Laxcity delivers a straight banger of a song that showcases the British artist’s production and sound design skills. This is a nice change in pace, with most of his recent releases being notably more mellow and emotional; Laxcity switches things up by creating a high-energy track that is just bursting with positive vibes. A truly wonderful feel-good track, perfect for kicking you into high gear to take on the world.

We’ve got another hot track from tregs. He’s been in the game for a while now, and has been part of Sunday Sauuce and The Sound You Need’s compilation albums so you know he’s legit.
“breathe” is an extremely upbeat and groovy track. Some serious Pomo vibes going on here, so if you’re a fan I would highly recommend this track. And that second drop tho…
More // Night has just released his long-anticipated Double Slash LP, featuring 10 solid tracks that really showcases the British artist's unique sound, blending multiple genres like future bass, funk, house, garage, and more.
Currently, my personal favorite off his LP is "Fluro", the second track off the album, which opens with an extremely funky lead that quickly builds into a high-energy future bass-esque drop. The song maintains a wonderfully danceable groove that is sure to keep your feet moving and your head bobbing.

VALENTINE’s debut concept album tells VALENTINE’s love story with his fiancée, weaving the excitement, joys, pains, and beauty of love over the course of the album through lyrics, visual art, accompanying music videos, and musical content. Presented by Majestic Casual Records, the album signals VALENTINE’s progression from his releases with Moving Castle, making his debut as a vocalist, and expanding his brilliantly maximalist productions to include inspirations from pop, jazz, hip-hop, funk and bass music. True to the album’s storytelling chronology, each of the singles are being released one at a time as “episodes”, each being counted down by a mysterious, forthcoming announcement website.
“Embrace” is the third episode of the Falling story, as well as VALENTINE’s official debut as a vocalist. The track is a dazzling fusion of styles, incorporating jazz influences alongside pianist Rob Araujo and hip-hop alongside rapper Patches. The resulting piece stands in a lane of its own, pairing VALENTINE's maximalist sound design in a musically sophisticated palette reminiscent of artists like Anderson Paak, Kaytranada and Smino. Find VALENTINE’s written descriptions of “Embrace” below:
Sometimes, I just think about all the times we rode the train to see each other; all the times I sprinted from those doors to your arms and held you for the first time in weeks.
The pattern repeats as I come home from traveling and rush into the apartment to hold you again.
Sometimes, I get caught up in my insecurities; I know we both do. Truthfully, it was never our purpose to be perfect.
Sometimes, I wonder: “What is my purpose?”
The pattern repeats as I realize all I can do is embrace our individuality, the memories we share, and all the experiences that we have yet to discover.
Stay tuned for the next episode, “Touch”, to be released in 2 weeks.
