THE MOTEL

beats future soul hiphop lofi

THE MOTEL

Future soul and lofi hiphop producer Goro Kumai recently uploaded two full length releases "THE MOTEL" and "Wandering Beats Vol.1" to bandcamp. Two fully realized 13 track albums of slick and soulful instrumentals. Full of sexy and sophisticated sample work reminiscent of Souls of Mischief era beat composition. While they are both excellent releases I prefer The Motel. Beyond making music Goro does all their own visual art as well as running a music program for those looking to become proficient with an Akai MPC sampler. These calm, cool and collected songs have the potential to add a touch of normalcy to your summer....

Mutazione OST

ambient chill OST punk soundtrack VGM

Mutazione OST

Akupara Games are responsible for publishing some of the most stunningly beautiful and strikingly original indie projects of this era. Games like "Desert Child", "Ether Born" and the upcoming "Spinch". Last year they released "Mutazione" an adventure game that explores themes of courage, abandonment and the importance of genuine interpersonal connections. The emotional weight of the game is held up by it's exquisite soundtrack. The first time I heard Alessandro Coronas's work was back in 2011 playing an adorable little game called "Where Is My Heart?" on the Playstation Portable. The soundtrack was essentially chiptune influenced lofi hiphop with ambient sections. What...

Wonder Underground

chill cute jazz pop

Wonder Underground

Multi genre artist ぷにぷに電機 aka punipunidenki aka Puniden creates music spanning a wide range of influences but what remains consistent throughout every release is a sense of elegance. It is generally quite difficult to find future funk or city pop built from the ground up with original vocals but on many of Puniden's albums this is achieved with incredible attention to detail. A good example can be seen in Puniden's collaboration with vapor legend ミカヅキBIGWAVE on the "MIRAI addiction" EP just a few months prior to the release we are here to discuss. "Wonder Underground" is a latin jazz inspired 4 song EP with outstanding vocal work and warm playful instrumentals. Bedroom pop and breathy...

Moestorm EP

cute future bass kawaii bass trap

Moestorm EP

Kawaii bass, anime samples, modular synth sounds and trap fundamentals. "Moestorm" is the newest EP from electronic artist tomatoism from Yokohama, Japan. A favourite of KOF crew member Lil Kevo 303. Genre wise they dabble in all things adorable. Creating future funk that is fun and glitchy, future bass that is super clean and emotionally uplifting and even a little fast and flirty breakcore. This release is darling from front to back. I encourage you to follow tomatoism on soundcloud where they are the most active! Favourite track "Riamu". FFO: In Love With a Ghost, Lil Kevo 303, punipunidenki Find more of their music below! tomatoism.bandcamp.com soundcloud.com/tomatoism
