Mecca:83 (aka Rise) is a Manchester, UK based producer, known for his many instrumental releases, great hip-hop beats, and some amazing remixes. Ain’t Done Too Bad is a compilation of artist’s best beats and collaborations to date, all to celebrate his amazing ten years of music making. But as much as it is a celebration it is also a good-bye gift for his fans, as Mecca:83 announcement of retiring his music career surfaced just yesterday.
A lot can be said about Caspian’s music. That it is immense – you realize how music can be as big as the universe and the listener, a mere speck in it. That it is powerful – that instruments can go beyond what it is supposed to sound and surprise even the musician. That it is moving – even without words. All of these are on full display at the Live at Old South Church album.
Sometimes, all we need is a chill mood setter to go with those introspective moments.
The enigmatic Psymun‘s the guy for the job. At only 21 years old “who smokes crack everyday”, he’s definitely on a creative high (got the pun?) as his sixth EP just rolled out last December.
If you don’t know which way to go, you might want to try heading to the ‘north end’.
Excuse the pun, but rock music never sounded so good without vocals as North End‘s newest release, Cognoscere. As the Latin word for “to know” or “to learn”, the 20-minute EP definitely serves as a solid introduction for the act’s first-time listeners.
If you are looking for a soulful, rich, and inspiring instrumental sounds that will help to smooth out your day, then we have something just for you. Stefano Mocini's A Cat Playing is one of the most melodious piano only compilations I have stumbled upon in a long time.
With each track outperforming the previous one, A Cat Playing is one of the few albums where pin pointing the favorite song is nearly impossible; even after few long listens. The melodies brilliantly flow and connect each of the tracks; and all this is managed with just a single instrument.
It's Saturday night, and you're feeling a bit too adult to go out clubbing until dawn, but way too young to stay at home and do nothing. Smooth Situations is the perfect kind of music for a weekend full of adventures and secrets - it has a laid-back groove that invites you into its mystery, without giving too much away. This is great news for people who like dance music, without necessarily wanting to dance all the time.
