Updates from the RPM Department

Greetings, KZSCers!

There’s a lot going on in the RPM department right now. We’ve been flooded with so many great releases in the past few weeks that some may have flown under your radar. Here’s a roundup of best releases has received as of late:

Tensnake – Glow: Ranging from house to disco and taking sonic queues from the likes of Disclosure and Daft Punk (even going so far as to feature Nile Rogers on a track!), Tensnake delivers 16 tracks of hip-shaking goodness for your worthy ears. I am sure it will be throughly rinsed out on KZSC’s electronic shows.

Patten – Estoile Naiant: On the more experimental, ambient side of the electronic palette, Patten has created a lush maze of sound to sink into. Using elements of drone, techno, drum and bass, and found sounds, Patten creates a deep sonic universe in which you can easily immerse yourself in.

Thomas White – Ariose EP: Built for the club, Thomas White’s Ariose EP turns up by combining trapped-out percussion and hard-hitting bass with smooth chords and range of unique samples. This is absolutely one to play loud!

I also thought I’d include one last one from up-and-coming 17-year-old producer Dolphin Tears; some classic Jersey Club:

Considered your itch for new music scratched, KZSCer’s! Until next time!
