Let's kick off a new week by putting the spotlight on a newcomer based out of the San Francisco, CA area by the name of Slaptop and his funky dance ready debut single "Sunrise" on new label Ensemble Records. Filled to the brim with a cluster of melodic elements such as subtle drum and xylophone patterns, sexy saxophone solo's, and lyrics that bring chill vibes to the production. It's every bit as engaging as the title suggest and will have you hitting the replay button repetitively. Catch the world premiere below and pre-order the song on iTunes below. Enjoy

The live band / DJ hybrid duo Boombox are back with their latest original single following up ‘Lost Ya’ from earlier this year. ‘Waiting Around’ is a funky electronic indie single that is sure to put you in a good mood. It is the first single off the group’s new album Filling in the Color set to release January 14th. This song incorporates a large amount of live band elements from guitar solos to horns leaving us with a jam inspired twist reminding me of The Grateful Dead, which isn’t surprising with Guitar / Lead Vocalist Zion of Boombox being the son of two members from the group (Keith and Donna Jean Godchauxt). You can listen to the exclusive stream below. Enjoy.

Mad Decent and their new free Jeffree’s Record Label never dissapoint. Starting with the monumental Total Recall EP from Flosstradamus they have been on a hot streak with free and paid releases easily establishing themselves as one of the most diverse labels ever created. This new Magnet Jam EP is from Sibot and packs 3 incredible songs. He is based out of Africa and has done work for Die Antwoord which somewhat will give you an idea of his funky style. The first track “Magnet Jam” is an eerie funk filled glitch heavy bass BANGER that hits in all the right places. “No Question” takes you in a completely different direction with some crazy synths and wobbles. Then the last track “Tronarist” has a unique almost 80’s dance throwback flair to it, yet with Sibot’s agressive bass packed edge. All three make for an impressive EP, and for most of us a proper introduction to what Sibot is packing. Mad Decent always coming through. Please grab all three of these songs, turn them up, follow Sibot through his pages, enjoy!
