Yoko Ono recently made somewhat of an underground comeback with her Plastic Ono Band. Ono’s single “Give Me Something” (which reminds me of another person favorite, Mu’s “Paris Hilton”) was remixed by the likes of Junior Boys, Dave Aude, Stonebridge, and one of my favorite deep house producers, Roberto Rodriguez. This isn’t the first time you’ve heard the track. Roberto dropped it in his Om Cast last month. The Junior Boys mix is pretty good, but gotta give it up to Roberto for holding it down for underground music / producers. It’s the sickest remix on a single full of cheese.

I’ve been a fan of Trentemøller since his early Naked Music days and have loved following him through his departure away from that sound. His last album, “Last Resort” is still one of my favorite albums to date and I’m happy to see him back with a new album.
The first single, “Sycamore Feelings”, has an eerie melancholic sound somewhere in between Nancy Sinatra, Boards of Canada, and Fever Ray.
“Sycamore Feelings” is out now and features remixes from friends, Gui Boratto and Thomas Schumacher.
The new album, ’Into The Great Wide Yonder’, drops in May on his own In My Room Records.
Some artists sometimes come up with the funniest names. These Polish friends have me scratching my head thinking WTF were they thinking when they decided to call them selves POL_ON. Despite the strange name, the production team of Kacper Bogacz and Michał Piotrowski, are putting out some dope tracks. They just dropped a single on Freerange, but it’s really this, “Molala” track on Pets Recordings (Catz&Dogz label) from last month, that I can’t get out of my head.
It’s nice to open up your computer to a new M.I.A. song, especially one that brings her in an entirely new musical direction. Filled with heavy doses of punk rock, Born Free is expressing is raw emotions through her potent lyrics. Check out the brand new 8 minute music video after the jump.
Vtech just hipped me to a new DJ Nuts mix dedicated to the works of Brazilian artist and producer Arthur Verocai. Known to be one of the most prolific artists in recent Brazilian history, DJ Nuts compiles and mixes his favorite Verocai tunes digging deep in the catalogue working directing with Verocai himself. DJ Nuts is an astute and rigorous historian of Brasil’s vast and varied musical culture. His record collection is legendary; his skills as a DJ are world class. For such a mix to be made, only a true Brasilian music aficionado could have created this, and Vtech is honored to be able to share it with you.
Rocket Empire and Sinning in LA got together for a little Q & A last week speaking about the new album and reinvigorating the downtempo music genre. They’re also giving away 5 signed copies of the album for those who email firstname.lastname@example.org what they love about the story.
Sinning in LA:
We’ve always loved all the fresh sounds that have come out on OM Records. It has long been one of the best labels in America when it comes to delivering forward-thinking and genre-defying electronic and hip-hop music. While many would associate the label with their stable of house music legends, such as Marques Wyatt, Kaskade, Mark Farina and Andy Caldwell, they have also showcased some of the best in downtempo beats as well, especially with their legendary OM Lounge series. This was how I came to discover the sounds of Rocket Empire, where producer Dave Dish has reinvented himself after starting his career as a house music producer for the label and delivered an album that should find plenty of late night favor this year.
