Genre: beats, dubstep, hip hop
“The songs, originally composed from samples and scratch with their unmistakable old school flavor, have a renewed and unusual appeal. Where once the roots were raw and tightened by funk/rock, now are born downtempo tunes, evocative, atmospheric, and tinged with a soft and organic “rhythm & blues” feel.”
Genre: sample-based, rock, punk, hip hop
Beef Expo is the relentless music project by Danish producer Mikkel Konyher.
Genre: electronic, dance, house, house
One of our favorite artists COINS remixes the Beastie Boys, using nothing but Daft Punk samples. The result is one intergalactic body moving experience.
Genre: electronic, house
A young Brit who loves French House? Tere’s hope after all! And it sounds like RobClemz: freaking funtastiq!
Genre: electronic, synth, pop, synthwave, techno
This edition wouldn’t be complete without Kraftwerk. The pioneers of electronic synth paved the way for the techno and house wave that followed. Spanish / Catalonian band Anbau flows in its wake.
Genre: electronic, instrumental, synth
In case you’re not fluent in Croatian, the artist K.Markov helps out: “Elektro Otpad” means “Electro Trash”. Created exclusively on a Yamaha RM1x, this music is no waste at all.
Genre: electronic, edm, static
Reactor is a high energy collision of electronic sound and rhythms that will shatter any dance floor. Banned on Mars for disturbing the peace.
Genre: electronic, cedm, dubstep, drumstep, house, chillstep, orchestra.
I’m going on an adventure making music. My goal is that the Spirit of God will flow through my music and rest on the people that listen to it and to show that Jesus is the one who partied… *ahem* “before it was cool”.
Genre: electronic, dance, drone, dub, jazz, noise, shoegaze, techno
My first true album, going back to the dub/electronic, beat-based sound of Don’t Let People Label You. If you download it (It’s free, why wouldn’t you? You can always delete it later), it comes the dub mix of Something New (This Way Comes) as a bonus track, which is something I was experimenting with after the success of the original, rawer mix. All I ask in return is that you please share a song or two with a friend or two.
