[Tape] ZenZan – 2049

Earlier this week, iPad producer ZenZan let loose the Blade Runner inspired project 2049. Made up of eight instrumentals, the bass-heavy tape is soaked in jazz, trap, ambient, and hip-hop. It’s a glorious escape for 20 minutes.

[House Mix] Mulatto & Cangelosi – Grand Prix

Paying homage to the Chicago legend Frankie Knuckles, producers Mulatto and Cangelosi linked up for a 9-and-a-half minute house mix known as Grand Prix. The project takes inspiration from the race track and feels like driving a fast car after midnight. Don’t sleep. Get on your feet.

[Single] Zed Kenzo – Go Psycho

Milwaukee wild child Zed Kenzo does it all on her own with the new single “Go Psycho.” Focusing on self-empowerment, lone wolf global takeovers, and uplifting isolation, the track is something you need to bump when you need a pick-me-up. Something to blast before a job interview, before a blind date, before anything stressful that comes your way.

[Single] Sean Deaux and Qari – Persona

St. Louis vocalist/producer Sean Deaux linked with Chicago vocalist/producer Qari for “Persona”. With Deauxva behind the boards, the two trade hazy, atmospheric lines. It sounds like slow motion in a strip club.

[Feature] Catching up with Producer Jetson

Turn your head around for an instant and you might miss something special from producer Jetson. The New Zealand artist and Chill Children founder has released four heaters in the last few months.

His most recent is ‘Coolin’ which sounds exactly like summer. Which it is, on the other side of the globe. Prior to that drop, he released ‘pull up on u’ , which is unstoppable, pounding through the speakers, and comes complete with edited video work.

From flips to reworkings to ‘late night edits’ to original numbers, his portfolio is one to play during a midnight rainstorm. Something to impress your friends and appease your eardrums.

With four pieces of music that impress following his past Lemon Water EP, consider this a reminder to continue listening to Jetson. Who knew bass-heavy bangers could be this smooth?

[EP] Rigz – A Piece of the Action

Late last year, rapper Rigz linked with Australian producer Flu for a five song EP A Piece of the Action. The bar-heavy project is full of hypnotizing soul samples and smooth flows. If you like what you hear, check out the added instrumentals over on Bandcamp.

[Album] Nedarb – Amity

Multifaceted artist Nedarb kickstarted this calendar year with a 16 song album known as Amity. Featuring an epic plethora of familiar names and Candy Drips affiliates, the project blends genres for a sound unlike anything around. It’s been great watching Nedarb’s evolution and progression, and this album is a further example of that rise.

If you need more, be sure to check out our interview with him a little over a year ago.

[EP] Young Wolf & XVRHLDY – About Time

Last month, Windy City artists XVRHLDY and Young Wolf let loose the six song EP About Time. The project is aggressive, dimly lit, and begging to be played in the whip.
