The top releases on Bleep, as selected by Jordan Rakei
This track is mind-blowingly lush and also heartbreaking. The way they've mixed the drums and bass is amazing. The first time I heard this outro, I nearly burst out in laughter, because I was struggling to comprehend how dense it was...Mental tune!
Live At Central Hotel
Rye Lane Volume One
Al Dobson Jr.
One of the first tracks that got me into house music, and inspired an alter ego side of me (Dan Kye). It's so raw and vibey. Love this one, and shout out to Rhythm Section!
Slam Dunk In a Black Hole
Channel the Spirits
The Comet Is Coming
An insanely underappreciated supergroup. Has elements of loads of music. Hip-hop, Jazz and electronica. Pretty much everything I'm into at the moment!
Theory of Colours
A beautiful mix of sound design and vibey electronic music. So many tasteful elements in this production. Everything seems so raw, but also so carefully mixed and placed.
Reflections - Mojave Desert
I love how Floating Points takes risks. He continues to push the envelope with his own music and I love that. This tune reminds me of some old Radiohead tunes, the way the guitars and heavy drums continue to pulse throughout. Big love for this EP.
Kindness for Weakness
So so sick. You can definitely hear that it was produced by Georgia Anne Muldrow. She's amazing too. I love his flow and conversational style of rap. Really sick. Also loads of funny elements on this album.
Immunity (Special Edition)
The most beautiful song in the world. A song I want to be played at my funeral. The tension and release is amazing.
Obviously a bit of a side-ball to my usual taste, but you can't fault this one. Amazing voice. Beautifully simple arrangement and great band. Shout out to Tom for introducinng me to Laura Marling. She's now one of my favorite artists!
Absolute Zero EP
Love this new EP by Moses. This first track is the standout for me. Lovely bed of synths, and his drumming is, as always, amazing! Incredible stuff.
Can't do a playlist without putting a Radiohead tune in there. One of my favourites from them. Love the guitar playing, the chords and the commitment to playing the Ride right from the intro...!
