Snacs – Weird Ontology EP
18 April | | instrumental

You can’t help but admire artists who release new music on their own terms. No hype, no hints, no bullshit. Just quality music. And that happens to be the case with experimental New York producer Snacs’ latest project, Weird Ontology. The six track EP includes previously released single, Art Shadow, along with a few more ambient gems, all of which can be streamed below.

Different Sleep – Conflict (Single)
16 April | | instrumental

With the release of his new EP right around the corner, Chicago’s Different Sleep has liberated the title track for streaming. Like the first single, Conflict is perfect for late night reflection or just plain relaxing. Friends of Friends describes the EP as “a testament to the concept of heartache resulting in the creation of ideas that could only be evoked during emotional turmoil.” Deep stuff. Hit the link below to preorder a copy.

Hokes – Storm EP
16 April | | instrumental

Less than a week after premiering lead single, WHIPIT, Alloy-X unleashes the latest EP from New Mexico’s Hokes. The five track Storm EP is his best work to date in my book, as well as a testament to why him and the rest of the stacked Alloy-X crew are worth keeping an eye on. Grab the entire EP for free through the link below.

Yung Satan & B. Lewis – Dreamy (Single)
9 April | | instrumental

Two of my favorite West coast producers at the moment, B. Lewis and Yung Satan (M|O|D), have teamed up for a crazy new single. The thumping Dreamy brings the best out of both producers, resulting in a high energy party tune right in time for summer. Stream and download Dreamy below.

With a only a few weeks until the release of his first full length LP, Aberdeen producer and Tuff Wax boss Lockah lets another single loose.
