premiere: watch DJ Taye’s “Burnin Ya Boa” video

DJ TAYE

We're psyched to premiere the beautifully shot, Desmond Penn-directed new visuals from one of the brightest young luminaries in footwork, Teklife's DJ Taye. With its elegantly chopped samples -- that tinkling, cascading piano and an almost mournful woodwind melody lend the song an unmistakably poignant vibe -- deftly woven into Taye's distinctive skittering drum and bass patterns, the soulful, DJ Manny-assisted "Burnin Ya Boa" is one of the highlights from the producer's very dope Move Out EP, out this week on Hyperdub...

premiere: Different Sleep – Lost Profit (feat. Angelina Lucero)

DIFFERENT SLEEP

We were first introduced to Rafa Alvarez — aka Different Sleep — by Jerome LOL when he took over the site a couple years back. On his skittering new single, the Chicago-based producer teams up with regular Jerome LOL collaborator (and member of Different Sleep's Friends of Friends labelmates IDYLL) Angelina Lucero, whose hauntingly otherworldly vocals take everything they touch to another level, adding a mysterious vibe and a heavy emotional layer to an already transfixing track...

mp3: download Jlin’s intense Holly Herndon collab ‘Expand’

JLIN DARK ENERGY

Young Gary, Indiana, producer Jlin just released her new album Dark Energy, a mind-warping collection of progressive mutant-footwork jams, on London label Planet Mu. She recently spoke with self-titled about the genesis of each track on the record, and had this to say about working with the brilliant Holly Herndon on the menacing, anxiety-inducing "Expand", Jlin's first ever collaboration:
"Her style totally challenged mine, and that’s what made the collab work so well...

mp3 premiere: IDYLL – Trouble

IDYLL TROUBLE

"Trouble always follows me I know / or maybe I just follow trouble"Very psyched to introduce IDYLL, the new collaboration from Chicagoans Angelina Lucero + JoJo Yang. The duo's spectral debut single finds Lucero's devastating, lovelorn voice (hopefully you're already familiar) hovering over Yang's shadowy/sexy, beautifully restrained bass-heavy production, which ebbs and swells to hit hardest at all the right times...
