    Filastine Orchestrates Dystopic Funeral March in 'Requiem 432' Video

    Barcelona musician Filastine makes dystopian bass music for crumbling urban futures. On Aphasia, his latest release for Post World Industries, the producer collapse sounds associated with disparate geographies—pentatonic scales from Middle Eastern music, rap and dubstep from the US and UK, the opulence of First World classical music, and the scarcity of production techniques in the Global South. Featuring help from Indonesian rapper/vocalist Nova, the EP is the soundtrack to a rising heat humidity index.

    Hear Mystery Duo Starry & Slimer Soundtrack Secret Rave on 'Like It Raw'

    "Like It Raw" by mystery DJ duo Starry & Slimer is uncut, unadulterated bass kryptonite. Like any good superheroes, the triumphant team want to keep their identities under wraps. But considering that the pair's debut comes hand-in-hand with repping Trouble & Bass' close-knit group of producers, all signs point to Starry & Slimer being Brooklyn residents that may very well be some of the label's favorites under a different name. So it's fitting that "Like It Raw" is the teaser track for the club imprint's Clash of the Damned Vol. 2, an eight-track compilation of other dynamic duos due on Feb 25. The track's pummeling rhythms and gratifying plateaus pack an unrelenting dance energy that'll have you Google searching for local warehouse raves. Get the party started early and listen to the track below.

    Stream Yumi Zouma's Silky Disco Self-Titled Debut

    New Zealand isn't just the land of our Lorde. Newcomers Yumi Zouma also hail from the archipelago and conjure up cool, dream-pop landscapes of their own. While the trio (Charlie Ryder, Josh Burgess, and Kim Pflaum) are currently divided between New York, Paris, and Christchurch, their most recent collaboration is reminiscent of lost summers in the faraway hills and lakes of home. In turn, the band's self-titled debut EP, due February 11 via Cascine, delivers 15 sublime minutes of soft disco that layers sing-song vocals over huggable synths and muted drum-machine beats. Thematically, songs like the EP's highlight "Sålka Gets Her Hopes Up" are innocently romantic while packing a breezy, sunlit groove. Think of Yumi Zouma as Classixx on Prozac.Listen to the full Yumi Zouma EP below:

"Every person in the world has their own unique experiences that shape what they're best at," says Hershey. "Since I started working with artists like Sizzla, I’ve gotten a lot deeper with my engagement with dancehall.
