Up and coming NYC-based rapper and producer LE1F is not afraid to bust out his orange fur coat, ying yang signs and outlandish dance moves. Produced by Bot, a.k.a. former half of Crookers, and featuring Spank Rock, this collaboration between creative masterminds gives birth to a galactic, deep fusion of hip-hop and house. Part of LE1F’s latest mixtape Fly Zone, this beat hits you hard with unconventional rhymes that are totally awesome.
Matthew Herbert, UK-based conceptual composer and producer, tames the bass-infused beat of British DJ and producer Maxxi Soundsystem, known for his kaleidoscopic, gloomy house beats. Herbert’s reconstruction oozes indulgent synths, minimalistic yet potent, and ensures a dancing all-nighter.
In “Far Nearer” Jamie XX experiments with tropical sounds that bounce off the steel-drum, as well as his ever-evolving obsession with soulful, funky echoes and the absence of noise. T.H.I.E.F.S. takes the smooth, sultry track, and wire the echoes into swift and sharp repetitions that seems to soar through your head.
The French electronic music duo, Alexis and Mederic known as BeatauCue, transform “Steve McQueen” into a psychedelic light dubstep that is sure to send party goers into non-stop, full blast dancing. “Steve McQueen,” released in 2011 on M83’s sixth studio album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, keeps its uplifting melodies, amorphous vocals and guitar, and monumental power drums while becoming a playful, futuristic maze that you’ll totally lose yourself in.
