Indie Playlist: Sept. 24, 2012

O HI glad you’re back for more Indie Playlist. Check out deez presents Sweetest Drip brought to your door!

via it doesn’t look like it but my tail’s waggin’ doe

01. Moullinex – Kassette

Check out Português DJ/producer Moullinex with his latest maravilhoso releases! Cool thing about brus like Moullinex, they’ll play tracks like Kassette at numerous live settings and give ‘em away for free-fitty as a “thank you for chillin’ hard with me and I hope we can continue to have nice things together” gift.

If you’ve had any inkling towards the nu-disco & house scene, you’ve probably seen his name pop up here and there on original productions and remixes from equally awesome artists. Moullinex is finally prepping his debut album Flora, due out late October via must-peep indie label Gomma Records.

02. Sango – Da Rocinha

Ever since Diplo, Jonas Rathsman, and other like-minded producers spread knowledge about Brazilian favela booty beats (baile funk AKA funk carioca) throughout DJ/production culture, it’s hard to stop fantasizing about base-jumping off of Cristo Redentor drenched in celebratory 2014 (World Cup)/2016 (Olympics) caipirinhas.

I can’t explain how much I’ve been wanting these sounds to come together. I don’t remember exactly how I found out about Sango (Sweetest Drip OG I’m lookin’ at chu ♥), but I’m sho as fuq glad I’ve got these beats in my collection now. Behold: 808-driven/no-hands clapping dance music excellence.

“After spending time just searching for music outside the US, I luckily landed on some of the most influential, unique and most developed sound that has been out for quite some time. The sound I speak about is Brazil’s own, baile funk or what they call it, “funk carioca”. This mixtape is more of a sound study of baile funk. I felt this sound is still somewhat untouched in some music scenes. I wanted to give my interpretation of the music, and was also curious of how baile funk’s distinct loops and provoking sounds would sound layer under my ideas. This EP is loud and real.

The name Da Rocinha simply means, in Brazilian Portuguese, “Of Rocinha”. Rocinha is one of the most popular favelas in Brazil, which is located in Rio De Janeiro. Rocinha pretty much birth the baile funk sound and what I want to show is how Rocinha influenced me.”Sango

03. Hemingway – Joy Stick

It’s inevitable that music makers who grew up playin’ vidya gamez will end up injecting those lovable/addicting 8-64 bit ditties into today’s production standard. There are many contemporary artists trying to conceptualize/personalize tunes based on their favorite video game soundtracks; Groundislava and Noms especially come to mind outside of the chiptune genre.

Our bru Hemingway is no exception with his latest tune Joy Stick, which I could see used as a perfect BGM for an avant-garde porno or a simply a go-to track for when you wanna kick back and let these funky bleep bloops soothe your soul.

04. Jonas Rathsman – W4W

Since summertime nearing its end according to back to school sales and the sudden lack of massive music festivals on a moment’s notice, might I suggest pulling out that beach chair for a couple more uses?

W4W by Jonas Rathsman is an essential farewell-to-summer tune, especially with its luscious steel-drum assisted buildup and signature vibetastic vocals. If anything’s troubling you these days — like if you couldn’t finish that beautiful bb tan in time (ooooooof baby baby) — maxchill with an artist who’ll never do you dirt.

05. Knxwledge – klemintine|taype

Lemme end with a kiss on da forehead for all my beautiful bbs out there. Finna spread that peace, love, and Knxwledge.

lovin’ u~ lovin’ u~ 어떡해 what should I do?
