The records dropping this year are getting better and better, and 3 of our favorite new labels all dropped releases today. The releases are diverse in sound, but each one is a special spin. Here’s some new music you need.
DJ Rashad – Afterlife (Teklife Records)
A new super-diverse compilation of DJ Rashad collaborative songs with members of the TEKLIFE crew including DJ Spinn, Traxman, Manny, DJ Earl, DJ Paypal, Taso and more. Each tune reveals a different layer of the classic footwork sound – a sound with no limits.
Dot – Modern Romance EP (Unspeakable Records)
The multi-talented Dot, founder of the all-women label Unspeakable Records, drops a dreamy EP fully produced and written (arranged and mixed) by herself. As the title suggests “Modern Romance” has whimsical music notions and Dot’s voice carries listeners into the clouds, but tracks like “Haze” remind you that this lady is still an electronic producer to be reckoned with.
a race of angels – Before The First Goodbye (FreshSelects)
A free EP? Yay. Fresh Selects drops a new offering from a new artist “a race of angels” (please do not capitalize). Well crafted songwriting meets sweet production, ambient with touches of synthy edge. These tracks were some that didn’t make the upcoming album from a race of angels a, but gives listeners a nice taste of what’s to come.
