Fresh hip-hop from Yung Citizen

Yung Citizen is an up and coming producer / singer / artist from Charlotte, NC. His music has great messages and is refreshing to hear socially conscious hip-hop versus all the mainstream studio rapper bullshit. Below are full length previews of two songs from his forthcoming EP 'Yung Citizen'.

'My High" is his newest song - a collaboration with Celeste Moonchild. A nice slice of contemporary r&b / hip-hop.

"Bruised Generation" was the first single released from the new EP. This is a great song encouraging people to stay positive and be a positive influence in the lives of others.

Here is the video for "Jango", a song from his previously released EP, 'Social Conscience'.

One last treat for you. This one is an instrumental track off of the 'Chosen Sound Volume 1' compilation called "Third Eye". It's a nice downtempo / jazz / funk inspired song.

The music video is for the song "Silver". Hunter/Game talks about their inspiration for the song.

"Silver is inspired by Icelandic landscapes, as we made this track with Fanned Osk from the band Kúra. The lyrics and mood are about December trees that live alone in a kind of desolate heaven, a different world. In this rough and desolated world an imaginary silver fox is walking alone into the desert territory with no other place to go…"

New album from Deep Forest out in June

I am very excited for new Deep Forest material! The new album, 'Evo-Devo', is being released June 10th by Metropolis Records. Producer Eric Mouquet gave some great insight into the concept and process of the album.

“The concept of ‘EVO DEVO’, which is based on studies of the process of evolution and the ability of nature to create new forms and structures, is part of my musical approach. Starting from a single sine waveform to create any kind of sound, based on the broad heritage of the Deep Forest influences, make me feel like these scientists trying to understand the secret of life...”

“Composing a new album is always something special and quite a magical process. I compose and experiment in the studio for months, crafting sounds, taking notes, exploring new machines, playing, improvising and finally letting the music evolve without any preconceived idea. One day without any special reason, everything starts to make sense, the different ideas gather in a logical form and there it is: the finished, brand-new album."

"When I started this one, I did not imagine, that the music finally could lead me to all these songs. Step by step I realized how this album was related to the Boheme-Deep-Forest-Feel and at the same time was so deeply anchored in contemporary electronic music.”

Here is a streaming preview of "Stutter Dream", one of the songs off the new album:

Fresh downtempo music from Bakermat

Lodewijk Fluttert, also known as Bakermat, has released a two song EP called 'Ballade' on Dirty Soul Music. The other song on the release besides the title track is "Gone". Vocals on both songs from Marie Plassard.

"Ballade" starts off with a piano intro, then the vocals sweep in and grab your attention. Percussion kicks in and the song is in full swing. The breakdown also highlights the vocals, then we fade out to just the piano.

"Gone" has a much stronger bass kick, and some nice guitar work. The vocals have quite a different vibe on this one, but just as effective. The song is topped off with a bit of saxophone. This is my favorite of the two.

New double LP from Louie Vega out now!

Louie Vega's latest project, XXIII is out now and features collaborations with a variety of artists on 28 songs across a spectrum of genres. It is his first solo artist album and quite the debut at that, this double LP has music that everyone will enjoy.

While talking about the album, Louie explains, “My inspirations came from various visits around the world and experiences in life. As far as the album’s sounds, I revisited lots of R&B, soul, gospel, nu jazz, even some disco, all within the backdrop of house music, took it back to the artist and song tailoring”.

Describing his artistic process, “The album came together naturally, it was a growing process. It was like planting a tree, each branch represented an artist, a sound, a groove. The entire process happened within a few years. It started with a few songs and then this past year, I was in a creative state and the music happened back to back. As I travelled and toured, I met artists on the road and would record with them a few weeks later. The experience with the artists on the album was magical; they are all so talented and very unique and have their own special quality.”

Here is a promo video about the project:
