sonic4

In partnership with Giant Step, resident compilation master Maiya Norton today serves the world up with the long-awaited Sonic Boom Vol. 4!

Vol. 4 features lots of go-to indie faves, including Iman Omari, MoRuf, BOSCO, Muhsinah, THEESatisfaction, Def Sound, Nikko Gray, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, and Coultrain.

We’ve also got up-and-comers like Mndsgn, Jessica Newry, Shi Wisdom, Kalani Trinidad, JusMoni, Joya Mooi, and Byron The Aquarius showing us what they’re workin with.

Stand outs include spine-tingling opener “Prayed For” by Iman Omari, the breathy and sensual “Slippin” by BOSCO, the deliciously layered and melodic “Queen County” by THEESatisfaction, the soft and lulling “Beyond of You” by Joya Mooi, and the groovy “All In” by Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.

While much of the collection showcases dug up gems and lesser known tracks, we are also proud to have Sonic Boom Vol. 4 be the place Muhsinah premiered the spirited “L.M.O.” (Giant Step Mix), a version of “Let Me Out” off her upcoming March album, Amazing.

Hit play already, and make your week that much better.

New Track: Sonnymoon – “Magicians” (Mndsgn Remix)

 

A couple weeks ago, Sonnymoon dropped their 2012 EP. And without skipping a beat, they’ve already unveiled a remix! Below, find the Mndsgn remix of “Magicians,” which reinterprets the well known Brazilian tune, “The Girl From Ipanema.” Loving the juxtaposition of Anna’s quirky vocals against the slinky tropical track.
