One Pacifico Swing

February 23, 2012

The Oakland based musiclabel MAPZZZ comes with a brand new beatmaker project called Hoodcats. It’s a three-way collaboration between Shortcircles (aka Empty Pockets) and the ambient pop duo James & Evander. Their production One Pacifico Swing is what I think you can call a perfect example of dopeness.

You should definitely check out this first mix from Earperception, a musicblog of a friend of mine. He did a very good job!

Mud Doctor

February 14, 2012

The LA-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Cliff Dweller (also known as Ari Balouzian) just released his Perch Verdad EP. Ari successfully works in a wide variety of obscure sounds and puts strange feelings into his music, with Mud Doctor being a good example of his unique vision on sample-based electronica.

Lumiere from the Michigan based producer RxGibbs is what you can call a gorgeous gem. It’s perfect in everything it does. The song will be featured on the upcoming (21 february) Futures EP, released on Cascine Records.

The Chicago based producer Mister Lies has managed to put together this elegant, free flowing beatscape. It goes along with a beautiful Joni Mitchell sample and some subtle piano notes. Unfortunately this is the only track on his soundcloud at the moment, but I think we can expect to hear more in the near future.
