I dont like posting Kanye... and technically this is all Charlie Wilson's vocals over some old soul music samples... less Kanye the better. Glad Solidisco was able to snipe the best and strongest part of the track into a french nuwave disco track.

Skipping thru the latest hypem charts, and I get down to Tycho's new single, "Awake"... and it reminds of something... something familiar, and warm and comforting. Like a still fall night tucked in a heavy wool blanket... isolated from any business or stress from work or the city. A place that you can escape.
So I'm not surprised to see that the San Francisco producer's new track was released under one of our favorite indie labels, Ghostly International. If you're into dream pop, shoe gaze, chill wave, etc... listen.

What can I say about RAC... almost everything they've ever released has been on my top10 hit list. And now they're collaborating with Kele Okereke (lead man from Bloc Party and likely the most recognizable voice in all of british indie rock). Winnarz!

If Troy wasn't in this track... I'd still think it was pretty good. Dont know anything about Jhene Aiko, but her voice is sooo there. And the track is sooo here.

One of my favorite movies of the last few years was largely credited to its amazing sountrack. Drive used an intense and melodic collection of pure synth electro as both a catalyst for its riveting action, as well as its whimsical scenes of nothing-is-more-improtant-than-this-one-person-beside-me-right-now-and-nothing-will-ever-change-that.

Porter Robinson started his ascent around the time when my blog went more-or-less offline for a while. There's nothing I can say here about the young gun that you probably dont already know, other than I haven't really given the chap a good listen. I'm loving this track though, so perhaps that will change moving forward.
