Ben Sims reignites his dormant Symbolism imprint for 2015. Last active in 2006, Symbolism is about music with real mood and will continue to impart Sims' vision of techno through releases from newcomers and established acts alike. The first release comes from D_Func and includes an edit from Sims himself.
Already home to the likes of Khurt, Staunch and Au5 & Fractal, Australia's leading neuro hop, glitch and dubstep label Adapted have now welcomed Kosmo to the fold. Usually heard as one half of duo DonKong, bass fiend Kosmo has produced a seven track mini album that sees him fuse wobbly dubstep with all manner of their influences. Highlights include the hip-hop meets Ed Banger dub-cruncher "Mojo", the snarling filthy house of "Sirene" and the stadium dance-hop anthem "Money", which features the extra talents of SakeSake and Adam Tensta.
Clear anything you have from your hectic schedule for the next 25 minutes and allow yourself to be taken to another world by newcomer ELWD. Originally released on cassette and limited to 100 copies, "Dreamwaves" is now available as one extended digital narrative. At points lolloping, at others languishing and constantly peppered in classic hip-hop sample science, it's a hazy, smokey, somnambulant sojourn into cloud-bound hip-hop and timeless beats. Headphones were made for journeys like this.
