Electronic Music Round Up Early 2015

Music

There is always a lack of new releases at the beginning of the year so my album round up will be delayed until next month when there is more out. I thought I’d take this time to get caught up with some of the recent dance music releases and let you know what I found.

I’ve been through a bunch of the new releases on Red Eye Records and put together a list of my favourites. Check them out below with a brief description, a link to listen and a link to buy. Here is a Youtube playlist with a track from every release,

Ohbliv – Blk Love Frequency (a)

Ohbliv has a similar sound to Knxwledge, producing instrumental tracks packed full of clattering beats and soul samples.

Open Mike Eagle – Dark Comedy

Hellfyre Club have had a phenomenal year in 2014 and this album was probably the strongest of the 4 that they produced. A wonderfully eclectic album that somehow manages to stay coherent despite switching between funny, insightful, macabre, pessimistic and silly. But most importantly this album sounds magnificent.

People Under The Stairs – 12 Step Program

The B-boy’s favourite hip-hop legends come back with more fun tracks to get you dancing.

Buy it here

Plus – Rapid Eye Movement

17 year old duo drop a fantastic album full of jazzy vibes and complex flows. These guys are going to be really amazing with a few more years of experience.

Prince Po – Animal Serum

It’s a travesty that Prince Po is so forgotten. Having been part of the esteemed Organized Konfusion and releasing the exceptional “The Slickness” Prince Po should be cemented as one of the greats but even when teaming with super producer Oh No, the wily veteran still gets slept on. If you know who Prince Po and Oh No are you need no convincing here but if you haven’t then stop what you’re doing and get educated.
