IS IT YOU: Beat Tape (Full Circle)Conrad CliftonInfinity Pool Recordings
After receiving valued tastemaker support from The FADER, Magnetic Magazine, Acid Stag, BBC Radio 1xtra, Kitsuné and others on his ‘Get Your Whole Life’ album, Conrad Clifton returns with a new full-length project, expanding on one of its central themes. 'IS IT YOU: Beat Tape (Full Circle)' is a 10-song concept that's built around a selection from his previous album, and serves as a bonus offering to fans. While 'Get Your Whole Life' is arguably Conrad’s most dancefloor ready project to date, he was able to leave space for one tune that stood out in the collection - a rare, sample-heavy hip-hop instrumental called “Is It You?”. Here, we got a glimpse of some creative origins, similarly heard on Yelawolf’s “Down” (Shady Records, 2014). The listeners wanted more, and Conrad doesn’t disappoint - adding 9 unreleased head-bops, that cohesively glide into one another with a perfect flow. Musically, Conrad always wants to give more insight into his life, and journey as a creative. From project to project, the genres are fluid, and he's never been limited to one style. With the Beat Tape, he brings us full circle, to the history of where he started as a beatmaker. Some of the songs were developed 13 years ago, like “Hi, Still Here” - while others are fresh-made, like “dreambutdontsleep”. Each track displays his obsession with intricately chopped samples (also sourced from varying genres). A true nod to the greats like Madlib and J Dilla (“High.” is a tribute to “Hi.” from Dilla’s ‘Donuts’ album). All tracks have been updated and remastered, in the interest of creating something timeless. “I've been impatiently sitting on a few of these tracks for years, waiting for the perfect time to share them. I felt that the start of a new decade was fitting. This is also, officially the 20th release on Infinity Pool - which comes in 2020, so it really feels like a milestone," says Conrad. "I'm trying to connect those dots and close the gap between my global listener base, and the people who knew me before, as HeadROC from the beat battles in Atlanta. I want to share all of the creative aspects of myself, and this Beat Tape is like the foundation to everything.”

Holotrope: A Movement Towards Wholeness In 4 Parts Fresh on the heels of his Billboard charting album “Sci-Fi Lullabies”, Bluetech returns with a deep dive into genre defying electronic music on his new double LP “Holotrope”. Imagined as a psychonauts journey into inner space and back, “Holotrope” contains 4 distinct continuously mixed journeys, each designed to fill a single side of vinyl. As the album unfolds through the four movements of Descending, Expanding, Ascending & Integrating, Bluetech displays his signature penchant for ping-ponging melodic interplay, creative modular synthesis, atmospheric sound design and dubwise fx manipulation. Touching down in ambient, downtempo, space disco, electro, dub house and spacehop territories, “Holotrope” still contains a cohesive aesthetic which is instantly recognizable as the Bluetech sound. Inspired by Holotropic Breathwork, meditation, lucid dreaming and journeys through the imaginal realms, “Holotrope” presents a map of movement through layers of perception. Starting with a centering in the physical body and descending into the realms of expanded awareness and ego dissolution, the music charts a serpentine path through ever deep states of being. Following up a highly prolific year of releases, Bluetech invites you to #jointhemoment and journey through Holotrope.
It’s midnight on a moonless night, suspended between yesterday and tomorrow. We are facing equal parts calamity and calm. We dream the dreams of our sons and daughters, whilst fending away nightmares created by ourselves, the authors. It is a Conundrum we live in by sleep, and while we wake, our worlds are as much defined by our circumstances as by the mental perspectives we bring to them. We must choose our thoughts and words carefully as storytellers of our minds and of the world we inhabit. Transported by Goya and our suspension of disbelief, our stories may temporarily become reality. What do we want our reality to be? What is our reason for bee-ing? The Japanese concept of Ikigai (生き甲斐) aptly defines "a reason for being” as the source of value in one's life or the things that make one's life worthwhile. What do we live for? What is the reason you wake in the morning? Whatever it may be, be gentle on yourself and your kin of this only planet we call home. We are entwined with it, and it with us. May you find your Kilig — that thrilling feeling of butterflies in your stomach that you feel when you are positively alive and in love. And be assured: Even the darkest night gives way to dawn.

RevontuletFoxtailThe Rust Music
The Utah-based audiophile and producer Foxtail reinvents his own wheel with Revontulet. Foxtail’s sound is categorically fluid in every way, and he succeeds in delivering on that fluidity yet again. Each aspect of his songwriting process has continued to mature, from the precise production to the crisp engineering. This maturation process has resulted in a tonally balanced set of five songs that together weave an emotional membrane. Each track pairs off with the one ahead of it in a spacious, harmonious dance. The synthesis patching across the release is consistent and direct, creating a continuity that holds the record together like glue. Two tracks feature careful, syncopated vinyl cuts that dart through the percussion layers, combining dancefloor sentimentalities with downtempo ambience. Foxtail’s rhythmic structures are concise and hypnotic, carrying each composition straight from headphones to headspace. Returning fans will remember his last release, Kitsune, as a melodious terminal into the Foxtail audio mythology. Revontulet is its natural successor, honing in on and evolving his undeniably dynamic style. Grouped together with his first release, Vosmana, these three EP’s makeup a dynamic trilogy that spans across the musical mindset of Foxtail.

A circadian rhythm is a day in the life of all earthlings, the predictable fluctuations of our physical, behavioral and/or mental states over the course of a roughly 24-hour period as influenced by sunlight and temperature. With this concept as the title of JPOD's second full-length, one can see the clear yin-yang to this album, all of the acoustic instrumentation blending in so organically with digital sound craft that the seams are practically invisible, swirls of black and white in balance. "To the Light" takes you up, with its emotive vocal lines and strummed guitars effervescently supporting a slick downtempo beat, gliding directly into "Midnight Oil," with its fat brass, echoed piano, and staccato vocal snippets lending it a touch of darkness. Later on, tracks like "Moonlit" and "Till Dawn" also seem to interpret the album title, but the theme isn't so rigidly literal as it is interpretively implied. Circadian Rhythms is not an album drowning in messages so much as it creates a feeling, a sense of rounding into form and being in the pocket, of hitting one's proverbial peak and aging gracefully. JPOD's debut full-length Halfsteppin strutted out confidently in 2012, but a lot of life has been lived since then. In many ways, he is the same old beat chef we always knew, a staple at Bass Coast and Shambhala, frequent collaborator with Stickybuds as the StickyPod Connection, and ace producer of the tastiest womp gland-tickling bass music. Yet, he has clearly matured, both as a producer and as a young parent. Circadian Rhythms continues the trajectory outlined on his Taking a Deep Breath EP from 2014, a move towards more sophisticated song-writing and polished production, incorporating his worldly backpacker influences and peak time main stage aesthetic into a style that reflects the total sum of his age and experience. As such, his sophomore album pulses with a fatherly feeling of deep caring and quiet strength. From his turntablist origins to his mastery of Ableton, the progress charted in the seven years between albums is obvious. Where he was once consistently over-the-top in quirky glitch-hop funk, JPOD now demonstrates unimaginable depth in stunning subtlety, with fifteen mid-tempo jams that feel lovingly nurtured rather than slightly imposed. Make no mistake, he still brings the party, but he hits you in the feels too, delivering as much in the way of mood-drenched meditations for headphones as rib rumblers for the twilight hours. Although that Spoonbill-esque good natured, trip tweaked, mutant funktronica freak fest style is still apparent on "Right Now," Circadian Rhythms generally relaxes into a warm vibe that is all JPOD's own. Suffice to say, there ain't no halfsteppin' on this album. Circadian Rhythms is a long, confident stride towards ultimate perfection. Enjoy the trip! Even though this release is available at over 300 outlets, we encourage you to purchase from the addic.tech store. We are very generous to our artists, and by purchasing from this site you support them directly with no middleman!
