The #music AOTY results are in! Major S/O to OG #music member @davehawkins for whipping up a nice design for y'all to check the results

Fill me in…
 

What do you get when you mix #punk music with #jazz and #hiphop? A very interesting sound. How in the world @edwin came across this? No clue, but we’re glad he did because chances are you’ve never heard anything like this before. Leave it to a Belgian that goes by TEaN KROVX to bring us the sound we never knew existed.

@davehawkins must be in #chill mode for the holidays sharing with us a tune by London artist Slime that represents the channel’s namesake very well.

The Columbia House Record Club who has done mail order music since the 70’s is coming back in 2016 with vinyl. They died a slow death finally tapering off last year, but something has brought it back to life and old folks have good reason to rejoice...although they probably won't be able to get 12 LP’s for a penny anymore.

If you’re down with Toro Y Moi, check out some previously unreleased and ‘rare’ tracks he just dropped on his SoundCloud page.

Don’t sleep on…


Aussie composer, Anatole. The “orchestral laptop maestro” appears to have only been releasing music for around a year, but after listening, it seems he’s been at it for decades. His most recent EP called Surrounds was released just a couple weeks ago and is a great start to what we hope is long career in making music. Here’s ‘Colours’:
