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 releases that may have slipped past your radar. Stream music from ACR, Flow Theory, René Schier, _fuux and Modlee x Vlooper . If you like what you hear, support the artist.
ACR – the opposite of aloof vol. 1
“This is ACR’s first compilation titled “the opposite of aloof vol. 1″. its aim is to showcase some of our favourite artists, but also to kickstart our little label.” Intruging and interesting introduction to the new London labe.
Flow Theory – Flow Theory
“This is the first collaborative project from the growing Flow Theory family, this is our sonic personality, the deepest expression of our collective soul. We create music to make you feel something.” Solid project frrom the Flow Theory collective featuring an array of producers, vocalists, DJs and artists.
René Schier – Zazen
“With Zazen, René Schier offers us a ticket into a parallel universe where the laws of physics are different. You’ll find yourself floating in air and walking on water. A place where your dreams are reality and reality is just a dream. With deep jazzy melodies and abstract beats, Zazen transcends music genres, we are somewhere in between. Let yourself go, open a window to your inner vision, here’s a great piece of music to meditate to. But rest assured heavy head nodding is part of the ritual!”
_fuux – 雲
“雲 means cloud. The perfect title for such a collection, Japanese beatsmith _fuux (who has released gems all over the place under various names and styles for FOGPAK, AKO-JPN and others) finds himself somewhere in between ambiance and heavy beat/bass driven bangers that would find themselves in an after party or similar drugged-out, late-night escapade of Flying Lotus, Moodymann or even Ryuichi Sakamoto. Press play, sit back, and find your true inner center as these blissed-out textures stimulate your mind and bring you peace.”
Modlee x Vlooper – Queendom
“After releasing the SUNWALK EP through Soulection, Modlee is back with her new QUEENDOM mixtape.Living in Quebec, Modlee has made Her debut within the beatmaking community from Montreal called ARTBEAT MTL. QUEENDOM takes us into a sultry future-soul-funk-hip-hop journey.The songs vibrate on themes such as love, family, woman hood and relationship. Once again her music is mostly produced by the beatmaker Vlooper (Alaclair Ensemble). His signature sound keeps complimenting modlee’s ambient style.”
