Luminary Youth - Satorion [EP]

Luminary Youth's bio goes like this, “Raised by wolves but ultimately rejected.” [via] Maybe he just preferred the lone wolf role he takes on as electronic producer extraordinaire over just following what the pack is doing. 

Hearing Gold earlier today (09/3/2012) was quick to point out how fantastic LY’s new track “Honey” is (because it really is fantastic), but in my opinion it’s only the tip of the iceberg when considering the Floridian’s new release Satorion

The 12-ish minute journey traverses an array of backdrops—sexy ambient atmospheres, thumping house rhythms and with some lush piano accompaniment. “Toyko In Rain (Intro)” sounds like its descriptive title, as well as, “World Ends (Sex Sleep)”.

Florida is a hotbed for talented producers right now, (ChromadaData, xxyyxx, GRANT, Spies On Bikes) and you can add Luminary Youth to that list of cats out there doing the damn thing.          

Je$u$ - XII APOSTLES [Beat Tape]

Je$u$, this is a good beat tape. Je$u$ is a producer out of Germany who specializes in making instrumental hip-hop jams. XII APOSTLES is 12 tracks deep, all Roman numeral titled, all jazzy, soulful samples, all fuzzy head nodders. “III” has a tight little bossa nova backdrop to accompany its clobber, jab-step percussion. It’s chill. “IV” has this Roberta Flack “Feel Like Makin’ Love” sexy downtempo vibe. Its got this guitar lick (it’s so familiar) that steals the show. Urban Waves hosts this dope tape and it’s available on cassette if you like the ’80s and still rock a Walkman. This tape is awesome.
