Although we are once again delayed in announcing the latest Beko + Crash Symbols collaboration by a prohibitive schedule (read, my wedding on the other side of the country), we’re no less proud to present you with a new collection of beats, electro-pop, and beautifully smashed techno from the finest prodigies: Daniel Sex Jr., The Cyclist, Rimar, and Kites Sail High. If you only download one free thing this morning, consider making it this. If you already have it, consider getting an Egg McMuffin before McDonalds stops serving breakfast.
Up top, we’re streaming one of The Cyclist’s contributions, “See It” - you’ll love it.
Pressed And is the intriguingly named collaboration of Andrew Hamlet and Mat Jones (with a surname like Hamlet, you have to imagine names are being taken at least a bit more seriously than usual), one of the hydra heads of a burgeoning southeastern electronic scene, that we’ve often seen in association with North Carolina’s Denmark Records. Their debut LP, Imbue Up, is a testament to that emergent milieu; some are calling it post-chillwave, but the reality is a more complex interplay of primal effects and synth landscapes, rife with tension in a cascading sequence of loops and glowing drones. This is an album of sensation, that lingers and mingles in ways you rarely expect and despite its coherence never quite master.

Today, I got interviewed on facebook by a magical genius dood: Christian Michael Filardo. He also made me into a .gif, Praise Jesus.
So today I got the chance to sit down with Dwight Pavlovic of Crash Symbols to pick his brain about fast cars, cassettes, and most of all music. Here is the interview I conducted and a bit of music from his super rad label!

So I did a label trade with Crash Symbols a little while back and was given a bulk of good tapes. Lone behold being who I am I didn’t get to them all right away and this week, I decided to listen to the only one I hadn’t listened to yet and that was Zeadron’s “Hold My Hand? No”. I was super stoked that I did, a mesh of dance, to ambient, to the occasional noise spurt here and this little cassette had me wanting more from the guy.
I would say it is definitely worth your time and you should pick one up if you have the paper! Check out Zeadron here!
Our pal Christian Michael Filardo, who runs the stellar Holy Page Records, has some kind words to say for the Zeadron tape we put out with Rebel Magazine earlier this year. The tape is sold out but you can still listen and grab the mp3s over here.
Taste the rain, Beau.
Our pals over at BIRP.fm just posted up a full download of Born Gold’s Bodysongs. Go scoop it up and dance your brains out! We still have some copies of the 12” left so grab that over at Insound if you haven’t yet, before they’re all gone and you’re full of regret.
Everyone knows that the Poconos are known for the prolific local yoga culture, but occasionally the harmony of middle aged movement is interrupted by foulest murder. This mixtape was commissioned by The Pennsylvania Poconos Tourism Board to get everyone a bit more into the spirit of things. Judge Noah Wall presiding.
