Today’s Untz: Fade (Etherwood VIP) / Jakwob
Here’s a pretty track from Jakwob that has been given the drum n bass treatment from Etherwood. Soothing bass for the soul. #untz/tom
Today’s Untz: Attracting Flies / AlunaGeorge
‘A lot of bands meet as kids at school. Others come together after an over-enthusiastic conversation about music at some random party. Aluna Francis and George Reid however, met through the internet.
While their online encounter is more MySpace than Match.com, it was in fact through a mutual respect for each other’s work that led them to go on to form AlunaGeorge. Now together for just barely a year, the talented duo have been churning out a series of infectious mixes which fuse Francis’ sweet vocal harmonies with the hushed electronic stylings courtesy of Reid.’
‘Attracting Flies’ clearly shows they have no intention of slowing down their momentum. With remixes due out from Jamie Jones & Baauer expect big things from the original and the slew of remixes sure to be released. #untz.tom
Today’s Untz : Shine / Digitaria
Brazilian duo Digitaria get set to ‘Shine’ even brighter with a highly anticipated second EP for the one and only Hot Creations. A potent mix of sweetly sensual vocals and dreamy electro pop with a kick for the dance floor. #untz/tom

Today’s Untz: Only You Can Show Me (feat Mereki) / Goldroom
As a long time Goldroom fan (musically and when he contributed often to his blog/label Binary Entertainment) I can honestly say I’ve always loved everyone of his productions or remixes.
I’ve been to LA a number of times, but every time I listen to him I swear I feel like I’ve lived there for years. And I’m not talking West Hollywood. I’m talking everything that’s great about LA… warm weather, palm trees, sunshine, beautiful people, good vibes… His music just oozes with it.
I’m planning on catching him here in SF soon with Viceroy. I’m pumped to check out his live setup. “Only You Can Show Me” instantly seems like a song that will make the transition to a live band seamlessly especially with that percussion.
Mereki, featured on this track, happens to be a part of the live show as well. If the pictures Goldroom loved to put up on his blog say anything she’s surely just as attractively LA as her voice is beautiful. I’m looking forward to this one. #untz/tom
Today’s Induntz: Light Out / Javelin
Javelin is out with a new album and this is the first song I’ve heard so far. What do you think?
Hi Beams is their highly anticipated second full length album on Luaka Bop and represents a more holistic approach to writing and recording. Lyrics and vocal harmonies are for the ﬁrst time fore- grounded in decidedly songlike forms, while songs are made to be performed in concert rather than as a patchwork of fragmented if glittery shards.
Today’s Indie: Wolves / Valentina
‘it’s just a sound that your heart makes when you sleep’
Sleep. I haven’t been doing it lately. The bewitching vocals from Italian-English songstress Valentina in the opening bit of Wolves may be enough to lull me under though. The song starts with a slow and steady restraint, but then brightens into something more theatrical and pulling. Brilliant.
Up until recently Valentina had been lending her chops to play with the boys, including the likes of Two Door Cinema Club and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, but she’s doing her own thing now, releasing a five track EP on Greco-Roman. Happy Friday. #indie/tory
Today’s Untz: This Is How We Do It (Viceroy Jetlife Remix) / Montell Jordan
Viceroy is certainly loved in and around the hypem blog world so I imagine this has been posted by a zillion blogs already. There’s a reason for it though. He continues to blast us with remixed tropical sounds to a number of indie songs as well as crucial remixes of 90′s classics. He has some great original productions as well.
For his 5th installment of his Jetlife remixes he takes on Montell Jordan who himself praised Viceroy for this fresh take on his hit single. I still can’t believe I haven’t seen him being from the Bay area and all. This needs to change… and change soon. #untz/tom
Today’s Untz: Spiderwebbed / Stumbleine
Emerging from the ever fertile music scene of Bristol, UK, rising electronic producer Stumbleine has already built a sizeable following with several self-released EPs and a recent compilation album, in addition to collaborative outings with fellow producer ASA. He also reports for active duty as one third of dubstep envelope pushers Swarms, whose music has found favour among tastemaker DJs such as Mary Anne Hobbs.
On Spiderwebbed, his enrapturing, genre transcending debut album proper; Stumbleine beautifully showcases the multifaceted nature of his music, seamlessly weaving fractured beats, synths, hazy distorted guitars and soulful vocals, to create glowing, expansive sonic vistas.
