There's been a great response to our call-out for tracks to play at INTRO NY in New York this week, and we'll be featuring some of our favourites on Dezeen Music Project over the coming days and weeks.
Here's another track by British trio We Have Band, who we discovered at the MINI Paceman Garage in Milan this year. Where Are Your People? is taken from the band's most recent album, Ternion, released last year on French label Naïve Records.
You can watch the music video for the song here.
We Have Band is a UK-based electronic indie band, who played on Friday last week at the MINI Paceman Garage in Milan. Divisive is an up-beat, disco-infused song, which we used as the soundtrack for our latest video report from Milan.
The song is taken from We Have Band's debut album, WHB, which was released in 2010 on French label Naïve Records.
Newport-based producer 800xL has sent us this sparse, stripped-down remix of a track called Tutto Bene by Italian artist Jolly Mare, which is part of a remix competition being held by record label Bad Panda Records.
You can listen to the original track here.
This is a remix of a track by Japanese artist Yu-Chi, which we featured on Dezeen Music Project back in August last year. The original track is both weird and beautiful, a quality that BLKrKRT's remix retains, while introducing a darker, more brooding intensity.
You can listen to the original track here.
Gazelle is another South African group that we discovered at the Design Indaba Music Circuit in Cape Town last week. As this track called Options demonstrates, Gazelle fuse traditional African music with elements from the electro, disco and synth-pop genres to create an eclectic sound that they call Lim Pop.
This is the track that we featured in our first movie from Design Indaba in Cape Town. It's by a young South African DJ and producer called Kimon, who played a set here in Cape Town as part of the Design Indaba Music Circuit.
You can watch the movie here.
Make sure you also check out the track we featured on Wednesday by the great Spoek Mathambo.
This track by Human Machine is a tribute to the late, great trumpet player Donald Byrd, who passed away last week. Byrds in Heaven is a gentle electronica track, which features a mournful sample of Byrd's playing.
American musician Brian Lewis Smith has made his latest track I Could See You As A Mayan available exclusively to Dezeen Music Project. Right now, this is the only place you'll be able to hear it.
I Could See You As A Mayan is a gentle, lo-fi instrumental with delicate keyboard melodies and bass-lines that emerge from the warm crackle of tape fuzz. "It was the first time that I used a cassette tape recorder extensively," Smith told Dezeen Music Project. "The idea was to amplify all of the little crunch and hiss sounds that come from using older gear in order to create a bed of texture that the tune can lay upon."
This production technique provides the perfect platform for Smith, whose background is in jazz music, to demonstrate his musicianship. Melodic phrases weave intricately in and out of earshot throughout the track, with subtle variations and flourishes that only reveal themselves after repeat listens.
Hungarian DJ and producer Fine Cut Bodies has given us all a late Christmas present by making this little-known collaboration with Brighton-based musician Fink available for free download. Route is a mellow trip-hop track which, although composed over eight years ago, still sounds fresh in 2013.
Download it here while you can.
You can listen to other tracks by Fine Cut Bodies that we've featured on Dezeen Music Project here.
Here's another track by American designer and musician Glen Lib, whose music is featured on our latest Dezeen Live movies. Like all Lib's tracks, Micro Melody is fun, funky and full of quirky synth sounds.
This catchy, upbeat track by designer and musician Glen Lib provides the soundtrack for today's Dezeen Live movie featuring east London designer Philippe Malouin.
Mostly Always Right is the track featured on today's movie about Philips' Lumiblade OLED technology, which is by a Newport-based producer called 800xL. 800xL describes the track as "ambi-sci-fi-future-funk", and who are we to disagree?
