With so much good music coming through thick and fast, it’s easy for new music to drop online and go unnoticed. To help prevent this, we’ve picked five records you don’t want to sleep on. Stream music from Olof Melander, SPECSWIZARD, KVMI, The Dining Rooms and KING. If you like what you hear, support the artist.
Olof Malender – The Path
‘The Path’ is a progression from my previous record ‘Inner Worlds’ and the focus on searching for the musical voyages is still very relevant in the building of this album. During the process of this album, I moved from a vibrant city atmosphere to a rural sea town. This move played a big part in terms of influences, being close to the sea and nature brought a calming effect on the development.” Olof Melander
SPECSWIZARD – Golden Eagle EP
Specs Wizard, the Elder Statesman of Seattle Hip Hop returns with a new 6-track EP. Give the EP a shot, and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
KVMI – StawrDust pt : : 2 . 4
Washington producer KVMI’s short but sweet EP will definitely leave you wanting more. One of the best experimental beat tapes we’ve heard in a while.
The Dining Rooms – Do Hipsters Love Sun (Ra)?
Milan-based electronic music duo formed by Stefano Ghittoni and Cesare Malfatti in 1998. Their music seamlessly blends ambient, electronica, jazz and a love for cinematic atmospheres. A must listen.
KING – We Are KING
The long-awaited debut album by KING is finally here, and it was worth the wait. This collection epitomises everything that is great about KING. Every aspect of this album is close to perfection.
