Clockwork Indigo is the new collaborative project of Brooklyn rap groups The Underachievers and Flatbush Zombies. The similar natures of subject matter and rapping style makes this supergroup a perfect match as the chemistry between all 5 rappers couldn't be stronger. Just a month after debuting their first single “Butterfly Effect", Clockwork Indigo have unveiled a five track, self titled EP full of non-stop relentless verses over the typical eerie production by Erick Arc "The Architect" Elliot of Flatbush Zombies. Listen below to the EP in it's entirety. This newfound collective will be hitting the road, look at dates and info below the player. Enjoy!

Using their production talents alone, emerging Seattle-based duo ODESZA have proved themselves a no "flash in the pan" act after a string of chilled out releases including a remix of Pretty Lights "Lost and Found", their "My Friends Never Die" EP and a remix of Zhu's "Faded" plus a supporting role on Pretty Lights nationwide "A Color Map of the Sun" tour last year. Since then, the guys have embarked on spreading their music to the masses at various festivals and series of soldout headliner shows while finding time to work on their debut album titled In Return. ODESZA's truly unique blend of infectious soulful vibes, future bass aesthetics, what you could call chill trap elements, on top of endless supply of organic live instruments are all on display for an album that shines bright and dares to inspire ones creativity. This will guaranteed be a trendsetter amongst the growing future bass genre world.

Gifting listeners with 13 singles on this release, the album transitions through a fascinating array of future sounding elements with even greater influences within the bass spectrum on display. The opening tracks are completely cinematic in design and have a tranquil flow to them that is relaxing yet engaging at the same time. The soulful foundation created on "All We Need" for Shy Girls to lay down a lush set of vocals is a thing of beauty as a series of melodic keyboard sections, wooden blocks, and cleaver bass twists leave a lasting imprint on the audible senses. We are also gifted with one of the strongest tracks on the record "Say My Name" featuring singer Zyra which got brough to life with a very impressive music video paying an ode to the movie Mullholland Drive. This brings me to ODESZA's use of amazing vocalists on this album; each track boasting an emerging singer / songstress had me consistently wondering how did they collect such a strong cast of vocal talent? The remainder of the release continues to enchant listeners leading all the way up to the albums very first single "Sun Models", which has become my personal anthem of the summer due to its top notch production that oozes in feel good vibes from start to finish. 

ODESZA have perfected the art of creating superior musical compositions, with In Return being everything I had anticipated since we first heard the news of the duo producing an album. We are already seeing the start of what we can expect to be a long string of remixes from the project, and rightfully so. Listen to the full stream of the album below and pick up your copy through iTunes. Enjoy!

Pretty Lights turned heads new and old with the release of his Grammy nominated A Color Map Of the Sun album that incorporated the revolutionary production method of recording to vinyl then sampling his own vinyl to create each track. Throughout the multi-year process it took to create the album, he ended up having quite a few b-side tracks that never made the cut. He has released a very special vinyl full of the B-Sides and more remixes from his album called The Hidden Shades in spirit of Record Store Day that took place this Saturday (April 19th). While they are only available to own through the limited vinyl release, we have the full stream for your listening pleasure. 

The release features 4 new originals alongside 4 remixes of those new tracks from Odesza, Blue Sky Black Death, Emancipator and Love and Light. We had a taste of the release with "Lost and Found" alongside the incredible remix from Odesza
