just cuz we were a bit more quiet around here for a while, don’t think we stopped listening. arca is one of the hardest-working and most exciting producers in new york right now, one of the brightest talents on uno‘s bustling roster, and going to be producing tracks for all your favorite vocalists soon.
new one “manners” is an emotional stunner. #feelings
“little now a lot” is pretty mind-boggling, completely switching up at :50. this one is off baron libre which was a free uno giveaway for a time before the page was replaced with a new release – today’s equivalent of going out of print?
there’s also an appropriately funny/twisted music video for “ass swung low”
stretch 2 will drop august 6th via uno.
catch arca at our party, dreams 3.0 in brooklyn on 7.29, alongside pictureplane, grimes, and myself.

here’s an artist we fully support who too few people in the states seem to know about: cooly g produces slick next level beats and sings on them and she’s signed to hyperdub and a badass. and dj rashad is a fan.
as soon as the synths kicked in on her gorgeous single “landscapes” i knew the situation was serious.
her new record playin’ me is one of the nicest i’ve heard in recent memory. seek that.
we’ve been delayed on posting this on the blog-blog for a while now, but traxman’s mind of traxman lp is a juke masterpiece and one of the best albums we’ve heard so far this year. the chicago veteran has been important in the evolution of chicago house into juke, and touches on so many styles and insane drum patterns and sample flips it can be dizzying, but as a whole the record is a serious psychedelic slice of pure soul music from the future.
let these amazing exclusive tracks traxman hooked us up with warm you up for his set tonight (fri the 25th) at 285 kent alongside Howse, Octo Octa, Ñaka Ñaka, The Range, and yours truly. come get your mind reprogrammed to 160bpm, or as traxman said, it’s like you’re missing “ringling brothers, the greatest show on earth” check it out.

premiere: new video from san gabriel aka la beatsmith butchy fuego. featuring ample lazers, fog and bass, this is definitely weird magic, and just in time for 4/20.
one of our favorite tracks by one of our favorite artists gets the video treatment. this track appears on huerco’s upcoming no jack ep on wicked bass. clip by the man himself, who also just dropped the 7th installation of his all-edits secret musik series (more on that later)
this edit was made while working on this mix for okayafrica.
