It’s been a long time since we heard from Danny Brown, then out of something like a 90’s VHS acid trip, Danny Brown releases a new track and visuals for his first single in years,’When It Rain’.
“With the blessing of my Fools Gold family by my side, I’m excited to be working with Warp on new material. They’re music fans to the same high degree I am and I’m looking forward to breaking some rules together” said Danny Brown in a statement.
Phantogram – ‘You Don’t Get Me High Anymore’
Going from “Wake up, You are getting high on your own supply” to “You don’t get me high anymore” Phantogram is back with another reference to addiction and self-control in their newest sound. Last LP was indeed a change of tunes and attitude, it was music that will hype you up enough to start a revolution in your gold shoes and glitter make up. But from this new installation we are sensing a more melodramatic type of hype, as in the revolution is over and back to real life. Parts of the track are soft and sensitive, then steps back into an upper beat line, giving us a very diverse sound.
Ryan Hemsworth – ‘Burying the Sun’
Continuing with his world class production, Ryan Hemsworth comes back with a Hemsworth like sounding track with a light hearted melody and uplifting bass line. The track is the second release from his upcoming LP.
Lily Elise – ‘Lay me Down’ feat Made in LA

Last time we heard from Lily Elise was a year ago in a Dillon Francis track, but this time around we get to see a completely different side of the Bay Area based artist. ‘Lay Me Down’ is one of the most silky and smooth electronic R&B tracks we’ve heard this year. It sticks to the very basics of the genre and we can’t stop playing the track.
Joey Bada$$ – Devastated
Pro-Era on the rise! Devastated is a track about overcoming doubt and desolation with a feel good beat behind it, it’s indeed an inspirational track to those artists on the rise looking for a little reassurance.
ZHU – ‘Generationwhy’
Glad to see someone doing the feel-good electronic sound – ZHU has yet released another dreamy track with that inspiring walk in the park vibe.
Palm Honey is the like that local band crush everyone needs to have, you ran into their shows because of friends one day and you danced your butt off, now you follow them everywhere. Their psych-pop sound are the perfect hispter party soundtrack.
