Back with the third installment of “Sounds From The Astral Plane.” We missed last week, but we’re back to satiate your thirst for the best tunes from the independent/underground worlds. Enjoy.
Stream: Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – “Tapes & Money (Soundcloud edit)”
First off, we have a preview of the brand new single by everyones favorite Jurassic raver, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. The track, titled “Tapes & Money” will not not be released for another two months, but this three minute preview will have to do for now. The Oxford native turns in another solid effort here with another feel good track with some bouncy synth stabs and a catchy chord progression. “Tapes & Money” will be released in April followed by TEED’s debut album in May.
Stream: Shlohmo: “wen uuu (Salva Remix)”
Friends of Friends label mates Shlohmo and Salva team up for this remix in anticipation of their upcoming European tour and the Tuesday release of Shlohmo’s Vacation EP. Here, Salva takes the ultra-smooth, meandering “wen uuu” and turns it a completely different animal. Maintaining the pitter patter sounds and the chopped vocals, Salva adds a nice kick and some futuristic synths to create an uptempo banger. Cop Vacation on Tuesday and check out Salva or Shlohmo on tour if you’re in the EU.
Amid all the hype surrounding D’Angelo’s return from his decade long absence, a bevy of remixes from across the electric music spectrum have started popping up. My favorite so far has to be from the Night Slugs head honcho himself, L-Vis 1990. L-Vis takes D’Angelo’s “Untitled” and turns it into a subtle house track.
Stream/Download: JJ DOOM – “Cockney Rhyme And Slang” Feat. Dels
JJ DOOM is the collaboration between experimental hip hop producer Jneiro Jarel and the legendary MF Doom. Several months ago, Dave Sitek released a remix to the duos track “Rhymin Slang” and set the indie and hip hop world ablaze. Now, Grime MC Dels has added a verse to the track to add another dimension to an already hot song.
Happy February friends.
