Premiered by Pitchfork, "Weekends" is a collaboration between LA's Classixx & Local Natives. Another collaborative single will come shortly.
“These two songs were made as a collaboration in the true sense of the word,” Classixx said in a statement. “We met the Local Natives guys at a wedding in Mexico and immediately connected. They’re such a vibrant live band and it was important to us that their musicianship and vocal harmony came through. The tunes were a group effort and it was a privilege to work on them together, it felt like being a part of a small community.”

Jimmy Edgar, one of electronic music's most versatile and unique producers, has just shared a futuristic double A-side single for collaborations with hyperkinetic pop producer SOPHIE and fellow Detroiter/hip-hop mainstay Danny Brown. The new singles arrive in the wake of Edgar’s collaboration with Hudson Mohawke earlier this year, making for a sprawling trilogy of genre-bending, boundary-pushing forrays through underground electronica and hip-hop, illustrating the breadth of his vision and talent.
"SOPHIE and I met at Fabric in London in the 2010s and since then we have performed live together as well as worked together with artists such as Charli XCX and Vince Staples,” states Edgar. “‘METAL’ is reflective of our love for designer sounds finely sculpted on boutique computer equipment.” The song arrives alongside “GET UP," a tough love motivational set to springy synth flourishes and bass rattling throughout which Danny Brown does irreparable microphone damage.
Matt Wilkinson of Apple Music premiered "Caption" by Rarelyalways on his radio show recently claiming: "This is where people like Arlo Parks, Fontaines D.C. & slowthai got their break when they were starting out. Today we add to that list another incredible talent. Rarelyalways is about to blow up in a big way." Shortly thereafter, Pitchfork shared the track and said of the artist: "he synthesizes his influences while effortlessly carving out a niche for himself." Expect more from Rarelyalways later this year with his upcoming EP Baby Buffalo.
