Filed by fmdj2u7leqg6cfmdj2u7leqg6c

The worlds dance music and rap have started to blur together in the last year. While some artists have met this new development with open arms through genre-blurring collaborations, others have taken a more subtle approach. Case in point – Louis Futon. The artist has released a brilliant cover J. Cole’s ‘Kevin’s Heart’ with help from Armani White, BXRBER, and Bellah.

J. Cole – ‘Kevin’s Heart’ (Louis Futon Cover)

The cover is brilliantly done. It keeps the soulful melody the original by injects a new level funk through forward thinking production. The use various artists on vocals which help supplement J. Cole’s verse is nothing short masterful.

The cover is eclectic, innovative and a ton fun to listen to. We have been fans Louis since his first releases f Odesza’s Foreign Family imprint. Needless to say, his time around the Foreign Family artists treated him well, as this cover is nothing short breath taking. It is the perfect track for the end the night after a party, or to play as background music while grinding away at school work or in the fice. It is the kind tune that you can get lost in and drift away to a different world.

Louis hit a home run with this one. Check the cover and Louis’ tour dates out below.

Imbi The Girl has shared a moving new single titled swell – the first release 2018 for the Sydney based artist.

Off the back a massive 18-months that included performances at Listen Out, Groovin The Moo, Big Pineapple Music Festival, Wide Open Space Festival and Festival Of The Sun, swell sees a return that unique blend electronica, R&B and hip-hop as Imbi tells a personal story through incredible lyricism and production.

Speaking on the meaning behind the single, Imbi says “swell is about this feeling I get in my chest sometimes. It’s like this pressure that sort sits and slowly builds. it’s not anxiety, it’s not excitement, not sadness or joy, it’s kind a culmination all that and more. usually I struggle to find a release from the pressure but writing this song really helped me learn to observe it and appreciate the feeling for what it is, I hope it helps others do the same.”

Filed by tr21ktr21k

For over a decade, Proxy has been a force to be reckoned with in club music. The UK based producer stamped his name in the electronic music history books with timeless, techno-driven anthems such as Raven and Dance In Dark, and still today he is churning out the heavy hitters.

Off the back his new EP, Language Barrier that is out now This Ain’t Bristol, local legend caught up with Proxy to shoot the shit on the topic new music, live streaming, Fortnite and more.

Stoney Roads: Is there anything you particularly miss about Australia or look forward to doing while your back?

Proxy: This could be sounded funny but I got kind tradition while I’m there: I really love Australian summer clothes, like I’m usually buying some exclusive pants and t-shirts which you cannot get anywhere else.​ Maybe I’ll get more Proxy sunglasses which are Australian.​

SR: What artists or labels will always remain an influence for your production?

P: I can mention the one and only XL Recordings which is ​in this game for 30 years and it’s still discovering and growing massive talents from across the planet. Think their key words is “different and unique”, which I’m trying to put into my music as well.!

SR: What have you been listening to outside club music?

P: Very different stuff, from oldskool rap to rock and even movie soundtracks.

SR: I also read in an interview that you like playing “online shooters”; are you still gaming and if so what’s your favourite games currently?

P: Wish I have more time to play but yeah I’m still gaming. Really love some the VR games on my Vive and I’m a big fan Fortnite on PC currently.

SR: What drew you towards labels such as This Ain’t Bristol & Night Bass?

P: These labels got their own sound which I really like and I can feel really strong family vibes inside these labels and I think the family is more important than just releasing music.

SR: What can we expect from Proxy in 2018?

P: Lots new music, new experiments, live streams from the studio and many more interesting stuff.

SR: Your adaption the Hammer & Sickle for branding is quite prominent, do you have this as esoteric reference for Russia or are you putting political meaning behind your music?

P: I’m not in the politics at all and I’m actually stepped away from this hummer and sickle logo I’ve used for years to avoid this political sub-sense and I just liked that design old soviet propaganda posters etc so that’s why this was used by me.

SR: I recently spend some time with Volac and they mentioned you have quite a bit hardware, what’s your favourite piece equipment for bass sounds?

P: My favourite piece equipment is my studio, coz some stuff I use today, some tomorrow, everything is good for bass house actually ?

SR: What are three processing plugins that are a staple your sound & how do you use them?

P: I use Fabfilter Pro-L 2 for limiting and basically using it in my master chain, default Logic Pro’s Compressor which I have on every channel in sequencer and Plugin Alliance Passeq is my mastering equalizer which is also I’m having on every single track I’m working on.

SR: What’s a piece equipment you have always whats to obtain and why?

P: I guess it’s 2 them: Roland SH-101 which I’ve made my track Raven, it is so simple and friendly, always funny to work with. And maybe Roland V-Synth which I always coming back to whatever I have ideas or not… Like its weird synth and you never know where you end up while making sounds.
