I feel partly responsible for this release because I spent months verbally harassing Dirt to put his beats on Soundcloud, so here we are happy to give you the first leak from his upcoming debut project, the Avant Garde Experience EP. Look out for this, collaborations and production on other projects from the Montreal veteran producer.

!llmind – Synesthesia (Instrumental EP)

Thursday, June 19th, 2014


With zero warning, !llmind brings us a brand new instrumental project called Synesthesia. The title describes the condition which sometimes manifests itself, as is the case with Pharrell and Stevie Wonder, as an ability to see sounds as colors.

!llmind says about the EP:

Some musicians see colors when hearing music.
I’m one of them.
This EP is a collection of abstract musical textures that I felt the need to express. – !llmind

High Klassified – Hyrule Kastle

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

After its initial release a few months ago, I’ve seen music geeks and blogs alike showing love to High Klassified’s Palindroma project (mainly “Outro”, which has basically become a staple in the nightlife here, embedded below). The Low Pros (A-Trak x Lex Luger) collaborator has been popping up at shows & festivals all over the place since. This kid and his homie Da-P (of Soulection) are about to blow up in the instrumental game.

Cop Palindroma (out on A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold Records imprint) on iTunes here and follow him on Instagram, he’s got a pretty interesting sense of humor layered with in-studio sessions and snippets of unfinished beats.
