Exclusive Release: ‘Sonic Boom Vol. 2′ (Compiled by Maiya Norton) + Download


First time around, miss Maiya Norton blew us away with her selection on our first exclusive release from the Sonic Boom series. While many better known names peppered the the first compilation, on Sonic Boom Vol. 2, Maiya shows us that her musical fluency goes deep and digs up some hidden gems.

Of the artists that folks may be familiar with, Suzi Analogue offers a melodic, lulling instrumental aptly named “TheEndOfTheNite” and our homies The Stuyvesants share another vintage soul epic called “Machine Love.” Other standouts for us are Bay Area electro-soul troupe The Seshen, rapper Eccentric, and Milwaukee producer Haz Solo.

Really, the whole thing plays out beautifully, never quite staying the same in style or tempo yet tying together into a tasteful journey of modern soul, electronic, hip-hop, and dance music.

Video: Analogue Monsta – “Time To”

As we continue to clutch our britches in anticipation of Tokimonsta and Suzi Analogue’s collaborative Analogue Monsta project to drop, we will happy devour anything these crafty lovelies throw us. And here we have it – the video for “Time To.”

This isn’t some casual ish. Nope. It’s near catastrophically hypnotic and all consuming with its “na-na-na boo-boo” -esque swinging melody and psychedelic visuals. You might drool a little (because that’s how strong the sensory overtake is). We totally want to be a funky 8-bit-ish stick figure chilling with our guitar amongst sunflowery spinning cogs.

Ah, how we love our space cadet musicians. Philadelphia based vocalist and beatmaker Suzi Analogue brings us some of the best in slinky space tunes in her hazy new video for “The Thing.”

Like Tiombe Lockhart and Georgia Anne Muldrow? You’ll dig this. Fiending for more already? We understand. Check the links below to grab Suzi’s NNXT EP that dropped earlier this month.

And here’s something you may not be ready for: Suzi and TOKiMONSTA recently completed a demo for their collaborative project, The Analogue Monsta. Let’s just say that it’s very difficult for us to contain ourselves right now.
