BICEP, a project helmed by Belfast-born, London-based duo Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson, just released their eponymous debut album last Friday, and it’d be criminal not to take a prolonged moment to extol their captivating electronica. The duo’s sound is founded on the blueprint of classic house, techno, electro, and Italo disco, but morphed and transformed such that it couldn’t be anything else but BICEP. Album track Vale is a dusky hypnotic, restless thrumming spectacular that takes us on a journey of euphoria and catharsis. Hints of UK house, garage, and R&B season the sublime track. The pair also released a music video for AURA last week, another stand out cut from their self titled full length. Watch the visualizer below as you dance away to its dark techno and gothy trance brilliance, much reminiscent of some of Crystal Castles and TR/ST’s production, but in a more uplifting and ecstatic manner. The songs, and BICEP’s debut EP, are available from iTunes, here.

Ibiza born, Antigua raised newcomer Au/Ra won us over with a vividly bewitching debut just a few short months ago named Concrete Jungle, and we’ve been eagerly awaiting a second single since. She makes a haunting return on Kicks, a dark tempestuous electronic pop offering with ominous brooding synths and profound lyrics. Flickering shadows reminiscent of Lorde meet MS MR like booming robustness on this resounding gem. Kicks is out now on iTunes.

When I think of a “concrete jungle”, a picture of boring skyscrapers and dull asphalt streets arises in my mind. Newcomer Au/Ra’s Concrete Jungle contrasts that image. This thoroughly bewitching electro and minimalist pop song is leafy green and splashy prismatic. The alleyways in this mirage are ripe with dazzling foliage and magical creatures. Concrete Jungle is a fantastically vibrant first single from Au/Ra, a new artist who was born in Ibiza but raised in Antigua. I’d like to hike through the boulevards of a metropolis at night while listening to this song. The mundane and banal landscape will be painted over in a most imaginative and extravagant manner by Au/Ra. If you can’t easily tell from Concrete Jungle, Au/Ra loves marrying make-believe with reality and presenting it with infectious pop melodies. Au/Ra’s debut single was released earlier today and can also be streamed on Spotify.

I think I’m barely making any sense anymore within these last few posts, but I have a few final ones to go that I’ve been wanting to share since yesterday, including this seriously sick new tune from French producer Stwo, who’s dropped our jaws many a times before with his stellar remixes. On original Aura, Stwo takes a lighter, more delicate approach. The slick future beats production is full of airy shimmers and gentle flitters, but it’s full on haunting and mesmerizing from start to finish. Stwo will be heading out on a North American tour come mid-October, with a stop in San Francisco on the 17th at 1015 Folsom.
