Tycho - Division +2 remixes

Posted by 29 sites • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
Topping all our charts, Tycho's first release since 2014 LP Awake—which sent the ISO50 founder and Ghostly artist into a new stratosphere of popularity—is unsurprisingly "sweeping," says CoS. "Essentially summer painted in a 7/8 time signature."

Topaz Jones - Powerball

A real winner here from the rising Montclair rapper. Wedging "upbeat money-on-the-mind verses around an infectious hook" (P&P), the G-funk-inspired track sets expectations high for Jones' follow-up to his 2014 debut (which featured Chad Valley and Hodgy Beats).

MLiR - People

MLiR may borrow its acronym from a Blur album (Modern Life is Rubbish) but the Swedish collective's new EP is stacked with feelgood summer jams. A great tip from LaGaSta who adds, "analog gear and hard-to-find vinyl samples, brimming with color and vibrance."

R.L. Kelly - Mad

The 2014 compilation Boring Ecstasy: The Bedroom Pop Of Orchid Tapes was a milestone for the young NY label, featuring the likes of Alex G and recent Stereogum Artist To Watch Yohuna. Now they've shared the first entry to their next, from LA's Rachel Levy.

Jimmy Edgar - Dreamz Come True feat. Rochelle Jordan

Having recorded for Warp, K!7 and Hotflush, the Detroit-born techno producer now runs the well-respected label Ultramajic—home to his new EP Dreamz Come True. The title track shows Edgar moving into decidedly more melodic territory on this outing.

Omni - Wednesday Wedding

Deluxe, the debut album from Omni (members of Deerhunter, Balkans, and Carnivores).

Third Bridge Creative traces the death and resurrection of the pop album:

"Sure, artists like Taylor Swift and Justin Beiber continued to exemplify the traditional, singles-oriented methodology, but there also emerged a new path: releasing thematically cohesive, aesthetically ambitious albums that were a callback to the the long-players of bygones eras, but are distributed in a way that plays into the strengths of the digital marketplace."

Thanks for listening!
