[ELECTRONICA] Night Cruise - "Sunsets" + "Mah Body (Say My Wat)"

Chicago’s weather is a cruel bitch. With temperatures reaching near 60 degrees over the last couple days, it seems only rational that it should snow 17 inches tomorrow, right? Such is the schizophrenic psycho attitude of the Windy City. With sun and warmth drenching the city, Monday’s beautiful weather not only brought out the shorts […]

[HOUSE] Mr. Probz – “Waves (Robin Schulz Remix)”

Mr_Probz_Waves

Sometimes, for some unknown reason, a wonderful thing happens and amongst all of the generic and tired hooks, riffs, and drops that is the current state of progressive house, a real gem rises like a phoenix and manages to breach the upper reaches of the Beatport Top 10.

[END OF YEAR] Best Of Experimental & Ambient

[END OF YEAR] Best Of Experimental & Ambient

With outstanding releases from both veterans and newcomers, 2013 was a rewarding year in experimental and minimalist music for both long-time fans and complete strangers. The genre seems to be fragmenting into a number of different trends – avante-jazz is back (was it ever really gone?); analog synths are back as well as experimentation with […]
