HIGHCAST 60: Magical Mistakes

Magical Mistakes plays on a global field, but there’s a unique other-worldly vibe that is foundational to the high art that is his music. This is mostly in part to the North American beatsmith’s supreme divulgence in Japanese culture – a culture so rich and so disparate that the average American would it find alien.

REVIEW: Ba-kuura – Super Dream_sim EP

Atlanta’s Ba-kuura (who aptly rounded out our SAMSARA Vol. 1 compilation from earlier this year) are apart of a new wave of producers that strictly play by their own rules.

HIGHCAST 59: boi-a-gutz

With his first proper release in 2010, Finland’s Gremino appeared at a crucial time when the first ventures away from Dubstep to Bass Music were getting fleshed out by the likes of Untold, Pearson Sound and Scuba. Along with Cedaa, Mistamen, C.R.S.T, KingThing, HissyFit and Graphics, Gremino was a part of the prolific first year

PREMIERE: Thunderbird Juicebox & Kola VI – Low Low

Philadelphia’s Seclusiasis records (run by North American bass music legends Starkey and Dev79) can always be depended on to deliver fresh club-ready music from both rising new talent and (under-appreciated) regional legends. The two old friends have carried the torch for North America the world over, transcending genre and trends, all under the banner of

EXCLUSIVE DOWNLOAD: Skubi – Low Key

After throwing his weight around on his recent HIGHCAST mix and sufficiently demonstrating a keen ear for the quick footed 80/160 BPM arena, Ohio’s Skubi wanted to show us that he has a real gentle side too. A beautiful gift, Low Key is a heavily chilled snapper that arrives at the perfect time. Not only

HIGHCAST 58: SELA.

Truly, attempts to describe the music of SELA. by various press outlets always results in a sort of accidental poetry. The only means to articulate the unique soundscapes and transcendental power contained within the 20 year old Northern Californian’s music is to default to deep, rich, often lush language. And this is for a reason.

And I say this in earnest. To celebrate the July 28th release of Polygon Fane EP on Infinite Machine (complete with remixes by Thomas White, Druid Cloak,
