Bonobo US Tour with Jordan Rakei + New Album

February 5th, 2022

 Bonobo aka Simon Green has released his highly-anticipated new album Fragments via Ninja Tune, which features Jamila Woods, Joji, Kadhja Bonet, Jordan Rakei, O’Flynn, and Miguel Atwood-FergusonFragments arrives with tremendous momentum: rave reviews, featured on NPR Music’s New Music Friday program and coverage from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Billboard, The Fader, SPIN, Hypebeast, Zane Lowe, a DJ Mag cover story, an interview on WNYC and much more.

After coming back from touring for two years, Green felt a sense of everything shifting and unraveling with the California wildfires and ongoing pandemic as he set out to make this new album. Born first out of fragments of ideas and experimentation in his Los Angeles studio in 2020 and 2021, the album ultimately was fused together in a burst of creativity fueled by collaboration, Green’s solo adventures into the deserts of California and even his use of modular synths for the first time. Fragmentsis the sound of struggle and isolation, personally and collectively – and of a surging, joyous return. It is a reminder that out of struggle and disillusionment, creativity and hope can emerge at the most unexpected moments.

Jerry Paper Announces New Album!

February 5th, 2022

NEW album announcement and video from Jerry Paper, who’s new project Free Time arrives April 15th via Stones Throw. The album is an expression of freedom on their journey to self-discovery as a nonbinary artist, groover, and, most importantly, shaker of ass.

With Free Time, Jerry Paper invites us to climb aboard their funhouse version of the Starship Enterprise, one whose Prime Directive is self-acceptance— learning to rid ourselves of judgment from without and within, to forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and to boldly go into the Deep Space of our own inner worlds, where our inner wellspring of creativity lies. By the end of the album, Nathan lands their spacecraft and disembarks, and comes out (literally and figuratively) from the vessel embracing themselves for who they really are: non-binary, a beautiful flower, nuanced, strange, bizarre, and flawed…with a ketchup stain on their blue dress.

WATCH – Fly Anakin “No Dough” Produced By Madib

January 7th, 2022

 Fly Anakin announces his debut studio album Frank, out March 11th via Lex Records.

The album, which includes his two widely-praised singles from 2021 “Ghost” and “Sean Price,” is a bold statement from Anakin as not only a technically-gifted rapper, but as a fully-realized artist and songwriter. Frank experiments with expectation, finding Anakin drawing influence from the classic R&B and Soul his dad played for him at a formative age and crafting songs in that mold.

Clocking in at under 2 minutes, the Madlib-produced “No Dough” is a flash in the pan reflection of Anakin’s journey to this point, chronicling humble beginnings before realizing his own worth and making that intent clear.

The single arrives alongside a rapidly-unfolding visual of a quick and slick-handed scheme to take back what’s his directed by Skyler Vander Molen.

WATCH – Yeek “Valencia” + New Album March 19th

March 10th, 2021

Filipino-American singer Yeek is announcing his new album. Valencia is set to arrive on March 19th, and to coincide with the announcement he’s sharing the album’s title track and an accompanying video. The song is a lush soundscape with R&B sensibilities about community and heritage. The video is a surreal neon lit visual.

Valencia, Yeek’s first proper release following his 2019 EP IDK WHERE, which Highsnobiety said “manages to effortlessly showcase his unique sound,” is his most emotionally lush and polished work to date. It features collaboration from from Jeff Ellis, the engineer who has worked with Frank Ocean, Snoh Aalegra, and Omar Apollo, and focuses on themes of relationship woes and keeping family close. Valencia will be accompanied by a short film Yeek has made for the project and is a reflection of Yeek’s own relationship to life expectations and striking the right balance between independence and collaboration. Valencia, along with its accompanying short film, is a deep, ambitious body of work that invites serious engagement to explore and unpack.
