Fauxe - Recommended 4 U
Singaporean mastermind, Fauxe has definitely been making his time in Kuala Lumpur worthwhile, especially with the release of his eight-track spectacular, Recommended 4 U. Armed with his SP-404, the album features a healthy mix of mellow, bright melodies and rugged percussions. “The entire beat tape developed when I realised I haven’t made beats with my 404 in a long time. So this is a no rules free format one time takes of music that I’ve been sampling,” Fauxe wrote.
Elintseeker - Gerwalk
Fuzz Lee AKA Elintseeker has been impressing local music fans with his trademark of tranquil and ambient offerings for quite some time now. He continues to impress the fans with his latest release, Gerwalk. “The source material was recorded as a documentation of random ideas in preparation as well as a form of improvisational practice for a live performance art and sculpture event, which none of the material ended up being used,” he wrote on his Tumblr page. He basically created these amazing tunes by reassembling discarded recordings.
Robert Miles - Children (Mica Remix)
Robert Miles’ classic tune, “Children” remains one of the most iconic electronic dance music tracks ever. It has influenced and encouraged other artists to constantly reinterpret the original version into various vibes. This particular remix by Mica, an English DJ and producer based in Manila takes the tempo a notch or two to give it the perfect chilled out treatment.
