Recently released trailer for the second season of OITNB has just aired. For those of you who have not yet seen the first season, the main plot of the show is about a woman who is serving time for carrying drug money for a heroin trade. However there are many stories being told in the walls of this prison. From the trailer of season two it looks like the plot is thickening and getting much more twisted. I think we can expect to see a lot more deeper shit going down and more deviant humor.

James Jirat is an Australian based artist/designer who’s style falls under a few different categories. The best way I could describe it is a cross between horror, retro and pop surrealism. James has an impressive roster of clients including Adidas, FRONT Magazine, Tamara Sky, and recently with A-Trak. Jirat has also been featured in a few magazines such as Acclaim, Complex and Sneaky. Check out more of James’ work on his official site.

Ben Marriott is an illustrator based out of Sydney Australia. I’d like to think of him as a silly surrealist. As an artist his main priority is to make people smile and laugh when they see one of his illustrations. He films lots of process videos to show people how he creates his drawings. Check out the video above of one of my favorite pieces and subscribe to Ben’s YouTube channel.

Fresh out of the Fifi Rong collection is her “Next Pursuit” EP. Just to brush you up on Fifi’s bio, She is originally from Beijing and is currently living in London. She is a producer, songwriter and amazing singer. Next Pursuit features six tracks with guest producers Sadsic and OP9. Fifi is a strong producer compositionally and harmoniously. She is hypnotizing with an eerie and enticing persona. My personal favorite tracks on this EP are Cold In You and Intimacy. Check them out below and buy the EP in its entirety from iTunes or Bandcamp.

Fifi Rong – Intimacy

Tokimonsta never fails to execute a remix without triggering my emotions. I really don’t have words to describe this remix, but I know when Toki is producing I won’t be disappointed. She has a strong skill set with her craft. Melodically, her music provokes my feelings and I love that she can do that. Cop the remix below and stay tuned for more.

It’s been a cool minute since Bart B More has released an EP. Bart has a series of epic tracks in his portfolio including Brap, Lay Around, and some legendary remix’s such as Alan Braxe’sIntro” the Crookers “No Security” and Cee Lo Green’s “Fuck You“. This new EP, Indigo, is a great comeback. I don’t have a favorite track, each tune has its own magic that doesn’t outshine any of the others. Its a nice family of classic House / Electro tracks. Cop the EP from Beatport.

Bart B More – The New World

Bart B More – Revival

Bart B More – Crossing Borders

The latest EP release “IVRY” from 100s on Fools Gold records is a lush combination of funk and hip hop. The EP composed by a strong team of producers including Joe Wax, A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs, 100s, Silvamore and more. My personal favorites so far are Slide On Ya, Fuckin Around and Different Type Of Love (feat. Cherub). IVRY is a perfect throwback sound of the hip hop music I remember listening to as a kid in the 90s. Cop the tracks below or download the full EP for free at Fools Gold Records.

I’m a little late on discovering Wilkinson‘s Afterglow music video, but it’s an awesome track with an amazing video so I’m gonna post about it anyways. Wilkinson is a producer based out of the UK and is currently on RAM Records. Afterglow is a combination of indie and drumb and bass. The video is a well thought out interpretation of what most relationships can be like. Check it out and cop the track below.

HWLS is a duo from Perth, Australia. They are currently working on their debut EP. Individually you can find the members Ta-ku and Kit Pop through their personal soundcloud’s.
