avatars-000039422501-prbpz0-t500x500.jpg

Joakuim is an electronic producer from Marseille, France. He apparently spent some time in Mexico City where some friends introduced him to the liquid drum n bass sounds of Alix Perez and Lenzman. The influence is evident, while he’s personalized his vibe with smooth-house touches.

Check out his newest track ‘Desires,’ now a free download via UK-based label Deep Heads.

Greymatter is Brighton-based electronic producer Graham Luckhurst. After a two-year hiatus of being “pigeonholed into deep house,” he’s back with his new albumĀ No Blood Without on his very own label Unique Uncut.

You can cop the broken beat single ‘Clocks’ now on Bandcamp. Expect to hear more of these beat-breaking skills.

Parisian producer Edn Hak makes his own Burial-esque interpretation on his new Reapers EP. ‘Wanderer’ is one of the standout cuts. It crackles on the surface before dipping intoĀ delicate, heartwarming samples and kicks.

Beats, rhymes, and pieces. That’s what you’ll hear from prolific musician Oddisee, a native of the Diamond District. He’s back again with his third release in a dozen months with The Iceberg, an album that sees him grapple with the issues related to culture, race, and politics. The White House barred him from performing at Obama’s Farewell for his “controversial” lyrics on the track ‘Lifting Shadows.’

If the tune ‘NNGE’ is any indication, Oddisee is prepared to sharpen his words to meet these darker times.

“I grew up witnessing many protests come to Washington DC. This song continues that tradition by using words of encouragement over production inspired by the native sounds of DC music.” — Oddisee
