In just over a month, we’ll be making our annual pilgrimage to SXSW in Austin. On our list of must see artists is Mallrat, the young Brisbane artist who’s making a fresh imprint on the electronica and pop scene with her creative and innovative music. Mallrat returns today with a new sleek shimmering gem named UFO, featuring fellow Australian Allday on hip hop inflected vocals. The captivating song only serves as more proof that Mallrat is going to have a huge 2018. As UFO progresses, it takes on a cosmic and intergalactic velour with darker synths and heavier beats. It’s a hypnotic and melodic venture deep into Mallrat’s edgy and bold sound. We can’t wait to hear the song live next month.

There are some bright new production talents on my radar today, one of which is Dallas resident Taylor Thomas, who likes to dabble in hybrid trap, future bass, cinematic sound design, and electro house. Taylor captured my attention and imagination with his new remix of fellow Texan acts Thani & UFO’s This Darkness, which features Morgan Wallace. His edited version starts off chill and modest, but then it builds to great heights of tense future bass and cascading electro, all finely balanced with the original’s passionate vocals. Having had this taste of Taylor Thomas’ production dynamism, I had to delve further, only to find that he’d dropped a sweeping trap original earlier this month named Heartbreaker, featuring Lauren Cole. Stream that gem below, alongside a dubstep loaded trap remix of MUST DIE!’s Neo Tokyo, too. Taylor Thomas is obviously a production chameleon of many colors, his tracks scintillating and thrilling.

OFFICIAL VID: CANT – Believe

October 21, 2011

I think I shared the track previously, but here’s the video for it. It’s a strange video montage made of old VHS clips of lights in the sky and peoples’ reactions upon seeing them. Kind of odd. Perhaps there’s some sort of UFO obsession going on with CANT? Well, the song is pretty genius, so they can do whatever random thing they want, I suppose.
