Amidst a European tour last year, Waldo & The Seventh struck up a collaboration in Paris with recording artist Maydien. The result is ‘Foreign Trance’, the lead single from Maydien’s debut EP ‘Hello Soul’ released 9th March. Even though it’s his second language, the Dutch vocalist’s gravelly yet soothing undertones match up perfectly with the two members from AGO music group, accompanied by an original production from Mitchell LC Yard that effortlessly switches up between a melodic & bass driven structure behaving true to it’s trance-like theme.
The same praise goes for The Seventh & Waldo as AGO are constantly making waves, it’s hard to ignore their growing authoritative presence in a constantly evolving Hip-hop scene. Whether you saw them kill it at SXSW last year or simply log in to soundcloud to see them on the front page, the movement is undeniably real.
‘Foreign Trance’ is available to purchase on iTunes & stream now on Spotify & please make sure to follow the artists on their links below.

Sants is fast becoming known for his distinct ability to digest a wide array of foreign influences and reinterpret them through the harsh lens of the Brazilian scene. He’s one of few pushing the beat scene from his home city of São Paulo, beginning with the debut album ‘Noite Ilustrada’ conceived at the Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp in 2013.
The 22 y/o producer prides himself on the weird & wonderful, layering heavy ‘London’ bass on top of a wild cocktail of original sounds that depict the constant bustle of a metropolitan night. After recently starring on Mixmag’s compilation tape with Trapdoor, Sants is eager to continue his international collaborations with conviction. His very first EP ‘Chavoso’ has found its home in London at Trapdoor Records, joined by a mix of artists & producers pushing a scene without genre tags.

We’ve had MISOGI’s ‘Occult’ LP on repeat for the past few months. It’s a careful blend of the dark, distorted production that leaves you slightly hypnotised & wondering where the last 30 minutes went. And although his new single ‘Lantana’ is slightly less dark, the track still entrances with a flourish of melody, driven by a intricate drum patten & sturdy bass line. It definitely requires multiple listens to really admire the little delicacies throughout, as the Dubai based producer is set to build upon his impressive catalogue along side his upcoming collective HURT next year.

Distant Memories

Premiere via EARMILK

Reminiscent nostalgia springs to mind when we listen to ‘Distant Memories’, a seamless expression of old-school jazz roots & new age production.
Almost a dozen layers of trumpet are layered upon each other, accompanied by a minimal drum beat & flowing chord changes to create a short yet succinct piece that requires repeat listening on the regular.
The track is a collaborative piece between BrassTracks, a Brooklyn based trumpeter /producer / drummer duo & Alexander Lewis, Multi instrumentalist / producer recently graduated from Manhattan School of Music Jazz Program.
We’re delighted to give this one away for free as an early xmas present ! Heres hoping this isn’t the last link up between these guys.
