New Release: Mark de Clive-Lowe – ‘Renegades’


Our friend Mark de Clive-Lowe this week released his ninth studio album, Renegades. Hopefully you heard his bright and shiny track with Nia Andrews called “The Why.” In addition to the lovely miss Nia, the album boasts appearances from the much loved Omar, Sheila E, and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson.

Mark shares about his approach to blending recording styles and genre, “My whole thing with this kind of production is balancing electronics and programming with organic and live musicianship. I love for that line to be blurred almost to the point where you don’t know which is which.”

And now that you’re all topsy-turvy with anticipation, enjoy a full stream of the album below before you buy!

New Track: Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble – “Pretend” (Soul Clap Remix)


The spooky-cool Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble is undeniably mesmerizing on their “Pretend” single and video from their latest work, Mr. Machine. Now prepare for a little more.

An interesting remix of “Pretend” has now taken form and is being called the Soul Clap Remix. The signature understated orchestral sound of the trio is colored with a house-y dance groove. You’re not quite sure what’s going on in the beginning but as the track settles, we find that it actually works. Here’s to a belated haunted house party, perhaps? We’re just saying, you have the choice and all since it’s a free download.
