End of the month: 8 tracks that deserve your attention

Posted

Words By: Knife Magazine

For the April edition of our EOTM feature, we present you with seven new releases that may, or may not have gone under your radar. Either way, we definitely feel like these tracks are worth another share.

(Remember that Bandcamp this Friday once again will be waiving its revenue shares, which means 100% of your purchase will go directly to the labels, which means it is a great time to support independent, local artists. Check some of them out below <3)

IB101 - Goody Two Shoes

While smoking a spliff on a roof, IB101 dances around in a delicate white dress and encourages you to do whatever you want. A perfect track for a summer which we most likely are going to spend outside. Genuine pleasure.

Dua Lipa · Physical (Erika de Casier Remix)

Dua Lipa - Physical (Erika de Casier Remix)

Very surreal to see local producer, singer, and songwriter​, Erika de Casier, reworking the latest single of global pop-phenomenon, Dua Lipa. Erika takes the 80's inspired power-pop anthem down a notch, by using her signature broken beats and piano sounds, to create an excellent stripped back version.

Axces Recordings · Popmix - Euro Knallers

Popmix - Euro Knallers

Euphoric, trance-esque roller from Copenhagen's own, Popmix, taken from the brand new 'Pool Device' compilation from local techno crew, Axces Recordings. The whole compilation is officially out tomorrow 1st of May, which is a great day to show support​ since Bandcamp once again will be waiving its revenue share on all purchases.

Minais B - Ceremony

Accompanied by a fitting video by Glen Bay Grant 'Ceremony' is the latest single from Copenhagen producer Minais B's new album, 'Quiet Bloom', released recently on his own imprint, Anyines. 'Ceremony' blends orchestral elements with rumbling drones and razor-sharp synthesized sounds, drawing a vivid picture of which direction the contemporary experimental scene in Copenhagen is headed.

Liss – Off Today

Driven by dreamy guitar figures and a simple, yet elegant chord progression, Liss has created a powerful and melancholic ballad that reflects on a turbulent time in singer Søren Holm's life. The honest and relatable lyrics speak directly to one's emotions and the incredibly catchy chorus makes 'Off Today' one of the finest efforts from the quartet.

Interplanetary Criminal - On Sight

The first and quick-to-be-sold-out release from Hardline Sounds is finally getting a repress and that means these four garage bangers can finally be yours, with every single one harder than the latter. All four cuts are essential highlights, but a personal favorite has to be from the wonder child Interplanetary Criminal. "On Sight" is a good example of less is more - a minimalistic beat, an eerie synth,​ and a rumbling bass. Nothing more is needed.

Tom Misch & Yussef Dayes feat. Freddie Gibbs - Nightrider

Drummer and one half of the notorious once-was duo Yussef Kamaal, most commonly known for putting a new wave of jazzy sounds from the UK underground on the map, Yussef Dayes, is back with a radio-friendly single in the shape of Nightrider. Nightrider is one of the first singles from Yussef Dayes' and Tom Misch's debut LP together, What Kinda Music on legendary New York jazz label Blue Note. Accompanied by American rapper Freddie Gibbs, known for over-the-top visuals and hard-hitting lyrics somewhere in between street poetry and gangsta rap, Nightrider becomes a melancholic, contemporary ride in jazz, soul and hip hop.

Pugilist - Heavy Lies The Crown

Pugilist's new release on UK label Trule Records is a mix of all the best in UK garage, 2-step, jungle and bass - with the touch that is Pugilist on top, of course.
Pugilist, the Australian producer most commonly known for releasing multi-genre bass music, not always only for the clubs, is, with this release, at his best. The Melbourne-native melts together dreamscapes, flangered hi-hats and shuffled and syncopated beats together throughout to create a mellow journey with both dub stabs and deep sub basses.
