Despite the vinyl I’ve managed to accumulate over the years, I only have one turntable at home, and it’s kind of dinky, too. Oh how I wish I had some quality old school turntables, but I should learn how to set them up and properly take care of them first. For now, I’ll pretend I’m jamming out to this new Matt DiMona off of one such apparatus as I sway and spin to the Los Angeles producer’s chill late night vibes. Old School Turntables’ jazzy soul, mellow pop, and twinkling electronica are imbued with a classic hip hop beat, as well as effortlessly smooth, fleecy smooth vocals. Matt DiMona’s buddy Max Rice plays guitar on the track. Old School Turntables certainly proves how much of a production/singer songwriter chameleon Matt DiMona truly is. You can grab the jam from Bandcamp, here.

When I hear the name Atlantis, I think of a magical world, hidden and lost in the depths of a great ocean. Intensely colored sea creatures dart to and fro while magical artifacts shimmer from underneath the sand. It’s rather romantic and picturesque, come to think of it. We’re taken into that sweet wondrous world by Los Angeles singer songwriter Bridgit Mendler as she serenades us with her chill effervescent blanket of future pop, mellow hip hop, and candied R&B on new single, Atlantis, which also features Florida hip hop talent Kaiydo on tranquil rap vocals. We dive into the deep sea, lured by the watery churning and atmospheric serenity of this halcyon lullaby. Atlantis can be purchased from iTunes. Bridgit Mendler will be releasing a debut EP named Nemesis on November 4th.
