740751_520591081308781_1362131687_o2013 is going to be a big year for this duo known as “Oliver” who are responsible for some of the funkiest, toughest, and most diverse dance music today, so if you’re unfamiliar, better perk your ears up a bit.  The pronoun is the common thread for Oligee and U-Tern, one first name, one last, but either way, their unique productions have grabbed the attention of Fools Gold Recs, which fact speaks for itself.  Their nu-disco funk vibe is rebirthing now what our parents got down to in the seventies but utilizing our new technology, of course.  With a forthcoming release of their Mechanical EP out with Fools Gold next week, this weekend presents the perfect opportunity to get to know this eclectic pair that the world will be buzzing about in a few short days.

598358_471663126209814_2103207601_nSorrow. is my go-to guy for ambient and well-composed down-tempo, more relaxing electronic tunes.  He’s been producing for quite sometime now, cranking out everything from dubstep to garage, hip-hop, ambient, electro and beyond.  Maybe its his Birmingham UK hometown or some unknown personal event, but the talented producer seems to stay on the more thought-provoking and minimalistic end of the spectrum when it comes to his music.  Wrapping a great deal of emotion in tiny delicate three to four minute packages, Sorrow has time and time again proved that you don’t need overpowering bass or distracting laser and heavy synths to provoke feeling and reaction from the listeners.  So whether a stressful moment seeking relief, or a long car ride, Sorrow can provide your soundtrack to zen.
