New jams from Oz! Inkswel is back with some amazing beat making and funk vibes.

Skit & Tijani: Smooth Operators

So I’m on my way back home the other night when I decided to check what’s playing on the radio. Now, considering myself somewhat of a music elitist who in fact never actually listens to any local radio stations, I decide to tune in to one of the two radio programs via internet that I exclusively subscribe to; BBC Radio 1Xtra. My other station of course being Klangbox.fm [inserts 2 thumbs up!] Never having been let down before and surely enough as the station came through the speakers; my ears were instantly filled with immense joy. Now the culprits responsible for this suddenly unexplainable case of head bobbing and body grooving are nun other than the incredible talents of Skit & Tijani. The song title: “Sweat”. This new electronic R&B banger is being released on Plastician’s (Dubstep and Grime pioneer) label Terrorhythm Recordings (UK). … MORE

Swanken

Local duo Swanken is Sean Levisman + Jonathan Schwab or as they describe themselves: “Two white boys on an epic quest to find that elusive thing called soul.” PetFood, So Sound, Musical Missionary have released some of their tracks although these boys are pretty generous on soundcloud where they’ve posted quite a few freebies. Expect deep house, garage, and some local collaborations… good stuff! … MORE
