ShiShi drops latest track “Damelo”

Global dembow seems to be a recurring theme in NYC producer ShiShi’s work. A cursory scan of ShiShi’s Soundcloud page shows the “Global Dembow” tag occurring often alongside other internationally-minded fusion genres (“Bollywood House,” “Eastern Trap”). ShiShi’s work itself — joining, melding, mashing musical styles — is fascinating and exciting.

Both undeniably of the moment and yet steeped in traditional beats and rhythms, his latest track “Damelo” shows how societal globalization has brought the sonic commonalities in international rhythms & genres (reggaeton, bhangra, soca, for example) to a convergence in modern music production. The result is a club-ready banger with deep traditional music roots. Other ShiShi tracks explore similar concepts in perhaps even more daring (and rewarding?) ways. “Aarti” is buoyed by house production with bhangra-esque vocals. The result is a stunning, A.R. Rahman worthy work. -juan leon

diNMachine Releases "Chop Shop" Single

“Chop Shop” from NYC's diNMachine is a bouncy, trap-y blur of genres that coalesces into an inventive and accessible burst of noise-pop. Tones shifts, rhythms start and stop, new sounds come out of left field — and somehow it all coheres. The sounds are disparate but always feel intentional.

It’s a testament to diNMachine composer Michael J. Schumacher’s skill at creating a challenging sonic palette that remains effortlessly melodic. At times funky, at times weird, “Chop Shop” is the type of track that welcomes repeat listens for the sheer pleasure of exploring and discovering the skill innately weaved throughout the composition.

diNMachine's Facebook page describes the band as a "pop music" project. That's true. But it's pop music prismed through the lens of influences that range from the Beatles to Autechre. -juan leon

Xenia Rubinos, Sammus and Olga Bell release collaborative track

Strange and wonderful things can happen when three talented artists from completely different musical backgrounds join creative forces. One of these "things" is Levitating (streaming below), a mostly hip hop track that merges Sammus' rhymes with Olga Bell's European flavored electronic production and Xenia Rubinos Hispanic music influences. Born from an instrumental penned by Bell, the track is a perfect example of what NYC is (and has been for awhile): an irreversible melting pot of races and culture, where positive collaboration trumps any difference and distrust. The message here is that (hard) work and curiosity are the best antidotes to intolerance, and these prolific ladies know something about it. Check out the track below, and catch Xenia Rubinos at the Ecstatic Music Fest at the Kaufman Center on January 27th.

Project Diem brings dreamy synth-pop to Alphaville, 12.13

Project Diem offers a different vision of the synth-pop aesthetic, one of lush melodies countered by delicate synths and soulful vocals. Refreshingly, the vocals are left relatively untouched by reverb and are left to deliver themselves earnestly. The duo works to combine a synth-driven sensibility with an emotional quality that is both raw yet approachable. The "mid-fi" production gives voice to a youthful and surprisingly catchy angst, one that blends in with the changing seasons and failed relationships. Make sure to check out Project Diem at Alphaville, 12.13. - Amanda Ogea
