Danish producer Kölsch is pretty household name in techno and electro circles (don’t worry I hadn’t really heard of him until yesterday either) and this track has all the verve and craftsmanship you’d associate with a seasoned artist. I just love how the beat builds and builds until it crescendos and falls with an elegant string melody. Bravo!

Kentucky producer Amtrac is a big favorite of Bear Toons and he shows exactly why I love his sound with his new and free track ‘Those Days’. The track is clearly a head-bobber, a knee slapper, thigh-thumper or any body appendage-mover you care to favor. The relentless bass and hypnotic vocal samples will conspire to enthuse even the most melancholy of listeners. This was originally released last week but shamefully I forgot to post it, my sincerest apologies. There’s also a slew of remixes for the track, most notably by Viceroy but my favorite remains the original.

Two Door Cinema Club’s reputation precedes them. Whether or not your a fan of their fast paced, hook filled rock pop, the boys from Bangor, North Ireland have blown up big time. Their latest album Beacon  was released a couple weeks ago and judging by the quality of Beataucue’s remix of Sleep Alone, this album looks likely to be remixed as repeatedly as Tourist History. Hailing from the Normandy city of Caen, Beataucue have perfected their french electro sound and they deliver with this superbly energetic remix of ‘Sleep Alone’.

Its been almost a month and a half since I posted a ‘Weeks End’ playlist. Mostly because I’ve been busy traveling and studying for exams. Though I haven’t finished exams (not even close, still 14 days away), I have started procrastinating again and what better way to then with summer-happy, bass heavy electro-house jams. If your summer has already started; dig in guilt-free. If it hasn’t, download these tracks and lock them away for that sunny day.

Following up their outstanding Finger Snaps and Gun Claps and Death of Summer EP, LA electro-rap duo King Fantastic have wasted no time in putting out more music. In my mind these guys are the most exciting hip hop crew around today. SocioPoliticalPimpTalk is a 4-track lesson in what King Fantastic does like no one else. Producer Troublemaker continues to defy reason with his electro-gangtsta infused beats. On the mic, Killer Reese One is probably the best example of West Coast gangsta rap active today (Tupac hologram excluded). The EP kicks off with lead single ‘G Sharp’ concise illustration of what KF are in every sense. ‘Coastal Shindig’ is a catchy party song dominated by Reese One’s lyrical masterclass.  Dark, smokey and ferocious, ‘Jamaica, California’ is for all the smokers out there. The EP is rounded out with ‘Guide to Petting Cougars’ an truly Californian ode to MILFs. Stream the tape below and cop it on Itunes to support the group.
