LISTEN: MNDSGN – YAWN ZEN

mndsgn

MNDSGN is a Los Angeles based Filipino/American producer on the very eclectic Stones Throw roster. While his work has a lot of the dreamy elements which have become synonymous with living and creating in LA, he delves a little deeper into darkness than many of his peers. On top of this, there is a decidedly bouncy sway to much of his output. Yawn Zen will wake you up, then rock you back into a dreamy slumber.

Very gooey.

NEW MUSIC: JONO DAS – ILLUSTRATIONS EP

The latest effort from Auckland-based producer, Jono Das seems to borrow from a vast and deep arsenal of musical influences – Jazz, Latin, Soul, Blues, Psychedelia, and Hip Hop.

His project, aptly titled ‘Illustrations’ combines all of these elements without fault, creating something as visually enriching as it is sonically forthright. Das, who also happens to be an artist, illustrator, graphic designer, and videographer, is no stranger to bringing ideas to life visually, however as of late, prefers to paint songs rather than pictures.

Illustrations is the perfect marriage between earth and space; a fusion of nature and the cosmos.

Listen above and download the project free here.

LISTEN: ARCSTRUMENTALS VOL 1

“This was originally created to replicate the feeling ‘we used to feel’ growing up as kids making our own mixtapes from songs that played on the radio. You would never get the full song from beginning to end, you would sometimes get some radio interference, commercials, etc. So of course you will hear some skips, pops, abrupt cuts and radio noise. That’s what made it beautiful.” – Erick

SONG OF THE DAY

Judging by the amount of new music, features, mixes, djing, and touring he’s been doing lately, I think it’s safe to say Montreal producer, Kaytranada probably hasn’t slept in a year. To top that off, 2015 is already shaping up to belong to him and his team – and rightfully so.

This melodic and bouncy club tune featuring Chi-town’s Vic Mensa (their 2nd full-length collab – see also Wimme Nah), was uploaded to SoundCloud only 1 day ago and already boasts nearly 300k listens.

Sit back and watch the takeover.
