Kidnap Kid – Animaux

Kidnap Kid’s “Animaux” is one of the two tracks on his EP, “So Close,” released last year. With very simple and deliberate bass and electronic beats, the song will have you bumping. The rhythm is so sporadic, and his use of accented up-beats and minimal lyrics rubs me the right way. Can I be the one? Although […]

Kaytranada – Leave Me Alone ft. Shay Lia

He’s been hot for a minute already, but if you haven’t yet booked your ticket on the overnight bus to the netherworld that is the Kaytranada bandwagon, step right up.

One of the great things about a band like The Knife is that they turn seemingly bizarre combinations of sounds into something refreshing. While the Swedish duo […]
