Well good morning sleepy head and welcome to your Mixtape Mondays! Rolling over and hitting the off, or in my case the snooze button on the alarm, on a Monday can brutal but it doesn’t have to be if you have the right kinda of music.

So adding this sweet little Kasbo track to your morning routine may just be the supplement you need. With atmospheric sounds and feels, layered with Nea’s soothing voice, and light flutes tangled with guitar riffs you will be awaking from the dead in style. As the beginning softly wakes and moves you which then introduces you to the drop that gives you a slight burst of energy. Just enough to get out of bed and get your day started.

You’re moving around now, getting that blood flowing, and you’re needing something while you get ready so The Federal Empire comes in and snags the next spot in your playlist. Guitar plucks breathe life into your legs and you can’t help but let out a couple of claps as the vocal comes on and gives you just the right touch of nostalgia. Then the drop comes in and you’re ready to tackle the day ahead.

Getting in the car can be the hardest part, or maybe that’s just me and my road rage…but hey we can get through this together. Thats where Caden Jester’s summer loving track comes in to play. With lovely piano, vibey percussion, and tropical synths, you might just be groovin enough to not think about the person in front of you that refuses to drive the speed limit.

Midsplit is coming in hot with what 2 tracks in like a week, but this time in collaboration with Proto and Chin Chilla. I’m not one to complain about too much music though, especially when it’s oh so good. So for work today you’ll probably just want to keep this one on repeat so you can pretend you’re the one trying to take it slow with your new fling, when in reality you’re just procrastinating and scrolling through Instagram. Teodora’s voice is so good and so catchy that when it gets paired with the solid kicks and vocal chops in the drop, you too will be a victim of the awkward chair dancing.

Clocks ticking down on work and literally ticking in this song, and thats why we’re ending here with Steve Void. Laurell’s powerful voice is enough to get your blood going but then it meets the super interesting and chip tune-esc drop, that i’ll admit had me doing quite a bit head banging during this article. Ugh and then in the bridge going into the last drop I think I fall in love with Laurell a little more everytime. So with fantastic production and writing you’ll be dancing out of the door and on your way to freedom. Thank me later.

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.

Hear “Glitter” ft. Ambré below, find full tour routing below, and stay tuned for more from Keys N Krates.

the result” – Lionel

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.
