Becoming Real aka Toby Ridler put the witch into UK bass when he created his anthem ‘Closer‘ early in 2011. Since then the South London producer has consistently impoved his profile by releasing sinister time capsules on labels such as Ramp Recordings or going on tour with SBTRKT, and is finally on the verge to bring out a mini album named Solar Dreams / Neon Decay. To celebrate the imminent birth of his latest effort he now wants to share one of the album tracks with you: hear, see and download ‘Snow Drift Love‘ below and try to catch the young Mister Ridley in a club near you.
More mysterious than the Mysterons Stay+ are a duo from.., somewhere. We really don’t know, but we do know they are called Christopher Poole and Matt Farthing and if we were betting types the UK would be our guess. Then again with gorgeous dreamy future-pop that comes ready wrapped in a bubble of fog and satin static the why’s and wherefore’s don’t really matter. With that in mind we are very pleased to be able to present the video premiere for the band’s single ‘Dandelion’. We can also tell you is that ‘Dandelion’ is available on 10″ on RAMP Recordings featuring Moshi Moshi’s Psychologist on vocals. The track features on an upcoming EP due in Spring 2012 also on RAMP. We recommend you spend some time immersing yourself in their website here.
Matti Pentikäinen has been releasing some pretty great stuff this year under the moniker of TEETH; we played his 502-released ‘Shawty’ single so much that we even began hearing it in our sleep. Now the Finnish producer is dropping a new EP on the UK label Ramp, containing four tracks of his dubstep-informed dance. Swarm/Shift/Sequence/Spawn is being released September 5th, and you can stream a preview of the four tracks below.
