although each separate track delivers its own unique atmosphere, together they almost effortlessly blend into something spectacular.

When asked how ‘Lo-Death’ was born, DREVM responded saying, “We included more lo-fi elements like the jazz/chill breakdowns… the drops are still heavy on the low end but are a little different from our “Deathcore” stuff.” Not surprisingly, this is pretty ordinary per DREVM’s style, as they also exclaimed they really wanted to hammer home the “really eerie, dark, and creepy” vibes for this EP.

If you ask me they knocked it out of the park. Take a listen to DREVM’s ‘Lo-Death EP for yourself below.
