Boeboe: El Dorado

Boeboe‘s El Dorado is an EP that is as bouncy and nerve jangling as a speeding in a stolen Porsche. Whether that’s your idea of fun or not, no one could ever resist dancing to this EP. Feel Me is dominated with beats that would make you succumb into night-lights of partying and adventure.

Cleft: Whale Bone

Try to imagine a fourteen minute song made by a drum machine and then try to compress it into a three minute soundtrack. That is what Cleft is. A 2-piece turbo-progressive band that makes massive instrumental music using guitars and some drums.

AstroLust: Illusions

Illusions is a world where only beats, rhythm and dub matter. Created by Dominic H. Francisco aka AstroLust, the album throbs and teases with various triphop dub sounds. There's really not that much info about the artist available online but one thing's for sure, his capacity to capture this cool and dark atmosphere by manipulating samples, synths and instruments is praiseworthy. This is the fourth release from the artist since June 2012 and it seems listeners can expect some more until the year ends.

Birdview Crew: June EP – a massive collection of interesting beats

Birdview Crew is a musical project made up of some of the most creative underground beat makers and producers around. The collective promises to drop an album every month and for the month of June 2012, they're delivering this instrumental ambient beauty. The compilation, aptly titled June, features 22 tracks. Showcasing a mix of dub, techno, ambient, electronica, fusion, hiphop and experimental; it's one lively mix that's perfect for the ears.

United Noise: Remix Theory

The album was released back in 2011 and is described by the creators as "a remix album from a bunch of mental electro industrial techno heads who live in Scotland."

Syberia: Drawing a Future

Post-rock enthusiasts just might find a favorite in Spanish band, Syberia. Made up of Xavi Forne, Oscar Linares, Kandro Dillinger, Carlos Alonso and Oscar Caselles, these guys create a thick wall of instrumental rock that will keep you warm in the dead of winter. Gathering influences from bands like Isis, Tool, Mogwai, Mastodon and Caspian, they create a hypnotic layer of sound in each cut. Drawing a Future is the band’s debut compilation and was released last September 2012 at a name-your-price download at BandCamp.
