Girl Unit is in Hysterics February 6, 2015
As far as second acts go, Girl Unit's re-invention as Hysterics sets the gold standard for producer seeking to shed their old sounds without losing what made their music so special.
Brian Josephs is budgeting now for a Boosie guest feature. If you’ve been reading think pieces and reviews on LA-based R&B artist Kelela, chances are you’ve seen the name Brandy thrown around quite a bit. It’s not a forced comparison either; Kelela herself said, “I would like to do Brandy but weirder.” The two are […]
Bok Bok and Kerala go R&G August 9, 2013
Son Raw seen it like 27 inch Zenith – believe it. I called it two years ago: instrumental Grime is having a moment. While Big Room House continues to make inroads into the UK pop charts, the underground is erupting with new talent finding inspiration in the twisted synths and broken drum patterns perfected by […]

Meanwhile, the Main Attraktionz have been […]

Luckily, Egyptrixx (real name David Psutka), has found […]
Sach O’s all about some hardcore (yeah he likes it raw) I’m a little torn here. Against all odds, Jacques Greene manages to rescue straight-up deep House, a genre of music I’ve always identified with jet-setting human beings best not urinated on in cases of spontaneous combustion, and pushes it into a bass music framework. […]

Sach O gets mad when people talk about “Canadian” electronic music – as if the whole country’s supposed to sound the same.
