George Clanton - It Makes The Babies Want To Cry - acid stag

George Clanton – It Makes The Babies Want To Cry [New Single]

New York City retro-muso George Clanton (formerly known as Mirror Kisses) has a great new track to share with us this week called ‘It Makes The Babies Want To Cry’, and I honestly don’t think it will do what its title suggests.

It is the next taste of George Clanton‘s upcoming album 100% Electronica, and its smooth synth-rattled, retro-inspired sounds will have you bobbing along with a nice big smile and loads of happy feels.

100% Electronica will be released on September 25.

BASECAMP - Greater Than EP - acid stag

BASECAMP – Greater Than EP [Review + Stream]

words by Corey Brown

This is my first acquaintance with Nashville trio BASECAMP, but let’s begin this dissection by saying that it certainly won’t be my last. Greater Than is a pensive six-track assemblage, brought to you by Skrillex’s label OWSLA.

It’s hard put any one label on the record, and it really needs to be experienced to be understood; but for one, if you enjoy any left-of-field electronica, you need to get around this EP. Instrumentally, Greater Than is a bit wacky, rhythmically playful and harmonically genius, speckled with appropriately awkward synth chops and melodies. Gorgeous acoustic touches find their way onto the record as a moody string ensemble, a sneaky brass layer in “404”, and crisp, rapid acoustic plucks on the closing title-track.

Lead single and opening track ‘Watch My Back’ prepares you for an R&B record, but by the time you’re hit with ‘Surrender’, you realise you’re experience the work of three electronic producer masterminds. After all, vocalist Aaron Miller has a deep voice fit for R&B, but his sultry smooth tone also finds itself at home on the more audacious tracks, with their dizzying warped sounds.

Skrillex knows what’s good, and has consistently driven the frontier of electronic music. His faith now lies in BASECAMP; yours should too.

Rating: ★★★★☆

Equal - Shakedown (ft. Seja) - acid stag

Equal – Shakedown (ft. Seja) [New Music]

New York City producer Equal dropped a great new track last week called ‘Shakedown’ which featured the voice of Seja; lead singer of Brisbane synth-punk trio Sekiden.

The retro-dance grooves and classic horn sections blended with Seja‘s voice make for a really fun, refreshing listen, and it’s just the first taste of Equal‘s upcoming self-titled EP – which is due out over the coming months.

Give Equal a follow on the below to be kept in the loop on his upcoming EP.


Keys N Krates - I Know U - acid stag

Keys N Krates – I Know U [New Single]

Canadian trio Keys N Krates have a kick-ass new track to share with us this week called ‘I Know U’, which is just another taste of a new EP they plan on dropping over the coming months.

‘I Know U’ has a hypnotic manipulated vocal loop, big glitchy beats and grand synth sounds that echo out from deep within their cavernous production – it’s really hard not to be drawn into this one

Stay tuned for more news on the Keys N Krates EP, which will be seeing its release via Dim Mak Records.



Natasha Kmeto – Grind (ft. Tunde Adebimpe) - acid stag

Natasha Kmeto – Grind (ft. Tunde Adebimpe) [New Single]

‘Grind’ will be seen on Natasha Kmeto‘s upcoming album Inevitable, which is out on September 18 via Dropping Gems – pre-order it now from iTunes

Be smooth and groove.

Last week we shared a great new track from electro-pop brother-in-law duo WITHOUT, the second taste of a new EP they’ve just released called, Cheap Touch.

TELEPATHE - Destroyer - acid stag

TELEPATHE – Destroyer [Stream]

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Brooklyn synth-pop duo Telepathe, but they are back and they’ve brought with them a quite an impressive ten-track album called, Destroyer.

Back in 2009, Telepathe released their debut album which I was hooked on for quite some time, so the news of a new album from the ladies after a six year hiatus was pretty damn exciting, and they certainly have not disappointed – I reckon Destroyer is going to be a strong contender for my Top Album list this year

You can go grab yourself a copy of Destroyer now via iTunes.
