Download: Cvsper "Fairies"

First Listen

Cvsper is a 21-year-old producer from Santiago, Chile who has begun to build a catalog of original productions over the past two years. The latest effort from the budding South American talent is "Fairies," an airy track which places a lightly side-chained pads over a percussive house beat. Where the driving track really shines, is in its melodic content—light bell lines crisp synth melodies and gather around chopped vocal samples, building on top of each other more and more as the sun-washed "Fairies" steadily builds towards its heavenly climax.

Download: Deft "One Eye Open"

For most of 2014, London producer Deft has continued to quietly build up his impressive discography, which has shown increasingly the artist to be capable of proficiently crafting a wide range of UK club sounds. Most recently, Deft let loose Before Vol. 2, a collection of demos and b-sides that—for one reason or another—never found their way to an official release. As "One Eye Open" proves though, this is not for lack of quality; the soul-scorched beat is a fine example of the producer's talents, one that streaks floating chords and wordless vocals atop a detailed set of percussion, led by the precise bite of tuned snaps and miniature claps. Out now, Deft's full Before Vol. 2 can be streamed after the jump.  Read more »

Download: Lee Carvallo "So High"

First Listen
Label: Heka Trax

Glasgow's Nightwave is currently in the process of building the catalog of her own Heka Trax imprint, and to that point, has launched a summer-long series of free EPs which the label will be giving away over the coming weeks. The first such collection comes from Canadian newcomer Lee Carvallo, whose Summer Lovin' EP offers four smoothed-over R&B refixes. "So High" serves as our first taste of Carvallo's efforts, placing bulbous kicks and skittering layers of bubbly percussion beneath a series of piano-rich samples. The resulting production sounds primed to rattle some trunks, as does the rest of Carvallo's Summer Lovin' EP, which can be streamed and downloaded for free after the jump.  Read more »
