Nicolas Jaar

Sublime electronic compositions with one eye on the dancefloor and one eye cocked towards the concert hall from the 20 year old New Yorker who already has had releases on the Wolf + Lamb, Circus Company and Clown & Sunset labels. Currently finishing off his debut album “Tre” inbetween studies at Brown University in Rhode Island. Check out a selection of tunes and remixes here.

Computer Magic

Sun-hazed, heat-warped, beautifully impulsive and highly suggestive electronic textures from New Yorker Danielle Johnson who fits in her music-making between college, graphic design and blogging. Check out the slo-mo delights of “On VHS” and “Downtown Is Broken” on her Soundcloud.

Uber Glitterati

Glitzy occasionally melancholic electropop with synthy swoons and wobbly disco stabs from Belfast duo Elizabath McGeown and Stevie Mac who also do a fine line in remixes. Download “Resolutions” here.
