after all the hype for hayley kiyoko im left kinda dumbfounded at the fact that syd tha kyd doesnt have a wlw following yet. she’s lesbian and in pretty much all of her songs she sings about women. furthermore she’s just a masterful artist; her songs are smooth and sexy and full of feeling and can be likened to the sound of frank ocean’s channel orange. make syd that kyd a wlw icon 2k16

It would seem, quite obviously, that I’m not the only one that has obsessively fallen in love with Gallant’s swooning crooning and soulful electronic music. The remixes of his music are coming in strong. The moment I heard Louis Futon’s remix of Gallant’s Weight In Gold, I was sold. The Philadelphia producer’s rendition of the fast rising Los Angeles artist’s song is exactly the kind of future bass and chill trap opus that gets me good. In fact, Louis Futon’s remix reminds me very much of Prince Fox’s remix of Sam Smith’s Stay With Me… a full on emotionally charged wobbly, shimmering, swelling masterpiece of saccharine, organic texture. The remix is sheer, heart-rending power.

The legend never dies! 

This is the first half of the batch I’ve been working on. I decided to split them up into two groups because, unfortunately, my airbrush broke before I could finish painting all the masks. When the second half will be finished depends on when the replacement parts for my airbrush arrive.

Berlin producer BLVTH linked up with singer songwriter NOVAA earlier this year to bombard us with a heavenly torrent of future bass and chill trap on Ocean, a single lifted from of his 2016 EP 7IGER.  The latest single from that EP, its title track, proves itself a grandly arresting affair, too. With it, BLVTH cements himself into the annals of the “post-EDM” scene, a modernistic movement that tries to classify the way in which artists have outgrown the classic definition of a DJ or producer. BLVTH slides right in next to the likes of Crywolf and EDEN with his masterful song crafting and his emotive sweeping delivery. 7IGER is a vehemently impassioned future bass masterpiece, an intricately woven tapestry of sound. It resonates and fills the air around us with its dramatic shudders and tingling shivers. 7IGER can also be streamed off Soundcloud below. You can purchase BLVTH’s EP from iTunes.
