Keith Varick – Boundless

Keith Varick is an alt-electro artist from NYC whose sound is the vein of Radiohead, M83, and Depeche Mode.

Heavily influenced by the introspective melancholia of 90s alternative music with modern electronica, ethereal melodies on top of heavyedgy synths and pulsing beats, Varick lyrically explores themes of advaita, non-duality, and enlightenment.

He has recently released his Boundless EP, the title track for which you can hear below. The stunning video sees Keith running through old doors across lonesome, beautiful landscapes.

Sounds like; Thom Yorke, Depeche Mode, Thomas Azier, M83

The international duo Pistol Shrimp is back with stunning new track ‘Where I Go’.

The feel-good track takes on more of a tropical vibe; full of trumpets and 80’s-inspired synths. It really is the perfect tune to see summer out with.

The generous duo is offering a free download of the track on their Facebook page, along with the free download of the insanely good debut ‘Hearts EP’.

Le Youth – Dance With Me (feat. Dominique Young Unique)

Le Youth

Le Youth

Le Youth (aka Wes James or ‘The Youth’ if you are in France) is the uber cool remixer of the moment.

Growing up in Ohio during the US R&B and UK garage peak of the 90’s (and later moving to L.A.), there are clear cross-border influences in Le Youth’s music. To date, remixes under his belt include those of Sam Smith and Disclosure.

His latest tropitronica triumph is ‘Dance With Me’ featuring Dominique Young Unique whereby Le Youth samples TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’. Check out the cheeky vid below:

It is undoubtedly clear that Le Youth does it all for the absolute love of music, which makes him a pretty loveable guy. Oh yea son we’re talking to you.

He has just finished his UK tour, but we are sure he’ll be back in no time.

Purchase on iTunes via Sign Of The Times here.
