Big Wild - Afterglow (Foreign Family Collective)

Big Wild is a producer out of Venice, CA. He caught my ear a few months ago with his remix of Griz' "For The Love". I recently stumbled upon his original track "Aftergold" - released through ODESZA's Foreign Family Collective. I instantly fell in love with this track "Afterglow" - it's the perfect mid tempo, something to sway to but with moments of swells that get your heart racing and your smile turned up. It has light xylophone/marimba type sounds - reminiscent of Autograf's signature sound, but tweaked and toned differently with a Big Wild and ODESZA style. Listen here!

New Album: The Deadbeats - Soft Focus

The Deadbeats released a new album a few weeks ago titled "Soft Focus." I got into The Deadbeats many years ago after hearing a few of their tracks featured on the Wax On Records compilation series (founded by downtempo legend Nightmares on Wax). This album is more of the same and more of what I love - downtempo, chilled percussion grooves with intriguing vocal samples. Check it out on Bandcamp:
