Beat Lab Reviews – Fresh Tracks of the Week September 21, 2018

Beat Lab Reviews – Fresh Tracks of the Week September 21, 2018 The end of summer is finally here so we have some tracks to wish you the best as we move into fall. For everyone living in Los Angeles this reluctant change in the seasons is still granting us 90-degree heat but soon enough the chill will follow, so until then enjoy some of the fresh tracks below! We’ve got some summer bangers, electronic R&B, Indie Pop magic, some evocative Trip-Hop, and an awesome live-rendition video.     Netsky – Tequila Limonada ft. A.Chal A cool car, cool clothes, cool hair, and a cool beat. The music video for Netsky’s new release Tequila Limonada certainly has the cool factor in big supply. The video features a party at a midcentury Spanish mansion located in the Hollywood Hills and evokes the perfect feelings as we all kiss summer goodbye. The editing on the video

Beat Lab Reviews – Fresh Tracks of the Week September 14, 2018

Beat Lab Reviews – Fresh Tracks of the Week September 14, 2018 Worldy atmospheres, funky bananas, nostalgic utopias, trippy lo-fi rhythms, and minimalist house tracks with smooth rhymes are what is in store for this week’s Fresh Tracks. Take a listen below and read while you’re at it!   Mazoulew – Pangea The title track from Mazoulew’s new Pangea EP is a four-minute atmospheric adventure that takes the listener to soaring highs and kickin’ lows. Mazoulew strikes a balance between peaceful and chaotic with the syncopated percussion patterns throughout the track. While unique in its own right the track harkens to artists in similar soundscapes – Bonobo and Four Tet are two that come to mind. A lush vocal chop echoes in the background while beautifully layered synths and bells grace our ears with melody. Finally, the guiding bass sitting below cradles us into a state of bliss.     Astens & Mr

The submissions keep rolling in so as we try to keep up we’ll be rolling the ones we like best out to you in this weekly format.

So keep on checking in and enjoying the Fresh Tracks!   Kyson – Every High (An-ten-nae Remix) Bay Area native An-ten-nae remixes Every High by Kyson. Fans can usually count on An-ten-nae’s signature Acid Crunk style to bring that low-down-dirty-bass, however, this time around it plays a far more subtle role in the song and it totally works. As it remains laid-back throughout the song

In the meantime here are some more tracks, they’re fresh, and they’re waiting to be heard!   Carter Wilson – Neoteny Looping (prod. Erameld) Neoteny Looping is a multi-part track that features a couple songs, it really comes alive at the 2-minute mark with an awesome flute lead and a George Carlin sample running along in the back. Carter Wilson’s vocals are soothing and rough at the same time, which help evoke feelings of comfort and urgency supported in his lyricism. To top it off, the album was Mixed AND Mastered by him.
