After some EPs on Obey City's Astro Nautico imprint, Brooklyn producer Patrick Loggins (aka Time Wharp) announces a debut LP which (per FACT
) "balances minimal synth-wave, New York house and meditative new age"—along with a nice FaltyDL remix
London R&B singer Dornik turned in one of the best live sets we saw at The Great Escape festival last week, while this week finds a shiny new tune from the former member of Jessie Ware's band—a hint of what's to come on his debut album, due in August.
"Blending doo-wop harmonies, wet surf-guitar riffs, and crunchy garage rock," says Turntable Kitchen
, Seattle four-piece La Luz preview their forthcoming album, which was recorded in a surf shop in San Dimas and produced by Ty Segall.
At the end of 2014, Kim Pflaum parted with Yumi Zouma to focus on her solo project, Madeira. Her first stop, however, was this guest spot for Auckland-based producer (and fellow Kiwi) Boycrush, currently free to download until the EP is released next week.
Dutch producer Nicolay mostly keeps busy with The Foreign Exchange (his duo with Phonte Coleman, whose vocals also feature here). This is a track from his latest locale-inspired solo LP (and first in six years), City Lights Vol 3: Soweto, plus a non-LP b-side.
This week's album premiere is the self-titled LP
from Nocturnal Sunshine, "the darker, dubbed-out basshead alter-ego of house superstar Maya Jane Coles."
As for interesting reads, try this one on why we love repetition in music.
Thanks for listening!
