Youandewan – “93”
Berlin producer Youandewan recently released this silky edit of the classic Souls of Mischief track “93 ’til Infinity,” which stretches out the pensive instrumental over six minutes, laying down an infectious, understated groove. With added atmospheric keys and soulful looping, the track builds upon the serene vibe of the original, delivering a unique soundscape that pays homage to a blissful, treasured hip hop record.
Jacques Greene – “1 4 Me”
Building upon his patient production style that features slow builds and euphoric drops, New York-based producer Jacques Greene released his latest track “1 4 Me” earlier this week in anticipation of his forthcoming EP After Life, After Party on LuckyMe. According to the artist, the track was born out of a personal challenge to “keep an arrangement dead simple,” making for a minimal beat that places emphasis on emotive synths and abstract vocal sampling. For an artist who has been most comfortable creating soulful r&b flavored club music, the track finds Greene right at home with an experimental, highly expressive sound.
Les Sins – “Talk About”
Chaz Bundick aka Toro Y Moi is set to release his first full length November 4th under the name Les Sins, a project that has yielded a handful of playful house oriented tracks to date. The album, Michael, features many of the same funky, pop-centric elements of his previous work, as the fluid track “Talk About” builds upon a simple, elusive synth line and builds to soulful swells featuring intermittent drops of a sample from Nas’ “One Love.” Michael is out November 4th on Carpark Records.
