Tune in to acid stag radio as we showcase some of the best tracks we’ve shared on the site over the last week, and be sure to follow our Spotify ‘page’ (not the playlist) to catch a brand new playlist every week.
Spotify is a fantastic platform not only for its accessibility and versatility for you to be able to listen to pretty much anything, anywhere, anytime, but it’s also great for independent artists because they actually collect revenue for each and every play their track gets. This is of course a very small amount, but the more times you play their music, the more money you can help them make – it’s a total win-win situation!
Baltimore x Los Angeles songwriter/producer Goldwash has finally released his highly anticipated ‘LDR EP’, featuring an exceptional collection of tracks that take the listener on a stimulating journey through the textural jazz-inspired/electro-R&B sounds of Goldwash’s existential-funk world, making this one of those albums that works really well for almost every occasion.
Go grab yourself a copy of ‘LDR EP’ now through iTunes or just stream-away on Spotify.
Brissy lads Odd Mob dropped a great new track over the weekend called ‘Down For Love’, which has them working with a mysterious newcomer who goes by the name Helen for her golden vocals, as they work them effortlessly well into their hip-hop/future-bass inspired sound.
Each week we collect a neat little assortment of weird, interesting and very cool remixes that just aren’t suitable for our Friday MixTapes, so we have the Non-MixTape Remix series set up to showcase some of these great remix creations.
Lupa J – Teeth and Loud Talk (elkkle Remix)
Loframes – Since You’ve Gone (ft. Anoraak) (Ride The Universe Remix)
I’m quite a fan of French producer LeMarquis, and when I saw this new collab track come in over the weekend I was very eager to spend some time with it today. He’s teamed up with a fellow Parisian producer Khamsin who I don’t know all that much about except that he has just released an ep called ‘Leaving’, and this LeMarquis collab is that ep’s title-track – it’s quite a beauty too
Khamsin’s ‘Leaving EP’ is available now via iTunes and on Spotify.
Orlando songstress DVWEZ is releasing a music video today for her track ‘Haunted’, which as you can see is cleverly coinciding with HALLOWEEN, and we are lucky enough to be premiering it for her.
Filmed, directed and edited by Joe DeSantis (of Megabyte Films), ‘Haunted’ comes alive with a certain eerie presence that makes you feel like you’re the ghost floating around the room watching DVWEZ move with a graceful elegance, while the beautiful cinematography make the perfect match for DVWEZ’s dreamy vocals and woozy atmospherics.
‘Haunted’ can be found on DVWEZ’s debut ep ‘Pastels’, which is available now from iTunes and on Spotify.
‘Make it Through’ is the latest electro-trap release from Oakland production duo Dimond Saints, as they give us another peek at their forthcoming album, ‘Prism In The Dark’.
Dimond Saints delve into a dark & moody world where pop, trap and electronica go hand-in-hand, as they weave together intricate layers of synth, bass and deep soulful vocals to create this hypnotic little treat.
Sunday Chills is the soundtrack to those lazy Sunday moments; whether you’re enjoying a good sleep-in, snuggling up to your your man or woman (or both if you’re that lucky), having a late brekkie, chilling on the sofa, or just simply doing nothing at all.

‘Find The Love’ is the brand new soul-funk jam from a producer out of Denver who goes by the name Late Night Radio. He’s teamed up with Borahm Lee for his mad key-skills, as he weaves those bright piano strums and vibrant synths through layers of funk, future bass and house production – it’s also just the first taste of Late Night Radio’s forthcoming album.
USA fans can catch Late Night Radio around the country from now right through until December for his massive ‘Fall 2016 Tour’ with his buddies Flamingosis on support – click the artwork for more details
I was pleasantly surprised when I found this little gem hiding out in my inbox today. ‘Flip Flops (Forever)’ is the debut single from a 17 year-old newcomer out of Los Angeles who goes by the name Jacuzzi Smith, and if this is any indication as to the quality of music this guy has in the works then we are certainly in for quite a treat – its woozy daydreaming sounds are doing some crazy good things to my senses
Jacuzzi Smith is so fresh he doesn’t even have his socials set up yet, so be sure to give his Soundcloud a follow so that you can keep an eye on him.
Each week I collect an assortment of tracks that have stood out to me in some unique kind of way, and come Friday I have quite a neat little collection of really cool, interesting and fun songs to share with you – you’ll get what I mean when you hear them
You gotta love a humpday gig, especially when it’s an artist you’ve been frothing over all year. Producer extraordinaire Kaytranada ventured to our shores for a sold-out headline tour this month, and last night was his second show in Melbourne – Phwoar! Kaytranada really is the man.
Gifting us with all the hits from his debut album ‘99.9%’, Kaytranada eased us into a groove that felt good on the body. As the set went on, little surprises came through his mixes including a bit of Janet Jackson, Flume, Rihanna, Solange and Michael Jackson. Sampling these artists gave us an indication as to who he draws inspiration from, and how widespread his love for music is. It’s hard to define what genre Kaytranada is but if you think about his playfulness with rhythms, it’d be sufficient to say he’s kind of alternative R&B with a hint of trap soul.
Given Kaytranda’s music isn’t the kind where you get fully turnt to sick drops, it may be hard for some to really get into it. Awkwardly, he made comment that we weren’t dancing enough but, I’d like to point out that the people over in my section definitely were, except for this couple who literally stood directly in front of me and didn’t even shimmy a shoulder. #MoveBitchGetOutTheWay Suffice to say they left before the set ended. I couldn’t stop moving. Kaytranada’s music flows through the body and even seeing him bust a few moves here and there, with a bit of freestyle choreography, firstly was really hot, but secondly, it made you vibe with him on that level.
Crowd favourites of the night included ‘Got It Good’, ‘Glowed Up’, ‘You’re The One’ and ‘Together’ but to be honest, the whole set was really strong and boy was he giving it 100%. The last half an hour was filled with heavy trap beats and I think that’s what the crowd were after, especially for a Wednesday night. It’s kind of weird to be out like this on a school night but it felt so liberating and naughty. Bring on more humpday gigs I say; best way to get you through the week and ready for the weekend.
