Martin $ky – Everywhere But Here EP
4 March |

Chicago rapper/producer Martin $ky has been hard at work on a new body of work for the last year and the final product is finally here. Premiered by Complex, the ten-track Everywhere But Here EP is entirely produced by $ky, with a few key guest appearances from Saba, Rockie Fresh, Young Chop and Casey Veggies. Looking back on the introduction piece we did on $ky back in early 2013, it’s not hard to hear the progression in his music. Head below to stream/download $ky’s EP in full and watch the video for the Saba-assisted cut, Reach.

Kodak To Graph – Fake Murblock x Los Angeles (Singles)
28 February |

Originally from Pensacola, Florida, LA based producer Kodak To Graph has become known for his high energy remixes and overall futuristic sound. With the release date for his debut album, Isa, set for March 10th, KTG teamed up with The Fader and Complex to premiere two new songs throughout the month of February. First came Los Angeles, a mellow, sample-based tune with more layers than an onion. Then there’s Fake Murblock, the epic, slow-building second single that was released earlier this week. Between the two tracks, Isa has quickly made its way to the top of my list of most anticipated March releases.

Sam Gellaitry – Short Stories EP
25 February |

For their first proper release of the year, Soulection turns to 18 year old Scottish producer, Sam Gellaitry. The beats on his debut EP are certainly unconventional, helping to redefine the way one may classify electronic music going forward. Elements of hip-hop, R&B, and deep house are present throughout, making it difficult to put Sam’s style in a single category. I just call it good music. Stream and purchase a copy of his Short Stories EP through the link below.

Eaves – Projector (Single)
19 February |

XLR8R debuted another new song from New York producer Eaves’ forthcoming Hush Hush Records debut. Projector is much more experimental than the EP’s title track, which is a testament to the producers versatility. Part industrial rave tune, part ambient noise, Projector twists and transforms several times through out its 4 and 3/4 minutes. Hit the link below to preorder Eaves’ Hue EP ahead of its March 23rd release date.

JMSN – Foolin’ (Video)
18 February |

The videos from JMSN’s Blue Album keep coming in, this time for hidden cut, Foolin’. Not sure if this holds true for anyone else, but with each video release, I gain even more appreciation for the accompanying song. The correlation between a song and a strong visual is undeniable, with JMSN’s recent campaign as proof. Watch the Entertainment Weekly premiered video for Foolin’ above and pick up a copy of the Blue Album through the link below.

Inc. – A Teardrop From Below (Single)
18 February |

Since releasing their debut LP in 2013, LA brothers Inc. have parted ways with 4AD and released their first piece of new music independently. New single A Teardrop From Below is a gentle, building ballad that picks up right where No World left off well over a year ago. No word on what’s next for the duo, but A Teardrop From Below is available for purchase on iTunes through the link below.
