Australia’s Night Tales first dazzled us late last year with their debut single Move You, a deep pumping, dark sweltering electronic ode to unrequited love. The duo, formed by producer Third Floor and singer songwriter Kamaliza (previously of Olympic Ayres), return with an ace new jam named Want, which we can’t stop wanting more of after grooving to our hearts content to the song’s balmy sunset house and silky crooning by guest vocalist fellow Australian songstress Kimono. Chill disco beats, sultry horns, and some sweet RÜFÜS vibes abound on the molten electronic track. Want is out now on Majestic Casual. Find it, here.

1st Vows’ Kimono is a delicately subtle and airy synthpop gem. The project was created by East Coaster Ryan Hunter, former member of several indie rock groups, including NK and Envy On The Coast. Kimono is a sensationally moving sultry electro soul meets gleaming electro pop jam. It’s taken from 1st Vows’ The Red EP, out April 7th.

Awhile back, I shared a mind blowing futuristic electronic and hip hop tune named Kimono by a mysterious French producer named Nömak. At the time, I noticed that the description said the track was the second part of a Kimono “quadrilogie”. Fast forward to today, and I still have no idea what that really means. At the time, I thought that Nömak was releasing some sort of four track compilation. Turns out, the compilation is made up of songs by various producers. The latest and third part of the “quadrilogie” is, also, named Kimono, but it’s by an enigmatic artist by the name of Devoted To God. I tried delving deeper into all of this, but it’s going to take a lot more time to figure it out (let’s just say the one tag entered for the song on SoundCloud is “filetmignon”…). In anycase, Devoted To God’s Kimono is, like the prior tracks from the quadrilogie, an epic experiment in sound. It’s an instrumental electronic hip hop tune with plenty of dramatic texture and Woodkid like orchestration (Woodkid and hip hop go very well together, by the way, but I digress). It reminds me of RL Grime and Hudson Mohawke, but perhaps on an even grander scale. Stream it above, then visit the first two tracks from the quadrilogie below, if you’d like, including L’homme aux 3 lettres’ Kimono and Nömak’s Kimono. Fourth part is forthcoming, I suppose!

Mysterious French producer Nömak, for whom I still cannot locate a Facebook profile or find much information on, has blown my mind again. It’s been a few months since I first featured his amazingly textured and complex productions. In what he calls the second part of a Kimono quadrilogie, he’s premiered what seems to be the title track. Once again, I’m transported to worlds unknown, taken on a journey beyond description, filled with fine tuned, almost palpable sound. It’s a majestic journey, telling an epic sonic story. Oh, and don’t miss those jazzy last seconds of piano. Revisit the previously featured and dramatic Clint, below.
