The 10 Best 90’s Dub Mixes, according to Theo Kottis
Incorporating talent from across the globe, check out our five Tracks of the Week taken from our meticulously-curated ‘BRAND NEW’ playlist showcasing some of the most exciting up-and-coming talents around.
1. myKeL – ‘i don’t see a thing’
It’s not often someone emerges from the underground with an ability to create fully immersive sonic worlds to get lost in, however, this is something 22-year-old myKel has been able to accomplish. Carving out an alternative sound sprinkled with elements of emo rap, hip hop and hyperpop, ‘i don’t see a thing’ sees the Miami-native shed his feelings through a series of lethargic flows.
2. New Sylveon & Meroshi – ‘zabivaka’
New Sylveon’s maximalist blend of cloud rap, lo-fi trap and glitched-out EDM is flying the flag for hyperpop in Russia. Pairing radiant bubblegum production with the track’s surrealist autotune vocals; ‘zabivaka’ is an experimental number funnelling a host of genre-pushing styles into one flamboyant cut.
3. Sebastian Kamae – ‘Texture’
Dutch artist and producer Sebastian Kamae can bring the right vibes to almost every situation with his smooth deployment of live instruments and jazzy lo-fi sounds. Teaming up with rappers Blvck Svm and Roosevelt the Titan to provide the flows, Kamae’s subtle trap production makes ‘Texture’ a strong return to form.
4. Mary K – ‘After Life’
Creating sensory experiences which touch on gender-related themes, Mary K explores aspects of femininity and masculinity through experimental electronic pop soundscapes. ‘After life’ is a culmination of Mary’s dream-like sound, employing a mix of computerised sounds and vocals to create a vivid sonic world.
5. Santovasb – ‘yea yea’
Taken from his recent ‘B4A B4A’ EP, ‘yea yea’ showcases rising rapper Santovasb’s gripping lyrical style. Teaming up with Syren for some added flows, the UK talent breezes over the trap-heavy production with laser precision.
