Sal Dulu is a solo producer and instrumentalist from Dublin. He has just released his third release “Tyko” and it is a track dripping in atmosphere. It could be the sound track for Stranger Things or Twin Peaks with its nocturnal chillwave vibes and just a touch of hip hop inspiration.

Sal Dulu has been playing and writing music from his early teens in Dublin and now at 24 has developed a unique sound that doesn’t sit comfortably in any genre. He has a distinctive style with electronic and jazz influences interleaved with original instrumental accompaniment.

April 2018 Mixtape

TNLF-podcast-2017-04-April

The April Mixtape is here. We’ve collected all the best music posted to the blog this month and created this eclectic mix for you to enjoy. Emphasis on eclectic. There is a lot of hip hop, a bit of indie and rock, and some house to finish you off.

The mix starts off with a hair-raising new remix of Lorde’s track, “Green Light” and then drops you into some new indie music. The indie softens out into a cumbia inspired tribal song by Wiki Chaves and then starts to pick up the pace with a few chillwave tracks. Chillwave starts to blend into hip hop and soul and this continues for the next 20 mins. The hip hop starts to get more and more electronic until about 39 minutes in when it goes full house music.

So if you are into discovering new music and listening to loads of different genres, this is the mix for you.

Learn more about each artist by clicking on the track title in the playlist below. You can also download the whole mix by right clicking on the title of the podcast and selecting “Save As…”

Wiki Chaves

avatars-000421928708-qbygme-t500x500

Wiki started playing guitar as a teenager in his hometown Buenos Aires. He grew up covering grunge, punk and hard rock classics with close friends in his parents’ garage. In the early 2000’s he formed the indie rock band Olaguer and released one EP.

After finishing school and doing a long trip around South America he became curious about organic field-recorded sounds. When he returned home he studied classical guitar and charango which led him down the path of becoming a solo recording artist.

In 2011 he moved to San Francisco, California and began listening to and experimenting with electronic music.

In 2017 he launched his first solo album called Camino, an instrumental album inspired by the spirit of a road trip. The album is a blend of different sounds and styles from traditional Argentine folklore, Andean music, electronic and California surf music.

In March 2018, he released his second album, Andante, a continuation of his previous work. This album, more guitar-centric, mixes different influences like Latin American cumbia, ambient techno, downtempo electronic and melodically-driven guitar riffs. The lead single, “Tribal” starts out as a classical Latin American track which slowly morphs into a rhythm filled Cumbia track that will have you up and dancing around a small campfire to.

Luttrell – Intergalactic Plastic

Lutterel-avatars-000411730386-z2g0x8-t500x500

Luttrell’s unique brand of melodic techno has seen him gain heavy support from BBC Radio 1 and notch up over 3.9 million streams on Spotify. Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Kolsch, and Joris Voorn have all championed his productions, inspired by everything from the sunsets of his hometown of San Francisco, to DJing at Burning Man. His early musical influences include Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, and The Prodigy, but a semester spent studying in Berlin introduced him to techno.

Now a mainstay of the Anjunadeep touring family, Luttrell has played major venues on both sides of the Atlantic, from Exchange in LA to London’s Phonox. 2018 has seen him play Holy Ship, and support Above & Beyond and Lane 8 on their US tours, with more major festival slots to be announced soon.

Luttrell has returned with his first release of 2018, the three track Intergalactic Plastic EP. Check it out below.

Earlier this year Eskimo released Greek producer NTEIBINT’s “A State Nearby,” a collaboration with his frequent musical sparring partner indie-pop singer Σtella. The label later commissioned German producer Adam Port to remix the track, and below is the fantastic result.

Happy Friday raving.

Flasher: Skim Milk

It’s likely impossible to be artists hailing from Washington DC and be devoid of political commentary, and DC’s melodic punk outfit Flasher are certainly no exception to the rule. Part of the new wave of disaffected youth, Flasher are two years removed from their critically acclaimed EP, S/T, and set to release a swath of new material. Their latest single “Skim Milk” brims with confidence, a frantic anthem to resistance, and a taste of what the band has in store. In their own words:

“The themes in ‘Skim Milk’ and its video might be described as being haunted by your own desire for belonging. We’re not bemoaning “no future, no fate”, we’re advocating for it. From getting a mortgage, to going to college, to crafting public policy, folks are always telling you to think of your future, to make choices in the name of some future. But most folks don’t have the privilege to live outside the present. This kind of future tense, aspirational bullshit means being held hostage by a future that’s already abandoned you. We’d rather escape to something new and unknown than hold out for a good life that hates us and expects us to make lemonade out of miserableness. Instead of holding out and hanging on, we’re here to tell you (and ourselves) – “go.””

We managed to catch them for a set on their current tour and they blew us away. Check out the dates below!
