Eliot Lipp is a Brooklyn based music producer, touring artist, and analog synthesis black belt. Eliot Lipp was discovered and mentored within the Pretty Lights Music family. One tradition that the whole crew still believes in is the exchange of free music, meaning that Lipp’s new full length album is available for free download via the PLM website. Lipp has pushed his ‘golden age hip-hop meets the synthesizer’ production style into new territory, by fusing soulful organic sounds and all new dance floor mechanics with his classic buttery synth-hop sound, and his undeniably signature melodic charm. Watch The Shadows is as consistently fresh as it is stylistically diverse. This was the driving factor behind making two tracks available upon the album’s announcement. Eliot Lipp explores new genres and styles, yet the album stays true and cohesive from start to finish. All you Coloradoans should come out to the show at Cervantes with Supervision and Paul Basic on Halloween!
“Slow Burn” may sound like the output of a long-seasoned, veteran producer from the UK, but in fact, it’s the latest offering from 21-year-old young gun, Durante, from right here in Los Angeles. Teaming up with singer/songwriter, Chuck Ellis, Durante has fused Chuck’s tender, pop-leaning vocals with pinpoint piano stab breakdowns for a breezy House hit that matches easy listening vibes with superlative potential for peak time play. Showcasing an adeptness and musical understanding far beyond his 21 years in “Slow Burn,” Durante is poised for some serious attention going into 2015. The single has been released for free via the NEST HQ record label, a subsidiary of OWSLA.

Panic Bomber is wrapping up a hugely successful summer with a brand new original entitled I Only Have Eyes for You Too that is available for free download. The track dives into the deeper, darker side of house as Panic Bomber looks to explore the limitations of the genre. There is a presence of hip-hop and R&B rythym that Panic Bomber has carried with him since his start. We first started hearing from Panic Bomber with sets from the Slap and Tickle Podcast then he released Question, which you can listen and download as well below. Then came the fantastic Gotta Dance Dirty Guest Mix, that mix was something else. So, I would suggest to keep an eye on this guy because his live sets are also one of kind so seek him out!
It was over thirty years ago that Carmen Clayton released Time to Move to very little acclaim, but over the years this funk single has continued to reinvent itself. In the modern era, most of us all know this sample from the widely popular NERO track, Must Be A Feeling. As much as we all loved that track, I couldn’t be more excited to showcase MSCLS‘s rendition of Time to Move. Flexing their softer side with this release, the vocals are paired perfectly to a slow moving, classic disco funk theme. While most of MSCLS’s releases have been heavy on the future-bass, this offering shows us his versatility which we will hopefully be hearing more of very soon. MSCLS quickly told THUMP how this track came to fruition.. “I was just kinda digging around youtube to spark some ideas and ran across the vocal from Carmen Clatyon,” he tells THUMP. “I decided to throw it over the track just to see what it sounded like and then kinda fell in love with it.” Enjoy the free download on this one.
French producer, Valy Mo, bridges elements of House, Bass, and Soul in the Tokyo Bright EP. Stylistically diverse from track to track, the three-song release echoes Valy Mo’s sentiments of wanting to be free of the confines of one particular sound — venturing from stabby piano House & pitched down, soul-infused vocals from Chris Severe in lead tune, “Bright,” to the club-ready peaktime anthem, “Tokyo Neon,” to finally rounding it all out with the chilled-out bass roller collab with Fuuku titled “Reflection.” This is yet another stellar release from the fledgling label NEST HQ – an offshoot of Owsla, NEST HQ focusing on finding the underground sounds and exposing them to the masses… always for free!
