Marilyn Manson offers reverb heavy synth track with “KILL4ME”

This post was originally published on this site

Marilyn Manson has released a surprisingly palatable single entitled “KILL4ME.” The track combines the sound he’s carried for decades with less rigid, more modern feel. While Manson has long occupied one of the darkest corners of the music industry, this release is along the lines of a radio ready, reverb-laden electronica track.

Coming off the wild success of their third studio album, A Moment Apart, the guys of ODESZA haven’t shown signs of slowing.

In addition to their ambitious touring schedule, Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight have just released a promotional video into the making of “Meridian,” the eighth track off the their latest LP. The video traces the beginnings of their creative process from their studio in Seattle, as they play with different samples and synth patterns, to the seasons shifting in Washington, to the moment their work all becomes reality as they debut the track live during their grandiose Red Rocks performance last May.

ODESZA’s A Moment Apart sold 63,000 units in the first week, the best ever sales week for the indie-pop electronic producers to date.

Burial – Rodent (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Following the release of his Subtemple EP back in May, Burial re-emerges this year with another elusive, slow-grooving gem titled “Rodent.”

Slated for a Sept. 22 official release date via Hyperdub, the electro-dub track capitalizes on ominous bass lines and a seductive, looping vocal. The single is further aided by passing trumpet samples and minimal percussive elements that ultimately draw attention to the London-based producer’s idiosyncratic experimental style. Despite his ambiguous persona, Burial’s work maintains its notoriety as this newest release places the musician’s next-level production prowess on full display.

Slow Magic shares new single, announces world tour

This post was originally published on this site

Fresh off his forthcoming album, Float, out Oct. 6 on Downtown/Interscope, enigmatic producer Slow Magic has shared a new single, “Drum.” The unique beat-maker has steadily gained global recognition from artists like ODESZA for his witch doctor aesthetic and mesmerizing live production, of which the man behind the multi-colored animal mask says, “I always play drums live along with the songs, but Float is my first time recording live drums directly.”

But the witch doctor aesthetic is no easy feat. When Slow Magic takes the stage, he brings all the energy of a wild, untamed beast with expert producing skills over an energetic — even aggressive, at times — live animalistic persona. “Drum” follows previously released singles “Mind” featuring Kate Boy and “Light” featuring Tropics, both of which are sampled in the track — along with every single other song from Float. The result is a simplistic, charming track that highlights the drums over any other instrument. With quickly rising synths, the song is built for the beginning of his live shows, in what is sure to take listeners along for Slow Magic’s sonic rollercoaster ride of energy and raw emotion. The young up-and-comer says this of the track,

“I decided to keep it simple, just two toms and one cymbal. I wanted to capture the simplicity and limitation of using only a couple of drums…I wanted to make a song that reminded people of their animal instinct.”

Slow Magic has already embarked on his world tour in support of the new Float LP. There will be a completely revamped live show with a ton of new music off the album. A full list of dates is below.

Lenii & Benta – Bones (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Lenii and Benta have released a relaxing, gorgeous original titled “Bones,” which remains illuminated with an innocently romantic glow from start to finish. Emotional lyrics cried out by Lenii  remind listeners that she is human, and that ultimately we all are and thus share the same struggles.

Lenii is better known to friends and family by Ellen Murphy. She’s a 20-year-old music producer, DJ, and singer from Cork, Ireland. She started writing and composing music at a very young age, and her passion has allowed her to explore various cultures and elements that can be acutely heard in her productions. Lenii is classically trained in violin, which have allowed her to compose ballads and instrumentals.

Her musical direction has since evolved to heed a more electronic and modern approach to music, and “Bones” is an exemplary example. Her impeccable sound design skills blended with a balance of ethereal vocals, classical music knowledge, and passion for her craft will continuously expand upon her roots within the electronic music industry and inspire those that have are grazed by her talents.

Four Tet shares contemplative new track ‘Scientists’ off forthcoming album

This post was originally published on this site

The energy is palpable, as Four Tet‘s new album, New Energy, will see the light of day this September. In what was unsurprisingly anti-climactic, Kieran Hebden announced the record on his social media on Sept. 12. The following day, the artist coyly dropped the album’s fourth single, “Scientists.”

“Scientists” is a slightly more laid-back affair than previous swirling numbers “SW9 9SL,” “Planet,” and “Two Thousand and Seventeen.” The fourth single, while rich in its beats and instrumentation, is a mostly contemplative number serving as a further signal that a comprehensive body of work is on the way.

Giraffage releases unconventional dance tune ‘Maybes’ ahead of new album

This post was originally published on this site

San Francisco’s bedroom-based producer Charlie Yin, better known as Giraffage, has an album on the way. In a recent interview with NPR, the producer explained he barely left his room throughout recording. “So, basically, I didn’t go outside,” he said of the two years he spent making his debut record, Too Real (out Oct. 20 on Counter Records). “I hung out in my room with my Siamese cat, Cheeky, until it was done. The end.”

A new single off the forthcoming record, “Maybes,” has just arrived and it’s a cheeky, pleasant lullaby. Featuring the dreamy vocals of Brooklyn singer-songwriter Michelle Zauner, known as Japanese Breakfast, the song is a glistening wave that washes over its listeners with a tide of renewal. While the song’s lyrics dwell on irresolution, the impact of “Maybes” lies lesser in its lyrics that in its visceral sonic tenderness. The track’s vocals and synths rise and fall unexpectedly and equate to Yin as an outlier amongst his contemporaries.

“I really didn’t want to do the build-up-drop thing,” Yin said of creating the unconventional dance tune.”When I did use drops, I wanted them to surprise the listener, to blossom unexpectedly, to be more of a story.”

Jamie xx officially releases celestial reworking of The xx’s ‘On Hold’

MUST WATCH: The xx put an electronic spin on Justin Timberlake’s ‘My Love’ and it’s delightful

This post was originally published on this site

At the end of August, Romy Madley Croft of the indie seminal boundary pushing outfit the xx shared in an interview that the group had plans to release “their techno tunes.”

While the world patiently awaits that day, we can still see a subtle gravitation towards a more electronic approach from the group in their live performance endeavors. Perhaps their latest move towards this is the group’s stop by BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge. During their appearance, the group played a number of their well-known tracks but went on to give Justin Timberlake’s “My Love” off his seminal 2006 work FutureSex/LoveSounds, a whole new world of meaning.

GRiZ shares chill 4/20 ballad with ProbCause & Jaye Pryme, ‘Smoke That’

This post was originally published on this site

Although GRiZ released a full 13-track Good Will Continue (Remixes) project just a little more than a week ago, the Colorado-based future funk artist has been busy in his home studio collaborating with some of his friends. After all, Grant Kwiecinski, the man behind GRiZ, is known for regularly hosting live studio feeds on his Facebook page for his beloved fan base, the most recent of which was a jam session hosted at his flat in the Rockies.

“Smoke That,” out Aug. 28, is lighthearted downtempo track that truly speaks to Grant’s love of the ganja. Produced on the national 4/20 holiday with close collaborators ProbCause and Jaye Pryme, the track features all the beautiful funk elements GRiZ has become widely known for, including a saxophone melody and futuristic synth chords, along with some chill candy-glitch samples. The result is a fun and lovable ballad that highlights Pryme’s angelic chorus vocals and ProbCause’s hip-hop lyrics on the verses.
