Ekali Shares New Sample Pack & Donates Proceeds Back to Vancouver High School Music Programs

ekali kit

With a diverse repertoire of releases such as the wonderfully sinister “Blame” with ZHU or the touching “Past Life” with Opia, fluid mixing skills displayed on his infectious “Awakening” mix series and much more, Ekali consistently stakes his claim as one of the fastest rising producers in the game right now. Today, however, the Canadian artist is proving his influence in a different way through giving back.

Yesterday Ekali announced the release of his “Ekali Kit Vol. III,” a sample pack for producers to use that features both remixes and original samples from songs like “Blame,” “Past Life” and “Babylon,” according to the pack’s description online. Instead of keep the profits this time around, Ekali will be donating all of the proceeds to high school music programs in his hometown of Vancouver, BC. Amid budget cuts and more, a problem that both the U.S. and Canada face in this day and age, many schools can’t afford to provide their students with basic instruments to play with. Ekali plans to purchase instruments for these students, with a plan to inform his fans how the money will be used in the works.

The pack’s starting price is $10, with the option available to donate even more. In just one day Ekali has raised a staggering $4,000, with artists like Dirty Audio even donating some of their cash to the cause. Find the pack below and enjoy!

Whethan Shares Dark, Experimental New Track “Be Like You” Ft. Broods

Whethan be like you

Whethan has been on fire and keeps the incredible releases coming. With a repertoire of staggeringly diverse releases, from the unbelievably catchy, synth-heavy collaboration with Charli XCX “love gang” to the more recent experimental Honey EP with none other than Louis The Child, the Chicago-based producer has used both his youth and creativity to push the limits of what it means to be an electronic artist.

Today Whethan is back with yet another experimental release, “Be Like You” featuring Broods. The producer takes things in a wonderfully dark direction this time around, enlisting gritty basslines and wonky synth melodies that flow perfectly beneath Broods’ haunting vocal style. As always, the single is impressively catchy, and it’ll no doubt have you hitting repeat again and again as we head into the weekend. Check it out below. Enjoy!

Mija Shares Stunning New Music Video For Standout Single “Notice Me” Off Debut EP

Mija Notice Me Video

It’s been a little over a month since diverse female producer Mija shared “Notice Me,” the second release off her debut HOW TO MEASURE THE DISTANCE BETWEEN LOVERS EP. The surprisingly emotional release marked an authentic new direction for the artist, as it’s the first time she sang on one of her own tracks. Her soothing vocals intertwined with the tender production impeccably, and it’s remained one of our favorite releases on the EP ever since.

Today Mija gifted us with the official video for “Notice Me,” and it’s made us fall in love with the track all over again.

The poignant video features Mija in a variety of locations, from beaches to fields to pacing around a neon-drenched room, all with blurry TV-static never too far away. The song’s stark shift from gentle production and vocals to an eastern, bass-heavy breakdown is marked in the video with surreal clips of flowers wilting, smoke blooming and more, with each emotional visual component falling in line with the arc of the song beautifully. Check it out below and enjoy!
