American music producer DJ Shadow dropped his second album "The Less You Know, The Better" a few months back. My favorite track is "Scale It Back" because it features Swedish electro band 'Little Dragon'. I love them. Yukimi Nagano's vocals are hot, R&B soul but served on ice. I mean, she's sexy and she's chill all at once. It's Neo-soul with textured production. And now "Robotaki" (20! year old Preston Chin) has released a sweet remix that you can listen to on his SoundCloud:
or on YouTube here:
And for track-by-track walk through of "The Less You Know, The Better" by DJ Shadow himself, take a look at this interview he did for Billboard.
Justine Freeman has an ear for music and an eye for style. Her father is a musician who started playing as a teenager with Jim Morrison and later toured around Europe with his band for 8 years. Needless to say, she heard a lot of rock growing up, (and not nearly enough disco!) Justine also spent time with her grandmother listening to experimental, minimalist music by composers such as La Monte Young and Phillip Glass. This has helped to shape her appreciation for emerging artists and she continues to scour the music scene for current releases that she finds noteworthy.
