Black Thought, Bahamadia, T3 and Baatin of Slum Village hop on this Spacek track which was featured on the b-side of their classic 2000 single “Eve.”
The Lost is the second track to be released from 7hirdwav3′s debut self-titled EP. This song went through a few revisions before being released in its present form. We initially had a live drummer on it and eventually it was decided to revamp the whole music side of the song and leave the synth laden ethereal sounds that they’re developing into their music.
While normally spending most of his time producing tracks, Krispy Hendrixx decided to get behind the mic and release his first solo project, Beauty of Sounds Most of the songs were done at Flatline Studios.
Stewart Villain twists up Load B’s “Umerica” with some Weeknd inspired sampling.
An audible design that paints a picture for the listener of what creates an everyday villain. Pain, turmoil, torture, revenge. Submitted for the Hans Zimmer Bleeding Fingers contest. The contest required using one of several audio stems and reincorporating it into an original piece. I used the flutes that come in at 58 seconds.

Born in 1991, Vinnie Dewayne was raised in North Portland, Oregon in a small low-income neighborhood called St Johns. He grew up in a lively household with his parents and five older siblings. The soulful sounds of Al Green, Aretha Franklin, and Jerry Butler resonated throughout the house non-stop. At six years old, Vinnie began being drawn to another genre of music and was heavily influenced by the Hip-Hop sound of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. Vinnie’s oldest brother saw his attraction to the culture and taught him how to write rhymes and compose verses in the structure of songs.

This reDesign takes you on a much darker and melancholy personal reflection of Vinnie’s highs and lows as an artist.

Sometimes you just need a fresh start. That phrase means something different for each person, but for Austin Kane it meant reinventing the music he’d been making for the past few years. The young producer currently attending Icon Collective in Los Angeles ditched his old moniker and the entire genre of trance, leaving behind his past fixations to seek greener pastures. In essence, he wanted something new. With that very change came Austin’s Fault. It wasn’t the first time though, dating back to his high school days when he would experiment with mixing metal and electronic music before that was even a thing. From that to trance, and now this.
On the first track stemming from Austin’s Fault, we witness the Oregon grown musician remix “Strong” by London Grammar. Fitting to say the least. Taking on a song that describes the very manifestation of a change like this, destroying what he’d already built and returning to square one. The lyric “If a lion roars would you not listen” rings true to this, portraying the struggle of any unknown artist to be heard.
With this remix, we get a strong sense that he has finally found his niche. Flickering synthesizers, crashing snares and aptly placed 808’s enrapture the listener’s entire psyche, gently coming together under Hannah Reid’s empowering vocals and creating true immersion. It’s meant to be heard multiple times in row, eyes firmly sealed shut and with lights completely dimmed. Each time you pick up a fresh nuance, and each time you feel more connected with the track. Don’t be ashamed if you immediately become physically addicted; it’s all Austin’s Fault.
