Cassie Marin’s “Disrepect” is our favorite track to date from the L.A.-based artist. We love the track’s spare production, use of space, and cool main piano chords set against its busier rhythmic bits. A+ from us.

yot club – no way !

We’re into yot club’s recent track “no way!” The track is set around a deep-in-the-PA vocal put to stabs of reverbed guitar and a 1-2 chug main rhythm pattern. It’s a spaced out bit of dreamy lo-fi pop that deserves your listening attention below.

AB001 – Beauty Sleep

We like this one quite a bit. “Beauty Sleep” is the dreamy new one from AB001. On the track, a beautiful and spare main vocal drifts and lilts in and out a mix of quiet drums and lo-fi sonics creating a cool spacey hymnal quality to the track. We can dig it.
