This past Thursday, we made our way over to The Exchange in MPLS, to check out the first Amplitude since relaunch – needless to say it was a success. The night featured the likes of XXYYXX, Falls and more. This was the first night of eight, featuring some talented producers, right here in MPLS. Make sure to stay tuned for more events to come for the next seven weeks, every Thursday. Take a look at the current schedule for Amplitude here, as there are more dope acts to come.

We have shown some love from Jakarta Records out of Berlin in the past. The records company holds a solid lineup of vets and upcoming producers. If you haven’t explored their music, now is a good time to get started. After hearing the new upcoming producer, Rascal, who hails from West Germany – it is quite refreshing to play. With the opening track, “Elhae’s Joint,” which features horns and deep base, to the mesmerizing “Bass Down,” Rascal shows that he won’t be going anywhere but up. Press play and enjoy as the 19 year old appears to have something to prove.
As promised, Thriftworks has released Fadest, his third and final installment to the series. With Fade, Faderand Fadest now available for our listening pleasure – Thriftworks has brought us an entire collection of experimental electronic music (54 tracks in total) to groove to. All three parts possess a very unique-original sound to them, solidifying Thriftworks as one solid producer. Incase you missed the first three, peep em below.
One week ago, we posted Thriftworks’ first part to his three part series, Fade. Yesterday, the CA producer released part two, entitled Fader. The 33 track record hits heavy from start to finish – even with 1hr and 30mn of music, Thriftworks keeps you tuned in. Fader opens up with more curiosity and less of a ominous tone than Fade. It is interesting to see how he has progressed with his overall tone and melody’s on his second release – it will be interesting to hear what he does on part III. Press play and let Thriftworks take you through a one of a kind journey with Fader.
The DC based artist, Arise Wise, released this fresh track off of his upcoming album “Every Mornin”. The instrumental features some dope samples blended with a smooth electro hip-hop. As cheesy as it sounds, this is the perfect cruise track to rise to. Peep the single and stay tuned for more from the upcoming producer.
One of our favorite local producers, sloslylove, recently released his latest album The Haunted. The album features sloslylove’s signature use of synths and lively bass lines, which make him one of the most interesting and talented producers in our area. The Haunted, is now available for download and most importantly, you can purchase this record on Vinyl for $20. Make sure to take a listen of sloslylove’s latest album and continue to support local artists.
The Porn & Chicken crew continue to throw some of the wildest parties any Monday night has ever seen. Last Monday, their XMAS in July party went down and it looks like a damn good time. These guys are on the up and up with events planned in other cities and an increasing amount of music festivals. Check out their last party above and make sure to keep an eye out for next Monday’s addition.
The Porn & Chicken crew recently caught up with Whiiite for what looks like an awesome time. Presented by Homeless Cop, this PNC party looks absolutely insane, not that they all aren’t. If you’re never been to one of these, you’re slippin. Step your game up and make sure to hit up Evil Olive next Monday for the next party.
The young twenty something year old, Kinetik Groove (Austin O’Meara), recently released his EP Picking Up The Pieces. The 13 track album is free for download and features some heavy electro-hip-hop. These fresh beats possess uplifting melodies with baselines that pack a punch. It’s interesting to see how different the music scene is around the CO/KS area, as there are more similar upcoming artists such as The Floozies becoming nationally known. Take a listen and make sure to keep your eyes and ears peeled for more from Kinetik Groove.
