The Brooklyn-based band’s full length album is a long time coming, but if “Apocalypse” is any indication, it’s been worth the wait. Cigarettes After Sex transports you somewhere […]

Dutch Uncles: Streetlight

  It’s not often that you find a song that makes you want to groove and also think deeply about the song’s message. With “Streetlight”, Manchester natives Dutch Uncles manage to do exactly that.

Ryan Hemsworth: Burying the Sun

  Canada’s Ryan Hemsworth released a new track today hot off the heels of the amazing “How It Felt” released earlier this month (which slipped through the cracks here at What’s Hip¿ and is an EXCELLENT track). “Burying the Sun” is a bit more experimental in nature, mixing some dope beats with eastern percussive elements […]

1 2 Watch 4 – Jacob Alexander: Again

  After a looong time away, this track appropriately eases me back into the face-paced nature of the music world. “Again” by Jacob Alexander is dreamy and powerful, invoking a triumphant, untouchable feeling within me. It is hard to believe it was written by a 17-year-old high schooler! Get lost in the ambiance and make sure […]

1 2 Watch 4 – WNWD: HIGHER

  I became aware of WNWD after discovering their track “Cruise” – which is an outstanding modern r&b track with gorgeous vocals, stellar production and a soothing melody. They have just released a new single, “Higher”, which has a slightly different feel and vibe. It is a hazy number with a darker feel that moves along […]

David Douglas: White Heat Blood (feat. Blaudzun)

  An excellent track coming from Dutch electronic producer David Douglas. There is a hint of glitchy dub coming through the track, but quickly it becomes something dreamy featuring analogue synthesizer sounds and groovy beats.

1 2 watch 4 – Umiaq: Dreaming

Los Angeles based producer Umiaq will be dropping an EP called “Far From Home” in mid October. Check out the effervescent “Dreamer” with it’s tapestry of soft piano chords, scatter shot beats and muffled vocals. Certainly a dreamy tune with an alluring ambience.

Alex Smoke: Green Man

An excellent mood piece coming from Alex Smoke and his new single, “Green Man”.  Taking me back to the good ‘ole days of jazzy house music and warm nights dancing under the stars.
