Our curator Free Anckaert is back with a new playlist loaded with personal favourites and overlooked tracks.
A lot of artists from the boiling underground scene are unfortunately flying under our radar. Hopefully, our Brussels-based curator Free Anckaert scours through hundreds of SoundCloud tracks to bring the best of them to the surface. Check a few of his favourites and stream the whole playlist below.
Mount Liberation Unlimited – “BODY LANGUAGE (MOUTH MIX)”
Mount Liberation Unlimited is a Swedish electro disco pop duo constisting of Tom Lagerman and Niklas Janzon. When I read ‘Body language’ was the title of they’re new baby, I though it’d be a remake of Booka Shade’s “Body Language” like Jax Jones’ “You Don’t Know Me” but WITH the reference. Instead MLU’s “Body Language” is a lovely disco song that goes with two versions: the Swedish Version and this lovely mouth mix.
88rising: Rich Brian – “watch out!” / NIKI
88rising is a musical platform and label for Asian artists. The home of artists as Rich Brian and NIKI, but also of Rina Sawayama (who conquered our heart with last year’s album “RINA”), Keith Ape and Higher Brothers. I think these artists are just the beginning of a new generation Asian artists (also looking at you Yaeji) capturing our ‘Western’ ears.
Sylvere – “Straightjacket” (Green Ray EP)
Paris based producer Sylvere is specialised in grimey synth “seduced by the staccato rhythms from UK Funky” if we may believe his Facebook page. This song – all of his brand new Green Ray EP tbh) is so bouncey, bubbly danceable it’s just a matter of time the guy is dj’ing at parties like Brussels based Los Ninos or Beursschouwburg.
