Cinco De Mayo weekend is upon us. As we celebrate the victory at the Battle of Puebla over drinks and food, we have procured our weekly rundown of music to accompany this celebration. Viva La Musica!
To kick off the vibes, we have TeflonZincFence's new Dub Policy EP. A slow ride of dub breakbeats, reminiscent of everything we like about dub renaissance. The backdrop of melodic bass drives the train, while keys and other instrumentation dance in-between the rhythms, creating the cool breezy feel. The scarcity of vocals allows the listener to create their own space, space we can't get enough of being a part of. Pree below:
Have you heard this? That's what I keep asking people. Halsey will be releasing her full-length album in June, and if it is anything like "Now or Never," whoa. Pree below:
Sylvan Esso is a KNG2LA favorite and their new release has been on our radar since last week. Their brand of electro-pop continues to push against the confines of traditional electronic music and, with their most recent release What Now, they have solidified themselves as purveyors of the funk.
