ryx‘Deliverance’ is the lead single from Ry X’s eagerly anticipated debut album, just been released on Infectious Music, that has already gained world wide acclaim by fans and media alike. He’s always sung his way into our hearts, no matter whether he did it as ‘Ry X’, ‘The Acid’ or ‘The Howling’ together with Âme’s Frank Wiedemann. As such it comes as no surprise that Innervisions’ artist and lover of beautiful melancholic melodies, Eagles & Butterflies, was mesmerised by the album at first listen and moved to create his own mix.

LA based producer Chris Barratt, aka Eagles & Butterflies, is as busy touring as in the studio. Releasing original music on Innervisions, Exit Strategy, Get Physical and Bedrock over the last months, as well recently finishing remixes for Moby, Underworld, Andhim and now Ry X. The Eagles & Butterflies remix of ‘Deliverance’ will be available from 13th June via Beatport.

soundmeThe latest offering from the folks at We Grow Wax is from Polish trip hop band Sound Me, delivering a delicious twelve track album titled Growing. Sound Me fully embodies the ambiance and a sense of dualism captured between a dark past giving way to a brighter future. Inspired by the struggle of living day to day in
working class Poland, vocalist Aani spins her lyricism into an art that paints a picture of love lost searching for a genuine connection. The almost reminiscent old school values that this world seems to have long forgotten is wistfully echoed in the unique style of Sound Me.
A perfect concoction of heavy-hitting drum breaks, dubby instrumentation, live trumpet, rhythmic turntablism, and angelic vocals,Growing inspires its listener drop out and drift away. Deep and moody soundscapes laced with dark, hypnotic beats and powerful vocals remind one of Massive Attack or Portishead while bringing out a new flavor from the classic trip hop sound. This one’s ready for the headphones and a slow night drive through the cities of eastern Europe.
Release Date: July 4, 2016 (CD) / September 19, 2016 (digital)

whatatimeSingularis, the talented young beat-wrangler from the Netherlands, first appeared on the Cold Busted label at the age of 16 with his impressive debut album Evening Hours. Since then he’s grown both as a producer and in age, now unveiling What A Time, his third full-length for the prestigious downtempo imprint. The album’s sixteen tracks combine Singularis’s agility with tough hip hop beats, G Funk style lead lines, and spaced-out vibes for a listening experience beyond easy categorization. The album’s “Introduction” (appropriately subtitled “Slowmotion”) sets the tone with big chords in a layered progression, loping – but swinging – drum machine beats, and Singularis’s trademark synth leads. The way Singulars takes this template and playfully twists it throughout is what makes What A Time a memorable ride. Take “Crassinez” for example, which adds strange synth dives and other digital hijinks, as if Aphex Twin stepped in the studio for a quick moment. And also “Bang”, a very Singularis-ish interpretation of southern low-rider hip hop, clouding the genre with cosmic atmospherics and vague melody. There’s much more to discover here and it’s exciting to know, that at his young age, Singulars is just getting started.
