International Baby – Monkey Flute

Steadily building up a steady reputation for themselves in Germany, new producers on the block International Baby release the hugely distinctive “Monkey Flute” this week – and it is set to turn heads.

This unmistakably catchy single fuses dynamic, super speedy flute riffs with an undercurrent of vocals that continue to develop throughout. from the start. The track soon glides into a deep house sound, keeping a rhythmically strong beat as its use of flute still plays an integral part in the tune’s final sound.

“Monkey Flute” is one we are likely to hear more of as summer stretches on –  and clearly this is just the start of an interesting career from International Baby.

Gianni Marino & Mahesa Utara – No Time For Fake ft. Yacko

Undoubtedly showing a serious amount of production prowess with their latest single, which has been made as a collaboration, is Gianni Marino and Mahesa Utara. The Dutchman has brought his distinctive style together with the exotic stylings of Utara, and “No Time For Fake” is given further fire thanks to MC Yacko on vocal duties.

The pair has, individually, had a busy and prolific few months, and this release through Aussie label Be Rich is set to continue raising their profiles. “No Time For Fake” uses Yacko’s blistering bars atop a rhythmically bouncing bass line, plenty of stuttering riffs and weighty drops and slams for a seriously powerful result.

Tascione – Smoke & Mirrors

Never one to stay between the lines, producer Tascione has pushed boundries on his latest EP “Smoke and Mirrors”.

Released through UZ’s Quality Goods Records this month, the three-track EP is an awesome display of versatility from Tascione, who is clearly at ease at switching between styles and themes.

Up first comes the EP’s title track ft. Ian Everson; those smooth vocals providing a slick opening before the built up tension descends into a bass-ridden, weighty breakdown.

Tascione joins forces with Kompany for “Paranoia”, this one an atmospheric, murky number – before “Lights Out” drops, prepare for snappy riffs, snatches of pitched vocals and swooping, screeching drops. Finally we have “Enigma”, another thunderous dubstep/trap hybrid with an intense, reverbing bassline.

He says of “Smoke & Mirrors”, “When I started writing this EP, I knew I wanted something different. Smoke & Mirrors is a rollercoaster ride through different genres, breaking down the barriers that define them. I hope that this EP invokes emotions that people never thought they would experience from listening to “trap music.”
