“Belong To The Rhythm (Don Diablo Edit)” by King Arthur ft. Michael Meaco

king arthur

Don Diablo’s recruiting talent for his brand new label Hexagon. King Arthur is one of his newest signees who is the brains behind “Belong To The Rhythm.” Like with many of Don Diablo’s tracks, King Arthur concentrates on the piano chord progressions to drive the track. The drop is where things get really interesting.

Here’s a few words from King Arthur about the track:

This track is special to me. It’s my first real single. When Don reached out about signing the track I was really excited. The first release on his label is amazing and for him to sign this as the next single showed me how much he believed in the song as well. The feedback has been amazing. Having people I’ve looked up to for years playing the track is something I’ll never forget. I’m excited for the world to hear this song!

“Mrs.Shade (Mr.Tuner’s Black Box Mix)” by Bad tuner

Today we introduce you to a brand new producer who is very much a part of the underground, only known by the name ‘Bad tuner’. The description on Bad tuner’s Facebook page leaves us with this misterious message:

Reminiscent of sundown, or perhaps the sounds of an old piano laced with gold. This is bad tuner – the late night gambler; the early morning smoker.

This track is very dark, not typically the type of music I tend to listen to. But the soothing rhythm of “Mrs.Shade” caught my ear and as soon as I knew it I was entranced in the chill vibes of this techno track. This track was featured on Onamazu‘s 12 track compilation that includes unreleased tracks from artists all across the globe. After scouring the internet we found little information into the identity of Bad tuner, and with just this lone track found on Bad tuner’s Soundcloud I guess we will just have to wait for another release to learn a little more about this talented producer.  [Read more…]
