When you hear the phrase “electro wunderkinds”, you think “wow, I’m curious to know where this music is from.” Germany? New York? Los Angeles? Miami? London? How about Salt Lake City. Oh, Be Clever are from SLC and they are getting a chance to share brand of electro goodness with the comforting “Blanket”. Oh, Be Clever consists of producer Cory Layton and vocalist Brittney Shields. Get to know them and know them well.
(Atypeek/I.O.T.) is a new EP released by DOOKOOM and what is a DOOKOOM? They are a South African electro-hip-hop outfit from Cape Town, and they want to introduce you to their song “Dirty”, which may be very dirty or is just a title to lure you into their vibe.
The guys in Department M (that’s two men, along with a few friends as the band they perform with for live shows) have come out with a new 7″ single Hide & Seek Records called “Bleak Technique”, and they’re hoping you’d be interested in checking it out. They’re not posting the A-side but would like for you to flip the record over and check its B-side, so listen to “Long Way Into Your Heart”.
Finnish duo Ideomotor only formed last year but their music is making people aware of who they are fairly quickly. They play indielectro (I don’t know either) but Kimmo Myllyviita and Erkka Wennonen are making sure once you hear them, you will be sporting “Indielectro Pride” bumper stickers on your cars. Their debut EP For A Moment We Are Strangers was released earlier this year so to get on the indie side of their electro(des), check out “Amplified”, which is said to be “anthemic”.

Hayley Kiyoko will be releasing a new set of music with an EP coming up, but to get locked in with what she’s about, take a listen to “This Side Of Paradise”. You’ll also get a chance to know about her in the live adaptation film of Jem And The Holograms but get into her music first.
Randomer is back with an all new recording, a new 3-song EP that finds him on a new label (L.I.E.S.) making some very interesting electronic pulsations. The title track gets into a bit of a comfortable repetition, almost tribal at times, almost meditative but allow tie rhythm to capture you and you’ll find yourself nicely trapped in it. “Jakobs Dream” comes off a bit more electric and high voltage at times, as if its pulse is trying to have a life of its own. “Huh” gets a little bit old school on the electro side, as if you can imagine a bunch of b-boys and b-girls running to the dance floor, jerking their heads and bodies in a maniacal fashion and not wanting to stop. It’s almost as if this couldn’t have been made from one person but what unites them is how great these tracks are, not only from one another but that it’s another from one Randomer. Random, like his name but different.
In Khan We Trust is the new EP from newly-signed OWSLA artist Valentino Khan, whose work you may know if you’ve been keeping your ears to the pulse of whatever is pulsing these days, I don’t know. What I may not know, you should know very well, you know? Now he has a new set of music to himself, which you may hear in its entirety at this very second. Press play now and be enthused.
