Sweater Beats | Download Cloud City FREE

Sweater Beats’ [Antonio Cuna] forthcoming EP, Cloud City, is full of high-energy R&B beats we’ve come to love from him. In this EP, he sends us soaring by lifting the dreamy beats with aerated synths and piano riffs. The added vocals from soulstress allie on ‘Dark Matter’ are a welcome bonus. Here’s to hoping this beat-maker’s future reaches new heights as well.

The Free EP comes out via HW&W tomorrow [10|28]. Get it, and then be sure to catch him at Day of the Dead this weekend!

Sweater Beats – Cloud City EP

Faces. | Soundcloud

UK newcomer Faces. dropped 2 remixes in the past week and they are summer sun soulful. Not much is known about this producer yet, but if this is any indicator of what he’s capable of then we’re definitely gluing our ears to the digital ground.

Get at Eton Messy for the free Dee-El.

Tep No | Soundcloud

Tep No combines essences of deep house and dream pop to create some seriously hypnotic flows to back his rhythm-and-bluesy voice, which maintains a sort of airy scratchiness. While the lyrics are relatively melancholy, the combination of everything pans out oddly soothing.

His first release, ‘Promises’, was a hit among those in the know. It brought to mind a more electronic Lana. We waited to see if he could carry the rep and his subsequent 2 releases definitely indicate he’s onto something good. You can download all his work for free off his SoundCloud.

Marian Hill | Soundcloud | Buy Play

Marian Hill is a duo out of Philadelphia; they are joined live by a bassist/saxist. We had the privilege of catching them at School Night and were immediately addicted. Jeremy Lloyd controlled the sway with finger-tapped drums and samples on an MPK49. Steve Davit had the room swooning to jazzy saxophone and bass. Samantha Gongol’s bewitching, bluesy voice and seductive movements hypnotized the crowd.

Marian Hill is simple and sultry electro-soul and R&B fit for dim rooms and whisky. When it comes to production, less is definitely more with Marian Hill.

Chiefs | Soundcloud

In less than six months, rookie Melbourne producer Chiefs has managed to release a debut EP, some singles, and quite a few remixes including Drake, Robin Thicke, Major Lazer, Paces and most recently Crooked Colours. He draws sonically from Hip Hop, Trap and Jersey Club but still manages to keep it danceable. The R&B samples, heavy bass, and melodic synths come together for a trifecta of bassy goodness. Having been featured on both the first compilation album by Pilerats Records and DIE HIGH Records’ DIEHIGHlights and being championed by the likes of Ta-Ku and Stwo, big things are all but assured.

PillowTalk | Buy Je Ne Sais Quoi

Wolf+Lamb artists PillowTalk believe in sexy-smooth; 2011’s The Come Back exposed me to that. Their recent (and first) LP Je Ne Sais Quoi is a fusion of R&B, disco, house, dance, pop, and techno [D.A.G.!] that has surpassed all my expectations and has taken over our ears here at C+A+D. It’s been nearly 2 months of listening and we’re still finding out why we love it so much.

I like to think it is due to the heart-warming dreaminess in each track. Opener, ‘Our Story’, sets it up perfectly – this album is a soulful sonic dance adventure. The stories may differ, but the feel-good soul is absolute. They’ve put Je Ne Sais Quoi up for your free streaming pleasure on SoundCloud. Show the crew some love and buy it!

While you’re here, check out one of my all-time favourite mixes too.
