New Zealand's Ladi6 this week dropped the hypnotizing "Slow Ride" as she prepares for her upcoming album, Automatic.
The track reminds us of some early 2000s trip-hop as Detroit and New Zealand intersect on this Jeedo production featuring the indestructible Invincible on flows.
Automatic drops September 17.
Fool's Gold act Party Supplies releases a vintage electro dance tune called "Beautiful Girl" and movement is the only fitting response.
For the upcoming Tempo Dreams Vol. 2 compilation put together by Teeko and B. Bravo, Bastard Jazz has released a groovy 2-track sampler. The first track is a free download and features Bay Area duo Starship Connection consisting of Teeko and B. Bravo; "We Can Go All Night" glides easy with soft vocals and slinky boogie embellishments. Next is the slightly more upbeat and funky "Dreamin' of You" with Bay Area producer and vocalist K-Maxx and its incredibly addictive swing.
Our favorite Canadian songstress, A K U A, teams up with Rookie for a cover of "Nothing Compares 2 U." Taking an ambient and minimal approach, the track is available as a free download for 24 hours, so go grab it.
Since last month's release of her debut EP, One's Company, A K U A has been grabbing the attention of listeners worldwide. A couple weeks ago, she opened for Solange in Montreal. The vibe was right, and she is now joining Solange on the road as a backup singer. The first gig was Pitchfork Music Festival last weekend. Atta girl, A K U A.
