WINTER WINDS vol. 1 (Compilation by SVNSET WAVES)

TWOS - Blur (WINTžR WINDS vol. 1 // Dec. 28)

Today, Dec. 28th 2013, isn’t just another maddeningly slow day after the holidays and before the new year is upon us. It’s the day Texas-based blog SVNSET WΛVES drops their final seasonally-themed compilation tape of 2013. The 15-track collection features original joints from young, talented producers wwebss, TWOS, XED, Kruisemode, Fluss (to name a few) and several other beatmakers who tap into hip-hop, bass and R&B influences to craft electronic jams.

Atlanta’s XED, 19 year-old producer and FL Studio master, comes through with his contribution “Actions”. It’s a smashing hip-hop jawn. It begins with the backdrop of a city soundscape that dissolves away and in its place he employs splashes of vocal pads and banging bass lines. It’s damn good. Actually, this whole compilation is damn good. Give this one a listen; guaranteed you’ll be replaying a lot of these tracks.

It’s Here! Shadows Compilation


Marinate Media presents:

Shadows is a 13-piece showcase of artists and producers from around the country who’re making phenomenal music. Many of these producers are under the age of 18 and making sounds beyond their years. Others, (Black Noi$e, Do$age, CONTACT LENS, etc.) have established they’re here to stay for a long, long time. In 2013 look for these producers/artists to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight.

Life Crushed Presents: Night Tape


After about a month of gathering tracks from a number of contributors we’ve narrowed it down to these special twelve. I hope you all enjoy them as much as we have. Special thanks to all the artists involved in our experiment. Even though only 12 made the final cut, all of your submissions were beautiful. We value the time and effort you all put in to creating the tracks that were submitted. Both Olin and I love the fact that we are able to post and emphasize music that we feel deserves recognition. And for that we are thankful.
