PHOTEY – RECONSTRUCT FEAT. SEAFLOOR

Aw my gawsh. This is a true head snapping, straight funky and very sexy track. Coming from the Astro Nautico camp, Photey will release his self-titled album late this summer. Photey studied music in West Africa, where he also got his nickname from. Photey means white-person in Susu. Pretty cool. He is known for blending various styles, as you can here in this mix. This first single, and collaboration with Seafloor, is truly amazing. Have a listen and get excited for his new release.

ASTRO NAUTICO’S VINYL FANTASY

Back in 2008 Astro Nautico started as a radio show in Montreal, Canada, hosted by Paul Jones. Later on he, Kuhn and Obey City started forming Astro Nautico in NY. It has grown into a forward thinking label with some very impressive releases. Especially their compilation series.The next step they want to take is releasing vinyls. But to achieve this goal, they need the help of their fans. They’ve started up a Kickstarter project to raise money. Move on over here to give some support, and watch this humorous inspirational movie.

The first release will be by Chits.

ASTRO NAUTICO – ATLANTICS VOL. 3

Do you remember Atlantics vol. 2? That compilation from last year that featured names like Baauer, Obey City, Time Wharp and many others who were on the point of breaktrough? Well, that compilation was insane. Yesterday, on 4/20 (hope you had a good smoke day!), Astro Nautico released their third compilation, with a completely different group of talented artists. The genres span from house to hi-fi footwork and grainy new wave. Download yours after the jump!

DANE CHADWICK – COOL INTENTIONS

My guess is that Dane will blow up, thanks to this release. On his new record he combines wavy samples with synths, supported by slick footwork rhythms, that together make original compositions. Dane Chadwick has spent years as a drummer for LA-based bands, and you can definitely hear that in his music. He doesn´t just use those ordinary drum rolls, but brings subtle shifts in his rhythms, what makes these tracks exciting. We will keep this release on repeat for a while.
