San Francisco-based graphic artist with a passion for ambient electronic music Scott Hansen, aka Tycho, has finally shared some long-awaited new music. “Awake” finds the perfect balance between hypnotic guitar strums and tranquil background atmosphere, and should be a strong indicator of things to come on his forthcoming album, a follow-up to 2011′s Dive LP, out sometime next year on Ghostly International. Take a load off below.
If the change in season has encouraged similar change in the romantic aspect of your life, the self-explanatory new Songs To Break Up To EP from Australia’s Ta-ku may be just the thing for you.

After pulling us to the edge of our seats all Summer, Kaskade has offered up a full stream of his expansive 10th studio album, Atmosphere.
Switching things up from “Closet Drake Fans,” the ever-prolific Ta-ku has revealed “We Were In Love,” an intimate new edit of Jhené Aiko’s “Comfort Inn Ending” freestyle. Falling closely in line with “I Miss You,” this smooth, slow-burning jam flips breathing into beats on its way to becoming another versatile display from the Australian native. You can download “We Were In Love” for free below, and find it on Ta-ku’s new Songs To Break Up To EP dropping next month on HW&W Recordings.
Houston-based producer Dpat – the same guy responsible for the beat on Wiz Khalifa and The Weeknd’s “Remember You” – is gearing up for the release of his new album, In Bloom, on forward-thinking LA imprint Soulection. To follow up the brilliant lead single “Above Us,” the 23 year-old beatmaker has recruited creative specialist Jeff Vash (who you may know from XXYYXX’s “About You” video) for one of the most accurate visual representations of a song I’ve seen in recent memory.
You can watch and download “Bloom” for free below, and look for In Bloom out in full on August 27. From what we’ve heard so far, it’s going to be something special.
In case you missed the news earlier this year, Xaphoon Jones has effectively parted ways with Chiddy Bang. He began to phase himself out of the duo’s live act as far back as last November, and has since been focused on producing music for other artists (although the group’s June announcement implied Jones would play a “musical role” in upcoming Chiddy Bang material).
