Ultravid - Clan of Wow by Ultravid
This is definaiely an act to look out for. Based out of Ghent Belgium Ultravid has been putting together some top quality originals and not to mention some unreal remixes. Look out for these up a comers. I'm sure there will be a noticeable splash. Out now with a New EP, "Clan of Wow" it has brought together a sense of tropical bass and queazy synths.
Here are some of the tracks that i just can't help but listen to twice or sometimes just on repeat.

The dutch house scene has introduced itself to Vancouver. The genre is in his hands, molding to his every liking, and taking the populous along with him. Along with the average, big house djs are playing his tracks worldwide, and hopefully is only the beginning of a long journey for him. He's made many proud, and regardless of your dancing skills.... he will get you up on your feet. This is one of those artists that have nothing to hide, and shows everything that they're able, and when it's done Afrojack's way, there is no shame for anyone. Take a peek at some of his profound work, and I'm sure you will find it hard to oppose the Swedish House Mafia's interest in what he does.

Having a late return from Sasquatch last weekend, and strenuously moving into a new home, I've really felt the need for embracing each, and every relaxing moment that I am able to conjure. Whether it be a movie, sitting on my cat-torn leather sofa, or everybody's favourite... listening to some great music.
From Barcelona, Delorean has stolen my emotions this week. Their fruitful wave of glo-fi / hypnagonic pop has a means of attacking your heart, and leaving you satisfyingly limp. There is no doubt that their tunes are perfectly summery, and can create a great soundtrack for the beach. As a clear depiction, I think this is where every listener feels at home for those few minutes.
"Seasun" is fierce. It builds slowly and explodes in all the right places. Despite generally being a verse-chorus electro pop band, they don't necessarily follow-up with vocals all that much. In comparison, I suppose their sound could be associated with Cut-Copy, and can definitely be amended for their smooth remixing, as oppose to heavy bass, and that shitty trancy tiesto bs.

Delorean - Warmer Places
