Derek Pope - Hyrule Temple

Sometimes it takes a few years of trial and error to find the breakthrough, and Los Angeles transplant Derek Pope is no stranger to sonic experimentation. After finding his footing in two self-produced EPs, Sunken City Redux and The Introverted Socialite, Pope kicks off his 2018 season with the first single off his upcoming self produced 10-track LP, We're All Strangers.

 "Hyrule Temple" jumps out of the plane almost immediately, with buzzing 808s cemented underneath a synth line that makes you feel like there's some sort of treasure chest right around the corner. Pope bounces between melodic cadences: "Won't you run it back, Hyrule Temple map? / Let me float like that" - a nod to his personal vices, as well as a reference to the "Hyrule Temple" Super Smash Bros. Brawl map (featuring a temple that literally floats) and, possibly, a much simpler time. 

We're All Strangers comes out February 16. Tune in below for the latest.

Youngface - 'bifld' | @youngfacetheboy

"I wrote the song 'bifld' after a breakup I had right before this last summer. I had made the beat at 3am one night, and the hook "bitch I feel like dancing" popped into my head. I fell in love with it, and I wrote the song, mainly reassuring myself that I don't need anyone else and that I can do splendid on my own" says artist Youngface out of Woburn, MA on his new single.

The beat consists of a dark piano with playful, Gatsby-ish chords. The song talks about how Face is just working on hisself, focused on making music in his basement (the place he would go to write throughout the summer), getting money (poking fun at his job at a burrito restaurant), and being surrounded with great people everyday. Check it out and let us know your thoughts:
