Lyric Hood has announced her first solo EP, 'Nineteen/11:11'.
Joining her father Robert Hood as Floorplan in 2016 and subsequently releasing the 'Victorious' album, Lyric also remixed 'Never Grow Old' for the duo's 'Let the Church' EP.
On her solo debut, Lyric produces a house heater in the form of 'Nineteen' and closes the EP with thunderous techno on '11:11'.
Earlier this year Floorplan released EP, 'So Glad/I Feel Him Moving'.
In his own life, Cédric Steinmyller plays two roles. There’s the quiet, observant young man, whose crystal blue eyes peer downward as he speaks. And then there is Klingande, the sensational commercial house icon who dominates the decks with the same confident ferocity that’s made him one to watch since 2012. When we connect with him during Miami Music Week, we meet both personas. Though seemingly shy upon introduction, Steinmyller possesses a friendly and relaxed demeanor. “It’s very easy to connect with people here,” he tells DJ Mag.

MYNY, Kalyma and D.Y.A’s Berlin-based Solide label are launching a new V/A EP series this month. The first edition of Solid(e) State will be released on 24th May and features tracks from Rhode & Brown, Shan and Cosmo & Kramer.
The label has, since its inception in 2015, been mainly used as an outlet for its founders’ music. Broadening its scope now, ‘Solid(e) State Vol.1’ swerves from the uplifting melodic house and deep grooves and Rhode & Brown and Cosmo & Kramer to the jolting electro of Rush Hour’s Shan.
It’s no surprise that DJ Bowlcut’s tracks on labels like Honey Badger Records and UNFRAME SEOUL and on popular channels like Definite Party Material and Moskalus have been getting attention from the likes of Josey Rebelle, Moxie and Violet. Shrouded ambient beds pour over rattling breaks like a fog, making for a sound that is at once mesmerizing and club-fit.
Daniel Fisher covers nine different aliases, and even more genres, subgenres (and sub-subgenres) on his latest album for his NYC-based label Allergy Season, 'It Takes A Village: The Sounds Of Physical Therapy'.
From the blustery electro his his most renowned moniker Physical Therapy, by way of trippy hip-hop from Green Buddha and ambient as Car Culture there's a lot of ground covered. "Eclectic" is the most well-worn of words, but Fisher has proven as both producer, DJ and label-runner that he is deserving of the descriptor.
Kaytranada has dropped a new track, ‘Dysfunctional’, his first new music since the 'Nothin Like U/Chances' EP in 2018, which featured Ty Dolla $ign and Sha Lia.
