A defining moment for electronic music across the board, Burial's sophomore album evokes a state of continuous bliss under grey skies.
Dean Blunt's Babyfather delivers an abstract, conceptual hip hop album that explores the struggle of a fictional UK DJ.
Following the release of his Babyfather EP earlier this year, Dean Blunt assumes his new alias again for the above "Meditation," co-produced by Arca. The latter has a new album called Mutant out on November 20 via Mute; hear the lead single "Soichiro" here. Who can say what Blunt has in store for us with all this Babyfather biz, but after last year's fantastic Black Metal, we have every reason to be looking forward to whatever it is.
Update 2/20/16: This track will appear on a full-length Babyfather project titled BBF Hosted by DJ Escrow, out April 1 via Hyperdub. Idris Elba claims it's gonna bump hard in the whip.
Famed electronic music producer, and underground dubstep titan Burial has just dropped a new EP titled Rival Dealer, which is streamable on the Hyperdub Records YouTube channel. Hear the title track above, and you can hear the two remaining songs here and here. Pick up a copy of this new EP over here. Enjoy!
Above, stream "Keep Moving," a sexy cut from Hyperdub artist Jessy Lanza's latest LP Pull My Hair Back. The fluttering synth, bubbly bass, and Lanza's breathy vocals add up to one of the most seductive pieces of electro-R&B you'll hear all year. Enjoy!
Pull My Hair Back is out now via Hyperdub.
DJ Rashad dropped this video and track a few months ago, but it has been criminally underexposed. DJ Rashad cuts up a sample exclaiming that "I don't give a fuck," and then proves he doesn't by creating the main melody of the song from what sounds like an old flip phone's numberpad. Look out for I Don't Give A Fuck--is it a single or EP--to be released on Hyperdub on July 22. Enjoy!
