Delicate liquid vibrations from Mystic State on today’s exclusive, dropping as usual on their own imprint The Chikara Project. Soothing vibes for your Wednesday afternoon! Look out for this dropping 2nd July at Bandcamp and other stores.
Silent Dust know exactly how to deliver a hypnotic, jungle-tinged slab of experimental sonics, which is exactly what they’re serving up in the form of Evil Earth. Today’s premiere comes from the forthcoming Audience of None compilation which features a host of brilliant tracks from None60 alumni new and old. Check the track, and hit up Bandcamp to pre-order the album now and snag one of the last few vinyl samplers!

The beauty of Drum & Bass as a genre has always been the variety of styles and influences that can fit within its scope – united by tempo and perhaps drum patterns but otherwise hugely varied. Munich duo Children of Our Stars certainly exemplify that ethos, bringing strong influences from orchestral music and singer-songwriter territory and blending them with the familiar structures and 170 rhythms we know and love.
The pair have just dropped their debut LP and the resulting eleven track effort shows off their talent for soulful, evocative melodies and enthralling musical journeys. The use of live vocals and instrumentation really lends a natural edge to their sound, providing a welcome antidote to the sometimes overly digital sound of Drum & Bass in 2021.
As for the vibes, the tracks are uplifting, beautiful and engaging from start to finish, with particular highlights coming on Home, Take Us Back and First Snow. Check out the clips below and hit up Bandcamp or Spotify to buy/stream Flanell Sessions right now, and if you can’t get enough soulful vocal D&B then keep an eye out for an EP from Children of Our Stars on DNBB Records very soon.
Another month rolls on past which means only one thing…Hex returns with the usual selection of beats and bass. New music inside from Dedman, Break, Myselor, Artsea, Jaise, Soul Intent, Pacific and many more!
Since bursting onto the scene in 2015 via EPs for Silk Recordings & Blu Mar Ten Music, Akuratyde (aka Dan Eshleman) has moved from strength to strength with more releases on BMTM, frequent collaborations with Monika, new projects in the form of 3VS and Vex Seven and starting the excellent Modern Conveniences imprint. He returns to Blu Mar Ten Music this month with his second LP Home Movies, so Hex grabbed a few minutes of his time to dig into the album, collaborations, studio gear and more.
Deep halftime vibrations from Joakuim on today’s premiere, taken from his new LP Flow for Sable Noir Recordings! Proper hypnotic textures on this one…definitely a track to get lost in. Watch out for the album coming on vinyl/CD/digital from June 4th.
