Combining BOT and TAI, two producers from starkly different backgrounds and genres, could be risky. Instead, the result of this sort of collaboration evolves beautifully with the release of “NUTHIN BUT FIRE EP”, four tracks of teamwork genius. Totally unique and hard to categorize, which is a good thing when the quality is this high,  “NUTHIN BUT FIRE EP” stands heads above the rest with its blend of jungle/90s breakbeat/wylin’ sounds. In the presence of two producers who truly understand what it means to make groundbreaking music, “NUTHIN BUT FIRE EP” blazes through the speakers and provides a sound that is unforgettable.

Land 2 Air Chronicles II is the second part of Kenna’s three EP series based on the Emerson essay Self-Reliance.  On this second installment, Imitation is Suicide, Kenna is stating the clear influences in his work to help define a musical compass while giving credit where credit is due.  
 

Kenna stated, “Music icons like David Byrne and Rick James inspired Imitation is Suicide.  I think posing as an ‘original’ without acknowledging your influences is like killing yourself.  The chapters and art of this EP speak to those influences all while hopefully dancing between sonics and genres.”

Felix Cartal pushes the definition of “multifaceted” to new heights. Poster child of a perfect coif, Slurpee aficionado, workout warrior, and lover of a decent font; but above all of that, Felix is one heck of a producer who seems to know exactly what his fans want, and how to deliver in a way that never lets them down.
 
Soon, Felix will be giving cause to celebrate once again with the release of his EP, Past Present Felix. Four tracks that will absolutely make you lose your mind, such as “After Dark feat. Koko LaRoo” (a mature composition that will undoubtedly remind listeners of warm summer nights) and “New Scene feat. Ofelia” (a sensitive yet driving track with gorgeous vocal overlays). Never content to reproduce the same sounds over and over again, the Past Present Felix EP is a new era for this Canadian prodigy, and we’re stoked to be along for the ride.

“NOTHING is something you will not like, something you will not understand, it’s simply nothing, as are we all.” – New Ivory

If I had a dollar for all the things I know about the mysterious trio NEW IVORY, I’d be one poor mother watch-yo-mouth! However, if I had a dollar for all the ways I love them, I’d be a mega bajillionaire, and as of today, my riches would increase tenfold because the “Nothing EP” is finally here! Four tracks of grinding, writhing, indie rock that reminds me of the early 90s, but with far more heart and better style. “Nothing EP” is brimming with heavy chords and dynamic vocals, high energy upswings and raw riffs. NEW IVORY is well versed in making music that will ensure their place on the throne of musical geniuses for years to come; this has never been more apparent than it is with the release of “Nothing EP”, on now Dim Mak Records.

Three songs that would make any bass head proud to be an IllSkillz fan, “Who Is Crazy EP” brings us high quality bangers that we are indeed crazy about.
