SWAGE – How We Do [FREE DOWNLOAD]

SWAGE recently gave out a tormenting break-beat track that breathes life in to the dance floor for free download on the cloud. “How We Do” is the freshest slice of pie from SWAGE that delivers a thump with a drizzle of wtf on top.

HEKLER and WHIPPED CREAM’s Immersive New Work, Mirrors EP

It seems that when HEKLER and WHIPPED CREAM made the decision to come together and give us their Mirrors EP, they temporarily forgot what genres were. And we are so much the better for that. From the first titular track to the very end, Mirrors EP is an immersive journey of epic proportions. You never fully recognize this unique bass heavy atmosphere you are given.
