DIRTY//CLEAN PRESENTS - DJDS (JEROME LOL & SAMO SOUND BOY) // BEDROCKK // MOSIS // GUNKST // LEMON FUTURE
We had so much fun at our first DIRTY//CLEAN PRESENTS party! Thanks to everyone who made it out, we can't wait for the next one.
MAGNETIC MAG PREMIERE - LEMON FUTURE REMIXED BY DAEDELUS
We are excited to bring you a very special remix of Lemon Future's "Jovian Dream," crafted by enigmatic L.A. beat-scene legend Daedelus. This visceral remix puts an intriguing and unique spin on a great track by Denver-based DIRTY//CLEAN artist Lemon Future, aka Steele Kempton. Taken from the Magnetic premiere: "With the goal of delivering a truly masterful release, Kempton tapped the incredibly talented producer Daedelus to remix 'Jovian Dream'. He completely transforms the tune with a remix consisting of an energetic array of synth and rhythm." Check out the premiere here and pre-oder the Golden Era EP here.
GUNKST'S "HOLLOWTIP" PREMIERED BY NEST HQ
Gunkst's latest single "Hollowtip" was premiered by Nest HQ, who noted that the "rising Denver-based producer has always been comfortable operating within the experimental side of bass music." This high-tempo romp through genres is another gem for Gunkst, who has been "establishing left-field approaches to club, trash can trap, and grime" since coming into focus with his Terrorhythm release. Check the premiere here and follow Gunkst on his Soundcloud.
"GOLDEN ERA" BY LEMON FUTURE PREMIERED BY COMPLEX UK
We linked up with Complex UK to premiere the single "Golden Era" by Lemon Future. This shimmering house-inflected piece is a musical ode to impressionist art and surrealism. The forthcoming EP comes out on May 27th and features an official remix from Los Angeles beat legend Daedelus. As Complex noted, "You can hear most clearly on the title track with its rich and varied textures that balance familiar rhythms with more left field touches for an unsettling sense of the uncanny. There's also something indefinable about the production, something raw that suggest an artist rejecting the ultra-polished sounds of his peers, instead embracing the imperfections." Check out the premiere here and follow Lemon Future here.
"COHOBA" BY DAWN SAFARI FEATURED ON NEST HQ
Dawn Safari released a new single entitled "Cohoba" which was premiered by Nest HQ. The song is a percussive romp through club-inspired tribalism inspired by Dawn Safari's ancestry and esoteric cultures. As Nest HQ explains, "After finding out his grandmother was a direct descendant of the indigenous Taíno tribe of the Caribbean and spending months researching the culture, he crafted a song that he feels represents the sounds of their Cohoba ceremony, which includes festivities, psychotropics, and a journey into the tribe’s rich spirituality." Check out the feature here and get the free download here.
BILLBOARD PREMIERE - BEDROCKK FEAT. LYRIQUE "SHOW ME"
We were recently able to work with Billboard for the premiere of "Show Me" by Bedrockk featuring Lyrique - a driving dancehall twist on the old-school house classic "Show Me Love" by Robin S. As Billboard put it, "the duo's sonic chemistry was instantly electric, as they began collaborating over Skype on a unique sound that blends elements of Marquess' San Francisco with Lyrique's homebase, the Dominican capital of Rouseau." Check out the premiere here and get the free download from Bedrockk's Soundcloud.
