Moktar - Immigrant
Moktar has returned with his first official single since the release of his groundbreaking debut EP. Immigrant “is about people leaving their countries in search of a better or different life, highlighting the struggle so many go through to be accepted and how hard people must have to work towards building what they have today.” The track is a house and synth driven number, glitchy and clubby at first before erupting into sonic bliss with gorgeous chords. Amidst the chaos is a chopped vocal sample of Arsenal Football Club’s hype man, Frimpon.
700 Feel - 4 Ya Kiss
Earlier this week, Eora/Sydney based electronic production duo 700 Feel have released two new tracks, 4 Ya Kiss / 4 Ya Bliss. The singles continue their brand of genre defiant music, utilising bass heavy rhythmic sections and dubs and wrapping them in a gloss of ambient textures. Be blown away by the tracks' skewing rhythms, unfamiliar structure and vibe while feeling at home in their warmth, soul and personality.
