Lido and Club Cheval‘s Canblaster teamed up to release modular heavy EP Superspeed. It is a 6 track feature of the future of electronic sounds. Both artists’ influences can be heard throughout, and they meld perfectly. When ‘Rush Hour’ was pre-featured, we knew the continued collaboration between these two would lead to something impressive.

 

Were we wrong? Stream the EP below and support the future. Check out the ‘Making of’ video to see how they did it.

One of the reasons we love boutique collectives is their structure gives each artist the freedom to create forward thinking sounds under a loose canopy of similarity. Carefullly chaotic cuts and choppy sampling tied into melodic rhythms shadowed by gamey, anime style is where shy guy collective Pure Aesthete thrives.

 

2015’s Volume One compilation showcases their roster’s wide ranging capabilities well. It has soundtracked our world in cel shading. Keep an ear on these guys; they’re changing the cyberspace sound scene.

TESCO – Remember

No Rome – Trust Issues (I’ve Been Careful My Whole Life)

Along with Soulection, Flow-Fi was one of our collectives to watch last year and they have yet to disappoint. Co-founder Fortune just blew us out of the water with Venha Comigo. The smooth beat and steady structure keeps true to the label name. The horns, winds, and samples just add to the mellow soulful style we’ve grown to love.

 

The freshness of this EP puts it up there as a contender for the year. Name your price on Bandcamp and come get lost in the moods with us.

In the realm of female producers, Alison Wonderland holds her own as one of the more badass girls in the game. With a rather prolific career learnt from a background in classical, a coming of age in rock, a solo move to DJing in front of thousands, and an extremely anticipated vocal-featured LP on the way, she’s more than earned her place on this lineup.

 

Australia can already attest to her high-energy sets (we had major FOMO during the Wonderland Warehouse Project). But having seen her at a secret house party in LA, we can say that she puts a very exacting effort into keeping the room alive. And that was just a house party. Imagine the painstaking care she’s putting into her Coachella appearance. Suffice it to say, don’t be surprised when she blows your mind on Saturday. We’ll be right there with you.
