Lo Fi Frequencies 1996-2001 cover art

Australia's masters of chilltronica are back with a release of early recordings spanning 1996 to 2001.

In their own words...

"Much of the album was mastered from cassette tapes, so there's a bit of tape hiss and a few drop outs. The songs are somewhat imperfect, but they represent an important place in time for me and I hope you enjoy them. Have fun picking out early references for future songs!"

Stan Forebee, jazz musician and beatmaker, has released his first album "Jazz Sessions".

"Jazz Sessions" is a dedication & tribute to the legendary jazz pianist Bill Evans (who worked with musicians like Miles Davis, John Coltrane and repeatedly occurs on this record) and to Stan's father, who has had a great influence on his taste in jazz and classical music. The record has to be described as jazzy, soulful beats, and it's reminiscent of production from the likes of J Dilla, Madlib & Nujabes.

Austra - Painful Like (Official Video)

Austra have premiered the new video for their single 'Painful Like'. The second single off the album gets a 90s-style treatment.

Austra's Katie Stelmanis explains: ‘‘The main influence was 90's sci-fi movies like The Ninja Turtles, Super Mario Bros and Garbage Pail Kids where all the visual effects are done by hand and look really gross... ‘Painful Like’ is a song about living life in the sidelines.

Watch the video for 'Painful Like' below.

Luviia - P2P Feelings Ep

P2P Feelings Ep cover art

If you love instrumental Hip-Hop then you are in for a treat as Luviia, a Taiwanese beatsmith , releases his newest EP "P2P Feelings".

In the words of the label....

"Hailing from Kaohsiung, Taiwan, you could say that Luviia is one of the best kept secrets within the Asian region. In a country that is dominated by mainly Rap music, Luviia alongside a small group of artists, has been quietly honing his craft. Not surprising then, that he has been garnering a legion of followers in the global world of underground hip-hop. Sampling is his game, and sticking to that discipline has allowed him to carve out an unique feel to his sound. A sound that doesn't proclaim loudly to break boundaries, but always succeeds in giving you that raw unmistakable 'feel good' factor of wet claps, buttery kicks and lo-fi textures."
